Mee-Yow Thursday

During filming of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes Marilyn Monroe kept insisting on retakes despite the director, Howard Hawks' approval of each take.

When the production company asked Hawks how work could be sped up, he retorted: "Three wonderful ideas: replace Marilyn, rewrite the script to make it shorter, and get a new director."
