NEW YORK.-A Marilyn Monroe sex tape that was kept in a bank vault for 40 years was sold Monday for $1.5 million (£750,000) to a New York businessman.
The 15-minute flick said to show the actress performing oral sex. It was found by memorabilia collector Keya Morgan, who said it appears to have been shot in the 1950s, and came to light the following decade.
The gentleman who bought it said out of respect for Marilyn hes not going to make a joke of it and put it on the Internet and try to exploit her, said Morgan to Reuters.
The silent film shows Monroe on her knees in front of a man whose face is out of the shot, indicating that he knew the camera was there. The footage appears to have been shot in the 1950s, and was discovered in the mid-'60s. Then-FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover had his agents spend two weeks futilely trying to prove that Monroe's sex partner was either John F. Kennedy or Robert F. Kennedy, according to declassified agency documents and interviews.
