TOM’s Film Club: Some Like It Hot (1959)
February 14, 2017Book Tickets
“A joyful classic which delivers on comedic value no matter how many times you've seen it.” Angie Errigo, Empire
As one of the first of twenty-five films to be selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry during its founding year of 1989 (for being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”), Some Like It Hot has garnered a reputation over the years as being widely considered one of the greatest and funniest comedies ever made.
After witnessing the Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon must masquerade as female musicians (Josephine and Daphne, respectively) to avoid detection from the mafia. They hop on a train to Florida as part of an all-woman jazz band, where they meet and inevitably fall for the alluring Sugar Kane, played wonderfully by Marilyn Monroe, oblivious that her new female companions are really just men in drag. Directed by the ever brilliant Billy Wilder, this film is a gender-bending comedy of errors, but it’s also a comedy of the highest order.
