Chief Tahachee[edit]

"and guest stars Chief Tahachee" - is there a source for this? he is not credited on imdb.com and i can not recall any scene in the film conaining him

The name Michael Logan links to the wrong Michael Logan.

There are two Some Like It Hot entries now...Some Like It Hot and Some Like it Hot.

The all-capitlized version is how it's done at imdb.com -- Zoe

The article lists the title song on the soundtrack, but I just finished watching the film and do not recall hearing it, though I'd been looking out for it. When in the film is it used?

This article says:

It has been reported that Monroe was pregnant during the filming of this movie, but there is no record of her ever having children or a miscarriage.

but the Marilyn Monroe entry contains this:

She married Arthur Miller in a civil ceremony on June 29, 1956, then in a Jewish ceremony 2 days later. When they returned from England after she wrapped The Prince and the Showgirl, they learned she was pregnant. Sadly, she suffered from endometriosis; the pregnancy was ectopic and had to be aborted to save her life. A second pregnancy ended in miscarriage.

Which article is correct?

erm, I think the last sentence proves what is being said in this article, this 1959 pregnancy being the second mentioned...?Dollvalley 14:04, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

Who are the "two struggling musicians" ? I guess one of them is Jack Lemmon. Jay 10:10, 5 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Yes that's right, the two stars are cast as the struggling musicians. One is Jack Lemmon, the other Tony Curtis. Master Thief Garrett 06:46, 24 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Image[edit]

I removed the first image because it's better to have an original release image than a re-release... at least, that's the trend for most of the movies and it makes sense. However, I can't tell when those older looking ones were released and which should be here? Are both of them original from 1959? Or... are they reproduction? In any case, I figured I'd pose the question here. gren グレン 07:29, 5 April 2006 (UTC)

Popular culture[edit]

I was expecting such a section but didn't find it. One example that could be used is from "independence day", when Julius Levinson (Judd Hirsch) arranges a prayer:

  • Albert Nimzicki: I'm not Jewish.
  • Julius Levinson: Well, nobody's perfect.

Would anyone like to add such a section? Thanks Kvsh5 (talk) 22:19, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

Disappointing article[edit]

I came here because IMDb trivia is usually the exact opposite of Wikipedia: non-reliable, full of opinion, non-neutral point of views, weasels and peacocks; you name it, IMDb has it. But this article fared no better. I was really hoping to get an inside scoop on the problematic Marilyn during production, but the production section is essentially a non-bulleted list of unsourced events that parallels what I read on IMDb. – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 06:57, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

goodbye charlie[edit]

Please correct me if I am mistaken, but, I think that the phrase spoken by Spats as he directed the slaughter of the opposites was directed at Toothpick Charlie, hence the comment "Goodbye Charlie" has come into common use for a situation from which there appears to no relief.

A famous origin buried.

I googled "goodbye charlie" and saw only a movie with that title. I did not find any reference to "Some like it hot"

Curtesy (talk) 02:15, 24 May 2011 (UTC)curtesy

I just discovered I was wrong. Others have found the connection on Google. Perhaps this comment would be better used in the "goodbye charlie" entry in wikipedia.

Critical reception[edit]

The article says of the film's critical reception, "Some Like it Hot received widespread critical acclaim. Rotten Tomatoes reports a score of 98% out of 100, with an average score of 8.9 out of 10. Roger Ebert says ..."

Rotten Tomatoes and Roger Ebert are what critics today are saying, as it is now unquestioningly regarded as a great film. But the view of most major papers and magazines at the times were very negative, and the film made some "Worst Ten" lists. That info should be included in the section.

Yes, that sounds interesting! You got sources? Put it all in!--JakobvS (talk) 22:50, 3 December 2012 (UTC)

Monroe dress[edit]

The current article is too timid, with no mention at all of Monroe's barely-there dress!

  • Some Like it Hot—Just Not in Kansas
March 29th, 2011 | Author: Rachel Chambers
Talk about attention-grabbing fashion. When Some Like It Hot was released on this day in 1959, the Orry-Kelly costumes offended so many puritan moviegoers that it prompted a statewide ban in Kansas and an “adult entertainment” restriction in Memphis, Tennessee. The reason? The film’s plot is centered around the taboo of two men cross-dressing, and star Marilyn Monroe wears a dress that is so revealing that it stops just short of granting the actress her first nude scene.
