Lot 4053Marilyn Monore 3-D negatives, 1952, sold with photographer's copyright
A collection of 10 color three-dimensional negatives of Marilyn Monroe, taken by Lani Carlson in 1952 at a party thrown by bandleader Ray Anthony, celebrating the release of the song Marilyn, written by Ervin Drake and Jimmy Shirl. Carlson took these photos with a David White Stereo Realist Camera, a dual-lens camera that creates a three-dimensional effect when seen through a special viewer.
Carlson was hired as a sound engineer for the party, and had ample opportunity to take candid pictures of the actress that day. Wearing a hot pink cocktail dress that she also wore in her breakout film Niagara, Monroe arrived in a helicopter and proceeded to pose for photos with Anthony, Mickey Rooney, the helicopter pilot, a dog and alone in front of a blown-up piece of sheet music for the song.
A fantastic collection of Marilyn Monroe images.
In addition to the original negatives and the original viewer through which the 3-d effect can be experienced, this lot includes an Assignment of Copyrights document executed by Lani Carlson which states that he assigns all of his right, title and interest including worldwide copyrights in and to the photographic images to the auction buyer. For more information or to review the seller's copyright assignment document, please contact the department. Each slide 1 1/2 x 4 in

Lot 4055Marilyn Monroe telegram to director George Cukor, 1962
Western Union telegram stamped June 8, 1862: "Dear George. Please believe me it was not my doing. I had so looked forward to working with you. Warmly Marilyn."
Cukor and Monroe had worked together on the 1960 musical, Let's Make Love. Cukor admired Monroe's star quality and gift for comedy, but found her to be difficult, to say the least. Nonetheless, he signed on again two years later for what would be Monroe's final project: the never completed Something's Got To Give, a remake of the screwball comedy, My Favorite Wife. During filming of the latter, Monroe was frequently absent from the set or held up filming when she was there with her erratic work habits. She also left California in May to travel to New York and sing her infamous rendition of "Happy Birthday" to JFK. When Cukor had shot every scene not containing Monroe, and when she still did not appear on set, 20th Century Fox famously fired her on the morning of June 8, 1962. After receiving the news, Monroe sent this apologetic telegram to Cukor, but it made no difference. Less than two months later, she was found dead in her Brentwood home.

Estimate: US$300 - 500
