Norma Jeane Mortensen Baker (June 1, 1926 – August 5, 1962), professionally recognized as Marilyn Monroe, was an American actress, model, and singer, who became a major sex symbol, starring in a number of commercially successful motion pictures during the 1950s and early 1960s.

After spending much of her childhood in foster homes, Monroe began a career as a model, which led to a film contract in 1946 with Twentieth Century-Fox.

1962 – Marilyn Monroe – ‘Something’s Got To Give’

Something’s Got to Give is an unfinished 1962 American feature film, directed by George Cukor and starring Marilyn Monroe, Dean Martin and Cyd Charisse. A remake of My Favorite Wife (1940), a screwball comedy starring Cary Grant and Irene Dunne, it was Monroe’s last work; from the beginning its production was disrupted by her personal troubles, and after her death on August 5, 1962 the film was abandoned.

Most of its completed footage remained unseen for many years.

Upon her return from New York, Monroe decided to give the film a publicity boost by doing something no major Hollywood actress had done before. In the scene where Ellen is swimming at night, she calls playfully up to Nick’s bedroom window and invites him to join her. Nick tells her to get out of the pool and then realizes she is nude. A body stocking was made for her, but Monroe took it off and swam around in only a flesh-colored bikini bottom.

The set was closed to all but necessary crew. However, Monroe had asked photographers to come in, including William
Woodfield, and after filming was completed, Monroe was photographed in the bikini bottom, and without it.

Had Something’s Got To Give been completed and released as planned, it would have been the first Hollywood motion picture release of the sound era to feature a mainstream star in the nude.

DAMN!

“Seven year itch” originally referred to scabies

Via: Tywkdbi

The seven-year itch that [Thoreau] had in mind was an infection by a mite which lays its eggs in burrows under the skin. Its medical name is scabies, whose name comes appropriately from Latin scabere, toscratch.

It was once extremely common in all kinds of situations and historical American sources are full of names for it, among them Indiana itch, Illinois itch, Jackson itch, Cuban itch, prairie itch, camp itch, army itch, ship itch, jail itch, mattress itch, swamp itch, winter itch, barley itch and grain itch.

It was very hard to treat before effective insecticides came along…

Because it was so hard to get rid of, a story grew up in North America that those who got the itch were stuck with it for the next seven years.

The phrase was sometimes later reinterpreted to mean that it would recur after seven years, or would reappear every year for seven years.

Found at World Wide Words, where the discussion continues as to how and why the phrase was adapted as the title of the famous movie.
