Marilyn Monroe Photos Sell for $750,000

Hundreds of photographs of Marilyn Monroe that languished for years in New York have sold.

From a piece in the Telegraph...

The photos come from a collection of some 4,000 Milton Greene pictures that Poland obtained from Chicago businessman Dino Matingas in the mid-1990s as the result of a complex communist-era embezzlement scandal linked to the buy-out of Poland’s state debt. Proceeds from the auction will go to the Polish government. 

Some of the images have never been published before, according to Marta Maciazek, the Polish official in charge of cleaning up the mess from the corruption affair.
