Berniece recalls Monroe telling her that "The first time I saw my father, I was lying flat on my back in the hospital. I looked at him and I studied his face and features, and I saw that mother had told me the truth, that he was my father." Considering the fact that this is a get-well card, coupled with the fact Monroe stated to her half-sister Berniece that she first met her father when she was hospitalized, Gifford himself clearly hand delivered this card to Monroe when he visited her during one of her hospital stays. Given the fact that they ostensibly had no relationship prior to this one and only known meeting, it is highly unlikely that Gifford traveled across the country from his home in Hemet, CA to visit Monroe during one of her NYC hospital stays. Based upon all available information, the visit most likely occurred during one of her many hospitalizations in Los Angeles.
It has been widely reported that Monroe unsuccessfully attempted to contact her father by telephone many times over the years. Monroe persisted visiting the town of Hemet, California in an attempt to locate him which is confirmed by numerous locals reporting Marilyn Monroe Spottings in Hemet. It is believed that Gifford did not want to upset his wife and children by allowing Monroe to be part of his life.
This card is the only known material artifact that establishes any connection or communication between Gifford and his famous daughter. Monroe's mother Gladys dated Gifford in 1925, he was at the time her supervisor at RKO pictures. While working for him as a film negative cutter, Gladys became pregnant and gave birth to a daughter on June 1, 1926. Norma Jeane was Gladys third child. Although Gladys registered the surname Mortenson on Norma Jeane's birth certificate, using the name of her ex-husband instead of Gifford, it has been assumed for decades that Gifford was actually Marilyn Monroe's father.
Gifford was finally definitively proven to be Monroe's father through DNA testing in 2022. Although this card includes no warm salutation from the man that was indeed her father, it further complicates our understanding of the relationship, or what was believed to be the complete absence of a relationship with arguably the most important male figure in Monroe's life. Previous scholarship recounts Monroe's attempts to contact her father resulting in only bitter rejection and a broken heart, yet this card supports Berniece Miracles first-hand account and it is proof that he reached out to her in a time of need.

An original gouache and ink on paper costume sketch from the production of Joseph L. Mankiewicz's classic film All About Eve (20th Century Fox, 1950) by Edith Head.

Davis appears on-screen with Marilyn Monroe, in a breakthrough performance, wearing the gown. Head won the Oscar for Best Costume Design, Black-and-White for this Oscar winning Best Picture; Davis was nominated for Best Actress. The sketch is faintly penciled "for Bette Davis" to the right side, and initialed, possibly by Mankiewicz, near the right bottom hem.

Lot 258: MARILYN MONROE: MEDICAL FILE
A medical file pertaining to cosmetic surgery performed on Marilyn Monroe. The file includes facial X-rays and doctors' notes from the office of Dr. Michael Gurdin, M.D., and the X-ray office of Drs. Conti and Steinberg. Dr. Gurdin's chart on Monroe begins on July 14, 1958, and lists the patient as Marilyn Miller with addresses in New York and Los Angeles.
The chief complaint listed is "chin deformity" and goes on to give a medical history that begins in 1950 and ends in 1962. Listed are a 1956 bout of neutropenia in England; 1957 ectopic pregnancy in New York; and 1950 cartilage implant in chin that the doctor observed had slowly begun to dissolve. Those with knowledge of the implant procedure have explained that this was done in association with a tip rhinoplasty, a procedure involving the tip of Monroe's nose only, not the bones.
The last entry is dated June 7, 1962, and reports a fall at between 2 and 3 a.m. resulting in swelling and tenderness of the nose. Monroe was brought to Dr. Gurdin by her psychoanalyst, Dr. Ralph Greenson. Monroe was referred to Drs. Conti and Steinberg for X-rays. For her visit to the radiologists she was given the alias "Miss Joan Newman," and that name appears on the paperwork with Monroe's Brentwood home address.
Six X-rays are in the folder: a frontal facial bones X-ray; a smaller X-ray that is a composite of the right and left sides of her nasal bones; and four small dental X-rays into the roof of Monroe's mouth, looking upward toward the nasal bones. The conclusion, written by Dr. Conti and dated June 7, 1962, is that there was no damage to Monroe's nose due to her fall. A more recent evaluation of the X-rays indicates a very minute hairline fracture of this bone. Monroe had turned 36 less than a week earlier. On June 8, the following day, Monroe was fired from the film Something's Got to Give (20th Century Fox, 1962). 9 x 12 inches

