Event Details

SOME LIKE IT HOT

1959, Park Circus/MGM, 119 min, USA, Dir: Billy Wilder

Musicians Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon go on the lam from the Chicago mob, cross-dressing to escape with an all-girl band and creating a situation where luscious Marilyn Monroe doesn't know if she's falling for a playboy (Curtis) or a playgirl. Wilder's insane blend of sexual confusion and flawless slapstick gave Curtis the best comic role of his career. Biggest on-set problem: keeping Curtis and Lemmon from looking too good in women's clothes.


THE SEVEN YEAR ITCH
1955, 20th Century Fox, 105 min, Dir: Billy Wilder

In this classic comedy from director Billy Wilder, family man Richard Sherman (Tom Ewell) finds his faithfulness tested when his wife and kids go on vacation - leaving him alone to consort with the voluptuous, beautiful woman next door (Marilyn Monroe). Features the now-iconic shot of Monroe getting her skirt blown upwards over a blustery sidewalk grate.
