Nunnally Johnson's Broadway comedy was brought to the big screen by director Jean Negulesco, built around a trio of female stars, Lauren Bacall, Marilyn Monroe, and Betty Grable. They play friends who come up with a plan to find and marry rich men. They rent a lavish penthouse and use it as their launching pad to lure men with money in the bank. But each eventually finds that love is more important that material possessions, though it takes a while. One running joke has Monroe so insecure about her looks that she refuses to wear glasses, though this means she bumps into furniture and walls. The other has Bacall rejecting suitor Cameron Mitchell because he doesn't wear a tie, assuming this means he's low-class when, in fact, he's the Donald Trump of 1954. Pre-feminist comedy captures the mindset of an era in which women's identities were based on the men they married. It has its moments, but much of the humor seems dated, though its take on sexual politics is occasionally acute. --Marshall Fine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Great movie! The Blu-ray version is great. Marilyn was fabulous in this movie. It's great seeing Bacall take to comedy so well.Published 17 months ago by Cattieluver
I first say the movie years ago and the ladies in this movie are true stars!
If you like classic movies with real leading ladies, this is a great pick
This has been one of my favourite movies. All wonderful actresses playing the three leading ladies. Good actors as well. I enjoy the time frame of this movie too.Published on Oct. 23 2013 by kim locken

This is a magnificent movie. It is artful, filled with humor and it's just good clean fun. It is an excellent choice for parents who have girls--like mine--who idealize Marylin... Read morePublished on Dec 21 2003 by Cat in the Hat
