The Martin and Lewis Show
With Guest Star: Marilyn Monroe
The following transcript appeared in MARILYN: then & now Vol. 2 No. 5
On February 24th, 1953 Marilyn was awarded the Red Book magazine award for ‘Best Young Box Office Personality.’ The presentation was made at the end of Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis’s radio show. Not only did Marilyn accept her award, but she guest starred. What follows is a transcript of Monroe’s portion of the program. Martin opened the show by singing “You’d Be Surprised” in tribute to Monroe.

> Radio Show

Martin: And now folks comes the real special part of our program. The happy time when we introduce our guest star. Course, tonight it’s especially happy because we have Marilyn Monroe, and, as I told you, Jerry doesn’t know about it. So it’s going to be a complete surprise. And . . . ah . . . Shhh . . . Here comes Jerry.

Lewis: Dean, who is it? Dean? Who? Our guest? Dean, who . . . is . . . it? Yes, ah . . . Who?

Martin: Well, I’ll give you a hint. If I was an artist, I’d like to do her in oil.

Lewis: You’d like to do her in oil? (laughter)

Martin: Yeah. Now, who’s our guest star?

Lewis: A sardine? (laughter)

Martin: Ah, shut up! Look, you take the most beautiful legs in the world, the most beautiful figure in the world, and the most beautiful face in the world, and put them all together, what do you get?

Lewis: The ugliest woman in the world!

Martin: How come?

Lewis: You got me so excited I put everything in the wrong place!

Martin: Well . . . This girl has everything in the right place. Jerry, every once in a while a meteor flashes through the skies and falls into the ocean. Fortunately for us, the ball of fire we have with us, as our guest, missed the ocean and landed at Twentieth Century-Fox. So, I give you the two most exciting words in the modern dictionary: Marilyn Monroe.

Monroe: Thanks Dean. That was a very flattering introduction.

Martin: Well, you deserve it Ms. MaRone . . . ah . . .

Monroe: Dean, look at your script. It’s Monroe.

Martin: I’m looking at you, and it’s Ma Rone! I’ll tell you. Right Jer?

Lewis: Zippy doo dah, Deany, darling! Get a load of the dress she’s wearing, Dean. Two arm holes, loosely tied together. Wow wee, what a dress! (laughter)

Monroe: Oh, it’s nothing much just (laughter) . . . just something I threw on.

Lewis: You almost missed, didn’t ya? (laughter)

Martin: Yeah!

Monroe: Gee, thanks boys. Do you really think this gown does something for me?

Martin: Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, but it does a lot more for us. What . . . what is it made of? Silk?

Monroe: As a matter of fact, it’s just plain cotton.

Lewis: Cotton? I’ve seen more cotton at tope of a bottle of Aspirin.

Monroe: I better talk to the wardrobe mistress about this dress. It’s so tight I nearly wore myself out putting it on.

Martin: Poor girl, are you all in? (laughter)

Monroe: Gosh! Gosh, I hope so! (laughter)

Lewis: Gee, Ms. Monroe, Dean and I saw your last picture, Niagara. It was a “Dar:” A positive “Dar!”

Monroe: What was the audience reaction to the picture in the theater?

Martin: After your first scene, they served the Hershey bars in Dixie cups! (laughter)

Lewis: Dean?

Martin: Yes?

Lewis: You better concentrate on the script.

Martin: It’s your turn! (laughter)

Lewis: Oh! (laughter) We had a cocktail party at my house with a bar tender and everything, and we showed home movies of your picture, Ms. Monroe.

Monroe: Now, you’re not going to tell me that when I came on the screen that the ice in the drinks melted?

Lewis: Oh no! That would be silly (Jerry laughs). The bartender melted!

Monroe: Oh, you fellas are just kidding.

Martin: Kidding? Remember the scene where you were kissing your boyfriend?

Monroe: Yes.

Lewis: Right in the middle, my canary threw himself to the cat! (laughter) Ah, Ms. Monroe, if you go out with me after the show I’ll buy you a bottle of perfume . . .

Martin: You’re wasting your time, Jer. Marilyn would rather go out with somebody like me.

Monroe: That’s right. I’m a blonde, and I like to go out with tall, dark, handsome men. You see, opposites attract.

Lewis: Then you’ll love me. I’m just the opposite. (laughter)

Monroe: Look Jerry, you’re a man, and I’m a woman.

