Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953)

Diamonds are to girls as this film is to the industry—Best Friends.

Regan Humphrey

When best friends Lorelei (Marilyn Monroe) and Dorothy (Jane Russell) embark on a cruise to France on the dime of Lorelei’s dim and doting fiancé, they intend to have a ball of a time. Unknown to them, this trip is an audition set up by Lorelei’s father-in-law-to-be, a man who mistrusts her intentions in striving to marry his millionaire son.
