Review

Our Score
This wickedly witty classic unites Marilyn Monroe, Betty Grable and Lauren Bacall as three young women who, weary of meeting the same old cheap bachelors, rent a luxurious Manhattan apartment together to impress affluent men (including Alexander D'Arcy and Cameron Mitchell). The leading trio are fantastic, while panoramic shots of New York benefit from the then-new CinemaScope widescreen format (the IMAX of its day), and the gorgeous costume design was rightly nominated for an Academy Award.

Summary

Three women rent a luxurious New York apartment as part of a scheme to get their claws into wealthy husbands - but their plans become unstuck when all three start to fall for men with good hearts and empty pockets. Comedy, starring Betty Grable, Marilyn Monroe, Lauren Bacall, William Powell, Cameron Mitchell, David Wayne, Rory Calhoun and Fred Clark.
