Description

Presented is a  X-Ray of Marilyn Monroe’s chest, ghost printed on the x-ray is the following information, “Cedars of Lebanon Hospital/Drs. E. Freedman and S. Finck/ Name Dimaggio/Marilyn/ No. 50612/ Date 11-10-54/ Ref. By Dr. L. Krohn.” Measures 17″ x 13-3/4″.  Dr. Leon Krohn was Monroe’s gynecologist.

As a radiology resident at Cedars, a young doctor obtained these x-rays when he taught at the school himself, he used these x-rays to ensure that students were paying attention. Monroe was said to have known about the x-rays and their use about which she said; “Isn’t that sweet.”

Monroe’s hospital visit was said to be for her chronic endometriosis- or as her doctor’s described it, “For correction of a female disorder she has suffered for years.” Accompanied by a copy of the x-ray. All X-Rays are technically a reproduction and I’m assuming this one is a reproduction/copy. There are clearly several of these X-Ray around the market but we can’t locate more than 10 of these particular X-Ray that has sold making it still exceptionally rare. A fascinating piece.
