Billy Wilder's Some Like It Hot

Alison Castle, Editor Taschen $200 (386p) ISBN 978-3-8228-6056-4
""It was one of the easiest pictures to make including the difficulties with Marilyn Monroe,"" says Billy Wilder of his legendary comedy in Billy Wilder's Some Like It Hot, edited by Alison Castle and with interviews by Dan Auiler. This large format, suede-covered tribute replete with new interviews with all the major stars (including Jack Lemmon), behind-the-scenes dish, working drafts of the screenplay and hundreds of photos, film stills and other illustrations will dazzle fans of 1950s and '60s Hollywood. Inset into the back cover is an added gem: a facsimile of Monroe's copy of the script, bound like the original and including handwritten notes (when her character, Sugar, is supposed to be startled, Monroe wrote ""freeze like a bunny"" as a stage direction). Collectors will rejoice.
