It looks like the 'make a sex tape and become famous' trick was used long before the days of Paris and Kim K. Hollywood’s most famous bombshell Marilyn Monroe apparently had a steamy sex tape of her own--which was just purchased by a New York businessman for $1.5 million.
The 15 minutes of 16mm film footage shows Marilyn performing oral sex on an unidentified man. Monroe is on her knees in front of a man whose face is just out of the shot. The footage appears to have been shot in the 1950's.
"You see instantly see that it's Marilyn Monroe - she has the famous mole," said Keya Morgan, a well-known memorabilia collector who discovered the film and brokered its purchase.
There's apparently only one copy of the scandalous tape so don't expect to see it on YouTube anytime soon. "He said he's just going to lock it up," Morgan said. "He said, 'I'm not going to make a Paris Hilton out of her. I'm not going to sell it, out of respect.' "
