Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell burst onto the screen with blazing colors in this big, brassy musical from
preeminent Hollywood wit Howard Hawks. The cooing flirt and the deadpan beauty are a pair of unapologetic gold-diggers and best friends strutting their natural wares on a cruise ship bound for Paris. The height of ironic fifties Technicolor spectacle, Hawks’s film is spangled with delightfully cheeky numbers, including “Two Little Girls from Little Rock”, “Ain’t There Anyone Here for Love?”, and Monroe’s iconic “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend.”