Lewis: Now that we’ve chosen sides, let play. (laughter)

Martin: Won’t you give up, Jer. Marilyn prefers me. I’ve gone out with women that would not even look at you.

Lewis: So what? I’ve gone out with women who wouldn’t look at me either.
Monroe: Okay Jerry, supposing I do go out with you, what will we do?

Lewis: Well, we’ll get in my car and drive up Lookout Mountain, and when we get to the top . . .

Monroe: Yes?

Lewis: LOOK OUT! (laughter)

Monroe: No Jerry, if I went out with you it might get into the newspaper, and you know how some newspapers will do anything for a story.

Martin: Well, we do about that type of newspaper, Marilyn, but we can paint a better picture if we dramatize it. So Wallington start dramatizing.

Announcer: The Chesterfield – buy them by the carton players – presents Dean Martin, Jerry Lewis, and Marilyn Monroe in a dramatic newspaper yarn. It’s the story of a cold-blooded newspaper editor who has no friends, but who is loved by Marilyn Monroe entitled . . . So Who Needs Friends?

(phone rings)

Lewis (as Editor): Yello. This is the Morning Hangover. What? Just a minute. I’ll get the pressroom.

(buzzer heard)

Martin (as printer): Hello. Pressroom. What is it chief?

Lewis: Quick, tear out the front page.

Martin: Why?

Lewis: My mother just bought a new garbage pail, and she needs something to line it with.

Monroe: Hello chief. Tell me baby doll, what’s cooking.

Lewis: I am. Get off my lap!

Monroe: I’ve got a head line for ya, chief: Noted Doctor Advocates Fish Breeding for a Hobby.

Lewis: It’s too long. Cut it down.

Monroe: What will I say?

Lewis: Surgeon Urgin’ Sturgeon Mergin’. Come on baby, give us a kiss.

(kissing noises)

Martin (as publisher, opens door): Editor Lewis, I’m the publisher of this paper, and I’m not paying you to kiss our star reporter. Spending all your time kissing doesn’t increase our circulation.

Lewis: But it increases mine!

Monroe: I . . . I can explain Publisher Martin. I just came in to show him my wardrobe the I’m going to take along on my vacation. This is my hunting outfit.

Martin: Hunting outfit? But that’s a backless, strapless gown! You don’t know your clothes.

Monroe: You don’t know what I’m hunting.

Martin: I should have known better than to hire a woman reporter.

Monroe: Just a minute, sir. I’m a newspaperman. I’m not a woman.

Lewis: You’re not? I think we have a scoop.

Monroe: I mean, while I’m on this paper I don’t want to be thought of as a woman. I want to be though of as a man.

Martin: Okay, but I hope we get adjoining lockers at the “Y”.

(phone rings)

Lewis: Yello. Morning Hangover.

Announcer: Hello chief. Remember Detroit Danny?

Lewis: You mean the gangster who was almost beaten to death last week with a bag of wet chicken livers?

Announcer: Yeah. Well, he was shot to death, and I found the slug.

Lewis: I know how Detroit Danny got knocked off. He was trying to blackmail Eskimo Eddie.

Monroe: Chief, if you print that story Eddie will kill you, and I’ll be alone.

Martin: Wanna’ bet?!?

Monroe: Chief, darling, don’t do it. Kiss me, kiss me, kiss me.

Lewis: Ah . . . stop your naggin’! (laughter)

Monroe: I don’t want you to get killed. I’m a woman. I want loving arms around me.

Lewis: Don’t worry. If I’m killed, somebody will come along tomorrow.

Monroe: Yeah, but what am I going to do tonight? (laughter) I don’t want you murdered. Give up your job, and I’ll marry you.

Lewis: What other work could I get?
Martin: Well, don’t worry about it, kid. You’re young. You can always live on love.

Monroe: Yes. Give up your job, and we’ll have kisses for breakfast, kisses for lunch, kisses for supper.

Lewis: Gosh! Kisses for breakfast, kisses for lunch, kisses for supper. Okay, it’s a deal, baby, but I’m warning ya’ . . .

Monroe: About what?

Lewis: Don’t let me ever catch you having any meal.