Two letters with dates in 1952 and 1953 are from an aspiring songwriter and singer by the name of Mrs. John H. Spurgeon. Another letter is from Harold Mirisch dated May 7, 1959. Another letter on letterhead from The First Baptist Church dated December 4, 1958 is from a man named Bill Lennon, requesting Marilyn's permission to write to the TV show "What's My Line?" and list his occupation as secretary to Marilyn Monroe. Included is a very direct letter to Lennon in response, reading in part, "Miss Monroe would not under any circumstances permit the use of her name in any misrepresentation." Also included, a carbon-copy of a letter addressed to "John" dated February 1, 1960 (likely designer John Moore) asking if he'd been advised by the Railway Express Company about a message left at the Beverly Hills Hotel for Marilyn that read, "The dress you expected from Talmack was destroyed in a plane fire." Handwritten annotations on the letter list a "Mr. Clemens, Head of Air Department," and a phone number for the claims department, not in Monroe's handwriting. Overall a very interesting look at the types of issues Monroe dealt with on a daily basis.

From the personal files of Marilyn Monroe: A one-page typed letter from Ruth Edens, apparently an acquaintance of Monroe's from her childhood, dated August 24, 1954, and reading in part, "I have long intended to write you this letter because I have particularly wanted to say that when you used to visit me at my Balboa Island cottage, you were a shy and charming child whose appeal, it seems to me, must have reached the hearts of many people. I could never seem to get you to say much to me, but I loved having you come in and I missed your doing so after you'd gone away. I wondered about you many times and was delighted when I discovered you in the films. I hope the stories in the magazines which say you felt yourself unloved throughout your childhood, are merely press-agentry. In any case, I want you to know that I, for one, was truly fond of you and I'm proud of you for having developed enough grit to struggle through to success." The letter also states, "I hope you are getting much happiness out of life, little Marian [sic]. I saw so much that was ethereal in you when you were a little girl that I fell sure you are not blind to life's spiritual side. May all that is good and best come your way!? The letter is signed "Sincerely, Ruth Edens." 9 x 11 inches

Lot 288: MARILYN MONROE: ARTHUR MILLER HANDWRITTEN BOOK DEDICATION
A single piece of lined paper torn from a spiral-bound notebook, heavily stained, containing a notation in Miller's hand reading "This book is being written out of the courage, the widened view of life, the awareness of love and beauty, given to me by my love, my wife-to-be, my Marilyn. I bless her for this gift, and I write it so that she may have from me the only unique thing I know how to make. I bless her, I owe her the discovery of my soul."
Although the note is undated, Miller refers to Marilyn Monroe as his wife to be, indicating that it was written prior to their marriage on June 29, 1956. Although this dedication did not appear in any of Miller's books it was possibly intended to be used in A View from the Bridge, which Miller was rewriting as a two-act play during his courtship with Monroe. Because Miller was not officially divorced until June 1956, it is possible that the dedication was not used due to timing. 8.5 x 11 inches

The first page was published in the book Fragments and contains references to "The Sleeping Prince," an early production title for Monroe's film The Prince and the Showgirl, dating these writings to 1956.

She instructs herself to make a list of tasks and work on exercises, which perhaps explains the cryptic writings on the second page that did not appear in Fragments, reading in full, "From Ridding partly/ T Nautiousness [sic]/ Place/ personalization (A)/ weariness/ (J)/ (Ar)." 8.5 x 11 inches

