Marilyn Monroe is saying 'Goodbye' to Palm Springs and 'Hello' to New Jersey. A giant statue of Monroe's famous "subway breeze" pose has been dismantled in Palm Springs, California. Monroe struck the pose in the 1955 movie "The Seven Year Itch". The scupture, 26-feet tall, was made by American artist, Seward Johnson, to immortalize Monroe who died in 1962 at age 36. The statue is being transported to New Jersey where it will be part of an exhibit honoring Johnson's work.
