07/1941, Santa Monica - Norma Jeane et les Howell à la plage (Film Footage)

Norma Jeane âgée de 15 ans, à la plage de Santa Monica en Californie en juillet 1941: il s'agit des première images filmées de la future Marilyn Monroe, un film de famille filmé ici par la famille Howell, des amis et voisins de Grace Goddard.
Chester et Doris Howell ont trois filles: l'aîné et deux jumelles (Loralee et Doralee). Les films de famille montrent Norma Jeane avec la famille Howell, s'amusant à faire la roue sur le sable; à jouer dans les vagues de l'océan; à faire la ronde en marchant sur le sable.
Des années plus tard, Mme Howell témoignera dans un documentaire de cette période: "C'était une fille adorable et nous l'aimions. (..) C'était merveilleux de l'avoir à la plage avec nous. Elle était simplement une adolescente joyeuse, jouant dans l'eau, faisant juste des roues sur le sable, s'amusant vraiment. Nous avons acheté son premier maillot de bain, elle était vraiment douce."
Quand à Marilyn, elle racontera plus tard en interview: "J'adorais jouer avec les enfants du quartier".

Norma Jeane aged 15, at Santa Monica beach in California in July 1941: these are the first films footage of the future Marilyn Monroe, a home movie filmed by the Howell family, friends and neighbors of Grace Goddard.
Chester and Doris Howell have three daughters: the oldest and two twins (Loralee and Doralee). The Family home movies show Norma Jeane with the Howells, having fun cartwheeling on the sand; to play in the ocean waves; to go around walking on the sand.

Years later, Ms Howell will tell in a documentary, talking about this period: "She was a lovely girl and we loved to her. (..) It was wonderful to have her at the beach with us. She was just a happy tennager, playing in the water, just doing cartwheels on sand, really enjoyng herself. We bought her first bathing suit, she was soft real."
As for Marilyn, she will tell later in an interview: "I loved playing with children of the neighborhood".

1943, île Santa Catalina - Norma Jeane & Jim Dougherty

L'été 1943, James Dougherty s'engage dans la marine marchande et militaire: pour sa première affectation, il est envoyé sur l'île de Santa Catalina sur les côtes de la Californie, à Avalon, la grande ville de l'île. Sa femme Norma Jeane le rejoint l'automne et le couple va y rester près d'une année et demie, habitant dans un appartement (sur l'avenue Descando).
La vie semblait être plutôt agréable et paisible pour Norma Jeane: le couple avait des amis (le couple White et la famille Gaddis - dont Jim était le parrain de leur bébé James Edward Gaddis), Norma Jeane promenait son chien Muggsie, pratiquait du sport (faisant de l'haltérophilie avec Howard Corrington, ancien champion olympique; nageant dans l'océan avec Jim), faisait des sorties (visite du zoo consacré exclusivement aux oiseaux en janvier 1944; allait assister aux matchs de base-ball de l'équipe locale), et faisait parfois du babysitting en gardant le bébé des voisins (pour gagner un peu d'argent).

In the summer of 1943, James Dougherty enlisted in the merchant and military navy: for his first assignment, he is sent to Santa Catalina Island on the coast of California, to Avalon, the island's big city. His wife Norma Jeane joins him in the fall and the couple stay there for nearly a year and a half, living in an apartment (on Descando Avenue).
Life seemed to be pretty nice and peaceful for Norma Jeane: the couple had friends (the White couple and the Gaddis family - to whom Jim was godfather to their baby James Edward Gaddis), Norma Jeane walked her dog Muggsie, played sports (weightlifting with former Olympic champion Howard Corrington; swimming in the ocean with Jim) , went on outings (visiting the zoo devoted exclusively to birds in January 1944; went to watch the local team's baseball games), and sometimes did babysitting keeping the neighbours' baby (to earn a little money).

1944s, Los Angeles - Norma Jeane dans sa rue

Entre 1943 et 1945, Norma Jeane Dougherty (Marilyn Monroe) vit dans plusieurs endroits différents:
D'abord, avec Jim Dougherty, ils vivent l'été 1943 au 14747 Archwood Street, Van Nuys dans la maison des parents de Jim; puis habitent quelques temps sur Bessemer Street, toujours à Van Nuys, avant de s'installer sur l'île de Catalina où Jim a été affecté. Quand ils reviennent au printemps 1944 en Californie, Jim part dans le Pacifique, alors Norma Jeane part vivre chez les parents de Jim, au 5254 Hermitage Street à Hollywood.
Il arrive aussi à Norma Jeane de rendre souvent visite à Ana Lower, qui habite sur Nebraska Avenue à Los Angeles.
Il est donc difficile de déterminer où ces photographies ont été prises, ainsi que leurs dates.

Between 1943 and 1945, Norma Jeane Dougherty (Marilyn Monroe) lives in several different places:
First, with Jim Dougherty, they lived in the summer of 1943 at 14747 Archwood Street, Van Nuys in Jim's parents' house; then they lived for a while on Bessemer Street, still in Van Nuys, before settling on Catalina Island where Jim was assigned.
When they return to California in the spring of 1944, Jim leaves for the Pacific, so Norma Jeane goes to live with Jim's parents, at 5254 Hermitage Street in Hollywood.
Norma Jeane also often visits Ana Lower, who lives on Nebraska Avenue in Los Angeles.
It is therefore difficult to determine where these photographs were taken, as well as their dates.
