Some Like It Hot





"But why would a guy want to marry a guy?"
"Security!!!"

One of the first films I ever saw, thanks to the PBS telethon drives that used to (still?) happen every spring and autumn, before I ever understood about the Chicago Mob, Prohibition or why men might like to wear women's clothing.  It's still one of my favourites.  Easily Marilyn Monroe's best ever performance, with Tony Curtis making a fine faux Cary Grant and Jack Lemmon mercilessly stealing every scene he's in.  It's a thing of beauty that never gets old, tired or stale and that I still find myself quoting at odd hours of the morning.  Perfect, perfect, perfect.

This movie is on my Desert Island list.
