Lots Entertainment & Music Memorabilia - Heritage Auctions - 11/2017

Lots sur Marilyn Monroe des enchères
'Entertainment & Music Memorabilia'

organisées le 11 novembre 2017
par Heritage Auctions
à Dallas aux Etats-Unis.


Lot 89001: A Marilyn Monroe Unusual Inscribed 'Frame Glass' to Arthur Miller, Circa 1960.
A black and white photograph of the star circa 1956, looking wistful, housed in a black wooden frame with the glass signed by her in red wax pencil "I know when / I am not there / for you -- !!!" with her added line marks below forming what look like "X's" or "M's" or both but hard to decipher; consigned directly by the daughters of Aaron Frosch [Monroe's attorney] who said that when their father was handling MM's divorce from Arthur Miller, she gave Frosch a number of items she didn't want anymore, including this photograph which she evidently inscribed to Miller as an apology; interestingly, MM wrote this note with a colored wax pencil, the same kind she used to cross out images of herself on contact sheets that she didn't like; also intriguing to speculate about the photograph itself: it was likely a favorite of hers or Miller's and it was probably hanging somewhere in the couple's home where MM knew Miller would see her message on it.

15/06/1951 - Marilyn élue "girl we should most like to get a bear hug from"

Le 31ème régiment des "Ours Polaires" en Corée ont élu Marilyn Monroe "La fille avec qui nous aimerions le plus faire un câlin d'ours", devancant Corinne Calvet et Mitzi Gaynor.

The 31st "Polar Bear" Regiment in Korea elected Marilyn Monroe "girl we should most like to get a bear hug from", ahead of Corinne Calvet and Mitzi Gaynor.

Miss Monroe Still 31st Girl
SOMEWHERE IN KOREA
(Pac. S&S)—-Beauty judges of the 31st "Polar Bear" Regiment are beginning to doubt their choice of feminine pulchritude.
They selected beautiful Marilyn Monroe as the "girl we should most like to get a bear hug from." She outpointed curvacious Corinne Calvet and Mitzi Gaynor for the title.
The day after the selection, a GI in the regiment received a photograph from a Los Angeles paper covering the return of the USS Manchester from Korean waters. Smack in the middle of the picture was Marilyn Monroe—with three sailors. The trio and Marilyn were engaged in —a bear hug. The bosomy screen star is still number one "Polar Bear," but the boys hope she confines her hugging in the future to the regiment and lets the Navy find their own pin-ups.

The book also contains four pages of phone numbers, including neighbors, utilities, friends, secretaries, and professional colleagues, dated January 20, 1962; a list of the appliances in the kitchen and their cost; three pages regarding furniture and shipments from Mexico; approximately 36 business cards from various contractors; approximately 28 pages of notes on various renovation projects and to-do lists; a page with notes regarding terracing and planting the hillside; seven drawings of exterior floor plan for possible apartment above the garage for a cook; three renderings of options for a table and another decorative element for the home; and a listing of bills due as of August 16, 1962. The last page of the book lists "Moet - Champagne vintage 1952/ et Chandon a Epernay/ Cuvee Dom Perignon - 13.88." The book lists dates that furniture is due to be delivered from various suppliers, many after Monroe's death, as well as dimensions of each room of the home for the purpose of ordering "white India" carpet. It also has estimates to have the pool resurfaced, water heater moved, fountain built, and laundry room and shower expanded for people using the pool as well as notes about decoration of a "play room," fabrication of a new gate, bars for windows, and shelving to be built, among many other things.

