Tony Curtis (left) and Jack Lemmon (right) pretend to be women entertainers to escape the mob in ‘Some Like It Hot’ also starring Marilyn Monroe. It shows at The Varsity on Feb. 15.
Two Struggling musicians witness the St. Valentine's Day Massacre and are now on the run from the mob. Jerry and Joe cross-dress into an all-female band. In addition to hiding, each has his own problems; one falls for another band member but can't tell her his gender, and the other has a rich suitor who will not take "no" for an answer. The classic, black-and-white, John Huston-directed film stars Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon and Marilyn Monroe. (G)
