The Seven Year Itch

Billy Wilder's solid 1955 adaptation of a so-so stage comedy (by George Axelrod) created an iconic image of Marilyn Monroe cooling her overheated womanhood above a NYC subway gate, while wannabe adulterer Tom Ewell leers at her. ItÂ’s not her best collaboration with Wilder (that would be Some Like It Hot), but she shyly rules the picture, making a farce of male fantasies. (NR) BRIAN MILLER
