Berniece recalls Monroe telling her that "The first time I saw my father, I was lying flat on my back in the hospital. I looked at him and I studied his face and features, and I saw that mother had told me the truth, that he was my father." Considering the fact that this is a get-well card, coupled with the fact Monroe stated to her half-sister Berniece that she first met her father when she was hospitalized, Gifford himself clearly hand delivered this card to Monroe when he visited her during one of her hospital stays. Given the fact that they ostensibly had no relationship prior to this one and only known meeting, it is highly unlikely that Gifford traveled across the country from his home in Hemet, CA to visit Monroe during one of her NYC hospital stays. Based upon all available information, the visit most likely occurred during one of her many hospitalizations in Los Angeles.
It has been widely reported that Monroe unsuccessfully attempted to contact her father by telephone many times over the years. Monroe persisted visiting the town of Hemet, California in an attempt to locate him which is confirmed by numerous locals reporting Marilyn Monroe Spottings in Hemet. It is believed that Gifford did not want to upset his wife and children by allowing Monroe to be part of his life.
This card is the only known material artifact that establishes any connection or communication between Gifford and his famous daughter. Monroe's mother Gladys dated Gifford in 1925, he was at the time her supervisor at RKO pictures. While working for him as a film negative cutter, Gladys became pregnant and gave birth to a daughter on June 1, 1926. Norma Jeane was Gladys third child. Although Gladys registered the surname Mortenson on Norma Jeane's birth certificate, using the name of her ex-husband instead of Gifford, it has been assumed for decades that Gifford was actually Marilyn Monroe's father.
Gifford was finally definitively proven to be Monroe's father through DNA testing in 2022. Although this card includes no warm salutation from the man that was indeed her father, it further complicates our understanding of the relationship, or what was believed to be the complete absence of a relationship with arguably the most important male figure in Monroe's life. Previous scholarship recounts Monroe's attempts to contact her father resulting in only bitter rejection and a broken heart, yet this card supports Berniece Miracles first-hand account and it is proof that he reached out to her in a time of need.

An original gouache and ink on paper costume sketch from the production of Joseph L. Mankiewicz's classic film All About Eve (20th Century Fox, 1950) by Edith Head.

Davis appears on-screen with Marilyn Monroe, in a breakthrough performance, wearing the gown. Head won the Oscar for Best Costume Design, Black-and-White for this Oscar winning Best Picture; Davis was nominated for Best Actress. The sketch is faintly penciled "for Bette Davis" to the right side, and initialed, possibly by Mankiewicz, near the right bottom hem.

Lot 258: 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; and 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 are 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 upward 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, 1962). 9 x 12 inches

Two letters with dates in 1952 and 1953 are from an aspiring songwriter and singer by the name of Mrs. John H. Spurgeon. Another letter is from Harold Mirisch dated May 7, 1959. Another letter on letterhead from The First Baptist Church dated December 4, 1958 is from a man named Bill Lennon, requesting Marilyn's permission to write to the TV show "What's My Line?" and list his occupation as secretary to Marilyn Monroe. Included is a very direct letter to Lennon in response, reading in part, "Miss Monroe would not under any circumstances permit the use of her name in any misrepresentation." Also included, a carbon-copy of a letter addressed to "John" dated February 1, 1960 (likely designer John Moore) asking if he'd been advised by the Railway Express Company about a message left at the Beverly Hills Hotel for Marilyn that read, "The dress you expected from Talmack was destroyed in a plane fire." Handwritten annotations on the letter list a "Mr. Clemens, Head of Air Department," and a phone number for the claims department, not in Monroe's handwriting. Overall a very interesting look at the types of issues Monroe dealt with on a daily basis.

From the personal files of Marilyn Monroe: A one-page typed letter from Ruth Edens, apparently an acquaintance of Monroe's from her childhood, dated August 24, 1954, and reading in part, "I have long intended to write you this letter because I have particularly wanted to say that when you used to visit me at my Balboa Island cottage, you were a shy and charming child whose appeal, it seems to me, must have reached the hearts of many people. I could never seem to get you to say much to me, but I loved having you come in and I missed your doing so after you'd gone away. I wondered about you many times and was delighted when I discovered you in the films. I hope the stories in the magazines which say you felt yourself unloved throughout your childhood, are merely press-agentry. In any case, I want you to know that I, for one, was truly fond of you and I'm proud of you for having developed enough grit to struggle through to success." The letter also states, "I hope you are getting much happiness out of life, little Marian [sic]. I saw so much that was ethereal in you when you were a little girl that I fell sure you are not blind to life's spiritual side. May all that is good and best come your way!? The letter is signed "Sincerely, Ruth Edens." 9 x 11 inches

Lot 288: MARILYN MONROE: ARTHUR MILLER HANDWRITTEN BOOK DEDICATION
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. 8.5 x 11 inches

The first page was published in the book Fragments and contains references to "The Sleeping Prince," an early production title for Monroe's film The Prince and the Showgirl, dating these writings to 1956.

