Critic-at-large, H. Hobart Cornell (pictured below in photo by Jeffrey Allison) muses about Billy Wilder’s 1959 film “Some Like It Hot” on the VMFA blog.
Follow two hapless musicians who change their identities — to put it mildly — while on the lam from mob bootleggers in 1929 wintery Chicago who end up in sunny Miami playing with an all-girl band.
Whether it is your first time or the twentieth, this one never runs out of steam.
Some Like It Hot will deliver the wit, cleverness, and belly laughs you so richly deserve.
As a part of the new Friday Film Series at the Virginia Museum “Some Like It Hot” will be playing this Friday, August 13th at 6:30pm. Often called one of America’s funniest films of all time, “Some Like It Hot” stars, Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon, and Tony Curtis.
