Lot 176: MARILYN MONROE FREE ASSOCIATION NOTES
 Four pages torn from an Italian agenda, dating between 1955 and 1956. It is believed that the pages correspond to Monroe's work with Dr. Hohenberg in which she began practicing self-analysis and working on her repressed memories. The notations in pencil jump from one topic to the next, wandering around the physical pages themselves and even passing from one page to the next and then back again. It is difficult to follow, but the topics include examining her childhood need to lie to her teacher, her physical insecurities, self-conscious thoughts of what others think of her drinking, speculation that "Peter" is capable of violence and possibly gay as well as a touching passage about Arthur Miller: "I am so concerned/ about protecting Arthur/ I love him-and he is the/ only person-human being I have/ ever known that I could love not only/ as a man to which I am attracted to practically/ out of my senses about-but he is the only/ person-as another human being that I trust as/ much as myself-because when I do trust my-/ self (about certain things) I do fully, and I/ do about him also." Another revealing passage reads in part, "… fear to touch my own body/ after Buddy (I started to write Bad instead of Buddy-/ slip in writing?)/ because A.I. punished me/ with fear and whipped me-/ ‘The bad part of my body’ she said-/ must never touch myself/ there or let anyone." It is believed that "A.I." refers to Aunt Ida Martin, a foster mother who punished Monroe as a child, possibly after a sexual abuse incident, with the "Buddy" mentioned here.

Lot 189: MARILYN MONROE HANDWRITTEN NOTE
 A handwritten note on unlined paper, annotated “for Kris,” dated September 9, most likely used as a reminder for Monroe to discuss the noted issue with her psychoanalyst, Dr. Marianne Kris. The note reads "Remember, somehow, how Mother always tried to get me to 'go out' as though she felt I were too unadventurous. She wanted me even to show a cruelty toward woman [sic]. This in my teens. In return, I showed her that I was faithful to her. Also written on the note is the passage “Jane’s 10th Birthday on 7th same year,” obviously regarding Jane Miller, Arthur Miller’s daughter, who was born on September 7."

Lot 204: MARILYN MONROE HANDWRITTEN LETTER TO DR. HOHENBERG
 A single sheet of lined paper from a six-ring agenda, with a draft of a letter written, on two sides, to Monroe's psychoanalyst, Dr. Hohenberg, 1956. The letter skips through many topics and references Monroe's difficulties in breaking ties with her former acting coach, Natasha Lytess, and her optimism in beginning to work with Paula Strasberg. She is also buoyant in her mention of Arthur Miller, stating, "Arthur writes me every day-at/ least it gives me air to/ breathe-I can't get used to the fact/ that he loves me and I keep waiting/ for him to stop loving me-though I/ hope he never will-but I keep telling/ myself-who knows?"

Lot 205: MARILYN MONROE TYPED LETTER TO DR. RALPH GREENSON
 A vintage file copy of a six-page typed letter from Monroe to Dr. Ralph Greenson, the California-based psychiatrist who treated Monroe in the period leading up to her death. This deeply emotional letter, dated March 2, 1961, was written while Monroe was staying at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center for three weeks of recuperation following her stay at New York’s Payne Whitney Psychiatric Clinic. The letter is done as a stream of conscious recollection of Payne Whitney.
Passages in the letter include:
There was no empathy at Payne-Whitney — it had a very bad effect — they asked me after putting me in a 'cell' (I mean cement blocks and all) for very disturbed depressed patients (except I felt I was in some kind of prison for a crime I hadn’t committed. The inhumanity there I found archaic. They asked me why I wasn’t happy there (everything was under lock and key; things like electric lights, dresser drawers, bathrooms, closets, bars concealed on the windows — the doors have windows so patients can be visible all the time, also, the violence and markings still remain on the walls from former patients). I answered: 'Well, I’d have to be nuts if I like it here.'"
I sat on the bed trying to figure if I was given this situation in an acting improvisation what would I do. So I figured, it’s a squeaky wheel that gets the grease. I admit it was a loud squeak but I got the idea from a movie I made once called Don’t Bother to Knock. I picked up a light-weight chair and slammed it, and it was hard to do because I had never broken anything in my life — against the glass intentionally. It took a lot of banging to get even a small piece of glass – so I went over with the glass concealed in my hand and sat quietly on the bed waiting for them to come in. They did, and I said to them 'If you are going to treat me like a nut I’ll act like a nut.' I admit the next thing is corny but I really did it in the movie except it was with a razor blade. I indicated if they didn’t let me out I would harm myself — the furthest thing from my mind at that moment since you know Dr. Greenson I’m an actress and would never intentionally mark or mar myself. I’m just that vain.”
The letter also takes several sentimental turns with Monroe fondly referencing Joe DiMaggio and Yves Montand. Monroe closed the letter with “I think I had better stop because you have other things to do but thanks for listening for a while. Marilyn M.”

