5.0 out of 5 stars They don't make 'em like this anymore!, 18 Mar. 2000
Grable, Monroe and Bacall in one film? Hollywood couldn't afford to do that these days. But in this piece of CinemaScope history, you can lose yourself in this expensively mounted comedy of three models in search of millionaire husbands in New York. Bacall is the brains of the trio, renting a plush Sutton Place appartment as a trap to lure wealthy suitors. Monroe is a myopic bubblehead who refuses to wear her glasses in the company of men, which causes her to bump into waiters and walls,and ends up on the wrong plane, thus meeting her own "millionaire." Grable as the slightly overaged model has some great lines (and her legs still fabulous) as she goes off to Maine and find loves in penniless Rory Calhoun. Great fun - great girls - and great leading me in Calhoun, Cameron Mitchell, and David Wayne. Also great is the fact that Amazon.co.uk are now stocking these classics in the Pal System, which makes it easier for European fans to purchase. Well done.
