Lot 582: MARILYN MONROE HOME RENOVATION NOTEBOOK
 An extraordinary, blue cloth over board, "project management" three-ring binder kept by one of Monroe's assistants chronicling the purchase and ongoing renovation and decoration of her home located at 12305 Fifth Helena Drive in Brentwood, California. The notebook begins with an information sheet and lot diagram as well as a typed renovation and additions budget for the property totaling $34,877.36 against a purchase price of $57,609.95. The book also contains four pages of phone numbers, including neighbors, utilities, friends, secretaries, and professional colleagues, dated January 20, 1962; a list of the appliances in the kitchen and their cost; three pages regarding furniture and shipments from Mexico; approximately 36 business cards from various contractors; approximately 28 pages of notes on various renovation projects and to-do lists; a page with notes regarding terracing and planting the hillside; seven drawings of exterior floor plan for possible apartment above the garage for a cook; three renderings of options for a table and another decorative element for the home; and a listing of bills due as of August 16, 1962. The last page of the book lists "Moet - Champagne vintage 1952/ et Chandon a Epernay/ Cuvee Dom Perignon - 13.88." The book lists dates that furniture is due to be delivered from various suppliers, many after Monroe's death, as well as dimensions of each room of the home for the purpose of ordering "white India" carpet. It also has estimates to have the pool resurfaced, water heater moved, fountain built, and laundry room and shower expanded for people using the pool as well as notes about decoration of a "play room," fabrication of a new gate, bars for windows, and shelving to be built, among many other things. The notebook makes it very clear that the home was a work in progress at the time of Monroe's death.

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.

Monroe was said to have known about the X-rays and their use, about which she said, "Isn't that sweet." Monroe's hospital visit was said to be for her chronic endometriosis, or as her doctors described it, "For correction of a female disorder she has suffered for years."

The documents date from 1947 to 1949 and include two employment opening and four employment closing notices as well as one change of rate card. These cards represent Monroe’s first forays into film work. Notable are the cards filled out during her work on The Dangerous Years (20th Century, 1947), indicated on the opening and closing cards as being for a “Sol Wurtzel Prod.,” and a starting card dated August 27, 1949, for her role as Clara in the film A Ticket to Tomahawk (20th Century, 1950), indicating that Monroe flew to the filming location with a closing card from this film dated October 21, 1949, stating that filming was finished. One closing card indicates her first firing from Fox. Dated August 25, 1947, the card explains “Option Not Exercised” after only a year; the studio opted not to take Monroe under contract again at that time. Monroe changed her name from Norma Jeane to Marilyn Monroe when she got her contract with Fox in August 1946. Monroe’s salary during this period ranged from $125 to $200 per week.

Le fantôme de Marilyn à Fifth Helena Drive ?

Observez bien cette photographie prise le 5 août 1962, soit le lendemain de la mort de Marilyn Monroe, par le photographe Gene Anthony qui va photographier pratiquement toutes les pièces de la maison de Marilyn au Fifth Helena Drive, dans le quartier de Brentwood de Los Angeles, où Marilyn trouva la mort dans son lit.
Observe this photograph taken on August 5, 1962, the day after the death of Marilyn Monroe, by the photographer Gene Anthony who will photograph every room of the house of Marilyn at Fifth Helena Drive, at Brentwood, in Los Angeles, where Marilyn died in her bed. 

Fifth_helena_drive-inside-sun_room-1962-08-05-a

Il s'agit ici de la pièce appelée le "solarium" qui est en fait une pièce donnant sur le jardin, avec une grande baie vitrée laissant passer les rayons du soleil. Il est étrange de constater à gauche de la photo, une forme, peut être formée par les ombres, mais qui laisse fortement penser à Marilyn, qui se tiendrait debout, contre le mur. S'agit-il d'une photograhie truquée, obtenue d'un habile montage de superposition avec une photo de Marilyn, mais dans ce cas, quelle photographie de Marilyn a été utilisée ? Ou serait-ce le fantôme de Marilyn ?
This is the room called the "Sun Room" which is a room overlooking on the garden, with a large window letting the sun's rays. It is strange to see on the the left of the photo, a form, could be shaped by shadows, but strongly suggests Marilyn, who would stand against the wall. Is it a fake photograhy obtained with a clever montage overlay with a picture of Marilyn, but in this case, what Marilyn's photography was used ? Or is it the ghost of Marilyn?

5/08/1962 de Brentwood à la Morgue et Autopsie

Journée du dimanche 5 août 1962, au lendemain du décès de Marilyn Monroe.
Day of Sunday, August, 5, 1962, the day after the death of Marilyn Monroe.


 > à 4h25: Le Dr Hyman Engelberg (docteur généraliste de Marilyn) téléphone à la police (the West Los Angeles Police Station) pour dire que "Marilyn Monroe est morte. Elle s'est suicidée. Je suis chez elle."
at 4.25 am: Dr. Hyman Engelberg (Marilyn's doctor) calls the police (the West Los Angeles Police Station) to say "Marilyn Monroe died. She committed suicide. I'm at her home."