Lot 434: MARILYN MONROE: PERSONALLY ANNOTATED "SOMETHING'S GOT TO GIVE" SCREENPLAY AND PAGES
A Something's Got To Give (20th Century Fox, 1962) mimeographed screenplay by Nunnally Johnson, 149 pages, blue cover dated March 29, 1962 reading "Final Confidential For Planning Purposes Only." The script, marked final, also dated March 29, 1962, contains notations in Monroe's hand throughout in pencil and green ink on 18 pages. Some of the notations are from Monroe's work with a Swedish dialect coach.
In addition to these notations, two typed pages of Monroe's dialogue are bound between pages 107 and 108 of the mimeographed script. These two pages contain Monroe's dialogue from one of the few scenes captured on film, with her extensive pencil notations. Raw footage of Monroe performing with Tippy the cocker spaniel and the children in this scene exists, and Monroe's notations are evident in the footage. The top of the page reads "Real Thought/ Mental Relaxation/ substitute children - B & J if necessary/ feeling - place the pain where it is not in the brow." B & J likely refers to Arthur Miller's children Bobby and Jane. Another notation next to one of Monroe's lines of dialogue reads simply "Mona Lisa," which does in fact mirror the expression she uses when delivering this line. Even the exaggerated "Ahhhhh---" that Monroe does at the beginning of each take in the raw footage is written on the page in her hand, reading in full, "Ahhh--Look for the light.?
The notations throughout the script also include notes in an unidentified hand criticizing certain points of the story, including "Too Harsh," "Naggy," "Dull" and many other comments. Overall, the notations in both the script and on the dialogue pages used by Monroe to film the scene with the children and Tippy the dog tell the story of a tedious script writing and editing process. Her dialogue notations are a revealing window into her process in performing some of the last scenes she ever recorded on film. 9.5 x 12 x 1 inches

Lot 451: MARILYN MONROE: DOG-RELATED POSTHUMOUS CORRESPONDENCE
An undated typed letter from Mrs. Edward Herdan of Los Angeles that reads:
"To whom it may concern: I was greatly taken aback when I saw the pet of Marilyn's in a picture with her. We were forced to put our pet to sleep on account of old age recently and she was a double of this little dog. We have been looking with grieving hearts for several months now, to find one that resembled our Shaggsy, but all in vain. If it were at all possible to get the dog we could give it an excellent home. Dr. Christenson of the Hollywood Cat and Dog Hospital was our Vet for fourteen years. Hope this request receives some consideration. Sincerely, Mrs. Ed Herdan."
Included is a copy of a letter from Inez Melson, Monroe's former business manager, dated September 4, 1962, reading:
"Dear Mrs. Herdan, I hope you will understand that I have not answered your kind letter about "Moff" before this because of the pressure of matters involving the affairs of Marilyn. I know how you must feel about your little "Shaggsy" and it would be wonderful if it were possible to send "Moff" to live with you. However, you will understand that her sister's dearest wish is to have him and I hope in due time to be able to send him to live with her. Unfortunately, in due process of law, even little "Moff" is a part of Marilyn's personal effects and thus, he has to wait. It grieves me greatly to refuse so many kind people and I only wish that I could grant the desire of each good person who would love "Moff" as his mistress loved him." The letter is signed, "Sincerely yours, Inez Melson, Administratrix of the Estate of Marilyn Monroe."
Frank Sinatra gifted the dog to Monroe in 1961. She named him Maf as a comic reference to Sinatra's mafia connections. Interestingly, people within Monroe's inner circle appear to be unaware of the correct spelling of the dog's name. Written correspondence reflects use of the names "Maff" and "Moff."

Lot 89217:Extremely Rare "The Models Blue Book" Featuring Marilyn Monroe's Early Appearance (1945).
Vintage original printed 90-page casting book of models, dated 1945-1946. Published by Emmeline Snively of the Bluebook Modeling Agency who is acknowledged to have discovered a very young Marilyn Monroe (then "Norma Jean Dougherty") working on an assembly line at a Radioplane factory. Snively was one of Monroe's earliest professional mentors with a great belief in the young model, and one who guided Monroe toward a career that would ultimately make her a legendary superstar. Marilyn appears on page-25 of the 8.5" x 5.5" book with her stats and a portrait photo by David B. Conover, who met Marilyn when she was working on the Radioplane assembly line in Van Nuys, California. Conover had been sent by the U.S. Army Air Force''s First Motion Picture Unit to shoot morale-boosting pictures of female workers and Marilyn immediately impressed him. She quit working at the factory in January 1945 and began modeling for Conover. Defying her deployed husband, she signed a contract with the Blue Book Model Agency in August 1945. The book exhibits age, handling with chipping and peeling to cover, spine, some cracking and spidering to the cover surfaces.

