More Information:
"Marilyn Monroe is a beautiful girl!" were the words I was typing when as a 17 year-old, this picture of me was shot by a photographer from LifeMagazine in 1955. The photo, which actually appeared in the magazine a couple of months later, launched my own collection of Marilyn Monroe photos taken overseveral years by me and fivefellow teenage fans who became known as "The Monroe 6." During Marilyn's time in New York, I and the others photographed herin various locations around the city. We would then run to the drugstore to get our snapshots developed in multiples so that all of us could have all the shots we had taken of her (thus the reason for the different shapes and sizes of the photos my collection). In the era before Google and GPS and TMZ and smartphones, we were alerted to Marilyn's appearancesand whereabouts by sources ranging fromVariety Magazinetoher Upper East Side hairdresser. Marilyn got to know the six of us well as we journeyed around the city with her and I remember her always being gracious and friendly. We wanted nothing from her except the opportunity to take her picture or to get her autograph - and often times she would sign on the very photographs we had just taken of her the day before. After Marilyn died, I put these photographs in a closet for many decades, though over the last few years, I have posted a few of them on the Internet for fans to see. I am now ready to let others have my original 1950s-era snapshots of the movie star I had the luck and pleasure to see many times up close and in the flesh - Miss Marilyn Monroe! And she did not disappoint - she was absolutely beautiful as all these photos clearly indicate. When you saw her in person, shewas THE movie star, no doubt about it!

1/07/1956 Cérémonie Juive Mariage Marilyn et Arthur

Durant la semaine précédente (du 24 au 29 juin 1956) passée à Roxbury dans la propriété de Arthur Miller, Marilyn Monroe a demandé à Augusta Miller, la mère d'Arthur, de lui apprendre des recettes de plats typiquement juifs.
Par ailleurs, Marilyn insiste pour que les Miller téléphonent à un rabbin de la branche réformée du judaïsme, Robert Goldburg, qui accepte de lui donner une brève instruction religieuse et de célébrer la cérémonie nuptiale.
During the previous week (24 to 29 June 1956) into Roxbury, at the home of Arthur Miller, Marilyn Monroe asked to Augusta Miller, Arthur's mother, to teach her recipes from typical Jewish meals.
Furthermore, Marilyn insists for that Miller phone to a rabbi of the reformed branch of Judaism, Robert Goldburg, who agrees to give her a brief religious instruction and to celebrate the wedding ceremony.

Le dimanche 1er juillet 1956, soit deux jours après la cérémonie civile du mariage, est célébré le mariage juif de Marilyn Monroe et Arthur Miller. C'est Marilyn qui avait insisté pour obtenir cette cérémonie religieuse. La cérémonie du mariage est gardée secrète jusqu'au dernier moment.

As usual, Marilyn is late.

 1956-07-01-wed_miller-dressPuis Marilyn et Arthur arrivent: elle est vêtue d'un simple blue jean et se précipite dans une chambre à l'étage où la dame d'honneur, Hedda Rosten, l'aide à se changer avec la robe de mariée beige en mousseline de soie, signée des créateurs John Moore et Norman Norell, avec des fronces sur les manches et le corsage et une ceinture de satin sous le buste. Amy Greene a prêté son voile qu'elle a fait tremper dans du café une semaine auparavant, afin de renforcer l'aspect de douceur d'ombres beige du voile en auréole. (cf illustration de Michelle Shin ci-contre). Le costume qu'Arthur porte a été acheté par Milton et fourni par Jack Walker, un ami proche de Greene, qui a couru au magasin de mercerie pour hommes Mannie Walker. Miller le porte avec une cravate et a mis une fleur à sa boutonnière. Les autres dames d'honneur sont Judy Kantor et Amy Greene, qui a aidé Marilyn à se coiffer et se maquiller.

Then Marilyn and Arthur arrive: she is wearing a simple blue jeans and rushes into a room upstairs where matron of honor, Hedda Rosten, help her to change with the wedding chiffon beige dress, by the designers John Moore and Norman Norell, with ruching on the sleeves and bodice and a satin sash under the bust. Amy Greene has loaned her veil that she had soaked veil in coffee a week before, to enhance the appearance of smooth beige shadows of halo veil (see illustration below against Michelle Shin). The suit Arthur wears is actually purchased by Milton and provides by Jack Walker, dear friend of the Greene’s, who runs the Mannie Walker men’s haberdashery store. Miller wears a tie and put a flower in his buttonhole.
The other matrons of honor are Judy Kantor and Amy Greene, who helped Marilyn to make hair and makeup.

