Lot 0521: "GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES" PHOTO-SHOOT RENTED BRACELET
A gold-plated sterling silver bracelet, designed by Joseff of Hollywood. The bracelet is composed of series of rectangular wirework links of foliate design, enhanced by brilliant-cut simulated diamonds, joined by fluted triangular shaped links with hinged locking clasp and safety chain, and mounted in gold plated sterling silver.
The bracelet was among a set rented for Marilyn Monroe in a series of Fox publicity photos shot by staff photographer Frank Powolny, used to promote the film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (Twentieth Century Fox, 1953). The bracelet was ultimately not photographed, but the photoshoot produced legendary images of Monroe wearing the racy gold pleated gown designed by Travilla for Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Although the gown was deemed to be too revealing because of its plunging neckline and was cut from the film, Monroe liked it and insisted on wearing it to the 1953 Photoplay Awards ceremony. She also wore it during this photoshoot, together with the rest of the jewelry set, producing some of the most iconic images of Monroe ever captured.
Length, 6.75 inches
PROVENANCE From The Joseff Archives

Estimate: $30,000 - $50,000 / Sold: -

Lot 0958: MARILYN MONROE: "HOW TO MARRY A MILLIONAIRE" PHOTO-SHOOT WORN EARRINGS (WITH MAGAZINE)
A pair of gold-tone floral basket pendant ear clips with faceted crystal beads, worn by Marilyn Monroe in promotional photos for How To Marry A Millionaire (Twentieth Century Fox, 1953). By Napier, no. MMF889. Each clip back earring is designed as a gold-tone flower basket, with wirework detail and sculpted flowers enhanced by faceted crystal beads, and suspended by a gold-tone floret centering a faceted crystal bead.
In the glamorous 20th Century Fox 1953 promotional photo shoot, Monroe posed in the earrings wearing a burgundy satin evening gown designed by William Travilla.
This set is one of two sets made for the photo shoot. Joan Castle had rented two pairs of earrings and other pieces including an engagement ring. One pair never made it back and the other was slightly damaged. This set was the former, which Marilyn had purportedly taken from the set as she was seen wearing them after the film wrapped.
Accompanied by a notarized letter of provenance from the husband of actress Carmen Miranda, as well as a vintage copy of Movieland magazine featuring Monroe on the cover wearing the earrings.
Length, 3.75 inches

A black velvet studio evening gown from the Marilyn Monroe production The Fireball (1950, Bert E. Friedlob Productions), with a bias label inscribed "M. Monroe 1 27 3 0396." The floor-length gown features a plunging neckline front zipper and tie, as well as three hook and eye closures. Also included is a matching black velvet belt and a loose shoulder pad.
Monroe has a very small role in the film, which premiered in Los Angeles on October 7, 1950, less than a week before her watershed performance in All About Eve (20th Century Fox, 1950) premiered in New York. She plays Polly, one of several women vying for the attention of roller-skating champion Johnny Casar (Mickey Rooney). As usual, she stands out as a vixen who loves him only for his fame and success.
The gown is seen worn in a publicity photo used to promote the film and also possibly worn in an early photo session with photographer, Ed Clark (photos available upon request).
Includes a DVD of the film and an edition of the book Monroe: Her Life in Pictures by James Spada (New York: Doubleday, 1982).

Lot 0952: PERSONAL HANDWRITTEN ACTORS STUDIO CLASS NOTES
A sheet of Marilyn Monroe's personal notes from her acting classes with Lee Strasberg at the Actors Studio in New York, NY, handwritten in pencil on stationery from The Towers of The Waldorf-Astoria in 1955 (Monroe took Actors Studio classes with Strasberg between April and September 1955).
The opening salutation and start of the letter "Dear Art" has been scratched out. The notes begin with Monroe quoting something said by Strasberg: "I want you all to know that this exercise went on for/ 1/2 hour and her concentration did not/ give way or slip once-and Marilyn there/ will be very few times ever on the/ stage where it will be/ necessary to keep/ such a concentration/ for one half hour/ straight." Monroe then asks herself, "Why did it/ mean so much to me."
On the back she continues to ruminate about class, writing, "Strasberg/ it makes me (him he said) feel badly (and sadly) for you that you do/ things out of fear/ You must start to do things out of strength-/ (my question: where do I get the strength)-he said-by not looking for strength/but only looking & seeking tecnical [sic] ways and means."
This presents a fascinating demonstration of how seriously Monroe took her formal acting training in New York.
This document was reproduced in the book Fragments: Poems, Intimate Notes, Letters by Marilyn Monroe, Edited by Stanley Buchthal and Bernard Comment (Farrar, Straus, and Giroux, New York, 2010).

