How Much Can A Burial Space Close To Marylin Monroe Be Auctioned For

Is marilyn monroe buried or cremated and what is a crypt and can it be opened?

On August 8, 1962, Monroe was interred in a crypt at Corridor of Memories #24, at the Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery in Los Angeles. Lee Strasberg delivered the eulogy. The crypt space immediately to the left of Monroe's was bought and reserved by Hugh Hefner in 1992.[137] DiMaggio took control of the funeral arrangements which consisted of only 31 close family and friends. Police were also present to keep the press away.[138] Her casket was solid bronze and was lined with champagne colored silk.[139] Allan “Whitey” Snyder did her make-up which was supposedly a promise made in earlier years if she were to die before him.[139] She was wearing her favorite green Emilio Pucci dress.[139] In her hands was a small bouquet of pink teacup roses.[139] For the next 20 years, red roses were placed in a vase attached to the crypt, courtesy of Joe DiMaggio.[138]
In August 2009, the crypt space directly above that of Monroe was placed for auction[140] on eBay. Elsie Poncher plans to exhume her husband and move him to an adjacent plot. She advertised the crypt, hoping "to make enough money to pay off the $1.6 million mortgage" on her Beverly Hills mansion.[137] The winning bid was placed by an anonymous Japanese man for $4.6 million,[141] but the winning bidder later backed out "because of the paying problem". Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner, who never met Monroe, bought the crypt next to hers at the Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery. He affirmed that the initial success of his magazine directly correlated with Monroe

What are some interesting facts about Marilyn Monroe?

There are so many interesting facts about Marilyn Monroe, some are more well known than others. See below my list of facts:1. Marilyn had very early stage plastic surgery. Plastic surgery being very unheard of at the time, She was advised to have the Cartilage at the tip of her nose reshaped, a chin implant and and vaneer teeth put in.2. Although she was typecast as a dumb blonde (a persona she hated), she was actually extremely intelligent. She had an apparent IQ of 168.3. Although she famously sang “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend,” in reality Monroe wasn’t into expensive jewelry. All the jewelry she owned was costume, expect for a diamond ring and a strand of pearls given to her by her second husband, Joe DiMaggio.4. Monroe converted to Judaism after marrying playwright Arthur Miller.5. During her marriage to Miller, Monroe tried to have a child (she desperately wanted to become a mother); unfortunately she suffered both an ectopic pregnancy and a miscarriage.6. Miller wrote Monroe’s role in The Misfits as a Valentine’s Day gift to her. Although she hated the role, many critics consider it the best performance of her career.7.After her breakup with Miller, Frank Sinatra gave Monroe a Maltese terrier to help her feel better. She named it Maf (short for Mafia Honey).8. The racy flesh-colored dress Monroe wore while singing the infamous “Happy Birthday Mr. President,” was covered with 2,500 rhinestones and was so tight that she had to be sewn into it. It's also the most expensive item of clothing ever to be sold at auction, selling at $1.26 Million in 1999.9.Monroe made Joe DiMaggio promise to leave flowers on her grave every week if she died before him. He kept his promise and had half-dozen red roses delivered three times a week to her crypt for 20 years.10. Playboy Founder, Hugh Hefner bought the crypt above marilyn monroe in 1992 for $75,000, Also one of Marilyn's first public claim to fames was being a nude model in Playboy Magazine.11. Marilyn was extremely vigilant with her facial washing as she was always worried about pimples, She washed her face up to 15 times a day.I'm sure I will think of many more after I post this but these are all I can think off of the top of my head.

What is the most surprising thing you have seen for sale on E Bay?

We once listed the crypt above Marilyn Monroe. Family who had loved one there was willing to move him to an adjacent plot so that the eBay winner could spend “eternity on top of Marilyn.” Sounds odd, but the family needed money and their loved one had a big sense of humor after he bought the plot from Joe DiMaggio in the 1950s. After the family listed the crypt and buyer did not follow through, We relisted it. Here is one story about the first listing - Above Marilyn Monroe's Crypt a Man is Buried Face-DownHere is our story when we relisted it(sadly, it did not sell) -Crypt Above Marilyn Monroe Back on eBay
