Gentlemen Prefer Blondes
Howard Hawks, 1953
USA | English | 91 minutes

Lorelei (Marilyn Monroe) and Dorothy (Jane Russell) are just "Two Little Girls from Little Rock”—lounge singers on a transatlantic cruise, working their way to Paris while enjoying the company of any eligible men they might meet along the way. Russell’s flat sarcasm and Monroe’s social-climber put-on make them a delightful team (and Monroe’s performance underlines her brilliant control as a comic performer). The famous musical numbers dazzle with rich colors and wink-wink lyrics, but underneath there’s also a touching tale of friendship tested and Hawks’s clever take on gender politics.
