Matty Zimmerman: Marilyn Monroe as The Girl at "The Seven Year Itch" movie, 1954

Marilyn Monroe poses over the updraft of a New York subway grating while in character for the filming of The Seven Year Itch in Manhattan on September 9, 1954. This photograph was taken at midnight, with about fifteen-hundred newsmen and fans pro photographers and snapshot amateurs turning out on Lexington Avenue at 52nd Street, in front of the Trans-Lux Theater. Monroe's husband, Joe DiMaggio, witnessed the scene and was enraged with jealousy by the gawkers. That night, the couple engaged in a heated argument, which became physical; Marilyn Monroe filed for divorce three weeks later. The former Norma Jean Baker modeled and starred in 28 movies grossing $200 million. Sensual and seductive, but with an air of innocence, Monroe became one of the world's most adored sex symbols. She died alone by suicide, at age 36 in her Hollywood bungalow.
