To be sure, Tony Curtis thinks he looks like Cary Grant in his sailor uniform but he really looks more like Charles Nelson Reilly, and Marilyn is visibly, obviously trashed out of her gourd for the entire picture, but hey, it was fun in the sun at the Hotel Del Coronado in the Prohibition era, and even the mob on their collective tails can't put a dent in the fun.
Okay, in all seriousness, the new release of Some Like It Hot on DVD is something any classic film collector will want to snap up, and while there are few extras on the disc, Curtis spends a half hour with Leonard Maltin discussing the movie, Marilyn, the dresses, and plenty more. The most surprising thing: 40 years later, Curtis doesn't really look a day older.
Hot to trot.
