Movie Cover - 3 Godfathers

3 Godfathers is a 1948 American Western film directed by John Ford and filmed (although not set) primarily in Death Valley, California. The screenplay, written by Frank S. Nugent and Laurence Stallings, is based on the novelette of the same name written by Peter B. Kyne. Ford had already adapted the film once before in 1919 as Marked Men. The original silent adaptation by Ford is thought to be lost today. The story is something of a retelling of the story of The Three Wise Men in an American Western context.[2] Ford decided to remake the story in Technicolor and dedicate the film to the memory of long-time friend Harry Carey, who starred in the 1919 film Marked Men. Carey's son, Harry Carey, Jr., plays one of the title roles in this 1948 film.

Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953 film)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Gentlemen Prefer Blondes is a 1953 American musical comedy film based on the 1949 stage musical of the same name. It was directed by Howard Hawks and stars Jane Russell and Marilyn Monroe, with Charles CoburnElliott ReidTommy NoonanGeorge WinslowTaylor Holmes and Norma Varden in supporting roles.

The film is filled with comedic gags and musical numbers, choreographed by Jack Cole, while the music was written by Hoagy CarmichaelHarold AdamsonJule Styne and Leo Robin. The songs by Styne and Robin are from the Broadway show, while the songs by Carmichael and Adamson were written especially for the film. Despite the film's title, Monroe was paid her usual contract salary of $500 a week, while Russell, then the better known actress, earned $200,000.

While Russell's down-to-earth, sharp wit has been observed by most critics, it was Monroe's turn as the gold-digging Lorelei Lee for which the film is often remembered.[4] Monroe's rendition of the song "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" and her pink dress are considered iconic, and the performance has inspired homages by BeyonceMadonnaGeri HalliwellKylie MinogueNicole KidmanAnna Nicole SmithChristina Aguilera and James Franco.
