The Seven Year Itch was written by George Axelrod.
Richard Sherman roams restlessly around his empty apartment bemoaning the fact that his wife of seven years, and their son, have just walked out on him. He then suffers a head injury that affects his perspective. He now sees his marriage as wasted time and feels it necessary to exercise his libido as quickly as possible. His temptation leads him to the ‘delectable doll’ that lives in the apartment above him. However, morality and guilt make themselves known, and hilarity ensures. Many will remember the iconic scene that Marilyn Monroe created in the movie that was inspired by this classic play.
