Today, June 1st, marks what would be Marilyn’s 95th birthday. As the sun shines over Brighton for what seems like the first time since lockdown, this latest artwork from The Postman (based on a 1958 photo by Carl Perutz) has appeared in Queensbury Mews.
Nine years after its first publication, Marilyn & Me – a photographic homage from Lawrence Schiller, who got the scoop on her ‘skinny-dip’ in the unfinished Something’s Got to Give – will be reissued in hardback for an affordable £50 by on June 20th. You can read my review of Taschen’s deluxe edition here.
And finally, rare footage of the Some Like It Hot cast and crew at the Hotel Del Coronado has emerged – a cinematic delight!
