Gentlemen Prefer Blondes 1953

It was an overnight bestseller and was translated into fourteen languages, even serialized into Chinese. Her stage adaptation opened on Broadway in 1926 and later toured successfully. In 1949, a hit musical of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes opened on Broadway, which she and Joseph Fields wrote the book for. A silent movie of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes was made in 1928 starring Ruth Taylor and Alice White, which Loos also wrote the subtitles for, and a sound version of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes was made in 1953 starring Jane Russell and Marilyn Monroe, which was adapted by Charles Lederer and directed by Howard Hawks.
