Lot 920  MARILYN MONROE PHOTOGRAPHS BY ANDRE DE DIENES
Two black and white double-exposure photographs of Marilyn Monroe (circa 1946), both having photographer’s stamp on verso. Approximately 11 by 14 inches each. Reference: Similar photographs from this session can be seen on pages 210-232 of de Dienes’ book Marilyn (Taschen, 2002). De Dienes met 19-year-old aspiring model Norma Jeane Dougherty in 1945 after requesting a model from her agents at Blue Book Modeling for a then upcoming project. They immediately bonded and traveled together through the western states to capture Norma Jeane in various natural settings. During that trip, they became romantically involved and were briefly engaged. After their romance ended amicably, de Dienes continued to photograph Norma Jeane and well into her career as Marilyn Monroe. The chemistry between the two was undeniable; his work captured some of the finest images of the star. Many of the photographs can be seen in his book titled Andre de Dienes / Marilyn (Taschen, 2002).

 A 16mm reel of behind-the-scenes footage shot on the set of The Misfits (Seven Arts, 1961). The reel comes with the original envelope that is addressed to Marilyn Monroe from United Artists.

Accompanied by a document from UA titled “The Making of ‘The Misfits’/ (Narration for a 20-minute featurette)” with a personal note to Monroe affixed to the cover page.
The film begins with Monroe arriving in Reno, Nevada, with husband Arthur Miller and being received at the airport, then driving through Reno. The next scene appears to be a press conference with Monroe and co-stars Clark Gable, Montgomery Clift, Eli Wallach, Kevin McCarthy, and Thelma Ritter, director John Huston, and Miller.
The approximately 19-minute film goes on to show a variety of behind-the-scenes activities of the cast and crew beginning with the filming of Monroe and Ritter in a street scene that was cut from the final version of the film.
Other segments include Monroe at Harrah's Casino taking refreshment with Ritter, Huston, and a dog Monroe attempts to feed; the cast on location; street filming in Reno with the cast in a vehicle followed by a parade of observers; Monroe signing autographs; Monroe greeting and getting on a horse; shots of the cast being filmed riding together; aerial images of the set; a baseball game being played on set; a football being tossed on set with Miller and Huston joining in the game; and Monroe lounging with two other women on the hood of a car. The last part of the film shows the filming of a Misfits scene where Monroe is swimming and playing with a dog in the water. The very last image is of Monroe running from the water to embrace Gable. No audio. Accompanied by a DVD copy of the film.

Marilyn Monroe, ange et démon
Par François Forestier

sur nouvelobs.com  

Avec "Le Prince et la Danseuse", le conte de fées de Marilyn Monroe, dont on commémore le 50e anniversaire de la mort, tourne au cauchemar.

lenouvelobs_photo 
Une collection unique de près de 4.000 photographies de Marilyn Monroe, dont certaines jusqu'à présent non publiées, sera exposée en août en Pologne avant d'être mise aux enchères, a indiqué vendredi le quotidien Gazeta Wyborcza. (c) Afp

Marilyn, vêtue d'une robe sombre en velours, le cou orné d'une rangée de perles, descend l'escalier de marbre blanc. C'est une apparition magique. Laurence Olivier la prend par le bras, la mène vers son fauteuil. La conférence de presse pour annoncer le tournage du "Prince et la Danseuse" est prometteuse : Laurence Olivier, le plus grand acteur du monde, et Marilyn Monroe, la femme la plus célèbre du cosmos. Merveilleux casting.
Les journalistes, hypnotisés, demandent à Marilyn : "Vous allez continuer avec l'Actor Studios ?" Elle bat des cils, sa gorge palpite. Elle répond : "Je voudrais me développer de toutes les façons possibles." Silence. Laurence Olivier prend la parole : "Miss Monroe a un talent... Mmm... Extraordinaire pour vous faire croire une minute qu'elle est une petite chose coquine et, la minute suivante, vous convaincre qu'elle est une ravissante idiote", dit-il. Les photographes shootent au niveau du genou, espérant prouver que Marilyn ne porte rien sous sa culotte. L'atmosphère est électrique. Soudain, la bretelle de la robe de Marilyn cède. La salle devient dingue. Marilyn se rajuste, gênée, innocente, rougissante. Une assistante apporte une épingle de nourrice. Marilyn la lui a remise juste avant l'"accident".

