Note from the classic movie gentleman:
This is one of the very first Marilyn films I have ever watched when growing-up. I thought it was hillarious and Marilyn, Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis has great chemistry together. The comedy timing with all of them and the doe eyed curvacious Marilyn aka Sugar was perfect!
