Puffing Monroe

A silent home movie showing Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe smoking marijuana has been unearthed and sold after languishing for 50 years in a granny’s attic. “The silent film, shot at a private home in New Jersey, was recently purchased by a collector. Monroe at one point is passed a cigarette, takes a puff, but does not appear to inhale deeply. The person who shot the film told the Reuters news agency the cigarette contained marijuana. Collector Keya Morgan recently purchased the film for $275,000 from the film's owner, who wishes to remain anonymous. The film is believed to date from 1958 or 1959, and shows a happy and relaxed-looking Monroe. ‘This is the late 1950s so she is already very famous, but this is a personal side of her we've never seen before’ said Mr Morgan. ‘People have never seen her in such a relaxed pose.’”