She instructs herself to make a list of tasks and work on exercises, which perhaps explains the cryptic writings on the second page that did not appear in Fragments, reading in full, "From Ridding partly/ T Nautiousness [sic]/ Place/ personalization (A)/ weariness/ (J)/ (Ar)." 8.5 x 11 inches

Lot 434: MARILYN MONROE: PERSONALLY ANNOTATED "SOMETHING'S GOT TO GIVE" SCREENPLAY AND PAGES
A Something's Got To Give (20th Century Fox, 1962) mimeographed screenplay by Nunnally Johnson, 149 pages, blue cover dated March 29, 1962 reading "Final Confidential For Planning Purposes Only." The script, marked final, also dated March 29, 1962, contains notations in Monroe's hand throughout in pencil and green ink on 18 pages. Some of the notations are from Monroe's work with a Swedish dialect coach.
In addition to these notations, two typed pages of Monroe's dialogue are bound between pages 107 and 108 of the mimeographed script. These two pages contain Monroe's dialogue from one of the few scenes captured on film, with her extensive pencil notations. Raw footage of Monroe performing with Tippy the cocker spaniel and the children in this scene exists, and Monroe's notations are evident in the footage. The top of the page reads "Real Thought/ Mental Relaxation/ substitute children - B & J if necessary/ feeling - place the pain where it is not in the brow." B & J likely refers to Arthur Miller's children Bobby and Jane. Another notation next to one of Monroe's lines of dialogue reads simply "Mona Lisa," which does in fact mirror the expression she uses when delivering this line. Even the exaggerated "Ahhhhh---" that Monroe does at the beginning of each take in the raw footage is written on the page in her hand, reading in full, "Ahhh--Look for the light.?
The notations throughout the script also include notes in an unidentified hand criticizing certain points of the story, including "Too Harsh," "Naggy," "Dull" and many other comments. Overall, the notations in both the script and on the dialogue pages used by Monroe to film the scene with the children and Tippy the dog tell the story of a tedious script writing and editing process. Her dialogue notations are a revealing window into her process in performing some of the last scenes she ever recorded on film. 9.5 x 12 x 1 inches

Lot 451: MARILYN MONROE: DOG-RELATED POSTHUMOUS CORRESPONDENCE
An undated typed letter from Mrs. Edward Herdan of Los Angeles that reads:
"To whom it may concern: I was greatly taken aback when I saw the pet of Marilyn's in a picture with her. We were forced to put our pet to sleep on account of old age recently and she was a double of this little dog. We have been looking with grieving hearts for several months now, to find one that resembled our Shaggsy, but all in vain. If it were at all possible to get the dog we could give it an excellent home. Dr. Christenson of the Hollywood Cat and Dog Hospital was our Vet for fourteen years. Hope this request receives some consideration. Sincerely, Mrs. Ed Herdan."
Included is a copy of a letter from Inez Melson, Monroe's former business manager, dated September 4, 1962, reading:
"Dear Mrs. Herdan, I hope you will understand that I have not answered your kind letter about "Moff" before this because of the pressure of matters involving the affairs of Marilyn. I know how you must feel about your little "Shaggsy" and it would be wonderful if it were possible to send "Moff" to live with you. However, you will understand that her sister's dearest wish is to have him and I hope in due time to be able to send him to live with her. Unfortunately, in due process of law, even little "Moff" is a part of Marilyn's personal effects and thus, he has to wait. It grieves me greatly to refuse so many kind people and I only wish that I could grant the desire of each good person who would love "Moff" as his mistress loved him." The letter is signed, "Sincerely yours, Inez Melson, Administratrix of the Estate of Marilyn Monroe."
Frank Sinatra gifted the dog to Monroe in 1961. She named him Maf as a comic reference to Sinatra's mafia connections. Interestingly, people within Monroe's inner circle appear to be unaware of the correct spelling of the dog's name. Written correspondence reflects use of the names "Maff" and "Moff."
