Genesis' #WomenInFilm2018 gets involved in the most uplifting film season of the year, BFI's Comedy Genius, to present you the golden era gem Some Like it Hot starring the blonde bombshell Marilyn Monroe screening from a shiny restoration!

After witnessing a Mafia murder, slick saxophone player Joe (Tony Curtis) and his long-suffering buddy, Jerry (Jack Lemmon), improvise a quick plan to escape from Chicago with their lives. Disguising themselves as women, they join an all-female jazz band and hop a train bound for sunny Florida. While Joe pretends to be a millionaire to win the band's sexy singer, Sugar (Marilyn Monroe), Jerry finds himself pursued by a real millionaire (Joe E. Brown) as things heat up and the mobsters close in.
