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

Résumé: Thriller. Tout juste sorti de prison, Danny Ocean parcourt les États-Unis afin de former l'équipe avec laquelle il compte perpétrer un gros vol à Las Vegas. Ocean parvient ainsi à recruter dix complices, des techniciens experts dans les casses, mais aussi des joueurs familiers des tables de casinos. Dans une voûte souterraine, sont conservées les recettes du Bellagio, du Mirage et du MGM Grand, trois hôtels-casinos appartenant au magnat Terry Benedict. Le soir du vol, un important match de boxe a lieu, si bien que le butin pourrait s'élever à 162 millions de dollars. Mais Danny semble avoir une motivation secrète pour organiser ce coup: reconquérir son ex-femme Tess, l'actuelle compagne de Benedict, en mettant en échec ce dernier qui se croit invincible.
