Some Like It Hot (1959) opened to critical and commercial success and remains one of the great Hollywood films. Set in 1920s Prohibition-era Chicago, two hard-up musicians witness the shooting of a police informer on the infamous St Valentine’s Day Massacre. To escape the Mafia, they disguise themselves as women and flee to Miami with an all-female jazz band. Familiar to many, it is a perfect film for late Summer in Sydney — Rotten Tomatoes calling it ‘A spry, quick-witted farce that never drags.’
