Marilyn Monroe sex tape sells for $1.5 Milllion

That's a lot of jack for a 15 minute film. 8-o

The article is pretty interesting though. The FBI has the original tape and apparently J.E. Hoover was obsessed with proving that it was JFK on the tape.

I'm actually surprised it didn't go for considerably more than that.

Well she isn't showing anything.

Agreed. With as popular as she is, even to this day, I'm quite surprised that's all it went for.

Unless I mis-read the article, she's giving someone (JFK?) a blow job. I'd say that's showing something, even if she's clothed. I can't believe that this wouldn't be worth, say $5 million to someone like Hugh Hefner.

It sounds like the seller was a discerning seller.

My vote for buyer would have been Larry Flynt.

I thought the same thing when I read it.

Joe D offered 50 K for it so he could destroy it back in the day

Definitely, especially given the rarity of the tape, the iconic status held by Monroe, and the government time and involvement spent in relation with the tape.
