    A Marilyn Monroe Never-Before-Seen Piece of Black and White Film Footage from Korea, 1954. Shot on 8mm, approximately 1 minute and 34 seconds long, film shows MM getting getting off of a tank (wearing pants and a bomber jacket), then walking amongst soldiers, then performing on stage (for just a nanosecond), then waving to soldiers after her performance (still wearing her dress but with an added matching jacket), then getting into a jeep (wearing the same pants and bomber jacket again) as she waves and blows kisses to soldiers while being slowly driven away (the film continues for another minute and a half but without MM in it); the footage is somewhat "jumpy" as the filmmaker was evidently running after MM tying to get his shots while starting and stopping his camera, but he had close access to her and there are some great close-ups of her face; footage was transferred to a DVD which is included as is the original mustard-yellow 'Cine-Kodak Super-X' box that the reel originally came in -- the box further has a handwritten annotation in black fountain pen ink reading "Marilyn / Monroe" plus a postmark reading "Honolulu / Hawaii / Mar 8 '54" where it was sent home shortly after it was shot.
