The belongings of screen icon Marilyn Monroe, including hand-written notations about killing herself, her personally-annotated script of "Some Like It Hot" and the infamous form-fitting beaded dress she wore to sing "Happy Birthday, Mr. President" to John Kennedy in 1962, are going on the auction block in October. The dress, a $12,000 flesh-toned, beaded Jean Louis creation which Monroe was literally sewn into before cooing birthday wishes to Kennedy at Madison Square Garden in May 1962, is expected to command a price in the upper six figures and smash previous records for fashion or celebrity memorabilia at auction, said Christie's in New York, which is coordinating the sale.
