Synopsis: Two struggling musicians - Joe (Tony Curtis) and Jerry (Jack Lemmon) witness the St. Valentine's Day Massacre in Chicago in 1929, and need to find a way out of the city before the mob finds them. The only paying job they can find is in an all-girl band heading to Miami for an engagement at the Seminole Ritz (filmed at the Hotel Del Coronado in Coronado, CA.) Calling themselves Josephine and Daphne they board the train and on the trip both fall for "Sugar Kane" (Marilyn Monroe), the bands sexy Polish-American vocalist and ukelele player.

Brown) falls for Jerry in his Daphne guise.
