    Description

    The Seven Year Itch (20th Century Fox, 1955). Three Sheet (41" X 81").
    Ranking as one of the most iconic and memorable screen moments in all of cinema history, Marilyn Monroe stands over a subway grate, in her unforgettable white gown designed by Bill Travilla, and comments "Isn't it delicious?" as the air lifts her skirt. Tom Ewell can only stand there and watch and dream, as does the star-struck audience. Billy Wilder shot this scene multiple times to get it right, with a growing New York crowd watching, and all involved knowing it would be the key scene of the film. Unfortunately Monroe's husband, Joe DiMaggio, was not happy with the very public gawking at his wife. This poster has had some restoration to address fold wear, pinholes in the corners, small tears in the top border and at the join, a crease in the image, and some edge wear at the bottom. There are a few light stains at the bottom edge that are still visible, and the linen is trimmed to the edge of the poster. To own this large format image of Monroe at the height of her fame, will be a real prize for any serious fan. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
