Billy Wilder 's comedy masterpiece starring Marilyn Monroe
Tony Curtis , Jack Lemmon
It's Chicago 1929 - the pre-depression, flapper era dominated by prohibition, hot music and tough racketeers. When Joe and Jerry, two under-employed musicians, witness the St Valentine's Day massacre, they nearly become victims themselves. The only escape is a jazz band heading for Florida. There's one great advantage and one big problem - it's an all-girl orchestra! With Curtis and Lemmon in drag, joining Marilyn as a tipsy, ukelele-playing band singer, this spoof on gangster movies rapidly becomes one of Hollywood's funniest and most inventive comedies.
