Seven Year Itch review Product Description



Seven Year Itch movie was released Apr 20, 2004 by the 20th Century Fox studio. Standard Screen; Additional Footage; Bio/Filmographies; Soundtrack English; Soundtrack French; English Subtitles

It's possible that the legendary scene in which Marilyn Monroe's dress is blown skyward while she stands on a subway grating now dwarfs Billy Wilder's adaptation of George Axelrod's hit stage comedy in the same way that the 50-foot billboard of the scene bestrode Times Square in 1955.   ...See Full Description

"It makes me feel goose-pimply all over!"
"The Seven Year Itch" is a delightful, sophisticated and witty farce, using to the fullest extent the mordant humor of director Billy Wilder on the subject of sex. The 'seven year itch' refers to the urge to be unfaithful after seven years of matrimony, with a desire to satisfy one's sexual urges ('itches'). It was adapted from a Broadway play of the same name by George Axelrod, with Tom Ewell reprising his Broadway role. It stars Ewell as Richard Sherman, a middle-aged New York City book publisher who remains in Manhattan while his wife and son go off to the country on vacation. Once alone, he's consumed with sexual fantasies about various women from his past as well as the eye-popping model/actress (Marilyn Monroe), who's just moved into the apartment above. Hoping for some action, he invites his neighbor to dinner, but the combination of his amusingly nervous bumbling and her belief in the innocence of his intentions almost guarantees that nothing will probably happen. Despite his guiltlessness, he begins to imagine that his fantasies are being broadcast nationwide, with his wife part of an eager audience. In his parody of film romance, Wilder hilariously skewers several, including "From Here to Eternity" and "Brief Encounter" Although censors excised the play's adultery theme, Ewell brilliantly manages the tricky feat of making a man seem comically guilty despite having done nothing, and Monroe as the iconic 'girl' deftly parodies her screen image. The entertaining film is best known for the definitive performance of the radiant Marilyn Monroe with the little girl's giggly voice (her 23rd film)-basically portraying herself as a blonde bombshell, and known in the film simply as The Girl. When asked why the heroine didn't have a name, Axelrod said, "The truth of the matter is that I could never think of a name for her that seemed exactly right, that really fit the girl I had in mind." The film's promotional tease photographs packaged her as the sexually-endowed girl next door-an ideal fantasy figure. In the film, one indeed wonders whether Marilyn Monroe's character is an actual person or rather the living embodiment of the urban executive's wild imagination. There is no more potent image in American cinema than Marilyn, her white halter dress billowing in the breeze of a Manhattan subway grate. She is luminous in this lusty 1950s time capsule. Director Wilder bent the censorship code until it nearly snapped, his script surging with canoe paddles, milk bottles, undies in the icebox and the siren call of Rachmaninoff. [filmfactsman}.

Parody of conventional Hollywood romances
Seven Year Itch movie This hilarious and lusty comedy from the 1950s, directed by Billy Wilder, is filled with outrageous puns, gags and parody. It is based on the Axelrod's huge Broadway hit of a married man's summer affair with a stunning blonde while his wife and son are away on vacation. However, the adultery theme was sanitized for the big screen and nothing explicitly happens between the two main characters - all is left to the viewer's imagination. Marilyn wears some of her most memorable movie costums, including the white halter neck dress which blows over the subway vent in one of the legendary scenes from the movie. 'Seven Year Itch' is truly a classic and it is one of my all time favorite movies.