"Fais comme si tu étais une bouteille de ketchup"

Depuis qu'elle est tombée sous de l'empire de Lee Strasberg, le gourou de l'Actor Studio, Marilyn s'emploie à devenir une tragédienne. Elle répète Eschyle, martèle Shakespeare, énonce James Joyce. L'épouse de Lee, Paula Strasberg, une sorte de sorcière adipeuse en djellaba noire et éternellement coiffée d'un chapeau de paille, cornaque Marilyn tout le temps, à prix d'or - 1 500 dollars la semaine. Les metteurs en scène deviennent fous, de voir cette ombre sinistre souffler des âneries à l'oreille de la blonde. "Fais comme si tu étais une bouteille de ketchup" ou "imagine une brosse à dents très sale", voilà les indications scéniques de la Strasberg.

Le précédent réalisateur de Marilyn, Joshua Logan, a failli verser dans la rage baveuse, pendant le tournage de "Bus Stop". Maintenant que la star est sa propre productrice, personne ne peut plus la contredire. Elle navigue entre son psy et son médecin, et fait des efforts pathétiques pour plaire à son nouveau mari, Arthur Miller, auteur dramatique en vogue. Lequel est empêtré dans ses déclarations devant la Commission des Activités anti-américaines. Soupçonné d'être communiste, il est invité à balancer des noms, comme son ex-ami Elia Kazan. Il ne le fera pas. Il finaude, se dérobe, a signé une pièce anti-McCarthy, "Les Sorcières de Salem". Cet intellectuel avec cette blonde ? C'est l'union de la Belle et de la Bête, daube la presse.

  Laurence Olivier à Marilyn : « Soyez sexy. » Catastrophe : c'est exactement ce qu'elle ne veut pas entendre. © DR  

Quand Marilyn et Miller sont arrivés en Angleterre pour « Le Prince et la Danseuse », ils ont été accueillis comme des seigneurs. Flanqués de quatre motards, ils ont été déposés à Parkside House, un manoir géorgien qui jouxte le palais de Windsor. Onze chambres à coucher, un parc privé, une armée de valets, thé à tous les étages. Mais la réception fastueuse masque le mépris de Laurence Olivier pour le maigre talent de dramaturge de Miller. De plus, Olivier est noyé dans les problèmes que lui pose son épouse, la sublime Vivien Leigh, qui le cocufle allégrement avec un autre acteur, Peter Finch, avant de s'offrir, nue sous un manteau de fourrure, au premier passant venu. C'est que lady Olivier a sombré dans une schizophrénie agressive. Sir Laurence, qui doit interpréter le rôle principal et mettre en scène le film, compte sur Marilyn pour redorer son blason. Il est sous le charme, absolument.

