Tuesday, July 9, 7:30PM
1959. USA. Dir: Billy Wilder. With Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon. 120 min.

In what AFI has ranked as the funniest film ever made, two down-on-their-luck musicians (played by Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon) accidently witness a murder and go on the run from the mob. What better place to hide than in an all-female jazz band? There they meet Sugar, played by Monroe. As the music starts thumping and the gin starts pouring, the cross-dressing buddies figure out that maybe’s they’ve bit off more than they can chew…

With special introduction by Ed Herrmann, actor and film historian.