But he said/ he came back - Tell/ Me - tell me -."

"The thought focus on partner not on word then let go of word"; "don't do with words & voice"; "Let go everything elastic keep the pick up lay on the horse"; and "to be as relaxed let go of mouth speech thought," among many others.

Premières images du biopic "Blonde" de Netflix

Cela fait maintenant deux ans qu'on en parle (voir les photos de tournage en 2020) et la diffusion qui a sans cesse été repoussée, mais désormais cela se précise concrètement: le biopic "Blonde" de Netflix sera disponible sur la plateforme de streaming le 23 septembre 2022.

We've been talking about it for two years now (see the filming in 2020) and the broadcast has been constantly postponed, but now it's becoming more concrete: Netflix's "Blonde" biopic will be available on the streaming platform on the 23rd September 2022.


Netflix a dévoilé la bande-annonce le 16 juin dernier:

De même que l'actrice qui interprète Marilyn Monroe, Ana De Armas, qui publie sur son compte instagram ana_d_armas quelques photographies officielles:

As well as the actress who interprets Marilyn Monroe, Ana De Armas, who publishes on her instagram account ana_d_armas some official photographs:

The FANDOM instagram page even makes an image comparison of Ana VS Marilyn:

Ana_De_Armas-2002-06-BLONDE-comparaison-1  


Inspiré du roman éponyme de Joyce Carol Oates, le biopic relate la partie plus intime de la vie de l'actrice. Telle est la description du synopsis: «Blonde est une relecture audacieuse de la trajectoire de Marilyn Monroe, l'une des icônes hollywoodiennes les plus atemporelles. De son enfance tumultueuse à son ascension fulgurante et à ses histoires d'amour complexes, de Norma Jeane à Marilyn, Blonde brouille la frontière entre réalité et fiction pour explorer l'écart de plus en plus important entre sa personnalité publique et la personne qu'elle était dans l'intimité.»
A noter que:
- Le livre Blonde de Oates est un roman (2000), et non une biographie réelle de Marilyn Monroe et qu'il a déjà été adapté à l'écran (pour la télévision) en 2001 avec Poppy Montgomery dans le rôle de Marilyn (> le Film Biopic Blonde );
- Ce biopic mouture 2022 a reçu aux États-Unis la classification NC-17, soit une interdiction aux moins de 17 ans, un classement qui a donné au film une réputation sulfureuse.

Inspired by the eponymous novel by Joyce Carol Oates, the biopic chronicles the most intimate part of the actress's life. This is the description of the synopsis: “Blonde is a bold reinterpretation of the trajectory of Marilyn Monroe, one of Hollywood's most timeless icons. From her tumultuous childhood to her meteoric rise and complex love stories, from Norma Jeane to Marilyn, Blonde blurs the line between fact and fiction to explore the ever-widening gap between her public persona and the person she is. she was intimate.”
To note that:
- The book Blonde by Oates is a novel (2000), not an actual biography of Marilyn Monroe and that it was already adapted for the screen (for television) in 2001 with Poppy Montgomery in the role of Marilyn (> the Film Biopic Blonde hair );
- This 2022 biopic has received the NC-17 classification in the United States, i.e. a ban on those under 17, a classification which has given the film a sulphurous reputation.

2000-blonde   2001-blonde  


Dans un communiqué de Netflix, Ana De Armas a déclaré que « L’ambition d’Andrew Dominik était très claire dès le départ : mettre en scène le parcours de Marilyn Monroe en adoptant son point de vue à elle. Andrew souhaitait que les spectateurs comprennent non seulement ce que Marilyn pouvait ressentir en tant que star, mais aussi en tant que Norma Jeane. »
« J’ai trouvé que c’était l’approche la plus courageuse, la plus décomplexée et la plus féministe sur la trajectoire de cette femme que j’aie jamais vue.»

In a statement from Netflix, Ana De Armas said that “Andrew Dominik's ambition was very clear from the start: to portray Marilyn Monroe's journey from her point of view. Andrew wanted viewers to understand not only how Marilyn felt as a star, but also as Norma Jeane."
"I found it to be the bravest, most uninhibited and feminist take on this woman's journey that I have ever seen."

