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.

Let's Make Love Dress

'Let's Make Love' Dress
robe du "Milliardaire"
 

1960_01_16_LML_press_043_02_1 

Robe à la ligne simple, en jersey de soie, au décolleté en forme V, qui, à partir de la taille, part en longue jupe de mousseline évasée.


La conception a été initialement attribuée à John Moore, qui en créa une version pour Marilyn de couleur rouge profond, qu'elle porta pour des portraits photos en studio: d'abord, en 1955, posant sous l'objectif de John Florea; puis, en janvier 1957, pour la dernière séance photos d'avec Milton Greene, nommée la 'Red Sitting' (séance en rouge), qui étaient destinées à être des photos publicitaires pour le film The Prince and the Showgirl (Le Prince et la Danseuse).
Marilyn adorait tellement cette robe qu'elle en recommanda une autre à Moore, la même, mais de couleur noire.

  ph_0012330 1957_01_ny_RS_red_sitting_01_1b 

La robe rouge fut vendue par Christies en 2001.
La robe noire fut vendue par Sothebys en 2001.
mm dress_Lot41a_1_ mm


La robe qu'elle porte dans le film "Let's Make Love" ("Le Milliardaire") en 1960 existe en trois versions: elles ont été créées par Jax. Marilyn se basa sur les créations de Moore et demanda à Jax d'en faire plusieurs copies. Les boutiques Jax étaient tenues et dirigées par Jack Hanson (qui en ouvrit deux au début des années 50: une à Beverly Hills et une à New York, près de l'appartement où vivait Marilyn). En 1960, Rudi Gernreich était le nouveau couturier qui travaillait pour Hanson, il est donc probable que ce soit lui qui créa les trois robes:

  • 1/ Dans le film, Marilyn porte une robe légèrement rosée, dont la longue jupe contient une graduation de nuances de rose plus foncées. Elle apparaît ainsi vêtue dans deux scènes qui s'enchaînent: l'une avec Yves Montand, et l'autre avec Frankie Vaughan où ils chantent ensemble "Incurably Romantic".

> La robe est aujourd'hui la propriété du fan et collectionneur Greg Shreiner,
qui la prête occasionnellement à des organisateurs d'expositions
(comme à l'expo 
Marilyn Remembered de 2010;
voir son site web: 
The Marilyn Monroe Site )

dress_pink_shreiner_1 dress_pink_shreiner_2 

* * * * * * * * * * * * * *

  • 2/ Puis, une version blanche au ton gris pâle, que Marilyn porta le 16 janvier 1960 pour la conférence de presse du film "Let's Make Love", et plus tard la même année, durant la période de tournage de "The Misfits": dans un casino, et le 16 octobre 1960 à un dîner avec Monty Clift.

Durant la conférence de presse, toute l'équipe du film participa à un cocktail et but du champagne. Il semble que Marilyn renversa sa coupe sur le décolleté de sa robe, tel qu'on peut le voir sur les photographies suivantes où Yves Montand désigne du doigt à Marilyn la tâche qu'a laissé le champagne sur sa robe, une tâche visible sur certaines photographies:

The clasp at the back of the bra is assumed to have been added after filming for publicity photographs where the strap would not be seen. The bra is housed in a frame with an image of Monroe in the dress. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from The Collection of Motion Picture Costume Design.

Heritage Auction 07/2012

lot n°46001: A Marilyn Monroe Signed Black and White Photograph, Circa 1956
A Marilyn Monroe Signed Black and White Photograph, Circa 1956. An original print with a matte finish, depicting the star in one of her legendary glamour poses, her blue fountain pen ink inscription on the right side reads "To Roy, / Love & Kisses and - / thanks for keeping me / out of the clink! / Marilyn Monroe." (Please note there are slight creases in all four corners, especially the lower left one, plus a few minor chips to the surface, but the overall image and signature are not affected.) 14" x 11"
PROVENANCE: The "Roy" noted above was Beverly Hills police officer, Roy Garrett, who joined the force in 1946, and who had a habit of asking movie stars to send him an autographed photograph (which most did - see various lots throughout this auction). He evidently let Marilyn go without a ticket as he received this from her in the mail a few days later.
Sold: $31,250.00

