Lot 488 MARILYN MONROE ARCHIVE OF PHOTOGRAPHS BY JOSEPH JASGUR
 An archive of photographs of Marilyn Monroe taken by Joseph Jasgur in 1946. The photographs were taken of a 19-year-old Norma Jeane Dougherty, before she was Marilyn Monroe. Taken in Los Angeles for Blue Book Modeling Agency, these photographs comprise one of Monroe’s first modeling portfolios. It was this portfolio she presented to Ben Lyon, the casting director at 20th Century Fox who signed her to the studio and shortly after changed her name. Jasgur’s images of Norma Jeane Dougherty mark the beginning of her career and offer us a unique glimpse of Marilyn Monroe, before she was Marilyn.
All prints in this lot are from these early photoshoots and are directly from the estate of Joseph Jasgur. Included in the archive are approximately 400 color and black and white later prints, size 11 by 14 inches; approximately 120 black and white gelatin silver prints, size 8 by 10 inches; approximately 10 black and white gelatin silver prints, size 11 by 14 inches; some oversize prints, contact prints, and a wooden camera tripod used by Jasgur. Some prints are signed or stamped by the photographer, others are not. Print dates vary. Condition varies.

Two black and white double-exposure photographs of Marilyn Monroe (circa 1946), both having photographer’s stamp on verso. Approximately 11 by 14 inches each. Reference: Similar photographs from this session can be seen on pages 210-232 of de Dienes’ book Marilyn (Taschen, 2002). De Dienes met 19-year-old aspiring model Norma Jeane Dougherty in 1945 after requesting a model from her agents at Blue Book Modeling for a then upcoming project. They immediately bonded and traveled together through the western states to capture Norma Jeane in various natural settings. During that trip, they became romantically involved and were briefly engaged. After their romance ended amicably, de Dienes continued to photograph Norma Jeane and well into her career as Marilyn Monroe. The chemistry between the two was undeniable; his work captured some of the finest images of the star. Many of the photographs can be seen in his book titled Andre de Dienes / Marilyn (Taschen, 2002).

 A 16mm reel of behind-the-scenes footage shot on the set of The Misfits (Seven Arts, 1961). The reel comes with the original envelope that is addressed to Marilyn Monroe from United Artists.

Accompanied by a document from UA titled “The Making of ‘The Misfits’/ (Narration for a 20-minute featurette)” with a personal note to Monroe affixed to the cover page.
The film begins with Monroe arriving in Reno, Nevada, with husband Arthur Miller and being received at the airport, then driving through Reno. The next scene appears to be a press conference with Monroe and co-stars Clark Gable, Montgomery Clift, Eli Wallach, Kevin McCarthy, and Thelma Ritter, director John Huston, and Miller.
The approximately 19-minute film goes on to show a variety of behind-the-scenes activities of the cast and crew beginning with the filming of Monroe and Ritter in a street scene that was cut from the final version of the film.
Other segments include Monroe at Harrah's Casino taking refreshment with Ritter, Huston, and a dog Monroe attempts to feed; the cast on location; street filming in Reno with the cast in a vehicle followed by a parade of observers; Monroe signing autographs; Monroe greeting and getting on a horse; shots of the cast being filmed riding together; aerial images of the set; a baseball game being played on set; a football being tossed on set with Miller and Huston joining in the game; and Monroe lounging with two other women on the hood of a car. The last part of the film shows the filming of a Misfits scene where Monroe is swimming and playing with a dog in the water. The very last image is of Monroe running from the water to embrace Gable. No audio. Accompanied by a DVD copy of the film.

M comme Monroe, Gladys

Gladys Pearl Monroe
( 1902 - 1984 )
Mère de Marilyn Monroe

banner_gladys

Gladys Pearl Monroe (appelée aussi Gladys Baker, Gladys Mortensen, Gladys Eley) naît le 27 mai 1902 à Porfirio Diaz (aujourd'hui nommé Piedra Negra) au Mexique et est la première des deux enfants de Della Mae Hogan et Otis Elmer Monroe (les grands-parents de Marilyn). Son existence est déclarée civilement cinq jours après sa naissance (le 1er juin) à un juge civil mexicain. Son père, Otis, travaille dans les chemins de fer mexicains depuis 1901. Après la naissance de leur fille Gladys, la petite famille retourne aux Etats-Unis, menant une vie itinérante le long de la Côte Ouest, jusque dans le Nord des Etats-Unis pendant un an, puis s'installent à Los Angeles au printemps 1903 où son père décroche un emploi à la Pacific Electric Raimway. Ils vivent dans un petit bungalow d'une seule pièce dans la 37ème Rue Ouest (secteur sud du centre-ville). C'est là que naît le frère de Gladys, Marion Otis Elmer (l'oncle de Marilyn), en 1905. La famille vit dans une certaine précarité et n'a pas de foyer stable (ils vivent dans près de onze foyers différents -maisons ou appartements- entre 1903 et 1909). Gladys et Marion vivent ainsi leur enfance dans la pauvreté et l'insécurité, sans pouvoir se lier d'amitié avec des amis de leurs âges.

