Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953)
2 August 2012
Conclusion: One of the most iconic movie musicals of the 1950s, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes added the phrase "diamonds are a girl's best friends" to the cultural lexicon and set the template for Madonna, Kylie Minogue, and other materialistic chanteuses to come.
Excerpt: Gentlemen Prefer Blondes is based on the novel by Anita Loos, which was then turned into a Broadway musical by Joseph Fields. It's arguably one of the most entertaining Marilyn Monroe vehicles, giving her a chance to sing and act and also be at the centre of most male attentions.
