Some Like it Hot(Billy Wilder) 1959 **** 5/10/2016

Tony Curtis & Jack Lemmon are two down on their luck Chicago Jazz musicians when they inadvertently witness the machine gunning of 7 gangsters by a group of mobsters led by Spats(George Raft).  They go on the run as Josephine(Curtis) and Daphne(Lemmon), dressed as women playing sax and bass in an all women’s band headed down to Seminole, Florida.  In the band is sexpot blond Sugar(Marilyn Monroe), who blows your socks off with how sexy she really is.  A romance between her and Joe develops, as does one with “Daphne” and a millionaire old dog.  Dodging gangsters and dirty old men, the picture is erotic and sweet, a playful and affecting slice of heart from Billy Wilder.
