Marilyn Monroe stars as showgirl Lorelei Lee in Howard Hawks's delightfully entertaining 1950s musical.

A gorgeous Technicolor Hollywood glamour fest with classic comedy scenes and bravura musical numbers thrown in. Adapted by the legendary director Howard Hawks from the Loos / Fields stage play, this is one of Marilyn Monroe’s most charismatic roles as the gold-digging showgirl Lorelei who drags her friend (the equally mesmerising Jane Russell) into one hilarious scrape after another.

Adrian Wootton OBE, CEO of Film London, introduces the film.
