"Seven Year Itch at the Chinese"

24' high cutouts of Marilyn grace the front of the Chinese in 1955 during Billy Wilder's "Seven Year Itch" from 20th Century Fox. The photo from the Corbis Images collection is by Phillip Glendeau.


A glorious color view taken during "Seven Year Itch." The photo on Vintage Los Angeles is from, of course, the Richard Wojcik collection.  

Both views are now on the Grauman's Chinese Theatre street view timeline.
