Hotel Del Hosts Movie Celebration

Some Like It Hot, one of Hollywood’s most beloved comedies, celebrates its 50th Anniversary this year, and I can’t think of a better location than the Hotel del Coronado to hold a big shindig for this wonderful movie classic. After all, that’s where the film was shot – plus a more beautiful setting would be hard to find. Tony Curtis, who played Joe/Josephine, will be at the event and plans to sign copies of his new book, The Making of “Some Like It Hot”: My Memories of Marilyn Monroe and the Classic American Movie.

My own memories of the Hotel Del include attending its lavish 100th Birthday Party and spending my honeymoon there. I’m probably the only one who ever got lost at this respected establishment and needed rescue after being trapped on the roof! But that’s another story entirely.

The Hotel Del’s Some Like It Hot celebration is scheduled to take place in San Diego during the last weekend in September. You’ll also be able to hear Tony Curtis, a noted raconteur, talk about his book and his experiences as one of the film’s great stars on my Movie Addict Headquarters show on September 15th at 1 p.m. Pacific Time. Here’s the link:
