We wonder if Tony Curtis’ Joe and Jack Lemmon’s Jerry ever learned how to walk “like Jell-O on springs!”
The photo above was taken in 1959, probably while Curtis and Lemmon were on their way to film some of their scenes for the movie! “Some Like It Hot,” as we all know, was also topbilled by Marilyn Monroe and directed by Billy Wilder. The film was set in 1929, when the characters of Lemmon and Curtis had to disguise themselves as women in an attempt to run for their lives after accidentally witnessing the Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre . From Joe and Jerry the musicians, they became Josephine and Daphne of the all-female band Sweet Sue and her Society Syncopators – in which Monroe’s Sugar “Kane” Kowalczyk was vocalist and ukulele player!
“Some Like It Hot” went on to become one of the most famous films in history. In 2000, the film landed the #1 spot in the American Film Institute’s “100 Funniest American Movies of All Time” list.
On, and the “like Jello-O springs” line above? It’s a reference to Jerry’s dialogue after seeing the way Sugar Kane walked! Here’s a video clip; said scene starts around the 11-second mark!
