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

"A genteel ladies' art institute is definitely no place for a free thinker. So the school boots independent-minded Dinah Sheldon back to Baltimore. There, the scandalized townsfolk don't know which is more shocking, that Dinah is a suffragist or that she painted her beau in - gasp! - nothing but a loincloth and a manly expression. Thank goodness there's one person Dinah can depend on: her understanding father, Andrew, an Episcopalian minister. But Andrew is up for promotion to bishop, and an unconventional daughter is scarely résumé material, especially when Dinah's scuffle with ruffians lands her in jail." -- Container