Cependant, Marilyn semble perturbée depuis deux jours (en fait, depuis le mariage civil du vendredi): elle est nerveuse, anxieuse et se renferme sur elle-même, comme l'ont constaté Milton et Amy Greene. Milton avait d'ailleurs téléphoné à Irving Stein, l'avocat de Marilyn pour lui demander de "se tenir prêt en cas de difficulté de dernière minute". Pendant que Marilyn se prépare dans la chambre, Milton en profite pour discuter avec elle: "Je ne t'ai pas vu sourire de toute la journée. Tu es bien sûre de ce que tu fais ? (...) Tu veux vraiment de ce mariage ? Tu n'y es pas obligée, tu sais. Si tu veux tout arrêter, ce n'est pas compliqué", lui dit Milton. Des larmes commencent à couler sur le visage de Marilyn et Amy la réconforte en lui précisant: "On peut te mettre dans une voiture pour sortir doucement par la porte de derrière. Nous, on se débrouillera avec les invités. Le mariage civil pourrait certainement être annulé avant que le rituel religieux ne vint apporter sa solennité à l'union". Et Marilyn de répondre calmement: "Non, je crois que je ne veux pas me marier".
Milton sort de la chambre et s'apprête à renvoyer tout le monde, mais Marilyn le rappele: "Non, Milton ! On a invité tous ces gens, on ne peut pas faire ça, on ne peut pas les décevoir !"
D'après Amy, Marilyn avait vu un mauvais présage dans la mort accidentelle de la journaliste Maria Scherbatoff (le 29 juin, lors de la conférence de presse donnée avec Miller à Roxbury): "Mais elle savait aussi, présage ou pas, qu'elle commettait une terrible erreur en acceptant ce mariage". D'ailleurs, un autre ami de Marilyn confie: "Elle n'était pas sûre de l'aimer, mais elle n'était pas sûre non plus de ne pas l'aimer. Au cœur de sa confusion, cependant, était son sentiment qu'elle était dépassée avec cet homme. Son insécurité allait crescendo à cette époque. Elle ne pouvait pas s'empêcher de se demander ce que cet intellectuel voulait d'elle, et cela la rendait folle. Cherchait-il juste une femme trophée, comme Joe ? C'est ce qui se passait vraiment ici."

However, Marilyn seems disturbed for two days (in fact, since the civil marriage on Friday ): she is nervous, anxious and contains about herself, as noted by Milton and Amy Greene. Milton has also phoned to Irving Stein, Marilyn's lawyer, asking him to "be ready in case of trouble of last minute." While Marilyn prepares herself in the bedroom, Milton tooks the opportunity to discuss with her: "I have not seen you smile all the day. You're very sure of what you do ? ( ... ) Do you really want to this marriage ? You are not required on it, you know. If you want to stop everything, it's not complicated, " says Milton. Tears begin to flow on the face of Marilyn and Amy comforts her by saying "We can put you in a car to go out softly by the door behind the house. We will attend the guests. Civil marriage certainly could be canceled before the religious ritual come to bring solemnity to the union." And Marilyn answers calmly, "No, I think I don't want to marry." Milton leaves the room and is about to oust everyone but Marilyn recalls him: "No, Milton ! We have invited all these people, we can't do that, we can't let down them !"
According to Amy, Marilyn saw a bad omen in the car accidental of journalist Maria Scherbatoff whi diead (on June 29, just before the press conference with Miller in Roxbury): "But she also knew, omen or not, that she was making a terrible mistake by accepting this marriage." Moreover, another friend of Marilyn says:
"She wasn't sure that she loved him, but she wasn't sure she didn't. At the core of her confusion, though, was her sense that she was in over her head with this man. Her insecurity were running wild by this time. She couldn't help but Wonder what this intellectual wanted with her, and it was driving her crazy. Was he just looking for a trophy wife, as Joe had ? What was really going on here".


