> article Press Release: Lee Strasberg :
Julien’s Auctions, the world record breaking auction house to the stars, has announced on offer one of the most personal collections of Marilyn Monroe from the estate of Lee Strasberg. The auction will include a wide variety of documents and personal items once owned by Marilyn Monroe and represents the largest collection of Marilyn Monroe artifacts ever offered at auction.
Besides being an actor and director in his own right, Strasberg is considered the father of method acting in America. Strasberg revolutionized the art of acting by having a profound influence on performance in American theater and movies. A myriad of actors and directors from the United States and around the world gave Lee Strasberg credit for his influence on them, including Mike Nichols, Richard Harris, Dustin Hoffman, Jack Nicholson, Al Pacino, Jane Fonda and Robert DeNiro.” Stars of Hollywood’s silver screen era who trained under Strasberg include Montgomery Clift, James Dean, Jean Stapleton and of course, Marilyn Monroe. Marilyn developed a close personal relationship with Lee and his wife Paula, and she ultimately bequeathed all of her personal effects and clothing to Lee in her will.
"No one person ever really knew every facet of Marilyn Monroe, though countless books have attempted to piece together every first, second and third hand account of each encounter, often embellished through passage of time. Marilyn was a complex and beguiling figure in her lifetime, leaving generations of adoring fans to speculate, infer and debate about her life. What has resulted is a prismatic kaleidoscope image built upon both fact and fantasy." – Anna Strasberg
“This is one of the most important and historic auctions of Marilyn Monroe ever. This diverse collection gives us a most intimate glimpse of the screen legend. Never before have there been so many important artifacts from the life and career of the much loved global icon Marilyn Monroe as in our Nov 19th and 20th auction.” – Martin Nolan, Executive Director of Julien’s Auctions.
Perhaps the highlight of the items is one of just a few pieces of fine jewelry ever owned by Monroe: a ladies platinum and diamond cocktail watch with face reading “Blancpain, and the movement is signed Rayvill Watch Co. 17 Jewels, Unadjusted Switzerland.” The sale includes other pieces of costume jewelry, compacts, cosmetics and a few pieces related to Joe DiMaggio. A DiMaggio highlight is an alligator men’s accessory case with custom “JDim” initial in brass on lid with a combination lock closure set to “555” — a repetition of DiMaggio’s Yankee number 5.
The sale will also include a beautiful 1950’s brown alligator ladies handbag from I. Magnin & Co. with matching accessories, a grey pony handbag from Mexico still containing three one peso bills, and a number of other handbags, fur coats and stoles.
Of particular interest is a stunning ladies minaudière with the original box, featuring three compartments including one for loose powder with cotton buffer, mirror, comb, two mercury dimes, eight Phillip Morris cigarettes and a tube of used Revlon lipstick in “Bachelor’s Carnation” with a date of 1947, a virtual time capsule of one of the star’s nights out on the town.
The items in this collection also include documents that represent signposts containing unbiased factual information placing the star in a certain place on a certain day, the only tangible things left behind to mark simple and remarkable moments in her life and career, from a taxi receipt dated February 2, 1960 listing the trip details as simply “From: 904 To: 20th Century” to a check dated July 25, 1952 written in Monroe’s hand to her mother Gladys Eley in the amount of $150.00 endorsed by her mother signed, “Mrs. Gladys P. Eley.” In addition to household, food, fur, books, beauty, and clothing receipts, there are tax documents listing the star’s expenditures in great detail, a collection of recipes given to her by friends, and of certain interest is her 1962 checkbook containing the filled out stubs of every check written from her account in the final year of her life as well as the checks written from her account immediately after her death.
The items provide an unprecedented look at the daily details of her life, offering yet another perspective of Monroe.
In addition to these extraordinary highlights from the screen icon’s life are documents, correspondence, poems and intimate notes featured in the appropriately titled 2012 book Fragments. The book helped to piece together a more even-handed view of the icon, demonstrating her intellectual curiosity, vulnerability and humanity. The poems included in the book offer a deeply personal look into Monroe’s thoughts, such as this excerpt: “Only parts of us will ever touch parts of others — one’s own truth is just that really — one’s own truth…” Many of the writings featured in the book are contained in notebooks that are included in the sale as well as lighter material like her now famous recipe for stuffing scrawled on a sheet of “City Title Insurance Company” notepaper.

Catalogue "Happy Birthday JFK Dress and related Property" issu de la vente aux enchères le 17 novembre 2016 par Julien's Auction à Los Angeles, aux Etats-Unis.
