Big Screen Classics: SOME LIKE IT HOT
February 10, 2014
Chicago musicians Joe (Tony Curtis) and Jerry (Jack Lemmon) lose their gig when a speakeasy owned by mob boss Spats Columbo (George Raft) is raided by the cops.
Weeks later, on February 14th, Joe and Jerry get a job performing in Urbana and end up witnessing a gangland St. Valentine's Day massacre in a parking garage. Fearing that they'll be next to be fitted for cement shoes, Joe devises an ingenious plan for disguising their identities: dressing in drag and performing as "Josephine" and "Daphne" in an all-girl travelling orchestra.