> Marilyn entourée de Dean Martin et Jerry Lewis

Pour cette réception, Marilyn portait la désormais célèbre robe en lamé doré, cousue sur elle, et conçue par Billy Travilla, le costumier styliste des studios de la Fox. Une robe créée pour le film Les Hommes préfèrent les Blondes, et dont la majorité de la scène sera finalement coupée au montage, et on pense en deviner la raison: lors de cette soirée de la remise du prix Photoplay, Marilyn va déclencher à nouveau un scandale dont l'origine n'est autre que sa tenue, jugée -encore une fois- vulgaire ! Le lancement de cette campagne anti-Marilyn fut menée par l'actrice Joan Crawford qui était présente à cette soirée. Marilyn lui ayant volée la vedette, Crawford s'attaqua à Marilyn par jalousie. D'ailleurs le lendemain, un article paru dans le Los Angeles Mirror rapportera qu' "à côté de Marilyn, toutes les autres (actrices) paraissaient bien ternes".
For the reception party, Marilyn wears the now famous gold lamé dress, sewn on her, and designed by Billy Travilla, the costume designer of Fox studios. A dress created for the film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, and from it the majority of the scene will be eventually edited out, and we think guess why: during the evening of the award Photoplay, Marilyn will trigger a new scandal whose origin is none other than her outfit, judged -again- vulgar! The launch of the anti-Marilyn campaign was led by actress Joan Crawford who was present at this event. Marilyn has stolen the limelight, Crawford attacked Marilyn by jealousy. And the next day, an article in the 'Los Angeles Mirror' will say that "next to Marilyn, all other (actresses) seemed very dull."

Bien qu'il y avait déjà beaucoup d'artichauts à Castroville en Février 1948, le festival de l'Artichaut à Castroville n'existait cependant pas encore. Marilyn était à Salinas et Castroville pour promouvoir une vente de diamant pour un bijoutier local et profiter de la publicité pour sa propre carrière.
Tout a commencé quand Jim Seedman et Stan Seedman décidèrent de promouvoir la vente de leurs diamants pour leurs deux boutiques respectives. Jim était propriétaire de la boutique "Carlyle's Jewelry Stores" à Salinas et Stan d'une boutique à Hollywood. Ils étaient partenaires dans les deux bijouteries. Stan apprit par un vendeur de diamants de Los Angeles, qui avait travaillé à temps partiel pour la promotion de star de cinéma, qu'ils pouvaient louer les services d'une jeune starlette pour cette campagne publicitaire. Ils optèrent pour le choix d'une starlette nommée Doreen Nash mais celle-ci annula son engagement à la dernière minute. Ainsi ils se tournèrent vers une autre jeune starlette du nom de scène "Marilyn Monroe".
Stan l'amena pour une semaine à Salinas pour la promotion de leur vente de diamants. Elle résida au vieil hôtel Jeffery. Les choses évoluèrent assez vite dans leur travail si bien qu'ils se retrouvèrent à avoir une journée de libre le jeudi. Stan est allé à la réunion du jeudi des Kiwanis à Salinas et se retrouva assis à côté de Randy Barsotti, le directeur de la locale Bank of America. Stan lui raconta qu'il était l'hôte d'une starlette et qu'ils avaient une journée de libre. Randy suggéra qu'ils se rendent chez un ami photographe Cal Choke pour une séance photos. C'est à ce moment là que Randy eut l'idée de la surnommer "la Reine de l'Artichaut" (Artichoke Queen) !
Seedman se souvient de la visite de Miss Monroe et de son impact sur la petite ville. Les artichauts étaient beaux mais la jeune Marilyn les dépassait ! Le premier magasin commanda 200 photos de Miss Monroe pour une séance de signature d'autographes au magasin de Main Street mais leur nombre se révéla rapidement insuffisant par l'afflux de fans qui comprenait les écoliers et les jeunes mères de famille. "Nous ne savions pas que cela partirait aussi vite" s'exclama Seedman. Beaucoup plus de photos furent commandées et "avant la fin de la semaine, il en avait été distribuée plus de 1000". Personne aujourd'hui encore ne peut dire combien de diamants ont été vendus mais la publicité sur la Reine de l'Artichaut demeure le plus grand évènement.
Miss Monroe a attiré une foule si importante pour la petite ville de Salinas qu'il a fallu avoir recours à deux policiers devant le magasin pour contrôler la densité de la foule. "Nous n'avons jamais été aussi entassés dans le magasin" admis Seedman impressionné. Avant les artichauts étaient souvent ignorés des étals des épiciers puis soudain, ils ont eu du succès ! 

