They're Just Two Little Girls from Little Rock
While Marilyn Monroe's performance of Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend is perhaps the better-known musical moment in the film - let me assure you that Jane Russell's number with 25+ bare-chested, hunkarific gymnasts is equally memorable.
This film is loosely based on the 1925 novel, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes: The Illuminating Diary of a Professional Lady, and features several songs from the 1949 Broadway musical, starring Carol Channing.
Monroe is absolutely beautiful and hilarious as the charmingly capitalistic Lorelei Lee.
