My weekend with Marilyn

Marilyn Monroe’s resting place

Goodbye Norma Jean. The biggest sex symbol of them all is at rest at last, finished playing the part.

Although, of course, our fascination with Marilyn Monroe shows no slowing down.

Off a highway in Westwood Village Memorial Park Marilyn is as always who everyone comes to see.

The cream of nearby Hollywood also chose this verdant park to see out eternity.

Though as much as she had to suffer in life Marilyn must have felt she would find peace.

And she did until the worst lecherous objectifier of them all moved in next door, Hugh Hefner paying €75,000 to lie next to her.

Goodbye Norma Jean… I would have liked to have known you…

Off now in search of more Hollywood icons.
