It’s hard to believe that, had she lived, Marilyn Monroe would be in her 89th year!
Director, Billy Wilder once described her as, “Cinderella…without the happy ending.” In just five words, there really is no better way of summing up her life.
A traveling tour and sale of 21 color separations and the original print of the only fine art nude photography session that Marilyn Monroe ever did is coming, Aug. 5-8, from LimitedRuns. In total, the collection is expected to net several million dollars, and will move on to New York, if unsold.
Monroe’s last screen worn dress from her last (incomplete) film, Something’s Got To Give, is up for auction! We all know the prices these pieces bring, no doubt, half a million is a conservative estimate!
Update: The dress sold for $348,000 USD!
