About the Movie

Celebrate 75 Years of Glamour from 20th Century Fox! Two glamorous showgirls have everything a girl could want – except engagement rings! In a quest for true love, Lorelei (Marilyn Monroe) and her gold digger pal Dorothy (Jane Russell) set sail on a luxury-liner for France. While on board, the pair hit rocky waters when a manipulative detective (Elliot Reid), an over-aged millionaire (Charles Coburn), and the entire men's Olympic Gymnastics team try to put an anchor in their marriage-minded mischief. It's a wild and joyous funny ride across the Atlantic as Lorelei and Dorothy plan and plot a way to land their men!

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: There is that about Miss Russell and also about Miss Monroe that keeps you looking at them even when they have little or nothing to do. Call it inherent magnetism. Call it luxurious coquetry. Call it whatever you fancy. – Bosley Crowther, New York Times, Mar 16, 2016

Fresh: A strong play to the sophisticated dialog and situations is given by Howard Hawks' direction and he maintains the racy air that brings the musical off excellently at a pace that helps cloak the fact that it's rather lightweight, but sexy, stuff. – William Brogdon, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: There's more warmth in [Russell's] fondly bemused looks at Monroe, whose friendship is a front-row ticket to the best show in town. – Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice, Aug 3, 2010

Fresh: Howard Hawks adds sly sexual insinuation to the blatantly sexual antics of Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell in this scintillating 1953 adaptation of the stage musical based on Anita Loos's novel. – Richard Brody, New Yorker, Jan 25, 2016
