The Seven Year Itch is a 1955 film based on a play written by George Axelrod. Co-written and directed by Billy Wilder, this film starred actor Tom Ewell and one of the 20th century's most famous sex symbols, model, actress and singer Marylin Monroe. It also contains one of 20th century's most iconic scenes: Marylin Monroe standing on a subway grate while her signature white dress is blown up by a passing train. A term used by psychologists to describe a declining interest in a monogamous relationship after seven years of marriage, The Seven Year Itch is about a middle-aged man named Richard Sherman. While his wife and son are out of town on summer vacation, Sherman, who is facing a mid-life crisis, chooses to live as a bachelor and enjoy the time he has to himself. While enjoying this time, he meets a beautiful blonde actress and former model who lives in the apartment upstairs and becomes attracted to her. Richard Sherman and the beautiful blonde spend time together and the encounters are innocent even though his fantasies about her are only played out in his mind.
