More famous as a comedy than Some Like It Hot? I guess it could be argued that The Apartment is more famous because it won an Aademy Award, but 'Hot' is a lot funnier. I like The Aprtment a lot also, but I think it's somewhat dated. I don't think 'Hot' is. (Any movie that has the Valentine Day's Massacre in it can't be too OT.) Mark
