Los Angeles, Dec 13 (IANS) Late actress Marilyn Monroes annotated scripts from her last movie are to be auctioned.

She was fired from never-finished comedy “Something’s Got to Give” for being persistently disruptive on set, and she died two months later in August 1962.

Now, a script on which she wrote by hand is going under the hammer, reports pagesix.com.

In pencil and green ink, Monroe gives herself acting prompts (in a scene in which she talks to her onscreen children, she writes “Substitute children – B & J (meaning her children Bobby and Jane) if necessary”) and in another note sniffs at Mel Brooks’s writing, “Needs some funny lines.”
