 Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe is in Palm Springs... in case you didn't know.  This week she was pampered with the largest pedicure ever!

If you are visiting the Palm Springs area come downtown and see her.  She is waiting for you!

Marilyn Monroe

While in Palm Springs don’t miss the 26 ft. tall sculpture of Marilyn Monroe by American artist and Johnson & Johnson heir Seward Johnson. The sculpture is inspired by the famous photograph by Bernard of Hollywood from the film The Seven Year Itch. She is located at what many call the corner of “Main and Main,” Palm Canyon & Tahquitz Canyon Way in the heart of downtown Palm Springs.

Marilyn Monroe has many legendary ties to Palm Springs. To name a few, she was photographed and “discovered” by Johnny Hyde from the William Morris Agency at Charlie Farrell’s Racquet Club. She was also rumored to have frequented a Movie Colony estate with Joe DiMaggio, currently known as the Sand Acre Estate, and owned a 1950’s bungalow-style house in Las Palmas.

In May of 2012, “Forever Marilyn” made her journey to Palm Springs from Pioneer Court along famed Michigan Ave in Chicago.

Kathy - A 26' tall Marilyn Monroe would be an impressive sight to see.  Her pedicure is a reminder for me to make an appointment for my toes too!

Marilyn is big enough to play center for the Miami Heat.

Good luck and success.

I wonder how much that manicure cost, Kathy.  I didn't know she was discovered in Palm Springs.

Palm Springs is a fitting place for Marilyn's statue.  The scene from The Seven Year Itch is so iconic of Marilyn.
