Marilyn Monroe Statue in Palm Springs, California

Just about a week before we arrived in Palm Springs, Marilyn Monroe made her official debut in Palm Springs. Well, at least, this sculpted replica by artist Seaward Johnson of the famous subway draft scene  from the classic movie The Seven Year Itch. I love Marilyn but, personally, I think it is the ultimate in tacky kitsch but the locals seem quite taken with her. So I had to do what the locals do and snap some pictures of her, all 26 feet of her!









She is kinda cute, I just hope she's wearing a high SPF!
