While Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, diamonds are definitely Marilyn’s best friend

The 1953 comedy stars Jane Russell and Marilyn Monroe.

Two showgirls who are on their way to France by boat, they are both keen on the opposite sex, or to put it mildly, man-mad.

Jane Russell goes for looks while Marilyn Monroe is attracted by wealth and in particular diamonds.

She performs ‘Diamonds are a girl’s best friend’ in the movie, which has become an iconic film song.
