A four-volume set of classic Marilyn Monroe films, containing the classic comedy Some Like it Hot (Wilder, 1959), Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953), The Seven Year Itch (1955) and How to Marry a Millionaire (1953).
'Some Like It Hot' opens in February 1929 with unemployed musicians Joe (Tony Curtis) and Jerry (Jack Lemmon) on the run after witnessing the St Valentine's Day Massacre. Pursued by gangsters led by the ruthless Spats Colombo (George Raft), the duo are forced to disguise themselves as women and join Sweet Sue (Joan Shawlee)'s all-girl band on the next train to Florida. Joe falls for Sugar Kane (Monroe), the band's singer, while Jerry finds himself pursued enthusiastically by millionaire Osgood Fielding III (Joe E. Brown). Comic complications ensue.
In 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes', showgirl Lorelei Lee (Monroe), accompanied by her stage partner and best friend, Dorothy Shaw (Jane Russell), sets sail for Paris where she plans to meet up with and marry her wealthy beau, Gus Esmond Jr. (Tommy Noonan). However, Lorelei's love of diamonds threatens to get both girls into a jam as Ernie Malone (Elliott Reid), the private detective hired by Mr Esmund Sr. (Taylor Holmes) to keep a close eye on his son's bride-to-be, joins them on the ship.
In 'The Seven Year Itch', happily-married Richard Sherman (Tom Ewell) is left in New York City while his wife and child go on summer vacation. His lively imaginings of what a summer of freedom has in store seem to have some validity when a beautiful and sensuous young girl (Monroe) moves into the sublet upstairs.
Finally, in 'How to Marry a Millionaire', models Schatze (Lauren Bacall), Pola (Monroe) and Loco (Betty Grable) come up with a scheme to get themselves rich husbands. They rent an expensive New York apartment in the hopes that it will help them attract the attention of eligible men. However, their plan does not turn out as expected...
