Marilyn Monroe chest X-ray to sell at auction

275x250.jpgAs fan items go it's about as odd as it gets -- but a chest X-ray of Marilyn Monroe is set to sell at a Hollywood auction.

The image - expected to sell for £800 - was taken in 1952 when Monroe attended a Florida hospital to be treated for endometriosis.

It clearly shows the ribs and the outline of Some Like It Hot star's breasts and is predicted to be a hotly contested item.

Other Monroe items due to be sold at the Julien's Auctions in June are the couch she had therapy sessions on, clothing and a pair of her vintage wooden skis.

However, it is the boob X-ray which stands out as a unique (if not a little creepy) celebrity fan collectors item.
The auction is taking place at the Planet Hollywood Casino in Las Vegas on June 26 and June 27.
