Some Like It Hot: Collector's Edition

This raucous and ribald 1959 comedy, directed and co-written by Billy Wilder, emerges from one of the great Hollywood scripts — full of laugh-out-loud quotable lines, crisp pacing, and Wilder's precise tone and timing, which slip so fluidly between farce and romance and action. Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon, and Marilyn Monroe star in the best movie ever made about two guys who try not to get killed while simultaneously trying to get laid. MGM/Sony's Some Like It Hot: Collector's Edition easily supercedes the 2001 Special Edition. Image quality, transfer, and supplements are all significantly improved. The best extras are two new "making-of" featurettes with contributions from Lemmon, Curtis, Wilder, and more. Double standard keep-case.
