Under Howard Hawks’ direction Marilyn was a sexual delight striking, in one of her numbers, a ‘Gilda’ pose
Marilyn’s “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” was one of the classic musicals of the 1950’s… She comes into it looking like a winner, and leaves as one The picture has been set fully by the tone of her personality Her personality infuses every corner of the film as if she has even picked the scenery to work for her
The movie rises above its pretext, its story, its existence as a musical, even its music, and becomes at its best a magic work, yet it is a light-hearted satire of the old adage that when a woman goes bad, men go right after her
The film crowned Monroe in her position as the nation’s new ‘Love Goddess’ with the promise of many sparkling hits to come, and Jane Russell’s career continued, with less fanfare, but very successfully for several more years
The story was simple: Dorothy (Jane Russell) and Lorelei (Marilyn Monroe) work together as entertainers and are also good friends Lorelei’s millionaire fiancé Gus Esmond (Tommy Noonan) sends the girls to France, but his father (Taylor Holmes) hires a private detective, Malone (Elliott Reid) on the same boat to spy on her during the trip When the three meet, Dorothy falls for Malone, much to the chagrin of Lorelei, who cannot understand Dorothy’s indifference to men with money
On board, the girls get into trouble when they meet an old playboy Francis Beckman (Charles Coburn), a diamond merchant
A Diamond , No Matter How You Look At It
Imperishible like a diamond, sharp, stunning, priceless. The rough and tough Howard Hawks knew how to establish contact with his feminine side and when he did, wonderful things took place. “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” is a perfect example of that. One of the rarest. The women, as made abundantly clear by Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell, are divided in two very specific categories: blonds and brunettes. The blonds are always trying to find new places where to wear diamonds, the brunettes may fall for the wrong guy just because love gets in the way. The men are old rich predators, sneaky pros or children, no matter how old. The film goes by at an incredible pace and you can’t help but surrender to the charm, the beauty and the knowing innocence of this masterpiece.
