I love old movies, and one of my favorites is "How to Marry a Millionaire" with Marilyn Monroe, Lauren Bacall and Betty Grable. Marilyn didn't make many bad movies, and this certainly isn't one of those. Without giving anything about the movie away (I'm hoping you'll want to see it for yourself), I've included a short synopsis (after the jump):
|Not wanting her date to see her glasses (she's blind without them), Monroe inspects her outfit in the ladies room|
Three New York models, Shatze, Pola and Loco set-up in an exclusive appartment with a plan: tired of cheap men and a lack of money they intend to use all their talents to trap and marry three millionaires. The trouble is that's it's not so easy to tell the rich men from the huxters and even when they can, is the money really worth it?
During the hunt for their millionaire husbands, the three models rent an upscale, furnished apartment, and live off of the sale of its furnishings. I have to assume that a good portion of that money goes to their incredible wardrobes!
|Outfits worn during the fashion show scene|
|More outfits from the fashion show scene (why can't we shop like this any more?)|
|Bacall's trying not to fall for the "gas pump jockey", but keeps answering his calls.|
|When her millionaire comes back, Bacall realizes she won't have to sell off any more furniture.|
|Impractical green/yellow skiing outfit, but oh-so-fabulous (best seen in color version of film).|