Lot 206: MARILYN MONROE HANDWRITTEN INTERVIEW NOTES
Three unlined oversize pages containing answers to a reporter's interview questions in preparation for a press interview. She writes her numbered responses in blue ink and pencil. Answer number 11 explains her stay at the Payne Whitney clinic, writing, "Payne Whitney gives me a pain/ It was obviously an error of judgment to place me in Payne Whit. and the doctor/ who recommended realized it and tried to rectify it. What my condition warranted/ was the rest and care I got [at] Presbyterian Hospital." Number 19 states, "[M]y sleep depends on my state of satisfaction and that varies with my life-my dreams/ are too intimate to be revealed in public/ My nightmare is the H Bomb."

Noyes Real Estate Company dated November 15, 1961, addressed to Miss Marjorie Stengel, Monroe’s secretary, at Marilyn Monroe Productions, Incorporated, 444 East 57th Street, New York, stating, “I am enclosing herewith Photostats which I had made of the drawings adding a stairway which would include all or half of the third floor with the duplex garden apartments. These sketches may be somewhat confusing, but I could easily explain them if you would like to have me do so,” together with six Photostat copies of original architectural drawings for the redesign of an apartment located at 241 East 61st Street in New York. The drawings go into great detail as to the redesign of the apartment, with space for an art studio and specific notes stating, “This could be another bedroom or boudoir, or health studio with 'massage' table, 'chaise lounge,' private living room…or…with numerous 'closets.'”
Interestingly, these architectural drawings from November 1961 imply that Monroe was considering relocating from the home she shared with husband Arthur Miller on East 57th Street to a three-story apartment on East 61st Street. Monroe and Miller divorced earlier in 1961. Even more interesting is the fact that, as Monroe considered a new apartment in New York City near the end of 1961, she made an offer on January 12, 1962, on a house in Brentwood, California. She moved into 12305 Fifth Helena Drive in Brentwood in March 1962.

I bless her for this gift, and I write it so that she may have from me the only unique thing I know how to make. I bless her, I owe her the discovery of my soul." Although the note is undated, Miller refers to Marilyn Monroe as his wife to be, indicating that it was written prior to their marriage on June 29, 1956. Although this dedication did not appear in any of Miller's books it was possibly intended to be used in A View from the Bridge, which Miller was rewriting as a two-act play during his courtship with Monroe. Because Miller was not officially divorced until June 1956 it is possible that the dedication was not used due to timing.

The letter instructs Hedda to order more stationery for Monroe from the Chase Press at 247 Park Avenue in New York, "... if the information under 'Stationery' in the telephone book is right." Redmond continues, "I would think about 250 sheets and envelopes would suffice for sometime, but usually it costs very little more to get 500 of each... (I just has a call from Pat Newcomb for 50 sheets of each and that doesn't leave much more on hand in case she again asks me for that amount." The box of envelopes included in this lot is half full and indeed was a box of 500, quite possibly the very order mentioned in this letter written less than four months before Monroe's death.

