Ivo-Livi-ou-le-destin-d-Yves-Montand  Le 13 octobre 1921, un an avant l'arrivée au pouvoir de Benito Mussolini et des fascistes, Ivo Livi naît à Monsummano Alto, en Toscane. Des quartiers mal famés de Marseille aux studios hollywoodiens, des mille petits boulots de la jeunesse aux théâtres de Broadway, comment un fils d'immigrés communistes italiens que rien ne vouait à devenir une star mondiale va devenir un artiste majeur et engagé et le témoin des grands moments de l'histoire du XXe siècle ?

Documentaire:  Les nombreuses vies
de Sammy Davis Jr.

les-nombreuses-vies-de-sammy-davis-jr  

Réalisation: Sam Pollard
Pays: Etats-Unis
Année: 2017
Durée: 53 min

Noir, juif et Portoricain : un mélange détonant dans l’Amérique du XXe siècle. Portrait d’un artiste au multiples talents, Sammy Davis Jr., connu pour avoir bravé la ségrégation raciale.

Né en 1925 de parents artistes, Sammy Davis Jr. est propulsé très tôt dans le show-business. Excellent danseur de claquettes, il se produit aux côtés de son père au sein du Will Mastin Trio. Pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale, alors qu’il sert dans l’armée, Sammy Davis Jr. découvre le racisme, et prend conscience du pouvoir de l’humour pour l’affronter. Sa carrière décolle au milieu des années 1950, lorsqu’il décroche un second rôle dans la comédie musicale Mr. Wonderful, à Broadway. Engagé dans le mouvement des droits civiques, Sammy Davis Jr. refuse de jouer dans les salles qui pratiquent la ségrégation et déclenche la polémique en se mariant en 1960 avec l’actrice suédoise May Britt, alors que trente et un États américains interdisent encore les mariages entre Blancs et Noirs.

Artiste multifacettes
Ce passionnant documentaire revient sur la vie mouvementée de cet artiste multifacettes, à la fois chanteur, acteur, danseur et imitateur. À travers une foule d’archives et les témoignages du récemment disparu Jerry Lewis, de Whoopi Goldberg et de Quincy Jones, le film déroule le chemin chaotique que ce frondeur a dû parcourir pour arriver au sommet, sur fond de bataille pour les droits civiques. "Je vais faire en sorte que les gens m’adorent en tant qu’artiste, même s’ils me détestent en tant que Noir", disait-il. Une histoire qui est aussi, pour le meilleur et pour le pire, celle de l’Amérique.

Bijoux


Lot 358: MARILYN MONROE WORN EARRINGS AND BOOK
A pair of gold-plated clip-on earrings featuring filigree spheres accented with simulated diamonds. Stamped "sterling patented."
The earrings were worn by Marilyn Monroe in a series of Fox publicity photos shot by staff photographer Frank Powolny, used to promote the film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (20th Century, 1953). The photoshoot produced legendary images of Monroe wearing the racy gold pleated gown designed by Travilla for Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Although the gown was deemed to be too revealing because of its plunging neckline and was cut from the film, Monroe liked it and insisted on wearing it to the 1953 Photoplay Awards ceremony. She also wore it during this photoshoot, together with these earrings, producing some of the most iconic images of Monroe ever captured.

