Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Special Screening

Christmas films showing in London

Tuesday 11 December

Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

Not the name of a new grunge-flavoured indie band, rather Howard Hawks’s timeless 1953 musical comedy starring Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell, both at the peak of their powers. Russell was famously the bigger name at the time of casting, but soon discovered Monroe’s far-reaching appeal could outweigh anybody. Still, the pair sizzle together on screen – the former at the gold-digging showgirl Lorelei, the latter as her lively and loyal friend Dorothy – as they attempt to evade pursuers of various kinds. This special screening will be introduced by film and music fanatic Adrian Wootton OBE (who’s also CEO of Film London).
