Catalogue de 415 pages en anglais, qui présente les 576 lots mis aux enchères sur deux jours (27 et 28 octobre 1999) par Christie's.

Mon Avis en Bref...  10/10
Les catalogues d'enchères restent des pièces de collection en général destinés aux plus mordus. Ce catalogue reste un must pour tout fan de Marilyn Monroe: pour la première fois, une grande vente aux enchères était organisée autour de la star, perçue sous un autre aspect qu'un mythe impalpable, à travers la découverte de nombreuses pièces jusqu'alors inédites relatives à sa vie privée (bijoux, vêtements, chaussures et chapeaux portés dans sa vie personnelle, son maquillage, ses livres, son piano blanc, ses meubles et objets de décoration) en plus de pièces mythiques reliées à son statut de star (ses Golden Globes et d'autres prix, sa garde robe Pucci, des robes et fourrures portés à des soirées, et la pièce phare restant la robe de Jean-Louis portée à l'anniversaire de JFK). Ce sont principalement des objets et peu de documents papiers (on y trouve ses scripts des Misfits, de Something's got to give entre autres, mais pas de lettres ou de notes personnelles). Ce catalogue est abondamment illustré avec présentation des lots, permettant de découvrir ou de redécouvrir Marilyn sous un autre jour.


1999-10-27-CHRISTIES-personal_property_of_MM-v2-a Livret de la vente et des expositions ""The Personal Property of Marilyn Monroe" organisées en 1999 par Christie's dans différentes villes du monde (New York, Buenos Aires, Los Angeles, Londres, Paris, Saint Pétersbourg, Floride). Ce livret n'était disponible en vente que sur les stands des expositions.
Petit livret de 8 pages qui ne contient donc qu'un extrait des lots exposés et qui seront mis aux enchères. Il s'est bien vendu sur les stands, et reste désormais introuvable (parfois mis aux enchères comme par Julien's en 2020 avec une mise à prix de 25 Dollars, il s'est vendu 256 Dollars !).

Lot 22: CECIL BEATON TRYPTICH PHOTOGRAPH OF MARILYN MONROE
A 1956 photograph of Marilyn Monroe Miller taken by society photographer Cecil Beaton.
In one of her most famous sittings, the actress is posed reclining, holding a rose. The photograph is signed on the mat Cecil Beaton and is accompanied by two page autograph letter signed from Beaton. He describes his fascination and perspective on his subject in detail, "Miss Marilyn Monroe calls to mind the bouquet of a fireworks display, eliciting from her awed spectators an open mouthed chorus of ohs and ahs... In her presence, you are startled, then disarmed, by her lack of inhibition. What might at first seem llike exhibitionism is yet counterbalanced by a wistful incertitude beneath the surface. If this star is an abandoned sprite, she touchingly looks to her audience for approval. She is strikingly like an overexcited child asked downstairs after tea. The initial shyness over, excitement has now gotten the better of her. She romps, she squeals with delight, she leaps onto the sofa. She puts a flower stem in her mouth, puffing on a daisy as though it were a cigarette. It is an artless, impromptu, high spirited, infectiously gay performance. It may end in tears. Equally impromptu is her general appearance. This canary blond nymph has been so sufficiently endowed by nature as to pay no attention to the way she looks. Her hair, her nails, her make-up, have a makeshift, spontaneous attractiveness. It is all very contemporary: Marilyn Monroe conjures up two straws in a single soda, juke-boxes, sheer nylons and drive- in movies for necking (does she not project a hynotized nymphomania?). This, then, is the wonder of the age - a dreaming somnabular, a composite of Alice in Wonderland, Trilby, or a Minsky artist. Perhaps she was born the post war day we had need of her. Certainly she has no knowledge of the past. Like Giraudoux's Ondine, she is only fifteen years old; and she will never die." Cecil Beaton, June 1956.
- Encased in a silver tryptich, engraved on the center panel To Marilyn Monroe Miller Love Nedda and Joshua Logan. Gelatine silver print. 1956. Signed "Cecil Beaton" in red pencil on the mount.

Lot 25: AN ELABORATE HAREM COSTUME (12)

In addition to posing as Jean Harlow, Marlene Dietrich, Lillian Russell, and Clara Bow, she also donned an exotic harem girl's outfit with appropriate hair and make-up to imitate Theda Bara in Cleopatra, with the hope of winning the role that ultimately went to Elizabeth Taylor. The skirt of orange and yellow chiffon scarves is attached to a gold lam bikini bottom with an ornate belt of embossed gold leather encrusted with amber-colored imitation jewels; the gold lam top designed with snake motif cups. Together with matching headdress and three imitation gold slave bracelets and four copies of Life Magazine, including the 1962 issue of the magazine that reprinted with the photographs.

