Marilyn exhibition under threat after theft of truck

An exhibition of clothing, photos and other items linked to screen legend Marilyn Monroe may not go ahead in Prague after one of the trucks carrying the materials from Italy was stolen on Tuesday night. While many of the stolen items were exhibition furniture such as display cases and pedestals, some original photographs were also taken. The lorry was found empty near Mělník in Central Bohemia on Wednesday morning. The travelling exhibition, simply entitled Marilyn, is scheduled to open its doors at Prague Castle’s Riding School next Wednesday.
