Some Like It Hot

“I wanna be loved by you,
Just you, nobody else but you.
I wanna be loved by you alo-o-one….
Boop boop e doo.”

In anticipation of Netflix’s upcoming feature BLONDE (adapted from Joyce Carol Oates‘ biographical novel of the same name), we thought the time was right to revisit one of Marilyn Monroe‘s best-loved performances in a true Hollywood classic, SOME LIKE IT HOT.

Never better, Monroe shines, shimmies, and sparkles alongside Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis in Billy Wilder‘s iconic musical screwball comedy – a hilarious caper about mistaken identity, gender role-play, and the inescapable allure of ukeleles.

“Nobody’s perfect, as the film’s immortal closing line has it, but some comedies are.” (Times UK)

“The film is an outrageous, hilarious, and amazingly unpretentious trip through a funhouse of sexual identities.” (Slant Magazine)

SOME LIKE IT HOT (Billy Wilder, 1959 / 120 mins / G) | When two struggling musicians witness a major mob hit, they flee Chicago and go on the lam. Disguised as women, they join a touring all-female band. Complications (and hilarity) set in when one of the men falls for one of his “fellow” female musicians, while a rich suitor falls for the other.

Two musicians witness a mob hit and struggle to find a way out of the city before they are found by the gangsters. Their only opportunity is to join an all-girl band as they leave on a tour. To make their getaway they must first disguise themselves as women, then keep their identities secret and deal with the problems this brings - such as an attractive bandmate and a very determined suitor.
