The film follows musicians Joe (Tony Curtis) and Jerry (Jack Lemmon) who disguise themselves as women, Josephine and Daphne, after witnessing a group of gangsters commit a massacre. Paired with Some Like It Hot is the short film Switch, which follows an affair between two women working as switchboard operators in Toronto in the 1940s. In film noir style, their story includes twists, turns, and murder.
