Fête for Marilyn Monroe de Bob Willoughby

Fête for Marilyn Monroe

bob_ray-1“My agent Charles Block called to tell me that 20th Century Fox had a press call for a party that was to honor Marilyn Monroe, and he wanted me to cover it. Ray Anthony, the popular band leader, had written a song called Marilyn and there would no doubt be other celebrities to photograph.

I told him that I just didn’t feel this was my kind of photography, but the logic of his argument was too irresistible: “You need money to pay the bills, and anything you get on Monroe will sell!”

Reluctantly, I went. There were at least 50 other Hollywood photographers there, waiting for Marilyn to arrive. Fox had flown Marilyn from the studio to the party in a helicopter, hoping to make a dramatic entrance. As the chopper was landing, the downdraft blew all of the umbrellas, the sheet music from the orchestra, several ladies’ hats and God knows what into the pool. I was standing up above, laughing at this scene.

The photographers all rushed toward the landing helicopter, and I just stood where I was. And then an amazing thing happened: Marilyn walked right up to me, with all of the other photographers trailing behind her. For one very brief moment, I had her alone. It was probably the only single shot made of her like that, and it was just pure luck.

As I was about to take the photograph, and looking down at her through my reflex viewfinder, I could feel the hairs on the back of my neck rising. Marilyn had some sort of energy field that it would seem she could switch on or off when she posed, which I don’t think I will ever see again. Hollywood’s publicity departments called it sex appeal and thought it was achieved by showing cleavage, but they missed the point. This attractive energy is something you are born with. It is there to see at any age. Some people have more, some less, and I prefer to call it gender.”

The Star Makers: On Set with Hollywood's Greatest Directors

The Star Makers:
On Set with Hollywood's Greatest Directors
Biographie Photographies
Auteurs: Bob Willoughby, Sydney Pollack

thestarsmakersDate de sortie: octobre 2003
Broché 351 pages
Langue: anglais

Éditeur: Merrell
ISBN-10: 1858942330
Prix éditeur: 21,30 Euros
Ou le commander ? sur amazon 

Description:  This book collects Willoughby's candid photographs from the sets of various great films since the 1950s. Also included are filmographies of the directors with whom he has worked. As the subtitle indicates, he really has collaborated with many of the great cinema luminaries. Beginning with Vincente Minnelli (whose name is misspelled "Minelli" throughout), they include Orson Welles, William Wellman, George Stevens, Mike Nichols, William Wyler, Alfred Hitchcock, and others too numerous to mention. Willoughby passes along some old gossip about the behavior of some of the major stars and much trite commentary (e.g., "the first problem a new director must face is taking control"). Although there is a foreword by Sidney Pollack, there is no author's introduction to set the work in context. The most interesting aspect of this book is indisputably the photos (most of them black and white), many of which were shot in informal settings, showing directors and actors in seemingly unguarded moments. This is basically a coffee-table book for browsers and as such is recommended only for very inclusive general collections.-Roy Liebman, California State Univ. Lib., Los Angeles Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

3/08/1952 Ray Anthony Party

Le 3 août 1952, Marilyn Monroe est l'invitée d'honneur de la fête Ray Anthony Party, organisée par l'attaché de presse de Ray Anthony, Red Doff, et par la Fox pour promouvoir leur nouvelle star, car Marilyn accédait peu à peu à une certaine notoriété: elle était en tournage du film Niagara et son film Don't bother to knock était encore à l'affiche sur les écrans américains et de grandes pancartes publicitaires étaient disposées pour promouvoir le film. La fête s'est tenue dans la villa de Ray Anthony à Sherman Oaks, dans le district de Los Angeles, situé dans la vallée de San Fernando, avec près de 500 invités (Sammy Davis Jr, Mickey Rooney). Ventura Boulevard a été embouteillée pendant des heures. Marilyn est vêtue de la robe rouge du film Niagara.
Le magazine Look couvre l'événement. Les photographes présents: Bob Willoughby, Leni Carlson, Bruno Bernard, Phil Stern et Earl Theisen.

Bob Willoughby: avec Jean Seberg et avec Judy Garland

Né le 30 juin 1927 à Los Angeles, il fut, dès son plus jeune âge, fasciné par le cinéma. A ses 12 ans, il reçut en cadeau un appareil photo, de là, va naître sa passion pour la photographie, qu'il va étudier à l'Université de Californie et travailler pour le designer Saul Bass.
chet_bakerEntre 1948 et 1954, ses expositions photographiques sur les musiciens de jazz et les danseurs l'amènent à signer un contrat avec Globe Photos. Fan de Jazz, il adorait Billie Holiday, Chet Baker et Cole Porter.
Plus tard, il travailla pour le magazine Harper's Bazaar où ses photographies illustraient les articles sur l'art et la culture. Puis il fut désigné par six magazines pour photographier Judy Garland Judy_Garland_Life_Magazine_Coverpendant le tournage d' "Une étoile est née" ("A Star is Born") en 1954. il fut ainsi licencié par les studios Warner pour avoir signer un contrat de vente de photos avec des magazines. Mais sa photo de Judy Garland fit la couverture du célèbre magazine Life, sa première couverture de Life, le magzzine le plus populaire des Etats-Unis.

Ce qui l'amena à travailler ensuite sur de nombreux tournage de films: "My Fair Lady", "Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf ?" ("Qui a peur de Virginia Woolf ?"), "The Graduate" (Le lauréat) et "Rosemary’s Baby".

Willoughby photographia Marilyn Monroe au moins à deux occasions: la première en 1952, à une fête donnée en l'honneur de Marilyn, à l'époque où tournait le film Niagara, et la deuxième, en 1960, sur le tournage de "Let's Make Love" ("Le Milliardaire").

Willoughby photographia toute sa vie durant. Dans les années 1970, il s'installe en Europe: il vécut 17 ans en Ireland, où il prit beaucoup de clichés du pays pour illustrer d'anciens poèmes irlandais. Ses dernières années, il les a vécu en France, à Vence, où il poursuivait toujours activement son activité professionnelle. Il était marié à Dorothy Willoughby, avec qui il a élevé quatre enfants.
