Adolph Deutsch's Some Like It Hot
4-Apr-2010 - él/Cherry Red Records has released a classic, Billy Wilder's Some Like It Hot, a milestone of film comedy. In a story of increasingly wild absurdity, it follows the antics of two idiot musicians (Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon) who, after witnessing the St Valentine's Day Massacre, struggle to escape the gangsters by dressing up in drag and joining an all-girl band (a band fronted by Marilyn Monroe in arguably her finest screen performance). Comic complications aplenty ensue when Tony Curtis - now a pouting girlie strives to express his lust for Marilyn, while Jack Lemmon equally high-voiced and simpering -is being pursued by an amorous Joe E Brown, who has one of the funniest -and most radical -final punch-lines in screen comedy. The expanded edition comprises; the original 1959 jazz soundtrack by Adolph Deutsch, with all of Marilyn's songs from the film, supplemented, for the first time, with the Marilyn Monroe non-album single Some Like It Hot, jazz guitarist Barney Kessel's album of themes from the film and three vocal takes by Jack Lemmon.
