If I had access to a time machine I would set the date for Monday, Aug. 4, 1958. Location: MGM Studios in Culver City, Calif. That was when the shooting began for the historic, timeless and ever classic movie, “Some Like It Hot.”
There is director Billy Wilder always in perpetual motion, never still, pacing back and forth with the ever present cigarette perched between his thin lips. Jack Lemmon is patient, waiting for his cue. Tony Curtis is laughing about his next scene. And there is the radiant, stunning Marilyn Monroe.
