Life Lessons From Gentlemen Prefer Blonde

/// If you haven't yet, please go over to Facebook and 'Like' the Blame Mame Facebook page! \\\

My favorite movie of all time is the 1953 film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes starring Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell. The technicolor musical follows the gold digging adventures of Lorelei Lee and her chaperone Dorothy Shaw while they cross the Atlantic on their way to Paris. The film has a lot to offer the viewer in the form of luscious musical numbers, gorgeous Travilla gowns, and you probably didn't realize it, but it also offers many lessons you can put to good use in your own life. So just what can you learn from these two buxom beauties? You've come to the right place, keep reading!

01. Nobody chaperones the chaperone (DS)

02. It's just as easy to fall in love with a rich man as a poor man

03. A man with "and valet" after his name is definitely worth while

04. Nine o'clock is when life begins

05. A kiss on the hand might feel very good, but a diamond tiara lasts forever (LL)

06. Women should never admit their feet hurt (LL)

07. Certain hats are not be worn if you're in business

08. When love goes wrong, nothing goes right (LL& DS)

09. Diamonds are a girl's best friend!

10. On your wedding day, it's alright to say yes


  1. This is one of my favourite movies too! Lesson #1 is the best ;)

  2. ...I learned a lesson watching this one... Jane Russell is tha BOMB!!! As much as MM tore up the screen, Jane honestly held her own, and might have even been a bit 'more'...well, whatever ya wanna call it... :-P Jane did a GREAT job in this one!

    one of my top 3 MM movies, of course, Seven-yr itch and Some like it hot are right there as well...

    Keep up the great work, Craig!!!
