Monterey, California: Historic Cannery Row and John Steinbeck Walking Tour
Hooray for Hollywood / Marilyn Monroe Clash By Night
Stop here and take a look at the informational plaque which explains Hollywood’s connection to Cannery Row. Many feature film and television productions have been filmed here in Monterey and you can take Doug Lumsden's Monterey Movie Tour to learn more.
One was Clash by Night which was filmed in 1952. It starred Barbara Stanwyck and featured a young Marilyn Monroe in her first credited starring roll. She was a cannery worker and it was filmed in the San Xavier Cannery which was located in this spot on Cannery Row.
Before we move on you can look across the street an see that big rusty old steel fish oil storage tank that was part of the San Xavier Cannery.
When you're ready, continue walking straight. The chain linked fence will be on your right.
