THE SEVEN YEAR ITCH
March 30, 2012  | By David Bianculli  | 1 comment

TCM, 8:00 p.m. ET

 

This 1955 Marilyn Monroe movie is iconic, and most famous, for giving the actress a white dress to wear and a subway grate to stand above. But there’s so much more to this clever comedy, starting with Tom Ewell’s hapless, hopeless portrayal of a married man pining for, and fantasizing about, a neighboring free spirit. Ewell’s character is a savvy ad man – a prototypical Don Draper – and his fantasies are imaginative as only a Madison Avenue guy’s can be. And Monroe, as both fantasy woman and giddy young New Yorker, is perfect.

Marilyn Monroe is one of those actresses I adore a lot. How I wish that I really seen her when she was young.
