Marilyn Monroe’s handwritten notes on how to act sexier are now in the hands of one lucky fan.
According to TMZ, two scripts from the unfinished 1962 film, which also starred Dean Martin, were put up for sale at Nate D. Sanders Auctions in Los Angeles.
According to representatives from the auction house, each script provides “distinct insight” into the actress’ creative thinking process.
The two scripts feature Monroe’s handwritten notes in pencil and green ink, with her notes differing on each respective script.
Following the auction ending, Nate D. Sanders have listed the final selling price of the first script – $25,000 (£20,000).
It featured the blonde star’s notes on 42 pages and included simple dialogue corrections, in-depth memory notes and more. Back cover notes include Monroe’s comments, “Joke writers Mel Brooks / Herb Gardner / Need spice / raisins / Need some funny lines.”
The price of the second script has yet to be released.
Director George Cukor was directing Something’s Got to Give, but the film was never completed. Monroe was consistently disruptive and ill during the film’s production and was fired in June, 1962.
The film ended up being her last role, as she died in August, 1962 at the age of 36 following a barbiturate overdose.
