Description: Ella Fitzgerald and Marilyn Monroe were mutual supporters according to this historical picture book.Ella and Marilyn were different on the outside, but both were "full of hopes and dreams" while their circumstances were humble. After they got their big breaks, Ella in jazz singing and Marilyn in acting, each struggled to reach her full potential. In the United States, Ella faced barriers due to racism and places that only hired "glamorous" stars. Marilyn got plenty of roles, but as a woman in an industry run by men, she lacked control over her career. When she got a script with a big singing role, she listened to her favorite singer, Ella, to practice for it. The movie was a hit, and Marilyn was finally able to get her voice heard as a professional. She went to thank Ella in person at one of Ella's shows, and the two talked into the night. When Marilyn learned of the barriers Ella faced, she used her star status to negotiate a performance for Ella at a popular nightclub. While Marilyn is shown attaining fame first, this warm story emphasizes Ella's role in her success, thus avoiding the trap of the white-savior narrative. Many white artists have benefited from imitating black ones; this is the rare narrative to acknowledge that. Harris' illustrations are stiff but engaging; saturated with color, they capture the iconic looks of the two stars. A good volume to include in a larger conversation about friendship, allyship, and social justice.(author's note, sources) (Picture book/biography. 5-10), Kirkus Reviews

 African American singer Ella Fitzgerald and blonde movie star Marilyn Monroe shared their need to be heard and helped each other along the way. Kirkfield describes the obstacles these women faced: Fitzgerald battled racism, and Monroe was underestimated due to her gender. Monroe taught herself to become a better singer by listening to recordings of Fitzgerald's songs and achieved star status for her role in the 1953 film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. In turn, she convinced the owner of a formerly whites-only Hollywood night club to hire Fitzgerald, paving the way for the jazz singer's more universal recognition. The relatively simple text is supported by an author's note and extensive sources, both primary (videos and interviews) and secondary (books and online resources). Kirkfield makes clear that both women brought deep personal feelings to their performances. Harris's digital illustrations are varied, from vignettes to full and double-page spreads. One striking spread echoed on the title page and cover shows the pair still engaged in conversation in an otherwise empty and darkened nightclub.

Description: She was the rising star of the jazz world, with a voice that could knock down any doors, save for those still locked behind the remains of Jim Crow laws. But help can come from the most unlikely places, including one of Ella Fitzgerald's greatest fans, film legend Marilyn Monroe, who talked many theater owners to give the singer a chance. Thanks to the talent of Ella Fitzgerald, and with the help of Marilyn Monroe, we all can now witness their talents, as well as the power of friendship and what it can accomplish.

TV - 20h30 le Samedi


Samedi 14 décembre 2019 - à 20h30 - France 2

Reportage:  20h30 Le Samedi
Le coup de pouce de Marilyn à Ella

Marilyn Monroe adorait la chanteuse de jazz Ella Fitzgerald à qui un grand club d’Hollywood refusait d’ouvrir ses portes, dans un pays où la ségrégation raciale ne désarmait pas. Alors, elle a passé un deal avec son boss… Extrait du magazine "20h30 le samedi" diffusé le 14 décembre 2019, juste après le journal de France 2.

"La personne que je préfère, humainement et en tant que chanteuse, c’est Ella Fitzgerald", affirmait Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962) qui, les jours de blues, se mettait au lit avec une bouteille de champagne en écoutant les disques de l’artiste de jazz américaine (1917-1996). En pleine période de ségrégation raciale, l’actrice au sommet de sa gloire apprend que sa chanteuse préférée ne peut pas chanter au Mocambo, un célèbre club d’Hollywood où se pressent toutes les célébrités.

 "Marilyn s’est dit : 'Je peux peut-être faire quelque chose. Elle a été si importante dans ma vie. Et si je l’aidais à jouer au Mocambo ?’" rappelle Bonnie Greer, auteure de la pièce "Marilyn et Ella" au magazine 20h30 le samedi" (replay). Alors, Norma Jeane Mortenson, plus militante des droits civiques que sex-symbol, appelle le patron de ce lieu mythique dont les portes restent obstinément fermées à la future "First Lady of Swing"

"Si vous prenez Ella, je m’engage à venir avec des amis pendant une semaine, tous les soirs, à une table dans l’établissement", explique Michel Macaire de l’association Les Amis d’Ella Fitzgerald et historien de sa carrière. Bonnie Greer ajoute : "C’est comme si Angelina Jolie appelait une salle de spectacle et disait : 'Faites-la chanter et je  serai là tous les soirs. Vous pouvez prévenir la presse et leur dire que je serai là. Il y aura une queue gigantesque pour la voir.'"

