The Last Days of Norma Jean

The last pictures ever snapped of Marilyn Monroe are being hawked on eBay by pianist Buddy Greco, with the opening bid set at $7,500 for six original images -- four that include Monroe and two with Frank Sinatra. The photos were taken at the Cal-Neva Resort in Nevada on July 31, 1962, just five before Marilyn overdosed at her Brentwood bungalow. Like many a gay before me, Marilyn has always held a big spot in my heart, so just seeing these images of her looking so alive so close to her tragic demise kind of breaks my heart all over again. (See listing HERE.)

Do you think Marilyn was murdered, killed herself intentionally, or it was an accident? I think it may have been an accident. It is all so very sad. I just loved her in "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes."

Argh, but why did he sell them through a group with a 0 rating on eBay. Makes you kinda worry.
