Lot 15: MARILYN MONROE ROBE
 A cream cotton mandarin style robe owned by Marilyn Monroe and gifted to her personal assistant Vanessa Reis, sisterin-law of May Reis. The robe has seven self-frog closures, an internal label reading “Tuji” and the collar stamped "REIS." Accompanied by a copy of a letter to Reis dated August 14, 1993, in which Ralph Roberts writes, "Reference Marilyn robe and bracelet. As best I recall, late one Saturday afternoon Marilyn and I were in the dining area of the Miller 9th floor suite at the Mapes Hotel. She had just changed into a robe, sitting on one of the chairs and I was massaging her back and shoulders. She showed me a bracelet she'd brought to Reno with thought of possibly wearing it as a (undecipherable) comment for Roslyn. Upon discussing it, she and Paula had decided somehow it wouldn't be appropriate. Just then May Reis entered with Vanessa Reis (the widow of Irving Reis, May's greatly loved brother and film director). Vanessa had come up from LA for a long weekend visit - there'd been some talk of our going out to some of the casinos to do a bit of gambling. Vanessa told Marilyn how lovely she looked in that robe. Marilyn thanked her + impulsively held out the bracelet, Take this + wear it as a good luck charm. I was wearing it during dance rehearsals for Let's Make Love, smashed into a prop, so a stone is loosened. I wish I could go with you, but Raffe is getting some Misfits knots out. And I should go over that scene coming up Monday.' They left. Marilyn asked me to remind her to have the robe cleaned to give to Vanessa. Whitey, Agnes, May - all of us - knew from experience we couldn't compliment Marilyn on any personal items or had to be very careful. She'd be compulsive about giving it, or getting a copy - to you."

