Billy Wilder's, "Some Like it Hot" PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Billy Wilder's, This is the complete guide to Billy Wilder's masterpiece! Just before the cameras started rolling, producer David O Selznick famously told director Billy Wilder that his new picture was doomed, saying, 'You cannot combine comedy with murder." Wilder replied that he'd try anyway, and "Some Like It Hot" was eventually voted Best Comedy of the Century by the American Film Institute. A crossdressing, gender-bending, genre-busting, kinky crime caper, "Some Like it Hot" (1959) tells the story of two jazz musicians who dress in drag and go undercover in an all-girls' band to escape the Mob. With an ingenious screenplay by I.A.L. Diamond and Billy Wilder, and flawless performances by Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon and Marilyn Monroe, Some Like it Hot is comic perfection. This Special Edition includes: interviews with Billy Wilder, Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon and others- a complete facsimile of the screenplay with film stills from every scene- excerpts from the script's first draft- behind-the-scenes on-set color photos- original promotional materials and a wealth of supporting ephemera- annotated/illustrated by Billy Wilder filmography- and a DVD of this phenomenal movie.