14/01/1945 - Lettre de Norma Jeane à Grace Goddard

Lettre de 4 pages du 14 janvier 1945 (datée par erreur en 1944) écrite par Norma Jeane Dougherty (Marilyn Monroe) à Grace McKee Goddard, qui était partie vivre avec son mari Ervin 'Doc' Goddard et la fille de celui-ci Bebe Goddard à Huntington, dans l'Etat de Virginie.
Norma Jeane n'a que 18 ans, mariée depuis deux ans et demie avec Jim Dougherty souvent absent (il est engagé dans la Marine marchande), et elle se sent seule: sans doute est-ce pour cette raison qu'elle s'est payée un manteau, alors qu'elle ne gagne pas beaucoup d'argent. Elle fait aussi des cadeaux à Grace puisqu'elle lui demande si le peignoir est à sa taille.
Elle raconte aussi à Grace que l'usine où elle travaille, Radioplane, a congédié (temporairement, pour deux semaines), l'ensemble des ouvriers et ouvrières (sans leur verser de salaire), certains étant même licensié définitivement.
Elle parle de son retour de l'Est, faisant ainsi référence à sa visite aux Goddard (Doc et Bebe) en Virginie et sa demie-soeur Berniece à Détroit à l'automne 1944.
Il semble que Norma Jeane porte beaucoup d'affection envers Doc Goddard, elle l'appelle "Papa" dans sa lettre.
On ressent surtout l'isolement de la jeune Norma Jeane, terminant sa lettre par son espoir de revoir les Goddard revenir en Californie.

Letter of 4 pages in January 14, 1945 (mistakenly dated 1944) written by Norma Jeane Dougherty (Marilyn Monroe) to Grace McKee Goddard, who had gone to live with her husband Ervin 'Doc' Goddard and his daughter Bebe Goddard in Huntington, Virginia.
Norma Jeane is only 18 years old, married for two and a half years to Jim Dougherty, who is often absent (he is engaged in the Merchant Marine), and she feels alone: ​​no doubt this is why she paid for a coat, although she doesn't earn much money. She also gives Grace gifts because she asks her if the robe is at the good size.
She also tells to Grace that the factory where she works, Radioplane, has dismissed (temporarily, for two weeks), all the workers (without paying them a salary), some of them being even definitively dismissed.
She talks about her return from the East, thus referring to her visit to the Goddards (Doc and Bebe) in Virginia and her half-sister Berniece in Detroit in the fall of 1944.
It seems that Norma Jeane has a lot of affection for Doc Goddard, she calls him "Dad" in her letter.
We especially feel the isolation of young Norma Jeane, ending her letter with her hope of seeing the Goddards back in California.

 Traduction de la lettre:

Ma très chère Grace,
Je suis désolée de ne pas avoir écrit plus tôt, mais honnêtement, j'ai été très occupée. En ce moment, j'ai deux semaines de vacances. (sans être payée).
Jimmie n'est pas encore rentré mais s'attend à être à la maison à tout moment. Il m'a envoyé 100 $ pour Noël alors j'en ai mis un peu plus et je suis maintenant l'heureuse propriétaire d'un manteau de singe Gold Coast. Oh c'est tout simplement magnifique ! J'ai obtenu la meilleure qualité possible parce que je pensais que je pourrais aussi bien obtenir quelque chose qui durerait. (Je ne veux pas que tout le monde sache que ça a coûté autant que ça le devait au départ, c'est mon affaire, tu ne crois pas ?
Tout le monde dit qu'ils ne peuvent pas comprendre à quel point j'ai changé depuis que je suis revenue de l'Est. Au travail, ils disent tous que je suis pleine de vie, de peps et de vitalité. Je n'ai pas travaillé très dur, je me suis juste laissé aller, mais j'ai quand même terminé tout mon travail. Radioplane Company a licencié près de la moitié de ses travailleurs. Mais je suis toujours là bien que je sois en vacances maintenant, comme tout le monde dans mon département, ce n'est que pour deux semaines.
S'il te plaît envoie-moi le livre d'anglais et de grammaire, tu avais dit que tu le ferais.
J'espère que tu as aimé ton peignoir. Était-ce la bonne taille ? As-tu mis des chaussons pour aller avec ?
Je suis contente que tu ne travailles pas chez Wildings parce que tu travaillais juste trop dur. J'espère que tu te reposes beaucoup. S'il te plaît, donne mon affection à Papa et Bebe. Vous me manquez certainement tous.
Dan Hill est vraiment génial, je n'ai pas eu beaucoup de temps pour le voir. Mais je l'aime beaucoup.
J'ai hâte de voir Papa en février. Chaque fois que je vois Dan, il n'arrête pas de demander "Quand est-ce que "Doc" revient ?"
Aujourd'hui, je suis allée à l'église et Mme Dougherty m'a accompagnée. Mon Dieu, je peux à peine attendre que vous reveniez tous ici, j'espère que ce sera bientôt.
Tout mon amour,
Norma Jeane,
PS j'écrirai plus tard

