LONDON — Marilyn Monroe's marriage contract to U.S. playwright Arthur Miller fetched more than $14,000 today, Christie's auctioneers said.
The Ketubbah, a Jewish wedding contract dated July 1, 1956, was witnessed in New York by Lee Strasberg, founder of New York's Actors' Studio.
Monroe converted to Judaism for the marriage, Miller's second and her third, which caused a sensation in Hollywood. They divorced in 1961.
The price, paid by an anonymous buyer, was at the upper range of Christie's estimate. The certificate was offered for sale by the executors of her estate.
