5.0 out of 5 stars Deliciously Delicate!, August 21, 2007
This review is from: The Seven Year Itch (DVD)
Oh baby, they just don't make um' like this anymore. How could they--without the gorgeous Monroe? The dialouge, wit, humour, acting, direction, the everything.

Tom Ewell has this blonde, big boobed, beautiful neighbor living upstairs, who happens to be Monroe, and his wife happens to be gone for the weekend. Ewell has air-conditioning and it happens to be bloody hot in New York, so hot- in fact, that Monroe needs to stick her panties in the freezer and begs Ewell to sit in his apartment to cool off. Oh sure, he lets her in. Wouldn't you?

So, his imagination runs away with him, does flips and somersaults, and creates scenarios, which never develop. Monroe is oblivious, just appreciating the kindness of a nice neighbor. There is a scene where he kisses her and says "Oh my, I am so soooory. This has never happened to me before!" And Monroe straitens her stunning ivory dress, runs her fingers through her hair, and confesses, "Oh, this happens to me all the time!"

"The Seven Year Itch" is a lovely, lush, laughable film. Nothing sexual happens. Only a simple kiss. A man in middle-life going through menopause. A man who comes to the realization that even though Monroe happens to be in his house, he still loves his wife.

My favorite scene: Ewell says, "No pretty girl would want me. I am old with a little pouch. No pretty girl would want me." Monroe disagrees--"How do you know what a pretty girl wants? She wants to be treated tender. She wants kindness. She wants to be loved." Before she leaves Ewell, Monroe kisses his cheek and says "Your simply delicate."

A Monroe Classic.
