(1959, dir. Billy Wilder, 120 mins., NR)
After witnessing the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, musicians Joe and Jerry (Tony Curtis and Jack Lemon) flee Chicago by disguising themselves as women and joining an all-girl orchestra. Complications arise when Joe falls for the band’s lead singer, Sugar Kane Kowalczyk (Marilyn Monroe), and creates another identity, an oil tycoon, to seduce her. All the while Jerry, dolled up as Daphne, has found a millionaire of his own and the mob is hot on their trail. Featuring Oscar-winning costumes by Orry-Kelly.
