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. Sixty years on, the film is still diamond- sharp, ha-ha funny and wink-wink sexy, bolstered by Marilyn Monroe's oh daddy act, a formidable mixture of innocence and lusty desire.
