Abstract:

In 1958 director Billy Wilder offered Tony Curtis the chance to star in the film called SOME LIKE IT HOT, which became one of the best-loved films of all time. Now, fifty years later, one of its leading 'ladies' reveals what REALLY went on during the making of 'the funniest movie of all time' (the American Film Institute). Writing in his inimitable voice, Tony Curtis speaks frankly about his working relationship with Jack Lemmon and Billy Wilder, as well as his romance with Marilyn Monroe. Here too is the truth behind Monroe's erratic behaviour, which almost scuppered the production. Featuring rarely seen photographs from his private collection and a wealth of first-hand anecdotes, this is an insider's account of the making of a Hollywood classic.
