Style and Cinematography

Some Like It Hot is a hilarious farce where men dress as women in order to hide from the mob. The historical setting helps make the story seem realistic. During prohibition, a primary business of the mob was to sell alcohol, no matter what they had to steal or who they had to kill.

The film is shot in black and white, which makes it even more interesting. The filming gives it a somewhat timeless quality. Viewers are amused to see how little some things have changed over the years. Even though many believe that cross-dressing is only common in modern times, they see it portrayed in past decades.
