seven year itch

Finally found the interest to watch a Marilyn Monroe flick and much like the Audrey Hepburn movies I’ve seen, I can’t say I follow the obsession. Maybe if I was a girl growing up in the 50s I’d come to idolize Monroe like the female characters in Mad Men, envying the hourglass figure, pouty lips and the sexual personality.

The film is about the sudden lust men get for other women in their seventh year of marriage. I’m surprised I haven’t done some research on whether there’s any valid support for infidelity in the seventh year. I’m sure there’s some study out there that looks into it.

Anyways, I won’t rule out watching other Monroe films, but I am at present, not very impressed. The 50s fanatics of Marilyn Monroe fans though, will probably love this since the most iconic image of Monroe came from this film.
