Billy Wilder’s classic rom-com is a hoot from start to finish, following Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon on the run when they flee Chicago after witnessing a Mafia hit.

The duo disguise themselves as women to join a jazz band, heading out to Florida where they encounter Marilyn Monroe’s blonde bombshell, all while the mob remains hot on their tail.

The final gag sees Lemmon’s Daphne receive a marriage proposal from Joe E. Brown’s Osgood Fielding, causing Daphne to reveal her true identity. Not that Osgood cares in the slightest, because he still wants to marry her anyway.
