Some Like it Hot

Two down on their luck jazz musicians—Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis at arguably their finest and funniest—find themselves out of a job and on the run after the police raid the speakeasy they perform in, and they inadvertently get wrapped up in a gang war. With no money and nowhere to hide, a Florida resort gig with Sweet Sue and her Society Syncopators seems like the perfect getaway. There’s just one problem: the Syncopators are an all-female band, so Joe and Jerry need to improvise. Armed with some dodgy wigs and wobbly falsettos, they manage to join the Syncopators, where they meet Sugar Kane (Marilyn Monroe): a hooch-swilling, ukulele-playing knockout with a soft spot for bad-boy saxophone players. Under the direction of legendary Hollywood filmmaker, Billy Wilder (Double Indemnity, The Apartment), and featuring an Academy Award-winning screenplay co-written by Wilder and his frequent collaborator, I.A.L. Diamond (The Apartment, Monkey Business), Some Like It Hot has sat atop scores of “Best of” lists and remains beloved by audiences almost sixty years after its initial release.
