Product description

Product Description

1950s musical comedy starring Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell. Accompanied by her stage partner and best friend, Dorothy Shaw (Russell), showgirl Lorelei Lee (Monroe) sets sail for Paris, where she plans to meet up with and marry her wealthy beau, Gus Esmond Jr. (Tommy Noonan). However, Lorelei's love of diamonds threatens to get both girls into a jam as Ernie Malone (Elliott Reid), the private detective hired by Mr Esmund Sr. (Taylor Holmes) to keep a close eye on his son's bride-to-be, joins them on the ship.

From Amazon.co.uk

Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Anita Loos' old story from the 1920s about a pair of single women in search of husbands, gets a makeover in Howard Hawks' 1953 musical. The remake stars Jane Russell and Marilyn Monroe as two friends who go to Paris looking for mates. The film is charged by Hawks's stylish snap, a famous set piece or two (Monroe descending that staircase while singing "Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend"), Russell's wit and songs by Leo Robin and Jule Styne. The film may largely be a fluff project best remembered as a showcase for its leading actresses, but then Monroe and Russell rarely got such extended opportunities to prove that they were more than cinematic icons.--Tom Keogh, Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Russell and Monroe are great together, although maybe a bit predictable in the story line,
a film with some great sound tracks, especially Monroe doing 'Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend'
always an outright winner. Thoroughly enjoyable,
I wish that the film makers of today would take note
on how to produce a good film, without gratuitous violence and swearing.

A classic film from the golden age of Hollywood.

With such icon songs as a "Diamond is a girls best friend," often copied but never equaled .

Would recommend.

Marilyn is at her most gorgeous in this film and there is the bonus of Jane Russell. Of course the highlight is Marilyn singing 'Diamonds are a girls best friend' but the other songs and costumes are also very good. Nice non-challenging storyline lets you focus on Marilyn.
