Product Description

Product Description

The Seven Year Itch

Amazon.ca

A married man, left alone during a hot summer, fantasizes madly about the impossibly gorgeous woman living in the upstairs apartment. When the woman is Marilyn Monroe, such fantasies are the stuff of epics, and The Seven Year Itch is a memorable laugh machine. Tom Ewell, repeating his role from George Axelrod's Broadway hit, plays the itchy protagonist, whose vivid imagination gets the better of him. When Monroe finally comes downstairs and becomes friends (confiding, among other things, that she keeps her undies in the icebox in this hot weather), imagination meets reality in a merciless attack on the male libido. Ewell's crack timing is matched by Monroe's zesty comic flair, and the scene in which her white dress is blown skyward by a passing subway train has entered the encyclopedia of great movie images. Director Billy Wilder adapted the play with Axelrod; if the film is not one of Wilder's signature works (Some Like It Hot and The Apartment would soon follow), it is nevertheless a smoothly crafted comedy. --Robert Horton --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Nobody should die without seeing this masterpiece comedy at least 1 time.
There is no doubt that this film was influential to many other great comedy films. Ideas like the main character thinking out loud and narrating the movie was used in Ferris Bueller. Ideas like using the main characters fantasies for a laugh was used in the movie A christmas story. Ofcourse this films discussion of sexual tension between males and females has been used many times in movies like American Pie. Ofcourse by todays standards The seven year itch is a classy film compared to films like American Pie. The Seven year itch did it all and influenced some of the greatest comedies of my generation(80's to present).

DVD FEATURES: The Seven year itch has awesome DVD features. The AMC backstory explains how Tom Ewell was picked as the starring role, how the censors almost ruined the movie, and Joe Dimmagios reaction to his wife Marilyn Monroes controversial subway scene. Also included is 2 deleted scenes, restoration comparisons and previews for other Marilyn films...

Marilyn Monroe will forever and always be remembered for the iconic image she created by standing over a New York subway grate on a hot summer night, her pleated white dress billowing up around her hips like the giant wings of a great white butterfly.
Unfortunately, the image of this scene that actually made it into the film only shows Monroe from the knees down. Apparently the censors not only ate chunks out of the best dialog in the script, but also took pieces of the most vivid iconic iimagery ever imagined to appear on the silver screen!
This film is terribly dated in a 1950's way, and the plot of the original Broadway play from which the screenplay was written was too racy to make the transition to the big screen without a major overhauling of the more interesting scenes. Still, it's a funny film with several great moments.
Despite the heavy-handed censoring, what we're left with is a cute film with Marvelous Marilyn at her absolute best in terms of magical beauty and comedic flair.
Tom Ewell was born to play the role of the "everyman" who sparks a summertime romance with the girl of his dreams,
"the girl upstairs" as she's known in the film. And who else but Marilyn Monroe could play the role of "the girl", a woman who's so fabulous, she doesn't even need a name?
More people have seen the famous still photos of Monroe in that white dress than have ever seen this movie... and that in itself speaks volumes about the enduring magic of Marilyn.
It's a cute film. Enjoy it on a hot summer night with a bag of potato chips and a bottle of champagne. As Marilyn herself would say, "How elegant!"
MMmmmmarvelous Marilyn!

"The Seven Year Itch" is a wonderful film that opens up with the typical Manhattan family-or rather several of them being sent off to summer vacations while the husbands stay at home to "play" once their wives are gone. The overlying dialogue, provided by a narrator, gives the film instant appeal and is strikingly different than any other film I've ever seen. The dialogue in this film is very fun and the main character (played by Tom Ewell) has absolutely hilarious fantasies where he imagines himself in all sorts of incredible situations. One of these fantasies, my favorite in fact, involves Rachmaninoff.
Ewell's awkwardness and assuredness that he knows how to woo women is hilarious and strikes a chord in all men's hearts. He definitely plays to an older crowd-his ideas of dating and romance are wonderfully dated. One gripe I have of the film is that they show us the picture that Ewell discovers of his upstairs' guest (played by Monroe). Why do they show us the picture? The picture would have been better if they had left it up to our imagination.
Marilyn Monroe is loveable in this film, though one can get tired of her naïve character. One has to see this film, if only to catch the now famous subway scene involving Monroe and her skirt. The team who worked on the film did a magnificent job. The DVD is excellent and the extra features are definitely worth a look. "The Seven Year Itch" is a very funny comedy that manages to appeal to modern audiences. I highly recommend it.

"Chapter 6-the Brubaker-Steichel theory of the sporadic infidelity pattern of the married male, or the Seven Year Itch."
Having sent his wife Helen and son Ricky to Maine to avoid the scorching July Manhattan summer, Richard Sherman, "keymaster" of a pocket edition publisher, stays behind to work, promising his wife to abstain from drinking and smoking. "Some husbands think just because their wives are away for the summer, they can run wild." However, the appearance of a young blonde renting his upstairs neighbours' apartment turns his life topsy-turvy, turning him into a bundle of nerves.
Sherman approves the covers of the pulp books: "Soup up the title a little, get yourself a cheerful and interesting cover. It's a question of imagination, and Mr. Sherman has a lot of it," says the narrator. To quote his wife and as a promoting film technology gag, "lately, you've been imagining in Cinemascope and Stereophonic sound." From his imagination, including a parody of the beach scene in From Here To Eternity, we learn that he doesn't feel he's good-looking or charismatic. It's his time with The Girl that changes him. His imagination ranges from the humorous, ridiculous, even paranoid. And he reveals his thoughts in soliloquys, which at times resemble trains-of-thought or even his subconscious.
The Girl turns out to be a typical blonde, but fun-loving, friendly, with simple tastes, understanding, trusting, and as it turns out, compassionate as seen from her sympathy for the creature of the black lagoon: "He wasn't really all bad. I think he just craved a little affection, you know. A sense of being wanted and needed." Oh, and she's definitely not a Rachmaninoff girl.
My take on the skirt scene?