"Quand ils voient arriver Ella Fitzgerald qui est noire, a de l’embonpoint, qui ne fait pas la mignonne et qui balance sa vie… il y en a certains qui ne comprennent pas du tout ce qui se passe", raconte la chanteuse de jazz Anne Ducros. Et ça fonctionne… Marilyn savait que cet amour-là marcherait, parce que la voix d’Ella est incroyable. C’est universel ce qu’elle donne." Alors, Marilyn a-t-elle respecté sa promesse ? "On n’est vraiment pas sûr du tout qu’elle ait été présente", note Michel Macaire. Peut-être, mais elle a quand même réussi son coup…

45 things you didn't know about Marilyn Monroe


 45 things you didn't know about Marilyn Monroe
published on June, 1st, 2016
by Horatia Harrod - online Telegraph

Norma Jeane Mortenson - better known as Marilyn Monroe 

1. Marilyn was relatively poorly paid. Jane Russell was paid around 10 times as much as Marilyn when they co-starred in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Her salary for her final unfinished film, Something’s Got to Give, was $100,000. Compare that with Elizabeth Taylor, who was getting a million dollars for Cleopatra; or even Marilyn’s co-star in the film, Dean Martin, who was on $500,000. Today, her estate makes around five million dollars a year.

2. But she died having become a million-dollar movie star. In 1962 she was fired by Twentieth-Century Fox from the production of Something’s Got to Give because of her chronic lateness and no-shows (she didn’t appear for the first two weeks of filming). But on August 1, four days before her death, she was rehired by Fox on a $1million, two-picture deal.

3. She found it almost impossible to learn lines, and took 60 takes to deliver the line “It’s me, Sugar”, in Some Like it Hot.

4. She was Playboy’s first Sweetheart (later Playmate) of the Month, in 1953. Marilyn had been paid $50 to model for the picture in 1949; Hugh Hefner bought it for $500.

5. Several of the burial vaults near to Marilyn’s have been put on sale. When Elsie Poncher, the widow of the man in the vault above Marilyn’s, put his space up for sale on eBay, she received dozens of bids, including one for £2.8million.

6. Hugh Hefner owns the burial vault next to Marilyn at the Westwood Memorial Park in Los Angeles. He bought it in 1992 for £50,000.

7. She went by many names. On her birth certificate she is Norma Jeane Mortenson; she was baptised Norma Jeane Baker; she modelled under the names Jean Norman and Mona Monroe; her initial idea for a screen name was Jean Adair; she signed into hotels as Zelda Zonk and into a psychiatric clinic as Faye Miller. She only legally changed her name to Marilyn Monroe in March 1956, when she was already a star.

8. She was placed with 11 sets of foster parents after her mother, Gladys, was institutionalised. She also spent almost a year in the Children’s Aid Society Orphanage in Los Angeles.

9. Goya was her favourite artist: “I know this man very well, we have the same dreams, I have had the same dreams since I was a child.”

10. Marilyn became a Christian Scientist at the age of 18; later in her life she dabbled in alternative spiritualities, including Anthroposophy, the philosophy espoused by Rudolf Steiner. She converted to Judaism before her 1956 marriage to Arthur Miller.

11. Her weight went up and down so dramatically during the filming of The Prince and the Showgirl that the costume designer, Beatrice Dawson, had to create facsimile dresses in different sizes. “I have two ulcers from this film,” she said, “and they’re both monogrammed MM.”

12. She was rarely without an acting coach. Her first, Natasha Lytess, worked with her for six years and 22 films, clashing with directors, whose authority she challenged, and studio heads, who paid her bills. (Marilyn also paid her a wage – and settled her £11,000 debt at the dentist.)
Later, Paula Strasberg took Lytess’s role; unlike Lytess, who tried to direct Marilyn’s every movement from behind the camera, Strasberg was consulted between takes. To coach Marilyn in The Prince and the Showgirl, she was paid $25,000 – as much as some of the featured actors were getting.

13. For 20 years after Marilyn’s death, Joe DiMaggio arranged to have roses sent to her crypt three times a week.

14. In January 2011, Authentic Brand Groups bought the licensing rights to the Marilyn Monroe estate, for a price in the range of $30million. “On the media and entertainment side,” said the company’s chief executive, Jamie Salter, “I think she’s got a career in front of her, just based on technology.

