04/04/1952 Pendleton Camp

Le 4 avril 1952, Marilyn Monroe participe à une soirée au "Marine Corps Base Camp" de Pendleton, à San Diego, un camp rattaché à l'extérieur de la base navale El Toro. Le camp Pendleton en Californie est un camp d'entraînement pour les soldats américains de la Marine. Marilyn se produit sur scène pour chanter deux chansons: "Somebody Loves You" et "Do It Again", qui a failli provoqué une émeute au sein du public masculin (près de 10 000 Marines) de par les paroles suggestives de la chanson, lorsque Marilyn invite un des hommes du public en chantant: "Come and get it, you won't regret it".
Sur scène, elle dit: "Vous autres, là en bas, vous sifflez toujours les filles portant des pulls. Déshabillez-les et qu'obtenez-vous ?" Et elle raconte alors la réaction de la foule: "Pour une raison certaine, cela a semblé les achever. Ils se sont mis à crier et hurler."
Mais ce qui a surtout provoqué l'hystérie des hommes dans la salle, est l'éclatement de la fermeture éclair de la robe de Marilyn (robe du créateur Oleg Cassini).

On April 4, 1952, Marilyn Monroe participates in a party at the "Marine Corps Base Camp" of Pendleton in San Diego, "an outlying field" of the El Toro naval base. The Camp Pendleton in California is a training camp for the Marines. Marilyn is on stage to sing two songs: "Somebody Loves You" and "Do It Again", which nearly caused a riot in the male audience (nearly 10,000 Marines) by the suggestive lyrics of the song, when Marilyn invites a men in the public by singing: "Come and get it, you won't regret it".
On stage, she says: "You fellows down there are always whistling at sweater girls. Take away their sweaters and what have you got ?" And she describes the reaction of the crowd: "For some reason that seemed to kill them. How they screamed and yelled."

But causing almost hysteria is zipper of the Marilyn's dress which has busted (dress from designer Oleg Cassini).

Article by Jerry Jonas published on phillyburbs.com

"I still remember the first time I heard the name Marilyn Monroe. It was the spring of 1951 and I had recently been stationed at the Camp Pendleton Marine Base about 100 miles south of Hollywood.
Returning from noon chow, I noticed a number of my buddies were clustered in a small group ogling a photo in the latest edition of Leatherneck Magazine.
Back then, the Marine Corps’ monthly publication ran a popular “pin-up” photo on the back cover of each issue. A different actress or model was featured each month. On that month’s cover was Marilyn Monroe, the new movie glamour girl, smiling coyly and attired in a somewhat-revealing swimsuit.
While I had no idea who she was, several of my more savvy buddies did. They had already seen her in a movie called “The Asphalt Jungle” and highly recommended that I catch it. I did and was pleasantly surprised at what I discovered.
A few months later, I would get to meet and chat with Monroe. It was a Sunday afternoon, and along with William Lundigan (a popular male film actor of the day, who had recently co-starred with her and June Haver in the comedy-drama “Love Nest”), Monroe was appearing at the Veterans Home and Medical Center in West Los Angeles.
There, she and Lundigan would entertain the hundreds of veterans who were the home’s permanent residents. They included aging and disabled men whose military service dated all the way back to the American Indian wars.
Since active-duty military were also invited to the affair, and I was in Hollywood on a weekend pass, I decided to attend.
Yet West Los Angeles was a fair distance from Hollywood, and like most of my military friends, I was low on cash, couldn’t afford to spend what little I had on public transportation and would have to get there by hitchhiking.
It was worth the effort. Monroe and Lundigan each spent about an hour mingling with the veterans and members of the military, posing for photos and signing autographs.
While Lundigan, who had been making films for more than a decade, was better known, the extremely enthusiastic all-male audience quickly made the pretty and curvaceous young Monroe their center of attention. A few whistled and egged her on and she responded with her famous smile.
In a brief conversation, she struck me as somewhat shy, yet extremely intelligent and personable.
While walking from the facility preparing to hitchhike back into Hollywood, I noticed two large sedans being pulled to the front entrance. Lundigan got into the first car, doing his own driving. Monroe got into the second, an apparently chauffeur-driven car.
With my thumb extended, as a sign that I was looking for a ride, I watched the first car approach and could clearly see Lundigan glance casually at me and nod as he continued by.
Slightly disappointed, my attention now turned to Monroe’s car, which was just leaving the entrance. Apparently reacting to my again-extended thumb, the driver seemed to be slowing down and pulling toward me.
Then, I heard the voice. “Hey, Marine.” It was Lundigan, himself a former World War II Marine. He had stopped and was now backing up. “C’mon. Get in.” He had reached over and had opened the passenger door and was offering me a ride into town.
Glancing back, I noticed that the second car had slowed almost to a complete stop, and the driver was smiling at me and shrugging as if to say: “I tried.” Monroe was clearly visible sitting alone in the back seat smiling, her hand poised in a slight wave.
While I appreciated Lundigan’s kindness, and had an interesting conversation with him during the 20-minute ride, I often wondered what it might have been like to spend that 20 minutes riding with Monroe.
What a story that would have been to relay to my pals back at camp.

