How to Break up With Your Fiancee from, Some Like It Hot(1950).

Some Like It Hot(1950). When two Chicago musicians, Joe and Jerry, witness the the St. Valentine's Day massacre, they want to quickly get out of town and go into hiding.

The only job they can find is with an all-girl band heading to Florida.

They show up at the train station as two girls named.. Josephine and Daphne, the new saxophone and bass players. They become "best friends" with Sugar Kane Kowalczyk, who sings and plays the ukulele.

Joe, begins dating Sugar, while Jerry/Daphne is wooed by a millionaire, Osgood Fielding III.  One of the funnest scenes in the film, is when Jerry, comes up with a list of reasons why he and Osgood cannot get married..

Jerry: Oh no you don't! Osgood, I'm gonna level with you. We can't get married at all.

Osgood: Why not?

Jerry: Well, in the first place, I'm not a natural blonde.

Osgood: Doesn't matter.

Jerry: I smoke! I smoke all the time!

Osgood: I don't care.

Jerry: Well, I have a terrible past. For three years now, I've been living with a saxophone player.

Osgood: I forgive you.

Jerry: (tragically) I can never have children!

Osgood: We can adopt some.

Jerry: But you don't understand, Osgood! Ohh... (Jerry finally gives up and pulls off his wig) Jerry: (normal voice) I'm a man!

Osgood: (shrugs) Well, nobody's perfect!

Jerry looks on with disbelief as Osgood continues smiling with indifference.