15. At the 1999 auction of Marilyn’s effects, her white baby grand piano was bought by Mariah Carey, the singer, for $662,500. (The estimate had been $10,000-$15,000.) The piano had been bought by Marilyn’s mother, and sold after she had her breakdown, but Marilyn eventually found it and bought it back, keeping it with her until her death.

16. There was an open casket at her funeral. She wore an apple green Pucci sheath dress made of nylon jersey and a platinum wig (her head had been partially shaved during the autopsy).

17. She was thought to have been planning to remarry Joe DiMaggio at the time of her death. After the failure of their marriage, DiMaggio had undergone therapy, stopped drinking alcohol and expanded his interests beyond baseball: he and Marilyn read poetry together in these later years.

18. Marilyn’s beaded Jean Louis gown, worn when she sang Happy Birthday to President Kennedy, was sold in 1999 for £820,000. At the time it was the record price for a single item of clothing, until Marilyn’s billowing white Seven Year Itch dress was put up for sale by Debbie Reynolds in 2011, where it made £2.8 million.

19. Marilyn owned many dogs during her life; her last was a Maltese terrier given to her by Frank Sinatra, which she named Maf (short for Mafia Honey). At the Christie’s sale in 1999, two Polaroids of Maf sold for £220,000.

20. Marilyn left 75 per cent of her estate to the Strasbergs; eventually this fell to Anna Strasberg, Lee Strasberg’s third wife. She vetoes the use of all images in which Marilyn wears fur, citing Marilyn’s love of animals as a reason.

21. The Anna Freud Centre, a child therapy clinic in Hampstead, north London, owns the remaining 25 per cent of Marilyn Monroe’s estate. The centre was left its share by Dr Marianne Kris, one of Marilyn’s therapists, and the original beneficiary of her will.

22. Before her marriages to Joe DiMaggio and Arthur Miller, Marilyn was married to James Dougherty. She was 16 when they tied the knot. Dougherty, who later became a detective in the LAPD, was forbidden by his second wife from going to see any of Marilyn’s films.

23. Marilyn whitened her skin with hormone cream, one side effect of which was to encourage the growth of blonde down on her face; Marilyn would not remove this peach fuzz, believing that it gave her face a soft glow on camera.

24. She was never nominated for an Academy Award, but she was voted the “Oomph Girl” at Emerson Junior High in 1941; crowned Castroville’s first Artichoke Queen in 1948; and was Stars and Stripes magazine’s Miss Cheesecake of 1950.

25. She was named “The Most Advertised Girl in the World” by the Advertising Association of the West in 1953. Among the brands she represented were American Airlines, Kyron Way Diet Pills, Pabst Beer, Tan-Tan Suntan Lotion and Royal Triton Oil.

26. In 1950, Johnny Hyde, her agent, paid for her to have two plastic surgeries: a tip rhinoplasty (reshaping the soft cartilage at the end of her nose); and a chin implant.

27. She was an early devotee of yoga, and was taught by Indra Devi, a Swedish-Russian Bollywood film star who also taught Greta Garbo and Gloria Swanson.

28. Marilyn’s intervention got Ella Fitzgerald her first major engagement at a Los Angeles nightclub. In 1955 the colour bar was still in force, but Marilyn convinced the management to let Fitzgerald play by promising to sit in the front row for a week.

29. Marilyn was only the second woman to head her own production company (Mary Pickford was the first).

30. Marilyn had a fixation on Clark Gable, her co-star in The Misfits; as a young girl, Marilyn dreamed that he was her father. When he died, she said that she cried for two days.

31. She preferred to go naked. Among female studio employees – wardrobe mistresses, hairdressers, make-up artists – she often went without clothes. She gave interviews in the nude and often went out wearing nothing under the black mink that Joe DiMaggio had given her.

32. Writers loved her. Jean-Paul Sartre wanted her to play the role of a hysterical patient in the film Freud, for which he wrote the first draft of a screenplay; she was Truman Capote’s first choice for the part of Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

33. Marilyn’s death was ruled a “probable suicide”, but toxicology tests were only carried out on her liver. When the deputy coroner, Thomas Noguchi, tried to obtain her other organs for testing, he was told they’d been destroyed.

34. Veronica Hamel, an actress, bought Marilyn’s house in 1972. She claimed that when she was renovating the house she discovered an extensive system of wire-taps.

35. Marilyn’s hero was Abraham Lincoln: “I used to read everything I could find about him,” she wrote in her (ghosted) autobiography, My Story. “He was the only famous American who seemed most like me, at least in his childhood.

