    Description

    The Seven Year Itch (20th Century Fox, 1955). Very Fine- on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Few scenes in movie history are as indelible as that of Marilyn Monroe trying valiantly to maintain her modesty as her white dress swirls up around her. That's just one of the memorable scenes from this classic film in which a well-meaning man (Tom Ewell) packs his wife and kids off for a summer vacation, vowing to himself that he'll behave while they're gone. That vow is tested to the limit when blonde bombshell Monroe moves into the apartment next door. The film premiered on June 1, 1955, Monroe's 29th birthday, and has remained a cherished part of cinematic history ever since. The one sheet continues to be extremely popular with collectors. Touchup has been applied to the folds, a couple of small tears and chips, and some ink stamp bleedthrough. There is airbrushing in the borders and the majority of the white background.


    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