Letter transcription:

My dearest Grace,
I'm sorry I havn't written sooner but honestly I've been so busy. At the present time I'm having a two weeks vacation. (without pay).
Jimmie hasn't come home yet but expects to be home most any time. He sent me $100.00 for Christmas so I put some more with it and I am now the happy owner of a Gold Coast monkey coat. Oh its simply beautiful! I got the finest quality obtainable because I thought I might as well get something that would last. (I don't want everyone to know that it cost as much as it did in the first place its my own business, don't you think ?
Everyone says they can't get over how much I've changed since I've come back from the East. At work they all say I'm full of life, pep and vitality. I havn't been working very hard, just sort of taking it easy but I still get all of my work finished. Radioplane Company laxed almost half of its workers off. But I'm still there although I'm Having a vacation now so is everyone in my dept, its only for two weeks.
Please send me the English and Grammar book, you said you would.
I hope you liked your robe. Was it the right size? Did you get slippers to go with it ?
I'm glad you are not working at wildings because you were just working too hard. I hope you are getting a lot of rest.
Please give Daddy and Bebe my love. I certainly do miss all of you.
Dan Hill is really swell, I havn't had much time to see him. But I do like him very much.
I can hardly wait to see Daddy in February. Every time I see Dan he keeps asking "When is "Doc" coming back ?"
Today I went to church and Mrs. Dougherty went with me.
Golly I can hardly wait until all of you move back here, I hope it will be soon.
All my love,
Norma Jeane,
P.S. I shall write later

Mon bonheur est grand que vous ayez un repos nécessaire. Et belle visite avec mes proches.
Embrasse Bebe pour moi aussi.
Une des joies du départ est le retour, où tous ceux qui vous aiment (et qui ne ne t'aime pas ?) nous attendent à bras ouverts pour nous recevoir.
Ma prière sera - Cher Père, tu es mon enfant, en ascension, ce soir et toujours.
Les lignes suivantes t'aideront à connaître une protection à tout moment.
"Je sais
Là où je suis
C'est Dieu. Puisque c'est ainsi
Aucun endroit ne peut être plus sûr que là où je vais"
Bonne nuit ma chérie
Avec amour et baisers
Tante Anne

25/09/1938 - Lettre de Oncle Art à Norma Jeane

Lettre dactylographiée datée du 25 septembre 1938, sur du papier à lettres à en-tête "International Correspondence Schools", écrite par  "Oncle Art" à Norma Jeane, âgée alors de 12 ans et vivait chez "Tante" Ana Lower (sur Nebraska Avenue, à Los Angeles).
Oncle Art et Tante Allis vivent à San José, en Californie. Ils semblent appartenir à la famille de Grace Goddard et de sa tante, Ana Lower; ils se surnomment eux-mêmes "Oncle" et "Tante" pour Norma Jeane, et semblent bien la connaître par les mots d'affection employés dans la lettre. Ils font référence à leur chien Trinket, dont on peut supposer qu'il est adoré par Norma Jeane.

Typed letter dated September 25, 1938, on "International Correspondence Schools" letterhead, written by "Uncle Art" to Norma Jeane, then 12 years old and living with "Aunt" Ana Lower (on Nebraska Avenue , in Los Angeles).
Uncle Art and Aunt Allis live in San Jose, California. They appear to be relatives of Grace Goddard and her aunt, Ana Lower; they call themselves "Uncle" and "Aunt" for Norma Jeane, and seem to know her well by the words of affection employed in the letter. They refer to their dog Trinket, whom one may assume was adored by Norma Jeane.

Traduction de la lettre:

Notre douce Norma Jean :

Je t'ai promis une lettre, et j'essaie toujours de tenir mes promesses. Etre très attentif à tenir sa promesse est nécessaire à la construction d'un bon caractère, ne penses-tu pas ? Cependant, dans ce cas, tenir ma promesse procure un réel plaisir plutôt que l'accomplissement d'un devoir. V

Tu as appris par nos lettres à tante Ana notre voyage ici et notre nouvelle maison. Nous sommes tous les deux en bonne santé et de bonne humeur, et très heureux de tout. Dieu a été très bon avec nous, et Il en sera ainsi. Trinket a plus de peps que je ne l'ai jamais vue démontrer et est très satisfaite de tout. Il y a un beau parc en diagonale au coin de chez nous où elle peut se défouler sur l'herbe fraîche et verte à sa guise. Elle fait de nombreuses promenades, et il y a des gâteaux pour chiens spéciaux pour elle.

