A Spanish collector plans to auction what he says is a newly discovered 8-millimeter version of a film purportedly showing Marilyn Monroe having sex when she was an underage actress known as Norma Jean.
A Marilyn Monroe expert, however, disputes that. He says the film shows another woman who is considerably heavier and less feminine than the legendary film star.
Collector Mikel Barsa says he wants at least $500,000 for the sexually explicit 6 1/2-minute film. He says some 600,000 copies of a 16-millimeter version of the same film were sold more than a decade ago.
But memorabilia expert Scott Forner says people are simply making lots of money from an old stag film that doesn't show Monroe.
