Film buffs will want to visit Bath this summer to see the exhibition on show at the American Museum in Britain. The institution set up to show Brits an alternative view of American culture to that portrayed by Hollywood has been seduced by Marilyn, a Hollywood icon. And who can blame them?

Marilyn – Hollywood Icon is on view at the American Museum in Britain until 30 October 2011
