Marilyn Monroe: Tiger Dress from "The Seven Year Itch"
Just when I thought the Franklin Mint was finished doing new Marilyn Monroe dolls based on her movie costumes, bam...here comes the Tiger Dress from “The Seven Year Itch.”
Naturally, I had to compare it to the actual Marilyn from the movie. For the costume, jewelry, and shoes, the Mint scores a home run.
For the hairstyle...not so much. It looks like someone made a half-hearted attempt to recreate the flapper-style hairdo that Monroe sported for this brief scene, but just couldn’t pull it off. And yet...I still bought it (note: the doll ended up on ebay; the dress stayed). Here are a few more photos to see. Note: the cigarette prop is something that I added; it is not included by The Franklin Mint.
