Marilyn Monroe’s annotated copy of 1962’s “Something’s Got to Give,” was reportedly sold on the auction block Thursday for $25,000.

Photos of the script show that Monroe marked it up in pencil with notes to herself about how she should approach the character, TMZ.com reported Friday.

That movie was never finished after a frustrated director fired Monroe and leading man Dean Martin refused to film the picture with a replacement actress, TMZ explained.

Monroe’s death just two months later on Aug. 5 was determined by police to have been “caused by a self-administered overdose of sedative drugs and that the mode of death is probable suicide,” according to History.com.

According to the Internet Movie Database, footage from the project was included in a 2001 documentary on the blonde bombshell’s life titled “Monroe: The Final Days.”
