Also starring Marilyn Monroe and Tony Curtis.
Chicago, 1920: the pre-Depression, flapper era dominated by prohibition, hot music and tough racketeers. When Joe and Jerry, two musicians, witness the St. Valentine's Day Massacre, they nearly become victims themselves. The only escape is to join an all-girl jazz band heading for Florida ... With Curtis and Lemmon in drag and Marilyn Monroe as the tipsy, ukulele-playing Sugar, this frenetic spoof-gangster movie remains one of Hollywood's most enduring comedies.
