Synopsis: With his family away for their annual summer holiday, New Yorker Richard Sherman decides he has the opportunity to live a bachelor’s life – to eat and drink what he wants and basically to enjoy life without wife and son.
The beautiful but ditsy blond from the apartment above his catches his eye and they soon start spending time together. It’s all innocent though there is little doubt that Sherman is attracted to her. Any lust he may be feeling is played out in his own imagination however.
Review: Lately, I have been really been getting into the classics, not to mention some new favorite actors. I always had wondered what the Marilyn Monroe movies were like. Because I always did love her in Some Like it Hot. She’s not like today’s actresses, she’s not a stick, she looks so cute and like she has fun on screen. Not to mention she was a very beautiful actress.
The Seven Year Itch is a great romantic comedy where a man has sent his wife and son into the country while he works on his business over the summer. But after 7 years of marriage, he meets the new house sitter, played by Marilyn, and falls completely for her, causing a 7 year itch. He has also a wild imagination and just let’s it go with him thinking he’ll get caught, what if his wife is cheating on him, or what his life would be like if he was with Marilyn instead of his wife.
This is a very charming and lovable romantic comedy and will remain with that timeless image of Marilyn’s white dress blowing up in the air. She’s so adorable and anyone can easily become a fan of her’s when they see this movie. It’s a fun movie to watch and I highly recommend it.
