(AP) Tens of thousands of negatives of Marilyn Monroe and other stars by celebrity photographer Milton Greene have sold at auction for $1.8 million.


The archive includes 3,700 negatives and slides of Marilyn Monroe. All the material was sold with copyright.


Profiles in History auction house says the highlights included a collection of color transparencies of the Hollywood siren with Laurence Olivier from the "The Prince and the Showgirl" movie. It sold for $42,000.


A group of transparencies of Monroe from the film "Bus Stop" fetched $39,000.


The seller is an American photography collector who purchased the archive 10 years ago. The items came from the Greene estate.


The buyers weren't identified.


Like his contemporaries Irving Penn and Richard Avedon, Greene is credited with elevating fashion photography to fine art.
