Nothing is original in late-capitalist America!
Before Pamela Anderson, Rob Lowe, and Paris Hilton paved the way for sex tapes, apparently, there was a black and white video of Marilyn Monroe performing oral sex, which just sold to “a New York businessman” for $1.5 million, The New York Post reports.
The silent, 15-minute reel of 16 mm footage “appears” to have been shot in the 50’s and shows Ms. Monroe performing the act on an unidentified man, who for a long time the F.B.I. tried to prove was John F. Kennedy or Robert F. Kennedy.
In the tape, Ms. Monroe is on her knees and never looks at the lens, while the man’s face is out of the shot, according to the Post.
A “confidential informant” supplied the original tape to the F.B.I. in the 60’s, which to this day remains classified.
The tape that was sold was a copy inherited by the informant’s son.
If everyone involved in this tale is telling the truth, you’ll never see the footage: the businessman who bought it, according to the broker on the deal, said “I’m not going to make a Paris Hilton out of her. I’m not going to sell it, out of respect.”
