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.