> à 4h30: les employés de l'agence de publicité d'Arthur Jacobs sont prévenus de la mort de Marilyn et décident de se retrouver à sa maison au Fifth Helena Drive. Michael Selsman se souvient: "C'était la panique, bien sûr. Les événements étaient déjà hors de contrôle, et là, elle était morte, la presse n'était pas contrainte de cacher ce qu'ils savaient, sauf, bien sûr, pour les choses sur Kennedy, qui sont apparues plus tard. Je repoussais les médias en disant que nous ne savions pas quelle était la cause de la mort, parce que nous ne le savions pas."
at 4.30 am: the employees of the advertising agency of Arthur Jacobs are notified of the death of Marilyn and decided to go to her home at Fifith Helena Drive. Michael Selsman remembers: "It was panic of course. Events were already out of control, and now she was dead the press didn't fell constrained to hide what they knew -except, of course, for the Kennedy stuff, which came later. I fended off the media by saying we didn't know what the cause of death was, because we didn't."


> à 4h40: Le sergent Jack Clemmons est le premier policier à arriver au domicile de Marilyn; il découvre Eunice Murray (la gouvernante) en train de faire le ménage, nettoyant la maison et mettant une lessive dans la machine à laver, avec d'autres linges propres pliés à côté, et les Dr Greenson et Engelberg dans la chambre avec le corps de Marilyn gisant dans son lit à plat ventre sous les draps: "Son corps avait été bougé. Marilyn était allongée sur le ventre dans ce que j'appelle la 'position du soldat'. Son visage était appuyé contre un oreiller, ses bras étaient sur les côtés, le bras droit légèrement plié, et ses jambes étaient parfaitement alignées, comme si elle prenait la pose pour des photos. J'avais l'impression d'arriver sur une scène de crime. J'étais déjà intervenu sur des scènes de suicides par barbituriques, et avant de mourir, les victimes font des convulsions, vomissent et leurs corps sont en distorsions. (...) Les boîtes de pillules posés sur la tablette avaient été clairement disposées en bon ordre et le corps délibérément repositionné. Tout semblait trop rangé."
at 4.40 am: Sergeant Jack Clemmons was the first police officer to arrive at the Marilyn' home, he discovers Eunice Murray (the housekeeper) doing housework, cleaning the house and putting a laundry in the washing machine, with other clean cloths folded side, and Dr. Greenson and Engelberg in the bedroom with Marilyn's body lying in bed face down under the sheets, "Her body seemed to have been moved. Marilyn was lying face down in what I call the soldier's position. Her face was in a pillow, her arms were by her side, her right arm was slightly bent, and her legs were stretched out perfectly straight, as if she were posing for pictures. It was the most obviously staged death scene I have ever seen. I had already seen scenes of suicides by barbiturates, and before dying, victims suffer convulsions and vomiting in a somewhat contorted position.. (...) The pill bottles on her bedside table had been arranged in neat order and the body deliberately positioned. It all looked too tidy".

Arrivée de l'inspecteur Robert E. Byron, qui recueille les déclarations du Dr Greenson, du Dr Engelberg et de Eunice Murray. Il consigne dans son rapport officiel: "L'opinion de l'officier de police est que Mrs Murray était aussi vague et évasive que possible dans ses réponses aux questions concernant les activités de Miss Monroe avant sa mort."
Arrival of Inspector Robert E. Byron, whoh collects reports of Dr. Greenson, Dr. Engelberg and Eunice Murray. He writes in his official report: "The opinion of the police officer is that Mrs. Murray was vague and evasive as possible in her answers to questions about the activities of Miss Monroe before her death."


> Vers 5 h, le journaliste Joe Ramirez (qui travaillait pour la petite agence "City News") reçoit un appel lui annoncant le décès de Marilyn; mais l'information arrive trop tard pour paraître dans les journaux du jour.
> William "Bill" Woodfield (photographe) et Joe Hyams (correspondant au "New York Herald Tribune") se rendent ensemble chez Marilyn sitôt qu'ils apprennent la nouvelle.
Tout comme James Bacon (chroniqueur d'"Associated Press") qui racontera: "Je recourus à une vieille ruse; je me suis présenté devant un flic en prétendant que le bureau du coroner m'avait dépêché sur place. Je suis entré dans la maison mais ne suis pas resté longtemps, juste le temps pour la voir gisant sur son lit. Je remarquai que ses ongles étaient négligés."
Around 5 am, the journalist Joe Ramirez (who worked for the small agency "City News") receives a call announcing the death of Marilyn, but the information comes too late to appear in daily newspapers.
> William "Bill" Woodfield (photographer) and Joe Hyams (corresponding to the "New York Herald Tribune") go together at Marilyns soon as they hear the news.
Just as James Bacon (columnist of "Associated Press") that will tells: "I resorted to an old trick, I introduced myself to a cop claiming that the coroner's office had sent me there. I went into the home but did not stay long, just long enough to see lying her on bed. I noticed that his nails were overlooked."

