Gentlemen may prefer blondes, but this blonde bombshell prefers diamonds, and lots of them! Glamorous showgirl Marilyn Monroe sets sail for France, intent on marrying a rich, yet boring, beau. But anything can—and does—happen with the beautiful and fun-loving Jane Russell acting as chaperone. From celebrated director Howard Hawks, this musical comedy classic features Marilyn's signature rendition of the hit tune "Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend." Based on a novel by Anita Loos.
