Some Like It Hot
(Some Like It Hot) Director: Billy Wilder, USA, 1959, English version / Czech subtitles, 120 min
When Chicago “speakeasy” musicians Joe (Tony Curtis) and Jerry (Jack Lemmon) 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-girl jazz band. Their cover is perfect... until a lovelorn singer, Sugar Kane (Marilyn Monroe) falls for Joe (Curtis doing a hilarious send-up of Cary Grant), an ancient millionaire falls for “Daphne” and a mob boss (George Raft) refuses to fall for the hoax. Nominated for 7 Academy Awards, this is one of the greatest motion picture comedies of all time.
