Investing in Marilyn

Dress from ‘There’s No Show Business’ (1954)

David Gainsborough Roberts, whose collection is on display at the Marilyn – Hollywood Icon exhibit, in Bath’s American Museum, talks to Paul Fraser Collectibles:

“So, there’s been enormous interest in film stars in general. It’s a very, very good investment – and Marilyn is probably the best investment in the world…That’s why, with a lot of the small stuff I’ve bought of Marilyn’s, I bought from Ralph Roberts. He was one of the only 14 people to go to her funeral, one of her closest friends. So if Ralph told me that was it, that was it.”