Au Fifth Helena Drive, chez Marilyn, une foule de personnes se constitue peu à peu, s'agglutinant aux abords de la maison: des journalistes reporters de la télévision, de la radio, de la presse, des paparazzis, des camions et voitures obstruent la rue.
De nombreuses photographies sont prises autour de la maison: devant le patio, la chambre à travers la fenêtre, mais aussi le jardin, où l'on y voit deux animaux en peluche dans l'herbe devant la piscine; Marilyn avait reçu la veille (le 4 août), par colis, un tigre en peluche, dont on ne connait pas le destinataire.
At Fifth Helena Drive, at Marilyn's home, a crowd of people is gradually agglutinating near the house: journalists, reporters from television, radio, press, paparazzi, trucks and cars clog the street.
Many photographs are taken around the house: front patio, the bedroom through the window, but also the garden, where we see two stuffed animals in the grass in front of the pool; Marilyn had received the day before (August 4) per package, a stuffed tiger, which we don't know the recipient.

> Vers 5h10: Jack Clemmons est remplacé par un officier de police d'un grade supérieur (le chef de la police William Parker) pour mener l'enquête et ainsi, soumettre au silence Clemmons qui avait relevé plusieurs faits incohérents (Murray lui avait informé qu'elle avait découvert le corps à minuit, alors qu'elle affirmera par la suite avoir découvert le corps à 3h; d'après Clemmons, le décès devait remontait à environ 8 heures). Clemmons va ensuite appeler son collègue Jim Dougherty, le premier mari de Marilyn, pour l'informer du décès de celle-ci. 
Around 5.10 am: Jack Clemmons is replaced by a police officer of higher rank (the Chief policer William Parker) to investigate and thus submit to silence Clemmons who had identified several inconsistent facts (Murray had informed him she had discovered the body at midnight, while she will affirm after to have discovered the body at 3 am; for Clemmons, the death had occurred some 8 hours before). Clemmons will then call his colleague Jim Dougherty, the first husband of Marilyn, informing him of the Marilyn's death.

Arrivée de l'officier Don Marshall qui fouille la maison à la recherche d'un message attestant le suicide. Il interroge les plus proches voisins de Marilyn, Mr et Mrs Abe Landeau, qui déclarèrent n'avoir rien entendu de suspect pendant la nuit.
Arrival of the officer Don Marshall who search in the house a message stating suicide. He asks the nearest neighbors of Marilyn, Mr. and Mrs. Abe Landeau, who declared to have heard nothing suspicious during the night.


> L'envoyé du coroner, Guy Hockett constate que le décès "remonte à plusieurs heures. Elle était raide et il fallut près de 5 minutes pour la redresser. (...) Elle gisait, assez droite, dans une position semi-foetale. Ses cheveux, desséchés, étaient en très mauvais état à cause de tous ces traitements. Elle n'était pas très belle à voir, au point qu'on avait du mal à croire que c'était bien elle. On aurait dit une pauvre femme ordinaire qui venait de mourir. Pas de maquillage, les cheveux négligés sans mise en plis, un corps fatigué. Nous eûmes tous la même impression, à des degrés divers."
The representative of the coroner Guy Hocknett notes that the death "goes back several hours. She was stiff and it tooks about 5 minutes to recover her. (...) She lays quite right in a semi-fetal position. Her hair, dried, were in very poor condition because of all these treatments. She was not very nice to see, to the point that it was hard to believe it was really her. She seemed as a poor ordinary woman who had just died. No makeup, hair styling neglected, a tired body. We had all the same impression, to varying degrees."


> Vers 5h30: Patricia Newcomb arrive à la maison de Marilyn (elle racontera avoir été prévenue par téléphone à 4 h par Milton Rudin, l'avocat de Marilyn), provoquant une scène, en hurlant aux photographes: "Allez-y, mitraillez, vautours ! ... Espèces de buveurs de sang ! Vampires ! Ne pouvez-vous même pas la laisser mourir en paix ?"; Eunice Murray raconte que lorsque Pat Newcomb est arrivée, "il y avait tant de gens que personne ne l'a remarquée." Pat Newcomb se souvient que "il y avait plus de cinq personnes dans la maison" quand elle y est entrée; elle dit aussi ne pas avoir vu le corps de Marilyn. Elle restera quasiment tout le temps au téléphone, traitant des appels téléphoniques des médias du monde entier; elle racontera: "J'ai parlé à plus de 600 journalistes ce dimanche là. C'était mon travail de faire ce que je pouvais pour Marilyn."
Pat Newcomb était "hystérique" comme le dira Eunice Murray: "Même après que la police décida de fermer la maison, elle refusait toujours de partir. Il a fallu qu'on la fasse sortir."
Around 5.30 am: Patricia Newcomb arrives at Marilyn's home (she will tell to have been prevented by phone at 4 am by Milton Rudin, the Marilyn's lawyer), screaming to photographers: "Go ahead, shoot pictures, vultures ! ... Bloodthirsty Vampires ! Can't you even let her die in peace ?" Eunice Murray says that when Pat Newcomb arrived, "there were so many people that nobody noticed her." Pat Newcomb remembers that "there was more than five people in the house" when she comes in, she also says to don't have seen the Marilyn's body. She will stays almost the time on the phone, dealing with telephone calls from media around the world; she will tell later: "I spoke to over 600 journalists that Sunday. It was my job to do what I could for Marilyn."
Pat Newcomb was "hysterical" as Eunice Murray will tell: "Even after the police decided to close the house, she still refused to go. We had to make exit her. "


