Marilyn Monroe Ate Here!

June 2, 2010
Paradise Cove is rich in Hollywood history. Check out this photo below. It's of Marilyn Monroe taking "Sweater Girl" modeling shots on the top of the Cove. By the way, yesterday was Marilyn's birthday. She would have been 84!
Some of the walls of the Beach Cafe are lined with black-and-white photos of Golden Era stars, like Clark Gable and this guy below that the bears didn't recognize. Do you?
Nibs noticed that all three original Charlie's Angels (Farrah Fawcett, Jaclyn Smith and Kate Jackson) had also been there as their autographed head shots were plastered above the bar.
Nice to see there are still some old Hollywood haunts around.


  1. Nibs learned that Clark Gable and his wife (that blonde comedienne bombshell whose name we.... oh, that's right, Carole Lombard!) used to dine here often. How romantic!

  2. The man in the photograph looks familiar, but I can't name him. Who is he?

  3. found him!

    big in the 20s and 30s
