The definitive inside story of the much-loved and enduring film classic, from the only star left to tell us the full story
From the Back Cover
In early 1958 legendary director Billy Wilder offered Tony Curtis the chance to star in a new picture. It was to be called Some Like It Hot. It went on to become one of the best-loved films of all time.
Now, fifty years later, one of its leading 'ladies' tells what really went on during the making of 'the funniest movie of all time' (the American Film Institute).
Writing in his inimitable voice, Tony Curtis shares previously unrevealed secrets from the set. He speaks frankly about his working relationship with Jack Lemmon and Billy Wilder, as well as his a romance with Marilyn Monroe. Here too is the truth behind Monroe's erratic behaviour, which almost scuppered the production.
Featuring rarely seen photographs from his private collection and a wealth of first-hand anecdotes, this is an insider's account of the making of a Hollywood classic.

It DOES NOT have the screenplay, excerpts from the first draft or original promotional materials. Nor does it have the filmography.
What it does have is B&W photos from the film and behind the scenes along with the book text.
Considering the very high cost of this Kindle book and what you actually get, I've given it 2 stars. Can't comment on the book contents as I received a refund and removed it from my reader.
