Billy Wilder’s classic screwball comedy starring the unforgettable trio of Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon is back on the big screen in all its digital glory.
Curtis and Lemmon play a pair of musicians who accidentally witnesses the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre and disguise themselves as women to avoid the gangsters on their tail. Joining an all-girl band on their way to Florida, the duo (now called Josephine and Daphne) are mesmerised by the band’s singer, Sugar Kane (Monroe). As Josephine tries to win over the money-obsessed Sugar, Daphne is attracting the attentions of millionaire Osgood, and the gangsters are getting ever closer.
