Gentlemen prefer blondes by Howard Hawks( Visual )

35 editions published between 1953 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 1,342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

A revived musical hit of Rodgers and Hammerstein in 1958.

This musical is centering the action on the Golden Pearl Theater

"As described in the World Telegram, "The new play recounts only the twelve months' period encompassed by the signing of a lease on a Greenwich Village basement apartment and the evacuation thereof, and a few of the amazing adventures that befell the two girls - an engaging, heart-warming play with exceptionally high comedy content. Eileen is the pretty onethe one who has stage aspirations and the homey personality that innocently invites passes from every man from 14 to 85 who has eyes in his head. Ruth is the plainer one, and her bent is for literature. Well, the two girls land in the toils of Landlord Appopolous and the most distracting apartment you ever saw. Through their basement grating the swirling life of the village, its drunks and gamins, its hucksters and hustlers and occasionally its cops, seep, flow and sometimes come in an unwelcome deluge. The kitchenette is aptly described as a 'nauseating nook.' Blasting in the new subway cavern beneath rocks the building. Finally six officers of the Brazilian navy follow Ruth home, under certain mistaken impressions, and create something only short of an international incident."--Publisher's description
