Silver Screen Sundays: Some Like it Hot

It is time for some Marilyn Monroe! In perhaps her best movie, 1959's "Some Like It Hot" (though "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" is a pretty close second") Marilyn, Tony Curtis & Jack Lemmon were directed by the famed Billy Wilder in this screwball comedy of epic proportions. Two struggling musicians witness the St. Valentine's Day Massacre and try to find a way out of the city before they are found and killed by the mob. The only job that will pay their way is an all girl band so the two dress up as women and while Curtis falls for Monroe, he can't tell her his gender, and Lemmon has a rich suitor who will not take "No," for an answer. Hilarity ensues ;)
