Based on the novel Gentlemen Prefer Blondes ; the Illuminating Diary of
a Professional Lady by Anita Loos (New York, 1925).
Notorious blonde gold digger Lorelei Lee (Ruth Taylor) books passage on an ocean liner for herself
and a friend, Dorothy Shaw (Alice White), with money "borrowed" from Chicago button king Gus
Eisman (Ford Sterling). Also bound for Europe on the liner is America's richest bachelor, Henry
Spoffard (Holmes Herbert), who plans to investigate reports of immoral activities of American
tourists in Paris. To amuse herself while Spoffard is seasick in his cabin, Lorelei persuades Sir
Francis Beekman (Mack Swain), a wealthy Englishman who is attracted to her, to give her money to
buy his wife's diamond tiara. In Paris, Lorelei lures Spoffard to her room, then hides him in a closet
while his mother, their lawyer, the Beekmans, and Gus Eisman all come demanding explanations.
The situation is finally resolved; Spoffard and Lorelei marry on the return trip to New York.