Tandis que Miller se met à écrire une adaptation de l'une de ses pièces, Marilyn se rend à l'essayage. Elle est dans son état non-Marilyn : blême, le cheveu gras, le regard égaré. Laurence Olivier est stupéfait. Derrière elle, à trois pas, Paula Strasberg. La magie s'effrite instantanément. On débarbouille l'actrice, on la maquille, on l'éclaire. Ouf, c'est réparé. Le conte de fées entre le grand-duc Charles de Carpathie et la danseuse Elsie, surnommée The Coconut Girl, peut commencer. Mince histoire d'amour, dans la tradition des pâtisseries viennoises - tout repose sur la légèreté, la drôlerie, la vivacité. C'est ce que Laurence Olivier essaie d'expliquer à Marilyn. Celle-ci le regarde comme une huître morte. Paula Strasberg murmure à l'oreille de l'actrice. Sir Laurence se contient pour ne pas faire expulser cette Carabosse. Le 30 juillet 1956, le tournage débute. Marilyn arrive une heure en retard. Le deuxième jour, deux heures. Le troisième… Les acteurs anglais sont ponctuels, connaissent leur texte, n'ont pas besoin de se chauffer comme les derviches de l'Actors Studio. Laurence Olivier se consume de colère. Marilyn, elle, pense qu'au contact de ce shakespearien renommé un peu de son éclat va déteindre sur elle. C'est son obsession. Le soir, avec Arthur Miller, elle ne songe qu'à sortir de son rôle de bimbo. Son mari l'observe avec dépit : il a épousé la plus belle créature du monde, il se retrouve avec une névrosée bourrée de pilules, torturée par son image, dévorée d'angoisse, agressive, agaçante. Il espérait être avec Marilyn, il est avec la Poison.

Laurence Olivier, costumé en aristocrate d'opérette, se tourne vers Marilyn et, juste avant que la caméra ne se mette en marche, lui dit : « Soyez sexy. » Catastrophe : c'est exactement ce qu'elle ne veut pas entendre. Elle est donc utilisée, une fois de plus, pour sa sensualité ? Pas pour son talent ? Elle fuit, s'enferme dans sa loge, appelle Lee Strasberg à New York, pleure la nuit, tempête dans les onze chambres à coucher, rage. On s'est moqué d'elle. Miller se cache la tête sous l'oreiller. Elle ouvre le carnet de notes de son mari, lit : « J'ai pensé avoir épousé un ange, je me suis trompé. » Là, Marilyn craque complètement. Elle a déjà été abandonnée par son père, par sa mère, par son producteur, par ses deux premiers maris. On la laisse tomber une fois de plus ? Miller repart aux Etats-Unis, pour apparaître devant les inquisiteurs. Marilyn avale des poignées d'anxiolytiques et boit du champagne. Puis elle couche avec le gentil assistant, Colin Clark, qui fera de cette aventure un livre - non, deux. En attendant, Laurence Olivier se retrouve avec deux folles : sa femme, qui vient de faire une fausse couche, et son actrice, qui est camée. Quand Arthur Miller revient, il fait grand cas de se montrer à la première londonienne de sa pièce « Vu du pont ». Il demande sa carte de membre du Comedy Club, devant les photographes. Pour ce faire, il doit certifier qu'il est éligible et que sa femme n'est pas « indésirable ». Il certifie énormément.

Lee Strasberg arrive au studio. Il lui est interdit d'entrer, il reste à la grille. Sa femme, qu'Olivier surnomme « The Beast », tempête. Marilyn plonge dans un marécage opiacé. Son look se détériore. Elle ne se souvient plus de son texte. Le directeur photo, Jack Cardiff, qui a travaillé avec Huston sur « African Queen » et avec le tandem Michael Powell-Emeric Pressburger, fait tout pour camoufler les dégâts. Par moments, Marilyn retrouve son éclat, sa vivacité, sa fraîcheur. Puis elle retombe dans une aboulie pâteuse, et déserte le plateau le lendemain. Ravie, elle écoute Lee Strasberg lui expliquer qu'elle est géniale, que Laurence Olivier est un acteur surestimé, qu'elle n'est pas jugée à sa vraie valeur. Son mari pense qu'elle est une « pute emmerdante », dit-elle à Strasberg. Arthur Miller rétorque que c'est faux, et que les Strasberg sont des serpents venimeux. L'ambiance est bien pourrie. Pour alléger, Miller emmène Marilyn à Stratford-upon-Avon, visiter le lieu de naissance de Shakespeare. La presse anglaise note que le couple fait chambre à part, désormais. Un adolescent enamouré campe devant le manoir, jour après jour, une fleur à la main. Finalement, Marilyn sort, lui adresse quelques mots et le remercie pour la belle rose. Puis elle l'embrasse sur la bouche. Un demi-siècle plus tard, le vieil homme est encore émerveillé.

