Never-before-seen pictures of Marilyn Monroe

EXCLUSIVE: Never-before-seen pictures of secretly pregnant Marilyn Monroe, who confided to her close friend that her Let's Make Love co-star Yves Montand was the baby's father - not husband Arthur Miller
Article published on 15 february 2017
online Daily Mail

  • Marilyn Monroe's friend Frieda Hull kept the color pictures she took of Marilyn's baby bump private but were sold as part of Frieda's estate last year
  • The pictures were taken in July, 1960 in New York City; Marilyn was 34 years old
  • Marilyn and married French actor Yves Montand began working together on Let's Make Love in February of that year and their affair began soon after
  • The images were the prized possession of Hull, who worked for Pan Am and became close to the star while part of a group of fans known as the Monroe Six
  • Frieda dubbed the pictures  ‘the pregnant slides’ – a reference to a shocking secret the screen siren kept right up until her death
  • Tony Michaels, a friend and neighbor of Frieda's,  bought the images at the ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ Marilyn Memorabilia Auction held by Julien’s Auctions in LA
  • Michaels was told by Frieda that Marilyn  lost the baby. ' It was never made clear whether that was by way of a miscarriage or even an abortion'

Extraordinary photographs purporting to show a secret pregnancy of film icon Marilyn Monroe can today be revealed for the first time.
The world exclusive images of the beautiful Some Like It Hot actress and model were sold as original color slides at an auction in Hollywood in November last year from the estate of well known Monroe confidante Frieda Hull.
But the stunning photos went under the radar, selling for a mere $2,240 with wealthy collectors not aware of their true significance.

Now DailyMail.com can reveal the six unique images were the prized possession of Monroe's loyal friend Hull, which she dubbed the ‘pregnant slides’ – a reference to a shocking secret the screen siren kept right up until her death.
The shots were taken on July 8, 1960, outside Fox Studios in New York after Monroe had completed costume and hair tests for her film The Misfits, starring Clark Gable and Montgomery Clift .

- Monroe had wanted a baby more than anything in the world, but that joy was denied her. She had three miscarriages prior to losing this baby, all of which played out in the public eye

Marilyn and sexy French actor Yves Montand didn't contain their lovemaking to onscreen

The images clearly show a prominent bump from Monroe’s belly which Hull claimed was evidence the star was in the early stages of pregnancy.
And DailyMail.com can reveal the would-be father was not Monroe's then husband, playwright Arthur Miller, it was in fact Italian-French actor Yves Montand – who she met on the set of film Let's Make Love and who she had a very public affair with.

DailyMail.com spoke to Tony Michaels, the man who bought the color slides at the ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ Marilyn Memorabilia Auction held by Julien’s Auctions in LA.
Tony, 56, was a close friend and next door neighbor of Frieda Hull before she passed.
He reveals that Hull had confided in him about Monroe’s secret pregnancy and claims the ‘pregnant slides’ are genuine evidence that she was with child.
And in an extraordinary and tragic Hollywood tale Tony says Monroe kept her pregnancy a secret from the world before 'losing' the baby during a hospital visit.

dailymail-05 
The images were the prized possession of Hull, who died in 2014

Tony told DailyMail.com: ‘Frieda was very proud of those slides and she was very proud to keep them a secret until the day she died.
But she told me the story behind them, that Marilyn got pregnant by Yves Montand.
It wasn’t a guess or a presumption, it was something she knew for sure, she was very close to Marilyn.
As far as she was concerned Marilyn was pregnant in the summer of 1960 and the slides prove it.’

Monroe had wanted a baby more than anything in the world, but that joy was denied her.
She had three miscarriages prior to losing this baby, all of which played out in the public eye. The star suffered with a condition called endometriosis her entire life that caused severe menstrual pain and she also struggled to conceive.

‘I suggested she sell the slides and all her other memorabilia so she could afford a better place to live, but again she refused, she said she would never sell out on her friend of ten years Marilyn.

At Julien’s three day auction the Frieda Hull estate had 187 lots on sale.
Rare items from the archive included unseen color photos of Monroe as she sang ‘Happy Birthday’ for President John F. Kennedy at Madison Square Garden on May 19, 1962 as well as Frieda’s original ticket and program to the gala event; never-before-seen slides of Monroe on location as she filmed the now famous subway skirt-blowing scene for The Seven Year Itch and a large collection of many unpublished photos of Marilyn at the 1955 premiere of East of Eden.

dailymail-07  dailymail-08 
In January of 1960 when she was filming Let's Make Love with Yves Montand  Marilyn's tummy was flat. But by the beginning of July the star has a visible baby bump

In total, according to Julien’s, ‘The Frieda Hull Marilyn Monroe Photo Archive’ included over 550 color and black and white candid snapshots and photographs, over 150 color slides, nearly 750 movie stills, publicity photos and lobby cards, and personal home movies.
Even the camera Frieda had used to take the 'pregnant slides' as well as dozens of other photos of Marilyn - a Mercury II, model CX 35mm - went up for sale selling for a bid of $3,437.50.
Tony said: 'It was amazing stuff, Frieda had 14 Marilyn autographs, some went as high as $14,000.'

The provenance for all the lots – which sold for $433,000 - was simply that they came as part of the Frieda Hull estate.
Tony recalls: ‘Frieda had even gotten permission from Marilyn to get a couple of locks of hair from her hairdresser.
I’m not talking much, just small lots of hair, together the two locks of hair went for $72,700.
She also had a red scarf that Marilyn had given her in there.
But out of all the lots her prized possession was the six ‘pregnant slides’ as she called them.
'She talked about these to me all the time, they were very important to her.'

Julien's auctioneers decided not to mention the pregnancy claims when selling the slides.
As a result the slides went relatively unnoticed and Tony felt it his duty to snap them up, paying just $2,240 - a bargain given the back story now emerging.
Of course, the astonishing claims which will send Marilyn Monroe historians into a flap, cannot be proven - both Marilyn and Yves Montand are long dead.
But Tony's compelling account of what Frieda had confided in him is difficult to ignore.

And today he wants to tell Frieda’s story and how his long time friend was infatuated with Marilyn Monroe.
Speaking from his home in Las Vegas, the high stakes casino croupier told DailyMail.com: ‘I met Frieda over the wall in my back yard around 20 years ago around 1996, she was a neighbor and I introduced myself, she introduced herself and I invited her over for a prize fight.
‘I had ordered a pay for view fight that night and she had mentioned she was a fan of boxing and she came over with a bottle of Jack Daniels and drank me under the table.
She became my drinking partner and we became pretty good friends, she came to all the kid’s Little League games, if they had events, she went to all of them.
She became my kid’s surrogate grandmother because she had no family of her own.’

