Some Like It Hot | 1938
Nicky Nelson, a concession stand barker on the Atlantic City boardwalk, loses his stand despite having Gene Krupa and his band play to bring in crowds. Undaunted, Nicky approaches Stephen Hanratty, who owns a dance pavillion, to emcee Krupa's band at his place -- only to be refused. Nicky then tries but fails to convince up-and-coming singer Lily Racquel to let him manage her. But he writes a song for her that might prove to be their ticket to success.
