Marilyn Monroe

This documentary explores Marilyn Monroe's short but brilliant life story, told through some of her most personal and glamorous possessions - including the most expensive dress in the world - with exclusive interviews from those who worked with her and knew her well. In November 2016 a show-stopping auction of Marilyn's last possessions took place in Los Angeles. Each item that was sold provides new insight into the real Marilyn Monroe, from the dress she commissioned herself, to sing Happy Birthday Mr President in - a breathtaking gown made of 'skin and beads' that stole the front cover of every paper in America and sold for a record breaking $4.81 million - to private thoughts scrawled on a menu card, saying 'think with your body', which sold for $4000.
