Double Feature with SOME LIKE IT HOT

Tony Curtis, one of the last of the great Hollywood icons passed away at the end of September and we're taking a moment to remember him with two of his top-notch roles. Each of these films highlights a different side of Curtis. Join the Brattle in raising a glass to Tony this week!

(1957) dir Alexander Mackendrick w/Tony Curtis, Burt Lancaster [96 min]
The utterly acerbic SWEET SMELL OF SUCCESS features Tony in a dramatic turn as the protégé to Burt Lancaster's J.J. Hunsecker. Hunsecker is the most feared gossip columnist in New York City and wields his power with hard-hearted efficiency. Curtis is Sidney Falco, an unscrupulous publicist whose corrupt morals make him a perfect pawn for Hunsecker. This is one of those films where everything just gels effortlessly - from the direction to the cinematography to the acting, screenplay and musical score. Always a treat on the big screen!

(1958) dir Billy Wilder w/Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon, Marilyn Monroe [120 min]
Curtis plays the smooth operator to Jack Lemmon's nervous nelly in Billy Wilder's hilarious SOME LIKE IT HOT. When two jazz musicians witness a gangland murder, they must flee the city at the first opportunity of course, if that opportunity entails dressing up in women's clothing and bunking down with an all-girl band led by the vivacious Marilyn Monroe, so be it. During the climactic scenes, Curtis busts out an absurd Cary Grant impersonation that must be seen to be believed!
