Book News
The American Film Institute selected Billy Wilder's Some Like It Hot as America's Funniest Movie. Maslon (New York U. Tisch School of the Arts) relates the evolution of the 1960 comedy starring Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon, and Tony Curtis, from its roots in an obscure 1951 German film to its setting in Prohibition- era Chicago. The oversize volume includes previously unpublished images, production anecdotes, script excerpts, further reading, and notes on its casting, a previously undiscovered TV show pilot based on the movie, and its legacy as a drag comedy.
