Gentlemen Prefer Blondes
When told she was not the star of the film, Marilyn Monroe was quoted: "Well whatever I am, I'm still the blonde."


Gentlemen Marry Brunettes
Broadway star Gwen Verdon had one number as a hotel maid, but her sexy moves were deemed obscene. She was cut, although her name appears in some cast lists, and her scene re-shot with a non-musical performer.


Queen Christina
The scene where Christina goes around the room at the inn, remembering the night she spent with her lover, was choreographed so meticulously that Greta Garbo performed the scene to a metronome.
