Marilyn Monroe........Worth more Dead than alive ?????

Canadian businessman Jamie Salter has purchased the rights to the Marilyn Monroe’s name and image for $50 million.

He wants to “create products that people actually want to buy” with the Marilyn Monroe branding.

He plans to introduce branded lingerie, handbags, jewelry, fragrances, and maybe even produce a reality show.

Salter says, “We’re not really interested in the trinkets and trash.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good business — calendars, posters and shot glasses — but that’s not what we want to do with Marilyn Monroe.”

This will certainly boost Marilyn Monroe-related sales to the likes of Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley, which make between $60-275 million a year.............Dead............
