PLAYS

I LOVE the movie, "The Seven Year Itch"! That is such a great classic, in my opinion. I bet the play is really good, but without Marilyn, hmmm...not the same.

Though much of the first 50 pages of the play matches the events of the film, it was the last 20 pages that shocked me. He has a one-night stand with Girl. One of the many reasons why I loved the film was because he didn't cross that line and the film stayed light, funny, silly.

Re: PLAYS

It was very silly and i think both Tom Ewell(who played the role in the play as well) and Marilyn Monroe were brilliant in it!

I think my favorite YA book of May was FLY BY NIGHT by Hardinge.
