While his wife and son travel to Maine to escape a summer heat wave, middle-aged New York executive Richard Sherman (Tom Ewell) becomes infatuated with his new neighbor (Marilyn Monroe). As he dreams about a life with his new acquaintance, Richard begins to wonder if he will eventually act on his impulses – or remain a faithful spouse. Based on the hit play of the same name, The Seven Year Itch is most known for its famous scene of white dress clad Monroe cooling herself off while standing on a subway grate.
