Customer Review

on 7 August 2009
This is my favourite marilyn monroe movie,it may not be laugh out loud funnier than "some like it hot" but the performance by monroe is more subtle .It is about a working writer(tom ewell) who ships his wife and son("only a little one ,hardly counts") off to the coast for summer while he stays in the heat of the city.When he arrives back at his apartment he discovers a beautiful young lady has moved into the apartment above.A lot of mishaps and misunderstandings ensue,i especially love the piano moments.Don`t want to spoil it ,so i won`t say anymore than to mention a great performance by tom ewell as the writer.The extras are, on disc one, a commentary by billy wilder biographer kevin lally,on disc two :"backstory:the seven year itch"(23:25),"legend of marilyn monroe"(48:23)(although it says on the tin 90mins),"marilyn:the final days"(112:28)and deleted scenes(3:21),which are really extended outtakes,a 30 second newsreel,restoration comparison and gallery.It is slightly disappointing that only the backstory tv episode deals with the movie itself ,a little talking heads featurette would have been nice .That said there is quite a bit on the discs so i suppose i shouldn`t complain.Well worth upgrading from the single disc.
