Marilyn Monroe's Iconic Dress Sells for $4.6 million

"Oh, do you feel the breeze from the subway? Isn't it delicious?" The words were uttered by Marilyn Monroe in the 1955 film The Seven Year Itch as she stood above a New York subway grate and gusts of subterranean air lifted her white dress well above the knee.

Well, that very dress has just sold at auction for $4.6 million to a buyer who wishes to remain anonymous. The dress was part of a huge film memorabilia collection owned by  the actress Debbie Reynolds that she has accumulated over the years that also included Dorothy's ruby slippers and blue gingham dress from the Wizard of Oz and Charlie Chaplin's bowler hat.