Marilyn Monroe Auction - 11/2016 - effets personnels 1


Vêtements
Clothes


Lot 15: MARILYN MONROE ROBE
 A cream cotton mandarin style robe owned by Marilyn Monroe and gifted to her personal assistant Vanessa Reis, sisterin-law of May Reis. The robe has seven self-frog closures, an internal label reading “Tuji” and the collar stamped "REIS." Accompanied by a copy of a letter to Reis dated August 14, 1993, in which Ralph Roberts writes, "Reference Marilyn robe and bracelet. As best I recall, late one Saturday afternoon Marilyn and I were in the dining area of the Miller 9th floor suite at the Mapes Hotel. She had just changed into a robe, sitting on one of the chairs and I was massaging her back and shoulders. She showed me a bracelet she'd brought to Reno with thought of possibly wearing it as a (undecipherable) comment for Roslyn. Upon discussing it, she and Paula had decided somehow it wouldn't be appropriate. Just then May Reis entered with Vanessa Reis (the widow of Irving Reis, May's greatly loved brother and film director). Vanessa had come up from LA for a long weekend visit - there'd been some talk of our going out to some of the casinos to do a bit of gambling. Vanessa told Marilyn how lovely she looked in that robe. Marilyn thanked her + impulsively held out the bracelet, Take this + wear it as a good luck charm. I was wearing it during dance rehearsals for Let's Make Love, smashed into a prop, so a stone is loosened. I wish I could go with you, but Raffe is getting some Misfits knots out. And I should go over that scene coming up Monday.' They left. Marilyn asked me to remind her to have the robe cleaned to give to Vanessa. Whitey, Agnes, May - all of us - knew from experience we couldn't compliment Marilyn on any personal items or had to be very careful. She'd be compulsive about giving it, or getting a copy - to you."