 Lot 143: MARILYN MONROE WORN BLACK COLOBUS COAT
A mid-1940s black colobus coat worn by Marilyn Monroe to the 1948 film premiere of The Emperor Waltz (Paramount, 1948). The coat has broad shoulders, a cordé collar, a satin lining, and a Jerrold's Van Nuys, Calif. label. Although the black colobus is currently on the endangered species list, it was quite fashionable in the 1940s. Monroe wrote in a letter to Grace Goddard dated December 3, 1944, "I found out that its [sic] possible to buy a Gold Coast Monkey Coat. I shall write to you about it later." The coat was gifted from Monroe to Jacquita M. Rigoni (Warren), who was the great-niece to Anne Karger, mother of Monroe's voice coach, Freddie Karger. Monroe had a close relationship with the family, and the coat has remained in their possession. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Jacqui Rigoni detailing the family's relationship to Monroe and the history of the coat.
The monkey species used to make this Marilyn Monroe monkey fur coat is on the Endangered Species list. U.S. Endangered Species Act regulations required by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service impose certain regulations on the sale of this coat. Please read the following carefully:
Please read the following carefully: The Marilyn Monroe monkey fur coat may be sold to a resident of California without requiring a Federal permit. A non-California resident may bid on this coat and if he or she were the winning bidder could apply for a Federal permit to remove the coat from the state of California. Julien’s has been advised that a Federal permit would likely be REFUSED by the governing offices. It is vehemently advised that non-residents of California DO NOT bid on this Marilyn Monroe owned monkey fur coat. If you bid on this lot and are unable to obtain a permit Julien’s has no liability and will be unable to refund you for your purchase.
A California resident who purchases this coat and later moves from California to another state would not be required to obtain a permit if he or she maintained ownership of the coat when changing state of residence. However, the owner would need to make sure there are no state regulations prohibiting the transfer of the coat from one state to another.
Estimate: $20,000 - $30,000 | Winning Bid: $32,000

Lot 144: MARILYN MONROE FAN FROM THE PRINCE AND THE SHOWGIRL

The frame and guard are embellished with floral motif carvings embellished with pink, blue, and gold-metallic paint. The accompanying letter from the consignor explains that the fan was gifted by Monroe to William Louis George Le Brun, known as Louis Le Brun in the film industry, who was the Chief Production Accountant for Warner Bros. in the United Kingdom. When Monroe was taken ill while filming, Le Brun, who was responsible for overseeing the distribution of all finances, which involved the insurance and wellbeing of the cast and production team, stayed by her side. As a thank-you, Monroe gave him this fan, or more specifically gave the fan to his wife as an apology for keeping Le Brun from his family. At the time the fan was received several of the fan blades were broken, presumed to be from use during filming. The fan has remained in the possession of the Le Brun family since the gift was made by Monroe.

 Lot 155: 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.

Lot 158: MARILYN MONROE MEDICAL FILE
A medical file pertaining to cosmetic surgery performed on Marilyn Monroe. The file includes facial X-rays and doctors' notes from the office of Dr. Michael Gurdin, M.D., and the X-ray office of Drs. Conti and Steinberg. Dr. Gurdin's chart on Monroe begins on July 14, 1958, and lists the patient as Marilyn Miller with addresses in New York and Los Angeles. The chief complaint listed is "chin deformity" and goes on to give a medical history that begins in 1950 and ends in 1962. Listed are a 1956 bout of neutropenia in England; 1957 ectopic pregnancy in New York; and 1950 cartilage implant in chin that the doctor observed had slowly begun to dissolve. Those with knowledge of the implant procedure have explained that this was done in association with a tip rhinoplasty, a procedure involving the tip of Monroe's nose only, not the bones. The last entry is dated June 7, 1962, and reports a fall at between 2 and 3 a.m. resulting in swelling and tenderness of the nose. Monroe was brought to Dr. Gurdin by her psychoanalyst, Dr. Ralph Greenson. Monroe was referred to Drs. Conti and Steinberg for X-rays. For her visit to the radiologists she was given the alias "Miss Joan Newman," and that name appears on the paperwork with Monroe's Brentwood home address. Six X-rays are in the folder: a frontal facial bones X-ray; a smaller X-ray that is a composite of the right and left sides of her nasal bones; and four small dental X-rays into the roof of Monroe's mouth, looking upward toward the nasal bones. The conclusion, written by Dr. Conti and dated June 7, 1962, is that there was no damage to Monroe's nose due to her fall. A more recent evaluation of the X-rays indicates a very minute hairline fracture of this bone. Monroe had turned 36 less than a week earlier. On June 8, the following day, Monroe was fired from the film Something's Got to Give (20th Century Fox, 1962).

Doc - Robert Mitchum, le mauvais garçon d'Hollywood

Robert Mitchum, le mauvais garçon d'Hollywood

doc-Robert_mitchum-cap_title 

Année: 2017
Réalisation: Stéphane Benhamou

Pays: France, Arte / Lobster
Durée: 55 min

Par son naturel, le "bad boy" Robert Mitchum a conquis le public et les plus grands cinéastes, d'Otto Preminger à Vincente Minnelli en passant par Howard Hawks. Sans occulter ses frasques, ce séduisant portrait dévoile la sensibilité que l'acteur dissimulait sous sa désinvolture.