36. The books she was reading at the time of her death were Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird and Captain Newman MD, a novel by Leo Rosten based on the life of Monroe’s psychiatrist, Ralph Greenson.

37. Two men claimed paternity of Marilyn on their deathbeds: C Stanley Gifford, who both Marilyn and her mother believed was her father, but who refused to meet Marilyn when she was alive; and Edward Mortensen, who was married to her mother at the time of her birth, and whose (misspelled) surname appears on her birth certificate.

38. She was athletic. As a young married woman on Catalina Island in the early Forties, she studied weightlifting with a former Olympic champion named Howard Corrington. She later went tandem surfing with a boyfriend, Tommy Zahn, balancing on his shoulders as they cut through the waves.

39. She was a talented producer. Marilyn Monroe Productions, which she formed in 1955 with Milton Greene, the photographer, only solely produced one film, The Prince and the Showgirl. Marilyn showed her nous in winning the script: she managed to wangle a meeting with the writer, Terence Rattigan, in New York, where he was stopping over en route to Hollywood to discuss the script with the director William Wyler, luring him from the airport to a downtown bar. When Wyler failed to make him a concrete offer, Rattigan went with Monroe.

40. Many of her friends believed she was murdered. Among the potential suspects: Robert Kennedy (with whom she had had an affair); John F Kennedy (ditto); mafioso Sam Giancana; the FBI; the CIA; her psychiatrist, Ralph Greenson.

41. During the filming of Let’s Make Love, Marilyn’s no-shows added 28 days to the shooting time and $1 million to the budget.

42. Her career in front of the camera began when she was discovered working on the assembly line at Radioplane, a munitions factory, by a photographer called David Conover.

43. Arthur Miller’s play After the Fall is generally thought to be a thinly veiled portrayal of his marriage to Marilyn. The writer James Baldwin walked out of the play because he thought that “Maggie”, the Monroe character, was written so cruelly.

44. She only owned one home by herself: the house she died in at 12305 Fifth Helena Drive, Brentwood.

45. When she met Nikita Khrushchev, they discussed The Brothers Karamazov. She dreamed of playing the part of Grushenka in a film of the book.

My Heart Belongs to Daddy

Boys !
My name is Lolita

And I... am not supposed to play...with boys!

Moi ? uh uh!
Mon coeur est à Papa
You know, le propriétaire


While tearing off a game of golf
I may make a play for the caddy
But when I do, I don't follow through
'Cause my heart belongs to Daddy

If I invite a boy some night
To dine on my fine food and haddie
I just adore, his asking for more
But, my heart belongs to Daddy

Yes, my heart belongs to Daddy
So I simply couldn't be bad
Yes, my heart belongs to Daddy
Da-da-da, da-da-da, da-da-dad

So I want to warn you, laddie
Though I know that you're perfectly swell
That my heart belongs to Daddy
'Cause my Daddy, he treats it... so...

While tearing off a game of golf
I may make a play for the caddy
But when I do, I don't follow through
Shoo do ga do, shoo do ga do, ooo, Daddy

If I invite a boy some night
To cook up a fine enchilada
Though Spanish rice is all very nice
Ba-da, ba-da, ba-da, ba-da, ba-da, da-da

Yes !

My heart belongs to Daddy
So I simply... couldn't be bad
Yes, my heart belongs to my Daddy

So I want to warn you, laddie

Je peux peut-être m'amuser avec le caddie
Mais quand je le fais, je ne vais pas très loin
Car mon coeur appartient à Papa

Si j'invite un garçon un soir
Pour goûter mon bon haddock fumé
J'adore quand il en demande plus
Mais mon coeur appartient à Papa

Pendant une partie de golf

Mais quand je le fais, je ne vais pas très loin

Si j'invite un garçon un soir
Pour lui cuisiner une bonne enchilada
Même si le riz espagnol est vraiment bon

Oui! Mon coeur appartient à Papa
Alors je ne peux simplement... pas être mauvaise
Oui! Mon coeur appartient à Papa

Alors, je voudrais te prévenir mon gars
Bien que je sache que tu es vraiment super
Mon coeur appartient à Papa
Car Papa, mon papa,
Mon petit papa, il me traite si...

ce petit vieillard me traite juste si bien !

