Marilyn Monroe's X-rays sold

LOS ANGELES - THE apparently endless market for images of Marilyn Monroe now extends to inside the bombshell's body.

A set of three Monroe Chest X-rays from a 1954 hospital visit sold on Sunday for US$45,000 (S$62,000) at the Hollywood Legends auction at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.

Julien's Auctions, which sold the X-rays, estimated that they would only fetch a total of about US$3,000.

Other Monroe-abilia that sold included a chair from her last photo shoot that went for US$35,000.

The auction included items from other actresses, including a pair of earrings worn by Kate Winslet in Titanic that sold for US$25,000 and a dress Audrey Hepburn wore when she starred opposite Fred Astaire in the musical Funny Face that fetched US$56,250. -- AP
