"SOME LIKE IT HOT" - American 1959
Starring Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon, Billy Wilder's most popular comedy operates as a spoof of gangster films and a comedy about gender roles. Jerry (Lemmon) and Joe (Curtis) are two musicians on the dole when they witness the St. Valentine's Day Massacre. With Spats Columbo (George Raft) and his men looking for the duo, they go undercover as musicians cross dressing and joining an all female band headed for a gig in Florida. Become a woman allows Joe/Josephine to spend time with Sugar (Monroe), the latest woman that catches Joe's fancy. Jerry/Daphne on the other hand finds himself romanced by a rich man (Joe E. Brown) who won't take the hint as Jerry tries to stave off his advances. Wilder mixes social commentary so deftly with comedy that it reminds us how entertaining a movie can be without being heavy handed.
