Ripley’s Museum in Orlando, Florida is organising several events alongside the current display of Marilyn’s ‘Happy Birthday’ dress, including a lookalike contest and screenings of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Some Like It Hot and The Seven Year Itch in December – more details here.
The dress worn by Marilyn when she sang for President Kennedy and assorted paraphernalia continues its US tour with a short stop at Ripley’s museum in Orlando, Florida from November 8, reports Attractions magazine.
An Orlando court has ruled that all licensing rights for the work of Joseph Jasgur (one of the first photographers to collaborate with Marilyn during her modelling days) will now revert to his estate. Sadly this decision comes too late for the photographer, who died two years ago.
