The Canon #80: GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES v SOME LIKE IT HOT

Marilyn versus Marilyn!

The latest episode of The Canon pits two iconic Marilyn Monroe movies against each other. They're both titanic pictures, helmed by giants in the industry and illuminated by 1000 watt starpower... but only one will make it into The Canon. 

Will it be Howard Hawks' Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, a boat-bound romp that gave us Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend? Or will it be Billy Wilder's cross-dressing classic Some Like It Hot, which gave us the amazing final line "Nobody's perfect"? You get to choose!

Next week: we are doing a live show with comedian Jonah Ray Rodrigues, and the subject is Tim Burton's Ed Wood. You can still buy tickets to the live show, taping tomorrow night at 8:30pm at UCB Sunset. Click here for that. Just five bucks!
