Continuity mistake: At the end of the "Bye, Bye Baby" song the two girls are standing at the railing with two people in between them and the detective. When the shot cuts to their backs the two people in between the detective and the girls have disappeared.
Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953)
Directed by: Howard Hawks
Starring: Charles Coburn, Marilyn Monroe, Jane Russell, Elliott Reid
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Marilyn Monroe sings "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend", her hair is styled in a sleek bob. In the dressing room scene directly following the musical number, Marilyn has supposedly just walked off stage, but her hair has transformed from sleek to curly.
Other mistake: During Dorothy's and the detective's date, they are outside while the boat is moving, yet there is no wind blowing around. Since the ship is moving there should be wing blowing past the two.
Trivia: At the end of the movie, there is a double wedding at sea with the ship's captain officiating. Most people assume that a ship's captain automatically has that authority. However, in order to officiate at a wedding at sea, the captain also must be a minister, a judge or justice of the peace, or a Notary Public.
Lorelei Lee: There was an old man named Sidney... Who drank till he ruined a kidney. It shriveled and shrank, but he drank and he drank... He had his fun doing it, didn't he?
Dorothy Shaw: You know I think you're the only girl in the world who can stand on a stage with a spotlight in her eye and still see a diamond inside a man's pocket.
Olympic athlete: Hi. Remember me?
Lorelei Lee: Yes. You're one of the Olympic athletes.
Olympic athlete: I'm the only 4-letter man on the team.
Lorelei Lee: You should be ashamed to admit it. No, don't say another word. No, don't say another word.
