By 1955, Monroe had become a huge craze. “The Seven Year Itch”, one of her most successful films, just came out. During the release, 20th Century-Fox Dynamo will report that Monroe’s “charming personality” has “brought her to more publicity than any foreign queen has ever received in the American press.” However, the actress did not confirm that she did it alone. In a television interview that same year, Monroe reflected on some of the major influences on her career:
“[A] who contributed a lot. I think when John Huston wanted me to be in ‘Asphalt Jungle’, and I think when Billy Wilder wanted me to be in ‘Seven Year Itch’, I thought that was very important. And also working with my trainer Natasha Lytess, she helped me a lot from day one. And I also got a lot out of taking classes with Michael Chekhov. “
Although Monroe is still not a huge star when she meets most of the people named, she seems to have dazzled them. The most important, Natasha Lytess is said to have developed a fascination with her talent, although the exact nature of their relationship remains a mystery. Similarly, although Monroe had only known Michael Chehkov, her Methodist acting teacher, for a few short years (from 1951 to his death in 1955), Chehkov’s biography revealed that he helped her through her rise to fame.
