Critic Reviews for How to Marry a Millionaire
The stars save this 1953 entry, through fruitful collision if not smooth collaboration.
A real standout among the other players is William Powell as the elderly Texas rancher who woos, wins and then gives up Bacall.
[A] feeble little comedy, which hardly needed a wide screen and which just about gets by on star power.
The substance is still insufficient for the vast spread of screen which CinemaScope throws across the front of the theatre, and the impression it leaves is that of nonsense from a few people in a great big hall.
In How to Marry a Millionaire, directed by John Negulesco, there is the triple delight of Marilyn Monroe, Betty Grable and Lauren Bacall in one movie -- and one apartment.
Audience Reviews for How to Marry a Millionaire
Monroe and Bacall are charming and charismatic as ever, but in an only occasionally amusing (yet outdated and rarely really funny) story about three women trying to catch a rich man to marry - a plot that, let's be honest, may not be everyone's idea of a good, fun comedy.
Silly and unimaginative, but with a good cast, it's not a great movie but worth watching if you like the cast.
I love old films, and this is no exception. Marilyn is pouty and ignorant as ever, Lauren Bacall sophistacted yet vulnerable, and Betty Grable just plain dim. It all works out for a great comedy.