Lot 84: HISTORIC DRESS WORN BY MARILYN MONROE WHEN SHE SANG HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO JFK AT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN IN 1962
 A Jean Louis designed illusion gown worn by Marilyn Monroe at Madison Square Garden in New York City on May 19, 1962, at a Democratic fundraiser and 45th birthday celebration for President John F. Kennedy.
Early in 1962, Monroe asked famed Hollywood costume designer Jean Louis to create a dress “that only Marilyn Monroe could wear.” The nude soufflé chiffon gown, perfectly matching Monroe’s skin tone, was embellished with hand-sewn round crystals, carefully placed since the dress was created with no underlining layer. Monroe wore no undergarments that night, instead relying on Louis’ masterful swirls of crystals in precisely the right places. Under the stage lights of Madison Square Garden, the fabric of the dress appeared to melt away, leaving only twinkling rays of light from the crystals reflected by the spotlight covering Monroe. The gown was designed as a sleeveless column dress with a scoop neck and open back with clear zipper, covered by hook and eye tab closure and a small train at the back hem. Despite the zipper and closures, the gown was so form fitting that Louis later disclosed that Monroe had to be sewn into the back closure. His hand stitching is still evident beneath the lower back hook and eye tabs. Since 1999, the dress has been displayed on a custom conservator mannequin.
In this dress, Monroe sang her unique version of “Happy Birthday” to President Kennedy and a crowd of 15,000 well-wishers. Some have posited that Monroe’s delayed appearance on stage and her breathless performance can be attributed to getting lost and racing to the stage as Peter Lawford joked about Monroe’s penchant for never being on time.
The effect of her performance was far reaching – not only for Monroe but also for American 1960s culture. Monroe’s seductive serenade remains a crossroads of Hollywood and political touch points more than 54 years later. Part of the appeal may be the intrigue: Were Monroe and Kennedy having an affair? Did she just stand up in front of 15,000 people and sing him that song that way ? The performance has taken on a life of its own, outside the context of the gala. While Monroe’s performance is instantly recognizable and the most memorable of the night, it was one of many that night that included Jack Benny, Ella Fitzgerald, Henry Fonda and Maria Callas. However, it is Monroe singing in this dress that is remembered. It has come to epitomize who Marilyn was in popular culture, including the lyrics she wrote herself for the evening:
Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday Mr. President
Happy Birthday to you
Thanks Mr. President
For all the things you've done
The battles that you've won
The way you deal with U.S. Steel
And our problems by the ton
We thank you so much
Everybody! Happy Birthday!
As an enormous birthday cake was wheeled onstage, President Kennedy commented on Monroe’s performance, joking, “I can now retire from politics after having had ‘Happy Birthday’ sung to me in such a sweet, wholesome way.”
On that special evening, Monroe could not have known that she would live fewer than three months. Perhaps she thought another future performance would replace this as the moment that would epitomize her and her life. Sadly, John F. Kennedy was assassinated eighteen months later, and if tragedy had not intervened, this may not have been the singular iconic moment we associate with Monroe and Kennedy.
Although Monroe could not have known that this performance would be the last image of her remembered by so many following her untimely death, she expended a great deal of effort and money to bring this moment to life. Monroe’s financial statements from this period reveal a great deal about the extraordinary amount of money she put behind her performance. Her May 1962 financial statements list a special expense category titled “New York Birthday Salute to the President” with a $5,000 expense, Monroe’s ticket/donation made to attend the event. Expenses also include $1,000 listed as pertaining to the birthday gala for her maid, Hazel Washington, to accompany Monroe to New York. The expense is coded as “business maid, plane fare, salary.” Her last checkbook also records a check paid to Mary Irvine for makeup for “special appearance at Madison Square Garden.” Monroe’s financial statements also list a $300 deposit paid to Western Costume Company to create this gown with matching shoes in May and a payment for the remaining balance of $1,140.33 in June 1962. There were no doubt other expenses involved in Monroe’s appearance, but the ticket to the event, dress, and the expenses listed above total more than $7,000 in 1962, which with inflation would equate to $60,000 in 2016.
These costs do not begin to take into account the cost Monroe paid professionally for her appearance. At the time she was filming Something’s Got To Give, and Twentieth Century Fox executives would not give Monroe permission to leave filming to attend the event. According to some sources, the employees on the crew were aware, in advance, that Monroe was traveling from Los Angeles to perform at the celebration. Whatever miscommunication or machinations there were behind the absence, it became another strike against the actress on an already contentious film set. Monroe’s unauthorized departure was used against her as she was ultimately fired from the film.
The performance that night in May also had an impact on Monroe’s personal life. Monroe biographer Lois Banner, in her book Marilyn: The Passion and the Paradox (New York: Bloomsbury, 2012), asserts that Monroe told the event planners that she would dress discreetly. When viewed under normal lighting, the dress did appear modest, but under the glare of the Madison Square Garden stage lights, the Jean Louis creation magically transformed into a sparkling second skin. The dress and the song were too much for the political dynasty, and according to Banner, that evening ended whatever relationship Monroe and John F. Kennedy shared and severed her from the rest of the Kennedy family. The magic and myth of Marilyn Monroe as legend was certainly sealed that evening in May 1962, made permanent by her mysterious death a short time later. The fact that she remains a contemporary role model and muse all these decades later is extraordinary and a feat achieved by few. Ten years after her death, Elton John and Bernie Taupin penned “Candle in the Wind” about Monroe, repurposing the lyrics twenty-four years later for the funeral of Princess Diana. From Andy Warhol to Cindy Sherman to Richard Avedon and Bert Stern, the art and photography world has always taken Marilyn Monroe seriously. In fact, it was Monroe’s death in 1962 that inspired Warhol to create the “Marilyn Diptych” among more than 20 silkscreen paintings of her, all based on the publicity photograph from her 1953 film Niagara, plucking her from pop culture, forever immortalized as art.

Lot 218: MARILYN MONROE MINK COAT
 A three-quarter-length mink coat with bell sleeves, wide lapel, two front velvet lined pockets and rose form buttons edged in citrine rhinestones. Label has been cut from front right lining.
It was and still is customary for furriers to embroider an owner’s name onto a label that is attached to the lining or directly onto the lining of high-end fur jackets. Due to the fact that Inez Melson and her family held this and other furs that belonged to Monroe and her estate for many years in violation of Monroe’s wishes as outlined by her will, we believe that the label, which likely featured Monroe’s embroidered name, was removed from the jacket in an effort to conceal the fact that it was a fur owned by Monroe. The labels cut from these furs have never been recovered.

