NEW YORK. A home movie showing a relaxed Marilyn Monroe apparently smoking marijuana has surfaced, retrieved from an attic some 50 years after it was filmed.

The reel-to-reel silent, color film taken at a private home in New Jersey was purchased by collector Keya Morgan for $275,000 from the person who took the film — who has asked to remain anonymous.

At one point Monroe is passed a cigarette and takes a puff but does not appear to inhale deeply (the person who made the film confirmed that the cigarette contained marijuana). The actress appears happy and relaxed at a small gathering of friends that Morgan dates to 1958 or 1959, based on her appearance.
