Some Like it Hot (1959) *

During Prohibition, two musicians, Joe and Gerald (Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon), witness a gangland slaying in Chicago. Hunted, they make an escape by joining an all-girl band as “Josephine” and “Daphne”. Sugar, (Marilyn Monroe) a fellow band member forms a bond with ‘Josephine’ and confides her desires in an “ideal man”, which Joe is only too happy to become while away from the band. Meanwhile a rich-old-man falls for ‘Daphne’. Eventually, the past and present collide. Marilyn Monroe is as smoking hot as any of today’s actresses. Great performances by Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis and whoever created Marilyn Monroe’s wardrobe.

Awf Hand gives four out of four stars and adds: Now I get the whole Marilyn Monroe thing. Damn.

Timely post and I may watch it again soon as my own personal tribute.

Joe E. Brown's performance and face is gorgeous and I've always wondered if they paid tribute to him in Total Recall.
