Johnny Cash fans can get an up-close-and-personal look at the artists private farmhouse residence in Bon Aqua, Tennessee.

The Story Tellers Museum is in a general store that the great Red Wortham converted into a recording studio, and that Johnny Cash used as a place for local concerts. Visitors can see the historic “Little Stage” where the “Saturday Night in Hickman County” guitar pulls once took place. Johnny’s daughter, Cindy Cash, helped curators create the experience.

Inside the museum are handwritten letters and song lyrics (including the words to “Saturday Night in Hickman County,” inspired by Cash’s time in Bon Aqua), Cash memorabilia, a leaf from a rare Gutenberg Bible, which was printed in the 1450s, and the “One Piece at a Time” car, inspired by the story-song Cash recorded 40 years ago.

The Cash Hideaway Farm at Bon Aqua belonged to Johnny Cash for over thirty years. Visitors can see the place he called “the center of my universe.”

Marilyn Monroe in long-lost Milton H. Greene footage

Marilyn Monroe fans can now see long-lost footage of the Hollywood icon shot by photographer Milton H. Greene.

According to Vanity Fair,  “beginning July 16, the Morrison Hotel Gallery at the Sunset Marquis Hotel will display some of Greene’s never-before-seen photos from these sessions in its “Some Like It Hot” exhibit. The presentation will also feature 16-mm-film footage (previewed above), showing Monroe in rare and relaxed form—mostly out of the spotlight. Among the moments Greene captured: a cheerful Monroe kissing her third husband, Arthur Miller, and greeting guests at the couple’s 1956 wedding reception; Monroe performing a musical number in the 1956 romantic comedyBus Stop; and the beauty preening between the sheets for an intimate photo shoot.”

Greene is best known for capturing some of the greatest stars of the 1950s and 1960s in his enduring portraits, including Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor, Cary Grant, Sophia Loren, Audrey Hepburn, and Paul Newman but is most famous for his images of Monroe.

The exhibit will run through July 24.
