She was an absolute star! Some Like It Hot is by far the best film Monroe was a major part of, in my opinion.
Two musicians, Joe and Jerry (Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon) inadvertently witness the Valentine's Day Massacre mob murder.
But he can use Osgood Fielding's yacht if Jerry -- as Daphne -- will keep Osgood dancing. The pace gets even giddier when the Chicago mob arrives in Miami for a convention. Who can`t love this film.
