October 1999 Christie's auctioned the belongings of Marilyn Monroe which were being sold by the heirs of Lee Strasberg, to whom Monroe's will left ''all of my personal effects and clothing.''
I slipped over to Christie's new showroom at Rockefeller Center one afternoon to take a look at what was on the auction block. To my surprise no one was there except for this gentleman. He stood in this position for what seemed like an eternity having a quiet conversation with Marilyn.
Happy Birthday Marilyn
