Classic comedy movie from 1959, Some Like It Hot

Starring Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon and Marilyn Monroe, Some Like It Hot is a 1959 black and white comedy movie.

On the run from a mob, after witnessing a Chicago gangland massacre, Curtis and Lemmon dress up as women, join an all-female band and head off to Florida.

Who turns up but the gangsters themselves.

It’s a funny film with a good plot.

Marilyn Monroe is great.

Jack Lemmon, as Daphne, receives a marriage proposal to which Tony Curtis, as Josephine, asks:

“Why would a guy want to marry a guy?”

The movie had a budget of $2.9 million and made $49 million at the box office.
