A 15-minute film of Marilyn Monroe awarding some guy with the gift of oral sex will be kept from public view by the New York businessman who has bought it for $1.5 million, the NY Post reported.
A Memorabilia collector named Keya Morgan said he was involved in the sale of the silent, black-and-white film, between the son of a departed FBI informant and a Manhattan businessman.

“The gentleman who bought it said out of respect for Marilyn he’s not going to make a joke of it and put it on the Internet and try to exploit her, ” said Morgan.
What he does with it in private is, of course, his own business.
That’s why he’s a businessman.
According to Morgan, Monroe is dressed in the clip, and the recipient’s head is out of the frame for the entire 15 minutes.
15 minutes? Seriously?
Monroe’s ex-husband Joe DiMaggio tried to buy the clip from the collector for $25, 000 but “he would not part with it, ” according to FBI files on Monroe.
Morgan said the late informant’s son had the original, and a copy stays in the FBI files, according to the Post.
