Our Private Tour Folks Still Like Her Hot
Marilyn Monroe was a star of stars and continues to imbue the air of Hollywood with her beauty and style. She has been gone now more than 50 years yet we can expect almost daily questions about her from our Los Angeles private tour guests. We not only know much about her but we can take our guests to see the homes where she lived, where she succumbed to a drug overdose, where she is buried, where she met Joe DiMaggio, where she filmed Bus Stop and many more interesting places around Hollywood and Beverly Hills. Along Hollywood Boulevard we might even run into a Marilyn Monroe doppelgänger happy to pose with visitors walking the Hollywood Walk of Fame in exchange for a couple of ducats. A girl has to make a living, after all, and diamonds are a girl’s best friend. She has a star on the famed sidewalk. Nearby her handprints in the Grauman’s Chinese Theater courtyard are unquestionably the most touched and photographed. Her grave in a tiny cemetery not far from Hollywood is always decorated with flowers, mementos and lipstick kisses on the granite face of her tomb. She is never forgotten.
