BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) -- A Spanish concert promoter has
found no buyers at an auction in Argentina for a 1940s stag film
that he claims shows an underage Marilyn Monroe having sex before
she became a star.

The auction was a flop. Nobody came forward willing to pay Mikel
Barsa's starting price of 2 million Argentine pesos, about
$480,000.

Barsa says it didn't help matters that a spokeswoman for
Monroe's estate was quoted in an Associated Press interview calling
the whole thing a fraud.

He says he's still negotiating with an unidentified buyer at
about half the price he was hoping for. But he also says his lawyer
is reviewing the warning of Monroe's protectors that they are ready
to sue him for fraud and intellectual property violation if a sale
goes through.
