TUES­DAY

SOME LIKE IT HOT

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

1.25AM, ABC ★★★★

Set the recorder for this clas­sic. Two mu­si­cians on the run from cut­throat gang­sters dress up in drag and take fl ight with an all- girl jazz band. This 1959 screw­ball com­edy is a time­less clas­sic of the form, keep­ing the fun com­ing at a fast and fu­ri­ous rate. Writer- di­rec­tor Billy Wilder cor­rectly al­lows a lu­mi­nous Mar­i­lyn Monroe to steal the pic­ture away from some­times- hammy leads in Jack Lem­mon and Tony Curtis.
