Seven Year Itch

We've had a fair amount of time off here at ComedyandPolitics, but we're glad to be on the verge of getting back to our regular posting routine. Today's Sunday Afternoon Classics clip is from The Seven Year Itch, starring Marilyn Monroe, although she's not in the clip we're posting below. No, what we're posting is a scene about a problem that this blog is very familiar with: the problem of animal magnetism. Tom Ewell is simply so attractive to women that they can't stay away. They are drawn to him for reasons they don't understand, which as we know firsthand is a tough way to live.

This scene is reminiscent of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, another movie about a middle-aged man who lives in a fantasy world. Maybe we'll post something from that fine film next week. Until then, enjoy.
