From the famous Trader Vic's restaurant in Honolulu where the couple ate dinner during their quick stop while en route to Japan and Korea, signed in blue ballpoint ink on an interior page "The food was wonderful / Marilyn Monroe DiMaggio" and "Lefty O'Doul" [one of DiMaggio's baseball buddies who accompanied them on their trip]; further signed in the same ink on another page of the menu "Joe DiMaggio."

Six total, all original prints with a glossy finish; four taken the same day and two taken other days, all showing MM in an outdoor setting either alone or with Aviv Wardimon (who later changed his last name to 'Blackman'); according to his distant relatives who consigned this lot, he was a security guard at one of the movie studios (most probably 20th Century Fox) who evidently struck up a friendship with the then-starlet as these images seem to indicate; also included is one extra black and white snapshot of Wardimon with actor John Carroll (who is wearing western garb on a movie set) -- coincidentially, Monroe was living with Carroll and his wife at this time. (Please note there is handwriting in blue ink on the verso of some and a faint typed note on another.)

(Please note there is handwriting in blue or black ink or typed text on the verso of some; there is a small tear on the bottom margin of one; and sadly all were shot somewhat blurry.)

organisées le 11 novembre 2017

à Dallas aux Etats-Unis.


Lot 89001: A Marilyn Monroe Unusual Inscribed 'Frame Glass' to Arthur Miller, Circa 1960.
A black and white photograph of the star circa 1956, looking wistful, housed in a black wooden frame with the glass signed by her in red wax pencil "I know when / I am not there / for you -- !!!" with her added line marks below forming what look like "X's" or "M's" or both but hard to decipher; consigned directly by the daughters of Aaron Frosch [Monroe's attorney] who said that when their father was handling MM's divorce from Arthur Miller, she gave Frosch a number of items she didn't want anymore, including this photograph which she evidently inscribed to Miller as an apology; interestingly, MM wrote this note with a colored wax pencil, the same kind she used to cross out images of herself on contact sheets that she didn't like; also intriguing to speculate about the photograph itself: it was likely a favorite of hers or Miller's and it was probably hanging somewhere in the couple's home where MM knew Miller would see her message on it. (Please note the inscription has changed to an orangish color and it's faded due to age.)

Lot 176: MARILYN MONROE FREE ASSOCIATION NOTES
 Four pages torn from an Italian agenda, dating between 1955 and 1956. It is believed that the pages correspond to Monroe's work with Dr. Hohenberg in which she began practicing self-analysis and working on her repressed memories. The notations in pencil jump from one topic to the next, wandering around the physical pages themselves and even passing from one page to the next and then back again. It is difficult to follow, but the topics include examining her childhood need to lie to her teacher, her physical insecurities, self-conscious thoughts of what others think of her drinking, speculation that "Peter" is capable of violence and possibly gay as well as a touching passage about Arthur Miller: "I am so concerned/ about protecting Arthur/ I love him-and he is the/ only person-human being I have/ ever known that I could love not only/ as a man to which I am attracted to practically/ out of my senses about-but he is the only/ person-as another human being that I trust as/ much as myself-because when I do trust my-/ self (about certain things) I do fully, and I/ do about him also." Another revealing passage reads in part, "… fear to touch my own body/ after Buddy (I started to write Bad instead of Buddy-/ slip in writing?)/ because A.I. punished me/ with fear and whipped me-/ ‘The bad part of my body’ she said-/ must never touch myself/ there or let anyone." It is believed that "A.I." refers to Aunt Ida Martin, a foster mother who punished Monroe as a child, possibly after a sexual abuse incident, with the "Buddy" mentioned here.

Lot 189: MARILYN MONROE HANDWRITTEN NOTE
 A handwritten note on unlined paper, annotated “for Kris,” dated September 9, most likely used as a reminder for Monroe to discuss the noted issue with her psychoanalyst, Dr. Marianne Kris. The note reads "Remember, somehow, how Mother always tried to get me to 'go out' as though she felt I were too unadventurous. She wanted me even to show a cruelty toward woman [sic]. This in my teens. In return, I showed her that I was faithful to her. Also written on the note is the passage “Jane’s 10th Birthday on 7th same year,” obviously regarding Jane Miller, Arthur Miller’s daughter, who was born on September 7."

 A single sheet of lined paper from a six-ring agenda, with a draft of a letter written, on two sides, to Monroe's psychoanalyst, Dr. Hohenberg, 1956. The letter skips through many topics and references Monroe's difficulties in breaking ties with her former acting coach, Natasha Lytess, and her optimism in beginning to work with Paula Strasberg. She is also buoyant in her mention of Arthur Miller, stating, "Arthur writes me every day-at/ least it gives me air to/ breathe-I can't get used to the fact/ that he loves me and I keep waiting/ for him to stop loving me-though I/ hope he never will-but I keep telling/ myself-who knows?"

