A plain, middle-aged married man, Richard Sherman sends his wife Helen and his young son Ricky off to vacation at the seashore in Maine during a sultry summer in New York City. They escape but he must remain behind in the heat, to make money. He sees them off at the train station, promising to eat properly, and neither smoke nor drink. He will be sensible, not play around as soon as his wife leaves like so many other men. That is until he meets his new upstairs neighbor--subletting for the summer--a stunning, curvaceous, wide-eyed blonde with a giggly voice. Sherman is already prone to Walter-Mittyish fantasies, and in a flash his lively imagination goes into full gear as he battles the seven-year itch

Three New York models, Schatze, Pola, and Loco sublet a luxury penthouse apartment with a plan: they are tired of cheap men and a lack of money, so they'll use all their talents to trap and marry millionaires. The trouble is that it's not so easy to tell the rich men from the hucksters. Recent divorcee Schatze meets real-estate mogul Tom, but thinks he looks like a gas station attendant. Loco gets involved with a married man, but falls for forest ranger Eben. Blind as a bat Pola refuses to wear her glasses, and thus winds up on the wrong plane, but meets Freddie--who actually owns the penthouse they're renting! So which is better: to marry for love or money?
Gentlemen prefer blondes by Howard Hawks ( Visual )

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
