A settlement was reached in the fight over seven photographs taken during Marilyn Monroe's "Last Sitting" in 1962. The pictures were among 2,500 erotic shots Bert Stern took of the movie star for Vogue magazine just before her death. Two photographers approached Stern last year to make a deal involving seven film transparencies from the shoot. Stern sued because he believed the items had been stolen. Photographers Donald Penny and Michael Weiss said another colleague found the transparencies in curbside garbage in Manhattan in the 1970s. Under the settlement, nine sets of photos will be jointly produced and sold. (AP)
