‘Blondes’ in Boston

The new, digitally-restored print of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes will be screened at Arts Emerson in Boston on May 4-6, as part of their ‘Gotta Dance: The American Film Musical 1929-1953.’

“Never again in her career will Monroe look so sexually perfect, no never. Her physical coordination is never more vigorous and athletically quick; she dances with all the grace she is ever going to need, all the grace and all the pizzazz — she is a musical comedy star with panache! … She must be the first embodiment of Camp, for Gentlemen Prefer Blondes is a perfect film in the way early Connery-James Bond films were perfect…The first film which enables us to speak of her as a great comedian.” – Norman Mailer
