Marilyn Monroe: Auction of a Lifetime

About the Show

In November 2016, an LA auction house hosted an auction like no other: 500 lots of the rarest, most valuable and most sought-after of Marilyn Monroe’s possessions. The auction attracted huge worldwide attention and broke records for a 20th century icon. With exclusive access to the auction, this film reveals the most dazzling and personal of the lots, including many of Marilyn's personal letters, and the dresses she wore in her defining performances in Some Like It Hot and when singing Happy Birthday Mr President. Through these items we tell the true story of her life, and reveal the real Marilyn as we have never seen her before.
