Gentlemen Prefer Blondes is showing at the Coral Gables Art Cinema in Miami next Thursday, June 1st, at 8 pm.

“Gentlemen Prefer Blondes is a delightful exception to decades of male-dominated media, showing two women who’ve known each other from childhood, escaped rural Arkansas together, and are now determined to find love and riches, not necessarily in that order. They accept each other as they are — though they’re certainly not above giving unsolicited advice — and never compete in romance (though that may be because Russell puts money a little lower on her list than Monroe). Their mutual support is the emotional core of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes; the movie all but grinds to a halt in one of the final scenes so Jane Russell can underline to love interest Elliot Reid that she would never, ever betray her best friend.” – Sam Scott, The Solute
