I want you to find happiness and stop having fun

This is one of my favourite scenes ever in film history. Never before had we seen a group of chorus boys instead of chorus girls showing (not only) their legs and, what's more, wearing nude mini swimsuits! Everything in it exudes female empowerment: Jane Russell's total black look, the song's lyrics, the boys' dance, the tongue-in-cheek feel to the whole scene. Gentlemen Prefer Blondes is one of those films I have to watch several times a year, because, as Woody Allen said, "it keeps me from feeling depressed".
