Some Like It Hot 50th Anniversary Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: When Chicago musicians Joe (Tony Curtis) and Jerry (Jack Lemmon) accidentally witness a gangland shooting, they quickly board a south bound train to Florida, disguised as Josephine and Daphne, the two newest and homeliest members of an all-girl jazz band. Their cover is perfect... until a love lorn singer (Marilyn Monroe) falls for Josephine, an ancient playboy (Joe E. Brown) falls for Daphne, and a mob boss (George Raft) refuses to fall for their hoax! Nominated* for 6 Academy Awards®, Some Like It Hot is “the quintessential madcap farce and one of the greatest of all film comedies” (The Motion Picture Guide).

Review: This classic comedy film starred Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis as two low-rent musicians that accidentally witness a mob murder.  They go on the run in drag with a female band and meet up with Sugar (Marilyn Monroe).   The guys need to be extra careful not to be found out, because by coincidence a mobster convention is going on in Florida in the very hotel they end up staying at!  Tony Curtis ends up falling for Marilyn and begins to woo her dressed as a rich man by night.  This movie is absolutely hilarious and a wonderful example of the comedy skills for all three actors.  This is the first time that this film was available on blu-ray.  The high-definition transfer really came across nicely.  This is a fantastic release for any lover of vintage comedy and or the late great Marilyn Monroe.

Interest Range: Classic Comedy, Marilyn Monroe