Pendant ce temps, le Rabbin Robert Goldberg et les invités patientent dans le living-room. Milton Greene accompagne Marilyn à la sortie de la chambre pour la mener au bras de Lee Strasberg, qui joue ainsi le rôle du père de substitution de la mariée en la menant à l'autel. La cérémonie, qui a lieu devant la cheminée de marbre du living-room, ne dure qu'à peine 10 minutes et se célèbre selon le rituel juif. Les époux boivent le vin rouge: Marilyn soulève son voile pour déposer ses lèvres sur la coupe. Elle prononce un "je le veux" d'une voix douce et tremblante. Ils s'échangent les alliances: au cours des deux jours précédents, Miller avait acheté un anneau d'or chez Cartier qui portait l'inscription: "A. à M., juin 1956. Maintenant Pour Toujours." Puis, Miller casse son verre en l'écrasant de ses pieds, en souvenir de la destruction de Jérusalem, et la foule s'écrie: "Mazel Tov!"
Meanwhile, Rabbi Robert Goldberg and guests wait in the living room. Milton Greene accompanies Marilyn from the bedroom and lead her to the arm of Lee Strasberg, who plays the role of a surrogate father to the bride, leading her to the altar. The ceremony, which takes place in front of the marble fireplace in the living-room, lasts just 10 minutes and is celebrated according to the Jewish ritual. The couple drink red wine: Marilyn raised her veil to submit her lips on the cup. She delivers an "I do " in a soft, tremulous voice. They shall exchange alliances: in the previous two days, Miller has bought a gold ring from Cartier's which bore the inscription: "A. to M., June 1956, Now For Ever." Then Miller crushes his glass under his feet, in remembrance of the destruction of Jerusalem, and the crowd cried "Mazel Tov!"

Ensuite, le repas du mariage prend des airs bucoliques, avec l'organisation d'un lunch en plein air dans le jardin.
Au menu: homard, dinde et champagne, ainsi que la pièce montée (les Miller s'étaient adressés à huit pâtissiers avant d'en trouver un qui accepte de la confectionner en quelques heures). Marilyn et Arthur coupent ensemble les tranches, et s'embrassent sans retenue. Arthur Miller, habituellement stoïque, se montre très attentionnée et enchanté de sa nouvelle épouse; et Marilyn semble très heureuse. Depuis plusieurs mois, les proches de Miller ont observé une aisance physique qui l'avait complètement transformé. Norman Rosten dira: "Le conte de fées était devenu réalité. Le Prince était apparu, la Princesse était sauve." Marilyn écrira au dos d'une photographie du mariage: "Espoir, Espoir, Espoir."
Then, the wedding meal takes bucolic aspect, with the organization of a lunch outside, in the garden.
On the menu: lobster, turkey and champagne and the wedding cake (Millers had approached eight pastry before finding one who agrees to make it in a few hours). Marilyn and Arthur cut the slices together, and kiss each other without restraint. Arthur Miller, usually stoic, is very caring and delighted with his new wife, and Marilyn seems very happy. For several months, Miller's closest friends have observed a physical ease that has completely transformed him. Norman Rosten will say that "The fairy tale came true. The Prince appeared, the Princess was safe." Marilyn wrote on the back of the wedding photography "Hope, Hope, Hope."

15/09/1954 NYC - Sur le tournage de The Seven Year Itch partie 3

Sept ans de réflexion
Sur le tournage - scène 11   

Date: le 15 septembre 1954, à une heure du matin.
Lieu: entre la 51 et 52st Street, au croisement de Lexington Avenue.
Scène: il s'agit d'une scène mythique, l'une des plus célèbres de l'histoire du cinéma, qui reste sans doute la "scène la plus vue au monde", celle où la robe blanche de Marilyn se soulève entraînée par l'air d'une grille de métro. La presse en parla comme de "l'exhibition la plus intéressante depuis Lady Godiva".

Date: September 15, 1954, at one o'clock.
Location: between 51 and 52st Street on the corner of Lexington Avenue.
Scene: it is a mythical scene, one of the most famous in the history of cinema, which is probably the "most scene view in the world," the one where the white dress of Marilyn Monroe rises, driven by the blow of the subway grate. The press spoke of as "the most interesting exhibition since Lady Godiva".


