Some Like It Hot

Trivia: Not a mistake, just a fact. According to I.A.L. Diamond,Tony Curtis' "Josephine" voice was dubbed by another actor, as Curtis couldn't speak high enough.

Trivia: Monroe wanted the film to be shot in colour (her contract stipulated that all her films were to be in colour), but Wilder convinced her to let it be shot in black and white when costume tests revealed that the makeup that Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon wore gave their faces a green tinge.

Trivia: Marilyn Monroe was pregnant throughout the filming, which is why she was so nervous. Because she was noticeably heavier for this film, many posters had her head superimposed of another model's body.

Continuity mistake: When Tony Curtis & Marilyn are on their way to the yacht, Marilyn has what appears to be a clear 'bra-band' across the back of her gown - this band appears and disappears until they are finally settled in the room.
