Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell performing Two Little Girls From Littlerock in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953). Directed by Howard Hawks.
“Marilyn had a never-ending thirst for knowledge and self-improvement. She loved poetry and music and was instinctively drawn to culture, to all the arts, but money and power were not to be gained by coercion. Especially not when applied to Marilyn. She would flit off like a butterfly. I remember her saying, "If they aren't going to be fair and nice, I can always leave. I can get by on very little. After all, I've done it before." —Jane Russell about Marilyn in the foreword of Marie Claire’s Marilyn and the Camera article.
