THE SEVEN YEAR ITCH

Dir. Billy Wilder (USA: 1955), 105 min. Marilyn Monroe stars as The Girl in the 1955 film, The Seven Year Itch. Tom Ewell stars as Richard Sherman. In typical Manhattan fashion, Tom Ewell’s family goes away for the summer. Tom stays back in the city and enjoys the bachelor lifestyle while his family is away traveling. When a new Girl (Monroe) moves in upstairs his temptations get the better of him.

This classic 1955 movie features one of the most iconic images of the 20th century, the famous scene of Marilyn Monroe standing over a New York City subway grate with her dress billowing in the breeze. This iconic image was forever captured in the history of American popular culture.