Lot 32: MARILYN MONROE RHINESTONE BRACELET

The bracelet has eight rectangular jeweled panels, each centered with a rounded faceted glass and linked with square rhinestone. The clasp is embossed with Bogoff. In a letter to the consigner dated November 28, 1994, Ralph Roberts, Monroe’s masseur, writes, “Reference Marilyn robe and bracelet. As best I recall, late one Saturday afternoon Marilyn and I were in the dining area of the Miller 9th floor suite at the Mapes Hotel. She had just changed into a robe, sitting on one of the chairs and I was massaging her back and shoulders. She showed me a bracelet she’d brought to Reno with thought of possibly wearing it as a [undecipherable comment] for Roslyn [Monroe’s character in The Misfits]. Upon discussing it, she and Paula [Paula Strasberg was Monroe’s acting coach and friend] had decided somehow it wouldn’t be appropriate. Just then May Reis entered with Vanessa Reis (the widow of Irving Reis, May’s greatly loved brother and film director). Vanessa had come up from LA for a long weekend visit – there’d been some talk of our going out to some of the casinos to do a bit of gambling. Vanessa told Marilyn how lovely she looked in that robe. Marilyn thanked her + impulsively held out the bracelet, ‘Take this + wear it as a good luck charm. I was wearing it during dance rehearsals for Let’s Make Love, smashed into a prop, so a stone is loosened. I wish I could go with you, but Raffe is getting some Misfits knots out. And I should go over that scene coming up Monday.’ They left. Marilyn asked me to remind her to have the robe cleaned to give to Vanessa. Whitey, Agnes, May – all of us – knew from experience we couldn’t compliment Marilyn on any personal items or had to be very careful. She’d be compulsive about giving it, or getting a copy – to you.” Accompanied by a copy of the letter.

Lot 1032: MARILYN MONROE SOMETHING'S GOT TO GIVE DRESS 
A Marilyn Monroe worn dress from her final film, Something's Got to Give (20th Century Fox, 1962). The figure-hugging silk crepe dress is printed with scattered painterly roses in shades of persimmon and deep cherry with a plunging V back. The interior of the studio constructed dress has hand finished details, is lined with ivory souffle, and has boning to the waistline. Jean Louis was the costume designer on the film. Monroe wore this dress when her character, who was proclaimed dead and returns from being stranded on an island for five years, is introduced in the film and reunited with her children, who do not realize she is their mother. Monroe was fired from the film, and while the studio tried to replace her with Lee Remick, the film's leading man, Dean Martin, refused to finish the film without Monroe. Monroe's untimely death came less than a month after she was let go from the production.
In 1989, raw footage of the uncompleted movie was discovered in 20th Century Fox’s film vault by the producers of Fox Entertainment News, who edited 37 minutes of the film, featured in the FEN documentary Marilyn: Something’s Got to Give (Fox Network, 1990). The edited footage was later re-purposed in AMC’s 2001 documentary Marilyn Monroe: The Final Days (Prometheus Entertainment), which aired on what would have been Monroe’s 75th birthday.

The scene has extra significance in light of the fact that Monroe and Montand were having a highly publicized affair during production. The lounge also appears in the film A Royal Scandal (20th Century Fox, 1945) in the scene where Catherine the Great, played by Tallulah Bankhead, seductively questions Lieutenant Alexei Chernoff, played by William Eythe. Contains 20th Century Fox studio marks to the underside in black ink. Accompanied by an original copy of the 20th Century Fox Memorabilia Auction catalog, a copy of the film Let's Make Love, and the illustrated Monroe biography Marilyn: Her Life & Legend (Beekman House, 1990).