Frieda was never married and had no children so she ‘adopted’ many of the neighborhood children, including Tony’s two young boys Anthony and Andrew.
She was preceded in death by her brother, Thomas Hull; and her aunt, Elizabeth Hagen, but had no obvious heir when she died.

Tony said: ‘My family became very close to her. Frieda didn’t drive so we would take her grocery shopping or to her doctor’s appointments.
She was very generous, we’d go out to eat and she’d never let us pay for it, she liked to do a little gambling and loved sports, she was a die-hard fan of the Brooklyn Dodgers and the New York Mets.
She was set in her ways and was never going to change her opinion about anything, She was a brutally honest person.

dailymail-10 
Marilyn carried a coat in front of her belly after Frieda took the 'pregnant slides.;

She was very warm hearted, especially to the under dog whether it was children or animals.
She loved Bing Crosby and Judy Garland, but she had an infatuation with Marilyn Monroe.

Frieda is widely known to have been one of the ‘Monroe Six’ – a group of six friends based in New York City who followed the star all over America to take her photo.
As an employee of Pan Am Airlines Frieda was in the enviable position of being able to photograph Monroe on a regular basis.
The group learned of the screen siren's whereabouts by reading movie magazines and asking her hairdresser and would wait outside her hotel or home.

Tony said: ‘Frieda started out as a fan, almost like a stalker, her and five friends.
Then after a while Marilyn would recognize the kids and she came over and asked their names and they started a friendship.
When she would come in to town, for lack of a better word, they would kidnap her, put a scarf on her head and put sunglasses on her and they would go out and do things that Marilyn couldn’t do because she was too famous.
'They called her "Mazzi". It was a code name they had for her, so no one else would know who they were talking about.
She got to be a kid with the Monroe Six, they would go roller skating in Central Park or bike riding, just hang out.

Eventually Monroe came to know each member of the group very well, even inviting them to the Roxbury, Connecticut home she shared with then husband Arthur Miller for a picnic.

dailymail-11 
'I would never, I couldn’t capitalize on Marilyn’s death she was my friend,' Frieda told Tony. Her photos and memorobilia of Marilyn was sold as part of her esate when she passed away

Tony added: ‘To show you how gruff Frieda could be at times, the story went that Marilyn came over and took a potato chip off her plate and Frieda snapped and put her in her place, “don’t you ever do that, I don’t care who you are, or who you think you are, that’s rude, don’t do that”. From then on they were pretty close friends.
Every time we would get together, especially if we were drinking, I’d get to hear all the stories from Frieda.
Marilyn gave her a red scarf at one point and she worked for Pan Am so any time Marilyn came in to town Frieda would run out on to the tarmac and start taking pictures.
I told Frieda, you know you have all this stuff why don’t you sell it, you can get a better place.
But she said, “no I would never, I couldn’t capitalize on Marilyn’s death she was my friend”.

Tony lost contact with Frieda after he divorced his wife and moved out of the marital home, but he says his ex-wife and two sons kept in close contact with her.
The best friend of Tony’s sons, a man named Chris who asked for his last name to be left out of this article, was also close to Frieda and helped her in her dying months.
Chris visited her in the hospice and took care of her house, he did a great job of helping her put and Frieda was very thankful,’ said Tony.
As a result Chris was made the executor of the estate and took up Tony on his offer to help catalogue all her Marilyn Monroe memorabilia.
My kids were in the will as was my ex-wife, I was not. Frieda and I kind of had a falling out.
But I was still fond of her and her death was terribly sad.
'I helped catalogue Frieda’s Marilyn Monroe collection because over the years she had shown me most of it, I knew what to look for in her mountain of belongings.
'The first thing on my list was "The pregnant slides".
'She always called them that, she told me the father of the unborn child was Yves Montand, she told me the story of how Arthur got called away and Yves Montand's wife got called away and they stayed together in a Beverly Hills Hotel bungalow and they had an affair.'
Indeed the affair between Monroe and Montand has been widely discussed over the years.

dailymail-11a 
The camera with which Frieda snapped her pictures of Marilyn

Monroe and playwright husband Arthur Miller were staying in a luxury bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel, while the golden couple of French cinema, Simone Signoret and her husband Yves Montand were next door.
Monroe and Montand were starring in the George Cukor movie, Let's Make Love at the time.
Miller and Monroe's unhappy marriage made it easy for the star to stray.
Signoret famously said of Monroe: 'If Marilyn is in love with my husband it proves she has good taste, for I am in love with him too.'

Production on Let's Make Love, a movie starring Monroe and Montand, began in February 1960.
Soon after shooting got underway, their respective partners Miller and Signoret were called away from Los Angeles, leaving Monroe and Montand alone in Miller's Beverly Hills Hotel bungalow.
On March 8, 1960 Monroe received the Golden Globe Award for Best Comedy Actress for Some Like It Hot.
Could this be the night of conception? She would have been exactly four months pregnant in Hull's July 8, 'pregnant slides'.
In May, 1960 Miller found out about the affair and was very upset - his marriage to Monroe began to crumble.

dailymail-12 
In later years Montand admitted to the affair. 'I was crazy about my wife, but what can you do?' Montand recalled

dailymail-13 
Tony says that Frieda believed that when Marilyn went to hospital for ten days during the filming of The Misfits, it wasn't for acute exhaustion as was claimed at the time, it was for a nervous breakdown and possibly a miscarriage

By August that year they weren't speaking and Monroe moved out of a shared room with Miller at the Mapes Hotel in Reno.
In later years Montand admitted to the affair. 'I was crazy about my wife, but what can you do?' Montand recalled with a very French shrug.
Monroe died two years after Let's Make Love, at age 36.

Tony says he has meticulously researched the time period when Frieda claimed Monroe was pregnant and claims photographs taken at the time show the development of the child between two of her movies.
'Let's Make Love, you can see towards the end that she could be pregnant and she went right in to the The Misfits, Arthur Miller's play that he wrote for her,' he says.
'Then right at the end of The Misfits there's no sign of a pregnancy.'

