SEVEN YEAR ITCH, THE (1955) Marilyn Monroe – 1


Vintage original 8 x 10″ (20 x 25 cm.) black-and-white single weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, USA. Marilyn Monroe, Tom Ewell, Evelyn Keyes, Sonny Tufts, dir: Billy Wilder; Twentieth Century Fox. Though the New York City location shoot in which Monroe stood atop a subway vent is perhaps the most famous film shoot of all time, the rest of this wonderful comedy which had run on Broadway for three years prior was filmed on the 20th Century Fox lot in West Los Angeles, CA.

When a business man’s wife and son go off to camp for a summer break, he becomes enamored with the young woman who is subletting the apartment over him, resulting in a variety of entertaining predicaments, some real and some fantasy.

In her robe, Monroe as the girl appeals to Richard Sherman played by Tom Ewell in the last scene as they bid goodbye and he runs off to collect his wife and son. Photo is coded 910 / 78X. The film was in production between Fall 1954 and Spring 1955 and released June 3, 1955. This is amongst Marilyn Monroe’s finest work. There are two creases at the top left corner and a light horizontal crease across the still about a quarter way down from the top, VERY GOOD.