> Quand Allan Whitey Snyder, le maquilleur de Marilyn qui, dès qu'il apprend la triste nouvelle, se précipite chez Marilyn, il se fait renvoyer par un policier qui lui refuse l'accès à la maison. Il racontera "qu'il fallait que je voie de mes yeux ce qui était vraiment arrivé." Quand il remonte dans sa voiture et entend à la radio que "Marilyn est morte d'une overdose de barbituriques qu'elle s'est administrée", Snyder ne parvient pas à croire au suicide.
When Allan Whitey Snyder, Marilyn's makeup artist, who, when he learns the sad news, rushed to Marilyn's home, he gets fired by a policeman who refuses him the access to the house. He will tell "that I had set my eyes what really happened." When he goes back to his car and heard on the radio that "Marilyn died of an overdose of barbiturates that she administered herself" Snyder can not believe in suicide.

> Joe DiMaggio, qui est à San Francisco, apprend la nouvelle très tôt le matin. Il se rend immédiatement à Los Angeles, contacte son fils Joe Jr. qui se trouve au camp Pendleton, et se réfugie avec deux de ses amis dans la suite 1035 du Miramar Hotel. Il refuse de faire la moindre déclaration à la presse et reste enfermé dans sa chambre d'hôtel. Son ami Harry Hall racontera que Joe pleurait sans consulter les nombreux télégrammes reçus: "Il considérait Bobby Kennedy comme responsable de sa mort."
Personne ne réclame le corps de Marilyn et le coroner ne peut délivrer le corps qu'avec l'autorisation d'un membre de la famille: sa mère en est incapable, et sa demie-soeur Berniece, contactée par télégramme, donne sa permission à Joe DiMaggio de s'occuper des funérailles.
Joe DiMaggio, who is in San Francisco, heards the news early in the morning. He immediately goes to Los Angeles, contacts his son Joe Jr. who is at Camp Pendleton, and stays with two of his friends in the suite 1035 of the Miramar Hotel. He refuses to make any statement to the press and remains locked in his hotel room. His friend Harry Hall tells that Joe was crying without consulting the many telegrams he received: "He considered Bobby Kennedy as responsible for her death."
Nobody claims the body of Marilyn and the coroner may not issue a body with the authority of a member of the family: her mother is unable to act, and her half-sister Berniece, contacted by telegram, gives permission to Joe DiMaggio to arrange the funeral.

> Peter Lawford est chez lui à L.A. Il est en état de choc, hagard, en larmes, terrassé, répétant sans cesse qu'il était la dernière personne à avoir parlé à Marilyn (au téléphone). Sa mère, Lady May, surnommée "Lady L." le contacte par téléphone quand elle apprend la nouvelle, et elle reproche à son fils de ne pas être allé chez Marilyn, quand cette dernière appela Peter. Puis quand Rupert Allan téléphone à Lawford, il a au bout du fil un homme hors de lui, furieux, aux propos incompréhensibles, entrecoupés de sanglots.
Peter Lawford is at his home L.A. He is in shock, distraught, in tears, overwhelmed, constantly repeating that he was the last person to have spoken to Marilyn (on the phone). His mother, Lady May, named "Lady L." calls him when she heards the news, and she blames her son to don't have gone to Marilyn's home, when she called Peter. Then, when Rupert Allan phone Lawford, he has on the phone a man out of him, furious, with incomprehensible words, interspersed with sobs.

In the property of the Kennedys on the East Coast where the family gathered around the pool, the news of the death of Marilyn is broadcoast on the radio: it was a full silence. Pat Kennedy Lawford collapses in tears.

> A peine à 6 km de chez Marilyn, Jayne Mansfield apprend la nouvelle chez elle dans sa maison du Pink Palace; elle devient hystérique et pleure beaucoup, serrant son assistant Ray Strait: "Je suis peut être la prochaine sur la liste." (Jayne était aussi la maîtresse des frères Kennedy).
At Just 6 km from Marilyn's home, Jayne Mansfield heards the news at her Pink Palace home; she becomes hysterical and crying a lot, shaking his assistant Ray Strait: "I may be next on the list." (Jayne was also the mistress of the Kennedy brothers).


> à 7h30: Les hommes du coroner, accompagnés de Guy Hockett (propriétaire du Westwood Memorial Park Cemetery), emportent le corps de Marilyn, dissimulé sous une couverture bleue ordinaire, sur un chariot, et le chargent à bord d'un vieux break, qu'ils conduisent au dépôt mortuaire de Westwood Village, où sa dépouille reste quelques heures dans un réduit encombré de brosses et de bocaux où le photographe Bud Gray du "Herald Examiner" fait un cliché de sa dépouille enveloppée.

