Rare footage of Marilyn Monroe on the set of her last completed film brought in $60,000 at an auction of movie memorabilia Saturday. Hurray for TC finally being current!
The two reels of silent, 8-millimeter color film shot on the set of “The Misfits” had been expected to draw starting bids of between $10,000 and $20,000.
$60,000 really? I know Marilyn Monroe isn’t quite my decade but why would you pay $60,000 for a few minutes of footage. That’s like $500 a second.
