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 22: CECIL BEATON TRYPTICH PHOTOGRAPH OF MARILYN MONROE
A 1956 photograph of Marilyn Monroe Miller taken by society photographer Cecil Beaton.
In one of her most famous sittings, the actress is posed reclining, holding a rose. The photograph is signed on the mat Cecil Beaton and is accompanied by two page autograph letter signed from Beaton. He describes his fascination and perspective on his subject in detail, "Miss Marilyn Monroe calls to mind the bouquet of a fireworks display, eliciting from her awed spectators an open mouthed chorus of ohs and ahs... In her presence, you are startled, then disarmed, by her lack of inhibition. What might at first seem llike exhibitionism is yet counterbalanced by a wistful incertitude beneath the surface. If this star is an abandoned sprite, she touchingly looks to her audience for approval. She is strikingly like an overexcited child asked downstairs after tea. The initial shyness over, excitement has now gotten the better of her. She romps, she squeals with delight, she leaps onto the sofa. She puts a flower stem in her mouth, puffing on a daisy as though it were a cigarette. It is an artless, impromptu, high spirited, infectiously gay performance. It may end in tears. Equally impromptu is her general appearance. This canary blond nymph has been so sufficiently endowed by nature as to pay no attention to the way she looks. Her hair, her nails, her make-up, have a makeshift, spontaneous attractiveness. It is all very contemporary: Marilyn Monroe conjures up two straws in a single soda, juke-boxes, sheer nylons and drive- in movies for necking (does she not project a hynotized nymphomania?). This, then, is the wonder of the age - a dreaming somnabular, a composite of Alice in Wonderland, Trilby, or a Minsky artist. Perhaps she was born the post war day we had need of her. Certainly she has no knowledge of the past. Like Giraudoux's Ondine, she is only fifteen years old; and she will never die." Cecil Beaton, June 1956.
- Encased in a silver tryptich, engraved on the center panel To Marilyn Monroe Miller Love Nedda and Joshua Logan. Gelatine silver print. 1956. Signed "Cecil Beaton" in red pencil on the mount.  

Estimate: $15,000 - $20,000 / Sold: $145,500

Lot 25: AN ELABORATE HAREM COSTUME (12)
In December 1958 Marilyn Monroe sat for a Life Magazine photo shoot with photographer Richard Avedon. In addition to posing as Jean Harlow, Marlene Dietrich, Lillian Russell, and Clara Bow, she also donned an exotic harem girl's outfit with appropriate hair and make-up to imitate Theda Bara in Cleopatra, with the hope of winning the role that ultimately went to Elizabeth Taylor. The skirt of orange and yellow chiffon scarves is attached to a gold lam bikini bottom with an ornate belt of embossed gold leather encrusted with amber-colored imitation jewels; the gold lam top designed with snake motif cups. Together with matching headdress and three imitation gold slave bracelets and four copies of Life Magazine, including the 1962 issue of the magazine that reprinted with the photographs.

