12. Jack Lemmon, Some Like It Hot
This 1959 classic featuring the likes of Marilyn Monroe and Tony Curtis has its ensemble cast pose as an all-girl band, and member, Jack Lemmon, made an Oscar nominated performance. Lemmon spent most of the flick in a dress and heels, and lost the Academy Award to Charelton Heston’s macho parade in Ben-Hur.