Lot 161: Travilla “subway dress” costume design for The Seven Year Itch. (TCF, 1955)
In this landmark film from the mid-1950s, Tom Ewell reprises his Broadway role as a husband whose wife goes on a brief vacation with their children. He remains behind in New York on business, alone for the first time in seven years of marriage, and begins fantasizing about a model who has sublet the apartment above. Marilyn Monroe plays The Girl with her characteristic mix of innocence and sexual allure. The Seven Year Itch storyline, unlike some of Monroe’s earlier films, held forth no promise as a costume showcase. It was not a period piece and she had no dance routines. Still, this was to become the vehicle for Travilla’s most famous dress design. It was a deceptively simple dress, classic but sexy, and it was meant to make Monroe look cool on the hot, sticky sidewalks of New York. “I’m going to have my precious baby standing over a grate,” Travilla remembered. “I wanted her to look fresh
and clean. So I wondered what could I do with this most beautiful girl that Marilyn was to play to make her look clean, talcum-powdered and adorable,” Travilla mused. “What would I give her to wear that would blow in the breeze and be fun and pretty? I knew there would be a wind blowing so that would require a skirt.” In his trademark painterly style, Travilla then drew his visualization of what would become the most famous garment in Hollywood history – a white crepe bias-cut dress with a halter-top and sunburst pleated skirt. Accomplished in gouache and ink on a 15 in. x 20 in. sheet of artist’s illustration board, the sketch features the now-famous skirt billowing around her waist, in the scene that would electrify audiences all over the world and reportedly bring an abrupt end to Marilyn’s celebrated marriage to slugger Joe Dimaggio.
Giving the actress a broad smile, Travilla positioned her left arm delicately across her body, while her hand holds up the skirt in a playful tease. The sketch is signed boldly at the lower right of the image in black ink, “Travilla”, with notation at the upper right corner in dark graphite, “7 Year Itch – Wind Scene at Subway”. When she stood over the subway grate and a blast of air caused her pleated skirt to swirl above her waist, Monroe made Hollywood history. Travilla’s contribution was almost forgotten, although he often mused in private about the fame of The Dress. “Here’s how famous it was,” he said. “We were traveling in London to promote the Littlewoods catalog in the 1970s, and my copy of the dress was on display along with millions of dollars in jewelry.” There was a break-in at the show, but the only item stolen was The Dress (which was later anonymously returned). This sketch perfectly embodies the many competing themes of American life during the conservative 1950s, all of which seemed to converge in this film and in this dress at the very moment Marilyn paused over the Subway grate: the responsibilities of modern life as represented by Tom Ewell’s character, the growing independence of American women, and the changing attitude of the country towards
sex and desire, which would culminate in the sexual revolution of the 1960s just a few years away. The crown jewel of Travilla’s Lost Collection, this sketch is not only a wonderful piece of Hollywood history, but an important snapshot of American popular culture from the apex of Marilyn Monroe’s meteoric film career.

Lot 764: Jane Russell extremely limited #1 of an intended run of up to 4 hand and footprint impressions from the Chinese Theatre.
The glitter and glamour of Hollywood continue to attract visitors from all over the world, and there is no monument to Hollywood that is more glamorous or iconic than TCL Chinese Theatre. The forecourt of the theatre remains a must-see spot for tourists and the star-struck to see how they fill the shoes of their favorite stars by placing their own feet in the celebrity footprints that mosaic the courtyard. This is a replica of the hand and footprint square of Jane Russell created from the original concrete impression at the Chinese Theatre when she placed her hand and footprints in the cement along with Marilyn Monroe for the west coast premiere of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.  Rumor has it that Both Jane and Marilyn wanted to make more than just hand and foot print impressions in the forecourt and that they actually wanted to imprint the physical attributes that they were both known for. Theatre management turned down this request though as it would have been considered too risqué. Measuring 37.25 x 41 in. Inscribed, “Jane Russell 6 26 53” and then “Gentleman” as the beginning of the Gentlemen Prefer Blondes title which begins on her square and ends on Monroe’s. The impression is made out of a synthetic casting compound to produce the real look and feel of concrete and does include natural materials that are found in cement.  However, this is sensitive to heat and like all valuable art, it should not be kept in high heat or be displayed in the exterior direct heat/sunlight. This piece is the first of an extremely limited intended run of up to four impressions. No rights to the Jane Russell name, signature or imprint are transferred to the buyer with this sale. Special shipping arrangements will apply.

