PALM SPRINGS - The Associated Press
AP PhotoA massive statue of Marilyn Monroe has arrived in the desert resort city of Palm Springs.
The Los Angeles Times says the 26-foot (85-foot)-tall, 34,000-pound (15,422-kilogram) statue arrived Monday morning.
Chamber of Commerce CEO Nona Watson says the statue of the "Some Like it Hot" star is still being assembled.
The sculpture depicts Monroe trying to push down her skirt as it billows in the wind from her memorable scene in the "The Seven Year Itch." The statue was created by 80-year-old artist Seward Johnson, an heir to the Johnson & Johnson fortune.
The official ribbon cutting will be held May 24.
