Directed by Howard Hawks | 1953

With Jane Russell, Marilyn Monroe, Charles Coburn

"You won't find a more elegant take on '50s va-va-voom vulgarity or a more joyous paean to the cheesecake self-empowerment of two little girls from Little Rock."
—Time Out New York

Dorothy (Russell) is sailing to Europe with her best friend Lorelei (Monroe), a showgirl whose fiancée promises her a line of credit in Paris—so long as she stays faithful en route. Though Monroe is a gold-digger and Russell yearns for a starving artist, the real spark in the movie is its “intense Sapphic appeal” (Melissa Anderson, Artforum). Maybe diamonds are a girl’s best friend; maybe a girl’s best friend is her lover. Either way, men count for little when Russell and Monroe share the screen.
