Nominated for 6 Academy Awards, and winner for costumes, Some Like It Hot is the quintessential madcap farce from legendary director Billy Wilder (Sunset Boulevard) and screenwriter I.A.L. Diamond (The Apartment). With "dazzling performances by Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis, and a memorably comic turn by Marilyn Monroe" (Leonard Maltin) Some Like It Hot is not only "one of Wilder's funniest satires" (Time Out) but is "one of the greatest of all film comedies" (The Motion Picture Guide). When Chicago musicians Joe (Curtis) and Jerry (Lemmon) accidentally witness a gangland shooting, they quickly board a southbound train to Florida, disguised as Josephine and Daphne, the two newest and homeliest - members of an all-girl jazz band. Their cover is perfect...until a lovelorn singer (Monroe) falls for "Josephine," and ancient playboy (Joe E. Brown) falls for "Daphne," and a mob boss (George Raft), who refuses to fall for their hoax, wants them put on ice for good!
