A 15-minute, 8-mm film of Marilyn Monroe performing oral sex on a mystery man was recently purchased for $1.5 million by a Manhattan businessman who wants to protect the late actress’ privacy. Which doesn’t mean he won’t watch it alone in the dark.
“The gentleman who bought it said out respect for Marilyn he’s not going to make a joke of it and put it on the Internet and try to exploit her,” said memorabilia collector Keya Morgan. “That’s not his intention and I would never get my name involved if that were to happen.”
The silent, black-and-white clip belonged to the of the son of a dead FBI informant who possessed it. Marilyn’s clothed, while the man’s face remains out of frame for the duration of the video. In other words, if this weren’t a Marilyn Monroe sex tape, it would be the most boring porno ever.
According to Morgan, former FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover spent years trying to link the film to Monroe’s rumored love affair with U.S. President John F. Kennedy. ”The FBI agent that I interviewed said J. Edgar Hoover was completely obsessed,” said Morgan. “A team of nine individuals were analyzing the tape inside a lab. J. Edgar Hoover brought in a few prostitutes who allegedly had been with President Kennedy and they tried to… see if that was really President Kennedy.”
