«Elle se servait de son corps comme d’une arme» : les derniers clichés de Marilyn racontés par son photographe
> en ligne sur  leparisien.fr

«Je savais que la piscine pourrait donner de belles photos, aussi mémorables que celles de Marilyn avec sa robe blanche qui se soulève», se souvient Lawrence Schiller. Lawrence Schiller/Courtesy TASCHEN and Steven Kasher Gallery 

Lawrence Schiller est, à 85 ans, un vieux briscard de Hollywood qui fut tour à tour photographe, cinéaste, producteur, écrivain… Mais, en avril 1960, alors qu’il gare son break sur les parkings de la 20th Century Fox, à Los Angeles, il n’est encore qu’un jeune photographe autodidacte. Heureusement que ce fils d’un commerçant new-yorkais est fougueux et ambitieux. Car le voilà qui s’apprête, à 23 ans, à braquer son objectif sur le sex-symbol qui fait fantasmer le monde entier : Marilyn Monroe. L’icône blonde tourne alors « Let’s Make Love » (« le Milliardaire », en français), de George Cukor, auprès d’Yves Montand.

Marilyn Monroe was working her way to becoming a superstar of mythic proportions when Robert Street danced alongside her in her most famous musical number, "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend," in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953). The number has since inspired everyone from Madonna to Kylie Minogue, but at the time, Street had no way of knowing it's status would become epochal. Along with the other male dancers in the number, Street was costumed as a stereotypical millionaire, clothed in a tuxedo, graying at the temples, with handfuls of diamonds to tempt the gold digger, Lorelei Lee, played by Monroe. His fellow dancer in the number, George Chakiris, recalled that Monroe was a hard worker who was focused on the number and was in constant discussion between takes with famed choreographer Jack Cole. There wasn't a lot of small talk between the star and the dancers. Nevertheless, Street managed to obtain this autographed photo of Monroe to commemorate his performance with the world's most beloved movie star in her most illustrious musical number. The following year, Street appeared as an extra in another smash hit, White Christmas (1954), and in an ironic twist he also had a small part in Valley of the Dolls (1967), a tawdry (and campy) Hollywood tale in which some of the fictional characters' lives were based on Monroe's personal experiences.

04 et 06/12/1935 - Echanges épistolaires entre Grace et l'Orphelinat

Le 04 décembre 1935, Grace Mc Kee Goddard (devenue tutrice légale de Norma Jeane cette année 1935), écrit une lettre à Mme Dewey, certainement l'interlocutrice (ou directrice) de l'orphelinat de Los Angeles où est placée Norma Jeane (âgée alors de 9 ans) depuis le 13 septembre 1935. Grace demande que l'institution refuse les visites de Ida Bolender à Norma Jeane (qui a élevé Norma Jeane avec son mari jusqu'à ses 7 ans) et cite les noms de ceux et celles autorisées à la voir.

On December 4, 1935, Grace Mc Kee Goddard (who became Norma Jeane's legal guardian this year 1935), writes a letter to Mrs. Dewey, certainly the contact person (or director) of the orphanage in Los Angeles where Norma Jeane (aged then 9 years old) is placed since September 13, 1935. Grace requests that the institution refuse visits from Ida Bolender to Norma Jeane (who raised Norma Jeane with her husband until she was 7 years old) and cite the names of those allowed to see her.

Letter transcription:

December 4, 1935
3107 Barbara Court,
Hollywood, Calif.

Los Angeles Orphan's Home,
815 North El Centro
Hollywood, Calif.

Attention: Mrs Dewey

Dear Mrs. Dewey:

I am very anxious that no one sees or talks to little Norma Jean Baker, unless you have my written permission to do so.

I especially do not want Mrs. Ida Bolender to see her again, as her visits seem to upset the child.

I wish you could instruct every person who is in charge at night or on Sundays, to please see that she is not allowed to visit Norma Jean.

It is quite all right for Elsie or Harvey Giffin, Maude, George or Nell Atkinson, or her Aunt, Olive Monroe, or Mrs. Martin, Olive's Mother, to see her or take her out at any time.

If there is anyone else wishing to see her, I wish you would first get in tough with me here at the studio, Hollywood 3181, or at my home, Granite 4288.

