93. Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (B)

It's the fiftieth anniversary of Marilyn Monroe's death, so that's obviously great timing to release Blu-rays of her films. This is the one that made her really famous, and, possibly excepting The Seven Year Itch, it contains the most iconic Marilyn imagery, the "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend" number. This is a Howard Hawks comedy, in colour this time, as opposed to all his 30s screwball comedies; it's certainly vibrant-looking. It has a lot of the same sensibility as his earlier comedies, and while I wouldn't call it a great film, it's consistently watchable.
