Bring your sweetheart and celebrate Valentine’s Day with Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon. “Some Like It Hot” screens at the Soper Reese Theatre on Tuesday, February 12, at 1:00 and 6:00 pm. Entry to the film is by donation.
This 1959 romantic comedy, directed by John Huston and Billy Wilder, is a spry, quick-witted farce that never drags. Showcasing Wilder’s inspired and meticulous genius, the plot is about nothing but sex, and yet pretends it’s about crime and greed. The screenplay shows Shakespearean influence in the way it cuts between high and low comedy, between the heroes and the clowns, and lines are delivered with perfect timing. The best treat is experiencing Monroe’s consummate portrayal of the innocent beauty, seemingly unaware of her sex appeal.
The movie is sponsored by H&R Block, Lakeport. Rated G. Run time is 2 hours. The Soper Reese Theatre is located at 275 S. Main St., Lakeport, 707-263-0577, soperreesetheatre.com.