Tony says that Frieda believed that when Marilyn went to hospital for ten days during the filming of The Misfits, it wasn't for acute exhaustion as was claimed at the time, it was for a nervous breakdown and possibly a miscarriage.
'She just told me Marilyn was pregnant in those photos and I believed her. I don't think she'd tell me that on a hunch, she knew.

dailymail-14 
Speaking from his home in Las Vegas, the high stakes casino croupier told DailyMail.com: ‘I met Frieda over the wall in my back yard around 20 years ago around 1996, she was a neighbor and I introduced myself, she introduced herself and I invited her over for a prize fight

'Frieda believed that it wasn't exhaustion that landed her in hospital, she said it was a nervous breakdown and she lost her baby.
'And all she told me was that Marilyn has lost the baby, it was never made clear whether that was by way of a miscarriage or even an abortion, and I never thought to press her on it.'

Tony says he bought the photos because he knew their history as 'The pregnant slides', while no one else did.
'Now I think that the story needs to be told,' he added.
Tony says he kicks himself that he didn't quiz Frieda more on her time with Marilyn.
She would often share gems of information and fascinating stories with him, more often than not when they shared a drink together.
'Frieda worshipped Marilyn, she loved her. She wouldn't give up anything after she died,' he said.

Frieda, originally from Brooklyn, NY, and just four years younger than Monroe, died of natural causes aged 83 in 2014.
She had retired from Pan Am and came out to Las Vegas where she enjoyed the occasional flutter in the Vegas casinos, loved watching sports and lived a solitary life with her lap dog Bobby, who died before she did.
An online obituary posted locally in Las Vegas read: 'Frieda Elizabeth Hull, of Las Vegas, passed June 22, 2014... She was one of the most interesting, wonderful and kind-hearted people the world has ever known.'
The obituary mentioned her bond with her old friend: 'She was a good friend to Marilyn Monroe and loved sharing stories and private photos of the icon.'
And it ended poignantly: 'She lived a long and beautiful life, dying at 83 years old... She was an amazing woman and I could only hope to be half the person she was. "We love you and you will be greatly missed."'

Lot 78: MARILYN MONROE LETTER TO BOBBY MILLER MENTIONING ROBERT KENNEDY
 A typed, unsigned file copy of a four-page letter on two leaves, letter dated "Noon February 2" (1961), addressed to Arthur Miller's son, "Dear Bobbybones." She writes in response to Bobby's letter, "That pool table you told me about in that Danish hotel sounds great. Did I ever tell you that I can really play pool. I learned when I was about sixteen and it is something that you never forget." She also comments, "I am going to get that book you recommended; is it "Lord of the Flies" or "The Fleas"? I would love to read something really terrifying."
Most poignantly, Monroe tells Bobby about her new home, "Bobby, I have the best news: I have just completely bought my new house. ...It is an authentic little Mexican house, but it's got a gigantic swimming pool, and it looks just like Mexico. You would just love it. I have two guest rooms plus a large playroom, plus lots of patios, and a big Mexican wall goes all around the place with big high Mexican gates (that's to keep intruders out, in case anybody gets intrusive.) ...Anyway, I would love - for whichever vacation it can be arranged - if you and Janie wanted to - at least for part of vacation, even if it is just for a few days, or a week - you are welcome to stay as long as you wanted to. I will take care of your plane tickets and meet you at the airport. ..."
Monroe is also excited to share other news, "Oh, Bobby, guess what: I had dinner last night with the Attorney-General of the United States, Robert Kennedy, and I asked him what his department was going to do about Civil Rights and some other issues. He's very intelligent, and besides all that, he's got a terrific sense of humor. I think you would like him. Anyway, I had to go to this dinner last night as he was the guest of honor and when they asked him who he wanted to meet, he wanted to meet me. So, I went to the dinner and I sat next to him, and he isn't a bad dancer either." She continues telling Bobby about her conversation and pressing Kennedy to find out what he planned to do about civil rights and that he answered her questions and told her he would send her a letter with all of his plans. He asked her if she had been attending "some kind of meetings" she writes to Bobby, "I laughed and said 'no, but these are the kind of questions that the youth of America want answers to and want things done about.' Not that I'm so youthful, but I feel youthful. But he's an old 36 himself which astounded me because I'm 35. It was a pleasant evening, all in all."
She begins to close, "I haven't heard from her [Janie] since Christmas. I guess we are all a little sloppy about writing. However, I think we all know what we mean to each other, don't we. At least I know I love you kids and I want to be your friend and stay in touch. ...I love you and miss you, and, give my love to Janie."

May each moment of its joyous expectations be filled to the brim./ New places, faces and experiences await you. You will meet them all with your usual sweetness and loving courtesy./ When you see your sister you will truly both receive a blessing."

Lot 97: MARILYN MONROE GRACE GODDARD NOTES ON BEHAVIOR OF MARILYN MONROE'S MOTHER
 An undated single page of stationery from B & H Waterproofing Mfg. Co. letterhead containing notes in pencil, in Grace Goddard's hand. A parenthetical note at the bottom of the first page reads "(I wrote these things down as Gladys said them while she was staying with me) Grace Goddard." The notes were then presumably sent to Monroe as they were among her belongings at the time of her death. The list, numbered from 1 to 15, is essentially a portrait of someone suffering mental illness, including paranoid delusions: "2. She thinks she was sent to State Hospital because years ago she voted on a Socialist ballot at Hawthorne and was being punished for doing so."; "6. She is being punished because years ago she took a drink of liquor (during prohibition) and should have been sent to jail."; "7. Sleeps with her head at the foot of bed so as not to look at Marilyn's picture - they disturb her."; "10. After listening to a political speech, said she was needed in Russia to help them."; "11. Wishes she never had had a sexual experience so she could be more Christ like."; "15. Misplaces or losing her glasses, watch, gloves, or other possessions and either accuses someone of stealing them, or are to blame for her losing them." She also expresses sudden aversion to meat and fish, fear of Catholics, belief that she was a nurse working for the government while at "Agnew" mental hospital, and belief that nobody should listen to the radio because the people are drunk when they go on the air, among many other observances. This is a fascinating firsthand account of Monroe's mother directly from someone witnessing and documenting her behavior.

