Director: Howard Hawks
Just a heads-up: this movie is streaming for free on YouTube right now. If you've never seen it, give it a whirl.
I'm going to keep this short because maybe 2/3rds of the way through this viewing, I realized this would be a fine movie to podcast sometime. So, regular podcast contributors, hit me up if you want in.
It's funny - for a movie that's very, very famous, I don't see the actual story or characters of the movie discussed all that much, let alone the themes, subversions, etc... Maybe I just hang in the wrong circles. They focus on Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend, which, fair enough... Monroe redefined sexiness for the Western world in a single musical number. But the whole movie is solid, smart and @#$%ing funny.
Anyway, if you happen to think Jane Russell and Marilyn Monroe are a generally good idea (and I do), this may be the movie for you.