1906-gladys-4ans 

En 1907, la santé de son père Otis Elmer se dégrade. Porté sur la boisson et souffrant de troubles de la mémoire, son état s'empire rapidement: maux de tête, tremblements, instabilité émotionnelle avec des accès de rage, des crises de larmes et même des attaques cardiaques. L'été 1908, suite à une crise, Otis se retrouve à moitié paralysé. Admis à l'hôpital 'Southern California State Hospital' à Patton, en Californie, en novembre 1908, où sa mère Della espace de plus en plus ses visites car Otis ne reconnaît même plus son épouse, il y meurt, le 22 juillet 1909, à l'âge de 43 ans. Il était atteint de parésie, le stade ultime de la syphilis qu'il avait contracté au Mexique, à cause des piètres conditions d'hygiène. C'est ainsi que seulement âgée de 7 ans, Gladys se retrouve orpheline de père. Gladys souffrira beaucoup de l'absence de son père. Sans doute terrifiée par le fulgurent déclin mental de son mari, Della Mae racontera à ses enfants que leur père était devenu fou, à cause de l'alcool et de sa vie désordonnée. Pourtant, le dossier médical qu'on lui avait remis après la mort d'Otis, explique qu'il était décédé d'une maladie organique et non d'une maladie mentale.
Se retrouvant veuve à seulement 33 ans, sa mère
Della Mae vit une deuxième jeunesse en fréquentant de nombreux hommes qu'elle reçoit chez elle entre 1910 et 1911, avant de se marier le 7 mars 1912 avec Lyle Arthur Graves, un aiguilleur en chef à la Pacific Electric, où il avait travaillé avec Otis. Ils vont vivre dans la maison de Graves, au 324 bis South Hill Street dans la partie nouvelle du quartier d'affaires de Los Angeles. Lyle semble être un bon beau-père, offrant des cadeaux aux enfants de Della. Mais le couple ne tient pas, Otis étant aussi porté sur la boisson que son précédent mari, et ils divorcent le 17 janvier 1914.

A la fin de l'année 1916, Della Mae loue une chambre dans une pension de famille au 26 Westminster Avenue sur la toute nouvelle plage du district de Venice, en Californie, au sud de Santa Monica. Le propriétaire de la pension de famille s'appele John Baker et l'engage pour diriger sa propriété pendant qu'il s'occupe d'une salle de jeux sur la plage. Della envoie son fils Marion, âgé de 11 ans, vivre chez des cousins à San Diego car elle pense qu'un garçon doit être élevé par un homme, et seule Gladys reste vivre auprès de sa mère. Gladys est une jeune fille coquette, brillante, expansive, aux cheveux châtains clairs, parlant d'une voix limpide et haut perchée, au rire facile, et à la recherche d'attention des hommes mûrs (sans doute en lien avec son enfance, était-elle à la recherche d'une figure paternelle). Sa mère, Della, ne tarde pas à rester bien longtemps seule et elle fréquente un veuf, Charles GraingerCette nouvelle liaison rend Gladys malheureuse, qui se braque contre le nouveau compagnon de sa mère, en lui opposant un silence absolu, et se montrant de très mauvaise humeur. Gladys devient alors un boulet pour Della, qui avait peur de perdre Charles Grainger. C'est alors qu'elle décide de la marier.

1917-05-17-baker_wedding_certificat1Gladys, qui n'a alors que 14 ans, commence à avoir un certain succès auprès des hommes. Et c'est Jasper Newton "Jap" Baker (le fils de John Baker, qui est pompiste ou releveur de comptes à gaz selon les biographes) âgé de 26 ans, qui, aidé de Della Mae, certifie que Gladys était en âge de se marier, 18 ans (alors qu'elle n'en avait que 15) sous prétexte que les preuves de sa date de naissance ont disparu suite aux nombreux déménagements, et l'épouse le 17 mai 1917 (certificat de mariage ci-contre). En fait, Gladys était enceinte de deux mois au moment du mariage. Della assiste gaiement au mariage et donne sa chambre de Westminster Street aux jeunes mariés, pour, de son côté, emménager dans le bungalow de Charles Grainger. Gladys et Jasper Baker ont deux enfants: un fils Robert 'Jack' 'Kermit' Baker (le demi-frère de Marilyn) qui naît le 10 novembre 1917, et une fille Berniece Inez Gladys (la demie-soeur de Marilyn) qui naît le 30 juillet 1919.
A la naissance de Berniece, le couple donne l'adresse de Della Monroe (1410 Coral Canal Court) sur le certificat de naissance. C'est ainsi qu'à 17 ans, Gladys se retrouve épouse et mère de deux enfants. Cependant, suite à son enfance chaotique, l'exemple d'une vie mouvementée de sa mère, ayant connue de nombreux beaux-pères, et par son jeune âge (elle est encore adolescente), Gladys se montre peu maternelle avec ses enfants, dont l'envie serait plutôt de sortir pour aller s'amuser. Il lui arrive d'ailleurs de confier s
es enfants à des voisins pour sortir dans les bals et fêtes organisés sur les plages, pendant que son mari travaille de longues heures comme représentant de commerce.

1916-gladys_john_baker-1 

Au cours de l'année 1921, le couple part en voyage à Flat Lick, dans le Kentucky, ville d'où est originaire Jasper, pour rendre visite à la famille de celui-ci. Durant le trajet, pendant que Gladys et Robert se disputent, leur fils Jackie tombe de la voiture dans un virage et se blesse à la hanche. Robert, furieux, reproche à Gladys son manque d'attention. Pendant leur séjour à Flat Lick, Gladys part un jour en randonnée dans les bois avec Audrey, le frère cadet de Jasper. Bien que Jasper est bel homme, il est jaloux de son frère. Quand Gladys revient de la promenade, Jasper la frappe avec une bride dans le dos. Gladys s'enfuit et part en ville, où elle y montre son dos aux passants, en hurlant et pleurant qu'elle a peur de son mari. Finalement, elle revient et ils repartent ensemble avec les enfants pour retourner en Californie. Un jour, elle surprend son mari avec une autre femme dans la rue (d'après ce que rapportera plus tard Gladys à Berniece). C'en est trop pour Gladys qui finit par demander le divorce en 1921 selon les motifs suivants: "Cruauté extrême sous forme de mauvais traitements, d'insultes et de langages orduriers à son égard et en sa présence, de coups et blessures." John rétorque que sa femme a une conduite impudique et lascive.