Lot 31: PROMPTBOOK FOR "LET'S MAKE LOVE"
Typescript, 33 pages (of 35, without pages 23 and 25, typed on rectos only). Bound in yellow wrappers (several pages detached and loosely inserted, some pages with creases and other signs of use, covers worn).
MARILYN MONROE'S COPY, evidently used in the filming, with her lines circled in red crayon on many pages, and with very extensive notes in pencil and ink on inside wrappers and throughout the text. Random notes on the front cover include "The situation," "enjoy,""just work for the situation," and "dream sequence:everything you do-do more/Amanda in a dream." On the inside front cover are a number interesting inscriptions, including "using my intelligence [sic]/am not a baby any longer," "she's a person/I am playing her," and (possibly referring to her character, Amanda) "For the theatre/she'll do anything." The inside back cover too contains some interesting self-admonitory notes: "Accept it, summon all strength needed - save myself for other things/don't fight/enjoy when I can," and "Not intense/leads to only tension/relax." Every page of the promptbook is marked up, with Marilyn's lines underlined or bracketed in bright red ink, there are numerous changes in the lines and cues noted, and the margins of each page contain notes in ink and in pencil, evidently made at different times during the filming. Her extensive notes - which reveal Monroe's very serious and meticulous efforts to perfect her role as "Amanda Dell," the showgirl being romanced by an incognito billionaire - are too numerous to do more than briefly sample here. At the bottom of page 3, she writes "what a small world only theatre"; on page 4, where she is describing the attitudes toward women in the theatre, she writes "types like J. Gould," and reminds herself to say certain lines "like a child." National politics are the subject on a note on page 9, where she has written: "What's wrong with the Democratic party letting Nixon win" (the filming took place during the Presidential contest between Nixon and Kennedy). At page 8, she writes "Joan of Arc" at the top of the page, and, in the margin: "Joan of Arc [sic] hears voices - sound the wind makes in Roxbury around the corner of the house- like a human whistle." At the top of page 14, in bold letters, she writes "don't rush" and "scene made by the silences/don't rush on the silences on the lines rush if necessary." At the top of page 33 appear several provocative inscriptions: "If I have to kill myself I must do it," and "acting must/occur not be made/use something to make/this possible" At the end of her lines, on the last page, she records the final moments of the film: "he kisses her vastly." On the inside back wrapper she has written several telephone numbers including that of Dr. Greenson, her Beverly Hills psychiatrist.

At the top of the title, Marilyn has written, rather cryptically, "The effort is made by one's will." With Monroe's pencilled notes on 46 pages of script and on facing blank pages. On the verso of page 6 are several notes including: "play the situation/don't push it,""when she listens she smiles, when she talks, she doesn't," and "talk differently to him than to her!" On the verso of page 8 are the notes "plead for understanding," "try to smile a little," and "not to worry how I say it," and others.

Her notes in scenes 118 to 130 are extensive and quite interesting, and include "walk - tiredness, weariness, inside exhillerated [sic]; "the words are on a thin thread." Next to the lines in which her character cannot see and becomes agitated, she writes "as if all in a dream trying to find myself with these men - am I hearing what I hear."

 Lot 48: SCRIPT FOR SOMETHING'S GOT TO GIVE, 1961
Screenplay by Arnold Schulman. November 22, 1961. Screenplay. Confidential. For Planning Purposes Only.
Confidentiality notice, mimeographed title page and 138 pages script (printed on rectos only). Bound in light green paper wrapper with Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation logo, title on spine (one tear to front cover).
MARILYN MONROE'S COPY, with numerous markings and notes in pencil on 39 pages. On the blank page facing the title she has written:"she maneuvers [sic], she gets him to chase her - he[sic] resents her leaving her husband." On the title page appear a number of notes and page references to the script and the observation "at one point in the story two women like each other but hate the man." Below, she writes, emphatically, "not a story for MM," and adds, "it's for a man and just any two girls except the first 45 pages." On the same page, she apparently records her reactions to the change of screenwriter: "why was the writer who wrote it let go?" and queries "New Producer, How come?" ON page 57, where the stage directions call for Richard and Priscilla to "embrace and kiss passionately," she has added: "but mechanically." On page 58, Monroe likens the towering rage of the forsaken Ellen to the emotions expressed in a song from Lerner and Loew's My Fair Lady, writing "I can do without you, or just you wait, Henry Higgins, just you wait." On page 69, Monroe has pencilled in what appear to be some ideas for the cinematic action. Instead of Ellen banging on the wall of the room honeymoon suite in which Priscilla and Ricahrd are kissing, Marilyn suggests: "she plays a record player very loud - and she does the twist and at certain beats in time with the music she bumps him against the wall." Continuing though, on the next page she writes "Ellen is getting tired her bumps are getting less enthusiastic and sad to put it mildly." Page 87 bears several notes, and the blank page facing it is covered with extensive pencilled notes concerning Ellen's lines, and suggesting a number of lines, including, "Now listen this happens to be a democracy - we're even the 50th state. We are no longer just a possession of the U.S.A." Monroe is caustic about certain weak features of the script: on page 126 in the script, the lines of the character Richard include a particularly awful pun: "You know the old saying - cast your broad upon the waters." In the margin Marilyn writes, "Not funny." On page 130, next to rather silly lines by Priscilla about the availabilty of men, she writes "Not a good speech," and next to Ellen's response to Priscilla, she comments succinctly: "sick." Following the final scene (Richard and Ellen kissing), she writes in large letters: "NO NO NO."

Estimate: $8,000 - $10,000 / Sold: $36,800

On page 7, which is very heavily annotated, Monroe queries Bianca's use of the term "psychosomatic":"would she come right out with this sort of thing? I feel a hint of what she's getting to would be more real"; at another point, Monroe asks: "How can she say this at this point - too early? Gives away what she will be saying later...No! she is not a Nut but a cold Hard dame!...Maybe she could also be one of these 'practical' types - a bookkeeper at heart." On page 7a, Monroe comments on lines of the judge: "This is funny?" On page 12, heavily annotated, Monroe comments, "Ellen is no longer Irene Dune [the actress, Irene Dunne]- and the only people on earth I get on well with is [sic] men so lets have some fun with this opening scene on Ellen plus impact for the picture." On page 23, remarking on Bianca's taking Nick's hand, Monroe writes: "Let's remember she is frigid - We all know what Kinsey found out about most females. This has got to be one in one way or another." On verso of the last page are pencilled notes referring to the character Dr. Schlick, who has a German accent: "Alex Guinness/Oh goodness/on/vot - what/I am so merry." With a loose final page from a shooting script with bold ink notes about Schlick's accent: "Escuse me, plees...good Gude french u/Dat isgude/Dis is cross between D and TH."
