Billy Wilder's timeless screwball comedy Some Like It Hot needs no introduction - with it's non-stop action, smutty one-liners, sexual innuendo and skilful blend of high and low comedy, it is widely regarded as one of the most hilarious movies ever made. On the run from Chicago mobsters, musicians Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon disguise themselves as women to join an all-female jazz band bound for Florida. Curtis double masquerades as an impotent millionaire to win the irresistible Marilyn Monroe, who steals the show as singer Sugar Kane, while Lemmon is pursued by a real millionaire. Daring at the time for its themes of cross-dressing, gender identity and homosexuality, the film was released without approval from the Motion Picture Production Code, yet was an overwhelming success and went on to receive six Oscar nominations. With a knowing wink, Marilyn takes centre stage on this classic US One Sheet poster for one of the all time classic comedies.
Conservation backed on linen. Backing has smoothed one vertical and three horizontal machine folds (as issued), some light double creasing to vertical fold and light creases across lower corners. Minor colour touching has diminished light surface wear to folds and crossfolds. Minor bumps to corners and minor splits to edges of folds prior to backing. Image and colours otherwise excellent.