Lot 103: MARILYN MONROE RECEIVED LETTER ABOUT SECRETLY CARING FOR HER MOTHER
 A four-page autograph letter with postscript continuing onto the verso of first page, in pencil, in the hand of Grace Goddard, Monroe's one-time legal guardian. The letter dated August 25, 1953, reads in part, "I have been having a wild time over that bill for G - I phoned the secretary as you said ... I could tell by her answers that you had not confided in her about G - She said she didn’t have $600 left to pay that amount and wouldn’t anyway without specific instructions from you. I had to let the whole matter drop as I didn’t want to say anything. I just hoped and prayed you would get home. Sunday morning Miss O’Brien phoned and I was too sick to talk to her … I phoned her today ... and she said if they didn’t receive $600 within the next week they would be forced to turn G - over to the county, which would mean I would have to appear again and this time we couldn’t keep it from becoming public. Another $300 is due by or before the 11th of Sept. I’m so sorry you didn’t send me a check before you left and Doc could have handled it as we did before. The only reason I asked you to have some one else handle that account was because I expected to be in Texas for several months and Doc might be out of town. Now that I don’t need that operation and expect to be here I think it is best not to confide in any more people than you have to. I wish you would send me a check for $600 quick like and I’ll tend to it immediately. Such a burden for a delicate little girl like you to hear. If we had anywhere near that amount in the bank Doc would have sent the check anyway..."
The letter is accompanied by the original transmittal envelope and a pink carbon receipt for a $600 money transfer through the Canadian Pacific Railway Company addressed to Mrs. E.S. Goddard anddated August 27, 1953, with facsimile signature of Marilyn Monroe and a note in her hand saying "sorry difficulty hope you feel better." The form states Monroe's "Place" as the Banff Springs Hotel, where she and Joe DiMaggio stayed while she was filming River of No Return (20th Century Fox 1953) in Canada. The letter clearly shows that even Monroe's secretary was not told about Monroe's mother Gladys being re-admitted to a psychiatric care facility at this time and demonstrates that Monroe was able to keep it a secret with the help of close contacts like the Goddards. Grace Goddard passed away on September 28, 1953, just over a month after this letter was written.

 Six pages of typed thoughts and feelings from a very young Norma Jeane Dougherty expressing her thoughts on her marriage to James Dougherty as she confronts her fear that her husband has been unfaithful with his former girlfriend, Doris Ingram. She writes the letter after a night apart from Dougherty and examines her feelings with great depth of understanding and maturity, "[I]n the beginning I would/ never have stayed with him but for his love of classical/ music his intellect which made a pretense at being more/ then [sic] it was." She continues, "I was greatly/ attracted to him as one of the few young men I had no sexual repulsion for." She comments that despite steady modeling, "... to an outsider it might/ not be conceivable that I had taken my small insecurities/ and built them up into a nervous tension which although it/ had outlets was always present." After discovering that Dougherty "had spent the evening & most of the morning hours with the other woman ..." she says she "... now would/ like a chance at a third act - the unsuspecting male and/ the vengful [sic] female, but now I'm only fooling my-/ self if I do get my last act I will portray the heroine/ who bravely suffers tucking it all away to use as barage [sic]/ some now unknown man." Pages have been stored folded together and are brittle with some separation along crease lines of first page.

 Three sheets of lined notebook paper torn from a spiral-bound book, each containing thoughts in pencil on recto. The notes portray a tired Monroe who has endured more than she could bear. Monroe was living in Roxbury, Connecticut, with husband Arthur Miller and was clearly disenchanted with domestic life in the country. She writes, "I've tried to imagine spring all winter-it's/ here and I still feel hopeless. I think I hate it here because there is no love here/ anymore. I regret the effort I desperately made here." She poetically writes of the mature trees on the property and then turns to self-deprecation, examining her appearance: "I see myself in the mirror now, brow furrowed-/ If I lean close I'll see-what I don't want to know-tension, sadness, disappointment, my eyes dulled, cheeks flushed with capillaries that look/ like rivers on a map -hair lying like snakes. The mouth makes me the saddes [sic]."

Lot 266: ARTHUR MILLER HANDWRITTEN NOTE TO MARILYN MONROE
 A single piece of lined paper torn from a spiral-bound notebook, heavily stained, containing a note in Miller's hand for Monroe. The note reads "I am sitting here, Dearheart, and my heart is bursting with love. I try to figure when is the best date for a wedding, who should be there, where it should be. I want us to marry on my 41st birthday - October 17, 1956." The note was written early in their relationship before Monroe knew she would be in London for the filming of The Prince and the Showgirl, and before Miller knew he would be in London for the premiere of A View from the Bridge in October 1956. Despite Miller's wish to be married on his birthday, he would marry Monroe June 29, 1956, very soon after his Reno divorce from his first wife was finalized. Miller announced his intentions to marry Monroe during his testimony before The House Un-American Activities Committee, June 21, 1956, and they perhaps moved the date forward in an effort to help Miller obtain his passport to accompany his new wife to London.

I thought it was a tennis ball and that it wouldn't make any difference but Daddy and Marilyn said that they would get you another one." It continues "Oh, I did something else that I should tell you about. I jumped up very high and knocked down the badminton set. Then I proceeded to chew up the net but I didn't wreck the rackets or the birds. I am sorry I did this Bob, but what is a dog going to do?" The letter is accompanied by three small black and white snapshots of Bobby with Hugo the dog.

Of course Daddy and Marilyn have been telling me things from your other letters and Bob's too, about what you have been doing at Camp and how much you are enjoying it and I don't want you to feel badly, but I have to tell you that I have missed you something awful." The letter continues with a confession: "I have been sleeping on your bed. It's because it is your bed. So far I don't think Daddy or Marilyn knows about it but every night after they close their door and they go to sleep I wait a little while and then I tiptoe upstairs and I sleep right on your bed. I think they are getting suspicious though because I heard Berniece (that's the new maid and you will like her) say, ‘I found the strangest footprints up on this bedspread.’ Of course, between you and me, they were mine." This charming letter is accompanied by two small black and white snapshots of Jane and Robert Miller with Hugo the dog.

The 1958 letter tells him, "I haven't seen Jack Lemmon yet because he is still working on another picture. He has a very funny part in this picture. Also, he plays a friend of mine. I started to take ukulele lessons because I'm supposed to know how in the picture. I've got an idea: Maybe we can learn something together--you on the guitar and me on the ukulele--you know, charge people admission to hear us."
Monroe also tells him about her brief ownership of a Cocker Spaniel: "About two days ago someone gave me a Cocker Spaniel puppy 10 months old, completely house-broken. So I was going to call your Dad and ask him if it was okay to keep him--then I found out quite by accident that he bites--he didn't bite me but he bit a woman on the throat the day before, so I said 'thanks a lot but no thanks.' His name was 'Walter' and he was a golden-haired spaniel and just beautiful but he seemed just too 'schizo' --short for schizophrenic --you remember you explained what that meant."

