"I have too many fantasies to be a housewife. I guess I am a fantasy." - Marilyn Monroe
Out of all the images that exist of Marilyn Monroe, this is perhaps the most iconic, from 9 September 1954. The Seven Year Itch director Billy Wilder created a media circus of hundreds to witness the famous 'skirt uplift' scene, despite filming happening during the early hours. Joe DiMaggio, it's been said, was not amused. The couple divorced just two months later.
