Tired Old Queen at the Movies: Some Like It Hot

Steve Hayes serves up a fabulous review for gay pride: the laugh riot Some Like It Hot, one of your Head Trucker's favorites. It's a hoot and a holler from start to finish - if you've never seen it before, you just must. If you haven't seen it recently, go watch it again. The very last line in the movie is worth the price of admission all by itself.
In celebration of Gay Pride, here are Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis, and Marilyn Monroe heating up the hilarity in Billy Wilder's classic cross-dressing comedy SOME LIKE IT HOT (1959). Set during Prohibition in Chicago, two out-of-work musicians, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon, witness The St. Valentine's Day Massacre and have to go on the lamb. They end up taking refuge in drag in an all-girl band, whose lead singer is none other than Marilyn Monroe at her saucy and sexy best. The action is fast-paced, the double-entendres are flying, and the results are absolutely hilarious.

I know this is one of the great films of all time, and it certainly has its charms, but I always felt insulted as a gay man by the parody. No, I'm not generally that thin-skinned, but this film had that effect on me nonetheless.

I wonder why that is. I just think it's an outrageous hoot, probably penned by one of us.

`Just a mystery I guess...

A chacun son gout. I feel the same way about Elton John.
