A bit of context for the film: This is a movie about two jazz musicians who witness a gang murder and decide to dress like women to hide from the mob. For a 60 year-old film, it's representation of gender roles and fluidity is not as dated as you might expect. You'll also discover much of the inspiration for White Chicks! It's got a great performance by Marilyn Monroe. You've probably heard of her, but some of you might not have seen any of her films. It was released in 1959. By that time, most films were shot in color. They started filming Some Like it Hot in color, but realized that the men looked terrible in their drag makeup. When they switched to black and white, the men looked much better. Marilyn Monroe's contract stipulated that she would only be in color films, but she saw some black and white footage and felt like she still looked alright. This film is a classic comedy, but you might not know it by the opening section which includes a recreation of the "Valentine's Day Massacre" in Chicago (an actual event). The director felt it was important to raise the stakes for the characters in a genuine way, so the audience accepts their motivation to dress up as women. The high stakes get the audience invested in the comedic premise.
