Man claims he has rare nude photo of Marilyn Monroe

LAS VEGAS (AP) ” A Las Vegas man plans to unveil what he says is a rare photo of Marilyn Monroe posing as a nude hitchhiker.

A news conference has been scheduled for Wednesday.

Lawrence Nicastro says he found the photo last year while going through storage items at his home in Las Vegas.

Nicastro was running a service station in the Bronx when a man dropped off a Ford Sunliner convertible for repairs on New Year’s Eve 1962.

When the man didn’t return to pick up his car, Nicastro opened the trunk and placed the contents in storage.

Nicastro’s publicist believes the photo was taken near Pyramid Lake, near Reno, in 1960. Monroe filmed “The Misfits” with Clark Gable in 1960 in Nevada.