 > Marilyn est ensuite transportée dans la case 33 de la County Morgue, au palais de justice de Los Angeles. Son numéro de dossier du coroner est le 81128.
Un photographe parvient à s'introduire dans la morgue: Leigh Wiener, qui enverra ses photographies au magazine Life, parvient à prendre de nombreux clichés en échange de bouteilles de whisky offertes aux employés: un employé ouvre la porte en acier inoxydable et tire l'étagère coulissante où repose la dépouille de Marilyn. Wiener la mitraille, couverte et découverte (il aurait pris 6 clichés de Marilyn morte).
Marilyn is then transported in box 33 of the County Morgue of Los Angeles. Her coroner file number is 81128.
Two photographers manage to get into the mortuary: Bud Gray of "Herald Examiner" takes a snapshot of his body wrapped; and Leigh Wiener, who will send his photographs to "Life" magazine, manages to take many pictures in exchange for whiskey bottles offered to employees: an employee opens the stainless steel door and pulls the sliding shelf where the body of Marilyn remains. Wiener shoots pictures of Marilyn with covered and uncovered (he would take 6 shots of Marilyn dead).

Les hommes en noir ont même vérifié le contenu de la voiture de Hazel et Rocky avant leur départ.
Cependant, ces allégations affirmant que des papiers ont été détruits ont été formellement démenties par les officiers de police présents sur les lieux toute la journée.

Les réactions des proches de Marilyn recueillies par les journalistes:

  • James Dougherty: "Je suis atterré". Quand son collègue Jack Clemmons lui apprend la nouvelle, Dougherty se tourne vers sa femme et lui dit: "Fais une prière pour Norma Jeane. Elle est morte."
  • Arthur Miller, à Paris avec sa nouvelle femme Inge Morath, refuse de s'exprimer publiquement, sans doute étant trop bouleversé. A l'un de ses proches, il aurait dit: "Il fallait bien que ça arrive. Je ne savais ni quand, ni comment, mais c'était inévitable."
  • Isadore Miller (père d'Arthur): "Elle était comme ma propre fille. Elle était une fille gentille et bonne. Je suis tellement désolé, je n'étais pas là pour être avec elle. Elle a du se sentir vraiment seule et effrayée."
  • Billy Wilder, interviewé à sa descente d'avion par des journalistes qui ne le tiennent pas au courant, ne dit que des banalités sur Marilyn. Il apprendra la nouvelle dans le taxi qui l'amenait à l'hôtel.
  • Joshua Logan: "Marilyn était l'une des personnes les plus sous-estimées de la terre !"
  • Paula Strasberg: "Marilyn était une actrice comme il n'en existe aucune autre."
  • Milton et Amy Greene sont à Paris et apprennent la nouvelle par téléphone à leur hôtel. Ils sont bouleversés (avant leur départ, après un mauvais pressentiment, Amy avait incité Milton à contacter Marilyn, qui semblait heureuse et leur avait assurer que tout allait bien).
  • Frank Sinatra se dit "profondément affligé (...) Elle va beaucoup me manquer." George Jacobs, son domestique, racontera que "Il demeura dans une sorte d'état de choc pendant des semaines après la mort de Marilyn, profondément angoissé."
  • Kay Gable (veuve de Clark Gable) apprend la nouvelle au flash d'information à 7 heures: "Je suis allée à la messe, j'ai prié pour elle."
  • La famille Greenson se dit "accablée de chagrin". Le Dr. Greenson rencontre DiMaggio et les deux hommes se serrent dans les bras, se consolant l'un et l'autre.
  • Peter Lawford: "Pat et moi l'aimions profondément. C'est probablement l'un des êtres humains les plus merveilleux et les plus chaleureux que j'ai connus. Tout ce que je pourrais dire d'autre serait superflu."
  • L'Osservatore Romano du Vatican: "Elle a été la victime d'une mentalité et d'un mode de vie dont on l'a forcée à être le symbole. Sa mort transcende les limites d'une tragédie personnelle pour atteindre un retentissement universel."

Ses parents (Donald Eugene Hogan (conducteur de grue, 1947-2009) et Virgie Mae (vendeuse, née Tabers le 12 juillet 1951)) se sont mariés le 22 février 1967 et divorcent le 4 novembre 1969. Anna a cinq frères et soeurs et leur père les abandonne alors qu'Anna Nicole est encore bébé; ils sont alors élevés par leur mère et leur tante, jusqu'à ce que leur mère se remarrie en 1971 avec Donald R. Hart et Anna Nicole change alors son nom pour Nikki Hart. Elle fait ses études à l'école "Durkee Elementary School" et au lycée "Aldine Senior High School" à Houston. Mais le beau-père d'Anna la frappe. Elle part pour emmènager avec sa jeune soeur Kay Beall chez sa tante, dans une petite bourgade du Texas, à Mexia, et étudie au lycée "Mexia High School" (voir photo ci-contre). Anna Nicole échoue sa première année et abandonne l'école lors de sa deuxième année et à 17 ans, elle travaille comme serveuse dans un snack de poulet à Mexia. C'est alors qu'elle rencontre Billy Wayne Smith, 16 ans, qui était cuisinier dans le snack. Ils se marient le 4 avril 1985 et ont un fils, Daniel Wayne Smith, né le 22 janvier 1986. Mais le couple se sépare rapidement l'année suivante, et Anna part vivre avec son fils à Houston pendant un an. Le divorce est prononcé le 3 février 1993. Elle décroche un emploi de serveuse, puis devient strip-teaseuse topless dans une boîte de nuit sous les pseudonymes de Nikki et Robin. Elle ne rencontre guère de succès en tant que strip-teaseuse car elle a une petite poitrine. Elle économise alors de l'argent pour se faire poser des implants mamaires et devient alors une strip-teaseuse très populaire.