Lot 0521: "GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES" PHOTO-SHOOT RENTED BRACELET
A gold-plated sterling silver bracelet, designed by Joseff of Hollywood. The bracelet is composed of series of rectangular wirework links of foliate design, enhanced by brilliant-cut simulated diamonds, joined by fluted triangular shaped links with hinged locking clasp and safety chain, and mounted in gold plated sterling silver.
The bracelet was among a set rented for Marilyn Monroe in a series of Fox publicity photos shot by staff photographer Frank Powolny, used to promote the film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (Twentieth Century Fox, 1953). The bracelet was ultimately not photographed, but the photoshoot produced legendary images of Monroe wearing the racy gold pleated gown designed by Travilla for Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Although the gown was deemed to be too revealing because of its plunging neckline and was cut from the film, Monroe liked it and insisted on wearing it to the 1953 Photoplay Awards ceremony. She also wore it during this photoshoot, together with the rest of the jewelry set, producing some of the most iconic images of Monroe ever captured.
Length, 6.75 inches

Lot 0958: MARILYN MONROE: "HOW TO MARRY A MILLIONAIRE" PHOTO-SHOOT WORN EARRINGS (WITH MAGAZINE)
A pair of gold-tone floral basket pendant ear clips with faceted crystal beads, worn by Marilyn Monroe in promotional photos for How To Marry A Millionaire (Twentieth Century Fox, 1953). By Napier, no. MMF889. Each clip back earring is designed as a gold-tone flower basket, with wirework detail and sculpted flowers enhanced by faceted crystal beads, and suspended by a gold-tone floret centering a faceted crystal bead.
In the glamorous 20th Century Fox 1953 promotional photo shoot, Monroe posed in the earrings wearing a burgundy satin evening gown designed by William Travilla.
This set is one of two sets made for the photo shoot. Joan Castle had rented two pairs of earrings and other pieces including an engagement ring. One pair never made it back and the other was slightly damaged. This set was the former, which Marilyn had purportedly taken from the set as she was seen wearing them after the film wrapped.
Accompanied by a notarized letter of provenance from the husband of actress Carmen Miranda, as well as a vintage copy of Movieland magazine featuring Monroe on the cover wearing the earrings.

1988-1990, Jerry Hall dans le rôle de Cherie

Jerry Hall tenait le rôle de Cherie, jouée par Marilyn Monroe au cinéma, dans une version théâtrale de Bus Stop pour laquelle elle avait fait une tournée à travers les Etats-Unis (à Montclair dans le New Jersey, puis à New York - fin 1988 et début 1989) et en Angleterre (à Londres au Lyric Theatre, à Watford au Palace Theatre - fin 1989 et début 1990). Jerry Hall avait alors 33 ans et était une mannequin très demandée, reconnaissable par sa longue chevelure blonde et sa taille (1,82m) et connue internationalement pour être aussi la compagne de Mick Jagger, leader des Rolling Stones, depuis 1977 et avec qui elle avait eu à l'époque deux enfants (ils auront en tout quatre enfants: Elizabeth née en 1984, James né en 1985, Georgia May née en 1992 et Gabriel né en 1997).
Jerry Hall held the role of Cherie, played by Marilyn Monroe at the cinema, in a theatrical version of Bus Stop for which she would tour across the United States (in Montclair in New Jersey, then in New York - in late 1988 and early 1989) and in England (in London at the Lyric Theater, at Watford at the Palace Theater - late 1989 and early 1990). Jerry Hall was then 33 and was a very popular model, recognizable by his long blond hair and his height (around 6 feet) and known internationally to be also the girlfriend of Mick Jagger, leader of the Rolling Stones, since 1977 and with whom she had two children at the time (they will have four children: Elizabeth born in 1984, James born in 1985, Georgia May born in 1992 and Gabriel born in 1997).

Jerry_Hall-1989-Bus_Stop-pose-1-1  

Jerry Hall avait reçu de très bonnes critiques. Elle campait une Cherie en étant vêtue d'un costume de showgirl, mettant ainsi en valeur ses longues jambes, prenant des airs de vamp accentués par sa longue chevelure blonde la presse la faisant beaucoup comparer à l'actrice des années 1940s Veronica Lake, et débitant son texte avec son accent texan. Jerry Hall avait même ressenti des affinités proches avec le personnage qu'elle avait campé à l'époque: "Je venais de son milieu d'origine - une petite ville, une grande famille, pas beaucoup d'argent. J'ai eu tous ces grands rêves de réussite."
Jerry Hall received very good reviews. She played a Cherie wearing a showgirl costume, thus highlighting her long legs, taking vamp attitude accentuated by her long blonde hair that the press making her compare a lot to the 1940s actress Veronica Lake, and delivering his text with his Texan accent. Jerry Hall had even felt a close affinity with the character she had portrayed at the time: "I came from her kind of background--small town, big family, not a lot of money. I had all these big dreams about making it."

