Editorial Reviews

It's a steamy summer in New York City and this scandalous, sexy comedy heats things up even more! A married man (Tom Ewell), whose wife and son are away for the summer, has his fidelity put to the test when a seductive starlet (Marilyn Monroe) moves in upstairs. Keeping his marriage vows in the face of her flirtations proves tough when challenged by the notorious "seven year itch." Faced with this provocative problem, he's victim to an outrageous mating dance filled with hilarious comedy!

This is the ultimate Monroe film. The one where she stands over a subway grating on a hot summer night to feel the rush of cool air from the trains passing beneath---the rush of air blowing the skirt of her sexy white halter dress up around her. But there's a movie that goes with this legendary image and it's a classic. Based on the adult Broadway play, "Itch" was watered down for the screen and stars Tom Ewell as the frustrated married man and Monroe as the Girl Upstairs. One hot New York summer, a man sends his wife and small son away for the summer---as all New York men do this time of the year according to Ewells' narration. He's left alone in their apartment to struggle with his vices---cigarettes and booze---when all of a sudden the Girl moves in sub-letting the apartment upstairs. She's a TV model and commercial actress and delightfully portrayed by Monroe. The homely and dumpy Ewell begins having steamy sex fantasies visualizing himself as a powerful lover irrestible to women. Monroe wants to be neighborly so she keeps inviting herself down to his flat frustrating the hopelessly timid Ewell. She doesn't realize her effect on him but he's got an air condtioner and it's hot upstairs. She's completely guileless. Monroe is perfect as the Girl and Ewell personifies the Everyman confronted with temptation when left to his own devices. Monroe is breathtaking in Technicolor and her performance speaks volumes about her comic potential. The subway grating scene caps her legend as a sex symbol but when you watch her performance here you see she was so much more than that.

Format: VHS Tape
"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?

I picked this up because I'm a huge Billy Wilder fan and I've never seen the film. It's fantastic! Beautiful HD transfer. Wonderful humor from the times that still feels relevant and a big "stick it" to the Hays Code.

The best part about this though is the special features. Commentary, picture-in-picture history lesson on the Hays Code, multiple featurettes. It's a great release!

Format: DVD
I found this film to be very funny and it was a delight to find the jokes age very well even to this day. Although because of censorship the film has been severely watered down from the actual play upon which it is based, I still found it thoroughly funny and enjoyable watching Tom Euell's character try to resist the great temptation of cheating on his wife who is away for the holidays. Marilyn Monroe was very funny in her role and given that she was going through a tough time in real life makes it even a greater achievement to perform at the high levels that she does in this great comedy. Although she is remembered as a bimbo femme fatale her acting talents should not be overlooked as I thought she was brilliant here and even when she played her small but memorable role in "All About Eve" I was very impressed at just how good an actress she was. Unfortunately, this film was also responsible for her divorce from Joe DiMaggio shortly after.

Another great surprise was the quality of this dvd version; the bonus features has a good backstory documentary on the making of the film but more importantly, the picture and sound quality is very good indeed. There are very few picture imperfections and the sound quality is very good.

If you are looking for an entertaining comedy featuring Marilyn at her comedic best this is the dvd to get; a 53-year old comedy that still entertains today. Recommended.