Après avoir quitté le domicile conjugual, Gladys loue un bungalow au 46 Rose Avenue, à Venice, qu'elle partage avec sa mère Della Mae. Gladys avait signé le bail sous le nom de sa mère Della Monroe, et sous-loue deux des chambres, afin d'être payée comme gérante, ce qui lui permet de verser 100$ par mois aux propriétaires absents, Adele Weinhoff et Susie Noel.
Fin juin 1922, le dernier chèque du loyer n'avait pas été posté. Une dispute éclate entre Gladys et Della, chacune accusant l'autre de dilapider l'argent. N'ayant d'emploi ni l'une ni l'autre, l'essentiel de leurs revenus leur était versé par Charles Grainger, le compagnon de sa mère, et le reste consistant en une modeste somme qu'envoyait Jasper Baker. La courte expérience de colocataires entre mère et fille prend fin en juillet 1922, sous une menace d'expulsion. Della, avec la permission de Charles Grainger, part alors vivre dans un bungalow vide qu'il posséde à Hawthorn.

1923-05-11-divorceLe divorce de Gladys et John est prononcé le 11 mai 1923 et Gladys obtient la garde des enfants (jugement de divorce ci-contre). Mais lors d'un week-end de garde, déjà bien avant que le divorce ne soit prononcé, Jasper ne ramène pas les enfants -Robert et Berniece- et les emmène dans sa ville d'origine Flat Lick dans le Kentucky, pour s'installer chez sa mère, pensant que les enfants recevront une meilleure éducation et de son côté, il espère recommencer sa vie.
Leur fils Robert, qui garde des séquelles de sa blessure à la hanche, boite. Il est hospitalisé dans un hôpital de Louisville et porte un plâtre à la jambe.
Quand à Gladys, qui souhaite récupérer ses enfants mais qui reste sans nouvelles, elle se rend à San Diego car elle pense que Jasper y a trouvé un emploi et s'y est installé. Puis elle reçoit un courrier de son ex beau-frère l'avertissant que Jasper et les enfants se trouvent à Flat Lick. Elle s'y rend donc en demandant de l'aide à sa belle-soeur Myrtle (la soeur de Jasper) qui non seulement refuse, mais va avertir Jasper. C'est alors que Jasper et sa mère cachent Berniece et avertissent les médecins de l'hôpital pour empêcher Gladys d'emmener son fils. Mais Gladys n'abandonne pas: elle s'installe à Louisville et y trouve un emploi de femme de ménage, en attendant que l'état de Robert s'améliore. Gladys va rester presqu'une année, vivant chez la famille Cohen (Margaret et John 'Jack' Cohen), où elle officie en tant que nounou de leur fille de trois ans, prénommée Norma Jeane (d'où l'origine du prénom de Marilyn Monroe et non pas Norma pour Norma Talmadge et Jean pour Jean Harlow comme bon nombre de biographes pensent). Il semblerait que Gladys aurait reporté tout son amour maternel sur la petite fille, allant jusqu'à projeter de la kidnapper pour l'emmener avec elle à Los Angeles.
De son côté, Jasper se remarie. S'avouant vaincue, ne pouvant voir ses enfants que de façon irrégulière, et réalisant qu'elle ne pourra jamais les récupérer définitivement, Gladys décide de repartir à Los Angeles et va finir par perdre de vue ses enfants.
Marilyn écrira plus tard: "Ma mère dépensa toutes ses économies pour récupérer les enfants. Finalement, elle les retrouvera dans le Kentucky où ils vivaient dans une belle maison. Leur père s'était remarié et vivait dans l'aisance. Elle le rencontra mais ne lui demanda rien, pas même d'embrasser les enfants qu'elle avait recherché pendant si longtemps."

mmfather1A Los Angeles, Gladys parvient à trouver un emploi dans la florissante industrie du cinéma: elle travaille six jours sur sept comme monteuse pour la Consolidated Film Industries, puis pour la Columbia et enfin pour la RKO. A la Consolidated Film Industries, elle se lie d'amitié avec une collègue, la surveillante Grace McKee. A la fin de l'été 1923, elles dédicent alors de partager un appartement au 1211 Hyperion Avenue (aujourd'hui le Silver Lake) à Los Angeles, à quelques kilomètres à l'Est de Hollywood. Gladys change d'apparence et teint ses cheveux en rouge cerise. Les deux femmes -Gladys et Grace- mènent une vie joyeuse de femmes célibataires, se promenant en ville et faisant beaucoup la fête. Un collègue de Gladys, Vernon S. Harbin dira que Gladys "avait la réputation d'être un pilier de bar". Mrs Leila Fields, qui travaillera avec Gladys à la RKO, dira d'elle: "C'était une belle femme, une des plus belles femmes que j'ai eu le privilège de rencontrer. Elle avait bon coeur, était une bonne copine et était toujours de bonne humeur avant sa maladie."
C'est aussi dans cette usine -la Consolidated Film Ind.- que Gladys rencontre un bel homme, Charles Stanley Gifford (le père "présumé" de Marilyn, portrait photographique ci-dessus), un véritable coureur de jupons, éléguant et distingué.

edward_mortenson Pendant l'été 1924, Gladys fréquente assidûment un homme, Edward Mortensen (photographie ci-contre) immigrant norvégien, bel homme qui est un bon parti, avec un travail stable. Ils se marient le 11 octobre 1924. Mais Gladys, sans doute trop frivole et incapable de partager une vie maritale, se lasse très vite de sa nouvelle vie; elle confie à Grace que la vie avec son mari est certes convenable, mais ennuyeuse à mourir et à peine quatre mois après son mariage, elle quitte le domicile conjugual le 26 mai 1925 pour aller revivre avec Grace. Le couple finit donc par divorcer. Et Gladys de reprendre sa vie légère faites d'aventures et d'amusement entre amis. Elle renoue quelques temps une liaison avec Charles Stanley Gifford.
En 1924, elle retourne tout de même dans le Kentucky afin de revoir ses enfants mais ces derniers sont restés trop longtemps éloignés de leur mère, et aussi probablement manipulés; pour eux, leur mère n'est qu'une étrangère. Gladys se résoud à laisser la garde définitive à leur père.

