Some Like It Hot (1959)

121 minutes, not rated, directed by Billy Wilder

To escape Chicago after witnessing the St. Valentine’s Day massacre, two musicians dress as women and join an all-girl band in Miami. Only Billy Wilder could turn this wacky premise into a madcap masterpiece with brilliant performances from Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon, and Tony Curtis. Introduced by Caroline Harris, Associate Director for Education.
