Alleged Marilyn Monroe Porn Film Goes on Auction Block

Marilyn Monroe starred in a panoply of extraordinary films from the late 1940s through the 1950s until her mysterious death in 1962. She also allegedly starred in two adult movies. One such vintage porn film was recently found in Buenos Aires, and it’s due to hit the auction block at a starting bid of $500,000.

Marilyn Monroe was a totally unknown aspiring starlet in 1946–47 when the 16mm porn film was made. The movie is now the “undisputed highlight” of the first Buenos Aires Film Collecting Fair. The MM porn classic, which is only six minutes long, was previously owned by a Spanish film collector. It’s expected to sell for at least twice the opening bid. And why shouldn’t it? The only other known copy of the film was sold in 2001 for $1.2 million.

So, what does the legendary blonde do in the movie? Apparently not much. Marilyn masturbated and then had sex with an unidentified man. The real question is: was she the real Marilyn Monroe?

Apparently, yes. In a 1996 letter, the then president of the American Film Institute wrote that “if it wasn’t Monroe, it would have to be her twin sister.” The FBI also verified that the jewelry worn by the woman in the porn film were “consistent with secret files” on the Gentlemen Prefer Blondes blonde. And speaking of the FBI, they were quick to add that MM’s mystery co-star was not the young, unmarried, pre-presidential John F. Kennedy.

Wow. What a relief. At any rate, the last Marilyn Monroe “stag” film sold in 2008 for a whopping $1.5 million.

Crack open your piggy banks, vintage porn connoisseurs.