A la fin de l'année 1925, Gladys se retrouve enceinte. Elle donne naissance à une petite fille qu'elle prénomme Norma Jeane Mortenson (future Marilyn Monroe) le 1er juin 1926. A l'hôpital, dont le séjour est payé grâce à une collecte de ses collègues, elle affirme que ses deux premiers enfants sont décédés. Elle déclare que le "père" de l'enfant est Martin Edward Mortensen, son précédent mari, mais il semblerait que le père soit Charles Stanley Gifford, son collègue qu'elle fréquente épisodiquement depuis 1923 et qui l'aurait abandonné dès qu'il aurait su qu'elle était enceinte. Cependant, des biographes citent d'autres pères potentiels, tous des collègues de Gladys: Harold Rooney, Clayton MacNamara, ou encore Raymond Guthrie qui avait fait une cour enflammée à Gladys au cours de l'année 1925.
Plusieurs années après, Gladys sympathisera avec une jeune infirmière Rose Anne Cooper qui rapportera les propos de Gladys: "Elle disait qu'elle avait été intime avec un certain nombre d'hommes et elle parlait de son passé, disant ouvertement que lorsqu'elle était jeune, elle était 'très sauvage' comme elle disait. Cependant, pour elle, le seul genre d'intimité pouvant mener à une grossesse était celle qu'elle avait partagé avec 'Stan Gifford'. Elle avait toujours été ennuyée par le fait que personne ne semblait vouloir la croire, mais que c'était la vérité. Elle disait que même sa propre mère ne la croyait pas. 'Tout le monde pensait que je mentais ou que je ne le savais pas. Je savais. J'ai toujours su', racontait-elle".
Elle ne réclamera jamais de soutien ni moral ni financier à Charles Stanley Gifford.
Marilyn Monroe racontera plus tard: "Elle ne parlait presque jamais sauf pour dire "Ne fais pas tant de bruit, Norma." Elle me disait ça même quand j'étais au lit le soir avec un livre. Même le bruit d'une page de livre qu'on tournait l'agaçait. Il y avait un objet dans l'appartement de ma mère qui me fascinait. C'était une photographie accrochée au mur. Il n'y avait rien d'autre sur les murs que cette photographie encadrée. Chaque fois que je rendais visite à mère, je restais plantée devant en retenant mon souffle tellement j'avais peur qu'elle m'ordonne d'arrêter de la regarder. Un jour, elle m'a surprise ainsi, mais elle ne m'a pas grondée, bien au contraire. Elle m'a fait monter sur une chaise pour que je la vois mieux. Elle m'a dit :"C'est ton père." J'étais tellement bouleversée que j'ai failli tomber de la chaise. C'était si bon d'avoir un père, de pouvoir regarder sa photo et de savoir que j'étais de lui. Et quelle merveilleuse photo, en plus ! Il était coiffé d'un grand chapeau mou qu'il portait incliné sur le côté. Il avait des yeux rieurs et pleins de vie et une petite moustache à la Clark Gable. Cette photo me réconfortait... J'ai demandé à ma mère comment il s'appelait. Elle ne m'a pas répondu. Elle est allée s'enfermer dans sa chambre."

Après la naissance de l'enfant, Gladys rentre chez elle avec son bébé, au 5454 Wilshire Boulevard. Mais le 13 juin 1926, soit douze jours après la naissance de Norma Jeane, Gladys place le bébé dans une famille d'accueil -les Bolender- qui vivent à Hawthorn, à environ 25 km de chez elle, et non loin d'où vit Della Mae. Gladys avait echoué dans son rôle de mère avec ses deux premiers enfants, et avec son travail à plein temps et son goût pour les plaisirs et sorties, elle est incapable d'élever une enfant. C'est d'ailleurs sa mère Della Mae qui lui a conseillé de placer le bébé chez une famille d'accueil, les Bolender, un couple sérieux et dévot qu'elle connait bien, puisqu'ils sont voisins. Cependant, cette situation semble n'être que temporaire pour Gladys: elle s'installe quelques temps chez les Bolender, avant de retourner vivre chez elle et de verser 25 Dollars par mois à la famille d'accueil. Elle rend aussi visite à sa fille le week-end, comme le racontera Wayne Bolender: "Gladys venait presque tous les samedis vers midi. Il lui arrivait de passer la nuit ici, mais généralement, elle avait un rendez vous le samedi soir ou bien elle était invitée à une soirée, auquel cas elle repartait pour Hollywood au bout de quelques heures." Marilyn racontera plus tard que quand sa mère venait la voir, jamais elle ne lui montrait une marque d'affection; elle lui parlait à peine, ne l'embrassait pas et ne lui souriait pas: "C'était la belle dame qui souriait jamais. Je l'avais vue souvent auparavant mais je ne savais pas exactement qui elle était. Quand je lui ai dit:"Bonjour Maman", elle m'a regardée avec stupeur. Elle ne m'avait ni embrassée ni prise dans ses bras, elle ne m'avait jamais tellement parlé."
Sans doute les Bolender aurait peut être voulu adopter Norma Jeane, comme ils l'ont fait avec d'autres enfants dont ils s'occupaient, mais Gladys s'y est opposée, espérant reprendre un jour sa fille.
Le 18 août 1926, le divorce d'avec Mortenson est prononcé.

