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.

Specialization

Vidéo et Paroles
de la chanson
Specialization
interprétée en duo par Marilyn Monroe et Frankie Vaughan
en
1960 pour le film  Let's make love

If you peruse the people in the news,
The people that the magazines refer to.

You'll find that they are naturally soigné,
The special ones that all of us defer to.

They've each a trait that seems to state first raters.

Which separates them from the small potaters.

Maria Callas
Is booked in Dallas.
The carpet's rolled out and they're sold out clear to the skies.

Specialization, specialization.

They'll love your high notes if

If you specialize.

When Elvis rotates,
Each creep notates.
It may look funny,
But the money's what it supplies.

Specialization, specialization.

You'll meet the colonel if

If you specialize.

Salome did it with veils.
Abe Lincoln did it with rails.
Toledo did it with scales !
The Chinese built that Wall.

Specialized star.

Marc Clement gives gals the tremors.
This Casanova sure has the roverest eyes.

Specialization, specialization.

You'll rule the barnyard if

If you specialize.

The Farrows did it with springs.
And Darwin did it with links.
Some robbers did it with Brinks.
Carnegie used a Hall.

Specialized star.

Van Cliberen caused us a high burn.
While we were blushin'
Some Russian gave him the prize.

Specialization, specialization.

They'll give you medals if,
They'll love your high notes if,
You'll meet the Colonel if,
You'll rule the barnyard if,

If you specialize!
I specialize.


Traduction

Specialisation

Si vous heurtez les gens à la Une
les gens dont les magazines font mention

Vous découvrirez qu'ils sont naturellement soignés
ceux devant qui nous nous inclinons

Ils ont tous un trait qui semble dire "première classe"
Qui les sépare des autres qui sont en guenilles

Maria Callas, va chanter à Dallas
Le tapis est déroulé et tout est plein à craquer

Spécialisation, spécialisation

On aimera tes aiguës si ...

tu te spécialises

Quand Elvis tournoie, tous les fans le voient
C'est peut-être ridicule mais c'est d'argent qu'il s'agit

Spécialisation, spécialisation

Vous rencontrerez le Colonel si ...

vous vous spécialisez

Salomé l'a fait avec des voiles, Abe Lincoln avec sa tête
Toledo avec ses balances, les Chinois ont construit une Muraille

Star spécialisée,

Marc Clement fait frissonner les filles
Ce Casanova a vraiment des yeux de velours

Spécialisation, spécialisation

Vous dirigerez la basse cour si ...

vous vous spécialisez

Les Farrows l'ont fait avec les ressorts, et Darwin avec l'évolution
Certains voleurs l'ont fait avec la Brinks, Carnegie a fait son Hall

Star spécialisée.

Van Cliberen nous a fait rôtir
Et pendant que nous rougissons, un Russe a emporté le prix

Spécialisation, spécialisation

On vous donnera des médailles si ...
On aimera vos aiguës si ...
Vous rencontrerez le Colonel si ...
Vous dirigerez la basse cour si ...

Vous vous spécialisez
Moi, je me spécialise !

Incurably Romantic

Vidéo et Paroles
de la chanson
Incurably Romantic
interprétée en duo par Marilyn Monroe et Yves Montand 
 
mais aussi en duo par Marilyn Monroe et Frankie Vaughan
en
1960 pour le film  Let's make love


>> Duo Yves Montand / Marilyn Monroe

I'm susceptible to stars in the sky
I'm incurably romantic
If they're all covered with sighs
The wildest of lies seem true
Each time a loverbird sings
I have no defenses
My heart is off on wings
Along with my senses

I'm a setup for the moon when it's bright
I'm incurably romantic
And I shouldn't be allowed out at night
With anyone quite like you
But oh your arms are nice
And it would be awfully nice
If you turned out to be
Starry-eyed like me
And... incurably romantic too

Each time a loverbird signs
I have no defenses
My heart is off on wings
Along with my senses

I'm a setup for the moon when it's bright
I'm incurably romantic
And I shouldn't be allowed out at night
With anyone quite like you

But oh your arms are nice
And it would be awfully nice

If you turned out to be
Starry-eyed like me
And... incurably romantic too


>> Duo Frankie Vaughan / Marilyn Monroe

  I'm susceptible to stars in the sky
I'm so romantic
When they're covered with sighs
The wildest of lies
Seem true

Each time a loverbird sings
I have no defenses
My heart is off on wings
Along with my senses

I'm a setup for the moon when it's bright
I'm incurably romantic
And I shouldn't be allowed out at night
With anyone quite like you

But oh your arms are nice
And it would be awfully nice
If you... turned out to be
Starry-eyed like me
And incurably romantic too


Traduction

Romantique Incurable

Je suis sensible aux étoiles dans le ciel
Je suis un romantique incurable
S'ils sont couverts de soupirs
Les mensonges, même les pires, semblent vrais
Chaque fois que des tourtereaux chantent
Je suis sans défense,
Mon coeur s'envole
Et tous mes sens s'affolent.

Je suis un piège pour la pleine lune
Je suis un romantique incurable
Et je ne devrais pas pouvoir sortir le soir
Avec quelqu'un qui te ressemble
Mais, oh, tes bras sont si beaux
Et ça me ferait tellement chaud
Si tu finissais par être une rêveuse comme moi
Et tout aussi incurable

Chaque fois que des tourtereaux chantent
Je suis sans défense,
Mon coeur s'envole
Et tous mes sens s'affolent

Je suis un piège pour la pleine lune
Je suis un romantique incurable
Et je ne devrais pas pouvoir sortir le soir
Avec quelqu'un qui te ressemble

Mais, oh, tes bras sont si beaux
Et ça me ferait tellement chaud

Si tu finissais par être une rêveuse comme moi
Et tout aussi incurable

  • Le compositeur de cette chanson est Jimmy Van Heusen qui travailla avec le parolier Sammy Cahn.
  • Cette chanson existe en deux versions dans le film: l'une interprétée par Marilyn et Yves Montand; et l'autre par Marilyn en duo avec Frankie Vaughan. La version avec Yves Montand est bien plus longue que celle avec Frankie Vaughan; et Marilyn ne chante pas les mêmes couplets.