Yours very sincerely,
GRACE MC KEE GODDARD

Traduction de la lettre:

À l'attention de : Mme Dewey

Chère Mme Dewey :

Je suis très inquiète que personne ne voie ou ne parle à la petite Norma Jean Baker, à moins que vous n'ayez ma permission écrite de le faire.

Je ne veux surtout pas que Mme Ida Bolender la revoie, car ses visites semblent bouleverser l'enfant.

Je souhaite que vous puissiez demander à chaque personne responsable la nuit ou le dimanche de veiller à ce qu'elle ne soit pas autorisée à rendre visite à Norma Jean.

Il est tout à fait correct pour Elsie ou Harvey Giffin, Maude, George ou Nell Atkinson, ou sa tante, Olive Monroe, ou Mme Martin, la mère d'Olive, de la voir ou de la sortir à tout moment.

S'il y a quelqu'un d'autre qui souhaite la voir, je souhaite que vous commenciez par entrer en contact avec moi ici au studio, Hollywood 3181, ou chez moi, Granite 4288.

Très sincèrement,
GRACE MC KEE GODDARD


Le 06 décembre 1935, Mme Dewey répond à Grace Mc Kee Goddard, expliquant qu'elle a constaté l'état de perturbation dans lequel se trouve Norma Jeane après la visite de Mme Bolender. Elle accepte la requête de Grace en refusant les visites de Ida Bolender et lui demande de faire un mot à chaque personne autorisée à venir voir Norma Jeane.

On December 6, 1935, Mrs. Dewey responds to Grace McKee Goddard, explaining that she has noticed the state of disturbance in which Norma Jeane finds herself after Mrs. Bolender's visit. She accepts Grace's request by refusing Ida Bolender's visits and asks her to write a word to each person authorized to come and see Norma Jeane.

Letter transcription:

LOS ANGELES ORPHANS HOME SOCIETY
815 North El Centro Avenue
Hollywood 5311

Dec. 6, 1935

Mrs. Grace Mc Kee Goddard,
Hollywood, Calif.,

Dear Mrs. Goddard, -

When Mrs. Bolender was here I told her she should not talk to Norma about her mother.
The physicians have said Mrs. Baker would not get well - that means the child must have first consideration.
Will you please give a letter to each person you want Norma to see and go out with. That would be an extra check. If I just tell the ones who are on duty the names of the ones to see Norma there might be a slip.
Norma is not the same since Mrs. B. visited with her. She doesn't look as happy. When she is naughty she says - "Mrs. Dewey, I wouldn't ever want my Aunt Grace to know I was naughty." She loves you very much.
I'll do as you request. We want to do all we can to make Norma happy, and to please you.
Sincerely yours
(Mrs) SSDewey

Traduction de la lettre:

Chère Mme Goddard,-

Quand Mme Bolender était ici, je lui ai dit qu'elle ne devait pas parler à Norma de sa mère.
Les médecins ont dit que Mme Baker ne guérirait pas - cela signifie que l'enfant doit avoir la priorité.
Pourriez-vous, s'il vous plaît, donner une lettre à chaque personne que vous voulez que Norma voie et qu'ils la prennent avec eux. Ce serait une vérification supplémentaire. Si je dis juste à ceux qui sont de service les noms de ceux qui doivent voir Norma, il pourrait y avoir un faux pas.
Norma n'est plus la même depuis que Mme B. lui a rendu visite. Elle n'a pas l'air aussi heureuse. Quand elle est méchante, elle dit - "Mme Dewey, je ne voudrais jamais que ma tante Grace sache que j'étais méchante." Elle vous aime beaucoup.
Je ferai ce que vous demandez. Nous voulons faire tout ce qui est en notre pouvoir pour rendre Norma heureuse et vous faire plaisir.
Cordialement
(Mme) SSDewey

Florence Foresti en affiche de sa tournée "Boy Boys Boys" 2022-2023

L'humoriste et actrice française Florence Foresti est de retour sur scène, 4 ans après son dernier spectacle (Epilogue, dont la tournée a été écourtée en raison de la crise Covid). Son nouveau spectacle s'intitulé Boys, Boys, Boys, en référence au tube de la chanteuse italienne Sabrina sorti en 1987. Sa tournée passe par le Théâtre Marigny (Paris) du 28 septembre au 31 décembre 2022, avant de partir en tournée dans toute la France dès le mois de mars 2023 et se prolongera jusqu’au mois de décembre 2023.

