The Golden Globe award, given to Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962) in 1961, was auctioned in the US with a record $ 250,000. Like the Julien Auction Auction report, this is the largest amount given for this copy of the prize.
Auctions for Monroe personal items were held in Los Angeles on Friday and Saturday. The car was sold to the actress – Ford Thunderbird, 1956 cabriolet. The car sells for 490,000 dollars, although it is estimated to be at least 500,000. This is believed to be a Christmas gift from business partners and photographer actress Milton Green (1922-1985). The American sex symbol became the owner of a luxury car six months before marrying playwright and writer Arthur Miller (1915-2005).
Monroe owned a car for six years and spent almost 50,000 kilometers, and then gave it to Lee Strasburg's son (1901-1982), John, 18 years old. Under the strong Ford cover, which developed a maximum speed of more than 180 km / h, an 8-cylinder 8-cylinder engine with 225-horsepower was installed.
The auction also sells slots such as the Monro driver license issued in Connecticut (for $ 10,000), mountain crystal earrings (for $ 10.2 thousand), copies of the first edition of Playboy with the actress on the cover and signed by publisher Hugh Hefner (32,000 dollars). But what's even more interesting is the stylish black satin blouse where Monro conquered the audience at a press conference at Los Angeles airport in 1956 – selling for $ 43,750,000.
Throughout his career, Monroe (whose real name is Norma Jean Mortensen) has performed around 30 roles in various films, the latter being a female photographer in the film "Something to Happen" by George Kookor (1962) which is incomplete. He died in Los Angeles on August 5, 1962 from a hypnosis overdose. Along with Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, Superman and Mickey Mouse are considered to be one of the most famous images of mass culture.
