Some Like It Hot

Opens on May 5

Director: Billy Wilder Run Time: 122 min. Release Year: 1959

Starring: George Raft, Jack Lemmon, Marilyn Monroe, Pat O’Brien, Tony Curtis

After witnessing a Mafia murder, slick saxophone player Joe (Tony Curtis) and his long-suffering buddy, Jerry (Jack Lemmon), improvise a quick plan to escape from Chicago with their lives. Disguising themselves as women, they join an all-female jazz band and hop a train bound for sunny Florida. While Joe pretends to be a millionaire to win the band’s sexy singer, Sugar (Marilyn Monroe), Jerry finds himself pursued by a real millionaire (Joe E. Brown) as things heat up and the mobsters close in.

“The film is an outrageous, hilarious, and amazingly unpretentious trip through a funhouse of sexual identities.” ~ Chris Cabin, Slant Magazine
