Three New York models, Shatze, Pola and Loco set up in an exclusive apartment with a plan....tired of cheap men and a lack of money, they intend to use all their talents to trap and marry three millionaires. The trouble is that it's not so easy to tell the rich men from the hucksters - and even when they can, is the money really worth it?Written by

In one scene, the three women are talking to each other about who they would like to marry. Pola (Marilyn Monroe) says she would like to marry "Mr. Cadillac" and Schatze (Lauren Bacall) replies, "No such person, I checked." However, there WAS a Mr. Cadillac. He was the French governor of Canada and founded the city of Detroit. In 1710 he was named the Governor of Louisiana. The Cadillac automobile was named after him and his surname lives on in the form of his descendants. See more »
The fur wrap that Pola picks up from the bed at the wedding party and drops on the floor is back on to the bed while she and Schatzie are talking. See more »

20th Century Fox's 2nd 'CINEMASCOPE' film
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'.
