And there's Sugar Kane in Billy Wilder's classic comedy, Some Like It Hot. She sips bourbon to sooth a breaking heart. She's the singer with an all-girl band who's tired of always getting "the fuzzy end of the lollipop." She wants to marry a millionaire. What Sugar wants more than money or a diamond bracelet "worth its weight in gold" is true love. If Jessica Lange got an Oscar for Tootsie, Marilyn Monroe should have, at least, been an Oscar nominee for Some Like It Hot. She was a great screen comedienne.
You can see all four of those Marilyn Monroe movies on TCM. Thanks to Sittin' on a Backyard Fence for lettin' me be a part of the 2012 TCM Summer Under the Stars Blogathon.
