KL Studio Classics gives Wilder’s “Some Like it Hot” a wonderful 4K lineup - Jan. 18

Updated: Jun 8, 2022


KINO LORBER Studio Classics’ series will release Billy Wilder’s masterpiece comedy “Some Like it Hot” on 4K Ultra HD with HDR10 and Dolby Vision on January 18, 2022.

The quintessential madcap farce stars the marvelous Marilyn Monroe and her bosom companions Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon. When Chicago musicians Joe and Jerry accidentally witness a gangland shooting, they quickly board a southbound train to Florida, disguised as Josephine and Daphne, the two newest—and homeliest—members of an all-female jazz band.

Their cover is perfect…until a lovelorn singer falls for Josephine, an ancient playboy falls for Daphne, and a mob boss refuses to fall for their hoax! Well, nobody’s perfect.

Some Like It Hot won the 1960 Academy Award for Best Black-and-White Costume Design (Orry-Kelly) and received nominations for Best Actor (Lemmon), Director (Wilder), Adapted Screenplay (Wilder and Diamond), Black-and-White Cinematography (Charles Lang), and Black-and-White Art/Set Decoration (Ted Haworth and Edward G. Boyle).
