If the song wasn't sexy enough, the dress made up for it--so tight Marilyn Monroe had to be sewn into it.
LOCATOR: NEW YORK CITY

37 years later, the dress she only wore once to sing Happy Birthday to JFK -- took peoples breath away again - selling for more than a million dollars - the highest price every paid for a piece of Hollywood memorabilia.

(NAT)



It was just one of a host of Marilyn Monroe collectibles auctioned off at Christie's in New York--everything from a 33-thousand dollar Bible, to a dress she wore to entertain troops in Korea - price tag: more than a hundred grand.

Speaking of grand, how about her Grand Piano - that went for more than $600 thousand dollars.

So did this: the eternity ring given to Monroe by baseball legend Joe DiMaggio - price tag: 772 thousand dollars.

There were earrings and jeans, pictures and shoes - even her Golden Globe Award - items that had been in storage for decades - left to Monroes acting coach after her death in 1962.
A portion of the proceeds is expected to go to charity.

(NAT)



It was an event collectors had waited for for months. Even some of her former stars showed up for the gala - Tony Curtis who appeared with Monroe in the Hollywood classic, "Some Like it Hot" sat in the front row as the bidding began.
He was one of the lucky ones who actually got a seat - It was standing room only with 12-hundred people registered to bid, and more than 100 telephone lines installed for collectors around the world.

(NAT)



In the end, even Christie's auction house was surprised by the bidding - the last big auction of the millennium, for a woman many described as the icon of the 20th century glamour. Lee Cowan, CBS News, New York.))
