summer in the city

another mini-movie-review: the seven year itch, a 1950's classic starring marilyn monroe and tom ewell. funny, if dated. it is based on a play, and clearly shows those roots. i'm a little surprised there hasn't been a modern remake, since the film suffered from the censorship of the hayes office.

one totally trivial thing that popped out at me was when ewell was reading the list of ingredients on a soft drink and it had corn syrup instead of sugar. i had always been under the impression that the prevalence of corn syrup was a more recent phenomena.
