'I'm Marilyn Monroe, And I Want To Smoke Some Marijuana!'

It would take five more years for Sterling Cooper's glass-ceiling-nudging star copywriter to toke away her burning curiosity, but by the late 1950s, the most recognizable woman in the world had already dove headlong into the deep waters of Reefer Falls. This home movie of Marilyn Monroe kicking back with friends, laughing, and smoking a joint has been sitting in a New Jersey attic for 50 years. Of the weed, the filmmaker who sold the footage to a collector for $275,000 said, "I got it. It was mine. It was just passed around. It was not a party. It was just a get-together. You know, come over and hang out."

Warning: You may have to endure an obnoxiously loud woman shouting out her good wishes to Bill "Father of the Bride" Clinton before the NY Daily News's video player gets to the Marilyn footage.

    Am I the only who is sick of Mad Men references anytime there is an article on or footage from the 1950's or 1960s? People can't even seem to talk about movies from the 1950s or 1960 without referencing Mad Men. Hell, anytime there is a pic of a woman with red hair Jezebel makes a Joan reference.
