It’s time to celebrate the incandescent Marilyn Monroe, who left us exactly fifty years ago—far too early.
She has lived on through the movie magic that she created in many immortal roles.
August is the perfect time to see her in her totally steamy yet innocent role as “The Girl” –she’s the Marilyn who we know as the blond bombshell—the very one who delightedly stood over a cool air vent that blows her white dress high in the air. And who is on the scene but her nerdy neighbor, white-collar worker, played by Tom Ewell. He’s a family man, but his family is away at the seashore…and the weather…and Marilyn…is hot, hot, hot.
Director Billy Wilder knew exactly how to capture Monroe’s complicated charms, as we saw in another superb movie a few years later, “Some Like it Hot.” Hot, indeed.
Now, Cerrito Classics presents “Seven Year Itch” in all its glory and hilarity on the big screen. Don’t miss it!
The showing is on Thursday, August 9, at 7pm. All seats are $8. Getting to the theater early is always a good idea–for a choice of seating and to order freshly-made food and drinks. You are strongly advised to buy tickets in advance at the box office or online.
