Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell turn sex and song into pure musical joy.

USA 1953
Dir Howard Hawks
With Marilyn Monroe, Jane Russell, Charles Coburn
Certificate U

Monroe (as gold-digging Lorelei) and Russell (as man-eating Dorothy) are the smartest, sassiest leads found in any musical. Monroe has the boys eating out of her pink silk gloves in the joyfully cynical ‘Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend’, but Russell almost meets her match in ‘Ain’t There Anyone Here for Love?’ as she tackles a gym full of semi-naked men. A wondrous Technicolor tonic.

Robin Baker

The screening on Thu 28 Nov will be introduced by season programmer Robin Baker.
