Charles Lang: An original b/w press or still photograph of the American actress Marilyn Monroe (1926–1962) in her role as Sugar Kane in “Some Like it Hot” from 1959. Back with publication date (31 March 1959). Photo size 20.5×25.5 cm. Frame size 33×43 cm.

After witnessing a Mafia murder, slick saxophone player Joe (Tony Curtis) and his long-suffering buddy, Jerry (Jack Lemmon), improvise a quick plan to escape from Chicago with their lives. Disguising themselves as women, they join an all-female jazz band and hop on a train bound for sunny Florida.

On the train they meet the band's ukulele player, Sugar Kane (Marilyn Monroe). Joe and Jerry immediately become obsessed with Sugar and compete for her affection while maintaining their disguises. Sugar confides to Joe that she has sworn off male saxophone players, who have taken advantage of her in the past. She hopes to find a gentle, bespectacled millionaire in Florida. During the forbidden drinking and partying on the train, Josephine and Daphne become close friends with Sugar, and must struggle to remember that they are supposed to be girls and cannot make passes at her.
