The Olympic Team sail to Europe ...
Yup, its GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES once again, its starting just now - we love Lorelei Lee and her pursuit of diamonds but her pal Dorothy (Jane Russell - love that swaggercoat) has a good eye for beefcake and once she finds out the U.S. Olympic team are on board their ship to "Europe France" she wastes no time in joining them in the gym, the boys though are in strict training .... "Ain't there anyone here for love?" Its another terrific Jack Cole number that fits in perfectly with Howard Hawks' delirious extravaganza, along with 'Piggy' Beekman and Henry Spofforth III, and Piggy's wife (Norma Varden) and her tiara ...as Lorelei says, she just loves finding new places to wear diamonds.