The second letter is written to Janie at summer camp and recounts a number of amusing stories about Hugo the Bassett Hound reading in part, "He got kicked by that donkey. Remember him? His nose swelled up with a big lump on top and it really wrecked his profile. I put an ice pack on it and it took several days for it to go down but the last time I saw him it was pretty well healed. Bernice is taking care of him and the house while I am at the hospital./ We are going home tomorrow and then I will write you by hand./ Listen, I had better stop now because I want to get off a note to Bobby today.

Lot 156: MARILYN MONROE NOTES WRITTEN ON BACK OF 1952 MENUS
 Two menus dated March 26, 1952, featuring notes on verso in blue ink in Monroe's hand that appear to have been taken during a meeting with someone advising her about her career. The menus are dated just 10 days after Monroe's nude modeling shots were made public by the media. Monroe had recently appeared in a number of films in small parts and had received positive mentions from critics. Monroe had just started dating Joe DiMaggio, and she was to appear on the cover of LIFE magazine the following month. This was clearly an important and pivotal period in her career, and it appears as though she was meeting with someone in the industry who gave her counsel. One of the warnings appears to come from Johnny Arnez; Monroe put's his warning in quotations: "you'll have to protect yourself or your throat will be cut/ watch out for Jerry Webb." It continues, "you'll prepare the test & Webb shoots it and if something is wrong it will [be] your fault." A great deal of the notes reference Webb and things he has said behind her back. Berniece Miracle mentions seeing Webb, the test director, in the Fox commissary in the late 1940s when she snuck onto the lot with Monroe to spend the day with her half-sister. The notes also contain thoughts from Monroe reading in part, "I need a great deal of work - and will always/ its the right kind of work/ -the more I will be able to stand on my feet." and "think with your body/ let go physically to ick up emotionally" and "you want me to be a star/ and I can be one of your greatest stars/ when I'm doing the right/ work and know I'm doing." Just over two months after these notes were written, Monroe learned that she had gotten the part of Lorelei Lee in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.

Lot 173: MARILYN MONROE HANDWRITTEN ACTORS STUDIO CLASS NOTES
 A single sheet of hotel stationery from the Waldorf Astoria, New York, where Monroe stayed between April and September 1955, with the opening salutation and start of a letter "Dear Art" that has been scratched out. The page is covered on recto and verso with notes, recounting the goings-on in one of Monroe's acting classes with Lee Strasberg. The notes begin with Monroe quoting something said by Strasberg: "I want you all to know that this exercise went on for/ 1/2 hour and her concentration did not/ give way or slip once-and Marilyn there/ will be very few times ever on the/ stage where it will be/ necessary to keep/ such a concentration/ for one half hour/ straight." Monroe then asks herself, "Why did it/ mean so much to me." On the back she continues to ruminate about class, writing, "Strasberg/ it makes me (him he said) feel badly (and sadly) for you that you do/ things out of fear/ You must start to do things out of strength-/ (my question: where do I get the strength)-he said-by not looking for strength/ but only looking & seeking tecnical [sic] ways and means." This presents a fascinating demonstration of how seriously Monroe took her formal acting training in New York.

She instructs herself to make a list of tasks and work on exercises, which perhaps explains the cryptic writings on the second page that did not appear in Fragments, reading in full, "From Ridding partly/ T Nautiousness [sic]/ Place/ personalization (A)/ weariness/ (J)/ (Ar).""

He continues about the scenes that were and were not cut, including "The Duke of Strelitz is, I think essential, as otherwise they will be saying 'what's the matter with them - why the heck can't they get married' particularly in view of Grace Kelly and all that, and our only answer to that question must be 'Yes but Look at the poor Windsors' do you see?"
On an amusing note, Olivier mentions, "By the way Lady Maidenhead has degenerated to Lady Swingdale because I am assured the Hayes Office will not believe there is also a place in England of that name." He closes "I just called up Vivien at the theatre ... and she said to be sure to give you her love. So here it is and mine too. Longing to welcome you here. Ever, Larry."

The letter outlines Miller's thoughts about the script for The Prince and the Showgirl as well as his feelings about Monroe taking on the project, reading in part, "Some of your dialogue is stiff. Also some expressions are too British. If you want me to, I can go through the script and make the changes - - in New York./ I think the part - on one reading, is really the Best one ... especially with you playing it. You are the one who makes everything change, you are the driving force ... The basic problem is to define for yourself the degree of the girl's naivete. (It could become too cute, or simply too designing.) It seems to me, at least, that they have not balanced things in Olivier's favor. ... It ought to be fun to do after Bus Stop. From your - (and my) - viewpoint, it will help in a small but important way to establish your ability to play characters of intelligence and cultivation. ... Your loving Papa - (who has to rush now to make the plane - see you soon! - free!) - Art."

Lot 441: MARILYN MONROE BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S SCRIPT AND REPORT
 A clean copy of the screenplay for Breakfast at Tiffany's written by George Axelrod and dated July 9, 1959. Monroe was considering the part, and she sought the opinions of her professional team including the Strasbergs, her husband, and management team. The script is accompanied by a single-page, typed "report" dated September 23, 1959, which also has the name "Parone" typed to the left of the date. Literary luminary Edward Parone was at the time running Monroe's production company and most likely is the one who wrote this single-page, scathing review of the script, leading with the simple sentence, "I think not." It goes on to criticize the screenplay, determining, "I can see Marilyn playing a part like Holly and even giving this present one all the elan it badly needs, but I don't feel she should play it: it lacks insight and warmth and reality and importance." It has been long reported that Monroe declined the part upon the advice of Lee Strasberg, but this document provides further evidence that other people in her inner circle advised her not to take the role. Together with a four-page shooting schedule for November 4, 1960, for the film.

