Movie The Seven Year Itch (1955)

This is the first movie I've watched starring Marilyn Monroe.

By now I've also seen There's No Business Like Show Business (1954) and Some Like It Hot (1959).

Richard Sherman and The Girl

But considering she's been in several movies, many of which have appeared on Netflix, I've hardly seen any (three movies over six years).

In any case, I absolutely didn't remember how the movie ended and I definitely liked how it ended.

Instant Comments:
1:Lol, funny introduction.

The Girl (Marilyn Monroe)
1,2:Lol this Sherman fellow. "Not me, not me" "No smoking." "No drinking." But he's real tempted. Lol and the paddle.
1:Haha, enemies on the battlefield, nude, all brothers.
1,2:Haha, "Can you press the button again?"
1:Ah, he's been married seven years.

Richard Sherman (Tommy Ewell)
1:Haha "dictaphone," that word came up yesterday in dance class.
1:Lol four slaps.
2:Ha. That imaginary nurse story.
1:His wife is 31.
1:Lol, "Hello, Mother?"

1,2:Haha, when it's hot like this I keep my undies in the icebox.
1:Haha "I pushed my big toe up the faucet."
1:Haha the plumber.
1:He's 38 turning 39.
1:She's 22. 2:Just a day before yesterday she was 21.

2:Haha. Her responses to the "classical music" is funny. She has no appreciation to it, putting more focus on the potato chips and champagne, lol.
2:Mentions the portrait of Dorian Gray, references novel The Picture of Dorian Gray.
2:Oh, I didn't realize that's why he was looking in the book.

Richard imagines his wife Helen (Evelyn Keyes) on a hayride with Tom MacKenzie (Sonny Tufts)
1:The title comes in at the hour.
1:For the second time... oh I know now, the kid that says "Mommy mommy" reminds me of the kid from "I Love Lucy." That kid would occasionally say "Mommy mommy."
2:References "Summertime": "Summertime, and the livin' is easy | Fish are jumpin' and the cotton is high"
2:Fires eight rounds into the door, doesn't reload. Fires again seven rounds before opening.

2:cont: Pausing at the right frame confirms that it's a six-barrel revolver. Of course, he's just letting his imagination go wild.[He later even says "five times in the back and twice in the belly"]
2:Gregory Peck.
1:Lol, "Maybe it's Marilyn Monroe."

1:Haha, Sherman's imagination.
1:Love how the music turns on.
