Two musicians accidentally witness the St. Valentine’s Day massacre and are forced to disguise as women and join an all-girl band in order to flee the city. Billy Wilder’s brilliant, trailblazing sex comedy offers terrific gags, unforgettable performances (Lemmon, Curtis, Brown, etc.) and Marilyn Monroe at her lushest. A hilarious film with one of the finest last lines. Academy Award winner for Orry-Kelly’s costume design.
