Monroe Auction


Marilyn Monroe's personal telephone book containing numbers for Frank Sinatra and Henry Fonda was sold at auction alongside one of her paintings for $168,000 on Saturday.

The Some Like It Hot beauty's 1962 painting of a red rose was initially inscribed to President John F Kennedy, but the late leader was never given the present. Instead, Monroe overwrote the inscription with another that reads, "Happy Birthday Marilyn Monroe". The piece sold for $78,000 to an art museum in Rhode Island.

The brown leather phone book, which contains hundred of names and address for celebrities including Peter Lawford and former husbands Joe DiMaggio and Arthur Miller, sold for $90,000, said Darren Julien, president and chief executive of Julien's Auctions, which organized the auction of Monroe memorabilia.
