Can I use this as a study guide? Ok lets face facts women back in the day had the right idea, hook a rich fella and live like queens, but what happens when you find yourself falling for a Tom, Dick or Harry you get Jack....and Jack is lazy out of work or as Page would say another gas jockey she has dated. Page played by Lauren Bacall. Page had been scorn by men one too many times and cooked up a scheme to get her a man who would treat her right~!
I have to say I enjoyed all the little quirks of this movie from the renting an apartment for man hunting, to looking in only "good" parts of town for men. I loved Marilyn`s character Pola who was blind as a bat, but still tried to work a room with ought her glasses. I loved the quirky little saying she had to convince herself she needed to steer clear of glasses. "men aren`t attentive to girls who ware glasses" It was super cute and super Marilyn.
Finally who could forget Loco played by the quiet shinning star (also the biggest paid actor of her time In 1947 she was paid 300,000 a year!) Betty Grable. I loved her quirky nature in this movie that stole the spotlight with the married man who was trying to get her on the side, I also love the fact she ran off with the forest ranger (real man) in the end.
Also to put a final note to this review if you plan on surprising your wife that you secretly are a millionaire please PLEASE remember to put pillows on the floor!
I of course Recommend this movie
