Named the greatest comedy of all time by the American Film Institute, Some Like It Hot showcases the sidesplitting talents of director Billy Wilder and stars Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon, and Tony Curtis.

When Chicago musicians Joe (Tony Curtis) and Jerry (Jack Lemmon) accidentally witness a gangland shooting, they quickly board a southbound 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 lovelorn 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.
