FILM TALK Episode #1: Some Like It Hot (1959) Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon, Marilyn Monroe – Championed by Morris Bright MBE

No drum roll, no big flourish, just the best films and the best in film conversation as we formally launch our brand new weekly classic film VLOG magazine, RABBIT & SNAIL’S FILM TALK. Quite simply, it’s all about the greatest films ever made.

Each week we’ll publish a new video reviewing and discussing a different classic film that will go on to our list of the 100 greatest films in cinema history, at least the greatest films in our opinion. The first to go on the list is Billy Wilder’s amazing 1959 comedy, Some Like It Hot starring Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon and Marilyn Monroe, championed by regular FILM TALK contributor, author, journalist and broadcaster, Morris Bright MBE.

Some Like It Hot tells the story of two musicians played by Curtis and Lemmon, who witness a vicious St Valentine’s Day gangster massacre. The comedy reaches new heights when, with the gangsters in hot pursuit, they take-off and hide out as saxophonist and bass player in an all-girl jazz band.

FILM TALK is all about us reviewing and appreciating the greatest films ever made. Each week one of the FILM TALK team puts forward another classic film to add to our list of the 100 greatest films ever made. Each episode takes an in-depth look at the film, providing a detailed critical review, while also delving into the film’s background, exploring how it was made and the filmmakers behind it, with a quick dip into fascinating trivia to help provide a rich appreciation of our chosen film.

FILM TALK is introduced by RABBIT & SNAIL FILMS’ director, Richard Edwards and each week his is joined by one of our regular contributors, including author, journalist and broadcaster Morris Bright MBE, The Hammer Runners, Phil Campbell and Brian Reynolds, who have worked in the industry since the late 1960s and film guru, historian and collector, Mark Priest, whose passion for the cinema knows no bounds.