Le tournage de cette scène eut des conséquences dans la vie privée de Marilyn Monroe en jouant un rôle déterminant dans sa relation de jeune mariée d'avec Joe DiMaggio: l'accès de jalousie de son époux. Au départ, Joe DiMaggio n'avait nullement l'intention de se rendre sur le lieu de tournage: il se trouvait dans un bar, à quelques pâtés d'immeubles de là, avec son ami Georges Solotaire. Mais sachant peut-être pertinemment qu'il avait tort, il fini par accepter de s'y rendre, après maintes insistances de son ami, l'influent journaliste people Walter Winchell, qui l'emmèna sur le lieu du tournage. Ensemble, ils traversèrent les cordons des policiers et se postèrent à côté de la première caméra. Joe ne put supporter de voir des milliers de gens déshabiller sa femme du regard des heures d'affilées et marmonna :"Qu'est-ce que c'est que ce cirque ?" et, en s'adressant à Winchell: "Je te l'ai dit que je n'avais rien à foutre ici ! Partons !". Choqué, il quitta le plateau plein de rage. Sans doute Walter Winchell avait prévu la réaction de Joe et parvint à le convaincre de venir sur le plateau, afin d'alimenter ses propres rubriques à potins. Une fois les prises de vues terminées, Winchell entraîna ensuite Joe dans la loge de Marilyn, qui, affalée dans un fauteuil, salua Joe: "Salut Giuseppe !"; Winchell percevant que sa gaieté n'était pas naturelle. D'ailleurs, presque aussitôt, une dispute entre le couple éclata, jusqu'au dîner. Winchell, gêné, finira par quitter le repas. De retour au Saint Regis Hotel, où le couple séjournait, ils eurent une violente dispute, et l'on rapporte que Joe devint brutal avec sa femme. Le caméraman chef opérateur du film, Milton Krasner, qui occupait une chambre au Saint Regis, fut réveillé par des hurlements de colère de l'autre côté du mur. Gladys Whitten, la coiffeuse de Marilyn, raconta que le lendemain matin, Marilyn lui a dit qu'elle avait appelé en criant de toutes ses forces Gladys et l'habilleuse. Gladys racontera plus tard: "(...) son mari était fou furieux et l'a battue. (...) Des coups aux épaules, on en voyait les traces; mais on les a fait disparaître avec un peu de crème teintée et elle a continué le travail." Amy Greene, la femme du photographe Milton Greene, rendit aussi visite à Marilyn pour essayer un vison: "J'étais assise sur le lit, dans son vison, et Marilyn commence à se déshabiller. (...) Elle enlève son corsage: elle était pleine de bleus dans le dos, je n'arrivais pas à y croire. (...) Elle ne savait quoi dire, et comme ce n'était pas une menteuse, elle dit simplement: 'Eh oui'. (...)".
Le lendemain de la dispute, le 16 septembre, c'est pourtant avec Joe que Marilyn reprit l'avion pour regagner la Californie. Trois semaines plus tard, la Fox publiera un communiqué de presse annonçant que le couple se séparait.

The filming of this scene had consequences in the private life of Marilyn Monroe playing a key role in its relationship with Joe DiMaggio: the jealousy of her husband. Initially, Joe DiMaggio did not intend to go to the set: he was in a bar a few blocks of buildings there with his friend George Solotaire. But perhaps knowing full well he was wrong, he finally agreed to go there, after much insistence of his friend, the influential people journalist Walter Winchell, who took him at the place of the shooting. Together, they crossed police cords and stayed next to the first camera. Joe could not bear to see thousands of people seeing his wife undressed by the air for hours and he muttered: "What is this circus ?" and, in addressing Winchell: "I have told you that I had nothing to do here. Let's go!". Shocked, he left the set full of rage. Winchell probably foresaw the reaction of Joe and managed to convince him to come on the set, in order to feed his own topic to gossip. Once the shooting ended, Winchell led Joe into the lodge of Marilyn, who slumped in a chair, bowed Joe: "Hi Giuseppe !" Winchell perceiving that his cheerfulness was not natural. In fact, almost immediately, an argument between the couple broke up until the dinner. Winchell, embarrassed, leaved during the meal. Back to St. Regis Hotel, where the couple stayed, they had a heated argument, and it is reported that Joe became violent with his wife. The cameraman cinematographer of the film, Milton Krasner, who occupied a room at the St. Regis, was awakened by screams of anger on the other side of the wall. Gladys Whitten, the hairdresser of Marilyn, told the next morning that Marilyn said she had called and shouted with all his might Gladys and her dresser. Gladys said later: "(...) her husband was mad and beat her (...) Shots shoulders, we saw the traces, but it was the away with a bit of tinted moisturizer. And she continued to work. " Amy Greene, the wife of photographer Milton Greene, also made a visit to Marilyn to try a mink: "I was sitting on the bed in her mink and Marilyn begins to undress (...) She takes off her blouse: it was full of bruising in her back, I could not believe it (...) She did not know what to say, and as she was not a liar, she simply said.. 'Yes' (. ..) ".
The day after the fight, in September 16, it is with Joe that Marilyn took the plane back to California. Three weeks later, Fox will announce that the couple were separated.

