For our last classic this season, we go back to comedy with Billy Wilder's gender-buster. Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis are on the run from the mob disguised as women - Josephine and Daphne (don't ask!). They board a train as part of an all-women band, whose singer and ukulele player (naturally) is Marilyn Monroe. The inevitable love triangle is further complicated by yet more disguises, and a real millionaire who decides to chat up Daphne…
Voted by the American Film Institute in 2000 as the best comedy film ever, this has to be a film to watch over and over. As Roger Ebert said "Wilder's 1959 comedy is one of the enduring treasures of the movies, a film of inspiration and meticulous craft".
Brilliant performances, wondrous comic timing and the greatest pay-off line ever written: this one's still red hot.
