Some Like It Hot is a beloved part of our culture, voted the “Funniest Film of All Time” by the American Film Institute, but Tony was the first to tell the complete, uncensored story of its making, a behind-the-scenes saga of intrigue, humor, and romance.

 

A noted artist and raconteur, Tony Curtis paints word-portraits of the geniuses who made the film: director Billy Wilder and his co-writer I. A. L. Diamond; actor Jack Lemmon; and the cultural icon  Marilyn Monroe.
