(Newser) – A copy of an FBI-classified Marilyn Monroe sex tape quietly surfaced last month and sold for $1.5 million, reports the New York Post. The 15 minutes of silent footage, which the anonymous New York buyer plans to keep private so as not to make a “Paris Hilton out of her,” features Monroe performing oral sex on a mystery man in the 1950s. 

The sale was brokered by a memorabilia agent who learned of the film's existence from an FBI source. The same source told him J. Edgar Hoover had had agents confiscate the original and try to link it to John F. Kennedy or his brother Bobby. The copy was made by the informant who tipped the FBI to the film. Partially redacted FBI documents said the informant was once offered $25,000 for the "French-type" film by Marilyn hubby Joe DiMaggio but refused the offer.
