One of the best films ever recorded, How to Marry a Millionaire is witty, relevant, stylish, and beautiful. I'm a huge fan of movies of the 30's - 60's. I get caught up in the sets, costumes, music, and language of these classic films. Millionaire is a prize example of quintessential 1950's set decoration, designed by Stuart A. Reiss and Walter M. Scott. This amazing design duo has created sets for films such as Peyton Place, An Affair to Remember, Desk Set, and All about Eve. You'll fall in love with the glamorous Sutton Place penthouse shared by Lauren Bacall, Marilyn Monroe, and Betty Grable. This movie is a must see for anyone who appreciates fine films, and luxurious sets. Netflix it tonight!
