Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

Get ready for toe-tapping tunes, glamourous looks and a healthy dose of camp in our Very Vintage Valentine afternoon screening of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.

Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell play glamorous showgirls who appear to have everything a girl could want – except engagement rings.

Lorelei Lee is engaged to be married to the wealthy Gus Esmond, much to the disapproval of Gus’ rich father. Lorelei and her gold digger pal Dorothy set sail on a luxury cruise liner bound for France. When they cross paths with a sneaky millionaire and a manipulative detective determined to prove that Lorelei is only after Gus’s money, the trip becomes anything but smooth sailing. Throw the US Men’s Olympic team into the mix and you have a classic movie musical with plenty of laughs. 

Featuring iconic musical numbers such as Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend, Bye Bye Baby and A Little Girl From Little Rock, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes has everything you need for a fabulously entertaining vintage afternoon out.

Part of Sunday’s A Very Vintage Valentine programme.
