Based on a three-act play by the same name, it starred Marilyn Monroe and Tom Ewell. -Richard Sherman (Ewell) is a man plagued by the seven year itch, a malady which causes men to cheat on their wives. Through this, he meets his new upstairs neighbor, known as The Girl (Monroe). Hilarity and wild imaginations ensue, leading to Sherman's breakdown and reunion with his wife. Critical Response -The Seven Year Itch was received well by critics, although some were disappointed in its relation to the play. -Although the 50's were a time of change, the production team was not ready for certain aspects of the original show, thought to be too risque. -The people, however, loved the movie, having it produce the famous Marilyn Monroe.
