The Kerrigan family are a typical Aussie "battler" family and living right next to the airport never seemed to be a problem for them until the airport wants to expand - on to their land. Their initial reaction is to reject the plans and turn down the money, but it soon becomes obvious that the airport and Government authorities are going to get their way - one way or another. This is Dale Kerrigan's story of their battle with the airport to keep their beloved house, and defend an ordinary person's rights against wealthy organisations.

Some Like it Hot 14th June Rated PG
Some Like it Hot was made in 1959 by Billy Wilder, who scripted it in collaboration with I.A.L. Diamond, and it was an instant classic. The combination of a cross-dressing farce with a suspenseful story about witnesses to the St. Valentine`s Day Massacre on the run from gangsters is as funny today as ever it was, thanks to the hilarious performances of Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon as surprisingly convincing members of an all-girl orchestra - Curtis also does a great Cary Grant imitation. Joe E. Brown steals all his scenes as an eccentric millionaire, but the film belongs to Marilyn Monroe at her sweetest, funniest, and most delectable. A complete joy.