Two years later, after a 12-month stint in Korea’s front lines, I was discharged from the military and returned home. I would be gone only a few weeks, when Monroe, on her first and only trip to entertain the troops in Korea, would show up in the area where my former unit was stationed. I had just missed out again.
I never did see Monroe after that afternoon at the Veterans Home, but I did enjoy many of her screen performances, especially in “O. Henry’s Full House” and “Some Like it Hot.” She would marry and divorce my childhood baseball hero, Joe DiMaggio, and playwright Arthur Miller, and have a controversial relationship with President John F. Kennedy.
By most contemporary standards, she would lead a sad and somewhat mysterious life.
On Aug. 5, 1962, Marilyn Monroe would be found dead of an apparent overdose of barbiturates in her home in the Brentwood section of Los Angeles. She was 36.
William Lundigan would continue to star in films and TV dramas for several more decades, and would end his career as a goodwill ambassador for Chrysler Motors. He would die in 1975 at age 61.
Today, if she were still alive, Marilyn Monroe would be 85 years old. Somehow, it’s difficult to imagine her at that age".

Articles de presse du 3 Mars 1961
Voice of Broadway by Dorothy Kilgallen.
Robert Goulet says he’s been asked to play the lead opposite Marilyn Monroe in her next film, “ Something’s Got to Give’’ — but something will have to give before he can say “yes.” He's tied to “Camelot” until October. Meanwhile Marilyn has slimmed down to the point where her chassis never looked better, and anyone who thinks she is unhappy about Arthur Miller’s recent wedding just doesn’t know her. She was alerted well in advance of the nuptials, and couldn’t care less.
La Voix de Broadway par Dorothy Kilgallen.
Robert Goulet raconte qu'il a été invité à jouer le rôle principal face à Marilyn Monroe dans son prochain film "Quelque chose va craquer" - mais quelque chose devra donner avant qu'il puisse dire «oui». Il est lié à "Camelot" jusqu'à octobre. Pendant ce temps, Marilyn a maigri au point où son corps n'a jamais été aussi mieux, et quiconque pense qu'elle est malheureuse au sujet du récent (re)mariage d'Arthur Miller, ne la connait pas. Elle a été bien averti bien à l'avance des noces, et ne pouvait pas s'en soucier.

Marilyn Ends Mexico Vacation -HOLLYWOOD (AP)
Marilyn Monroe ended a Mexico City vacation yesterday returning to Hollywood in dark glasses, mink coat, tan slacks and a gaily coloured blouse. The movie queen wore little or no makeup when she stepped from the plane at Los Angeles International Airport. It wasn't established immediately how long she'll remain in the film capital
or whether she'll be working. She told newsmen she may make a movie, "Something's Got to Give," but she wasn't sure. "It's supposed to be a comedy," she added. Asked about boy friends, she was especially vague.
She said she didn't know whether ex-husband Joe Dimaggio planned to visit her. She denied knowledge, in fact, of the baseball celebrity's whereabouts.
Fin des vacances de Marilyn au Mexique.
Marilyn Monroe a terminé ses vacances dans la ville de Mexico hier, revenant à Hollywood en lunettes noires, manteau de vison, un pantalon beige et un chemisier gaiement coloré. La reine du cinéma portait peu ou pas de maquillage quand elle sortit de l'avion à l'aéroport international de Los Angeles. Il n'a pas été établi immédiatement combien de temps elle va rester dans la capitale du cinéma ou si elle va travailler. Elle a dit à des journalistes qu'elle allait peut être faire un film "Quelque chose va craquer", mais elle n'en était pas sûre. "C'est censé être une comédie, a-t-elle ajouté. Interrogée sur ses petits amis, elle était particulièrement vague.
Elle a dit qu'elle ne savait pas si son ex-mari Joe DiMaggio avait prévu de lui rendre visite. Elle a nié avoir connaissance, en fait, de la localisation de la star de baseball.

