Marilyn Monroe film 'shows actress smoking marijuana'


The video was unearthed from an attic some 50 years after it was filmed

A reel-to-reel home movie which allegedly shows Hollywood legend Marilyn Monroe smoking marijuana has emerged after 50 years.

The silent film, shot at a private home in New Jersey, was recently purchased by a collector.

Monroe at one point is passed a cigarette, takes a puff, but does not appear to inhale deeply.

The person who shot the film told the Reuters news agency the cigarette contained marijuana.

Collector Keya Morgan recently purchased the film for $275,000 from the film's owner, who wishes to remain anonymous.

The film is believed to date from 1958 or 1959, and shows a happy and relaxed-looking Monroe.

"This is the late 1950s so she is already very famous, but this is a personal side of her we've never seen before" said Mr Morgan.

"People have never seen her in such a relaxed pose."
