Thoughts on How To Marry a Millionaire

-Lauren Bacall, Marilyn Monroe, and Betty Grable star as three women who split rent on a high-rise apartment in hopes of catching some rich men. It's in the title, people.

-I think this was the inception of Marilyn Monroe's ditsy blonde type. Except here, her gimmick is that she's basically blind, but refuses to put her glasses on in public, rationalized with a Dorothy Parker quote.

-Lauren Bacall is, as always, awesome.

-Betty Grable is somewhere between Monroe and Bacall.

-What's with old movies and 'How do you like that?'

-Pleasant, cute, entertaining old romantic comedy. You could do worse.

-Yay, in-jokes-about-real-life-husbands!
