Maybe "nobody's perfect," as one character in this film classic masterpiece says. but some films are perfect, and Some Like It Hot is for sure. In Chicago, during the Prohibition era, two womanizing musicians, Joe and Jerry (Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon), unintentionally witness the St. Valentine's Day Massacre. In order to escape the wrath of gangland chief Spats Colombo (George Raft), the boys, get in drag, and join an all-women band on its way by train to Florida. They compete for the attention of the lead singer, Sugar Kane (Marilyn Monroe), a much-disappointed songstress who warbles "I'm Through with Love" but remains vulnerable to yet another untrustworthy saxophone player.

Heralds were made from the 1910s to the 1960s. Theaters would order heralds by the thousands (they usually cost around $3 per thousand!). They would then hire people to stand on busy street corners and pass them out to all who walked by. Since the vast majority of people looked at the herald for a moment and then threw it away, it is not surprising that not many heralds survive. In Europe many heralds were simply printed on a two sided piece of paper. One side was printed with graphics (often colorful) and artwork from the film and the back side could be blank or in many cases would have information about the film and/or where or when it was playing. Most American heralds were on a single sheet of paper that was folded in half, creating four small pages. The front of the herald usually has just the title of the movie and images of the stars (like a small poster) and the two middle pages usually have a lot of information about the movie along with more images (and ...
