Part of The Complete Howard Hawks
Sunday, November 10, 2013, 4:30 p.m.

Dir.Howard Hawks. 1953, 91 mins. 35mm. With Marilyn Monroe, Jane Russell, Charles Coburn. Lorelei (Monroe) and Dorothy (Russell) are just "Two Little Girls from Little Rock," lounge singers on a transatlantic cruise, working their way to Paris, and enjoying the company of any eligible men they might meet along the way, though "Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend." Hawks’s satirical take on the musical genre was described by him as a film which was “purposely loud and bright and completely vulgar in costumes and everything.”
