Some Like it Hot (Saturday @ PCC)

Some Like it Hot

A special screening, with the profits going to Amnesty International.

With: Marilyn Munroe, Tony Curtis, Jack Lemon

The antics of two idiot musicians who, after witnessing the St Valentine’s Day Massacre, struggle to escape the gangsters by dressing up in drag and joining an all-girl band. Comic complications aplenty ensue when one of the two strives to express his lust for Marilyn, while the other is being pursued by an amorous Joe E. Brown.

To steal from an amusing IMDB reviewer:

Marilyn, her trademark, displeasingly infantile voice aside, is a bombshell of thermonuclear dimensions, whose powers of titillation will not expire so long as there are hormones and/or Viagra. The sexual content, for socio-historical reasons cannot be as explicit as we’ve come to expect, but there’s still plenty of it, from Monroe’s see-through outfit to the double entendre worthy of the Farelli Brothers – including overtly gay themes that have a cult following of their own.

Saturday, April 1 – 1pm
Prince Charles Cinema
Leicester Square
