Philippa Hawker, The Age, 3 May 2002, The Culture, p. 4

Marilyn Monroe impersonators started early. There is even an example of the phenomenon in one of her most famous films - a scene in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953) in which Jane Russell, appearing in court, passes herself off as Marilyn's character, Lorelei Lee. She wears a platinum blonde wig, speaks in a husky whisper and gives an impromptu performance of Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend.
