Marilyn Monroe’s chest x-ray sells for $45,000 at auction

Well this certainly goes in our weird and wonderful fashion file.  The fashion icon, Marilyn Monroe, had her chest x-rayed at Cedars-Sinai when she was 28 years old. Little did she know that that very same film would draw not only intense media attention but also a shed load of cash! It was only expected to fetch $1,000 when it sold at Julien’s auction yesterday.  But some keen bidders raced the price up to a grand $45,000 before calling it quits.  What on earth do they intend to do with the piece of medical/hollywood history?  Frame it and put it in their bathroom?
