Anita Loos’ screenplay satirises the commercially-endorsed notion of romantic love and American consumerism through two highly intelligent and sexually-domineering women; Monroe’s Lorelei Lee (the gold-digger), and Russell’s Dorothy Shaw (the man-eater). The two showgirl friends hilariously romp through mishaps, song-and-dance routines and costume changes to get what they want, but it’s their own togetherness that wins out in the end.