1999-Christies_AUCTION-Lot030  


Lot 31: PROMPTBOOK FOR "LET'S MAKE LOVE"
Typescript, 33 pages (of 35, without pages 23 and 25, typed on rectos only). Bound in yellow wrappers (several pages detached and loosely inserted, some pages with creases and other signs of use, covers worn).
MARILYN MONROE'S COPY, evidently used in the filming, with her lines circled in red crayon on many pages, and with very extensive notes in pencil and ink on inside wrappers and throughout the text. Random notes on the front cover include "The situation," "enjoy,""just work for the situation," and "dream sequence:everything you do-do more/Amanda in a dream." On the inside front cover are a number interesting inscriptions, including "using my intelligence [sic]/am not a baby any longer," "she's a person/I am playing her," and (possibly referring to her character, Amanda) "For the theatre/she'll do anything." The inside back cover too contains some interesting self-admonitory notes: "Accept it, summon all strength needed - save myself for other things/don't fight/enjoy when I can," and "Not intense/leads to only tension/relax." Every page of the promptbook is marked up, with Marilyn's lines underlined or bracketed in bright red ink, there are numerous changes in the lines and cues noted, and the margins of each page contain notes in ink and in pencil, evidently made at different times during the filming. Her extensive notes - which reveal Monroe's very serious and meticulous efforts to perfect her role as "Amanda Dell," the showgirl being romanced by an incognito billionaire - are too numerous to do more than briefly sample here. At the bottom of page 3, she writes "what a small world only theatre"; on page 4, where she is describing the attitudes toward women in the theatre, she writes "types like J. Gould," and reminds herself to say certain lines "like a child." National politics are the subject on a note on page 9, where she has written: "What's wrong with the Democratic party letting Nixon win" (the filming took place during the Presidential contest between Nixon and Kennedy). At page 8, she writes "Joan of Arc" at the top of the page, and, in the margin: "Joan of Arc [sic] hears voices - sound the wind makes in Roxbury around the corner of the house- like a human whistle." At the top of page 14, in bold letters, she writes "don't rush" and "scene made by the silences/don't rush on the silences on the lines rush if necessary." At the top of page 33 appear several provocative inscriptions: "If I have to kill myself I must do it," and "acting must/occur not be made/use something to make/this possible" At the end of her lines, on the last page, she records the final moments of the film: "he kisses her vastly." On the inside back wrapper she has written several telephone numbers including that of Dr. Greenson, her Beverly Hills psychiatrist.

Mimeographed typescript, title page and 147 pages (printed on rectos only). Punched and bound with three brass rivets, the different settings ("Ranch House,""Car,""Bar,"Mustanging") marked with alternating white or pink index tabs affixed to certain pages (title page soiled, some margins frayed).
- MARILYN MONROE'S COPY, with the initials "M.M." on title page and large note "Paula's script" deleted in pencil, the lines of the character "Roslyn" underlined in pink ink and her character's name circled in the same color ink throughout. At the top of the title, Marilyn has written, rather cryptically, "The effort is made by one's will." With Monroe's pencilled notes on 46 pages of script and on facing blank pages. On the verso of page 6 are several notes including: "play the situation/don't push it,""when she listens she smiles, when she talks, she doesn't," and "talk differently to him than to her!" On the verso of page 8 are the notes "plead for understanding," "try to smile a little," and "not to worry how I say it," and others. A note on the verso of page 14 reads "look straight at Gable - just look don't say anything don't do anything," and on the verso of page 13, she characterizes Roslyn as "stange lovely quality/not bitter/not blaming/realizing/no pressure now/I hoped so much that things would be different." At the bottom of page 16 Marilyn has written "lean back, stretch, unconcerned feminine sex." On page 20, where Isabelle cautions Roslyn about cowboys, Marilyn has written "men that are men can't be trusted." On page 37, Roslyn has the line "I didn't want children. Not with him," and on the facing blank, connected by a pencil line, Marilyn has written "Like with J.D." (Joe DiMaggio?). At page 72, where Perce is thrown from his horse during the rodeo and injured, Marilyn records:"this is the most dramatic thing so far - its - as if something has happened to her [Roslyn] - she is lost." On the blank verso of page 44, is an extensive inscription commenting on Roslyn's kissing Gay:"she kisses him because she could say that she's lonely - then when he doesn't seem to respond she's hurt then glad for the interruption."

Estimate: $8,000 - $10,000 / Sold: $31,050

- MARILYN MONROE'S COPY, with her pencilled initials "MM" on front wrapper, and with extensive notes and markings on 20 pages of the script, in pen and pencil, including extensive deletion of lines in the scene numbered 108 (which she has labelled "love scene"). Her notes are often reminders to herself regarding the action: at scene 31 she notes "keep looking at him"; at scene 45 she writes "make believe he is scrubbed up in a tuxedo"; next to liness inscene 82 "gently, like to a child," and "whisper, then let go." In scene 111, where her character is trying to calm an agitated man, she notes "stroke head, finger on lips," and later in the scene she adds a new line: "women do changes - a man can make that difference." Her notes in scenes 118 to 130 are extensive and quite interesting, and include "walk - tiredness, weariness, inside exhillerated [sic]; "the words are on a thin thread." Next to the lines in which her character cannot see and becomes agitated, she writes "as if all in a dream trying to find myself with these men - am I hearing what I hear." Further on, in scenes 131 to 148, Monroe has made notations including "all the stangers in the world," "stand on a spot of earch and call to the moon - calling into infinity," "in a forest she is covered/in a desert she stands exposed," and "smile - human madonna." At the end of scene 148 she adds a fascinating though cryptic note referring to her acting: "Nightclub - I'm not ashamed of that/hold onto...that as Lee [Strasberg] says of my acting/say it to myself." On the same page, she writes "don't at results/let it occur," and "observe/react/let it happen."

