The Film

Set in Chicago, 1929, saxophone player Joe (Tony Curtis) and his sensible, long-suffering buddy Jerry (Jack Lemmon) are working in a speakeasy owned by mob gangster ‘Spats Columbo’. When they witness a mob hit they hatch a plan to escape to Florida disguised as members of an all-female jazz band.

Starring: Marilyn Monroe | Tony Curtis | Jack Lemmon

Director: Billy Wilder

Screenplay: Billy Wilder | I.A.L Diamond

Producer: Billy Wilder

THEY SAY: Some Like It Hot is effortlessly fluent, joyous and buoyant: a high-concept comedy that stays as high as a kite, while other comedies flag. “Nobody’s perfect” is the last line. Wilder, Lemmon, Curtis and Monroe come pretty close” (Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian) 

WE SAY: Recently topping a BBC Culture poll of the greatest comedies ever made, it’s easy to see why Some Like It Hot is a classic – with three brilliant central performances, it delivers on several levels and easily stands up to multiple repeat viewings.
