Some, Like it Hot
First released in 1959, this comedy film, was both a critical and a commercial success and won many accolades and is now ranked among the film industry’s “greats”, generally regarded as one of Hollywood’s greatest comedies. It was produced and directed by the renowned Billy Wilder and the screenplay was written by Wilder and A.I. Diamond. The premise was derived from an earlier French film entitled Fanfare for Love. The principal cast comprised Tony Curtis, Marilyn Monroe and Jack Lemmon. Several well known screen actors of the period undertook supporting roles including George Raft, Pat O’Brien, Edward G. Robinson and Joe E. Brown.
We ask for our usual charge of £3 per person to cover room hire and refreshment. I would be grateful if, say, three persons would volunteer to look after the "catering" arrangements.
