Description

    The Seven Year Itch (20th Century Fox, 1955). Poster (40" X 60") Style Y.
    The biggest box office hit of 1955, this film became an instant classic due to the star power of blonde bombshell Marilyn Monroe, some of the wittiest screen dialogue by director Billy Wilder and George Axelrod, and an outstanding cast that included Tom Ewell, Evelyn Keyes, and Sonny Tufts. Along with several memorable scenes of Ewell daydreaming about his romantic adventures with "The Girl" (Monroe), this film features one of the most iconic cinematic moments in history -- Monroe standing over a subway grate. In her sensational white dress, Monroe was ogled during the long shooting sequence by a huge crowd of on-lookers, including her furious husband, Joe Dimaggio. This rare, and stunning poster, which is the only known copy, features this indelible image, along with a smaller bubble bath scene. The poster had staple holes in the field, small holes at the top, two corner chips, and small tears and creases throughout. There was .25" paper loss along the right edge. It has had excellent and professional restoration, to bring it to a wonderful and bright appearance. This rare beauty will be as popular with collectors today as Monroe was at the height of her career. Very Good/Fine on Paper.
