SOME LIKE IT HOT (Theatrical Release USA 1959)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

Some Like It Hot—not a typical 1959 movie—plays out well with a cast that works well on the big screen: Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis, and Marilyn Monroe. It is what it is—a watch that takes some involvement and is easily enjoyed.

Storyline

Two male musicians see a serious crime and hide, disguised as women, in a female band group.
