Synopsis: Two men hide from the mafia in an all girls band after they witness a murder, and find it hard to keep their cover as women when they meet Sugar Kane played by Marilyn Monroe. Co-Starring Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon
Directed by Billy Wilder.
Interesting Fact: Marilyn, at first, didn’t want to play this legendary role because she felt Sugar kane was just another dumb blonde but later agreed to do so because she and Arther Miller we trying to have a baby. The money from this movie was to be used to raise the little baby. Hm, I don’t know what’s more interesting, the synopsis of the film or the actress’ private life.
