3/29/1959 Some Like It Hot

March 29, 1959.  On this date Billy Wilder's classic comedy Some Like It Hot was released.  Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon starred as two musicians who accidentally witnessed a mob killing  and have to go on the run in drag.  Among the other members of the all-girl band: Sugar Kane, played by Marilyn Monroe.

The flick was nominated for six Oscars and won one.


  1. One of my favorite movies of all time!

  2. I really hadn't watched until we got the DVD recently (unless I saw it on t.v. when I was a kid!) Incidentally, when the movie was first released, it was banned in Kansas. (!!!)