French humorist and actress Florence Foresti is back on stage, 4 years after her last show (Epilogue, whose tour was cut short due to the Covid crisis). Her new show is called Boys, Boys, Boys, in reference to the hit by Italian singer Sabrina released in 1987. Her tour passes through the Théâtre Marigny (Paris) from September 28 to December 31, 2022, before going on tour throughout France from March 2023 and will continue until December 2023.

2022-florenceforesti2022  

Pour l'affiche promotionnelle, Florence Foresti pose entièrement nue, allongée sur un lit de draps blancs: une référence à Madonna -dont Foresti est fan- qui a posé pour Steven Meisel en 1990 (et un portfolio des séances avec Meisel sera publié dans le "Vogue" italie de février 1991, présentant "Madonna comme Marilyn").

For the promotional poster, Florence Foresti poses entirely naked, lying on a bed of white sheets: a reference to Madonna - of whom Foresti is a fan - who posed for Steven Meisel in 1990 (and a portfolio of the sessions with Meisel will be published in the "Vogue" italy from February 1991, featuring "Madonna as Marilyn").

Florence_Forest-2022-boys_boys_boys-affiche-mdna 

Pour sa séance avec Steven Meisel, Madonna s'inspirait bien de Marilyn Monroe; et cette photo d'elle nue dans un lit de draps blancs était un clin d'oeil à Marilyn Monroe et les séances de Tom Kelley, Eve Arnold et Douglas Kirkland.
For her session with Steven Meisel, Madonna was inspired by Marilyn Monroe; and this photo of her naked in a bed of white sheets was a nod to Marilyn Monroe and the seances of Tom Kelley, Eve Arnold and Douglas Kirkland.

1950s - Cleo Moore, la "Marilyn de la Columbia"

 Cleo Moore
(1929 - 1973)

actrice américaine
La "Marilyn" des studios de la Columbia

american actress
The "Marilyn" of the Columbia's studios

Cleo_Moore-portrait-classic-color-1 
photographie de Charles Coburn


Cleo Moore naît le 31 octobre 1929 à Galvez, dans l'Etat de la Louisiane aux Etats-Unis, sous le nom de Cleouna Moore. A l'époque de sa notoriété, personne ne savait son âge: la presse pensait qu'elle était née en 1924 ou 1928 (sa date de naissance sera fiabilisée lors son décès, telle qu'elle apparaîtra sur sa pierre tombale). Elle grandit près de la ville de Gonzales. Son père, Murphy Moore, est entrepreneur en bâtiment et elle a deux soeurs: (Mari Lea et Voni ) et un frère (Johnnie). Ses parents sont très impliqués dans la politique démocrate qui, en Louisiane, était une passion dévorante pour de nombreuses familles dans les années 1920. Elle fait ses études dans les écoles publiques de Gonzales, joue dans des pièces de théâtre au lycée, puis suit un cours de secrétariat au Pope's Commercial College de Baton Rouge. 

Cleo Moore was born on October 31, 1929 in Galvez, Louisiana, United States, under the name of Cleouna Moore. At the time of her notoriety, no one knew her age: the press thought she was born in 1924 or 1928 (her date of birth will be confirmed upon her death, as it will appear on her tombstone). She grew up in nearby Gonzales. Her father, Murphy Moore, is a building contractor and she has two sisters (Mari and Voni) and a brother (and Johnnie). Her parents are very involved in Democratic politics which, in Louisiana, was an all consuming passion with a lot of families in the 1920s. She is educated at Gonzales Public Schools, participates in school plays in high school, and takes a secretarial course at Pope's Commercial College in Baton Rouge.


En 1945, âgée de 15 ans, elle épouse Palmer Reid Long qui en a 23, [le fils cadet de Huey Long qui était l'ancien gouverneur de la Louisiane et sénateur des Etats-Unis quand il est assassiné en 1935], mais le mariage ne dure que six semaines et fait couler beaucoup d'encre dans la presse: la famille Long, puissante par son pouvoir politique, récupère le jeune Palmer et font annuler le mariage.
En 1945, elle déménage avec sa famille en Californie, son père souhaitant se lancer dans les affaires de l'immobilier et elle est déterminée à faire du cinéma. Elle est nommée "Miss Van Nuys" en 1947 et 1948, du nom d'un quartier de Los Angeles et parvient ainsi à se faire remarquer par des producteurs de cinéma. Elle est élue "Miss Art Plastique" et pose dans une tenue entièrement en plastique pour illustrer la variété des arts plastiques qui sont exposés au California Hobby Show, qui se tient le 27 mai 1949 au Shrine Convention Hall.

