An original rare 1966 German theatrical re-release poster for Seven Year Itch, an American 1955 Billy Wilder comedy starring screen sex symbol Marilyn Monroe and Tom Ewell. In the midst of a summer heat wave, New Yorker Richard Sherman (Tom Ewell) ships his wife, Helen (Evelyn Keyes), and their son off to Maine for vacation. Left alone to work back in Manhattan, Richard encounters a gorgeous blonde model (Marilyn Monroe) who has moved into the apartment upstairs, and becomes immediately infatuated.
Re-release posters are often less valuable than the first release issues, but this design by Dorothea Fischer-Nosbisch is an exception. It has become a sought after and highly collectable movie poster, showing Monroe in the iconic white dress seen in the classic Marilyn air-vent shot.
