Some Like It Hot
We're pretty sure that Marilyn Monroe was used to being the prettiest person in the room wherever she went. Then she got to the set of Some Like It Hot, where her co-stars included the beautiful (by his own account) Tony Curtis and the klutzy Jack Lemmon. Curtis and Lemmon spend most of the movie in dresses. (The two play male musicians who witness a gangland murder. In an effort to escape the mob, they join an all-female band, where they meet Monroe's character.) Curtis was already plenty pretty; with a little eye shadow and some blush, he was downright gorgeous. Watch as Monroe, Curtis and Lemmon go for laughs in Some Like It Hot. 11:55 p.m. Friday and Saturday. River Oaks Theatre, 2009 West Gray. For information, call 713-866-8881 or visit www.landmarktheatres.com. $10.
