Lorelei Lee is just a little girl from Little Rock who takes the world by storm and teaches its gentlemen that "kissing your hand may make you feel very good but a diamond and sapphire bracelet lasts forever." Anita Loos first published the diaries of the ultimate gold-digging blonde in the flapper days of 1925. Gentlemen Prefer Blondes follows Lorelei and her best friend Dorothy from Hollywood to Manhattan to the capitals of Europe, pursued by eager suitors all the while. In the Central of Europe, with a new diamond tiara in her handbag, she meets a travelling American millionaire who just might be the one. So she retires her diary, but not for long, because "it is bright ideas that keep home fires burning, and prevent a divorce from taking all of the bloom off Romance."
