Synopsis

Double bill featuring two classic Marilyn Monroe movies. In 'Some Like it Hot' (1959), in February 1929, unemployed musicians Joe (Tony Curtis) and Jerry (Jack Lemmon) go on the run after witnessing the St Valentine's Day Massacre. Pursued by gangsters, the duo are forced to disguise themselves as women and join Sweet Sue's all-girl band on the next train for Florida. Joe is attracted to Sugar Kane (Monroe), the band's singer, while Jerry finds himself pursued enthusiastically by millionaire Osgood E. Fielding III (Joe E. Brown). Comic complications ensue. In 'The Misfits' (1961), a sensitive young woman (Monroe), in Reno to obtain a divorce, takes up with three cowboy drifters (Clark Gable, Montgomery Clift and Eli Wallach), in town for the rodeo, and a long-time divorcee (Thelma Ritter). She and Gable fall in love but their relationship is compromised when the men reveal their plan to catch mustangs and sell them as dog food.
