26/06/1953 Grauman's Chinese Theater

jean_harlow_graumanMarilyn Monroe, enfant, avait souvent essayé de mettre ses mains et ses pieds dans les empreintes des stars de cinéma (comme celles de Jean Harlow, photo ci-contre), devant le Grauman's Chinese Theater. "Je n'ai jamais pu trouver pieds à ma taille, ils étaient toujours trop grands", raconta-t-elle.
Le 26 juin 1953, peu avant la sortie de 'Les hommes préfèrent les blondes',
Marilyn Monroe et Jane Russell, les deux actrices du film, sont invitées à poser leurs empreintes dans le ciment frais. Marilyn suggére que pour mieux rester fidèles à leurs célébrités, Jane (pour laquelle Howard Hugues avait dessiné un soutien-gorge spécial) aurait dû se coucher par terre pour poser la forme de ses seins, et qu'elle-même se serait assise pour laisser celle de ses fesses! L'idée n'ayant bien sûr pas été retenue, elle demande qu'un diamant soit posé pour le point de son "i" de "Marilyn" en l'honneur de la chanson du film "Diamonds are the girls best friends". Un diamant de fantaisie est placé, mais rapidement descellé et volé.
Marilyn Monroe, as a child, had often tried to put her hands and feet in the footprints of movie stars (such as Jean Harlow, see picture above) before the Grauman's Chinese Theater: "I never could find my feet in size, they were always too big", she told.
In June 26 , 1953, shortly before the release of 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes' on screen, Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell, the two actresses of the film, are invited to put their footprints in the wet cement. Marilyn suggests that in order to remain faithful to their celebrities, Jane (for whom Howard Hughes had designed a special bra) should lie on the ground to put the shape of their breasts, and they would sit to let prints of their ass ! The idea have obviously been unsuccessful, so she asks that a diamond is put to point the "i" in "Marilyn" in honor of the song from the movie "Diamonds are the girls best friends". A fancy diamond is placed, but quickly loosened and stolen.

 Le jour même de la cérémonie, Gladys Whitten Rasmussen, sa coiffeuse, reçoit un coup de fil affolé de Marilyn: "J'ai besoin de toi, s'il te plaît Gladness. S'il te plaît, vient, et amène aussi ta maman." La situation semble grave à en juger par la voix, jusqu'à ce que Marilyn explique: "Je ne sais pas quelle robe mettre !" Gladys, qui habite dans un autre quartier de Los Angeles, bondit dans sa voiture: "On aurait dit une gamine ! Je ne pouvais pas m'empêcher de l'aider."
The day of the ceremony, Gladys Whitten Rasmussen, her hairdresser, receives a frantic phone call from Marilyn: "I need you, please Gladness. Please, come and take also your mom." The situation seems serious judging by her voice, until Marilyn says: "I don't know how to dress!" Gladys, who lived in another part of Los Angeles, jumps in her car: "She looked like a little girl ! I couldn't prevent to help her."
