#92 | Marilyn Monroe stars in Some Like it Hot

I don't think I've ever recovered from watching Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon all on screen together. This trio of talent is absolutely incomparable and in my opinion will never be remade. Some like it hot is a marvel of cinematic genius, this romantic comedy is exceedingly entertaining from beginning to end.

If you've never sat down to watch this historic cinema masterpiece I highly recommend you do, even if you want to watch Monroe in action, this is by far one of her best comedic performances as Sugar Kane. The plot sees two musicians Joe and Jerry who witness a mob hit, they soon realise the mob might be after them so they decide to flee the state. They accidentally run into a female band who are touring the country, the pair quickly disguise themselves as women and join the all female band, but further complications set in...

Some like it hot is a perfect rom com, written by none other than Billy Wilder who brought us The Seven Year Itch (1955), Sunset Boulevard (1950) and Sabrina (1954) to name a few! This feature holds all the elements to a perfect film, a problematic yet justified crime, loveably silly characters, a forbidden romance, unlikely threat and a perfectly satisfying end. Some like it hot never fails to bring a smile to my face, even thinking about this film brings me joy, it easily belongs on the top 100 list and should defiantly be your next watch!
