LOS ANGELES, Calif. - 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 Sunday for $45,000 at the Hollywood Legends auction at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.
Julien's Auctions, which sold the X-rays, estmated that they would only fetch a total of about $3,000.
Other Monroe-abilia that sold included a chair from her last photo shoot that went for $35,000.
The auction included items from other actresses, including a pair of earrings worn by Kate Winslet in "Titanic" that sold for $25,000 and a dress Audrey Hepburn wore when she starred opposite Fred Astaire in the musical "Funny Face" that fetched $56,250.