De fable charmante, « le Prince et la Danseuse » vire au cauchemar. Quand Laurence Olivier demande à Marilyn de se déplacer pour être dans l'axe de la caméra, celle-ci rétorque : « Vous ne me voyez pas. Pas la peine d'être ici, alors », et elle s'en va. Milton Greene, l'associé de Marilyn, ex-photographe devenu producteur, s'alarme de la note de téléphone (la psychanalyse longue distance, c'est cher), des retards, du budget qui explose. Un jour que Marilyn attend avec Paula dans sa loge, l'assistant fait savoir au metteur en scène que la star est prête. Il entend Laurence Olivier, gentleman exquis, pair du royaume, dire  : « Qu'elle aille se faire foutre. » Et Marilyn recommence ses caprices : alors que l'équipe attend, elle commande des robes, des chaussures, des ensembles. Le 29 octobre, elle est officiellement présentée à la reine, devant laquelle elle fait une jolie révérence, en robe lamée or, bretelles de topazes. Sur les clichés, Sa Majesté regarde avec curiosité le décolleté très ajusté de sa voisine de palier. Mais peut-être jauge-t-elle les topazes…

Le tournage s'achève en novembre, avec onze jours de retard. Avant de rentrer aux Etats-Unis, où Arthur Miller a finalement été très légèrement condamné pour avoir « manifesté du mépris pour la cour » et non pour ses opinions de gauche, le couple se rend à une soirée, pour rencontrer deux acteurs français : Simone Signoret et Yves Montand. Deux ans plus tard, Marilyn tournera « Le Milliardaire » avec ce dernier. Le 13 juin 1957, « le Prince et la Danseuse » sort au Radio City Music Hall, l'une des plus belles salles de New York. A cette occasion, Marilyn, apparemment heureuse, décrit à la presse la petite maison au bord de la mer où elle passe ses vacances avec son mari, « juste assez grande pour nous et des enfants », et, au détour d'une interview, dit : « La seule chose dont j'aie peur, c'est de moi-même. » Elle a raison : sa consommation de pilules s'accroît, ses absences aussi. Bientôt, elle sera internée. Mais, pendant le tournage du « Prince et la Danseuse », un événement mondain a eu lieu : Grace Kelly est devenue princesse de Monaco. Or, il y a un an, c'est Marilyn qui a été approchée pour être l'élue. Elle a simplement répondu : « Monaco ? C'est où, ça ? » Elle a failli vivre l'histoire du « Prince et la Danseuse », en vrai. Bientôt, le destin va lui offrir une deuxième chance, un deuxième prince : JFK. Elle rêvera de devenir première dame. A l'époque, pas question d'être la « first girl-friend ».

Le plus étonnant, c'est que le film de Laurence Olivier, s'il est fade et mou, n'existe que par la présence de Marilyn. Les orages, les angoisses, l'amertume, rien ne transparaît : Marilyn est lumineuse, parfois un peu rêveuse, mais si sexy, si touchante, on ne voit qu'elle. Le « plus grand acteur du monde », à côté, est aussi sensuel qu'un ravier à margarine. Il a de la prestance, de l'allure, du style, mais il est déplacé. Il voudrait être Cary Grant, il n'est que l'ombre de sa manchette. Marilyn va bientôt tourner son chef-d'oeuvre absolu : « Certains l'aiment chaud ». C'est là que Tony Curtis, exaspéré, déclarera : « Embrasser Marilyn, c'est comme embrasser Hitler », comparaison discutable mais pittoresque. Surtout, l'espoir de fonder un foyer va fondre comme un glacier sous réchauffement climatique. Déjà, Arthur Miller s'éloigne. Le jour de leur mariage, il a offert à sa fiancée un bracelet en or. Avec ces mots : « A à M, juin 1956. Maintenant et à jamais. »

Le bonheur ? Jamais.

