Lorelei Lee (Marilyn Monroe) and her girl-friend Jane Russell, sing in a nightclub where Marilyn sets her cap for wealthy Tommy Noonan. When the latter's father forestalls the marriage, Marilyn gets Tommy to send her and Jane to Europe, all expenses paid. On the ship, Elliot Reid has been hired to spy on Marilyn, but he spends most of his time courting Jane. However, he does get Marilyn in a compromising situation with Charles Coburn, who later steals his wife's tiara for her. In Paris, the girls find the police waiting for them and they hear that Noonan has canceled their credit. They get jobs in a French club, where the police mistakenly arrest Jane, decked out in a blonde wig. Reid helps the girls get back the tiara and Noonan's father becomes reconciled to Marilyn for a double-wedding finale.
