Many thanks to San Diego CBS/CW (News 8) for alerting The Coronado Times to these “flashback videos” that feature Coronado during special holidays and events. Look for them each Thursday in the coming weeks.
Here is the description of the above video:
Though this 1958 footage doesn’t have sound, it still captures the mesmerizing nature of Marilyn Monroe. Marilyn, along with co-star Jack Lemmon, is seen filming scenes for “Some Like It Hot” on Coronado Beach while groups of fans crowd around to watch. Many of the scenes in the film were also shot at the Hotel del Coronado.
Recognize yourself or anyone else as one of the spectators? If so, be sure to share this post on social media and tag them (or yourself)!
