Bachelorette showgirl singers Dorothy Shaw and Lorelei Lee are sailing to Paris, courtesy of Lorelei's millionaire boyfriend Gus Esmond, Jr. They're also being shadowed--thanks to Gus Sr.--by private detective Ernie Malone. Lorelei gets embroiled in a contretemps involving Sir Francis "Piggy" Beekman, outspoken Lady Beekman, and a tiara. Dorothy, meanwhile, becomes involved in a running flirtation with the detective. All's well that ends well, but everything plays second fiddle to the snazzy costumes and in-your-face attitudes sported by the showgirls. One of Howard Hawks' biggest commercial hits, this lush, garish, cynical, yet fun-filled fortune-hunter satire is based on a 1949 Broadway musical and has a wisp of a plot, serving merely to tie together the lavish musical numbers