Au début de l’année 1927, Gladys s'installe chez sa mère Della Mae qui rencontre de sérieux problèmes de santé; elle est notamment atteinte de fréquentes infections respiratoires. Malgré le surcroît de transport en trolley pour aller à son travail, Gladys s'occupe de sa mère et se retrouve ainsi aussi dans la même rue des Bolender, ce qui lui permet alors de voir plus fréquemment sa fille.
La maladie du coeur de sa mère s'aggrave rapidement, suivie d'une profonde dépression: elle souffre de délires, d'euphorie, de sautes d'humeur, de colères et d' hallucinations. Elle est hospitalisée au Norwalk State Hospital  le 4 août 1927 où on lui diagnostique une myocardite aiguë (inflammation du coeur et des tissus environnants ) et elle y décède le 23 août 1927, à l'âge de 51 ans, d'un arrêt cardiaque pendant une crise de folie. Gladys s'occupe des funérailles, faisant enterrer sa mère auprès du premier mari de celle-ci et père de Gladys, Otis Elmer Monroe, au Rose Hill Cemetery, à Whittier. Gladys sombre dans la déprime, mais parvient à faire face au deuil et reprend son activité de monteuse pour les studios de cinéma (à la Columbia et à la RKO).

Pendant sept ans, Norma Jeane va rester chez les Bolender, recevant la visite de sa mère qui de temps en temps, la prenait pour un week-end. En 1933, lorsque Norma Jeane est atteinte de la coqueluche, Gladys va rester quelques jours chez les Bolender, puis quelques temps après, elle retire sa fille de chez les Bolender car la petite restait inconsolable après la mort de son chien Tippy, tué par un voisin. Marilyn se souviendra: "Un jour, ma mère est venue me voir. J'étais en train de faire la vaisselle. Elle me regardait sans dire un mot. Quand je me suis retournée, j'ai été surprise de voir ses yeux pleins de larmes. Elle m'a dit: "Je vais faire construire une maison et nous y vivrons toutes les deux. Elle sera peinte en blanc et il y aura un petit jardin derrière."
Elles vivent ensemble dans l'appartement de Gladys au 6021 Afton Place, situé près des studios de Hollywood où elle travaille comme monteuse en free-lance avec son amie Grace. Gladys et Grace emmènent parfois Norma Jeane visiter les studios d'Hollywood, mais aussi au cinéma pour aller voir les derniers films sortis. La même année, en 1933, Gladys obtient un prêt de 5000 Dollars de la Mortgage Guarantee Company de Californie pour acheter une maison meublée de six pièces, dont trois chambres, au 6812 Arbol Street, près de Hollywood Bowl. Dans la maison, il y a aussi un piano demie-queue blanc de la marque Franklin (ayant appartenu à l'acteur Fredric March) qui a séduit Gladys. Pour faire face aux charges, Gladys loue une chambre de la maison à un couple d'anglais, George Atkinson, sa femme et leur fille. Pour Norma Jeane, c'est un nouveau mode de vie, elle expliquera plus tard: "La vie devint désinvolte et tumultueuse, c'était un changement radical après ma première famille. Quand ils travaillaient, ils travaillaient dur, et le reste du temps, ils s'amusaient. Ils aimaient danser et chanter, ils buvaient et jouaient aux cartes et avaient un tas d'amis. A cause de mon éducation religieuse, j'étais affreusement choquée -j'étais persuadée qu'ils finiraient tous en enfer. Je passais des heures à prier pour eux."
A cette époque, Norma Jeane ressent les premiers attraits vers le cinéma. Pendant les vacances scolaires, elle reste des heures dans les salles de cinéma, comme elle le racontera plus tard: "J'étais assise, toute la journée, quelques fois une partie de la nuit -face à l'écran tellement grand pour une petite fille comme moi, toute seule, et j'adorais ça. Rien ne m'échappait de ce qui se passait - et il n'y avait pas de pop-corn à l'époque."
Le 17 août 1933, le fils de Gladys, Robert 'Jackie Kermit' Baker qui vit dans le Kentucky avec son père, décède à l'âge de 16 ans des suites d'une infection rénale. Le garçon était atteint d'une tuberculose osseuse déclarée après son accident à la hanche quand il était petit. Gladys n'avait plus aucun contact avec ses enfants de son premier mariage. Robert 'Jackie' n'a donc jamais revu sa mère et n'a jamais su l'existence de sa demie-soeur Norma Jeane.