Cleo_Moore-1954-LA-01 

In 1945, aged 15, she marries Palmer Reid Long who is 23, [the youngest son of Huey Long who was the former governor of Louisiana and United States senator when he was assassinated in 1935], but the marriage lasts only six weeks and causes a lot of ink to flow in the press: the Long family, powerful by their political power, takes back the young Palmer and have the marriage annulled.
In 1945, she mooves with her family to California, her father wishing to go into real estate business and she is determined to make movies. She is named "Miss Van Nuys" in 1947 and 1948, from the name of a Los Angeles district, and thus manages to get noticed by film producers. She is elected "Miss Plastic Art" and posed in an all-plastic outfit to illustrate the variety of plastic arts that are exhibited at the California Hobby Show, which is held on May 27, 1949 at the Shrine Convention Hall.


 Cleo_Moore-portrait-polo-2Elle se fait repérer par un dénicheur de talents de la RKO, pendant qu'elle assiste à un combat de boxe au Hollywood Legion Stadium: il la persuade de venir passer un casting et elle est retenue. C'est ainsi qu'en 1948, à l'âge de 19 ans, elle fait ses débuts au cinéma en tenant un petit rôle non crédité dans le film Embraceable You de la Warner Bros. La même année, elle tient le premier rôle féminin dans le film Congo Bill, de la Columbia. Ne parvenant pas à décrocher de contrat stable avec un studio, elle tourne ainsi pour plusieurs d'entre eux dans des comédies dramatiques, des films noirs et des westerns tout en menant en parallèle une carrière de mannequin:
- pour la Warner: de petites apparitions dans la série des films "So You..." en 1948 et 1949 (So You're Having In-Law Trouble, So You Want To Be an Actor, et So You Want To Throw a Party), des rôles non crédités dans Le Roi du Tabac en 1950 (avec en tête d 'affiche Gary Cooper et Lauren Bacall) et Gentleman Cambrioleur en 1950 ;
- pour la Columbia: une apparition dans 711 Ocean Drive (en 1950) ;
- pour la RKO: des petits rôles dans Dynamite Pass , Rio Grande Patrol , Hunt The Man et Jeux Clandestins (avec Victor Mature) en 1950; elle parvient à se faire remarquer dans La Maison dans l'Ombre, un film de Nicholas Ray, où elle interprète une femme de gangster condamnée; puis tient un rôle secondaire dans The Pace That Thrills en 1952.

Cleo_Moore-portrait-classic-1-columbia-1 She is spotted by an RKO talent scout while attending a boxing fight at the Hollywood Legion Stadium: he persuades her to take a screen test and she is chosen. Therefore, in 1948, at the age of 19, she makes her film debut in a small uncredited role in the Warner Bros film Embraceable You. The same year, she plays the leading female role in the Columbia film Congo Bill. Unable to land a stable contract with a studio, she works for several of them in dramatic comedies, film noir and westerns, while pursuing a modeling career in parallel::
- for Warner: small appearances in the series of films "So You..." in 1948 and 1949 (So You're Having In-Law Trouble, So You Want To Be an Actor, and So You Want To Throw a Party), uncredited roles in Bright Leaf in 1950 (starring Gary Cooper and Lauren Bacall) and The Great Jewel Robber in 1950;
- for the Columbia: an appearance in 711 Ocean Drive (in 1950);
- for RKO: small roles in Dynamite Pass, Rio Grande Patrol, Hunt The Man and Gambling House (with Victor Mature) in 1950; she manages to get noticed in On Dangerous Grand, a film by Nicholas Ray, where she plays a convicted gangster's wife; then held a secondary role in The Pace That Thrills in 1952.


