HOLLYWOOD: Some like it hot — and now a statue of Marilyn Monroe is exactly that. The Los Angeles Police Department is investigating the theft of a likeness of the midcentury film legend in Hollywood.
The figure that topped the Ladies of Hollywood gazebo at the corner of Hollywood Boulevard and La Brea Avenue was reported swiped late Sunday night.
The small bronze-colored statue features Monroe in her iconic windblown dress pose from 1955’s The Seven Year Itch.
It has graced the top of the silver structure that is held up by statues of Mae West, Anna Mae Wong, Dolores Del Rio and Dorothy Dandridge and celebrates film actresses representing different cultures who helped change the movie business.
