Bow Tie Cinema at the Harbour Center continues its ongoing weekend "Cine Classic" Film Series with director Billy Wilder's outrageous and still eyebrow raising sex romp, Some Like It Hot (1959)
Starring Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon, SLIH is considered one of the best comedies to ever come out of Hollywood with a wickedly gender bending plot that both celebrates and calls into question our ideas about the differences between the male and female sex.
Here's the trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CPkQ2OQAJSU
My commentary begins at 10:30 and includes little known/fascinating facts about the film's stars, director and production. The film starts at 11:00 a.m. Audience questions and comments are encouraged both before and after the screening.
Admission is $5.50 ($4.50 with a Bow Tie free Criterion Club card which can be obtained online at Bow Tie's website or at the theater.)
