Billy Wilder’s beloved comedy is about two jazz musicians (Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon) who find themselves on the run after they inadvertently witness a gangland murder. With no money and nowhere to hide, the two masquerade as members of an all-girl band, leading to a number of romantic complications when one falls for the band’s lead singer played by Marilyn Monroe in one of her most iconic roles.
