(AP)  The apparently endless market for images of Marilyn Monroe now extends to inside the bombshell's body. A set of three Monroe chest X-rays from a 1954 hospital visit sold for $45,000 at the Hollywood Legends auction at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.

Julien's Auctions, which sold the X-rays, estimated that they would only fetch a total of about $3,000. Other Monroe memorabilia that sold included a chair from her last photo shoot that went for $35,000.

The auction included items from other actresses, including a pair of earrings worn by Kate Winslet in Titanic that sold for $25,000 and a dress Audrey Hepburn wore when she starred opposite Fred Astaire in the musical Funny Face that fetched $56,250.