anna_mag_playboy_1992_03_usaEn 1991, elle commence à prendre des cours de chant et de mannequinat; c'est alors qu'en octobre de la même année, elle découvre une petite annonce du magazine Playboy. Elle se rend à une audition de séances photos du magazine, mais les photographes lui déconseillent à la vue de sa large stature et la difficulté à la cadrer. Néanmoins, les photos parviennent aux mains de Hugh Hefner, le grand patron de Playboy, qui insiste pour qu'Anna Nicole fasse la couverture de mars 1992 du magazine (voir photo ci-contre): la séance est photographiée par Stephen Wayda et elle prend officiellement le nom d'Anna Nicole Smith, bien qu'à l'origine elle avait suscité un intérêt d'avoir un nom à la mémoire de Marilyn Monroe

Avec Playboy, Anna Nicole fait sensation, déclarant vouloir devenir "la prochaine Marilyn Monroe".
D'ailleurs, elle admire Marilyn Monroe depuis son enfance et s’habillait comme elle pour lui ressembler. Elle a même pris un peu de poids et s’est entraînée à retrousser la lèvre supérieure, afin d'augmenter sa ressemblance avec Marilyn.
Elle est choisie comme playmate de Playboy (« Miss mai 1992 » puis Playmate de l’année 1993) et comme prévu, elle est comparée à Marilyn Monroe pour sa plastique pulpeuse et sa blondeur peroxydée

En 1992, elle obtient un contrat pour la campagne de publicité Guess (jeans et parfums) et succède ainsi au top model Claudia Schiffer. Les photographes de Guess la comparent rapidement à Jayne Mansfield et la photographie dans des situations similaires à la star des années 1950s:

Pour noël 1993, elle apparaît sur des grands panneaux publicitaires en Suède et en Norvège pour la marque H&M:

anna_nicole_hm_1 anna_nicole_hm_2 anna_nicole_hm_3

anna_mag_nyElle apparaît en couverture du magazine New York du 22 Août 1994 (voir photo ci-contre), intitulé "White Trash Nation". Anna Nicole prend un avocat et attaque le magazine pour utilisation non autorisée de sa photographie, et que l'article entâche sa réputation. La photo utilisée a été prise lors d'une pause juste pour le fun.

En octobre 1991, pendant qu'elle se produisait au club de strip-tease Gigi de Houston (rebaptisé aujourd'hui "Pleasures") Anna Nicole rencontre le vieux milliardaire magnat du pétrole J. Howard Marshall, et ils entament une relation. Durant leur relation de deux ans, il fit de nombreux cadeaux à Anna Nicole (maisons, bijoux...) et la demanda en mariage à plusieurs reprises. Elle attend alors que son divorce d'avec son premier mari soit prononcé (le 3 février 1993) pour se marier avec Marshall le 27 juin 1994 à Houston: Anna Nicole a 26 ans et Marshall en a 89. De nombreux ragots commencent alors à circuler, notamment sur le fait qu'Anna Nicole s'est mariée pour l'argent. Elle racontera plus tard qu'elle n'a jamais vécu auprès de Marshall, et qu'elle ne lui a jamais fait l'amour; c'est à peine qu'ils se sont embrassés sur la bouche une dizaine de fois. Toutefois, elle a toujours maintenu qu'elle aimait son mari et que l'âge n'avait pas d'importance. Treize mois après le mariage, Marshall meurt le 4 août 1995 à Houston. Anna Nicole est alors impliquée dans une bataille juridique contre le fils de son défunt mari, E. Pierce Marshall, au sujet de sa part d’héritage qui s’élevait à 1,6 milliard de dollars. Après de nombreuses procédues, elle finit par obtenir en mars 2002, 88 millions de dollars de la succession de son mari, mais cette décision est annulée par la Cour d’appel de San Francisco. Et le 1er mai 2006, elle fut autorisée par la Cour suprême à poursuivre son action en justice. Mais le décès du fils de J. Howard Marshall, Pierce Marshall, le 24 juin 2006, modifie la donne. Mais la fille d'Anna Nicole pourra à son tour poursuivre les procédures en droit de succession. Les avocats poursuivent les procédures qui sont toujours en cours.

