On the 50th anniversary of her death, sex symbol and international movie icon, Marilyn Monroe is still larger than life, in Palm Springs.
Monroe was discovered by local resident and photographer Bruno Bernard at the Racquetclub in Palm Springs in 1949. At the club, Bernard introduced her to the legendary William Morris Agency talent scout Johnny Hyde and the rest is history.
If you’re a fan of the movie icon and are interested in purchasing a home in the neighborhood where she once lived, please contact me and I would be happy to assist you.
Or, if you’re interested in living in the home or different celebrity, nearly every Hollywood star has called Palm Springs home, at one time or another. The majority of them have owned homes in The Movie Colony, Old Las Palmas, Little Tuscany, Chino Canyon, Deepwell and The Mesa.
Photo: “Forever Marilyn” is a 26-foot tall sculpture by artist Seward Johnson. The public art piece was unveiled May 24th, 2012 at the corner of Tahquitz and Palm Canyon Drive on the site of the former Bank of American building. The sculpture will be on display for the next year.
