The Ticonderoga Historical Society will host its last free movie night of 2019 on Friday, October 4 at 7 p.m. at the Hancock House, 6 Moses Circle, Ticonderoga. The featured film will be “Some Like It Hot,” marking the 60th anniversary of the classic comedy starring Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis.
Directed by Billy Wilder, the plot centers on two jazz musicians who witness a gangland shooting in 1929 and are forced to dress in drag in order to escape. Joining an all-girl traveling band, the comedy around misrepresented identity and Prohibition is considered among the top comedic films ever produced. In addition to the three primary stars, the film features hilarious performances by veteran character actors Joe E. Brown, George Raft and Pat O’Brien.
The film received six Academy Award nominations, including Best Actor, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay. It was voted as the top comedy film by the American Film Institute.
