Synopsis

When Chicago musicians Joe (Tony Curtis) and Jerry (Jack 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 (Marilyn Monroe) falls for “Josephine,” an ancient playboy (Joe. E. Brown) falls for “Daphne,” and a mob boss (George Raft) refuses to fall for their hoax!

Nominated* for six Academy Awards,® Some Like It Hot is the quintessential madcap farce and “one of the greatest of all film comedies” (The Motion Picture Guide).

*1959: Directing, Actor (Jack Lemmon), Adapted Screenplay, Cinematography (B&W), Art Direction (B&W), Costume Design (B&W — won)

Reviews

TIME Magazine | May 20, 2011

Lemmon digs out most of the laughs in the script. As for Marilyn, she's been trimmer, slimmer and sexier in earlier pictures.

Variety Staff Variety | August 15, 2007

Pictures like this, with a sense of humor that is as broad as it can be sophisticated, come along only infrequently.

Dave Kehr Chicago Reader | August 15, 2007

In many ways, the ultimate Billy Wilder film -- replete with breathless pacing, transvestite humor, and unflinching cynicism.

A.H. Weiler New York Times | January 01, 2000

Some Like It Hot does cool off considerably now and again, but Mr. Wilder and his carefree clowns keep it crackling and funny most of the time.

Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times | January 01, 2000

Wilder's 1959 comedy is one of the enduring treasures of the movies, a film of inspiration and meticulous craft.
