Gentlemen Prefer Blondes - Trailer

Posted on: July 1, 2005 | Views: 299 | Comment

Terrific original trailer for the classic musical with 50s screen sirens Marilyn Monroe and Rosalind Russell in made-to-order roles. A pair of gold-digging showgirls from the canebrake--a sassy, street-smart brunette and a sexy, naive blonde--pursue potential rich husbands on an ocean cruise. This glossy, big-budget Howard Hawks adaptation of the Broadway hit was based on a story by Anita Loos. Among the memorable songs is the fabulous "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend," with Monroe in a pink sheath dress and gloves to match: one of the great musical numbers of all time.
