Three chest X-rays of Marilyn Monroe were sold to 45,000 dollars, during the auction “Hollywood Legends” held in Las Vegas, inform Telegraph.co.uk.
The X-rays were made in 1954, at Cedars of Lebanon in Florida. The actress was then hospitalized for endometriosis, a disease of the uterus which caused her powerful pain.
Monroe was at that time in the process of divorce with baseball player Joe Di Maggio.
A doctor working at the hospital’s radiology department later got Monroe’s X-rays and used it as teaching materials for his students.
And later gave the x-rays to his daughter, who has now pulled the auction, to the delight of fans of Marilyn.
