Some Like It Hot—Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis, directed by Billy Wilder—A couple of musicians witness the Valentines Day murder in Chicago and try to escape to Florida but joining an all-girl orchestra. Marilyn Monroe’s best movie and one of the funniest ever. Black and white.
Weekend at Bernie’s—Jonathan Silverman, Andrew McCarthy, directed by Ted Kotcheff—This movie, while enjoyed by many, is consistently underrated. It’s got a great script, great actors and great direction. Perfectly paced. Laugh out loud funny. What more do you want?
Duck Soup—Groucho, Chico & Harpo, directed by Leo McCarey—This the one with the war and the famous mirror with scene. Black and white.
Bringing Up Baby—Cary Grant, Katherine Hepburn, directed by Howard Hawks—The classic screwball comedy from the thirties. One of the best ever. It’s senseless to describe it. Just watch it. Black and white.
