Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon and Marilyn Monroe Swing Back to Movie Theaters Nationwide in the Iconic Comedy Some Like It Hot, June 11 and 14 Only, as Part of the TCM Big Screen Classics Series
WHAT: Music, mobsters and Marilyn Monroe fuel the mixed-up madness in the 1959 classic film that holds the No. 1 spot in the American Film Institute’s list of 100 funniest American movies of all time – and nearly 60 years after its original release, Some Like It Hot returns to movie screens for two days only on June 11 and 14, as part of the TCM Big Screen Classics series from Turner Classic Movies and Fathom Events. Each screening will also feature specially produced commentary by TCM host Tiffany Vazquez before and after the feature.
Struggling musicians Joe (Tony Curtis) and Jerry (Jack Lemmon) find themselves fleeing the Chicago mafia after witnessing the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre. Panicked and penniless, the only way out of Chicago is to disguise themselves as women and join a Florida-bound female jazz band. As Joe tries to win the heart of the band’s lead singer, Sugar (Marilyn Monroe), Jerry tries to avoid passes from a flirtatious millionaire (Joe E. Brown), all while the mafia closes in.
