    These glamorous showgirls have everything a girl could want - except engagement rings! In a quest for love, Lorelei (Marilyn Monroe) and her pal Dorothy (Jane Russell) set sail on a luxury-liner bound for France.  

    But the pair hits rocky waters when a manipulative detective, an over-aged, over-sexed millionaire and the entire men's Olympic team try to put an anchor in their marriage-minded mischief.  It's a wild ride across the Atlantic as our bathing beauties plan and plot a way to land their men.

My opinion: This movie is Marilyn Monroe.  I love this film.  Marilyn's performance of "Diamonds are a girl's best friend" is a must see.  This is a delightful comedy with Marilyn singing and dancing throughout.  I would suggest this as your first Marilyn movie. She looks absolutely breathtaking in it and she is a comedic genius.


Review:  Los Angeles Citizen News
"As Lorelei Lee, Marilyn looks as delectable as a ripe peach.  She also surprises with a remarkably stylish voice piping 'Diamonds are a girl's best friend' in a lavish production number."