Le 29 mai 1933, le grand-père de Gladys qu'elle n'a jamais connu, Tilford Hogan, s'est pendu. Gladys prend peur: son père et sa mère sont morts dans des hôpitaux psychiatriques, après des phases de démence; elle reste donc persuadée que ces problèmes sont héréditaires et que sa santé mentale est en jeu. Peu à peu, elle entre en dépression et est soignée par médicaments. En janvier 1934, Gladys fait une crise d'hystérie, tremblante et recroquevillée sous l'escalier. Les Atkinson se voient obligés d'appeler une ambulance qui emmène de force Gladys à l'hôpital Los Angeles General Hospital. Cet événement va marquer Norma Jeane à jamais; Marilyn se souviendra plus tard: "Soudain, il y eu un bruit épouvantable dans l'escalier, à côté de la cuisine. Je n'avais jamais rien entendu d'aussi effrayant. Des coups et des bruits sourds qui semblaient ne jamais devoir s'arrêter. J'ai dit :"Il y a quelque chose qui tombe dans l'escalier." L'anglaise m'a empêcher d'aller voir. Son mari est sorti et il est revenu dans la cuisine au bout d'un certain temps en disant: "J'ai fait appeler la police et une ambulance." J'ai demandé si c'était ma mère et il m'a répondu :"Oui, mais tu ne peux pas la voir." Je suis restée dans la cuisine et j'ai entendu des gens arriver et essayer d'emmener ma mère. Personne ne voulait que je la voie. Tout le monde me disait: "Sois mignonne, petite, reste dans la cuisine. Elle va bien. Ce n'est rien de grave!" Mais je suis sortie quand même et j'ai jeté un coup d'oeil dans l'entrée. Ma mère était là, debout. Elle hurlait et elle riait en même temps. Ils l'ont emmenée à l'hopital spychiatrique de Norwalk. Celui où on avait emmené le père de ma mère et ma grand mère quand ils avaient commencé à hurler et à rire ( ..) J'ai longtemps continué à entendre le bruit épouvantable dans les escaliers, avec ma mère qui hurlait et riait pendant qu'ils l'entrainaient hors du havre familial qu'elle avait tenté de construire pour moi". En février 1934, Gladys est autorisée à rentrer chez elle, mais elle est à nouveau hospitalisée pendant plusieurs mois dans un asile de Santa Monica, puis transférée au Los Angeles General Hospital et en décembre, elle rejoint le Norwalk State Hospital. Gladys va passer les quarante années suivantes entre diverses institutions. Il semble qu'elle souffrait de troubles mentaux et ne pouvait mener une vie normale hors d'un encadrement spécialisé. Cependant, les soins apportés à cette époque étaient quelques peu rudimentaires et il est possible qu'un traitement non adapté n'ait fait qu'empirer son état.
Durant cette période difficile, les Atkinson et Grace McKee s'occupent alternativement de Norma Jeane, qui parvient à voir sa mère lors de rares week-end où Gladys est autorisée à sortir; lorsque c'est le cas, Gladys, Grace et Norma Jeane vont déjeuner à l'Ambassador Hotel. Marilyn confiera: "Je veux tout simplement oublier tout le malheur, toute la misère qu'elle a eus dans sa vie, et tous ceux que j'ai eus dans la mienne. Je ne peux pas oublier, mais j'aimerais essayer. Quand je suis Marilyn Monroe et que je ne pense pas à Norma Jeane, cela marche quelquefois."
Le 15 janvier 1935, Gladys est déclarée aliénée, souffrant de schizophrénie paranoïde, par les médecins du Norwalk State Hospital. Le rapport du médecin chef déclare : "Sa maladie se caractérise par des préoccupations religieuses et par une dépression profonde et une certaine agitation. Cet état semble chronique".

Le 25 mars 1935, Grace McKee devient la représentante légale de Gladys, par décision de la Cour Supérieure de Justice de Californie. Le bilan de la situation financière de Gladys est dressé: elle dispose de 60$ sur son compte en banque, de 90$ en chèques non endossés sur une assurance, d'un meuble de radio (d'une valeur de 25$ dont 15 n'ont pas été payés et sont dus au magasin); ses dettes s'élèvent à 350$ sur une Plymouth et de 200$ d'arriérés sur le piano blanc.
Pour combler les dettes, Grace revend la voiture à son précédent propriétaire, vend le piano pour 235$, et revend le crédit de la maison.

En 1938, Gladys tente de s'enfuir du Norwalk State Hospital. Elle racontera avoir reçu des appels téléphoniques de Martin Edward Mortensen, son précédent époux, ce qui est impossible car celui-ci est décédé dans un accident de moto neuf ans auparavant. Cependant, il existe un homonyme, un homme se nommant aussi Martin Edward Mortensen, vivant à Riverside Country en Californie, qui revendiquera bien longtemps après la paternité de Marilyn et pour lequel on retrouvera dans ses affaires après sa mort, le 10 février 1981, des documents le liant à Gladys (les papiers de mariage et divorce, mais aussi le certificat de naissance de Norma Jeane).
Après cette tentative d'évasion qui a échouée, Gladys est transférée au Agnew State Asylum, un établissement adapté pour les personnes souffrant d'hallucinations schizophrénique, situé à San José, près de San Francisco. C'est à partir de ce moment que Norma Jeane verra que très peu sa mère. Un jour, Grace emmène Norma Jeane à la pension de la clinique où vit Gladys: cette dernière ne lui adresse pas la parole jusqu'au moment de partir, où elle dit à sa fille: "Tu avais de si jolis petits pieds".

Durant l'Hiver 1938, Gladys écrit une lettre à sa fille Berniece, l'envoyant à Flat Lick chez les parents de Jasper. Mais ces derniers étant décédés, le facteur a transmis la lettre au frère de Jasper qui vit aussi à Flat Lick, qui la renvoie à son tour à Jasper qui vit désormais à Pineville, en Louisianne. Dans cette lettre, Gladys explique à Berniece qu'elle a une demi-soeur, Norma Jeane, âgée de douze ans, qui vit chez les Goddard (Grace McKee s'est mariée à Ervin Goddard en 1935). Gladys supplie aussi Berniece de la sortir de l'Agnew State Hospital, et lui donne l'adresse de sa tante (la soeur de Della Monroe), Dora Hogan Graham, qui vit à Portland, dans l'Oregon. Berniece répond à sa mère en lui informant qu'elle a contacté diverses personnes (dont Dora) et qu'elle va tout tenter pour la faire sortir.

