Some Like It Hot Movie Summary

Jerry (Jack Lemon) and Joe (Tony Curtis) are two down on their luck musicians. The year is 1929, the city is Chicago, and prohibition is in full swing. They are playing in a band in a mob speak easy cleverly hidden in funeral parlor when the joint is raided. They narrowly escape and are now out of work.

They trek to their employment agency where they are told no jobs are available except for one in Indiana and one for female musicians. One of the reasons they are so down on their luck is that Joe likes to gamble away their earnings and the coats off of their backs on losing horses.

Jerry and Joe are desperate and arrange to borrow a car from one of Jerry’s girl friends to get to Indiana. Meanwhile, their former employer, Spats Colombo, the infamous mob boss that owned the “mortuary” has learned who betrayed his speakeasy to the cops and is out for revenge.
