Will you look at that! Look how she moves! It’s like Jell-O on springs. Must have some sort of built-in motor or something. I tell you, it’s a whole different sex! (film draft)

First off, many apologies for my failure to timely make a subsequent pick—to both our readers and David, patient David. I’ll be keeping with my exploration of American cinema with one of the funniest comedies of all time:

Lemmon Some Like it Hot

Some Like it Hot (1959)

Two guys (Jack Lemmon & Tony Curtis) dress as women as they run from the mob after witnessing a massacre. Meeting up with Marilyn Monroe on their journey, they find themselves in Florida at the mercy of rich old men with yachts trying to catch one of these “beauties.”

Like “It Happened One Night,” this film has aged extremely well. No slow-moving plot-line or flat-falling jokes here.

It’s also interesting to see Jack Lemmon differently than most of my generation remember him (Grumpy Old Men).

    And you question Happy Together? Ha!

    (I desperately need to see more of Lemmon’s filmography.)
