Girlie Movie Time
I would be lying if I said I enjoy most girlie movies or TV. That said there are certain girlie movies that I love and somewhere on that list is "How to marry a millionaire." It is an oldie, but goodie.
It stars Marlyn Monroe, Betty Grable and the completely awesome Loren Becall. Loren Becall is without a doubt my very favorite actress from that era. She always plays the smart, sassy, sophisticated and irresistibly beautiful woman. I have a feeling that is not far from the real Loren Becall.
OK, enough of my gushing about Loren and back to the movie --
It is a comedy in which 3 women (all beautiful models) become tired of the types of men they have been attracting and decide to get to work on attracting and marrying millionaires. The 3 rent an expensive apartment, which they can only afford because they are all chipping in and they begin their search for the millionaires. I don't want to add any spoilers for those who haven't seen it. It is enough to say it is a bit silly at times, but still completely charming and totally girlie.
