The movie “Some Like It Hot“ is considered one of the best classic comedy films of all times, with an enticing combination of Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon dressed in drag.

Legend has it that the Manhattan originated in New York City, sometime in the 1870s, mixed together in honor of hometown presidential candidate Samuel J. Tildenerde.
