Showgirls Lorelei Lee and Dorothy Shaw travel to Paris, pursued by a private detective hired by the suspicious father of Lorelei's fiancé, as well as a rich, enamored old man and many other doting admirers.
The titular river unites a farmer recently released from prison, his young son, and an ambitious saloon singer. In order to survive, each must be purged of anger, and each must learn to understand and care for the others.
When billionaire Jean-Marc Clement learns that he is to be satirized in an off-Broadway revue, he passes himself off as an actor playing him in order to get closer to the beautiful star of the show, Amanda Dell.
Lorelei and Dorothy are just "Two Little Girls from Little Rock", lounge singers on a transatlantic cruise, working their way to Paris, and enjoying the company of any eligible men they might meet along the way, even though "Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend." Based on the Broadway musical based on the novel.Written by

The diamond tiara that Marilyn Monroe is falsely accused of stealing in this film was later worn by Patricia Medina as the "evil queen" in Snow White and the Three Stooges. See more »
The "Two Little Girls From Little Rock" number ends with Dorothy near stage right and Lorelei near stage left. As the girls leave the stage, Dorothy is near stage left and Lorelei is near stage right. See more »
Marilyn Monroe is the most Iconic Sex Symbol of the Golden Age of the Movie Age, and ultimately of the 20th Century. In "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" (1953) one can easily see how this thought has been brought down upon young Marilyn. The film is not only enjoyable, but contains many great memorable songs, and of course, Marilyn Monroe.
Jane Russell on the other hand, brings a more mascular, homey feeling into the film, in which most audiences can easily relate too. This factor I also found very appealing.
The Choreography within the film is extraordinary, and most the piece are done as if it were clockwork!
