Original British Quad (30 X 40 Inches)
"Well, nobody's perfect!" Maybe not, but this classic comedy had the perfect last line from Joe E. Brown. The American Film Institute selected it as the greatest American comedy film of all time, and for good reason. Joe and Jerry (Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon) are a pair of hapless musicians who witness a mob hit and disguise themselves as women to hide their identities. Enroute to a gig in Florida as part of an all-girl orchestra, they meet the lead singer, Sugar Kane (Marilyn Monroe), and both fall in love with her. The arrival of mob boss Spats Columbo (George Raft) in Florida further complicates things. Directed by Billy Wilder, this was the top money-making comedy of 1959. The film won an Oscar for costume design (how appropriate!), and was nominated for five others.