 A small six-ring binder containing lined notebook pages in a black and red vinyl case by National. The small notebook contains 10 pages of notes in Monroe's hand, in pencil, on eight leaves of paper. The notes were taken during a class with Lee Strasberg and record bits and pieces of things that "Lee said," as is repeated on many pages, which include "For yourself not for us - or one doesn't use own sensitivity/ girl crying continuously Lee said - There should be a certain pleasure in This, in acting - we don't stop these things - she stoped [sic] crying only at those times"; "problems-all the more to be solved got to keep swimming/ criticism can be taken - to incite the will not self criticism"; "the actor has to do what the character has to do - let the author worry about his words"; "Life of - reality of champagne (you don't open every bottle the same) actor in scene took for granted (girl is going to be good (New). Boy - said lines no effort - like crossing street - Lee said he wants - Behavior - When someone is trying to make someone (love etc.) how does one go about it/ Lee said - girl simplicity good honesty, to begin (New) with - but..." The last notes are taken on two sides of one leaf of paper and read "My heart Belongs To Daddy Number/ Remember always left -" and "While tearing off/ caddy-move head a little/ Daddy R. shoulder up/ call dog in closer"; clearly, these notes are for Monroe's musical number in Let's Make Love (20th Century Fox, 1960). The notes correlate with the lyrics of the song, and indeed Monroe does move her head a little during the first verse that mentions the caddy, and she does raise her right shoulder up the first time she says "Daddy" in the chorus.

The pages are accompanied by eight additional full script pages featuring the dialogue that leads up to Rosalyn's pleading with Gay not to kill the horses, beginning with the close shot of the mare stepping into the noose with her forefeet.

 A Western Union telegram from Nunnally Johnson dated April 16, 1962, a week before production was to begin on Something’s Got To Give. Johnson was one of the screenwriters on that film and sent the telegram care of producer Henry Weinstein, misspelled "Wernstein." The telegram from Johnson reads "In Revised script you are child of nature so you can misbehave as much as you please love - Nunnally." Monroe has quickly written a note in pencil for reply reading "Where is that script - is the child of nature due on the set - Hurry Love & Kisses M.M." "Love and Kisses" is repeated, and additional illegible notations have been crossed out. The lighthearted response foreshadowed what was to come with Monroe frequently not reporting to the set as she was scheduled to appear, leading Fox Studios to fire her from the production.

Lot 578: MARILYN MONROE SOMETHING'S GOT TO GIVE SCRIPT AND PAGES USED ON SET
 20th Century Fox, 1962, mimeographed screenplay by Nunnally Johnson, 149 pages, blue cover dated March 29, 1962 reading "Final Confidential For Planning Purposes Only." The script contains two paper-clipped inserts, memos from the production addressed "To All Secretaries," the first dated April 23 and the second dated April 27, 1962, each accompanying blue revised pages 91 and 92 for the script. The script, marked final, also dated March 29, 1962, contains notations in Monroe's hand throughout in pencil and green ink on 18 pages. Some of the notations are from Monroe's work with a Swedish dialect coach.
In addition to these notations, two typed pages of Monroe's dialogue are bound between pages 107 and 108 of the mimeographed script. These two pages contain Monroe's dialogue from one of the few scenes captured on film, with her extensive pencil notations. Raw footage of Monroe performing with Tippy the cocker spaniel and the children in this scene exists, and Monroe's notations are evident in the footage. The top of the page reads "Real Thought/ Mental Relaxation/ substitute children - B & J if necessary/ feeling - place the pain where it is not in the brow." B & J likely refers to Arthur Miller's children Bobby and Jane. Another notation next to one of Monroe's lines of dialogue reads simply "Mona Lisa," which does in fact mirror the expression she uses when delivering this line. Even the exaggerated "Ahhhhh---" that Monroe does at the beginning of each take in the raw footage is written on the page in her hand, reading in full, "Ahhh--Look for the light.”
The notations throughout the script also include notes in an unidentified hand criticizing certain points of the story, including "Too Harsh," "Naggy," "Dull" and many other comments. Overall, the notations in both the script and on the dialogue pages used by Monroe to film the scene with the children and Tippy the dog tell the story of a tedious script writing and editing process. Her dialogue notations are a revealing window into her process in performing some of the last scenes she ever recorded on film.

Lot 580: MARILYN MONROE NOTES ON SOMETHING'S GOT TO GIVE SCRIPT
 A Millers Falls EZERASE pad of typewriter paper with prepunched three-ring binder holes. The cover is detached but present, and the pad contains four pages of notes, two now detached, in Monroe's hand in pencil outlining her issues with the script for the film. The notes and criticisms include "logical drama but doesn't move on the screen/ leads him on than [sic] said not until"; "instead using the talents/ he's stuck/ imagine being married to MM and she comes back and he is stuck/ he'd dying to go Bed with her but can't because"; "more entertaining/ keep it on an edge/ if it isn't that kind of picture it won't go -/ only if script is acceptable." Then come Monroe's suggestions for a scene with check marks next to the ideas: "When Dean first see's Ellen -me- in nurses uniform - (as nurse) he could say - upon arrival - slouching ‘I don't feel so good nurse (weakening in the knees how could she do this to me/ I am telling her/ Beanka kind of stiffening up to hold him & the situation (the nite [sic] before) together he then pulls up but Dean will do this superbly/ He sings little song when drunk & frustrated." She also lists specific passages: "Page 73 (yes? - No? you understand Dean!)/ Page 76 children scene (in comparison to rewrite)." A small note on the last page of notes reads "Funny line writers Herb Gardner / Mel Brook [sic]."
These notes present a very astute Monroe who clearly had serious concerns with the quality of the script, demonstrating that her refusal to appear on set was grounded in these concerns and not simply the actions of a petulant star.

Lot 581: MARILYN MONROE WORKING SCRIPT FOR SOMETHING'S GOT TO GIVE
 A 149-page screenplay for Something's Got To Give by Nunnally Johnson dated March 29, 1962, in blue paper wrappers, marked final. There are notations in Monroe's hand in pencil on approximately 42 pages in the script, some simple dialogue corrections and other more in-depth sense memory notes for her to remember when doing the scene to evoke the right emotional frame of mind. A simple note on the back of the last page of the script reads "Joke writers/ Mel Brooks/ Herb Gardner/ Need spice/ raisins/ Need some funny lines." In a notation next to the stage direction for her character's anticipation and excitement about calling home after she has been rescued, she writes of Arthur Miller's children, "Bobby M./ and early Janie/ except their [sic] mine." In the scene where she is kissing her husband again and excuses herself to "get fixed up a little," she writes, "[L]et me get into something more comfortable/ leading him on -" and "[I]n other room throwing out piece of clothing" and below she writes "[L]ike F.S. when ingaged [sic]." Over an entire passage of dialogue she makes a stage direction note to herself that reads "Ellen looking speculative champain [sic] glass/ finger going around rim." In another scene she writes, "Have the Mask - face relaxed" and "shaking head when he leaves room sly smile/ fat on the fire/ he's on the grittle [sic]." She continues with the fat sizzling on the griddle metaphor, later writing next to a line that jabs at Nick, "Nicely/ He frys on grittle [sic]/ butter melting/ then it sputter/ him."
Notes on the last page of the screenplay read "Act only in beginning/ Then tempting him/ then act when nurse/ on balcony at hotel/ speculative looks/ always tempting him/ always saying yes/ but N/ I've only been away 5 min./ her point of view." Together with a small card with call times and scenes to be shot and a small scrap of paper with quickly written note in Monroe's hand wondering why they are jumping to shoot indoors when they could shoot in sequence as well as notes about using Miss vs. Mrs.

