Marilyn Monroe, whose 26 feet high bronze and stainless steel statue is drawing thousands of fans to the nearby resort of Palm Springs, has been turned down by Hollywood 50 years after her death.

Hollywood authorities felt the 48,000-pound fee for renting the 15-ton sculpture for one year would not attract enough tourists to be “cost effective”.

Now 34 other US cities are vying to hire the towering tribute to the screen icon.

The Daily Express quoted Palm Springs tourism Chief Hillary Angel as saying, that “Hollywood’s loss is the rest of America’s gain, and that people are lining up to have their photos taken with the statue.
