Synopsis

Notorious blonde gold digger Lorelei Lee books passage on an ocean liner for herself and a friend, Dorothy Shaw, with money "borrowed" from Chicago button king Gus Eisman. Also bound for Europe on the liner is America's richest bachelor, Henry Spoffard, 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, 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.
