They may just be two little girls from Little Rock, but there is nothing diminutive about this glorious, jewel-encrusted Hollywood classic. Marilyn Monroe sparkles, Jane Russell smoulders and the all-male US Olympic athletics team are perhaps the campest thing you’ve ever seen, in this classic movie musical which gets a well-deserved sing-a-long treatment. There’s not a step out of place nor a misfired gag in Howard Hawks’ spectacular comedy about gold digger Lorelei and man-hungry Dorothy, two showgirls sailing to Paris with a private investigator on their tail and more diamonds than a girl could wish for. Whether you are blonde, brunette, redhead or silver, we actually don’t have a preference, as long as you come dressed up in your showgirl finest and be prepared to sing your heart out!
