Gentlemen Marry Brunettes—Jane Russell and Jeanne Crain

How do you like your heroines? Blond? Brunette? Jane Russell and Jeanne Crain give you a dazzling choice in “Gentlemen Marry Brunettes.” They play a dark-haired sister act—but in a flashback to the gay Twenties both go platinum-topped, Jane as her own mother, Jeanne as the girls’ aunt. Filmed for e by Russ-Field (the producing venture Jane shares with husband Bob Waterfield), the movie rollicking comedy in real European locales.

It’s Scott Brady who lures Jane Russell to Paris, offering to get her into the Folies Bergére. As a theatrical agent, he’s a flop. But as a heart interest, he’s a rousing success with the impressionable Jane—till a mysterious rival parts them.

No male who was dead-broke, however dashing, would have fascinated Jane’s clever mother (also played by La Russell). In the Paris of 1926, that vivacious flapper was besieged by rich admirers from all Europe—and points east.

In present-day Paris, Jeanne Crain finds a beau, as sister Jane did. Alan Young’s a gentle, stage-struck fellow, who conceals the fact that he’s a multimillionaire. When he starts sending the two girls anonymous, lavish presents, trouble flares up.

Jeanne’s aunt (Jeanne again) was the other darling of the French capital back in the Jazz Age. With hilariously authentic costumes and hot rhythm, the sequence brings that era back to life. The modern story, too, is spiced with song.