Would you send him, in my care, a picture of yourself, perhaps in pensive, girlish mood, inscribed to him by name and indicating that you are aware of his existence. He is already your slave.

AFTER 4 YEARS OF MARRIAGE
MARILYN MONROE Admits It's Over
By SHEILAH GRAHAM

The celebrated "perfect marriage" of sexy glamor girl Marilyn Monroe and eggheard, Lincolnesque playwroght Arthur Miller has broken up after four years.
Marilyn will file for a divorce, though she hasn't been to see her lawyer yet, she admitted yesterday.
Fighting her way out of her swank apartment building at 444 E. 57th St. at 4:30 p.m, trough a crush of newsmen, photographers, and celebrity-chasers, she looked pale and on the verge of tears. She had little makeup on. Her skin seemed blotchy rather than blooming. Her hai was hidden under a beige babushka and she kept her hands in the pockets of a double-breasted black seal sportcoat.
ASKED ABOUT THE impending divorce, she said in a tired, squeakly voice, "I'm very sorry, I have nothing to say about my personal life" but she confirmed the separation.
Where was she going ?
"I don't think I have to tell you that" she said, fighting her way through the crush to the curb where a hired limousine had been waiting. It took her five minutes to get across the lobby and sidewalk.
"I'll be in New York quite a while; those are my only plans right now", she breathed, looking as if she were ready to cry as the chauffeur, managed to get her into the car.
He drove her to the Central Park West apartment of Lee Strasberg, her drama coach and father of actress Susan Strasberg.
Friends of the couple cautiously blame "clashing careers" -but in thruth it's been apparent for a long time that they were bored to death with each other.
The marriage would have broken up anyhow, even if French movie star Yves Montand hadn't come into her life -but when he did, Marilyn was ripe for a romance.
Don't be surprised if she suddenly departs for Paris on a vacation. That's where Montand is, until he leaves for Japan to make a picture there.
Miller is camping out in a hotel -probably under another name, to keep himself elusive.
The were keeping up pretenses until now, sharing a hotel bungalow in Hollywood, but on Satursay they took separate planes East.
Miller went up to his Connecticut farm on Tuesday to vote, and the two have met twice in New York during the week, but only to discuss business matters.
"It is not an embittered estrangement; there is no bitterness on either side," claimed James Proctor, a friend of both. He explained it in these terms: "Marilyn is not just a star, she is an institution - and must constantly be in the center of excitement and activity. The nature of Miller requires ...
(...)
There are lots of reasons why. Mostly it's that Miller was intolerably bored, with this beautiful sex symbol, whom he found really a dull creature full of complexes. She tried to make him her father, her mother, her uncle. All his creative powers were stifled.


Friends Say Breakup Will Have No Effect on Montand
PARIS, Nov, 11 (UPI) - Marilyn Monroe's divorce plans will not change anything in the life of French singer and actor Yves Montand, friends of Montand said today.
The friends ventured the confident prediction in the absence from Paris of the handsome French movie star, who was rumored to have scored a romantic hit with Miss Monroe when they made the movie "Let's Make Love" together in Hollywood early this year.
Montand was spending the Armistice Day national holiday in the country with his wife, Oscar winning actress Simone Signoret.
THE RUMORS OF Montand's success with Marilyn created a stormy passage in the Frenchman's own married life at the time, friends reported. But now he and his wife are solidly re-united, the friends said.
"But Miss Monroe's divorce will change nothing in Montand's life".
Miss Signoret stayed in Hollywood with Montand during most of the shooting of "Let's Make Love". The two couples lived next door to each other and spent many evenings together. The couple is expected back in Paris tomorrow.

Let's Make Love Dress

'Let's Make Love' Dress
robe du "Milliardaire"
 

1960_01_16_LML_press_043_02_1 

Robe à la ligne simple, en jersey de soie, au décolleté en forme V, qui, à partir de la taille, part en longue jupe de mousseline évasée.


La conception a été initialement attribuée à John Moore, qui en créa une version pour Marilyn de couleur rouge profond, qu'elle porta pour des portraits photos en studio: d'abord, en 1955, posant sous l'objectif de John Florea; puis, en janvier 1957, pour la dernière séance photos d'avec Milton Greene, nommée la 'Red Sitting' (séance en rouge), qui étaient destinées à être des photos publicitaires pour le film The Prince and the Showgirl (Le Prince et la Danseuse).
Marilyn adorait tellement cette robe qu'elle en recommanda une autre à Moore, la même, mais de couleur noire.

  ph_0012330 1957_01_ny_RS_red_sitting_01_1b 

La robe rouge fut vendue par Christies en 2001.
La robe noire fut vendue par Sothebys en 2001.
mm dress_Lot41a_1_ mm


La robe qu'elle porte dans le film "Let's Make Love" ("Le Milliardaire") en 1960 existe en trois versions: elles ont été créées par Jax. Marilyn se basa sur les créations de Moore et demanda à Jax d'en faire plusieurs copies. Les boutiques Jax étaient tenues et dirigées par Jack Hanson (qui en ouvrit deux au début des années 50: une à Beverly Hills et une à New York, près de l'appartement où vivait Marilyn). En 1960, Rudi Gernreich était le nouveau couturier qui travaillait pour Hanson, il est donc probable que ce soit lui qui créa les trois robes:

  • 1/ Dans le film, Marilyn porte une robe légèrement rosée, dont la longue jupe contient une graduation de nuances de rose plus foncées. Elle apparaît ainsi vêtue dans deux scènes qui s'enchaînent: l'une avec Yves Montand, et l'autre avec Frankie Vaughan où ils chantent ensemble "Incurably Romantic".

