Marilyn Monroe’s last movie script up for auction
Los Angeles, Dec 13 (IANS) Late actress Marilyn Monroes annotated scripts from her last movie are to be auctioned.
She was fired from never-finished comedy “Something’s Got to Give” for being persistently disruptive on set, and she died two months later in August 1962.
Now, a script on which she wrote by hand is going under the hammer, reports pagesix.com.
In pencil and green ink, Monroe gives herself acting prompts (in a scene in which she talks to her onscreen children, she writes “Substitute children – B & J (meaning her children Bobby and Jane) if necessary”) and in another note sniffs at Mel Brooks’s writing, “Needs some funny lines.”
