How Some Like it Hot came to be a classic.

Very entertaining telling of Tony Curtis' version of how this film classic came to be.

A voyeuristic romp for TCM fans

….of which I am one of the staunchest! I enjoyed it — I wondered how much was Tony Curtis’s actual memory and if perception had shifted in the interim with all the books and speculation and the public’s ongoing fascination with MM.
it is fun and the narrator sounds like him. Mr. Curtis didn’t have to pull his punches at this point and he didn’t. I love the line about Abe Lincoln and the seduction scene on the yacht. See, now you’ll have to read it!
