“Some Like It Hot” (United Artists, 1959). Set during the Prohibition era in 1929 Chicago, two musicians (played by Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon) witness a gangland murder, disguise themselves as women and travel to Florida as new members of an all-female band to hide from the mobsters. They both fall for the band’s lead singer (played by the breathy and sexy Marilyn Monroe), but the disguises and the mobsters get in the way. Racy, witty, and really funny. Written by Billy Wilder and I.A.L. Diamond. Directed by Billy Wilder. “Well, nobody’s perfect.”