Expo Marilyn Die Starke Monroe du 26/03 au 01/11/2015

expo-the_strength-1

Cette exposition de la collection de Ted Stampfler est une reprise de l'expo de 2014 Private Marilyn qui avait eu lieu en Suisse. Il y est présenté cette fois-ci près de 400 objets personnels ayant appartenu à Marilyn Monroe au Liechtenstein (entre la Suisse et l'Autriche).
L’exposition se penche sur la question de l’émancipation de la femme dans les années 50 à l’exemple de la femme la plus photographiée du XXe siècle: l’actrice, chanteuse et icône de la mode Marilyn Monroe. Elle présente la forte personnalité de cette femme exceptionnelle qui, 53 ans après sa mort, n’a rien perdu de la fascination qu’elle suscite et dont l’influence sur la société est encore perceptible aujourd’hui.
Le Musée national du Liechtenstein présente 400 objets qui proviennent initialement de sa succession et font actuellement partie de la collection privée Ted Stampfer, la plus grande collection de ce genre regroupant des objets ayant appartenu à Marilyn Monroe.
On peut y voir des vêtements luxueux, des accessoires personnels, des produits de beauté et de coiffure, des accessoires de cinéma, des documents privés, des films et des photos dont la présentation, dans cette constellation, est une première mondiale. Des objets prêtés par des collectionneurs du monde entier viennent compléter cette collection.
Les visiteurs plongent dans le monde de Marilyn et traversent chronologiquement les stades les plus importants de son évolution et les périodes déterminantes de sa vie. Ils découvrent des objets uniques qui témoignent de la vie et de l’œuvre de cette femme exceptionnelle tout en révélant son identité de femme émancipée. Pour cela, l’exposition s’intéresse aussi bien à l’évolution physique de Marilyn et au rôle qu’elle fait jouer à son corps, qu’à la manière très personnelle dont elle se rebelle contre une industrie cinématographique dominée par les hommes. Grâce à sa hardiesse, elle obtiendra entre autres de meilleures conditions contractuelles et des droits de codécision, mais pourra aussi fonder sa propre société de production cinématographique, ce qui lui assurera une plus grande indépendance.
Un catalogue éponyme accompagnant l’exposition est en vente dans la boutique du musée au prix de 20.00 CHF, ainsi que différentes autres publications.
Directeur général: Directeur Prof. Dr. Rainer Vollkommer
Administrateur et collectionneur: Ted Stampfer

> article de l'expo sur PR Newswire :
The special exhibition presents the emancipation of women in the 1950s through the example of the most photographed woman of the 20th century -- the actress, singer and style icon, Marilyn Monroe.
The exhibition here focuses on the strength behind the exceptional phenomenon who, even 53 years after her death in 1962, has not lost her charm and influence, which in society and the women's movement to this day is palpable.
Presented are more than 400 selected pieces from the private collection of Ted Stampfer, the world's largest collection of Marilyn Monroe originals of its kind. Through his willingness to present his collection in exhibitions, the art collector and expert wants not only to remember the actress, who was intellectually underestimated during her lifetime and reduced by filmmakers and media to her visual appeal, but also to make exhibit attendees aware of the clever and ambitious businesswoman. Most of the pieces originate from her estate, of which the items were stored after Marilyn Monroe's death in August 1962, until 1999, until large portions of it were put up for auction with auction houses like Christie's and Julien's. The exhibition is rounded out by individual pieces from other international collectors.
Uniquely designed and seen for the first time worldwide, the National Museum in Liechtenstein thus enables its exhibition visitors to dive into Monroe's world. Visitors walk through the most important chronological development stages of her life, and can view special exhibits that not only give a glimpse into her life and the work of this extraordinary woman, but also highlight her emancipated side. These include: high-quality articles of clothing; accessories; beauty, skincare and styling products; personal and film company documents; film props; and extensive photo and film footage presented by means of electronic media.
The exhibition, however, is not just focused on presenting personal belongings from a late actress. Rather, it focuses more on the unknown private person -- the real face behind the Hollywood icon. Thus, it gives an intimate look at the real person behind the fictional persona Marilyn Monroe. Using examples, visitors learn about an ambitious woman of the 1940s and 1950s, who, despite the prevailing gender roles of her time, reached her own set goals gradually and with great confidence.
Adressed is on the one hand, the outward makeover of a natural brunette girl, who became with the conscious use of her body the most desirable woman in the world. This is, for example, demonstrated with the original false eyelashes, various containers of makeup, articles and accessories used as highlights for her hair styling, which were significantly involved in the transformation process. But also Marilyn's favorite clothing is presented, including her white and checkered capri pants, which she liked to combine with a black turtleneck sweater. She wore them both in her private life as well as in important photo shoots (for example in the famous shoots with photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt and Milton Greene). These iconic photographs today show us not only a timeless beauty, but a self-confident woman, who was well aware of her own charisma.
In addition, the exhibition also highlights the public person and reports about the strong side of a woman who had to compete in a man's world in the 1950s. There are character traits and self-confident behavior demonstrated, which culminated at the height of Monroe's career to rebel against the male-dominated film industry. This courageous behavior led to, among other things, better contract terms and the ability to have more say over her career, plus to establishing her own film production company -- another way she became more independent. The exhibition presents original costumes, film props and important documents on the films that were produced by Monroe herself.
Besides the interest in her own career and her personal advancement, Marilyn Monroe was also involved in helping the disadvantaged and minorities. This is illustrated with the example of Ella Fitzgerald, the famous African-American jazz singer, for whom Monroe actively campaigned to obtain engagements in a hip nightclub that was typically reserved for white artists. Fitzgerald later reported that Monroe's influence and active action were instrumental in her international success as a singer.
The exhibition offers in all its aspects a comprehensive view of the strong-willed character of a woman who was ahead of her time. And it also reveals to the visitor that Marilyn Monroe, by her behavior in different ways, exerted a formative influence on the emancipation of women, making her one of the most important cultural and historical figures of the 20th century.
