Rating: 4/5 -- Classic Hollywood legends sparkle; premise doesn't hold up. Full Review

The substance is still insufficient for the vast spread of screen which CinemaScope throws across the front of the theatre, and the impression it leaves is that of nonsense from a few people in a great big hall. Full Review

A rather rambling but entertaining comedy, effectively filmed in the wide-screen CinemaScope process. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- a comedy about several models trying to land rich husbands, gets by on the talents of the stars,

Rating: 2/4 -- Despite some good work from Bacall and Monroe, this comedy ends up feeling flat. How many people want to watch a movie with a bunch of selfish women who want to find a rich husband so they don't ever have to work again? Yeah, I didn't think so. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

Marilyn Monroe delivers one of the finest comedic performances of her career in this outrageously funny film co-starring Betty Grable and Lauren Bacall. Three beautiful models plan to snag rich husbands by pooling their funds and renting a posh Manhattan penthouse in which to lure their victims. What follows is a series of near-marital mishaps where love prevails over money, proving that even gold diggers sometimes have hearts of gold!

Product Description:

Three screen goddesses--Betty Grable, Lauren Bacall, and Marilyn Monroe--star as golddigging models blessed with fabulous looks but limited brain power. The three blondes pool their resources and conspire to nab millionaire husbands, renting an expensive penthouse to lure in their likely prey. But with Rory Calhoun, Cameron Mitchell, David Wayne, Fred Clark, Alex D'Arcy, and William Powell playing the desired millionaires, the gals are pushed to the end of their wits as they try to decide whom to wed.

Basing his work on two successful stage plays, famed producer and screenwriter Nunnally Johnson's dialogue is fabulous, and scenic views of Manhatten exploit the CinemaScope widescreen aesthetic. Director Jean Negulesco keeps the antics of the remarkable ensemble cast hyped to an outrageous level, which combines perfectly with both the script and the music to create exceptionally entertaining and classic camp. This film is a must-see for fans of Marilyn Monroe, who again asserts the brilliance of her comedic timing as the extremely myopic Pola, a woman who refuses to wear glasses because she fears that they ruin her looks.

Production Notes:

  • HOW TO MARRY A MILLIONAIRE was the first feature film completed in CinemaScope, but THE ROBE beat it to theaters. Some screenings of MILLIONAIRE featured footage of Britain's coronation and the Disney cartoon "Toot, Whistle, Plunk and Boom," which were also designed to showcase the strengths of CinemaScope.
  • HOW TO MARRY A MILLIONAIRE is a remake of the 1932 film THE GREEKS HAD A WORD FOR THEM, aka THREE BROADWAY GIRLS. It starred Joan Blondell, Ina Claire, Madge Evans, David Manners, and Lowell Sherman, who also directed.
