SOME LIKE IT HOT (1959) Montage Photos


Pair of two vintage original 14 x 11” (36 x 28 cm.) photos, USA. slight marginal curling, just about fine. Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis, dir: Billy Wilder; United Artists.

Two unusual, large format photos, each with a montage, one of Tony Curtis, the other of Jack Lemmon, with multiple images of them in tuxedo and also in drag.

Billy Wilder’s SOME LIKE IT HOT is one of the great mid-Century comedies, one of Marilyn Monroe’s best movies—and one of the classic films featuring characters in drag (in this case, two musicians trying to evade murderous gangsters by posing as members of all female band,)  Benshoff and Griffin, p.93
