Some Like it Hot  was Monroe's most famous movie, giving her a place in history as one of Hollywood's greatest sex symbols. Monroe was not first choice for the movie, actress Mitzi Gaynor chosen for the lead role of "Sugar Kane" first, but director Billy Wilder offered Marilyn Monroe the role on hearing she was available.

However, the main stars of the film were Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon's cross-dressing characters. Rumour has it that in order to test if the duo could make for convincing women, they wore their drag outfits around Goldwyn studios, even going unnoticed as they fixed their make up in the female lavatories.

Black comedy Pulp Fiction is arguably one of Tarantino's greatest movie masterpieces. The much-celebreated cult film gave Samuel L. Jackson, John Travolta and Uma Thurman perhaps their most iconic on-screen looks and lines of their careers. Tarantino had originally toyed with the idea of playing Lance but decided to play Jimmy Dimmick so he could be at the camera during Mia Wallace's overdose scene. The infamous scene was shot with Travolta pulling the needle from Uma's chest, and then the film was run backwards.
