Synopsis

DIRECTOR: Howard Hawks

WITH: Marilyn Monroe, Jane Russell, Charles Coburn

Lorelei Lee and Dorothy Shaw are two halves of a dynamic song-and-dance duo. They are also best friends despite their contrasting attitudes to men and money. But is Lorelei really just a ‘blonde man-trap’ and ‘mercenary nitwit’ or is her gold-digging approach sheer common sense? Shot in glorious Technicolor, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes abounds in fabulous fashion, sizzling one-liners and sensational musical numbers (‘Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend’). A five-carat comedy classic which never loses its sparkle.

 

This screening will be introduced by Harriet Kelsall, one of the most respected bespoke designers and business trailblazers working in the UK jewellery industry today. Harriet will introduce the audience to the beautiful jewellery in the film while referencing blood diamonds and ethics in the jewellery industry. 

 

In partnership with Harriet Kelsall Bespoke Jewellery.

All viewers are invited to join Harriet Kelsall Bespoke Jewellery in the Arts Picturehouse bar after the screening for a complimentary glass of English Sparkling Wine.
