Whether it’s espionage or romance, movie characters lead us to identify with the effort to hide something. This classic comedy with Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis who witness a mob hit, then elude their pursuers disguised as women in an all-girl band–including Marilyn Monroe in a memorable comic performance. The film is introduced by Mark Ethan Toporek, who also leads a post-screening discussion. He is a member of the Actors’ Studio, who has appeared in films including The Secret Lives of Dentists, The Confession, and Lesser Prophets. He has been presenting the Film Series at the Queens Museum since 1998, and at the 92Y since 2003.
