These photos come from an extra on the set of Bus Stop and believed to have never been seen before.<br />
<br />
A huge archive of candid photographs of screen siren Marilyn Monroe taken by a superfan she befriended has emerged for sale for a staggering £320,000.<br />
<br />
The collection includes more than 550 colour and black and white snaps, some of which have never been seen before, that were taken by fan-turned-friend Freda Hull.<br />
<br />
Monroe was notoriously guarded but welcomed Mrs Hull and her five friends into her inner sanctum, often giving them gifts and even once inviting them for a picnic at her home in Connecticut.<br />
<br />
The archive, which also boasts 150 colour slides, 750 stills from Monroe's films and a collection of personal home movies, is tipped to fetch £320,000 when it goes under the hammer at Julien's Auctions.
