The Associated Press reports that the dress Monroe wore to sing “I’m Gonna File My Claim” in the 1954 movie River Of No Return went for over half a million dollars — $504,000, to be exact. It went to a private buyer in China who must absolutely love the movie — considering she only sings in the for about two minutes, that’s a whole lot of very pretty pennies.

But maybe that’s the sort of poetic thing about this dress. In the movie, Monroe played a gambler’s wife, so maybe this dress represents some sort of final, symbolic, big money win? Watch the dress (and Monroe) in action below.
