NEW YORK - A New York photographer is suing two others over Marilyn Monroe images. Bert Stern says the photos were from a series of "unique and irreplaceable images" of the movie star that he took in July 1962 at the Bel Air Hotel in Los Angeles.

Manhattan court papers say Stern loaned them to the now-defunct Eros magazine, but they were not returned.

He says the photos are now held by Michael Weiss and Donald Penny.

Stern is seeking the photos, or at least $700,000 in repayment, plus $1 million in punitive damages and legal fees.

Messages left at Weiss' photography studio and at Penny's home were not immediately returned.
