Original 20th Century-Fox Six Sheet Poster (exact dimensions 74x75) for the Billy Wilder romantic comedy, THE SEVEN YEAR ITCH (1955) starring Marilyn Monroe and Tom Ewell. This humorous look at the problems of a middle-aged, married man is arguably one of the funniest sex farces ever made. Left alone in New York City all summer while his wife and son are vacationing in Maine, Ewell meets the dishy Monroe and the fun begins. Of course, the film is famous for the scene of Monroe standing over the subway grate, but throughout the film the comic timing of Ewell and Monroe is flawless. The poster depicts the famous scene where Marilyn Monroe's dress is being blown upwards by the draft from the subway grate. Very few film posters reflect the most memorable scene from film, let alone such a watershed image in film history. Ewell watches from the sidelines, helplessly hoping. Indeed, Ewell won the Golden Globe for Best Actor and Billy Wilder won the Outstanding Directorial Achievement award from the Directors Guild of America. This original six sheet poster is linen-backed and is a stellar example.