Lot 84: HISTORIC DRESS WORN BY MARILYN MONROE WHEN SHE SANG HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO JFK AT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN IN 1962
 A Jean Louis designed illusion gown worn by Marilyn Monroe at Madison Square Garden in New York City on May 19, 1962, at a Democratic fundraiser and 45th birthday celebration for President John F. Kennedy.
Early in 1962, Monroe asked famed Hollywood costume designer Jean Louis to create a dress “that only Marilyn Monroe could wear.” The nude soufflé chiffon gown, perfectly matching Monroe’s skin tone, was embellished with hand-sewn round crystals, carefully placed since the dress was created with no underlining layer. Monroe wore no undergarments that night, instead relying on Louis’ masterful swirls of crystals in precisely the right places. Under the stage lights of Madison Square Garden, the fabric of the dress appeared to melt away, leaving only twinkling rays of light from the crystals reflected by the spotlight covering Monroe. The gown was designed as a sleeveless column dress with a scoop neck and open back with clear zipper, covered by hook and eye tab closure and a small train at the back hem. Despite the zipper and closures, the gown was so form fitting that Louis later disclosed that Monroe had to be sewn into the back closure. His hand stitching is still evident beneath the lower back hook and eye tabs. Since 1999, the dress has been displayed on a custom conservator mannequin.
In this dress, Monroe sang her unique version of “Happy Birthday” to President Kennedy and a crowd of 15,000 well-wishers. Some have posited that Monroe’s delayed appearance on stage and her breathless performance can be attributed to getting lost and racing to the stage as Peter Lawford joked about Monroe’s penchant for never being on time.
The effect of her performance was far reaching – not only for Monroe but also for American 1960s culture. Monroe’s seductive serenade remains a crossroads of Hollywood and political touch points more than 54 years later. Part of the appeal may be the intrigue: Were Monroe and Kennedy having an affair? Did she just stand up in front of 15,000 people and sing him that song that way ? The performance has taken on a life of its own, outside the context of the gala. While Monroe’s performance is instantly recognizable and the most memorable of the night, it was one of many that night that included Jack Benny, Ella Fitzgerald, Henry Fonda and Maria Callas. However, it is Monroe singing in this dress that is remembered. It has come to epitomize who Marilyn was in popular culture, including the lyrics she wrote herself for the evening:
Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday Mr. President
Happy Birthday to you
Thanks Mr. President
For all the things you've done
The battles that you've won
The way you deal with U.S. Steel
And our problems by the ton
We thank you so much
Everybody! Happy Birthday!
As an enormous birthday cake was wheeled onstage, President Kennedy commented on Monroe’s performance, joking, “I can now retire from politics after having had ‘Happy Birthday’ sung to me in such a sweet, wholesome way.”
On that special evening, Monroe could not have known that she would live fewer than three months. Perhaps she thought another future performance would replace this as the moment that would epitomize her and her life. Sadly, John F. Kennedy was assassinated eighteen months later, and if tragedy had not intervened, this may not have been the singular iconic moment we associate with Monroe and Kennedy.
Although Monroe could not have known that this performance would be the last image of her remembered by so many following her untimely death, she expended a great deal of effort and money to bring this moment to life. Monroe’s financial statements from this period reveal a great deal about the extraordinary amount of money she put behind her performance. Her May 1962 financial statements list a special expense category titled “New York Birthday Salute to the President” with a $5,000 expense, Monroe’s ticket/donation made to attend the event. Expenses also include $1,000 listed as pertaining to the birthday gala for her maid, Hazel Washington, to accompany Monroe to New York. The expense is coded as “business maid, plane fare, salary.” Her last checkbook also records a check paid to Mary Irvine for makeup for “special appearance at Madison Square Garden.” Monroe’s financial statements also list a $300 deposit paid to Western Costume Company to create this gown with matching shoes in May and a payment for the remaining balance of $1,140.33 in June 1962. There were no doubt other expenses involved in Monroe’s appearance, but the ticket to the event, dress, and the expenses listed above total more than $7,000 in 1962, which with inflation would equate to $60,000 in 2016.
These costs do not begin to take into account the cost Monroe paid professionally for her appearance. At the time she was filming Something’s Got To Give, and Twentieth Century Fox executives would not give Monroe permission to leave filming to attend the event. According to some sources, the employees on the crew were aware, in advance, that Monroe was traveling from Los Angeles to perform at the celebration. Whatever miscommunication or machinations there were behind the absence, it became another strike against the actress on an already contentious film set. Monroe’s unauthorized departure was used against her as she was ultimately fired from the film.
The performance that night in May also had an impact on Monroe’s personal life. Monroe biographer Lois Banner, in her book Marilyn: The Passion and the Paradox (New York: Bloomsbury, 2012), asserts that Monroe told the event planners that she would dress discreetly. When viewed under normal lighting, the dress did appear modest, but under the glare of the Madison Square Garden stage lights, the Jean Louis creation magically transformed into a sparkling second skin. The dress and the song were too much for the political dynasty, and according to Banner, that evening ended whatever relationship Monroe and John F. Kennedy shared and severed her from the rest of the Kennedy family. The magic and myth of Marilyn Monroe as legend was certainly sealed that evening in May 1962, made permanent by her mysterious death a short time later. The fact that she remains a contemporary role model and muse all these decades later is extraordinary and a feat achieved by few. Ten years after her death, Elton John and Bernie Taupin penned “Candle in the Wind” about Monroe, repurposing the lyrics twenty-four years later for the funeral of Princess Diana. From Andy Warhol to Cindy Sherman to Richard Avedon and Bert Stern, the art and photography world has always taken Marilyn Monroe seriously. In fact, it was Monroe’s death in 1962 that inspired Warhol to create the “Marilyn Diptych” among more than 20 silkscreen paintings of her, all based on the publicity photograph from her 1953 film Niagara, plucking her from pop culture, forever immortalized as art.

 A three-quarter-length mink coat with bell sleeves, wide lapel, two front velvet lined pockets and rose form buttons edged in citrine rhinestones. Label has been cut from front right lining.
It was and still is customary for furriers to embroider an owner’s name onto a label that is attached to the lining or directly onto the lining of high-end fur jackets. Due to the fact that Inez Melson and her family held this and other furs that belonged to Monroe and her estate for many years in violation of Monroe’s wishes as outlined by her will, we believe that the label, which likely featured Monroe’s embroidered name, was removed from the jacket in an effort to conceal the fact that it was a fur owned by Monroe. The labels cut from these furs have never been recovered.

