Some Like It Hot (1959): Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon and Billy Wilder

     In 2000, the American Film Institute (AFI) named Some Like It Hot (1959) as the greatest American comedy of all time. The honor gave further deserved recognition to the classic film, which Roger Ebert called “one of the enduring treasures of the movies…” Masterfully directed by Billy Wilder, Some Like It Hot is pitch-perfect, full of timeless scenes from beginning to end. The cast is amazing, including Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon and George Raft. Naughty and suggestive at times, the film also stirred a censorship debate and was part of the catalyst to the studios ditching the prudish Production Code in the mid-1960′s. On a side note, Some Like It Hot was originally planned to be filmed in color, but the garishness of Tony Curtis’ and Jack Lemmon’s heavy make-up led to the decision to shoot in black and white.
     1929: When struggling musicians Joe (Tony Curtis) and Jerry (Jack Lemmon) accidentally witness a gangland shooting in Chicago, the Mob is out to get them… 
     Forced to go on the lam, the two dress in drag and join an all-girl- band heading to Florida… 
     the girls are lots of fun… 
     but one particularly sexy girl, Sugar (Marilyn Monroe), really shines… 

     and catches the eye of Joe… 
     meanwhile Jerry has hilariously caught the fancy of a prospective suitor as well… 
     Joe and Sugar’s romance spikes… 

     but he cannot reveal his true identity… 
     countless classic moments ensue… 
     and the cleverly acted events unfold…