Although there were already a lot of artichokes in Castroville in February 1948, however, the Artichoke festival in Castroville  didn't yet exist. Marilyn was in Salinas and Castroville to promote the sale of diamond for a local jeweler and enjoy the publicity for his own career.
It all started when Jim and Stan Seedman decided to promote the sale of their diamonds for their two respective shops. Jim was the owner of the shop "Carlyle's Jewelry Stores" in Salinas and Stan has a shop in Hollywood. They were partners in both jewelers. Stan learned from a diamond seller in Los Angeles, who worked part-time for the promotion of movie star, that they could hire the services of a young starlet for this campaign. They opted for the choice of a starlet named Doreen Nash but she canceled her commitment at the last minute. So they turned to another young starlet stage name "Marilyn Monroe".
Stan took her for a week in Salinas to promote the sale of diamonds. She resided at the old hotel Jeffery. Things evolved quickly in their work so they found themselves to have a day off on Thursday. Stan went to the Kiwanis Thursday' meeting in Salinas and found himself sitting next to Randy Barsotti, the director of the local Bank of America. Stan told him he was the host of a starlet and they had a free day. Randy suggested they go to a photographer friend Cal Choke for a photoshoot sitting. It was at that time that Randy had the idea of ​​the nickname "Artichoke Queen" !
Seedman remembers the visit of Miss Monroe and its impact on the town. Artichokes were beautiful but the young Marilyn exceeded them ! The first shop ordered 200 photos of Miss Monroe for a signing autographs at the Main Street store but their numbers quickly proved insufficient by the influx of fans that included schoolchildren and young mothers. "We didn't know it would go so fast !",  exclaimed Seedman. Many more photos were commissioned and "before the end of the week, it was distributed more over 1000." Nobody today can say how many diamonds were sold but advertising Artichoke Queen remains the largest event.
Miss Monroe has attracted such a large crowd to the small town of Salinas that he had to use two policemen in front of the store to control the density of the crowd. "We have never been crammed into the store" admitted Seedman impressed. Before that event, artichokes were often ignored in the grocers' shops and then suddenly they were successful !

5/03/1962 Soirée des Golden Globes 1

1/ Remise du prix

1962_golden_globes_award_1Le 5 mars 1962, Marilyn Monroe reçoit le "Golden Globe" de "L'actrice préférée dans le monde durant l'année 1961" ("The World Film Favs") à la 19ème cérémonie des Golden Globes Awards. Les Golden Globes sont des trophées remis chaque année par "l'association hollywoodienne de la presse étrangère" ("The Hollywood Foreign Press Association") depuis 1944. Ils récompensent les meilleurs films, les meilleures œuvres de fiction télévisuelles et les meilleurs professionnels du cinéma et de la télévision. Les récompenses attribuées sont souvent considérées comme les prémisses des Oscars.

On March 5, 1962, Marilyn Monroe receives the "Golden Globe" from "The World Film Favs" for the 'favorite actress in the world in the year 1961', at the 19th Golden Globes Awards. The Golden Globes Awards are presented annually by the "Hollywood Foreign Press Association" since 1944. They reward the best films, the best fiction television and the best professional film and television. Rewards are often seen as the preview of the Oscars.

C'est l'acteur Rock Hudson, chargé de l'animation de la soirée, qui remit le Golden Globe à Marilyn sur scène avant de partager l'enthousiasme de l'actrice dans les coulisses avec l'acteur Charlton Heston, qui fut aussi récompensé par le prix d'équivalent masculin de la catégorie de Marilyn. Marilyn avait beaucoup bu ce soir là, et la star se montra particulièrement joyeuse tout au long de la cérémonie et durant la réception qui s'en suivie; et c'est en titubant qu'elle alla chercher son prix sur la scène: l'émission qui était enregistrée pour être diffusée en différée -quelques jours plus tard- préféra couper au montage le passage où Marilyn reçut son prix.

This is the actor Rock Hudson, in charge of running the event, which gave the Golden Globe for Marilyn on stage before sharing the enthusiasm of the actress in the backstage with actor Charlton Heston, who was also awarded with the male equivalent to the category of Marilyn. Marilyn had been drinking heavily that night, and the star was particularly happy throughout the ceremony and during the reception that followed in, and it is staggering that she went on the stage: the show was recorded for broadcast -delayed a few days later on TV- preferred to cut the passage when Marilyn received her award.

Elle n'a pas noué les bretelles qui devaient être croisées dans son dos et préfére les laisser pendre autour de ses épaules, créant ainsi un effet de décolleté en V à la robe alors qu'initialement, la robe a une encolure plutôt arrondie.
