A 15-minute film clip of late movie legend Marilyn Monroe giving oral sex to an unidentified man was sold Monday to a businessman, who chose to remain anonymous, for 1.5 million dollars, The New York Post said.

The film is a copy of a 1950s black-and-white 16-millimeter clip owned by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, whose first director Edgar Hoover tried but failed to prove the man in it -- who never shows his face -- was US president John F. Kennedy.

The daily said the clip was sold through an intermediary identified as Keya Morgan, who apparently found it while filming a documentary on Monroe, who committed suicide in 1962.

Kennedy, who was rumored to have had a sexual relationship with Monroe at some time, was assassinated in 1963.

The businessman who bought the sex reel asked to remain anonymous, the daily said.