Lot 205: MARILYN MONROE TYPED LETTER TO DR. RALPH GREENSON
 A vintage file copy of a six-page typed letter from Monroe to Dr. Ralph Greenson, the California-based psychiatrist who treated Monroe in the period leading up to her death. This deeply emotional letter, dated March 2, 1961, was written while Monroe was staying at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center for three weeks of recuperation following her stay at New York’s Payne Whitney Psychiatric Clinic. The letter is done as a stream of conscious recollection of Payne Whitney.
Passages in the letter include:
There was no empathy at Payne-Whitney — it had a very bad effect — they asked me after putting me in a 'cell' (I mean cement blocks and all) for very disturbed depressed patients (except I felt I was in some kind of prison for a crime I hadn’t committed. The inhumanity there I found archaic. They asked me why I wasn’t happy there (everything was under lock and key; things like electric lights, dresser drawers, bathrooms, closets, bars concealed on the windows — the doors have windows so patients can be visible all the time, also, the violence and markings still remain on the walls from former patients). I answered: 'Well, I’d have to be nuts if I like it here.'"
I sat on the bed trying to figure if I was given this situation in an acting improvisation what would I do. So I figured, it’s a squeaky wheel that gets the grease. I admit it was a loud squeak but I got the idea from a movie I made once called Don’t Bother to Knock. I picked up a light-weight chair and slammed it, and it was hard to do because I had never broken anything in my life — against the glass intentionally. It took a lot of banging to get even a small piece of glass – so I went over with the glass concealed in my hand and sat quietly on the bed waiting for them to come in. They did, and I said to them 'If you are going to treat me like a nut I’ll act like a nut.' I admit the next thing is corny but I really did it in the movie except it was with a razor blade. I indicated if they didn’t let me out I would harm myself — the furthest thing from my mind at that moment since you know Dr. Greenson I’m an actress and would never intentionally mark or mar myself. I’m just that vain.”
The letter also takes several sentimental turns with Monroe fondly referencing Joe DiMaggio and Yves Montand. Monroe closed the letter with “I think I had better stop because you have other things to do but thanks for listening for a while. Marilyn M.”

Answer number 11 explains her stay at the Payne Whitney clinic, writing, "Payne Whitney gives me a pain/ It was obviously an error of judgment to place me in Payne Whit. and the doctor/ who recommended realized it and tried to rectify it. What my condition warranted/ was the rest and care I got [at] Presbyterian Hospital." Number 19 states, "[M]y sleep depends on my state of satisfaction and that varies with my life-my dreams/ are too intimate to be revealed in public/ My nightmare is the H Bomb."

The letter reads in part, "[L]ast summer Mr. Ballard of our office, and I showed you the house at the corner of 57th Street and Sutton Place and Mr. Arthur Krim's house on Riverview Terrace. I spoke to Miss Stengel yesterday and told her of a house which we have just gotten listed for sale at 241 East 61st Street. She asked me to send you the particulars on this house as she thought you might be interested in it. I am enclosing our setup. ... The garden duplex apartment is now occupied by the owner and would be available to a purchaser for occupancy. You may possibly have been in this apartment as Miss Kim Novak ... just moved out in September. Before that it was occupied by Prince Aly Khan." The letter is accompanied by the setup sheet listing the details of the property as well as the price of $200,000.

Lot 519: MARILYN MONROE ARCHITECTURAL DRAWINGS FOR 61st STREET MANHATTAN PROPERTY
 An original letter from John E. Holland of the Charles F. Noyes Real Estate Company dated November 15, 1961, addressed to Miss Marjorie Stengel, Monroe’s secretary, at Marilyn Monroe Productions, Incorporated, 444 East 57th Street, New York, stating, “I am enclosing herewith Photostats which I had made of the drawings adding a stairway which would include all or half of the third floor with the duplex garden apartments. These sketches may be somewhat confusing, but I could easily explain them if you would like to have me do so,” together with six Photostat copies of original architectural drawings for the redesign of an apartment located at 241 East 61st Street in New York. The drawings go into great detail as to the redesign of the apartment, with space for an art studio and specific notes stating, “This could be another bedroom or boudoir, or health studio with 'massage' table, 'chaise lounge,' private living room…or…with numerous 'closets.'”
Interestingly, these architectural drawings from November 1961 imply that Monroe was considering relocating from the home she shared with husband Arthur Miller on East 57th Street to a three-story apartment on East 61st Street. Monroe and Miller divorced earlier in 1961. Even more interesting is the fact that, as Monroe considered a new apartment in New York City near the end of 1961, she made an offer on January 12, 1962, on a house in Brentwood, California. She moved into 12305 Fifth Helena Drive in Brentwood in March 1962.

Lot 269: MARILYN MONROE ARTHUR MILLER HANDWRITTEN BOOK DEDICATION TO MARILYN MONROE
 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.

The letter instructs Hedda to order more stationery for Monroe from the Chase Press at 247 Park Avenue in New York, "... if the information under 'Stationery' in the telephone book is right." Redmond continues, "I would think about 250 sheets and envelopes would suffice for sometime, but usually it costs very little more to get 500 of each... (I just has a call from Pat Newcomb for 50 sheets of each and that doesn't leave much more on hand in case she again asks me for that amount." The box of envelopes included in this lot is half full and indeed was a box of 500, quite possibly the very order mentioned in this letter written less than four months before Monroe's death.

Dossier Médical


lot 1257: 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; 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 appear 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 upwards 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).
