How to Marry a Millionaire (1953)

Three women set out to find eligible millionaires to marry, but find true love in the process.
Likable and entertaining, but harmless and old-fashioned romantic comedy - with a highly predictable plot.

Halliwell**: "Cinemascope's first attempt at modern comedy was not quite as disastrous as might have been expected, largely because of the expensiveness of everything and the several stars still brightly twinkling, but the handling of this variation on the old Golddiggers theme, while entirely amiable, is dramatically very slack."

Maltin***: "Terrific ensemble work in dandy comedy..."