Marilyn Monroe comparaît au tribunal municipal de Beverly Hills City Hall, devant le juge Charles J. Griffin, pour trois infractions routières, datant du 21 novembre 1954, où, sur Wilshire Boulevard, elle conduisait sans permis de conduire à présenter, une conduite alors que le permis était expiré, et une conduite trop lente. Elle ne s'était alors pas présenté à la citation à comparaître.
Accompagnée de son avocat Irving L. Stein, elle plaide coupable aux trois chefs d'accusation dans l'affaire "Les gens contre Marilyn Monroe DiMaggio".
De nombreux journalistes et photographes (une vingtaine) sont présents. Le juge lui dit "Vous pensez peut être que c'est une bonne publicité. Pour votre information, j'ai reçu de nombreuses lettres et il semblerait que votre soit disant public ne pense pas qu'il s'agisse là d'une bonne publicité." Marilyn lui répond: "Je suis vraiment désolée pour tous les ennuis que je cause. Mais je n'étais plus en Californie." car Marilyn était en effet partie vivre à New York. Ce à quoi le juge rétorque: "Les lois sont faites pour tout le monde, que l'on s'appelle Miss Monroe ou non. Ce genre d'agissement ne vous apportera pas d'Oscar."
Elle paie une amende de 56 $ au procureur Ray Brainard (composée de 5 $ pour les amendes routières, 50 $ pour ne pas avoir comparu et 1 $ pour les frais de tribunaux).
Marilyn Monroe appears at the municipal court in Beverly Hills City Hall, before the Judge Charles J. Griffin for three traffic violations, dated on 21 November 1954, when, on Wilshire Boulevard, she was driving without an operator's license, driving after her license had expired, driving too slowly and failing to appear after a citation was issued.
Accompanied by her lawyer Irving L. Stein, she pleaded guilty to the three counts in the case "People vs. Marilyn Monroe DiMaggio".
Many journalists and photographers (about twenty) are present. The judge says "You may have the idea that this is a good publicity. For your information, I have received many letters and it would seem that your so-called public doesn't think it's such good publicity." Marilyn replies: "I'm very sorry for all the trouble I caused. But I was out of California." because Marilyn was indeed gone to live in New York. What the judge retorted: "The laws are made for all of us, whether our name happens to be Miss Monroe or not. Well, this kind of acting won't bring you an Oscar."
She pays a fine of $ 56 to the prosecutor Ray Brainard (composed by $ 5 for traffic fines, $ 50 for failing to appear and $ 1 for court costs).

Heritage Auction 07/2012

lot n°46001: A Marilyn Monroe Signed Black and White Photograph, Circa 1956
A Marilyn Monroe Signed Black and White Photograph, Circa 1956. An original print with a matte finish, depicting the star in one of her legendary glamour poses, her blue fountain pen ink inscription on the right side reads "To Roy, / Love & Kisses and - / thanks for keeping me / out of the clink! / Marilyn Monroe." (Please note there are slight creases in all four corners, especially the lower left one, plus a few minor chips to the surface, but the overall image and signature are not affected.) 14" x 11"
PROVENANCE: The "Roy" noted above was Beverly Hills police officer, Roy Garrett, who joined the force in 1946, and who had a habit of asking movie stars to send him an autographed photograph (which most did - see various lots throughout this auction). He evidently let Marilyn go without a ticket as he received this from her in the mail a few days later.
Sold: $31,250.00

heritage-lot46001


Lot 46002: A Marilyn Monroe Signed Black and White Photograph, Circa 1955
A Marilyn Monroe Signed Black and White Photograph, Circa 1955. An original print with a matte finish, depicting the star in her most famous headshot, her white fountain pen ink inscription in the lower right corner reading "To Vern / It was a pleasure / to work with you / Love and Kisses / Marilyn Monroe;" "Vern" being Vernon Rickard, a bit player and "gofer" in the early days of Hollywood. (Please note there are many creases and wrinkles on lower margin that somewhat affect the autograph and there is a slight dent in the upper right corner.) 10" x 8"
Sold: $11,250.00

