Gentlemen Prefer Blondes
Dir. Howard Hawks (1953). Genre-master Howard Hawkss purposefully vulgar, hyper-modern Hollywood musical features Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell as a pair of cartoon gold diggers at sea. The stars have an uncanny rapport; its also the first time that the Blonde plays Marilyn Monroe.
