The grave near Marilyn Monroe and Hugh Hefner is up for sale. One row up and four spaces to the left of Monroe's grave in Los Angeles will be up for sale at auction.

The grave, which will be auctioned, is expected to fetch 400 thousand dollars. Monroe's grave is also very close to Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner.

In the auction organized by Julien's Auctions, Monroe's dress from the movie The Seven Year Itch (1955), the dress she wore at the press conference of the movie The Misfits (1960) and many other clothes will also be on sale.


The first Playboy magazine with the star on the cover, Elizabeth Arden lipstick, Hefner's jacket and silk pajamas are among the items to be sold.

There is a starting bid of $50,000 for the grave site, although the auction house expects the price to at least quadruple. After Monroe's death in 1962, her ex-husband Joe DiMaggio organized a private funeral for her in Westwood Village. Playboy founder Hefner was later scheduled to be buried in a cemetery next to the actor.

In 2009, Hefner told the Los Angeles Times, "Spending eternity next to Marilyn is too sweet to give up." Hefner, who died in 2017, is known to have spent $75,000 in 1992 to secure his place.


More than 600 historical artifacts that once belonged to Monroe, Hefner and Playboy Enterprises will be on sale from March 28 to March 30. According to Julien's Auctions, this is "the first time in history that these artifacts are being sold together".