Two Little Girls From Little Rock

Vidéo et Paroles
de la chanson
Two Little Girls From Little Rock
interprétée en duo par
Marilyn Monroe et Jane Russell
en 1952 pour le film  Gentlemen Prefer Blonds

>> Video Version du film

>> Video version CD

We're just two little girls from Little Rock
We lived on the wrong side of the tracks
But the gentleman friends who used to call
They never did seem to mind at all
They came to the wrong side of the tracks !

Then someone broke my heart in Little Rock
So I up and left the pieces there
Like a little lost lamb I roamed about
I came to New York and I found out
That men are the same way everywhere !

I was young and determined
To be wined and dined and ermined
And I worked at it all around the clock !
Now one of these days in my fancy clothes
I'm gonna go back and punch the nose of
the one who broke my heart
the one who broke my heart
the one who broke my heart
In Little Rock ! Little Rock ! Little Rock ! Little Rock !

I'm just a little girl from Little Rock
A horse used to be my closest pal
Though I never did learn to read or write
I learned about love in the pale moonlight
And now I'm an educated gal !

I learned an awful lot in Little Rock
And here's some advice I'd like to share
Find a gentleman who's shy or bold
or short or tall, or young or old ..
As long as the guy's a millionaire !

For a kid from a wrong street
I did very well on Wall Street
Though I never owned a share of stock !
And now that I'm known in the biggest banks
I'm going back home and give my thanks
To the one who broke my heart
The one who broke my heart
The one who broke my heart
In Little Rock !


Deux jeunes filles de Little Rock

Nous ne sommes que deux jeunes filles de Little Rock
Nous vivons du mauvais côté de la voie ferrée
Mais les amis qui passaient nous voir parfois
N'ont jamais eu l'air de s'en plaindre
Ils venaient du mauvais côté de la voie ferrée !

Puis quelqu'un m'a brisé le cœur à Little Rock
Alors je suis partie en y laissant des morceaux
Comme un petit agneau perdu j'ai erré
Je suis arrivée à New York et j'ai découvert
Que les hommes sont les mêmes partout !

J'étais jeune et déterminée
A boire, manger et vivre dans le luxe
Et j'ai essayé tout le temps
Maintenant, un de ces jours, dans mon costumes de scène
Je vais rentrer chez moi et casser le nez
De celui qui m'a brisé le cœur à Little Rock ! Little Rock !

Je ne suis qu'une jeune fille de Little Rock
Mon meilleur ami était un cheval
Même si je n'ai jamais appris à lire ou à écrire
J'ai appris l'amour au clair de lune
Et maintenant je suis une fille éduquée !

J'ai beaucoup appris à Little Rock
Et voici un conseil que je veux partager
Trouver un homme timide ou audacieux
Ou petit ou grand, ou jeune ou vieux
Tant que c'est un millionnaire !

Pour une enfant née dans la mauvaise rue
Je me suis bien débrouillée à Wall Street
Même sans avoir jamais possédé d'actions !
Et maintenant que je suis connue dans les plus grosses banques
Je vais rentrer chez moi et remercier
Celui qui m'a brisé le cœur, celui qui m'a brisé le cœur
Celui qui m'a brisé le cœur à Little Rock ! Little Rock !

Sylvie Vartan

mmgirls_sylvie_vartan_bandeauNotre chanteuse nationale Sylvie Vartan se serait-elle inspirée du look de Marilyn Monroe à ses débuts? Marilyn arborait en 1962 un carré court, travaillé au brushing, avec une frange. Sylvie aura la même coupe l'année suivante, en 1963. D'ailleurs, même dans les poses photos, Sylvie, qui accentuait sa moue boudeuse et un petit regard mutin, fait parfois penser aux célèbres mimiques de Marilyn.
A vous d'en juger...

De Marilyn à Sylvie...
