Since the film version of THE SEVEN YEAR ITCH was made during the 1950s, the production came under the watchful eyes of the censors at the Hayes office, who required that numerous changes be made to both the subject matter and dialogue.

 DVD Verdict Review - The Seven Year Itch
Films of the 1950s, especially those with urban settings of the time, have a certain unmistakable look and stance—overdressed people (did all women wear A-line dresses all the time?), over-chromed cars, the all-consuming work ethic of corporate America, and all presented under the still firm, repressive hand of the Production Code.
The Seven Year Itch is a perfect exemplar of all this.
That it manages to transcend its time period and still entertain today is a tribute to the guidance of Billy Wilder who directed and co-scripted the film.
