GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES (1953) Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell


Vintage original 10 x 8” (25 x 20 cm.) black and white single weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, USA. Jane Russell, Marilyn Monroe, Charles Coburn, Tommy Noonan, Elliott Reid, dir: Howard Hawks; 20th Century Fox. Wonderfully entertaining tale of two show girls who travel to Paris and are followed by a private eye to make sure they behave, as they are tempted by generous men aboard ship and upon arrival
From the popular Broadway show based on Anita Loos’ story, the character of Lorelei Lee and the song “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend” had already been immortalized by the original, Carol Channing. But here, Marilyn Monroe also made it her own and the character and song also became identified with her. In still photo 882-106, the girls display a posterior dance move in the musical number A LITTLE GIRL FROM LITTLE ROCK. Very minor handling. ABOUT FINE.