En 1945, Dora Hogan Graham, qui vit à Portland, intervient auprès des autorités pour qu'on laisse sortir Gladys, qui en retour, accepte de vivre avec sa tante pendant un an. L'été 1945, l'hôpital 'Agnew State Hospital' la laisse alors sortir avec 200$ et deux robes, déclarant que Gladys ne représente plus un danger ni pour elle, ni pour les autres. Gladys part vivre chez sa tante Dora et trouve du travail en faisant le ménage et effectuant des soins non-médicaux à des patients en convalescence et invalides. Elle s'habille de blanc, comme une infirmière. Dora écrit une lettre à Berniece en lui racontant que Gladys s'intéresse beaucoup à la Science Chrétienne, et qu'elle souhaite soigner des gens malades sans l'apport de la médecine.
En novembre et décembre 1945, Norma Jeane voyage dans l'Ouest des Etats-Unis avec le photographe André DeDienes pour un reportage photographique: ils vont jusque dans le désert de Mojave et dans le Nevada. Lors de leur passage dans l'Oregon, ils font une halte à Portland pour rendre visite à Gladys où ils arrivent les bras chargés de cadeaux. Mais après des années passées dans des institutions, Gladys est devenue totalement asociale, fermée sur elle-même et très amaigrie. Ces retrouvailles vont marquer profondément Norma Jeane: e
lle embrasse sa mère et lui montre les photos prises par Dedienes. Gladys reste murée dans son silence, vissée dans son fauteuil. DeDienes racontera plus tard: "La rencontre entre la mère et la fille manquait de chaleur. Elles n'avaient rien à se dire. Mrs Baker était une femme d'un âge incertain, émaciée et apatique, ne faisant aucun effort pour nous mettre à l'aise. Norma Jeane faisait bonne figure. Elle avait déballé nos cadeaux: une écharpe, du parfum, des chocolats. Ils restèrent où nous les avions posés, sur la table. Il y eut un silence. Puis Mrs Baker cacha son visage dans ses mains et sembla nous oublier complètement. C'était très pénible. Apparement, ils l'avaient laissée sortir trop tôt de l'hopital." Déboussollée, Norma Jeane s'agenouille auprès de sa mère qui finit par lui murmurer: "J’aimerais tellement vivre avec toi Norma Jeane." Retenant ses larmes, Norma Jeane embrasse sa mère et lui laisse son adresse et son numéro de téléphone avant de partir. En reprenant la route avec Dedienes, elle restera inconsolable, ne cessant de pleurer. En effet, Gladys reste plus ou moins une étrangère pour Norma Jeane qui ne l'a, finalement, que très peu connue. De plus, Norma Jeane vient de signer un contrat de modèle et aspire à faire carrière. Elle se sent donc incapable de prendre soin de Gladys qui souffre de problèmes mentaux.

Gladys insiste et ne cesse d'implorer sa fille Norma Jeane lui réclamant de l'aide. En avril 1946, Norma Jeane cède et envoie de l'argent à sa mère pour qu'elle la rejoigne à Los Angeles. Elles partagent deux petites chambres louées par Norma Jeane, en dessous de chez "tante" Ana Lower, sur Nebraska Avenue. Gladys n'est pas en forme; elle est obsédée par la Science Chrétienne et découvre, par le biais des pouvoirs guérisseurs d'Ana Lower, les possibilités de l'esprit sur la maladie et étudie ainsi dévotement de nombreux livres sur ce thème. Elle assiste aussi aux services de l'Eglise tous les dimanches. Eleanor 'Bebe' Goddard (la fille de Doc Goddard, le mari de Grace McKee) racontera: "Elle errait et était imprévisible. Elle était docile mais absente."
Un jour, Gladys, toute de blanc vêtue, se rend à l'agence de modèle de sa fille (BlueBook) et déclare à la directrice Emmeline Snively, en lui saisissant la main: "Je suis simplement venue vous remercier personnellement pour tout ce que vous avez fait pour Norma Jeane. Vous lui avez offert une nouvelle vie."
En août 1946, Berniece se rend à Los Angeles avec sa fille Mona Rae pour rendre visite à sa famille. A leur arrivée à l'aéroport de Burbank, Norma Jeane, Grace McKee, Ana Lower et Gladys sont venues les accueillir.

Après plusieurs semaines, Gladys rechute et doit à nouveau rejoindre l'hôpital Norwalk State Asylum. Grâce à ses salaires gagnés en tant que modèle, Norma Jeane envoie de l'argent pour améliorer la prise en charge de sa mère.
Gladys entretient une correspondance épistolaire avec Margaret Cohen (la mère de la petite Norma Jeane qu'elle gardait à Louisville en 1923); elle lui confie, dans une de ses lettres envoyée l'été 1946: "Mes propres filles ne me comprennent pas, elles n'essayent même pas". Gladys lui demande aussi des nouvelles de Norma Jeane Cohen, âgée désormais de 26 ans, souhaitant reprendre contact avec elle.
En février 1948, Gladys sort de l'hôpital et emmènage chez Ana Lower; elle trouve un emploi de femme de ménage.
Le 30 mai 1948, Gladys écrit une lettre à Berniece, lui reprochant notamment le fait qu'elle ne lui ait pas annoncée la mort de Tante Ana Lower, décédée le 14 mars, mais aussi car Berniece n'a pas répondu à sa dernière lettre:

