Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

A Girl’s Best Friend: Female Friendship on Film
(NR) USA – 1 hr 31 min
1953 · d. Howard Hawks   Reviews
Starring Marilyn Monroe, Jane Russell, Charles Coburn, Elliot Reid

In Howard Hawks’s dazzling musical, Lorelei (Marilyn Monroe) and Dorothy (Jane Russell) are “just two little girls from Little Rock” who know what they want and are prepared to take it. Dorothy favors a bulging bicep; Lorelei, a plump pocketbook. Together, they embark on a transatlantic voyage in search of love and luxury, accompanied by a nerdy heir, a private eye, and the entire men’s Olympic team. Lorelei may croon that “diamonds are a girl’s best friend,” but this glamorous pair prizes their friendship above all.

Shown in conjunction with a Cinema Classics Seminar, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes will be introduced by Andrew Owen, Ph.D.
