    DescriptionFind out everything you could ever want to know (and more) about the movie, voted best comedy of the century by the American Film Institute. A daring tale of cross dressing from a time when the subject was all but taboo, "Some Like it Hot" (1959) tells the story of two jazz musicians who are forced to go undercover in an all-girls' band to escape from the mob. With an ingenious screenplay by I.A.L. Diamond and Billy Wilder, and flawless performances by Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon and the famously difficult Marilyn Monroe, "Some Like it Hot" is the embodiment of comic perfection. Includes: interviews with Billy Wilder, Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon, and others; complete facsimile of the screenplay with film stills from every scene; excerpts from the script's first draft; behind-the-scenes photos; original promotional materials from all around the world; annotated/illustrated Billy Wilder filmography.