  • mary_martinL'auteur de cette célèbre chanson est Cole Porter qui l'a créée en 1938 pour la comédie musicale Leave it to me ! jouée sur les planches à Broadway. La première interprète est l'actrice et chanteuse de Broadway Mary Martin (photo ci-contre) qui joue le personnage Dolly: sur scène, Dolly est bloquée à une station de chemin de fer sibérien, vêtue seulement d'un manteau de fourrure, et elle effectue un strip-tease tout en chantant la chanson. Entourée d'hommes avides de Sibérie, elle dit que depuis qu'elle a rencontré "papa", elle va flirter avec d'autres hommes, mais elle "n'ira pas très loin." "Papa" est son vieux protecteur journaliste, introduit par les mots: "Je suis venue avec attention, pour un si doux millionnaire."
    Mary Martin chante à nouveau la chanson en 1940, mais dans un film: Love Thy Neighbor, où, pendant sa prestation et vêtue d'un manteau de fourrure elle s'adonne encore à un striptease, mais portant cette fois-ci une robe de soirée sous son manteau. Elle réitère la performance en 1946 dans le film Night and Day, un biopic sur Cole Porter.

> Mary Martin (dans Love Thy Neighbor)

  • En Angleterre, la chanson rencontre beaucoup de succès en 1938 grâce à la chanteuse Pat Kirkwood qui l'interprète dans une revue: "Black Velvet".

  • La version originale contient quatre versets, qui jouent tous sur des rimes idiosyncrasiques avec "papa"; à la fin, la chanteuse finit par dire que son père pourrait la "fesser" si elle était «mauvaise».
    Mais la version chantée par
    Marilyn Monroe en 1960 subit des modifications: l'introduction est changée dans sa totalité, un verset est ajoutée (où elle invite un garçon pour cuisiner des enchiladas).
    Les lignes ne sont pas conformes à la rime du reste de la chanson, mais il s'agit désormais de la version la plus célèbre, reprise notamment par Anna Nicole Smith en 1997.

> Anna Nicole Smith

  • Les divers interprètes de la chanson:  Le groupe Larry Clinton avec la chanteuse Bea Wain (en 1938), The Count Basie Orchestra avec Helen Humes (1939), Valaida Snow (1939), Eartha Kitt (1953), Peggy Lee (1953), Ella Fitzgerald (1954), Kitty Kallen (1954), Anita O'Day (1959), izzy Gillespie (1959), Della Reese (1960), Marilyn Monroe (1960), Oscar Peterson (1962), Julie London (1961 - Whatever Julie Wants ), Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass (1967), Violetta Villas (1970), Jane Birkin (1978), Anna Nicole Smith (1997), Dee Dee Bridgewater (1997), Paul Motian (2003), Sophie Milman (2004), Stacey Kent and Jim Tomlinson (2005).

I'm through with love

Vidéo et Paroles de la chanson
I'm trough with love

interprétée par Marilyn Monroe

dans le film Certains l'aiment chaud en 1959

I'm through with love
I'll never fall again
Said adieu to love
Don't ever call again
For I must have you or no one
And so I'm through with love

I've locked my heart
I'll keep my feelings there
I've stocked my heart
With icy frigid aire
And I mean to care for no one
Because I'm through with love

Why did you lead me
To think you could care ?
You didn't need me
For you had your share
Of slaves around you
To hound you and swear
With deep emotion and devotion to you

Goodbye to spring
And all it meant to me
It can never bring
The thing that used to be
For I must have you or no one
And so I'm thru with love

And so I'm through with
Baby, I'm thru with love


J'en ai fini avec l'amour

J'en ai fini avec l'amour
Je ne m'y ferais plus prendre
J'ai dit adieu à l'amour
Ne rappelle plus jamais
Car j'ai besoin de toi pas de quelqu'un d'autre
C'est pourquoi j'en ai fini avec l'amour.

J'ai fermé mon coeur
Je garderais là mes sentiments
J'ai rempli mon coeur
D'un air glacial et froid
Et je ne veux m'attacher à quelqu'un
Parce que j'en ai fini avec l'amour

Pourquoi m'as-tu amenée
A penser que tu te souciais de moi ?
Tu n'avais pas besoin de moi
car tu avais ta part
d'esclaves autour de toi
pour te plaire et te prêter serment
avec une profonde émotion et dévotion envers toi

Au revoir au printemps
et à tout ce qu'il signifiait pour moi
Il ne pourra jamais ramener
ce qu'il y a eu autrefois
car j'ai besoin de toi pas de quelqu'un d'autre
c'est pourquoi j'en ai fini avec l'amour.