Retranscription des passages liés à Marilyn Monroe:

(à 08 min) - En mars 1940, il se marie avec Dorothy qui l'a rejoint à Los Angeles. Elle tombe enceinte, et Mitchum doit abandonner ses petits boulots et le théâtre pour trouver un emploi stable. Il est embauché à l'usine Lockheed. L'Amérique vient d'entrer en guerre et les candences sont infernales sur les chaînes de fabrication de bombardiers. Il se lie avec un collègue, Jim Dougherty, tout juste marié à une jolie fille d'à peine 16 ans, Norma Jeane Baker. Ils sont loin d'imaginer, eux, les enfants de la crise qui peinent à boucler leurs fins de mois, qu'ils se retrouveront stars, douze ans plus tard, sur "Rivière sans retour".

(à 16 min) - Il préfère les soirées plus intimes. Comme celle où il est invité chez la jeune comédienne Lila Leeds. La soirée est brutalement interrompu par la police de Los Angeles, qui surprend les invités en train de fumer de la marijuana. Michum est embarqué dans une voiture de police. Et, chose étrange, la presse se bouscule déjà au commissariat où on le ramène avec les autres invités. Tout cela ressemble tellement à l'un de ces films noirs que Mitchum déclare aussitôt au Los Angeles Times qu'une arrestation pour usage de drogue, ça ruine une carrière. Il en a tellement tourné des histoires comme celle-ci où un soit-disant mauvais garçon paie pour les fautes des autres, qu'il est certain de l'issue de cette sale affaire. Son producteur et patron, Howard Hughes, est appelé au milieu de la nuit. On l'informe que sa jeune vedette risque jusqu'à six ans de prison. Il n'a pas échappé au procureur que Mitchum a déjà été condamné. Peu importe qu'il l'ait été seulement pour vagabondage quand il avait 16 ans. Hugues engage aussitôt le meilleur avocat de la ville, Jerry Giesler. Michum ne se fait guère d'illusion sur son sort. Au greffier, qui lui demande son métier, il répond "ancien acteur". Lors de son procès en février 1949, son avocat prouve qu'il a été victime d'une sombre histoire de chantage. Le juge accorde les circonstances atténuantes et Mitchum et Leeds sont condamnés à 60 jours de prison. Pour Lila Leeds, qui n'a encore qu'un statut de starlette, sa carrière va s'arrêter là. Et le film qu'elle tourne très rapidement pour raconter cette histoire sera son dernier.

(à 27 min) - Ceux qui travaillent avec lui savent très bien qu'il n'y a rien à gagner à le provoquer. Le réalisateur Otto Preminger va l'apprendre à ses dépends sur le tournage de "Un si doux visage". Mitchum doit donner une gifle à Jean Simmons, pour la sortir de sa torpeur. Mais Preminger ne trouve pas la scène assez convaincante. Il la fait refaire plusieurs fois. Il exige que Mitchum donne une gifle plus forte, et, encore plus forte, jusqu'au moment où Mitchum s'avance vers Preminger et lui envoie une énorme claque en lui demandant: "Et comme ça, c'est assez fort ?".
(...) Après avoir été giflé, Preminger demande à Howard Hugues le renvoie de Mitchum, qu'il n'obtient pas. Cela n'empêche pas de réclamer Mitchum pour son film suivant, une super production en technicolor. Michum retrouve une vieille connaissance, celle qu'on appelle maintenant Marilyn Monroe. Malgré son air indifférent, Mitchum est un partenaire précieux. Il dissuade sa vieille copine Marilyn de suivre les conseils de sa répétitrice. Juste avant de tourner, il lui donne une claque dans le dos et lui demande d'abandonner ses airs affectés de grande tragédienne. Des airs qu'elle ne prend jamais quand elle se retrouve en famille chez les Mitchum.
Christopher Michum, fils de Robert Mitchum: "Je me souviens du jour où je l'ai rencontré à Mandeville, ils tournaient "La rivière sans retour". J'étais assis devant la cheminée, dans le salon, sur un petit banc haut comme ça, recouvert de tapisserie rembourrée. J'étais là, en plein hiver, à me réchauffer le dos au coin du feu. Je devais avoir dans les 10 ans. Elle est entrée, elle s'est retournée, et elle a relevé sa robe pour se réchauffer le postérieur au coin du feu. Et moi, j'étais là, à regarder... (rire). Arrive mon père, qui lui demande: "Tu as fait connaissance avec mon fils ? Là, elle se retourne, et elle me dis: "Bonjour, je m'appelle Norma Jeane." Apparemment, elle ne m'avait pas vu. Mais ça ne l'a pas troublée du tout. Ce premier contact m'a fait forte impression. Voilà comment j'ai rencontré Marilyn Monroe ! (rire)."
Carrie Mitchum, petite-fille de Robert Mitchum: "Je crois que les grandes amitiés que Bob a tissé, pas seulement avec des actrices, mais aussi avec des acteurs, d'autres hommes, était basé sur une compréhension réciproque de leur histoire. C'est une génération qui a survécu à la Dépression, à la pauvreté, à la dureté du quotidien. Ils étaient liés par cette expérience de la survie. Ils savaient tous parfaitement d'où ils venaient. Et ils ne voulaient pas retourner en arrière".

