Billy Wilder’s SOME LIKE IT HOT (PG, 1959, 121 min)
When Chicago musicians Joe (Tony Curtis) and Jerry (Jack Lemmon) witness a gangland shooting, they quickly board a 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 falls for Daphne, and a mob boss refuses to fall for their hoax!
Billy Wilder’s THE SEVEN YEAR ITCH (NR, 1955, 105 min)
Like thousands of other Manhattanites, Tom Ewell annually packs his wife and children off to summer vacation, staying behind to work at the office. This particular summer, Tom begins fantasizing about the many women he'd foresworn upon getting married. He is jolted back to reality when he meets his new upstairs neighbor---luscious model Marilyn Monroe. Inviting her to dinner, Tom intends to sweep her off her feet and into the boudoir, but things don't quite work out that way.