Lot 46003: A Marilyn Monroe Likely Final Signed Check, August 4, 1962
A Marilyn Monroe Likely Final Signed Check, August 4, 1962. From the star's personal checking account at City National Bank of Beverly Hills, check 281, penned in blue ballpoint ink (in another hand, possibly Eunice Murray's, MM's caretaker) reading "Aug 4 62 / Pilgrim / $228.80 / Two hundred twenty-eight and 80," signed in same ink in Marilyn's own hand "Marilyn Monroe," a red stamp on front reads "Paid / Aug 6 1962 / 901-1606," further stamps on back read in part "For Deposit Only / Pilgrim Modern Furniture" and "Santa Monica Bank.../ Aug 6 62;" included is a photocopy (not the original) of an invoice that Pilgrim's Furniture gave to MM (see below footnote). 3" x 6"
Coincidentally, two years ago, Heritage Auctions sold the original invoice that was given to Marilyn by this company [Pilgrim's Furniture then at 12217 Wilshire Boulevard in West Los Angeles] in Sale 7018, Lot 50225. That invoice was also dated August 4, 1962, so it appears that Pilgrim's made a delivery to MM's house and that she paid for her "Chest Roman white" on the spot with the above check from her personal checkbook. Interestingly, on that invoice, the evident delivery man wrote "Rec'd Check #281 in amount $228.80 / Payment in full / Earl Shero." At this point in time, this seems to be the last check Marilyn ever signed as she died that night, August 4, 1962. This check can be used to argue the point that Marilyn did not commit suicide -- would one be concerned with new furniture on the last day of one's life? Probably not!

Thirty-three total, all originals, each depicting Marilyn at age 24 posing in a fancy backyard during one photo session; 14 show MM wearing a black turtleneck, white shorts, and black strappy sandals as she sits on a chaise lounge chair; 18 show MM wearing a light-colored bikini and same sandals as she poses by a swimming pool; and one shows MM wearing a dark-colored bikini by the same pool; two depict other people in the shot with MM, evidently the photographer's assistants. (Please note some of these negatives are somewhat dirtied and scratched, but they still print up beautifully and MM is quite clear and vibrant-looking in all the shots.)
Each Negative: 2 1/2" x 2 1/2"
These photographs of Monroe were taken on October 10, 1950 by Bob Beerman, a staff photographer at 'Modern Screen' magazine. A few of the images did appear in a 1951 issue of the magazine, though not all of them. Additionally, the current owner published seven of them online, but the majority of these photographs have never before been seen.

Meryman, Jr., on Life letterhead, dated "February 10, 1962," regarding an interview for the magazine and how MM would be able to "destroy negatives" (of photos she didn't like); months later, Meryman finally did get his interview, but sadly, it would be Marilyn's last one. 11" x 8 1/2"

Lot 46016: A Marilyn Monroe Legal Form, 1953

This is an odd document, possibly relating to MM's voice and musical coach, Hal Schaeffer, though the last name is spelled differently on this form. Schaeffer, who was having an affair with MM as she was divorcing Joe DiMaggio, unwittingly became part of the infamous 'Wrong Door Raid,' but this piece pre-dates that event by almost two years -- perhaps it relates to a different person altogether.

8/04/1955 Person to Person

1955_person_cap_01Le 8 avril 1955, l'émission de télévision Person to Person, présenté par Edward Murrow sur CBS, diffuse une interview de Marilyn Monroe et de Milton Greene en direct. Amy Greene, la femme de Milton, et le chien du couple sont présents; l'interview a d'ailleurs lieu dans la maison des Greene à Weston, dans le Connecticut, où Marilyn logea pendant près d'une année. L'interview dure une dizaine de minutes et fut soigneusement préparée des semaines à l'avance: Marilyn avait rencontré Ed Murrows pour travailler sur les questions à aborder. C'est Milton qui commence l'interview en parlant de son métier de photographe et montre quelques-unes de ses photographies accrochées au mur (Audrey Hepburn, Ava Gardner, Marlene Dietrich, son fils Joshua, Marilyn Monroe...); puis il se rend dans le salon et la cuisine où l'attendent Marilyn et Amy, assises devant une table. Marilyn et Amy sont interviewées; à la moitié de l'entrevue, ils vont tous s'asseoir sur le sofa du salon. Marilyn parle des MM Productions, de sa carrière à Hollywood et son désir de s'améliorer en tant qu'actrice. Angoissée et timide, Marilyn semble mal à l'aise et Amy Greene va même parfois jusqu'à répondre à sa place. Les photographies du tournage sont de l'équipe de CBS: le directeur technique Sandy Bell, les cameramen Carl Prince et Marty Tuck; et du photographe professionnel Irving Haberman.
