Write a critique of this sequence utilizing semiotics and feminist theory. Deal with the entire sequence, not just Marilyn’s number.

Pay attention to all the aspects of mis-en-scene, including performance, music, lighting, acting, costume, setting, cinematography.

What are the signifiers and what do they signify? What is/are the code(s)?  Deal with embodiment, typology, gestures, and all that.

From a feminist point of view, who is Marilyn Monroe? Who is Sugar Cane? And who are Daphne and Josephine?

Are we dealing with the male gaze here? the objectification of woman? or not?
