    Extensive collection of (43) original camera and production negatives of Marilyn Monroe. Extensive collection of (41) vintage studio and set production negatives of Marilyn Monroe from four of her films (and her co-stars in The Misfits): River of No Return (three 2 ¼ in. camera negatives); Some Like it Hot (one 8 x 10 in. plus six 35mm camera negatives); The Misfits (10 8 in. x 10 in., one 35mm, and two color 2 ¼ in. camera negatives of Marilyn, plus nine 8 x 10 in. of her director and co-stars); and Something's Got To Give (nine 35mm camera negatives). Most smaller format shots are production candids, previously unpublished aside from this archive. Safety stock, many with hand-numbering in India ink, and condition varies with occasional corner chipping, slight waving or other signs of age and use, such as border masking and retouching for print. It bears mention that the shot from The Misfits of Marilyn in the bar playing paddleball originally included the man to her left slapping her on the bottom, but studio has retouched the negative to eliminate his arm from the scene to achieve political correctness and propriety. Overall very good to fine.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