 Cleo_Moore-portrait-classic-4-1  En 1952, elle a 23 ans quand elle signe un contrat avec les studios de la Columbia: ils ont l'intention de lancer la carrière de Cleo Moore pour en faire leur star de cinéma, à l'image de Marilyn Monroe qui appartient aux studios de la 20th Century-Fox. Ainsi, pour rivaliser avec Marilyn, Cleo Moore décolore ses cheveux en blond platine. Columbia l'a surnomme alors "Le prochain phénomène" et "La Blonde Rita Hayworth".
La Columbia lui offre la tête d'affiche du film noir Strange Fascination, de Hugo Hass, réalisateur, scénariste et acteur avec qui elle retravaillera, notamment dans son film tourné juste après, et qui reste son plus grand succès: One Girl's Confession en 1953 puis dans Thy Neighbor's Wife en 1953 et Bait (avec John Agar) en 1954.
La Columbia a même le projet d'adapter la vie de Jean Harlow en film, en pensant à Cleo Moore pour interpréter Harlow, mais le projet n'aboutit pas.
Outre son succès de pin-up et sa petite notoriété, Cleo Moore adore écumer les soirées hollywoodiennes et côté coeur, on lui prête plusieurs aventures: avec Al Mathes (de 1950 à 1953), avec le pétrolier texan John Owens (en 1953), avec l'acteur et réalisateur argentin Fernando Lamas (en 1954), avec l'acteur Lance Fuller (in 1954), avec l'acteur Tony Travis (en 1954/1955), avec un cadre d'Universal Charles Simonelli (ex de Piper Laurie, qui lui offre un énorme diamant -en 1955), avec les acteurs David Landfield (en 1955), Gary Crosby (en 1955), Robert Francis (en 1955), avec Sammy Davis Jr. (en décembre 1955), avec l'acteur et chanteur argentin Dick Haymes (ex-mari de Rita Hayworth- en 1956), avec l'acteur Brad Dexter (ex-mari de Peggy Lee -en 1956), avec le golfeur et acteur Joe Kirkwood Jr. (en 1956), avec l'acteur David Street, le comique Dick Martin (en 1956), avec le diplomate dominicain Porfirio Rubirosa (et playboy invétéré dont le tableau de chasses compte toutes les célébrités et starlettes d'Hollywood comme Veronica Lake, Rita Hayworth, Ava Gardner, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Danielle Darrieux dont il a été l'époux et même le nom de Marilyn Monroe est évoqué parmi les rumeurs !), une amourette en 1956 avec Joe DiMaggio (l'ex de Marilyn), avec l'acteur Joey Foreman (en 1957), avec le producteur Gary Morton (en 1957), avec un avocat Anthony T. Carsola (en 1959), et Juan Rodriguez (fils du Président mexicain) qui la console en 1959 quand elle se retrouve immobilisée plusieurs mois après avoir été percutée par un chauffard.
Quand elle est aperçue au bras d'un amant le jour pour finir la soirée avec un autre, elle dit dans la presse: "Eh bien, une fille doit manger" !

 Cleo_Moore-portrait-classic-3-1  In 1952, she is 23 when she signs a contract with Columbia studios: they intend to launch Cleo Moore's career to make her their movie star, like Marilyn Monroe who belongs to the 20th Century Fox studios. So, to compete with Marilyn, Cleo Moore bleaches her hair platinum blonde. Columbia names her ""The Next Big Thing" and "The Blond Rita Hayworth".
Columbia offers her the headliner of the noir film Strange Fascination, by Hugo Hass, director, screenwriter and actor with whom she will work again, notably in her film shot just after, and which remains her greatest success: One Girl's Confession in 1953 then in Thy Neighbor's Wife in 1953 and Bait (with John Agar) in 1954.
Columbia even has the project to adapt the life of Jean Harlow in film, by thinking of Cleo Moore to interpret Harlow, but the project does not come to pass.
In addition to her success as a pin-up girl and her little celebrity, Cleo Moore loves to go to Hollywood parties  and on the heart side, she is credited with several adventures: with Al Mathes (from 1950 to 1953), with Texas oilman John Owens (in 1953), with Argentinian actor and director Fernando Lamas (in 1954), with actor Lance Fuller (in 1954), with actor Tony Travis (in 1954/1955), with Universal executive Charles Simonelli (ex of Piper Laurie, who offers her a huge diamond -in 1955), with actors David Landfield (in 1955), Gary Crosby (in 1955), Robert Francis (in 1955), with with Sammy Davis Jr. (in December 1955), with Argentinian actor and singer Dick Haymes (ex husband of Rita Hayworth -in 1956), with actor Brad Dexter (ex husband of Peggy Lee -in 1956), with golfer and actor Joe Kirkwood Jr. (in 1956), with actor David Street, the comic Dick Martin (in 1956), with Dominican diplomat Porfirio Rubirosa (and inveterate playboy whose hunting list includes all the celebrities and starlets of Hollywood like Veronica Lake, Rita Hayworth, Ava Gardner, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Danielle Darrieux of whom he was the husband and even the name of Marilyn Monroe is mentioned among the rumors!), a love affaire in 1956 with Joe DiMaggio (ex of Marilyn), with actor Joey Foreman (in 1957), with producer Gary Morton (in 1957), with a lawyer Anthony T. Carsola (in 1959), and Juan Rodriguez (son of the Mexican President) who consoles her in 1959 when she finds herself immobilized several months after being hit by a driver.
When she is seen on the arm of a lover during the day to end the evening with another, she says in the press: "Well, a girl has to eat"!


