Video Clip #19: “Some Like It Hot”

In England, women were never allowed to perform on stage until after 1660. The roles of women were played by young men or boys. When we watch a female performance played by an adult male, we tend to find it comedic. In this 1959 film, we see two male musicians masquerading as female musicians in order to escape from the mob after witnessing a murder. This black-and-white film won numerous awards in many categories. It’s a highly entertaining comedy starring well-known actors, among which is the famous Marilyn Monroe. A classic in its own right! ~~LMMolina
