FILM CLUB: Some Like It Hot (12A) | (1959)

Two down-on-their-luck jazz musicians (Curtis and Lemmon) find themselves out of a job and on the lam after witnessing the St Valentine’s Day massacre of 1929. With no money and nowhere to hide, a gig with Sweet Sue and her Society Syncopators in sunny seems like the perfect way to escape the clutches of Chicago mobster George Raft. There’s just one hitch: the Syncopators are an all-female band.
In what might just be the greatest screwball comedy of errors ever committed to film, the highlights include Curtis’s playboy parody of Cary Grant, and what’s surely one of the great curtain lines of all time: Joe E. Brown’s bland “nobody’s perfect” when his fiancée (Lemmon) finally confesses that she’s a he.
Running Time: 121 minutes

A small group of volunteers have recently come together to organise a monthly film club here at The Welfare, aiming to screen classic & well-loved vintage films at least once a month.
