It’s a bit creepy and absurd, but it is true. It just goes on to show how much we want to know our favorite celebs, up and close. Juliens Auctions is allowing Marilyn Monroe die-hards for an ‘inside’ look into her life. Yes, believe it or not but they are auctioning off a chest X-ray of the star. It was produced in November, 1954 at the Cedars of Lebanon Hospital in Florida. Expected to fetch nothing less than $1,200, the X-ray sheet shows the curvaceous beauty posing such that her hands are on her lips.
Marilyn Monroe was diagnosed with endometriosis, a condition of the womb that gave her a lot of pain, and that is when the medical tests were conducted. Film footage tells that the actress was able to leave the hospital in two days of getting this X-ray examination.
Again, the X-ray carries Marilyn Monroe’s married name Di Maggio as that was when she was married to American baseball star Joe Di Maggio althought the couple had split was going through a divorce. One of the docs working at the hospital got hold of this X-ray and used to show it to his students during his lectures. It was eventually passed on to his daughter who is not offering it for sale.
