Some Like it Hot
On Turner Classic Movies. No adverts! (I'd say "commercials" but I like the Brit term better. Besides, I had an English GF for a few years and she had monstrous D-cup titties )
This is a 1959 screwball comedy black and white movie (technically it's grayscale). Starring Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon, and Marilyn Monroe. Directed by Billy Wilder, who said the film was the biggest success he had ever been associated with.
Curtis and Lemmon play two band musicians on the run from Chicago mobsters. The two dress as women to join an all-women's band that is on a concert tour. Here's where Marilyn comes in: she's a singer in the band and does a couple of numbers during the movie. Curtis's character falls for her and he switches back and forth between being a woman and impersonates a rich oil magnate to try and impress her.
He also claims that an old busted relationship rendered him unable to feel love or passion. This is his gimmick to try and get Marilyn to fall for him -- and it works. Scenes of her trying to warm him up by getting on top of him and kissing him are real hot despite Curtis's non-reaction (at first).
Monroe is exceptionally pretty and sexy in this movie. In a couple scenes she wears braless dresses with tops so sheer your eyeballs will strain out of their sockets trying to see something that isn't really there. Later in the film she plops down on a bed and wriggles her bare legs around so sexily you'll be reaching for your pants.
Monroe won a Golden Globe for her performance. She actually could act and wasn't just eye candy (although we'll take just the eye candy). Her comedic genius is very apparent in this performance. It was her third to last movie, as she died August 5, 1962 at age 36 in what some people still to this day consider mysterious circumstances. Conjecture all you want about that one.
In 2000, the American Film Institute (AFI) named Some Like it Hot the greatest American comedy film of all time. Any film fan should have this one on their to-see list.
