Flaming Classics: Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

20th Century Fox Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell in GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES

Flaming Classics: Summer Camp continues as Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell cruise for men and diamonds aboard a ship to Paris. Surrounded by doting admirers, private detectives, and a bevy of beautiful bodybuilders, the women reflect on the eternal question: What is love? A classic musical by Howard Hawks, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes is truly a tale about the power of female friendship. The iconic film inspired a multitude of artists, ranging from Madonna to Moulin Rouge's Baz Luhrmann with its gorgeous musical numbers. Lorelei Lee (Marilyn Monroe) is a beautiful showgirl engaged to be married to the wealthy Gus Esmond (Tommy Noonan), much to the disapproval of Gus' rich father, Esmond Sr., who thinks that Lorelei is just after his money. When Lorelei goes on a cruise accompanied only by her best friend, Dorothy Shaw (Jane Russell), Esmond Sr. hires Ernie Malone (Elliott Reid), a private detective, to follow her and report any questionable behavior that would disqualify her from the marriage. The screening, presented on 35mm, will be followed by a special live performance by Miss Toto. Introduction by Miami Classic Movie Club’s Stefanie Del Papa.
