Curtis and Lemmon, on the run after witnessing the St. Valentine's massacre, masquerade in drag as members of an all-girl band. A satiric mix of slapstick and screwball comedy, this film is a tribute to American naivete and, for a mainstream film made in the fifties, exceptionally open in its treatment of androgyny. Curtis, with the image of a glamour drag queen, retains his heterosexual orientation but becomes more sympathetic, sincere and loving as a direct result of his experience. Lemmon, a campy transvestite, comes to totally identify with his role as a woman which produces one of the great final lines in screen comedy. Wilder's film shows the influence of Howard Hawks' comedies, most notably Scarface and I Was a Male War Bride with Curtis recalling Cary Grant in screwball comedies. Wilder plays with the motif of the sexually aggressive female and shy male

How far will a man go to climb the corporate ladder? C.C. 'Bud' Baxter, a lowly insurance clerk, has a trump card: his apartment. He "loans" it out to married company executives for secret trysts.

One day he asks out one of the elevator girls, Miss Kubelik, but she stands him up because of a crisis in her relationship with the big boss, Mr. Sheldrake.
