Aro Favourite Gentlemen Prefer Blondes


USA 1953, 87 minutes
Dir. Howard Hawks
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Comedy / Musical


Aroview: Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell are out to rustle a millionaire or two on a seacruise to France in this glistening confection based on the stage musical comedy.

Contrasting Russell's street-smart party gal, Marilyn Monroe is at her bombshell best as she gloriously hams up her 'dumb blonde' persona for what is the perhaps the quintessential 'Marilyn' film. Stylishly directed by Howard Hawks, the musical highlights include "Bye Bye Baby" and "When Love Goes Wrong", plus Jane Russell's jaw-dropping "Is There Anyone Here for Love?" and Marilyn's signature number, "Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend".