heritage-lot46001


Lot 46002: A Marilyn Monroe Signed Black and White Photograph, Circa 1955
A Marilyn Monroe Signed Black and White Photograph, Circa 1955. An original print with a matte finish, depicting the star in her most famous headshot, her white fountain pen ink inscription in the lower right corner reading "To Vern / It was a pleasure / to work with you / Love and Kisses / Marilyn Monroe;" "Vern" being Vernon Rickard, a bit player and "gofer" in the early days of Hollywood. (Please note there are many creases and wrinkles on lower margin that somewhat affect the autograph and there is a slight dent in the upper right corner.) 10" x 8"
Sold: $11,250.00

Lot 46003: A Marilyn Monroe Likely Final Signed Check, August 4, 1962
A Marilyn Monroe Likely Final Signed Check, August 4, 1962. From the star's personal checking account at City National Bank of Beverly Hills, check 281, penned in blue ballpoint ink (in another hand, possibly Eunice Murray's, MM's caretaker) reading "Aug 4 62 / Pilgrim / $228.80 / Two hundred twenty-eight and 80," signed in same ink in Marilyn's own hand "Marilyn Monroe," a red stamp on front reads "Paid / Aug 6 1962 / 901-1606," further stamps on back read in part "For Deposit Only / Pilgrim Modern Furniture" and "Santa Monica Bank.../ Aug 6 62;" included is a photocopy (not the original) of an invoice that Pilgrim's Furniture gave to MM (see below footnote). 3" x 6"
Coincidentally, two years ago, Heritage Auctions sold the original invoice that was given to Marilyn by this company [Pilgrim's Furniture then at 12217 Wilshire Boulevard in West Los Angeles] in Sale 7018, Lot 50225. That invoice was also dated August 4, 1962, so it appears that Pilgrim's made a delivery to MM's house and that she paid for her "Chest Roman white" on the spot with the above check from her personal checkbook. Interestingly, on that invoice, the evident delivery man wrote "Rec'd Check #281 in amount $228.80 / Payment in full / Earl Shero." At this point in time, this seems to be the last check Marilyn ever signed as she died that night, August 4, 1962. This check can be used to argue the point that Marilyn did not commit suicide -- would one be concerned with new furniture on the last day of one's life? Probably not!
Sold: $15,000.00

Lot 46007: A Marilyn Monroe Group of Mostly Never-Before-Seen Black and White Negatives, 1950.
A Marilyn Monroe Group of Mostly Never-Before-Seen Black and White Negatives, 1950. Thirty-three total, all originals, each depicting Marilyn at age 24 posing in a fancy backyard during one photo session; 14 show MM wearing a black turtleneck, white shorts, and black strappy sandals as she sits on a chaise lounge chair; 18 show MM wearing a light-colored bikini and same sandals as she poses by a swimming pool; and one shows MM wearing a dark-colored bikini by the same pool; two depict other people in the shot with MM, evidently the photographer's assistants. (Please note some of these negatives are somewhat dirtied and scratched, but they still print up beautifully and MM is quite clear and vibrant-looking in all the shots.)
Each Negative: 2 1/2" x 2 1/2"
These photographs of Monroe were taken on October 10, 1950 by Bob Beerman, a staff photographer at 'Modern Screen' magazine. A few of the images did appear in a 1951 issue of the magazine, though not all of them. Additionally, the current owner published seven of them online, but the majority of these photographs have never before been seen.

Meryman, Jr., on Life letterhead, dated "February 10, 1962," regarding an interview for the magazine and how MM would be able to "destroy negatives" (of photos she didn't like); months later, Meryman finally did get his interview, but sadly, it would be Marilyn's last one. 11" x 8 1/2"

Lot 46016: A Marilyn Monroe Legal Form, 1953

This is an odd document, possibly relating to MM's voice and musical coach, Hal Schaeffer, though the last name is spelled differently on this form. Schaeffer, who was having an affair with MM as she was divorcing Joe DiMaggio, unwittingly became part of the infamous 'Wrong Door Raid,' but this piece pre-dates that event by almost two years -- perhaps it relates to a different person altogether.
