It’s got transvestites, two men living happily ever after and one of the most famous last lines of any film (‘Well, nobody’s perfect’). Billy Wilder’s 1959 comedy is still perfect all these years later. Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis star as musicians who flee the mob in Chicago disguised as women in an all-girl band. Curtis romances Sugar (Marilyn Monroe), the ukulele player, while pretending to be a millionaire. Lemmon is wined and dined by the genuine article, a dopey oil magnate. Monroe drove everyone nuts making the film, always late and often forgetting lines. But as Wilder put it: ‘If I wanted someone to be on time, to know the lines perfectly, I’ve got an old aunt in Vienna who’s going to be there at five in the morning and never miss a word. But who wants to see her?’

It was really good and I laughed so hard. Seeing Marilyn is a comedy was weird at first but she did a good job as well.
