Marilyn Monroe’s marriage contract to American playwright Arthur Miller fetched more than $14,000 on Thursday, Christie’s auctioneers said.

The ketubah, a Jewish wedding contract dated July 1, 1956, was witnessed in New York by Lee Strasberg, founder of New York’s Actors’ Studio. Monroe converted to Judaism for the marriage, Miller’s second and her third. They divorced in 1961, the year before her death at 35.