Elle faisait ici ses débuts au théâtre (elle enchaînera ensuite avec un rôle au cinéma dans le Batman de Tim Burton en 1989). La presse a eu tendance à comparer sa prestation à celle de Marilyn Monroe, ce à quoi répliqua Jerry Hall dans une interview: "J'aurais l'air idiote si j'essayais de copier Marilyn Monroe. Je n'avais pas vu le film depuis un moment. Je l'ai aimé, mais je ne voulais pas le regarder et essayer de piquer quoi que ce soit qu'elle avait fait. Je pense que beaucoup de critiques s'attendaient au film, qui est complètement différent de la pièce. C’est une pièce délicate. Il ne se passe pas grand-chose. Il s’agit de personnes seules en quête d’amour."
Car ce qui différencie le film de la pièce est que dans le film, un personnage crucial est absent: celui d'un pédophile d'âge moyen, le Dr Lyman; et le film a tendance à minimiser l'aspect sexuel de la relation de Cherie avec son amoureux de cow-boy effronté, interprété par Shaun Cassidy.
She made here her theater debut (she then will play a film role in Tim Burton's Batman in 1989). The press has tended to compare his performance to that of Marilyn Monroe, to which Jerry Hall replied in an interview: "I’d look silly if I tried to copy Marilyn Monroe. I hadn’t seen the movie for a while. I liked it, but I didn’t want to watch it and try to pick up any of the things she had done. I think a lot of the critics were expecting the movie, which is completely different from the play. It’s a delicate play. Not a lot happens. It’s about lonely people looking for love."
Because what differentiates the film from the play is that in the film, a crucial character is absent: that of a middle-aged pedophile, Dr. Lyman; and the film tends to downplay the sexual aspect of Cherie's relationship with her cheeky cowboy lover, played by Shaun Cassidy.

Lors de sa tournée en Angleterre où Jerry Hall s'était établie avec Mick Jagger et leurs enfants à Londres, bon nombre de photographes suivaient alors les sorties de la "mannequin actrice". Après les représentations sur scène, il arrivait souvent à Jerry Hall de sortir dans les endroits branchés de la capitale anglaise en compagnie du reste de la troupe, et parfois Mick Jagger les rejoignait: "Il est très fier de moi et il est tellement adorable", racontait alors Jerry Hall, précisant que Mick Jagger était alors venue la voir jouer sur scène 5 fois.
During his tour in England where Jerry Hall had settled with Mick Jagger and their children in a London house, numbers of photographers followed the "model actress". After the performances on stage, Jerry Hall often went out to the hip places of the English capital with the rest of the troupe, and sometimes Mick Jagger joined them: "He is very proud of me and he is so adorable" , said Jerry Hall, adding that Mick Jagger had come to see her play on stage 5 times.

Lot 586: 20th Century Fox Willys M38 Jeep (Serial #59350).
Manufactured by Willys Overland Motors Inc., Toledo, Ohio and delivered to the military in March 1952. The Willys M38 was introduced in 1950 as a post-WWII military Jeep, being a ¼ ton 4 x 4 utility truck, serving as a light tactical vehicle. The M38 is outfitted with “pioneer” tools (axe and shovel) mounted on the passenger side, protruding headlights with guard wires, air vent in base of windshield and blackout lights. Powered by a 2199 cc. inline 4-cylinder engine mated to a 3-speed manual transmission with 2-range transfer case and, unique to the M38, features a front-end differential disengagement lever operated from the inside. Features a studio-mounted non-firing de-milled prop .30-caliber Browning 1919 machine gun. Due to the relatively minor cosmetic differences between their WWII counterparts, M38 Jeeps were regularly used by the studios for WWII films as well as those depicting the Korean War. Although we are unable to definitively tie its use to any particular film, this Jeep was likely used in filming M*A*S*H (1970). The odometer reads an unverified 36,127 miles. This M38 underwent both cosmetic and mechanical restoration in 2008 as well as a recent brake rebuild. Electrical system has been restored to original 24-volt specifications. This Jeep was brought to Telluride, Colorado and driven all over town for the premiere of Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds. Debbie purchased this Jeep from 20th Century Fox with the Marilyn Monroe 1952 MG TD from Monkey Business. Mechanicals untested. Measures 133 in. long x 62 in. wide x 62 in. tall. Registered as a “Historical Vehicle” in California. In vintage good condition.
Estimate: $30,000 - $50,000 / Sold

