The Marilyn Monroe Collection

In The News


Scott Fortner is considered an authority on Marilyn Monroe.  When he speaks about her the world listens. His recent blog post refuting rumors of Monroe’s 1960 pregnancy was picked up by news agencies around the world. In 2016 he was granted an exclusive, first-ever interview with Anna Strasberg, widow of Monroe’s mentor Lee Strasberg. When it was announced that an unseen porno of Monroe was headed for auction, Reuters interviewed Fortner about the film, which ultimately did not sell based on his analysis. He analyzed and verified a Monroe costume from the Seven Year Itch, owned by Debbie Reynolds, that had sold at auction for $5,658,000.00.
