Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell sizzle, sing and dance as a couple of gold diggers out to land rich husbands. This Technicolor film fable follows the exploits of two gorgeous women aboard a luxury ocean liner. One (Monroe) loves diamonds and the other (Russell) loves men.

On the ship with them are an elderly diamond mine owner (Charles Coburn), a team of handsome and muscular Olympic athletes, a fascinating but very young millionaire (George Winslow) and a nosy private eye. Packed with 40 minutes of production numbers, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes includes the legendary title song and "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend."
