Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (2011 Season)

Wed, Aug 24, 2011 @ 7:30 PM, Campbell Hall

Anita Loos’s smash-hit musical comedy found its quintessential interpretation in this movie adaptation featuring Jane Russell and the positively astounding Marilyn Monroe as Lorelei Lee. In witty, campy sequences such as “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend” Monroe really shines – but credit must be given to director Howard Hawks. (1953, 91 minutes)

Alternate screening:
Fri, August 26 / 8:30 PM / outside at the Santa Barbara County Courthouse Sunken Garden