Le catalogue de 52 pages présente les lots (n°70 à n°84) se rapportant à la soirée de gala d'anniversaire du Président John F. Kennedy: le programme, le ticket d'entrée, une bobine d'un film couleur de la soirée, des photographies, des lettres et dépenses, des esquisses de la robe, et le plus attendu des lots, la fameuse robe créée par le couturier Jean-Louis, dont la valeur est estimée entre 2 et 3 millions de dollars.
Une première fois mise en vente par Christie en 1999, la robe couleur chair et brodée à la main de 2500 cristaux a ensuite été vendue à l’homme d’affaires Martin Zweig, aujourd’hui décédé, pour près d’1,3 million de dollars. Ce sont les gestionnaires de son héritage qui la mettent aujourd’hui aux enchères.
> Extrait article Happy Birthday Mr. President :
New York, New York – (September 7, 2016) – On Saturday, May 19, 1962, at a Democratic fundraiser and early 45th birthday celebration, President John F. Kennedy took his seat in Madison Square Garden anticipating what has now become one of the most iconic moments in entertainment and political history. In front of 15,000 guests, many of them celebrities, actor Peter Lawford was about to make an introduction that would change the course of pop culture and Presidential folklore forever. Under a bright spotlight, the legendary Marilyn Monroe walked on stage and peeled away her white ermine fur coat, revealing a skintight, sheer, flesh-colored dress that sparkled with over 2,500 handstitched crystals. The custom Jean Louis creation was so tight fitting that Marilyn wore nothing underneath and had to be sewn into it last minute. Original sketch illustrated by Bob Mackie. When Marilyn appeared and the dress was finally revealed, the entire audience gasped.
After Peter Lawford introduced her as the “LATE” Marilyn Monroe, she flicked the microphone and began to sing “Happy Birthday Mr. President” in her trademark sultry, sexy voice with original lyrics she wrote herself. However, it was her intimate tone and projection of the words “Mr. President” that would stun the audience, excite the press and become a milestone in popular culture. The song and performance were remembered for many reasons, not the least because it was one of her last public appearances before her untimely death less than three months later. Sadly, President Kennedy died a year later and that infamous night at MSG was the last known time they saw each other. The rendition by Marilyn remains one of the most famous, delivered in her halting, breathy tone. All in all, it lasted approximately 30 seconds, but more than five decades later, it remains the most famous version of “Happy Birthday” ever. The dress, the performance, Jacqueline Kennedy’s absence and photographs from the evening would spark ravenous rumors of an affair between the President and Marilyn.
In fact, it was Marilyn’s death in 1962 that prompted American artist Andy Warhol to create “Marilyn’s Diptych” — one of the most famous art homages to her, permanently securing Marilyn’s place in contemporary art history.
“Marilyn Monroe singing ‘Happy Birthday Mr. President’ is certainly one of the most famous impromptu performances in American history,” said Darren Julien, President & CEO of Julien’s Auctions. “That rendition has lived on for decades as one of the most remarkable events in her career and certainly one of the most storied tales in popular culture history — a moment in time squarely at the center of the 1960s, Hollywood and Camelot. We are incredibly privileged to have the opportunity to offer this amazing dress to collectors, fans and contemporary art enthusiasts around the world.”
On November 17, 2016, Julien’s Auctions, the world-record breaking auction house to the stars, will once again make history when it exclusively offers the Marilyn Monroe “Happy Birthday Mr. President” Jean Louis creation at auction. Julien’s Auctions will give collectors and fans from around the globe one of the most awe-inspiring moments in auction history when the gavel comes down on the final bid for this remarkable object.
Prior to the auction, the “Happy Birthday Mr. President” dress will go on an exclusive world tour. The dress will exhibit at MANA Contemporary in New Jersey as part of the Exhibition “Marilyn: Character Not Image” followed by the Newbridge Silverware Museum of Style Icons (MOSI) in Kildare, Ireland before making its way back to the Julien’s Auctions Gallery in Los Angeles.
“We have had remarkable opportunities to offer unique objects related to Marilyn Monroe in the past,” said Martin Nolan, Executive Director of Julien’s Auctions. “To be part of the continued interest and excitement around this legend is always thrilling. This dress, this story, this momentous occasion represents a defining moment in history. This auction will remind the world why Marilyn Monroe remains an icon.”
The dress will be presented on the custom-made mannequin that was designed to match Marilyn Monroe’s exact body measurements.