Lot 444: Movie Star News archive (1 million++) Hollywood and entertainment photographs.
Massive archive of (1 million++) primarily gelatin silver 8 x 10 in. single- and double-weight glossy and matte photographs, as well as RC prints, color photos, color glos stills, and color mini lobby cards. A New York City institution for over 70 years, Movie Star News began life in 1938 as a used bookstore owned by siblings Irving and Paula Klaw. The business struggled until one day Irving noticed customers surreptitiously tearing pictures out of movie magazines. Sensing an opportunity, the Klaws began selling used film publicity photos. Demand was so high that Irving reached out to studio publicity departments directly for additional stock, and discovered that promotional materials were routinely discarded after the run of a film. He was able to acquire as many original photos as he wanted for next to nothing, and often, studio negatives, from which he started producing his own prints. The Klaws stopped selling books and started a mail order photo business in addition to the storefront operation, effectively establishing Hollywood and entertainment photography as a field of collecting. Comprising Movie Star News store stock as well as vintage source material, the breadth and scope of this resulting archive is likely unparalleled anywhere, featuring material on nearly every important star and movie in the history of American film production, from pre-Hollywood silent film period through the Golden Age, New Hollywood, the blockbuster era, and beyond. Every category, genre, and subgenre is represented, including drama, comedy, action, adventure, romance, pre-code, crime, film noir, sci-fi, horror (Universal, Hammer, and more), war, western, pin-up, cheesecake, beefcake, exploitation, sexploitation, Blaxploitation, etc. Additionally featuring television, music, stage, and adult subjects, the archive contains a near-complete narrative of American pop culture throughout the 20th century. Today, it would be virtually impossible to build a collection of entertainment material this comprehensive from scratch and prohibitively expensive to create at this level of quality—the cost of photo paper alone would run well over $1,000,000. The archive consists of roughly 40% vintage original material, the remainder primarily composed of high quality Movie Star News gelatin silver dark room prints, many made from the original negatives that Klaw acquired directly from the studios. Including actresses and female entertainers: Paula Abdul, Julie Adams, Rene Adoree, Gracie Allen, June Allyson, Judith Anderson, Mary Andrewson, The Andrews Sisters, Ursula Andress, Julie Andrews, Even Arden, Jean Arthur, Mary Astor, Lauren Bacall, Carrol Baker, Josephine Baker, Lucille Ball, Anne Bancroft, Talullah Bankhead, Vilma Banky, Brigette Bardot, Theda Bara, Lynne Bari, Ethel Barrymore, Anne Baxter, Constance Bennett, Joan Bennett, Ingrid Bergman, Linda Blair, Joan Blondell, Ann Blythe, Jacqueline Bisset, Clara Bow, Alice Brady, Mary