Some Like It Hot
Billy Wilder's Academy Award-winning classic comedy stars Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis as a pair of unemployed musicians who inadvertently become witnesses to the St. Valentine Day's Massacre. To escape the wrath of the gangsters, Joe (Tony Curtis) and Jerry (Jack Lemmon) are forced to hit the road dressed in drag, taking the only jobs available with an all-girl band bound for Miami. Along the way, both men fall for lead singer and blond bombshell Sugar Kane, (Marilyn Monroe), but are unable to fulfil their desires for fear of revealing their identity. Joe tries to get around this by adopting a third identity for seduction, that of a shy millionaire who sounds strangely like Cary Grant. Meanwhile Jerry has his own problems, fighting off the advances of one Osgood E. Fielding, an amorous millionaire hypnotized by Jerry's "feminine" charms.
