60th Anniversary Celebration! Voted the Top Comedy of All-Time by the American Film Institute, Billy Wilder’s classic farce finds Chicago-based musician buddies Joe (Tony Curtis) and Jerry (Jack Lemmon) on the run after witnessing a mob hit. Disguised as women, “Josephine” and “Daphne” join an all-female band that’s headed for a gig in Miami. Soon Joe/Josephine becomes enamored with the band’s singer Sugar Kane (Marilyn Monroe) while Jerry/Daphne becomes the object of desire for a daffy millionaire (Joe. E. Brown). Meanwhile, the Chicago mob just came to town.