Naked_Gun_33_The_Final_InsultMalgré son succès en tant que mannequin, Anna Nicole Smith n'a jamais trouvé la même reconnaissance ou le succès en tant qu'actrice. A 26 ans, elle fait ses débuts à l'écran dans la comédie "The Hudsucker Proxy" (1994, avec Tim Robbins). Elle obtient ensuite un rôle plus important dans "Naked Gun 33⅓: The Final Insult" (1994, voir photo ci-contre), qui rencontre un joli succès au box-office et pour lequel elle reçoit des critiques faborables. Mais Anna Nicole Smith souhaitait être prise au sérieux en tant qu'actrice, et les studios d'Hollywood se sont toujours montrés réticents; au contraire, ils n'ont mis en avant que sa plastique et sa personnalité d'une blonde écervelée dans les rôles qu'ils lui ont confié au cinéma. Voulant être respectée dans le métier, elle accepte un rôle majeur dans "To the Limit" (1995), et malgré la médiatisation et le budget conséquent alloué au film, les critiques se montrent négative quand au jeu d'actrice d'Anna Nicole. En 1995, elle joue son propre rôle dans l'épisode pilote de "The Naked Truth" et tente à nouveau une percé au cinéma avec le film à petit budget "Skyscraper" (1996) qui fait un bide. C'est alors qu'elle se tourne vers des rôles à la télévision, dans les séries "Sin City Spectacular" (1998), la série de Playboy "Anna Nicole Smith: Exposed" (1998), "Veronica's Closet" et "Ally McBeal" (1999).

Anna_Nicole_ShowAu début des années 2000, sa carrière stagne et elle devient plus connue pour ses frasques dans les tabloïds que pour ses rôles. Elle signe alors sa propre émission de télé réalité "The Anna Nicole Show" (voir photo ci-contre), diffusé sur la chaîne E! dès le 4 août 2002 (par coïncidence, sept ans jour pour jour après la mort de Marshall, mais aussi 40 ans après la mort de Marilyn Monroe). Le public découvre alors la vie privée d'Anna Nicole: son petit ami, l'avocat Howard K. Stern, son fils Daniel, son assistante Kimmy, son caniche miniature Sugar Pie, son décorateur d'intérieur Bobby Trendy, son cousin Shelly Cloud, et d'autres petits amis de passage. Après deux saisons et 27 épisodes, l'émission est stoppée en raison des chutes d'audience, même si elle cartonne auprès des ados. Le dernier épisode est diffusé le 1er juin 2003 (là encore, par coïncidence, le jour d'anniversaire de Marilyn Monroe).
Elle revient au cinéma dans "Wasabi Tuna" (2003), et décroche un petit rôle dans "Be Cool" (en 2005, avec John Travolta), puis dans le petit film indépendant parodique "Illegal Aliens" (2006, qui sort directement en vidéo l'année suivante). C'est durant cette période (2002-2005) qu'Anna Nicole sombre dans la dépendance des médicaments: le public la découvre totalement droguée, tenant des propos incompréhensibles dans son show de télé-réalité, mais aussi lors de ses apparitions sur scène, comme aux American Music Awards. Suivie par une psychiatre en 2006, celle-ci révèlera qu'Anna Nicole souffrait d'un trouble de la personnalité borderline. De plus, elle avait pris beaucoup de poids au début des années 2000; qu'elle va ensuite perdre en suivant un régime drastique et devenir plus mince que jamais.

En 2004, elle représente la fondation de défense animale PETA, et parodie la chanson "Diamond's are a girl's best friend" de Marilyn Monroe pour une publicité de la PETA, transformée en "Gentlemen prefer fur-free blondes" ("Les hommes préfèrent les blondes sans fourrure"). Elle se montre très engagée, militant contre la chasse aux phoques au Canada, et contre la cruauté présumée envers les animaux envers des entreprises américaines.

anna_nicole_smith5Le 7 septembre 2006, Anna Nicole donne naissance à sa fille, Dannielynn Hope Marshall Stern, aux Bahamas. Sur le certificat de naissance, figure le nom de Howard K. Stern comme étant le père, qui était l'avocat d'Anna Nicole. 
C'est lors de son séjour à la maternité qu'un drame va se produire: le fils aîné d'Anna Nicole, Daniel Smith, 20 ans, va mourir dans la chambre d'hôpital de sa mère lors d'une de ses visites, le 10 septembre 2006. Réclamant une autopsie qui va conclure que
Daniel est mort d'une combinaison mortelle de Zoloft, Lexapro et de méthadone, son corps ne sera enterré que six semaines après sa mort aux Bahamas. Selon Howard K. Stern, Anna Nicole a été totalement dévastée de chagrin après le décès brutal de son fils: "Anna et Daniel étaient inséparables. Daniel était incontestablement la personne la plus importante de sa vie". Lors de l'enterrement, elle a même tenté de rentrer dans le cercueil de son fils afin d'être enterrée avec lui.
Le 28 septembre, Anna Nicole et Howard K. Stern organise une petite cérémonie où ils s'échangent des anneaux et des voeux. Mais ce "mariage" reste informel. Ils ont néanmoins négocié la vente des photos au magazine "People" pour près d' 1 000 000 de Dollars.

