Some Like It Hot
One of the most beloved films of all time, this sizzling masterpiece by Billy Wilder set a new standard for Hollywood comedy. After witnessing a mob hit, Chicago musicians Joe and Jerry (Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon, in landmark performances) skip town by donning drag and joining an all-female band en route to Miami. The charm of the groups singer, Sugar Kane (Marilyn Monroe, at the height of her bombshell powers) leads them ever further into extravagant lies, as Joe assumes the persona of a millionaire to woo her and Jerrys female alter ego winds up engaged to a tycoon. With a whip-smart script by Wilder and I. A. L. Diamond, and sparking chemistry among its finely tuned cast, Some Like It Hot is as deliriously funny and fresh today as it was when it first knocked audiences out six decades ago.

"Assuming the picture is clear, the volume is turned on, and you dont hate film, the greatness of Billy Wilders Some Like It Hot will be obvious to you, completely and immediately. That"s it. Love at first sight. Because Some Like It Hot is manifestly wonderful..." Sam Wasson, Criterion

"SOME LIKE IT HOT is the embodiment of screwball-comedy excellence, with a plot that works just fine and a cast against whose comedic timing you could set a watch." Kathleen Sachs, Cine-File

"In the films unflaggingly delightful sleeping car sequencewatching it is like being tickled for ten minutes straightLemmons hands become one of his most expressive tools, often betraying the sheer sexual pleasure he feels being in such tight quarters with this hotsy-totsy [Monroe], who climbs into his bunk to share some whisky." - Michael Koresky, Sundance Now