  • 2/ Puis, une version blanche au ton gris pâle, que Marilyn porta le 16 janvier 1960 pour la conférence de presse du film "Let's Make Love", et plus tard la même année, durant la période de tournage de "The Misfits": dans un casino, et le 16 octobre 1960 à un dîner avec Monty Clift.

Durant la conférence de presse, toute l'équipe du film participa à un cocktail et but du champagne. Il semble que Marilyn renversa sa coupe sur le décolleté de sa robe, tel qu'on peut le voir sur les photographies suivantes où Yves Montand désigne du doigt à Marilyn la tâche qu'a laissé le champagne sur sa robe, une tâche visible sur certaines photographies:

Frank Worth
(1923 - 2000)
photographe américain

Frank Worth et Marilyn Monroe en 1953

Frank Worth est né en 1923 à New York City et apprit la photographie alors qu'il était encore au lycée. Pendant sa dernière année d'étudiant, Frank se rendit à l'International News Service ('INS') à New York, avec un échantillon de son travail. Il fut pris à l'essai puis fut engagé pour couvrir un reportage sur des célébrités qui arrivaient par le train California Express à la gare Grand Central Station. Frank Worth qui était plein d'esprit et charmant, gagna rapidement la confiance de ses sujets célèbres. Après son diplôme obtenu en 1940, l'INS envoya Frank à Hollywood en tant que photographe personnel. Il domicilia à la maison de l'acteur et chanteur Rudy Vallee, avec qui il s'était lié d'amitié à New York. Puis Frank quitta vite l'INS pour devenir membre des photographes d'Hollywood. Il travailla pour un bon nombre de magazines de cinéma tels que Movie Fan et Movie Teen tout en continuant à collaborer occasionnellement en freelance pour l'INS.
Frank Worth devint l'ami et le confident de l'élite des plus grandes stars américaines de l'âge d'or d'Hollywood des années 1940 et 1950. D'une nature discrète et loyale envers ses amis stars, très peu de ses photos furent publiées ou dévoilées au public durant sa vie.

FRANK  WORTH  ET  LES  STARS
Frank Worth devint ami avec bon nombre de célébrités dont James Dean, avec qui il partageait la passion pour les voitures de sports. A travers ses relations amicales, Frank fut invité à de nombreuses premières de films, ainsi que sur les plateaux de tournages, tels que Rebel Without A Cause (La Fureur de Vivre), Giant (Geant), Reap the Wild Wind (Les Naufragés des mers du Sud), How To Marry a Millionaire (Comment épouser un Millionaire) ainsi que The Seven Year Itch (Sept ans de Reflexion). Worth participa à beaucoup de cérémonies de remises de prix et photographia notamment les soirées des Golden Globes et des Oscars (comme Grace Kelly et Alfred Hitchcock), et il captura ainsi des centaines de photographies prises sur le vif de stars légendaires tels que The Marx Brothers, Cary Grant, Humphrey Bogart, Rita Hayworth, Jane Russell ou encore Elizabeth Taylor.
Frank Sinatra arriva à Hollywood quelques années après Frank Worth et ils devinrent aussi des amis proches. Par l'intermédiaire de Sinatra, Worth rencontra et devint ami avec la bande du Rat Pack, composé de Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr. et Jerry Lewis. Jerry Lewis a même joué un petit rôle dans un film inachevé de Frank Worth, The Silent Treatment (1967), un film qui mettait en scène beaucoup des amis stars de Worth incluant Peter Lawford, Phyllis Diller, Aldo Ray, Barry Sullivan, Pat Carroll et Jackie Coogan.

MARILYN  MONROE  ET  JAYNE  MANSFIELD
Frank Worth entrenait des liens avec Marilyn Monroe bien avant qu'elle ne devienne une célébrité grâce à The Asphalt Jungle. Certaines des meilleures photos de Marilyn par Frank Worth ont été prises pendant le tournage de How to Marry a Millionaire. Peu après la mort de Marilyn, Frank Worth avoua avoir eu une relation avec elle.
jayne_mansfield_by_frank_worthFrank Worth et l'actrice Jayne Mansfield, qui s'inspirait beaucoup de Marilyn Monroe, étaient aussi très proches. Le fan club de Jayne Mansfield crédite même Frank Worth en tant que "découvreur" de la star.
En effet, le meilleur ami de Worth, Burt Kaiser, a produit Female Jungle, le premier film avec Jayne Mansfield.
Plus tard, Worth présenta Jayne à Howard Hughes à la 'RKO Pictures press junket' pour le film Underwater.

LA  PHOTO CELEBRE
frankworthphotoPendant que Frank était à New York sur le tournage de Seven Year Itch (Sept ans de Reflexion), il remarqua que le metteur en scène Billy Wilder et Marilyn Monroe était au dessus de la bouche d'aération qui envoyait de l'air. Worth photographia la première image de Marilyn avec sa robe virevoltante. Peu après, Billy Wilder s'éloigna et un photographe de l'agence UPI, le seul autre photographe ayant l'autorisation à être sur le plateau, prit le cliché devenu désormais l'image la plus célèbre et diffusée de Marilyn. La photo d' UPI se retrouva en une de la presse et fit sensation pour Marilyn et pour le film. Le studio fit retourner la scène à Hollywood et invita quelques photographes. Mais à cette période, le mari de Marilyn, Joe DiMaggio, refusa que le slip de Marilyn soit entrevu, et donc Marilyn s'arrangea de ne rien dévoiler pendant la scène.
Frank Worth permit la publication de cette photo historique de Marilyn uniquement une fois, sur la couverture d'un numéro spécial du Hollywood Reporter qui était dédicacé à Billy Wilder.

L' HERITAGE  PHOTOGRAPHIQUE  DE  WORTH
Frank Worth ne voulait pas être considéré comme un 'simple photographe'. Au lieu de cela, il pensait ses photographies comme étant un journal intime de sa vie et de ses amitiés, et garda bon nombre de ses clichés à l'abri. Frank Worth décéda un peu dans l'indifférence, en 2000, laissant derrière lui une collection de pas moins de 10.000 photographies dans son appartement hollywoodien. Heureusement, ils furent découvert par des membres honnêtes de sa famille. Désormais depuis 2001, c'est la compagnie "International Images" qui travaille en collaboration avec les propriétés de Frank Worth afin de préserver ses photos et de les faire partager aux fans et collectionneurs; ainsi que d'organiser des expositions un peu partout dans le monde.