anna_gibsonAnna Nicole et Howard Stern s'installent aux Bahamas, pour éviter que des tests de paternité de sa fille soient procédés aux Etats-Unis. A la fin de l'année 2006, elle obtient le statut de résident permanent aux Bahamas. Le 11 Février 2007, des journaux publient une photographie (voir ci-contre) d'Anna Nicole habillée et allongée dans son lit dans les bras de Gibson, un ministre. Suite à ce scandale, le ministre va démissionner et revendiquer que les photos, prises par Stern, sont innocentes. Anna Nicole possédait une maison (un manoir) de 900 000 Dollars aux Bahamas, qui, d'après ses dires, lui avait été donnée par un ancien petit ami, G. Ben Thompson,   un promoteur immobilier. Mais Thompson a affirmé qu'il avait simplement prêté le financement à Anna Nicole pour acheter la propriété, mais qu'elle ne lui avait jamais remboursé le prêt. Il engage alors des poursuites contre elle et Anna Nicole reçoit un avis d'expulsion qu'elle ignore. Lorsque la famille de Thompson récupère le manoir, ils y trouvent de la méthadone dans un réfrigérateur.

anna_nicole_stern_2006_bahamasFin 2006, Anna Nicole est hospitalisée suite à une pneumonie. Début février 2007, elle loge dans l'hôtel Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino de Hollywood. Elle est souffrante, avec plus de 40,5 ° de fièvre. De plus, elle reste toujours autant déprimée car elle ne s’est jamais remise de la mort de son fils Daniel; elle avait d'ailleurs fait une tentative de suicide. Le 8 février 2007, Anna Nicole Smith tombe dans le coma et une infirmière qui s'occupe d'elle appelle les secours, qui tentent de la réanimer. Mais il est trop tard: Anna Nicole meurt, âgée de 39 ans. Trois hypothèses sont alors évoquées: une cause naturelle, une cause liée à l’ingestion de drogues ou produits chimiques ou un mélange des deux. Finalement, la police annonce le 27 mars qu'Anna Nicole a succombé à une overdose accidentelle. Le 13 mars 2009, Howard Stern et les médecins Sandeep Kapoor et Khristine Eroshevich sont inculpés pour conspiration et prescriptions de médicaments frauduleuses pour avoir donné des milliers de médicaments pendant des années à Anna Nicole, la menant à une overdose fatale en 2007.

dannielynn_birkheadAprès le décès d'Anna Nicole, un photographe, Larry Birkhead, va soutenir qu'il est le père de Dannielynn; Va s'ensuivre une longue  bataille juridique, avec de nombreux rebondissements: d'abord, Donna Hogan, une demie-soeur d'Anna-Nicole, va déclarer que cette dernière avait congelé du sperme de son second mari, Marshall, prétendant ainsi que Dannielynn serait en fait la fille de Marshall. Ensuite, c'est le mari de Zsa Zsa Gabor, Frédéric Prinz von Anhalt, qui va déclarer avoir eu une relation de dix ans avec Anna Nicole et pourrait donc être aussi le père de l'enfant. Puis, c'est au tour de son ancien garde du corps, Alexander Denk, de déclamer être lui aussi le père de la fillette. Enfin, même la propre mère d'Anna Nicole, Virgie Arthur, va réclamer la garde de la petite et fera appel contre les décisions de justice. Si tous se rèclament la paternité de l'enfant et en veulent la garde, c'est que les enjeux financiers sont importants car Anna Nicole laisse derrière elle un héritage conséquent. En 2007, des tests ADN vont confirmer que c'est le photographe Larry Birkhead qui est le père de Dannielynn: il en obtient la garde et fait modifier le nom du père sur le certificat de naissance. La petite Dannielynn est aujourd'hui très suivie par les médias et paparazzis, et va même poser en 2012 pour une campagne publicitaire pour GUESS (voir photo ci-contre), comme sa mère dans les années 1990s.

Grande admiratrice de Marilyn Monroe, Anna Nicole s'est inspirée de la star durant toute sa vie.
Leur point commun: une enfance pas très heureuse, un mariage précoce, la prise de médicaments et d'alcool au cours de leur vie, et la même mort tragique. Anna Nicole collectionnait des photographies et posters de Marilyn, ainsi que de nombreux objets à son effigie (sacs, chapeaux, vêtements, coussins, pendules, tasses, figurines, tableaux, commodes etc...) tel qu'on a pu le découvrir lors de la vente aux enchères organisée par Julien's Auction en 2010.

La seule et unique demeure de Marilyn Monroe, où elle y trouva la mort, est actuellement mise en vente, au prix de 3 595 000 dollars. Située au Fifth Helena Drive, dans le quartier chic de Brentwood à Los Angeles, 900049 Californie, la maison de type hacienda au style mexicain comporte quatre chambres, trois salles de bains, une salle à manger et un salon, une pièce bureau avec en extérieur un jardin abrité des regards par des arbres et un portail, ainsi qu'une terrasse et une piscine; la maison fut bâtit en 1929 sur un terrain de plus de 2000 mètres carrés et acheté par Marilyn en 1962 pour 75 000 dollars. Aucun des sites d'agences immobilières ne mentionnent le nom de Marilyn Monroe. D'après les photos communiquées par les agences, on se rend compte que l'intérieur de la maison a subit de nombreux travaux d'aménagement, ce qui l'éloigne de la décoration de type hispanique que Marilyn avait faîte en 1962; par contre, il semblerait que la piscine et la terrasse en extérieur soient d'origine.
