Gentlemen Prefer Blondes… well, some do anyway.

Jane Russell and Marilyn Monroe star in Howard Hawks' wicked musical romp Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. You may have heard the showstopper before — a little ditty about diamonds and girls and best friends, something like that. The American Film Institute's Silver Theatre screens a new 35mm print of the 1953 classic. Saturday, April 16, at 7:30 p.m., Sunday, April 17, at 6:45 p.m., Monday, April 18, at 4:30 p.m., Tuesday, April 19, at 4:30 p.m. and 9:45 p.m., Wednesday, April 20, at 4:30 p.m. AFI Silver Theatre, 8633 Colesville Road, Silver Spring. Tickets are $11 general admission. Call 301-495-6720 or visit
