Product Description

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

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).

5.0 out of 5 stars The growing height of Marilyn's career June 11 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Too bad Marilyn Monroe didn't have kids, to carry on the legacy maybe, because she was something. This movie sure proves it. I think this movie shows Marilyn acting more comortably in front of the screen and I think this is when she began to become a Hollywood superstar. Everyone wanted to be like her. I think this movie is really funny and entertaining and is worth a rent, but GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES {1953} IS MY VERY FAVE, THAT'S HER SECOND OR THIRD MAYJOR HIT, THAT ONE PARTICULAR SPARKED HER CAREER AS WELL AS THE SEVENYEARITCH. SEE IT, YOU WON'T BE DISAPOINTED!

5.0 out of 5 stars charming, funny and witty. a classic April 28 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
ah ha, yes the famous sub-way scene. i don't know if the male viewers of america know how much that scene upset Marilyn Monroe because that is what American men and woman thought of her after this film. The 7 year itch is about more than that sub-way scene, so let's drop the obsession with it please. that aside, this is an excellent movie, one of the best comedies ever. tom ewell is hysterical, as is marilyn. a must see. a true classic.

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Comedy!! March 5 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Not only can Marilyn Monroe act, but she is also a very funny lady as well. Quite an ensemble cast, here, with Tom Ewell, as the schizophrenic tenant who lives beneath Marilyn, and his fantasies about what it might be like to have an "affair" with the girl upstairs. Then when he learns that in this particular hot summer, that she doesn't wear underwear, well, his imagination takes off.
There are some great scenes, but many of them deal with the outrageous scenes which Ewell imagines, with one of the best being his playing the piano like Sergei Rachmaninoff, while Marilyn sits next to him on the piano bench, and when the real scene develops, we find he can only play "Chopsticks" and the real scene is so far removed from his imagined one.
He's a strange one, this man, and Marilyn plays well in this movie. It's unfortunate that she was so under-rated!!
A great comedy, and it's highly recommended!!

"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.
