There is a bronze bust of the starlet, a cardboard cutout and several oil paintings. A wig and dresses worn by her are displayed in a glass case. And, visitors are invariably told, the office suite was once used by Playboy founder Hugh Hefner, who made Monroe his first centerfold. It is not surprising that CMG would pay homage to the departed starlet.
