Marilyn Monroe's final film script achieves $25,000

Marilyn Monroe's annotated copy of the script for Something's Got to Give, her final film, has sold for $25,000.

It features her notes on the motivation and responses of her character: ''Stunned / Dazed - sky high with adventure'', ''dead pan/I really don't know'' and ''[L]et me get into something more comfortable / leading him on -''.

Filming began in April 1962, but Marilyn called in with a sinus infection on the first day. Throughout the rest of the shoot she would turn up only intermittently.

On June 8 1962 she was fired. Two months later she would be found dead at her home in Brentwood.

Production started up on the film again the following year.

It was retitled Move Over Darling and stars Doris Day and James Garner.

Other highlights included a rare signed photograph of Orville and Wilbur Wright that sold for $15,000.

The lot is further enhanced by a signature from US president William Taft.

It originates from a June 10, 1909 awards ceremony hosted by the Aero Club of America at the White House.

The brothers were at the height of their fame at the time, having completed the first powered flight six years earlier. They spent the intervening years travelling the world and performing demonstrations.
