September 15, 1954: The famous scene of Marilyn Monroe, laughing as her skirt is blown up by the blast from a subway vent, is shot on this day in 1954 during the filming of The Seven Year Itch. The scene was shot twice, once on location in front of the Trans-Lux 52nd Street Theater at 586 Lexington Ave. in New York City, and the other on a sound stage - both were used in the final film.
The scene infuriated her husband, Joe DiMaggio, who thought it was vulgar and exhibitionist, and the couple divorced shortly after.
