The classic Billy Wilder comedy, “Some Like It Hot,” starring Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon, filmed at the Hotel Del Coronado in Coronado, California, just across the San Diego Bay. The Victorian beach resort opened in 1888 and still goes strong today. The cast and crew made their way down from Los Angeles to film at the resort, where they also stayed as guests during the production. The same hotel appears in the films “K-9,” “My Blue Heaven,” “Wicked, Wicked,” “The Stunt Man” and many more. It has also appeared in such TV series as “Baywatch,” “Simon & Simon,” “Alfred Hitchcock Presents” and more.
