This is one of my favorite Marilyn movies. I love the '50s and '60s. Love the style back then.

A fun, frivolous 1950s comedy about three women trying to land rich husbands. It's awfully silly, but the Technicolor pops on blu-ray and the performances from Monroe (playing a glasses-adverse nearsighted character), Bacall and the always dapper William Powell are good. Pin-up girl Betty Grable is less enjoyable. A better director like Billy Wilder or George Cukor could've given it more wit and fizz. Nunnally Johnson, who produced and wrote the screenplay, also wrote "The Grapes of Wrath." That would be not be a very good double feature. The extras on this disc are minimal.

I found this film to be quite enjoyable, especially Marilyn's turn as a woman who is ashamed to wear her glasses.

This contrived and completely unfunny 1950s comedy about 3 NYC fashion models conniving and gold-digging was one of the worst Chick Flicks that I've seen in a long time._____ Put plain and simple, this film's storyline stank. Being neither cute nor coy, it would have been bad enough having to endure one calculating minx plotting to snag herself a millionaire husband, but this nonsense multiplied by 3 was in such bad taste that it made the film almost unbearable to sit through._____ With one limp joke and stupid situation after another, this film was so desperate to generate some much-needed laughs (to mask the story's god-awful treachery) that it had Marilyn Monroe's near-sighted character (who refused to wear her glasses in public) walk into walls. This tired bit of slapstick comedy quickly wore out its novelty after being used just once too often._____ Lauren Bacall's character, as the castrating witch behind the whole "let's marry millionaires" scheme, was absolutely hideous.

Schatze Page: You wanna catch a mouse, you set a mouse trap. All right so we set a bear trap. Now all we gotta do, is one of us has got to catch a bear.
Loco Dempsey: You mean marry him?
Schatze Page: If you don't marry him, you haven't caught him, he's caught you.
