Personally, I'm looking ahead, to Baz Luhrman's musical mash-up of  "Anna Karenina," " A Streetcar Named Desire" and "Some Like It Hot," where Blanche Dubrovnik, a member of Ina Rae Hutton's All-Lesbian Band, the Soviet Syncopators, chases after brother-in-law Stanley Karamazov and ultimately throws herself under the streetcar.

Soundtrack comes from Ina Rae, of course, Spike Jones and His City Slickers  and a big production number,  "Fools Russian In."