 Cleo_Moore-1954-02-14-kiss  Rapidement, la Columbia ne semble plus vouloir d'elle depuis que le studio a signé un contrat avec Kim Novak dont ils souhaitent lancer la carrière. Les films dans lesquelles Cleo Moore joue, rencontrent pourtant un succès honorable au box-office, et sa célébrité provient aussi de la presse où elle pose en pin-up pour les photographes, ou encore le scandale provoqué par sa participation à une émission de télévision diffusée le 14 février 1954 de Chicago, quand elle donne le baiser le plus long filmé (5 minutes et 17 secondes) au présentateur Jack Eigen qui sera viré pour cause de "vulgarité, grossiéreté et mauvais goût" sous la pression des téléspectatrices; elle étudie aussi la danse classique au studio de Nico Charisse en 1954, s'intéresse à l'art et peint à ses heures perdues (des autoportraits) et elle souhaite même un temps se lancer en politique en voulant se présenter au poste de gouverneur de la Louisiane qu'elle annonce le 04 mars 1955 sur NBC.
En 1954, Cleo Moore tourne dans un épisode d'une série télé (The Ford Television Theatre) et obtient un rôle dans un film de la Fox, The Other Woman, encore avec Hugo Haas qui tient toujours la triple casquette de scénariste, réalisateur et acteur.
Retour à la Columbia avec le film Femmes en prison (en 1955) dans le milieu carcéral de prison pour femmes avec Ida Lupino et Jan Sterlin: elle participe l'été 1955 à une tournée promo du film dans 60 villes américaines et crée des émeutes auprès des adolescents qui veulent l'embrasser et arrachent son chemisier; et elle tourne pour la Columbia Over-Exposed où elle joue le rôle de l'ascension d'une petite danseuse de cabaret qui devient une star à New York face à Richard Crenna (en 1956); puis elle tourne pour Universal, un rôle de prostituée suicidaire dans le thriller La potence est pour demain (de Hugo Haas, avec John Agar) pour lequel elle fait une tournée promotionnel dans 66 villes des Etats-Unis.
Elle fait à nouveau une apparition à la télévision dans un épisode de la série Strange Stories (en 1956), puis en 1957, elle tourne ce qui restera son dernier film pour la United Artists dans Hit and Run, encore avec Hugo Haas et avec sa soeur Mari Lea.

 Cleo_Moore-1955-private-paint-1aQuickly, Columbia no longer seems to want her since the studio signs a contract with Kim Novak whose they want to launch the career. The films in which Cleo Moore plays yet meet with honorable success, and her fame came also from the press where she poses as a pin-up girl for the photographers, or even the scandal caused by her participation in a TV show broadcast on live in February, 14, 1954 from Chicago, when she gives the longest kiss filmed (5 minutes and 17 seconds) to TV animator Jack Eigen who will be fired for "vulgarity, coarseness, and bad taste" under pressure from female viewers; she studies ballet at Nico Charisse's studio in 1954; she is interested in art and paints in her spare time (self-portraits) and she even wishes a time to get into politics for a while by running for the post of governor of Louisiana that she announces on March, 04, 1955 on NBC.
In 1954, Cleo Moore appeared in an episode of a TV series (The Ford Television Theatre) and obtains a role in a Fox film, The Other Woman, again with Hugo Haas, who still held the triple role of screenwriter, director and actor.
Return to Columbia with the film Women in Prison (in 1955) in the environment of prison for women with Ida Lupino and Jan Sterling: she participates in the summer 1955 to a promotional tour of the film in 60 US cities and creates riots among teenagers who want to kiss her and tear off her blouse; and she plays for Columbia in Over-Exposed the role of the rise of a little cabaret dancer who becomes a star in New York opposite Richard Crenna (in 1956); then she makes for Universal, a role of suicidal prostitute in the thriller Hold Back Tomorrow (by Hugo Haas, with John Agar) for which she makes a promotional tour in 66 cities in the United States.
She makes another appearance on television in an episode of the series Strange Stories (in 1956), then in 1957, she makes what would remain her last film for United Artists in Hit and Run, again with Hugo Haas and with her sister Mari Lea.


