2. That Dress, That Grate

Other than the Andy Warhol pop art diptych, the most iconic image of Marilyn is the publicity shot for The Seven Year Itch movie. Although the actual movie scene is shot in a Hollywood studio, it is the gimmick shot that is so famous. Hubby at the time, Joe DiMaggio might have hated the picture and the 5,000 people looking on while the picture was taken, but who can forget that image of the white pleated dress billowing about in the air stream from a subway grate? You can visit the world’s most famous subway grate at 590 Lexington Avenue, New York.
