Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

 (1953)

Gentlemen Prefer Blondes Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell sizzle, sing and dance as a couple of gold diggers out to land rich husbands. This Technicolor film fable follows the exploits of two gorgeous women aboard a luxury ocean liner. One (Monroe) loves diamonds and the other (Russell) loves men. On the ship with them are an elderly diamond mine owner (Charles Coburn), a team of handsome and muscular Olympic athletes, a fascinating but very young millionaire (George Winslow) and a nosy private eye. Packed with 40 minutes of production numbers, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes includes the legendary title song and "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend."

For more about Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and the Gentlemen Prefer Blondes Blu-ray release, see Gentlemen Prefer Blondes Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Marilyn Monroe, Jane Russell, Charles Coburn, Elliott Reid, Tommy Noonan, Taylor Holmes

Gentlemen Prefer Blondes Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

20th Century Fox's high definition remaster of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes may prove slightly controversial, for one reason only—look closely at the 1080p/AVC-encoded picture and you'll notice that the natural 35mm grain structure has been dampened somewhat by digital noise reduction, occasionally giving it the appearance of being frozen in place. That said—and before you start writing angry e-mails to the studio—this is far from the most egregious use of DNR I've seen. Actually, the film looks quite striking here; the restoration has left the print in absolutely pristine shape, and the DNR is really only something you'll notice if you're projecting the film onto an extremely large screen or standing immediately in front of your television, pixel peeping. Yes, the image seems a bit softened, but there's none of the smeary, plastic quality that you sometimes associate with noise filtering. No halo-inducing edge enhancement either. In terms of clarity, this is still a drastic step up from the previously released DVD, with everything looking tighter and sharper and better defined. Where the encode really impresses, though, is the vivid Technicolor palette, which easily deserves the term "eye candy." This is a prime example of that distinctive Fox Technicolor look from the '50s—bubbly and creamy-toned and absolutely gorgeous to behold. Look no further than the opening musical number, with its purple curtains and red sequined dresses and pink-feathered headpieces. On second thought, look further—you'll want to, as the film is visually stunning from start to finish. Even with the moderate application of DNR, Fox's restoration deserves high marks.


Gentlemen Prefer Blondes Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

As with all of the Marilyn Monroe titles Fox is releasing this week, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes' original sound mix has been lightly retooled into a modern multi-channel presentation, via a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track. Don't worry, purists, the changes are minimal. The mix, like Marilyn herself, is decidedly front-heavy—waka, waka—with the rear speakers only used to provide some breathing room for the score and to provide quiet ambience during the more hectic scenes, like the clamor of the ship-boarding sequence. Although somewhat constrained by the recording techniques of the time—no real bass, somewhat thin highs—the musical numbers sound wonderful, relatively rich and free of peaking, popping, crackles, or hisses. The vocals, in particular, are easy on the ears. Dialogue is clear and clean too, and always easily understood, sitting comfortably at the top of the mix. A Dolby Digital 1.0 track is included for comparison, and the disc also features a generous selection of dubs and subtitle options. See above for details.