Documentaire:  Robert Mitchum,
le mauvais garçon d'Hollywood

robertmitchum

Réalisation: Stéphane Benhamou
Pays: France
Année: 2017
Durée: 55 min

Par son naturel, le "bad boy" Robert Mitchum a conquis le public et les plus grands cinéastes, d'Otto Preminger à Vincente Minnelli en passant par Howard Hawks. Sans occulter ses frasques, ce séduisant portrait dévoile la sensibilité que l'acteur dissimulait sous sa désinvolture.
Né en 1917 dans le Connecticut, Robert Mitchum subit de plein fouet la Grande Dépression. À 11 ans, il quitte un foyer qui n'a plus de quoi le nourrir. Après quelque temps passé chez ses grands-parents et une arrestation pour vagabondage, il rejoint la cohorte des hobos, ces errants en quête de jobs ou de combines. Cette jeunesse à la dure lui forgera le caractère et les muscles. Elle lui donnera aussi le désir d'un ancrage familial. En 1940, il épouse Dorothy, et leur union résistera à toutes ses infidélités.

"Jane Russell mâle"
Dès ses débuts, Robert Mitchum joue avec un naturel remarquable, à contre-courant de la vogue Actors Studio. Sa carrure, son flegme, son ironie en font un sex-symbol, le "Jane Russell mâle". Mais le jour où la police le coince en train de fumer de l'herbe, il se croit fini. Le patron de la RKO, Howard Hugues, dégaine alors une campagne de communication montrant Mitchum purgeant humblement sa peine. L'amour du public, acquis à la cause de ce mauvais garçon, fait le reste. L'acteur enchaîne les tournages avec les plus grands cinéastes, de Minnelli à Preminger (à qui il mettra une claque !). Sertie d'extraits de films, de témoignages et d'archives personnelles, cette plaisante biographie ne ruine pas la mauvaise (et savoureuse) réputation de l'acteur. Elle rappelle ses frasques, ses multiples liaisons (avec Ava Gardner et Shirley MacLaine, entre autres), sa rétivité aux mondanités, et ressuscite le franc-parler réjouissant qui le vit déclarer devant la commission aux activités antiaméricaines, en plein maccarthysme, qu'il répugnait à converser "avec des gens avec lesquels il n'irait pas boire des coups". Mais ce portrait dévoile aussi l'émotivité cachée derrière la façade de dur à cuire. Le touchant témoignage de son fils, Christopher Mitchum, révèle le père sensible et aimant que fut l'acteur. On apprend aussi que, malgré ses dénégations, Mitchum prenait son métier à cœur. L'échec des chefs-d'œuvre La nuit du chasseur et La fille de Ryan, réévalués longtemps après, minèrent ce faux cynique, qui prétendait faire du cinéma "pour le fric".
