    Some like it hot, was my favorite, and Tony did a wonderful job. He was a lucky man to act with Marilyn Monroe! And who could forget the Boston Strangler? Thanks Tony for all your talent you gave us, and the movies you made will be forever seen by “New Fans”. May you rest in peace, and say hi to the cast of Some Like it Hot!
