An auctioneer asks for prices during an auction of pictures by late celebrity photographer Milton H. Greene, in Warsaw, Poland, Thursday, Nov. 8, 2012. Some 238 pictures by Greene including portraits of Marylin Monroe, along with Cary Grant, Frank Sinatra, Audrey Hepburn, Liza Minnelli, Marlene Dietrich, Paul Newman, Alfred Hitchcock and Marlon Brando, were auctioned off in Warsaw with highest bids reaching 60.000 Polish zlotys (18.700 US dollars, or 14.400 euros) . Proceeds from the auction will go to the Polish state which owns a collection of around 4,000 pictures by Greene that ended up in Poland's possession as the result of a complex embezzlement scandal that shook the country in the early 1990s.