 Lot 48: SCRIPT FOR SOMETHING'S GOT TO GIVE, 1961
Screenplay by Arnold Schulman. November 22, 1961. Screenplay. Confidential. For Planning Purposes Only.
Confidentiality notice, mimeographed title page and 138 pages script (printed on rectos only). Bound in light green paper wrapper with Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation logo, title on spine (one tear to front cover).
MARILYN MONROE'S COPY, with numerous markings and notes in pencil on 39 pages. On the blank page facing the title she has written:"she maneuvers [sic], she gets him to chase her - he[sic] resents her leaving her husband." On the title page appear a number of notes and page references to the script and the observation "at one point in the story two women like each other but hate the man." Below, she writes, emphatically, "not a story for MM," and adds, "it's for a man and just any two girls except the first 45 pages." On the same page, she apparently records her reactions to the change of screenwriter: "why was the writer who wrote it let go?" and queries "New Producer, How come?" ON page 57, where the stage directions call for Richard and Priscilla to "embrace and kiss passionately," she has added: "but mechanically." On page 58, Monroe likens the towering rage of the forsaken Ellen to the emotions expressed in a song from Lerner and Loew's My Fair Lady, writing "I can do without you, or just you wait, Henry Higgins, just you wait." On page 69, Monroe has pencilled in what appear to be some ideas for the cinematic action. Instead of Ellen banging on the wall of the room honeymoon suite in which Priscilla and Ricahrd are kissing, Marilyn suggests: "she plays a record player very loud - and she does the twist and at certain beats in time with the music she bumps him against the wall." Continuing though, on the next page she writes "Ellen is getting tired her bumps are getting less enthusiastic and sad to put it mildly." Page 87 bears several notes, and the blank page facing it is covered with extensive pencilled notes concerning Ellen's lines, and suggesting a number of lines, including, "Now listen this happens to be a democracy - we're even the 50th state. We are no longer just a possession of the U.S.A." Monroe is caustic about certain weak features of the script: on page 126 in the script, the lines of the character Richard include a particularly awful pun: "You know the old saying - cast your broad upon the waters." In the margin Marilyn writes, "Not funny." On page 130, next to rather silly lines by Priscilla about the availabilty of men, she writes "Not a good speech," and next to Ellen's response to Priscilla, she comments succinctly: "sick." Following the final scene (Richard and Ellen kissing), she writes in large letters: "NO NO NO."

Estimate: $8,000 - $10,000 / Sold: $36,800

On page 7, which is very heavily annotated, Monroe queries Bianca's use of the term "psychosomatic":"would she come right out with this sort of thing? I feel a hint of what she's getting to would be more real"; at another point, Monroe asks: "How can she say this at this point - too early? Gives away what she will be saying later...No! she is not a Nut but a cold Hard dame!...Maybe she could also be one of these 'practical' types - a bookkeeper at heart." On page 7a, Monroe comments on lines of the judge: "This is funny?" On page 12, heavily annotated, Monroe comments, "Ellen is no longer Irene Dune [the actress, Irene Dunne]- and the only people on earth I get on well with is [sic] men so lets have some fun with this opening scene on Ellen plus impact for the picture." On page 23, remarking on Bianca's taking Nick's hand, Monroe writes: "Let's remember she is frigid - We all know what Kinsey found out about most females. This has got to be one in one way or another." On verso of the last page are pencilled notes referring to the character Dr. Schlick, who has a German accent: "Alex Guinness/Oh goodness/on/vot - what/I am so merry." With a loose final page from a shooting script with bold ink notes about Schlick's accent: "Escuse me, plees...good Gude french u/Dat isgude/Dis is cross between D and TH."
