Marilyn Monroe's dress goes up for sale on 'Final Offer'

Movie memorabilia can cost a pretty penny -- and then some. For example, the Aston Martin used in the James Bond flick "Goldfinger" sold for $4.6 million in 2010, and Aubrey Hepburn's black "Breakfast at Tiffany's" gown sold for more than $900,000 in 2006. 

But how much would a dress worn by Marilyn Monroe in her never-finished last film "Something's Got to Give" sell for? "Final Offer" answers that question in Thursday night's episode.

Deborah Burke of Stamford, Conn., is the owner of the dress and is looking to sell it for the highest price she can get, and the four shrewd dealers featured on "Final Offer" are chomping at the bit to get their hands on the pretty piece of movie history.

According to Burke, the actress wore the garment just three months prior to her 1962 death, and on the day before she sang "Happy Birthday, Mr. President." So how did she come to own the dress? She bought it on eBay ... for $57,000.

"It's actually a steal for this," she explained to host Michael Kalish in an exclusive clip Discovery shared with TODAY.com.

Watch the clip and see how the four potential buyers reacted to the possibility of purchasing the dress:

Burke may think the dress is worth $1,000,000, but will she get that? Check out "Final Offer" at 10 p.m. Thursday on Discovery.
