‘Some Like It Hot’ Plot Synopsis

In Some Like It Hot, two struggling musicians witness the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre and try to find a way out of the city before the mob finds and kills them. The only job that will pay their way is an all girl band, so the two men dress up as women. Once in hiding, one of them falls for another band member, but can’t tell her his gender. The other has a rich male suitor who will not take “No,” for an answer regardless of gender. Nobody’s perfect.

Are there anymore Billy Wilder films on anyone’s top 100? My favorites are Double Indemnity, Ace in the Hole, and The Apartment.

I don’t know if anyone going to nominate them for Movie House Memories, but in June, I will be reviewing Sunset Boulevard as part of our 12 Retro Movies Everyone Should See In 2017.
