An Evening with Marilyn Monroe: THE SEVEN YEAR ITCH (1955)

DIRECTED BY: Billy Wilder

STARRING: Marilyn Monroe, Tom Ewell, Evelyn Keyes, Sonny Tufts, Robert Strauss, Oscar Homolka



Co-presented by the Stamford Downtown Special Services District

Please join us for a ceremony and reception in Latham Park at 6:30 p.m., celebrating Seward Johnson’s “Forever Marilyn” sculpture in the park.


In the midst of a summer heat wave, New Yorker Richard Sherman (Tom Ewell) ships his wife, Helen, and their son off to Maine for vacation. Left alone back in Manhattan, Richard decides he has the opportunity to live a bachelor's life - to eat and drink what he wants and basically to enjoy life without his wife and son. He then encounters a gorgeous blonde model (Marilyn Monroe) who has moved into the apartment upstairs, and becomes immediately infatuated. While pondering infidelity, Richard dreams of his beautiful new neighbor -- but will his fantasies about her become a reality? THE SEVEN YEAR ITCH was based on a play with the same name by George Axelrod. The film, directed by Billy Wilder, contains one of the most iconic images of the 20th century – Marilyn Monroe standing on a subway grate as her white dress is blown upwards by a passing train.


“Timeless – The Works of Seward Johnson”, produced by Stamford Downtown Special Services District in partnership with The Sculpture Foundation features 36 sculptures by Seward Johnson that are on loan to the City of Stamford from The Sculpture Foundation. The extraordinary collection of Seward Johnson’s works with its unique and realistic life-sized characters will grace Stamford Downtown from June through August, 2018. Stamford is the fifth city in the world to be chosen as a site for the iconic, monumental, 26-foot-tall sculpture of Marilyn Monroe.
