Where is Wales?

For me the lowest point in the entire history of Welsh popular culture occurred in London in 1956.

Screen goddess Marilyn Monroe and new hubby Arthur Miller had just arrived in Britain to begin work on The Prince and the Showgirl with Laurence Olivier.

When asked at a press conference if she'd be visiting Wales, the geographically challenged movie legend replied: "Where is Wales? I only have the weekends off."

Always preferred Elizabeth Taylor myself...
