Marilyn Monroe photo exhibition

If anybody is lucky enough to be in Poland in the next couple of weeks, here's an interesting item I heard on podcast from Radio Poland's English service. Apparently, some American who wound up in a fraud case in Poland a decade or two ago had a collection of vintage Hollywood photos which he used as an asset to pay off the debts to Poland in the fraud case. So, a museum in Poland has wound up with this collection of a couple thousand photos. That museum is putting a couple dozen on display, specifically a couple of dozen taken of Marilyn Monroe during the shooting of Bus Stop. If you're in the Polish city of Wrocław, the exhibition is on until March 24.

The official site for the exhibit, at least in English, is here, I believe.