 Cleo_Moore_love-1961-herb_heftlerAprès sa retraite au cinéma, elle reste dans les affaires de l'immobilier. Déjà en 1956, la presse l'avait qualifiée de magnat de l'immobilier. "En plus de sa propre succession de 100 000 dollars, elle dirige une société d'investissement qui détient des biens évalués à 250 000 dollars et se lance dans un centre sportif d'un million de dollars dans la vallée de San Fernando."
Elle est une redoutable femme d'affaires riche et en 1961, elle épouse le promoteur immobilier multimillionnaire Herbert Heftler; avec qui elle a une fille unique, Debra. Ils vivent dans un domaine de Coldwater Canyon à Beverly Hills et c'est là, dans la nuit du 25 octobre 1973, qu'elle décède d'un arrêt cardiaque pendant son sommeil, à l'âge de 43 ans. Elle repose au cimetière d'Inglewood Park en Californie.

After retiring from the cinema, she remains in the real estate business. Already in 1956, the press called her a real-estate tycoon. "In addition to her own $100,000 estate, she heads an investment corporation which holds property valued at $250,000 and currently is embarking on a million-dollar sports center in the San Fernando Valley." 
She is a fearsome rich businesswoman
, and in 1961 she marries multi-millionaire real estate developer Herbert Heftler; with whom she has her unique daughter, Debra. They live on an estate in Coldwater Canyon in Beverly Hills and it is there, on the night of October 25, 1973, that she dies of heart attack in her sleep, at the age of 43. She is buried in Inglewood Park Cemetery in California.


Cleo_Moore-1953-one_girls_confessionCe sont des décennies après, dans les années 1980s et le revival des films de la gloire du Hollywood vintage, que Cleo Moore devient une actrice culte dans le milieu des cinéphiles acharnés et des collectionneurs d'affiches de films, à travers les rôles de bad-girl qu'elle a tenu.
Dans les années 1990, elle est surnommée par les historiens du cinéma comme "La Reine des mauvaises filles des films de série B" en raison de sa popularité croissante auprès des amateurs du genre film noir. Sony Pictures sort même trois de ses films [Over-Exposed, One Girl's Confession et Women's Prison] dans un coffret de DVD intitulé "Bad Girls of Film Noir Volume II".

It is decades later, in the 1980s and the revival of films of Hollywood vintage fame, that Cleo Moore becomes a cult actress among avid moviegoers and movie poster collectors, through the roles of bad girl she held.
In the 1990s, she is named by film historians as the "Queen of the B-Movie Bad Girls" due to her growing popularity with fans of the film noir genre. Sony Pictures is even releasing three of her films [Over-Exposed, One Girl's Confession, and Women's Prison] in a DVD set titled "Bad Girls of Film Noir Volume II."

Auteur/Conception: Olivier Steiner
Mise en scène/Musique: Emmanuel Lagarrigue
Costume (robe): Christian Dior
Interprétation: Isabelle Adjani
Durée: 1h20

Speech: Une femme dans une somptueuse robe noire est déjà là sur le plateau au moment où les spectateurs entrent, on l’aperçoit à contre-jour. Elle se trouve au centre d’une installation métallique qui ressemble à une tour de Babel. On entend sa voix au téléphone, qui est-elle ? Isabelle Adjani ? Marilyn Monroe ? Les deux ? Aucune ?
Qu’est-ce donc ? Du théâtre ?
Une cérémonie païenne ? Une incantation ?
Un appel sous forme de poème en prose ?
C’est l’histoire d’une étoile qui vacille.
