Some like it hot by Billy Wilder( Visual )
14 editions published between 1959 and 2012 in English and Italian and held by 2,320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Chicago 1929. Gamaschen-Colombo, Anführer einer Gangsterbande, hat soeben einen Verräter "beseitigt". Dumm für die beiden arbeitslosen Musiker Joe und Jerry, dass sie unfreiwillig dem Massaker zusehen mussten. Um den rücksichtslosen Gangstern zu entkommen, verkleiden sie sich als Frauen und heuern bei einer Mädchenkapelle an. Diese ist gerade auf dem Weg ins sonnige Florida. Dass sich die beiden "Damen" als solche recht wohl fühlen, dafür sorgt die unmittelbare Nähe von Sugar. Sie ist die alles betörende Ukulelespielerin der Band. Verständlich, dass es nicht allzu lange dauert, bis sich eine der beiden gehörig in Sugar verliebt. Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis und Jack Lemmon in einer Billy-Wilder-Komödie, die bis heute in ihrer Mischung aus rasantem Witz, Sarkasmus und Einfallsreichtum unerreicht bleibt. Ein wahrer Klassiker.

Ace in the hole by Billy Wilder( Visual )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 856 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Ace in the Hole, in this case, is Leo Minosa, trapped in a cliff dwelling near Albuquerque, N.M. The publicity from his situation could build a winning hand for several people: Chuck Tatum, manipulative veteran newsman; Lorraine, his bored wife who dreams of city lights; Sheriff Gus Kretzer, boosting his re-election campaign; and young Herbie, a reporter who wants to make the big leagues. In 1951, there was no 24-hour cable news, and the Albuquerque paper was not on the Internet. The modern media age, however, was dawning. A veritable carnival sets up at the rescue scene, which may be one of the sources of the term "media circus."
