Our Private Tour Guests Want to See More of Marilyn Monroe
There is much of Marilyn Monroe to explore when sightseeing around Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Westwood. Our young Los Angeles tour guests learned much about her early career as we visited the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel right in the heart of Tinseltown. Marilyn was a frequent guest at this historic hotel across the street from Grauman’s Chinese Theater and had her first modeling photo shoot by the hotel pool (recently remodeled). We spent some time in the Grauman’s forecourt where a poster hung commemorating the handprint ceremony for Marilyn and Jayne Russell (Gentlemen Prefer Blondes). On the way to Beverly Hills and Westwood to see her homes, favorite places and then her crypt, we passed by what was once the Gillmore Field, a professional sports stadium where this photo of Marilyn was taken when she arrived to throw out the first pitch.
