Despite the fact that three of Hollywood's most popular actresses were billed together on the same screen, they got along surprisingly well on the set. In fact, when a photo shoot was getting ready to happen, Betty Grable noticed that Marilyn Monroe's toenails needed painting. So, wanting Monroe to look her best, Grable took some of her own polish and painted Monroe's toenails herself. See more »

Next thing you got to remember is the gentlemen you meet on the cold cuts may not be as attractive as the one you meet in the mink department at Bergdorf's.
But he was cute, don't you think?
Sure he was. But then I never met one of those gas pump jockey that wasn't.
Is that what he is?
You bet your life he is. I know those guys. I married one once.

You may wonder "Why does Marilyn Monroe,Betty Grable & Lauren Bacall keep spreading across a lounge in so many scenes?" the answer is not vain- pleasure-seeking body language but CINEMASCOPE lens requirements.I watched this film on a old released Video Tape & delighted that it was a full-screen fixed camera issue & not a letterbox reduction release.I delighted in NOT seeing the person speaking & only the stilted recipient's reactions. You have to observe all the action as there are no camera angles or close ups.This was too 'startling' to a cinemascope theatre audience. What other film can boast a full orchestra opening with every member of that orchestra in full view of the cinema audience:-like in a live concert. The first Cinemascope film was 'The Robe' followed by 'How To Marry A Millionaire'. As the other reviewers has said;A 'feel-good' film with nostalgic 'old-time'high society values. Did anyone spot the 'moral' of the tale?.'Better to love for love's sake than for money'.
