No woman in history, other than Cleopatra has held the attention of men like Marilyn Monroe did .
The UK EP represents a groundbreaking comedy that transformed the pre-60's taboos of cross-dressing, into side-splitting hilarity as Tony Curtis & Jack Lemmon morph themselves into, not so good looking female musicians Daphne & Josephine. Trying to escape the MOB, as they unwittingly witness a gang murder.
They escape Chicago by train to Miami.. the story unfold at a Miami beach hotel, both Curtis & Lemmon fall for the gorgeous "Sugar Kane" (Marilyn Monroe) who in turn falls for Tony Curtis as transforms himself into fake millionaire yacht owner and heir to Shell Oil.
Whilst the hapless Jack Lemmon is relentlessly pursued by a real aged millionaire Jack E. Brown. With gangster Spats and his henchmen being tipped off the fleeing pair were hiding out in Miami. One of the funniest comedies of all time unravels...
The mesmerizing Marilyn Monroe titillating with her every shimmer and purr... Marilyn beside her unparalleled beauty, possessed the most exquisite voice with her delivery nothing less than spontaneously "uplifting" the lower regions...
It was a great Movie, Marilyn was spectacular in her beauty and guile; Tony Curtis & Jack Lemmon outrageous in their disguise and utterly incompetent schemes of love-rivalry, whilst simultaneous trying to stay alive.
Captured here in 1959 by UK Decca on a rare and colourful 7" EP with a still from the movie embellishing the back cover.. we consider this EP top-drawer Movie-vinyl memorabilia and a London collector's essential..
Great fun and very elusive in nice condition.
Two flawless tri-center labels, vinyl is real clean a couple of wispy retrieve blemishes (light fingernail brushes) most like a trembling hand after hearing Marilyn's beckoning vocal; plays, as you can hear, super-clean. Cover back and front are near flaw-free, mild crease top right corner, mild rub wear center of spine. <br />
This July 1959 British press is a magnificent tribute to the world's most beautiful woman and one of the finest Hollywood movie's of all time.. and of course a personal favourite of mine.
