Lot 89004: A Marilyn Monroe Group of Rare Black and White Snapshots, Circa 1947.
Six total, all original prints with a glossy finish; four taken the same day and two taken other days, all showing MM in an outdoor setting either alone or with Aviv Wardimon (who later changed his last name to 'Blackman'); according to his distant relatives who consigned this lot, he was a security guard at one of the movie studios (most probably 20th Century Fox) who evidently struck up a friendship with the then-starlet as these images seem to indicate; also included is one extra black and white snapshot of Wardimon with actor John Carroll (who is wearing western garb on a movie set) -- coincidentially, Monroe was living with Carroll and his wife at this time. (Please note there is handwriting in blue ink on the verso of some and a faint typed note on another.)

Three total, all original prints with a matte finish; all showing MM in an outdoor setting next to Aviv Wardimon (who later changed his last name to 'Blackman'); according to his distant relatives who consigned this lot, he was a security guard at one of the movie studios (most probably 20th Century Fox) who evidently struck up a friendship with the then-starlet as these images seem to indicate; also included is one extra black and white photograph of Wardimon with actor John Carroll (who is wearing a period tuxedo on a movie lot) -- coincidentially, Monroe was living with Carroll and his wife at this time. (Please note there is handwriting in blue or black ink or typed text on the verso of some; there is a small tear on the bottom margin of one; and sadly all were shot somewhat blurry.)

Lot 89001: A Marilyn Monroe Unusual Inscribed 'Frame Glass' to Arthur Miller, Circa 1960.
A black and white photograph of the star circa 1956, looking wistful, housed in a black wooden frame with the glass signed by her in red wax pencil "I know when / I am not there / for you -- !!!" with her added line marks below forming what look like "X's" or "M's" or both but hard to decipher; consigned directly by the daughters of Aaron Frosch [Monroe's attorney] who said that when their father was handling MM's divorce from Arthur Miller, she gave Frosch a number of items she didn't want anymore, including this photograph which she evidently inscribed to Miller as an apology; interestingly, MM wrote this note with a colored wax pencil, the same kind she used to cross out images of herself on contact sheets that she didn't like; also intriguing to speculate about the photograph itself: it was likely a favorite of hers or Miller's and it was probably hanging somewhere in the couple's home where MM knew Miller would see her message on it. (Please note the inscription has changed to an orangish color and it's faded due to age.)

6/11/1954 Romanoff's Party

Le 6 novembre 1954, Marilyn Monroe est l'invitée d'honneur d'une soirée organisée par son agent Charles Feldman, au restaurant Romanoff's à Beverly Hills, afin de marquer la fin du tournage de The Seven Year Itch (Sept ans de réflexion). Pour représenter le film, l'acteur Tom Ewell et le réalisateur Billy Wilder sont présents. Et de nombreuses personnalités, stars du cinéma et producteurs influents, sont invités: Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, James Stewart, Doris Day, Susan Hayward, Gary Cooper, Clifton Web, Darryl Zanuck, Jack Warner, Sidney Skolsky, Groucho Marx, Loretta Young... mais surtout, l'idole de Marilyn, l'acteur Clark Gable. Il s'agit de leur première rencontre et Marilyn danse avec celui qu'elle imaginait enfant, être son père ! Elle lui demande même un autographe.
Photographies prises par Sam Shaw et Jean Howard.

Radieuse dans une robe de velour rouge au décolleté prononcé, les ongles vernis de rouge et un fourreau blanc sur les épaules, Marilyn était bien la plus belle de la soirée.

Un carton publicitaire représentant Marilyn dans la robe blanche du film était disposé sur chacune des tables des invités. Une carte photographique de Marilyn circula de table en table et les invités la dédicacèrent. Marilyn garda cette carte toute sa vie. Elle fut vendue à la grande vente chez Chritie's en 1999.

4/11/1953 Première How to marry a millionaire

1953_11_04_htmam_premiere_001Le 4 novembre 1953, a lieu la première du film How to marry a millionaire (Comment épouser un milionnaire?) au Fox-Wilshire Theater à Hollywood. Le film est tourné en cinémascope couleur et l'événement est fortement médiatisé par la présence de nombreux journalistes, reporters et photographes; ainsi qu'une foule de badaux qui sont sur place. De nombreuses personnalités assistent à la première: Debbie Reynolds, Mitzi Gaynor, Rock Hudson, Shelley Winters. Les participants au film arrivent en voiture seul ou par deux: le réalisateur Jean Negulesco est accompagné de sa femme; Lauren Bacall est aux bras d'Humphrey Boggart; puis le scénariste Nunnally Johnson avec Marilyn Monroe. Ils posent avec plaisir pour les photographes et Marilyn se montre plus que jamais disponible autant envers les journalistes, répondant aux micros des reporters, mais aussi des photographes en posant longuement, que du public composé d'anonymes, en signant des autographes. Très en beauté, Marilyn porte la même robe en dentelle blanche que lors de son show tv en septembre au Jack Benny Show.
Nunnally Johnson se souvient d'une soirée plutôt désopilante: "Dès son arrivée chez nous (chez Johnson et sa femme), Marilyn demande un bourbon-soda. Puis, alors que pourtant nous devions dîner tôt et légèrement, elle en demande un autre. Elle était à la fois surexcitée et très angoissée à la perspective de cette soirée. Je ne la savais pas à ce point naïve et spontanée; et je fus stupéfait de voir l'importance qu'elle accordait à cette première: pour elle, c'en était presque insupportable. Nous nous préparons à monter dans la voiture -une limousine louée, avec chauffeur- et elle demande un troisième verre, sans soda cette fois. Gentlemen jusqu'au bout, Boggart et moi bûmes avec elle pendant le trajet. Il n'y avait pas trio plus aimable que nous dans tout l'Etat de Californie quand nous fîmes notre entrée dans le théâtre (...). Pour tout dire, elle était complètement paf. Au moment même où le film commençait, il a fallu qu'elle aille aux toilettes. Ma femme l'a accompagnée car il était clair que Marilyn avait besoin d'aide. Ronde comme elle était dans une robe ultra étroite, qu'elle s'était faite coudre sur elle. Ce n'a pas été rien, je vous assure (ma femme m'a raconté la scène après), de lui faire faire pipi, puis de la remettre dans un état convenable pour qu'elle retourne à sa place. Quand on se fait coudre dans sa robe, on ne devrait jamais trop boire."

Après la première au théâtre, une grande soirée est organisée chez le réalisateur Jean Negulesco, où participent entre autres, Mitzi Gaynor et Robert Mitchum. Marilyn confiera alors que "c'est la plus belle soirée de ma vie. C'est comme lorsque j'étais petite et que je rêvais qu'il m'arrivait des choses merveilleuses. Maintenant, elles sont arrivées."