Le 20 avril 1949, Gladys épouse John Stewart Eley, un électricien originaire de Boise, dans l'Idaho. Norma Jeane apprend la nouvelle par une lettre que lui a envoyée Grace. Mais John est déjà marié et son épouse vit à Boise.
En 1951, Marilyn demande à Inez Melson, l'administratrice de ses affaires, de faire des visites régulières à Gladys, pour s'assurer de son bien être tandis qu'elle continue à fréquenter diverses institutions. En 1952, Inez Melson persuade Marilyn qu'elle la désigne comme tutrice légale de Gladys. Gladys travaille dans une clinique privée à Homestead Lodge, près de Pasadena.
Le 23 avril 1952, John Stewart Eley meurt d'une affection cardiaque à l'âge de 62 ans et Gladys se retrouve veuve. La semaine suivante, l'existence de la mère de Marilyn est révélée par le journaliste Erskine Johnson: Marilyn a toujours dit qu'elle était orpheline; mais avec le scandale du calendrier où elle a posé nue en 1949 et qui fait surface cette année là, des journalistes curieux enquêtent et découvrent que sa mère n'est pas morte, contrairement à ce qu'a encore déclaré Marilyn la semaine précédente dans une interview pour Redbook, et que celle-ci a fréquenté des institutions psychiatriques. Marilyn accorde alors une interview, publiée le 3 mai 1952, qu'elle a préparée avec Sidney Skolsky, et y déclare notamment: "Je n'ai jamais connu ma mère intimement et, depuis que je suis adulte, je suis entrée en contact avec elle. A présent, je l'aide et veux continuer à l'aider tant qu'elle aura besoin de moi." Puis Marilyn reçoit alors une lettre implorante de sa mère: "Chère Marilyn, Je t'en prie, ma chère fille, j'aimerais avoir de tes nouvelles. Je n'ai que des soucis ici, et j'aimerais bien partir le plus vite possible. Je préfèrerais avoir l'amour de mon enfant que sa haine. Tendrement, ta mère." Gladys continue à entretenir aussi des relations avec sa fille Berniece: elle lui rend visite en Floride au cours de l'année 1952.

Le 9 février 1953, d'après les conseils de Grace McKee, Marilyn fait transférer Gladys dans un établissement plus confortable, l'institution privée Rockhaven Sanatorium, à Verduga City, afin de protéger sa mère contre les journalistes trop curieux; Marilyn paie alors 300$ par mois pour les frais d'hospitalisation.
Marilyn racontera: "Longtemps, j'ai eu peur de m'apercevoir que je ressemblais à ma mère et que je finirais comme elle dans un asile de fous. Quand je déprime, je me demande si je vais craquer, comme elle. Mais j'éspère devenir plus forte."

En 1959, Marilyn assure définitivement l'avenir financier de sa mère par un fonds de fidéicommis (qui désigne une disposition juridique -souvent testamentaire- par laquelle un bien est versé à une personne via un tiers). Pour Noël 1959, Gladys envoie ses souhaits à Marilyn, signant toujours du nom de son dernier époux décédé: "Loving Good Wishes, Gladys Pearl Eley":

Au cours du premier trimestre 1960, pendant que Marilyn tourne le film "Le Milliardaire" ("Let's Make Love"), elle donne une interview au journaliste George Belmont, à qui elle évoque notamment son enfance et sa mère. Elle déclare alors que sa mère est "morte".
Le 5 août 1962, le monde entier apprend le décès de Marilyn Monroe. Gladys en est très affectée; elle ne se rend pas à l'enterrement et fera plusieurs tentatives de suicide. Le 22 août 1962, elle écrit une lettre à Inez Melson, la remerciant de son soutien et rappelant qu'elle avait enseigné la science chrétienne à Norma Jeane: "I am very greatefull for your kind and gracious help toward Berniece and myself and to dear Norma Jeane. She is at peace and at rest now and may our God bless her and help her always. I wish you to know that I gave her (Norma) Christian Science treatment for approximately a year."

1962-08-22-gladys_letter_to_inez

Un jour, en 1963, elle s'enfuit de Rockhaven Sanatorium; elle est retrouvée le lendemain, dans une église de San Fernando Valley, serrant dans ses mains une bible et un livre de prières de la Science chrétienne.
Inez Melson déclarera: "La mère de Marilyn se consacrait toute entière à sa religion, la Science chrétienne, et était principalement préoccupée par le mal. C'est là que se situait ses dysfonctionnements. Elle pensait avoir fait quelque chose de mal dans sa vie, et qu'elle serait punie pour cela."

Le 27 avril 1966, elle est transférée au Camarillo State Hospital où elle y reste un an. Elle reçoit régulièrement la visite de Inez Melson:

En 1967, elle part vivre chez sa fille Berniece en Floride.
En 1970, c'est sous le nom de Gladys Eley qu'elle intègre la maison de retraite Collins Court Home, à Gainesville en Floride. Aux journalistes curieux qui tentent de l'approcher pour qu'elle leur évoque sa célèbre fille Marilyn, elle leur répond: "Ne me parlez pas de cette femme !". En 1972, elle déclare à James Haspiel, un fan de Marilyn qui l'a connu et suivi pendant de nombreuses années: "Je n'ai jamais voulu qu'elle fasse ce métier !"
En 1980, c'est Lawrence Cusak qui devient son tuteur légal.
Le 11 mars 1984, c'est à l'âge de 81 ans que Gladys meurt d'une crise cardiaque; elle est incinérée.

Photographies


lot 981: MARILYN MONROE INSCRIBED PHOTOGRAPH
A photograph of Marilyn Monroe mounted to board and inscribed on the board “Oh George,/ You’re a genius!/ Marilyn Monroe.” The black and white image was taken by Cecil Beaton and said to be Monroe’s favorite image of herself.
The consignor relates that in the late 1950s he attended an event at Frank Sinatra’s Palm Springs home as a guest of Sammy Davis Jr. The consignor remembers the photograph being given by Monroe, who was also a guest of Sinatra’s, to Davis’ valet, whom he named as “George.” This is a possible inaccuracy and may have been given to Frank Sinatra’s longtime valet, George Jacobs. The consignor was given the image by the valet George, who said he could not take the item back to Los Angeles. The consignor has had the photograph in his possession since that time.