Chaque semaine, l'éditeur des écrits et dessins de la star - mandaté par la famille Strasberg - nous offre un document rare. Aujourd'hui, une lettre inédite à Lee Strasberg

Durant les premiers mois de 1956, Marilyn Monroe, désormais new-yorkaise, quitte sa nouvelle ville d'adoption pour se rendre sur le tournage de « Bus Stop ». Elle rentre d'abord à Hollywood, après plus d'un an d'absence, puis se rend à Phoenix (Arizona) et à Sun Valley (Idaho), avant de revenir à Los Angeles où elle réside au luxueux hôtel Chateau Marmont, sur Sunset Boulevard (elle y retrouve Arthur Miller, pour des amours encore clandestines à ce moment-là). Le réalisateur de « Bus Stop », Joshua Logan, était incertain au départ sur le choix de Marilyn et s'était renseigné auprès de Lee Strasberg, qui l'avait chaleureusement recommandée, convaincu de l'énorme talent d'actrice de celle que les studios de Hollywood s'efforçaient d'enfermer dans un rôle de blonde sexy et superficielle. Elle tenait ainsi l'occasion de démontrer son talent, avec un beau rôle complexe, dirigée par un cinéaste de talent.

Quatorze mois plus tôt, en décembre 1954, alors que le monde du cinéma la reconnaissait enfin comme une star en l'honorant d'un grand dîner de gala après les énormes succès, coup sur coup, de « Niagara », « Les hommes préfèrent les blondes » et « Comment épouser un millionnaire », elle avait quitté la Côte Ouest pour se rendre à New York, à la fois pour y fonder une société de production cinématographique (avec le photographe Milton Greene) et pour suivre les cours de Lee Strasberg à l'Actors Studio. La décision de ce déplacement est vertigineuse, et exceptionnelle : aucune star n'a jamais renoncé à l'éclat de la gloire pour aller se perfectionner sur les bancs d'une école, fût-elle hautement prestigieuse.

Ce choix, au demeurant, ne manque pas de cohérence. En effet, la formation de Marilyn au métier de comédienne s'est toujours faite sous les auspices du grand maître russe, Stanislavski. Ce choix est dû au départ à un certain hasard, lorsque la Columbia donne comme coach à sa starlette Natasha Lytess, formée à cette tendance de l'art dramatique. Cela relève ensuite d'une vraie décision, quand Marilyn va suivre l'enseignement de Michael Tchekhov, le neveu d'Anton, lui aussi apôtre de Stanislavski. Et c'est donc en bonne logique que Marilyn se rend à New York auprès de Lee Strasberg, un des fondateurs de l'Actors Studio, dont la « méthode » consiste à se fondre totalement dans le personnage, à s'imprégner de ses goûts, de ses réflexes, de sa façon de vivre et de sentir (en complément, Lee Strasberg encourageait ses étudiants à entreprendre une psychanalyse, ce que fit Marilyn dès les premiers mois de 1955). De fait, le génie de Marilyn tenait à ce qu'elle ne jouait pas, mais qu'elle était - à l'écran comme sur les photos. Dans son livre « Tu vois, je n'ai pas oublié », Montand ne dit pas autre chose : « Marilyn était un être d'exception dans la mesure où c'était sa lumière intérieure qui lapropulsait à l'avant-scène, devant les projecteurs. Si tu crois en Dieu, tu peux dire que c'est Dieu seul qui produit une lumière pareille, une lumière que ne maîtrise pas celui qu'elle habite… Marilyn soufrait de ne pas être une actrice reconnue, mais ce n'était pas véritablement une actrice : elle se situait bien au-delà du jeu. »

Dans les coulisses de « Bus Stop » se joue un petit drame. Natasha Lytess n'est plus là, elle a été évincée par Paula Strasberg, la femme de Lee, qui sera le coach de studio de Marilyn jusqu'à la fin, au grand dam parfois de célèbres réalisateurs (George Cukor, John Huston) supportant mal cette double commande où le commentaire sur les scènes tournées et la nécessité de les refaire ou non appartenait davantage à Paula qu'à eux-mêmes.

