    Description

    The Seven Year Itch (20th Century Fox, 1955). British Double Crown (20" X 30").
    Marilyn Monroe fans, this is a poster worth waiting for! Offered for only the second time at Heritage, it's the exceedingly rare British double crown format from that sizzling Marilyn Monroe comedy, The Seven Year Itch. Billy Wilder directed this amusing tale about the temptations of a middle-aged married man. His troubles begin when he sends his family away for the summer and his overactive imagination goes wild when a delightfully voluptuous blonde (Monroe) moves in upstairs. The poster depicts the starlet in her famous "billowing dress" pose, which was apparently a bit too risqué for the Brits. Her skirt has a bit of extra length to cover the sliver of exposed underwear seen on American posters, thereby giving the image a more graceful, yet still tantalizing, effect. It shows mild creasing, slight edge and fold wear, and a few small paper lifts in the outer image area. Two of these paper lifts are in Monroe's skirt, and one is in the right side background with a minor bit of touchup. Folded, Very Fine.


    Estimate: $2,500 - $5,000.
