"It really gives you the chills when you read some of the stuff and see the intimacy and the personal nature of it," auction curator Martin Nolan said of the private letters.
Julien's Auction owner Darren Julien has estimated the items could garner more than $1 million at the Dec. 5-6 auction in Beverly Hills, noting that Marilyn's "collectability" has significantly skyrocketed in recent years.
Marilyn, who died of a drug overdose at age 36 in 1962, reportedly willed her trove of letters to her mentor, acting coach Lee Strasberg — who then passed them on to a trusted friend — before she died for safe keeping.
