Late screen siren Marilyn Monroe's celebrity-filled address book is expected to fetch a staggering $9,500 (GBP5,000) when it goes under the hammer in June (05).

The Some Like It Hot beauty's book boasts the names and numbers of Hollywood's biggest 1960s stars, including Henry Fonda, Frank Sinatra and her ex-husband Arthur Miller.

The phone directory is one of 200 items from Monroe's estate, which will be sold at an auction conducted by Julien's Auctions at Barclay Butera in Los Angeles.
