Summary: John and his friend Ford are a couple of musicians that witness a mob hit on Valentines Day and need to get out of Chicago quick. Sadly the only way out is in a dress with an all girls band. John thinks the gig will not only get him out of hot water, but land him the lead singer, who is looking for a sexy millionaire…he really should know better.
Please Read Authors Notes:
A) This is a shameless steal of Billy Wilder’s Some Like it Hot, with a McShep twist. I’m sorry, couldn’t resist. I laughed so hard at the idea of John in a dress, I had to do it: forgive me please. No money is being made from this only a few laughs if I’m lucky. Oh, just in case, the original actors for the film were Tony Curtis (John will be playing that role) Jack Lemmon (Ford will take this one), George Raft, (Kolya will be playing this role) and Marylyn Monroe who will remain as Sugar.
B) Plus, I stick pretty close to the original script as possible, I did however cut some minor scenes or shortened them, while only straying in sections until the beach scene in Florida…then it’s a slightly whole new ballgame.
C) Also, for those that may not recall history, Prohibition was a time where alcohol was illegal to make, purchase or consume…didn’t last very long.
D) One more thing: I’m ditching racism and making the world color blind as it should be and I’m making Canada even more open minded way before it’s time…yeah Canada.
Warnings: No real mobsters or musical instruments were hurt in the making of this story. Also, mild Het.
