Some Like It Hot - Review
(1959)

We certainly like it hot — especially when hot means cross-dressing gents and buxom blonde bombshells! In this side-splitting comedy, Jerry (Jack Lemmon) and Joe (Tony Curtis) skip town disguised as female band members to escape the infamous gangster Spats Columbo. On their journey they meet the beautiful Sugar Kane Kowalczyk (Marilyn Monroe) and millionaire Osgood Fielding III (Joe E. Brown), and things really heat up.
