From the brilliant minds of director Billy Wilder (One, Two, Three) and screenwriter I.A.L. Diamond (The Apartment) comes the quintessential madcap farce, starring the marvelous Marilyn Monroe (The Seven Year Itch) and her bosom companions Tony Curtis (Captain Newman, M.D.) and Jack Lemmon (The Fortune Cookie). When Chicago musicians Joe and Jerry accidentally witness a gangland shooting, they quickly board a southbound train to Florida, disguised as Josephine and Daphne, the two newest—and homeliest—members of an all-female jazz band. Their cover is perfect…until a lovelorn singer falls for Josephine, an ancient playboy falls for Daphne, and a mob boss refuses to fall for their hoax! Well, nobody’s perfect…except for the cast: Marilyn dazzles as Sugar “Kane” Kowalczyk; Tony and Jack give iconic performances; George Raft (A Bullet for Joey), Pat O’Brien (The Front Page) and Joe E. Brown (The Comedy of Terrors) inject Prohibition-era authenticity into the hilarity. Some Like It Hot won the 1960 Academy Award for Best Black-and-White Costume Design (Orry-Kelly) and received nominations for Best Actor (Lemmon), Director (Wilder), Adapted Screenplay (Wilder and Diamond), Black-and-White Cinematography (Charles Lang) and Black-and-White Art/Set Decoration (Ted Haworth and Edward G. Boyle).