Lot 765: Marilyn Monroe extremely limited #1 of an intended run of up to 4 hand and footprint impressions from the Chinese Theatre.
The glitter and glamour of Hollywood continue to attract visitors from all over the world, and there is no monument to Hollywood that is more glamorous or iconic than TCL Chinese Theatre. The forecourt of the theatre remains a must-see spot for tourists and the star-struck to see how they fill the shoes of their favorite stars by placing their own feet in the celebrity footprints that mosaic the courtyard. This is a replica of the hand and footprint square of Marilyn Monroe created from the original concrete impression at the Chinese Theatre which is, by far, the most photographed imprint square in the TCL Chinese Theatre forecourt, honored with the opening of her film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. She originally wanted them to dot the “I” in her name with a diamond, but theatre management suggested that someone would steal the diamond and suggested an earring be placed instead. A short time later someone over night came along and attempted to steal the earring. The top broke off, but the back remains firmly implanted in the cement to this day. 42.5 x 42.25 in. Inscribed, “Marilyn Monroe” and then “Prefer Blondes” as half of the Gentlemen Prefer Blondes title started on Jane Russell’s square and finished on Monroe’s. Marilyn’s “I” is dotted by a faux diamond imbedded in the square. The impression is made out of a synthetic casting compound to produce the real look and feel of concrete and does include natural materials that are found in cement.  However, this is sensitive to heat and like all valuable art, it should not be kept in high heat or be displayed in the exterior direct heat/sunlight.

mm_gpb_red_dress_expo_jerseyL'une des robes est aujourd'hui la propriété du collectionneur David Gainsborogh-Roberts, à l'initiative d'une exposition de ses pièces de collections (majoritairement des costumes de films portés par Marilyn Monroe), qui a eu lieu en 2009 sur l'île de Jersey (photo ci-contre).

L'autre robe, qui semble être celle portée par Marilyn dans le film, était jusqu'en juin 2011, la propriété de l'actrice Debbie Reynolds, qui a mis aux enchères l'ensemble de son impressionnante collection. L'actrice l'avait acquise en 1971, en l'achetant directement aux studios de la Twentieth Century Fox. La robe fut vendue avec le chapeau de plumes porté par Marilyn dans la séquence du numéro musical Two Little Girls from Little rock dans Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Il s'agirait en effet de la robe portée par Marilyn, car l'étiquette de la robe comporte l'inscription suivante, écrite à la main: "1-25-1-4286 A698-67 Marilyn Monroe", quand au chapeau, il comporte l'étiquette "1-25 1-4286 A698-67 M. Monroe". L'ensemble robe et chapeau furent vendus aux enchères de juin 2011 pour la somme impressionnante de 1 200 000 Dollars.

mm_gpb_red_dress_shoes_1Quand à la paire de chaussures assortie à la robe et portée par Marilyn pour les photos promotionnelles (et non portées dans la séquence du numéro musical dans le film), on en découvre une dans le livret du single collector américain Music de Madonna, sorti en 2000. Pour l'album Music, Madonna adopta le style cow-boy, portant chemise à carreaux, jean et chapeau de cow-boy. Pour les photos promotionnelles, on découvre la chanteuse posant notamment dans la paille; et il y figure cette photographie d'une chaussure à strass rouge perlée, disposée dans la paille, qui est bel et bien l'une de la paire portée par Marilyn.

Lot n°148: costume de Gentlemen Prefer Blondes
A "must have" for any serious collector of Marilyn Monroe memorabilia, offered here is a peach satin leotard with fishnet overlay and a pair of peach satin gloves with rhinestones, worn by none other than the legendary Marilyn Monroe herself as Lorelei Lee in the 1953 classic Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Created by famed costume designer Travilla, outfits such as this leotard created a great controversy at the time of the film's release since it was considered too revealing for major stars as Monroe to wear. Ultimately, it was Monroe's ability and willingness to wear such outfits that made her perhaps the greatest sex symbol in the history of motion pictures! An official 20th Century Fox sewn-in wardrobe label on the inside lining of the leotard reads, "20th Century Fox, Marilyn Monroe." NOTE: The leotard and gloves were worn in the film, however, they are not a matching set and are seen separately. Originally acquired from Sotheby's and accompanied by an original Sotheby's sticker. In overall fine condition, with some rhinestones on the leotard and gloves missing. These costume pieces are accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by Debbie Reynolds and Darren Julien of Julien Entertainment.
