Marilyn and The Beach

Marilyn Monroe is perhaps one of the greatest faces and figures from the 1950s. Which is why it was such a big deal for her to film the movie classic ‘Some Like It Hot’ in Coronado.

If you google her name followed by Coronado, you will find picture upon picture of Marilyn standing on the beach in front of the Hotel Del.


As expected, in these photos, there is a sea of people surrounding her, trying to get as close as possible.  The celebrity status and [in my opinion] her attractive shapely body drew the crowd to the beach, creating what I would imagine a giddy vibe.  Fame does things to people and having Ms Monroe on the sandy Coronado beaches certainly brought a lot of excitement.

While Marilyn filmed the movie, she stayed at the Hotel Del.  This is clearly one of Coronado’s claims to fame.  I get excited just writing about it! Not only is it cool to have a movie filmed in your hometown, it’s over the top with greatness when the star happens to be the one and only Marilyn Monroe.
