Alta Loma, CA, United States, 2006/09/19 - "Some Like It Hot" by Tony Curtis depicts him with co-stars Jack Lemmon and Marilyn Monroe in character roles and Hotel Del Coronado in the background.
““Some Like It Hot” was one of my favorite movies, and one that I am most remembered for,” states Tony Curtis, who co-stars with Jack Lemmon and Marilyn Monroe in the classic comedy.
“In “Some Like It Hot” Jack Lemmon and I play musicians who cross-dress to join an all-girl band so we can hide out from the Mob after we witnessed a St. Valentine's Day Massacre.”
“In the band we meet up with Marilyn Monroe, and of course, the storyline dictates that Jack and I both have the hots for her.“
“Some Like It Hot” is considered one of the funniest movies ever was just recently re-released on DVD. There are lots of extras on the DVD such as the late Jack Lemmon offering remembrances, and a chat between myself and, movie reviewer, Leonard Maltin. There are also lots on Marilyn Monroe,” continues Curtis.
“Because of the movie’s popularity I have received many requests over the years to create an image based on the movie.”
“My latest release titled “Some Like It Hot” is a montage featuring Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon and myself in character with the Hotel Del Coronado in the background.”
“One of the first pieces was donated to the Second Chance Foundation for their recent benefit fundraiser at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas.”
“Creating this image brought back many memories of the movie and of my late friends, Jack Lemmon and Marilyn Monroe. As an artist I only hope that it also brings fond memories to fans of “Some Like It Hot”, concludes Tony Curtis.
