It's my second favorite, after The Misfits. *Lorelei* is my favorite of her comic characters, along

with Elsie in Prince and the Showgirl.

tonight, too! George Winslow is so cute as Henry Spofford III.

 

It's actually spelled "muchas gracias" - but I'm equally glad about them showing *Gentlemen Prefer Blondes* B-)

It's also one of my top favourites. Haven't seen *The Misfits* in a long time but hope to watch it again soon. Oh, and great photos!!!! B-)

i love the part of Prince and the Showgirl when she sits on that couch and he gives her that drink and she didnt ask for it, but took it anyway and then he starts flirting with her telling her how wonderful the parts on her face are andf then he says, "your chin." she replies, "oh you skipped my nose, b/c you found the bump on the end." i love that part of the movie! it makes me laugh everytime!

 

i found Larry Olivier interesting in this movie, b/c for me, it wasnt his usual character that i love to see, and it was so different for me to see him with that eye piece and the hair and the voice, it was all so.....different! heehee! but i loved him anyway in it, b/c i just love larry!

*WOW!! ...I'm so excited to finally see a different Marilyn Monroe on TCM, besides the usual "_The Misfits_" & "_Some Like It Hot_"!!!*

 

*Thursday, December 04th, 2008 @ 05:00pm (MT) Arizona Time!*

 

*_Gentlemen Prefer Blondes_ (1953)*

 

*Two singers work their way to Paris, enjoying the company of eligible men they meet along the way.*

 

*Stars: Jane Russell, Marilyn Monroe, Charles Coburn, Elliott Reid, Tommy Noonan, Taylor Holmes, and Norma Varden.*

 

*Directed by: Howard Hawks.*

 

*Dorothy Shaw:*

You know I think you're the only girl in the world who can stand on a stage with a spotlight in her eye and still see a diamond inside a man's pocket.

*_Gentlemen Prefer Blondes_, by Anita Loos, Popular Library, 1925.*

 

 

*Trivia for: _Gentlemen Prefer Blondes_ (1953)*

 

*Originally bought by Fox as a vehicle for Betty Grable. After the success of Niagara (1953) (which featured Marilyn Monroe), however, the studio believed they had a more potent and far less expensive sex symbol than Grable (who was earning around $150,000 per picture vs. Monroe's $18,000).*

 

*Monroe wears a gold lame evening dress previously worn by Ginger Rogers in _Dreamboat_ (1952).*

 

*The "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend" number was later re-shot in Cinemascope, to be used as part of a Cinemascope demonstration held on the Fox lot in March of 1953. Producer Darryl F. Zanuck told "Daily Variety" that it only took 3-1/2 hours to shoot the number in Cinemascope versus four days for the original film version. The film-going public finally saw the CinemaScope version ten years later when it closed Fox's documentary tribute to MM, "Marilyn".*

 

Thanks,

Movie database!

Yes, those were better days. Here's one taken after they were divorced but they do

say Marilyn and Joe were planning to remarry:

I have so many favorite parts...one is where Marilyn tells him "you made a pass at me and

I turned you down. That's all. We can still be friendly!" The look on her face is so adorable.

Just the way she is so oblivious to his consternation while he's slowly finding himself falling

for her in spite of himself is too cute. I also like the part where he's on the phone ignoring

her while she's serving herself from the food and talking to herself. It's hilarious. She was

such a great comedienne.

I love that Olivier was so willing to play the straight man to Marilyn---he had to know that

she was going to be the main focus of the movie, but I guess since he was doing both roles

(star and director) he had enough on his hands. He's very funny as the Regent and that young

man who plays his son was terrific! I just think it's adorable the way Elsie turned that whole

household upside down.

 

Another funny scene is with the Regent's mother-in-law (Sybil Thorndike) when she thinks

Marilyn speaks and understands French.

 

"One can never wear enough mascara my dear." lol!

Now I really have to watch that again. ;)

i wasnt at all surprised that he agreed to do a movie like this with Marylin, i just thought it was a bit interesting, b/c when i was littler, i was so used to him being my Mr. Darcy! heehee! i thought his son in the movie was too cute for words trying to be all proper around Elsie all the time.. heehee! he just made me smile everytimehe came on screen. Elsie had this way of talking to everyone she met, that just got to all of them, and she did it all without trying.

 

loverly pictures dahlink!

It was a bit weird to see him younger and starring opposite MM, when I first watched it, because I believe back then I'd only seen Olivier in *A Little Romance* and *Clash of the Titans*.

He was a proper little gentleman. I'd love to have a boy like that, except I'd hope he wasn't

planning to overthrow my "government"! :D

 

Thank you for that picture, I hadn't seen that one. I wanted to add that I think the

*Prince and the Showgirl* is Marilyn at her most beautiful. I like the more natural

coloring of her hair and the way Jack Cardiff lit her is so incandescent. All those warm

ambers and soft creamy colors just set her beauty off brilliantly.

your welcome! i liked it a lot when i found it too! i must say i thoroughly agree with you about MM's look in this movie. i think i like her best in this movie too, without the EXTREMELY bright red lipstick and the blind a person platinum blonde hair. i liked the creamy blending of colors they did with her clothes, her hair, and her make-up. it makes a lot of difference. its almost like a whole different Marilyn!

 

i loved this dress!!
