Howard Hawks, director of The Big Sleep, His Girl Friday, Rio Bravo, Bringing up Baby, Monkey Business, Scarface (1932), Hatari, and I was a Male War Bride, delivers Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. The storyline for this picture was fairly week and seemed like an excuse to showcase Monroe. The cast delivers solid performances and includes Marilyn Monroe, Jane Russell, Charles Coburn, Elliott Reid, Tommy Noonan, and Marcel Dalio.

This is a movie I came across on Netflix and immediately added to my wish list. I was a little disappointed in this film as it wasn't that dramatic or heartfelt.