Brian, Fannie Brice, Louise Brooks, Virginia Bruce, Carol Burnett, Mary Carlisle, Madeleine Carroll, Irene Castle, Joan Caulfield, Helen Chandler, Carol Channing, Marguerite Chapman, Cyd Cherise, Claudette Colbert, Jeanne Crane, Joan Crawford, Fifi D’Orsay, Arlene Dahl, Lili Damita, Dorothy Dandridge, Bebe Daniels, Linda Darnell, Marion Davies, Bette Davis, Doris Day, Yvonne DeCarlo, Francis Dee, Sandra Dee, Gloria DeHaven, Olivia DeHavilland, Dolores Del Rio, Myrna Dell, Catherine Deneuve, Sandy Dennis, Bo Derek, Marlene Dietrch, Faith Domergue, Carol Donell, Billie Dove, Betsy Drake, Faye Dunaway, Irene Dunne, Deanna Durbin, Ann Dvorak, Jeanne Eagles, Barbara Eden, Anita Ekberg, Dale Evans, Francis Farmer, Alice Faye, Rhonda Fleming, Bridget Fonda, Jane Fonda, Joan Fontaine, Anne Francis, Kay Francis, Mona Freeman, Anette Funicello, Eva Gabor, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Greta Garbo, Ava Gardner, Judy Garland, Terri Garr, Greer Garson, Janet Gaynor, Lillian Gish, Paulette Goddard, Betty Grable, Gloria Grahame, Katharyn Grayson, Jane Greer, Virginia Grey Corinne Griffith, Melanie Griffith, Daryl Hannah, Ann Harding, Jean Harlow, June Havoc, Goldie Hawn, Helen Hayes, Susan Hayward, Rita Hayworth, Audrey Hepburn, Katharine Hepburn, Billie Holliday, Miriam Hopkins, Lena Horne, Ruth Hussey, Angelica Huston, Betty Hutton, Janet Jackson, Gloria Jean, Zita Johann, Olivia Newton John, Grace Jones, Jennifer Jones, Shirley Jones, Janis Joplin, Ruby Keeler, Grace Kelly, Deborah Kerr, Phyllis Kirk, Eartha Kitt, Laura La Plante, Veronica Lake, Hedy Lamarr, Dorothy Lamour, Elsa Lancaster, Carol Landis, Priscilla Lane, Francis Langford, Angela Lansbury, Piper Laurie, Lila Lee, Peggy Lee, Janet Leigh, Vivien Leigh, Joan Leslie, Gina Lollabrigida, Carole Lombard, Bessie Love, Myrna Loy, Ida Lupino, Jeanette MacDonald, Ali MacGraw, Shirley MacLane, Anna Magnani, Jayne Mansfield, Ann Margret, Marilyn Maxwell, Virginia Mayo, Dorothy McGuire, Fay McKenzie, Una Merkel, Ethel Merman, Vera Miles, Ann Miller, Liza Minnelli, Mary Miles Minter, Carmen Miranda, Marilyn Monroe, Maria Montez, Coleen Moore, Mae Murray, Pola Negri, Kim Novak, Maureen O’Hara, Maureen O’Sullivan, Merle Oberon, Anita Page, Gail Patrick, Mary Pickford, Eleanor Powell, Luise Rainer, Sally Rand, Vanessa Redgrave, Donna Reed, Lee Remick, Debbie Reynolds, Ann Richards, Ginger Rogers, Diana Ross, Lillian Roth, Gail Russell, Jane Russell, Rosalind Russell, Ann Rutherford, Winona Ryder, Lizabeth Scott, Norma Shearer, Ann Sheridan, Dinah Shore, Sylvia Sidney, Jean Simmons, Alexis Smith, Barbara Stanwyck, Meryl Streep, Barbra Streisand, Gloria Swanson, Elizabeth Taylor, Shirley Temple, Emma Thompson, Gene Tierney, Thelma Todd, Claire Trevor, Kathleen Turner, Lana Turner, Twiggy, Mamie Van Doren, Lupe Velez, Martha Vickers, Rachel Ward, Tuesday Weld, Mae West, Marie Windsor, Debra Winger, Shelley Winters, Jane Withers, Anna May Wong, Natalie Wood, Fay Wray, Teresa Wright, Jane Wyman, Loretta Young, and many, many more.

