Bombshell on the Box – Marilyn alert!
SOME LIKE IT HOT (ITV1, New Year’s Day, 12.30pm)
Marilyn Monroe, the queen of all the movie bombshells, oozes sensuality while giving one of her finest performances in this comedy masterpiece by Billy Wilder. Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis star as two hapless jazz musicians who inadvertently witness the St Valentine’s Day Massacre and have to hot-foot it out of Chicago or else their guts will be garters for hoodlum Spats Columbo. The only safe means of escape is with a Florida-bound all-girl band whose singer is the all-woman Sugar Kane (Marilyn)… Boop-boop-de-doop!