Lot 32: MARILYN MONROE RHINESTONE BRACELET

The bracelet has eight rectangular jeweled panels, each centered with a rounded faceted glass and linked with square rhinestone. The clasp is embossed with Bogoff. In a letter to the consigner dated November 28, 1994, Ralph Roberts, Monroe’s masseur, writes, “Reference Marilyn robe and bracelet. As best I recall, late one Saturday afternoon Marilyn and I were in the dining area of the Miller 9th floor suite at the Mapes Hotel. She had just changed into a robe, sitting on one of the chairs and I was massaging her back and shoulders. She showed me a bracelet she’d brought to Reno with thought of possibly wearing it as a [undecipherable comment] for Roslyn [Monroe’s character in The Misfits]. Upon discussing it, she and Paula [Paula Strasberg was Monroe’s acting coach and friend] had decided somehow it wouldn’t be appropriate. Just then May Reis entered with Vanessa Reis (the widow of Irving Reis, May’s greatly loved brother and film director). Vanessa had come up from LA for a long weekend visit – there’d been some talk of our going out to some of the casinos to do a bit of gambling. Vanessa told Marilyn how lovely she looked in that robe. Marilyn thanked her + impulsively held out the bracelet, ‘Take this + wear it as a good luck charm. I was wearing it during dance rehearsals for Let’s Make Love, smashed into a prop, so a stone is loosened. I wish I could go with you, but Raffe is getting some Misfits knots out. And I should go over that scene coming up Monday.’ They left. Marilyn asked me to remind her to have the robe cleaned to give to Vanessa. Whitey, Agnes, May – all of us – knew from experience we couldn’t compliment Marilyn on any personal items or had to be very careful. She’d be compulsive about giving it, or getting a copy – to you.” Accompanied by a copy of the letter.

Lot 582: MARILYN MONROE HOME RENOVATION NOTEBOOK
 An extraordinary, blue cloth over board, "project management" three-ring binder kept by one of Monroe's assistants chronicling the purchase and ongoing renovation and decoration of her home located at 12305 Fifth Helena Drive in Brentwood, California. The notebook begins with an information sheet and lot diagram as well as a typed renovation and additions budget for the property totaling $34,877.36 against a purchase price of $57,609.95. The book also contains four pages of phone numbers, including neighbors, utilities, friends, secretaries, and professional colleagues, dated January 20, 1962; a list of the appliances in the kitchen and their cost; three pages regarding furniture and shipments from Mexico; approximately 36 business cards from various contractors; approximately 28 pages of notes on various renovation projects and to-do lists; a page with notes regarding terracing and planting the hillside; seven drawings of exterior floor plan for possible apartment above the garage for a cook; three renderings of options for a table and another decorative element for the home; and a listing of bills due as of August 16, 1962. The last page of the book lists "Moet - Champagne vintage 1952/ et Chandon a Epernay/ Cuvee Dom Perignon - 13.88." The book lists dates that furniture is due to be delivered from various suppliers, many after Monroe's death, as well as dimensions of each room of the home for the purpose of ordering "white India" carpet. It also has estimates to have the pool resurfaced, water heater moved, fountain built, and laundry room and shower expanded for people using the pool as well as notes about decoration of a "play room," fabrication of a new gate, bars for windows, and shelving to be built, among many other things. The notebook makes it very clear that the home was a work in progress at the time of Monroe's death.

Lot 980: BOB MACKIE ORIGINAL MARILYN MONROE COSTUME SKETCH AND BOOK
An original Bob Mackie costume design sketch for Marilyn Monroe in her role as Ellen Arden in the unfinished film Something’s Got To Give. The mixed media on board sketch shows Monroe wearing the complete costume suit consisting of a fur-trimmed coat and shift dress.

The sketch is initialed “T.S.M.” in the upper right corner and dated “5/14/62” on verso. Mackie created this sketch as a 22-year-old in his first Hollywood job working as a sketch artist for Jean Louis.

Accompanied by the book Marilyn in Fashion: The Enduring Influence of Marilyn Monroe by Christopher Nickens and George Zeno (Philadelphia: Running Press, 2012) featuring an image of Monroe on set wearing this costume.
