MOVIE SYNOPSIS - These glamorous showgirls have everything a girl could want - except engagement rings! In a quest for true love, Lorelei (Marilyn Monroe) and her gold-digger pal Dorothy (Jane Russell), set sail on a luxury-liner bound for France. But the pair hits rocky waters when an over-aged, over-sexed millionaire (Charles Coburn), a manipulative detective and the entire men's Olympic swimming team try to put an anchor in their marriage-minded mischief. It's a wild and riotously funny ride across the Atlantic as our bathing beauties plan and plot a way to land their men.
