Witnesses to a mob killing musicians Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis join a girls' band whose lead singer is Marilyn Monroe.
It's a bit funny that the famous last line in this film is "Nobody's perfect." since it's a pretty much perfect film: the script, the actors, the direction, all in timeless black and white. Just one element wrong - an other director or a wrong actor and it might have fallen apart. The studio apparently wanted Bob Hope and Danny Kaye. Billy Wilder originally thought of Frank Sinatra in the Lemmon part. One can only wonder how that would have worked out. Marilyn Monroe was at her cutest and funniest, and Tony Curtis scores comedy gold pulling a Cary Grant as the millionaire. I just realised this is the only Curtis film I have. He must have done some other good films as well?
Watched with modern eyes, one can maybe ask why Monroe isn't mad at Curtis for lying to her. If the film had been made today, I'm sure there would have been an extra 15 minutes of them quarreling before she, of course, would forgive him. But it's not really necessary, the film never taking place in a realistic universe to begin with.
