Some Like It Hot (1959)

Director: Billy Wilder
Cast: Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis and Marilyn Monroe

This hilarious gender-bender about two musicians who don wigs and heels to escape the mob is genius Wilder at his crackling best. The laughs never let up until the credits roll — and beyond, considering the legend that surrounds the film's funny final line.