Hier matin, nous sommes allés à San Francisco et, après une conférence avec mes associés, nous avons traversé le pont de la baie de San Francisco. Chérie, c'est la plus grosse chose que j'ai jamais vue à côté de ton oncle Doc Goddard. C'était une belle journée claire et depuis le pont, nous pouvions voir le Golden Gate, la prison fédérale sur l'île d'Alcastraz où sont détenus les prisonniers gouvernementaux les plus difficiles, l'université d'État de Berkeley et toutes les villes autour de la baie de San Francisco. Nous pourrions contempler le parc des expositions du monde - ils l'appellent l'île au trésor - et certains des bâtiments sont déjà terminés. La foire aura lieu l'année prochaine, tu sais. Et c'est l'un des voyages où nous voulons t'emmener avec tante Ana si vous venez nous rendre visite l'année prochaine. Vous apprécierez tout cela, j'en suis sûr.

C'est une belle ville de 85 000 habitants. Ce matin, dimanche, nous sommes allés en voiture dans le quartier où résident les riches - le district de Hester, je pense que c'est ainsi que ta tante Allis l'appelait. Mais même les pauvres ici gardent leurs jardins propres, remplis de pelouse verte et de fleurs. Le pays environnant est le plus beau, les collines sont parsemées de chênes, et dans les vallées, il y a des miles ou des vergers et des fermes maraîchères. Nous sommes ravis de tout.

Maintenant, ma chère, écris-nous et dis-nous comment tu te débrouilles à l'école, et comment tout se passe là-bas. Je suis sûr que tu es heureuse parce que tout le monde là-bas t'aime et veut que tu sois heureux.

Tante Allis se joint à moi dans l'amour et les meilleurs vœux.

Affectueusement vôtre,
Oncle Art

Letter transcription:

Our Sweet Norma Jean:

I promised you a letter, and I always try to keep my promises. To be very careful to keep one's promise is necessary to the building of a good character, don't you think so ? However, in this case, keeping my promise provides real pleasure rather than the performance of a duty.

You have learned from our letters to Aunt Ana of our trip up here, and of our new home. We are both in fine health and spirits, and very happy over everything. God has been very good to us, and He will let Him. Trinket has more pep than I ever saw her demonstrate, and is highly pleased over everything. There is a beautiful park diagonally across the corner from where we live where she can romp over the cool, green grass to her heart's content. She is having many rides, and that is special dog cakes to her.

Yesterday morning we went to San Francisco, and after a conference with my business associates we drove over the San Francisco Bay bridge. Honey, that's the dangdest, biggest thing I ever saw next to your Uncle Doc Goddard. It was a beautiful, clear day, and from the bridge we could see the Golden Gate, The federal prison on Alcastras Island where they keep the thoughest government prisoners, the State University at Berkeley, and all the cities around San Francisco Bay. We could look right down upon the world's Fair grounds - they call it Treasure Island - and some of the buildings are already finished. The fair will be held next year, you know. And this is one of the trips we want to take you and Aunt Ana on if you come to visit us next year. You will enjoy it all, I am sure.

This is a beautiful city of 85,000 population. This morning, Sunday, we drove out into the section where the wealthy reside - the Hester District, I think your Aunt Allis called it. But even the poor up here keep their yards neat and filled with green lawn and flowers. The surrounding country is most beautiful, the rolling hills are dotted with oak trees, and in the valleys are miles or orchards and truck farms. We are delighted with everything.

Now, Dear, write and tell us how you are getting along in school, and how everything is going down there. I am sure you are happy bevause everyone there loves you, and wants you to be happy.

Aunt Allis joins me in love and best wishes.

Fondly Yours,
Uncle Art


Oncle Art écrira d'autres lettres à Norma Jeane pendant l'année 1939 dans lesquelles il l'appelle "Petite chérie" et "Nous envoyons tous de l'amour à notre petite fille." Ces correspondances pleines de tendresse montre que malgré les difficultés liées à son enfance sans parents, Norma Jeane était tout de même entourée de personnes attentionnés, soucieux de son bien être.

Uncle Art will write other letters to Norma Jeane during the year 1939 in which he calls her "Little Sweetheart" and "We all send love to our little girl"These correspondences full of tenderness show that despite the difficulties related to her childhood without parents, Norma Jeane was still surrounded by caring people, concerned about her well-being.