Documents papiers


lot 869: Marilyn Monroe’s (Norma Jeane Dougherty) first signed studio contract with Twentieth Century-Fox with original screen test request signed by Ben Lyon.
The contract is 17 pages (8.5 x 11 in.), entitled “Agreement Between Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation And Norma Jeane Dougherty – Artist August 24, 1946” typed on the heavy stock contract folder bound with two brass brads. The document is an agreement, “That the producer employs the artist, and the artist enters the employ of the producer, to render his services exclusively to the producer, in the capacities and for the purposes herein described, for a term of Six (6) Months, commencing on the 26th day of August, 1946… the producer shall pay to the artist, as his entire compensation hereunder, the sum of One Hundred and Twenty-Five Dollars ($125.00) per week during the term of said employment…” On page 16, the future Marilyn Monroe signed in black ink, “Norma Jeane Dougherty” and was co-signed by a studio executive an a notary public. The final page was signed by Norma Jeane’s foster mother, Grace McKee, granting approval of the agreement for the 20-year-old minor. Accompanying the contract is the 1-page inter-office document, dated July 25, 1946, signed by Twentieth Century Fox executive (and former actor) Ben Lyon, written to Mr. George Wasson, stating in part: “Will you please draw up an optional contract on Norma Jeane Dougherty. We agree to make a test of her and then within ten (10) days after she completes the test, we agree to advise her whether or not we intend to exercise the option: 6 months – 20 out of 26 weeks -- $150.00.” Ben Lyon was a successful actor starring in the 1930 film Hell’s Angels, the film that brought Jean Harlow to prominence. After having met the young Norma Jeane on July 17, 1946, Lyon stated that she was “Jean Harlow all over again!” With this document, he arranged for Norma Jeane’s screen test and her subsequent contract with the studio. Lyon later advised the starlet to change her screen name to “Marilyn Monroe”. Also included is a carbon copy studio memo to Ben Lyon from George Wasson, dated October 25, 1946, stating that “Today is the last day for us to notify Norma Jeane Dougherty in the event we desire her to have any dental work done.” Contract is in fine condition; both the Lyon and dental memos have paper loss from the two-hole binder. An historic assemblage marking the genesis of the silver screen’s greatest star.

lot 870: Marilyn Monroe personally hand annotated script from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. (TCF, 1953)
Marilyn Monroe’s personally-used and annotated script from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. An incomplete script, being a block of revisions delivered by the production to Marilyn Monroe comprising 69 pages total (numbered 48 through 117, missing page 93) plus a pink title cover-sheet printed “26 November 1952, ‘Gentlemen Prefer Blondes’ (Revised Final Script…13 Nov. 1952),” plus “TO ALL SECRETARIES: Please place these ADDITIONAL PAGES at the back of your script of the above date. THIS IS IMPORTANT! Majority of the prompts for Marilyn’s character “Lorelei Lee” are circled variously in graphite and non-repro blue pencil, with approximately 22-pages annotated in various inks and pencil in Monroe’s hand with amendments and additions to the script and notes on how she proposes to deliver lines and portray Lorelei’s character, with several other pages showing line deletions and other demarcations. Highlights of notes include: pg. 56, when Lord Beekman finds Lorelei stuck in Malone’s porthole, next to Lorelei’s line “Oh yes--Tea with Lady Beekman. Why, she must of forgot. She didn’t show up,” with Monroe adding an alternative line, “Well, I just wanted to see the view. It’s better from here”; pg. 58, Monroe changes the line “Piggie, will you run down to my cabin and get my purse?” to “Maybe I should have that Sherry - will you get me some”; pg. 79, Monroe has written a note to herself in the margin “Feeling that feeds the words, know the lines, go over it inteligently [sic]”; pg. 92, also to herself, “sense the feeling with the body” plus several dialogue changes; pg. 94, again to herself, “grit my teeth and forget it must have my,” “all of feeling in my words,” and “build pull back, don’t stop mutual conflict between partners.” Also, the following page (95) although bearing no notations, features the scene for Monroe’s classic musical number “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend.” In generally very good condition, with expected handling wear, soiling, and creasing, and some small edge tears and damp-staining to cover page and a few internal margins throughout. Marilyn’s unique, revealing personal notations in this script reveal her private thought processes and fleeting self confidence. On set, she was haunted by her controlling acting coach Natasha Lytess, constantly striving for her approval and insisting on retakes even when director Howard Hawks had already approved. Co-star Jane Russell looked after Marilyn on set and was often one of the only people able to coax her out of her trailer during her bouts of self doubt. Despite her anxieties, it was the role of Lorelei Lee that first fabricated her ‘dumb blonde’ persona—a genius mixture of comedy and sexiness which Marilyn personified on screen, all the while taking her acting very seriously, as evidenced by her occasional heartfelt self-motivational notes in the margins. Monroe biographer Donald Spoto once said: “She put a twist on sexiness. It was not something wicked and shameful...it was something which was terribly funny. And Marilyn enjoyed it.” A remarkable and deeply personal artifact both from Marilyn’s aura imbued within it, and of Hollywood history in general.
