Marilyn Monroe co-stars with Lauren Bacall and Betty Grable in this sweet and sexy tale of three gorgeous Manhattan models who concoct a wild scheme to marry rich men. But their plans go uproariously awry when two of them fall for guys who appear to be flat broke. Marilyn delivers an unforgettable performance as Pola, a hilariously nearsighted beauty who refuses to wear her unattractive glasses.

Classic Hollywood legends sparkle; premise doesn't hold up.

What Parents Need to Know

The only objectionable content in How to Marry a Millionaire is the premise, which is that the best thing a woman can do with her life is marry into money. It's a good opportunity to start a discussion about when in the past that was true (if ever), how things have changed, and whether more change is still needed. It's also a good opportunity to talk about how smoking in movies has changed over the years, what kind of influence it may have had on audiences, and how and why attitudes about smoking have changed. Otherwise, two or three brief kisses are shown, and there's a fair amount of social drinking.