Ce qui est sûr, c'est que Lee Strasberg a joué un rôle déterminant dans la vie et la carrière de Marilyn. Il a d'emblée cru en elle, qu'il considérait comme une nouvelle Duse, promise à une étincelante carrière sur les planches. Il avait compris que ses peurs et sa fragilité devaient devenir sa force, et que seules la technique et la discipline pourraient lui permettre d'exprimer son fragile équilibre au bord de l'abîme. Marilyn se sentait enfin comprise.

Ce brouillon de lettre sur papier à en-tête du Chateau Marmont aurait dû figurer dans « Fragments ». Il se trouve simplement qu'il était classé par erreur dans les courriers reçus par Marilyn (des archives qui feront l'objet d'un gros volume à paraître en automne 2013 aux éditions du Seuil), et n'a été découvert que quelques mois après la publication des écrits intimes. Il m'a paru qu'en cette date anniversaire il était légitime de faire paraître le texte dans « le Nouvel Observateur », qui avait consacré sa couverture à Marilyn lors de la sortie de « Fragments », en octobre 2010, ce qui permettra à chacun de glisser les deux pages ici présentes dans le livre, comme un précieux complément. Je suis, à titre personnel, évidemment touché par cette lettre où Marilyn se compare à « un poisson hors de l'eau » (ce qu'elle était en effet, perdue parmi la foule des cyniques), le titre d'un de mes romans…

La lettre de Marilyn à Lee Strasberg

Cher Lee,

Si je n'avais pas trouvé le moyen de me mettre au travail je serais (comme je l'ai toujours été depuis que j'ai une conscience) un poisson hors de l'eau - agitée et rêvant (à des choses impalpables auxquelles je n'ai pas accès) et cent fois plus nerveuse, et totalement désespérée. Je reste mal organisée - mais j'entrevois même légèrement mes responsabilités pour moi-même et pour les autres qui m'ont aidée et même ceux qui m'ont abîmée et qui sont tous mes autres moi-même, dans ce que j'endure, ce que par miracle je parviens à faire. Mais Lee, pourquoi est-ce que ça doit être si douloureux ? sauf que j'éprouve plus fortement que jamais à quel point l'être humain est dans la survie.

J'essaye d'être même plus sociable que je l'ai jamais été mais les gens semblent prendre cela à tort pour une sorte de [mot manquant] et pour une faiblesse revendiquée qui et comme les poulets - qui donnent des coups de bec à ceux qui sont malades et s'affaiblissent - jusqu'à ce que je sente que je vais tout lâcher et mourir - par leur faute et surtout par la mienne - je suis certaine que tout ceci semble absurde - mais je vous remercie de votre patience. Et de laisser Paula à mes côtés - elle m'aide - même parfois elle a la bonne idée - ainsi je peux parler avec elle et parfois avoir l'espoir de m'identifier à sa présence féminine et chaleureuse alors que toutes les autres personnes avec qui je parle se mettent à penser que je débloque et leur grande inquiétude - semble me terrifier - la crainte qu'ils aient raison avec leur inquiétude.

Merci, merci, merci de m'aider à sauver ma vie.

Peut-être que je ne serai jamais capable de faire ce que je veux faire - mais au moins j'ai de l'espoir. Je ne sais pas comment je joue - je sais juste que je peux rester concentrée, au moins une partie du temps - et que les exercices que j'ai appris en cours peuvent toujours marcher à condition que je les convoque franchement.

Merci.

Amitié

M

Mon amitié à Suzie et Johnnie
