Cancelled: Some Like It Hot at HOME

Tom Grieve, Cinema Editor

Some Like It Hot at HOME Manchester, Manchester 28 November 2020 Tickets from £5.50 — Book now

A perennial feature at the top of lists of the greatest comedy films of all time, Billy Wilder’s dizzying farce Some Like It Hot boasts performances from three of Hollywood’s most celebrated icons. Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon star as struggling musicians forced to flee Chicago having witnessed a brutal gangland massacre. Marilyn Monroe is Sugar Kane, the unsuspecting singer who enchants the pair after they decide to disguise themselves as Josephine and Geraldine in order to join an all-girl band on the road to sunny Florida.

Of course, even the best laid plans go awry. The band checks into a hotel also hosting a convention of mobsters, laying the way for an all-time comedy of crosses, double crosses and mistaken identity as the musicians struggle to keep their secret under wraps whilst trying to romance Miss. S. Kane. Some Like it Hot is a masterclass in physical comedy, but watch out for Curtis’ send-up of Cary Grant as he tries to impress by affecting the debonair mannerisms of a wealthy yacht owner.
