Lot 1032: MARILYN MONROE SOMETHING'S GOT TO GIVE DRESS 
A Marilyn Monroe worn dress from her final film, Something's Got to Give (20th Century Fox, 1962). The figure-hugging silk crepe dress is printed with scattered painterly roses in shades of persimmon and deep cherry with a plunging V back. The interior of the studio constructed dress has hand finished details, is lined with ivory souffle, and has boning to the waistline. Jean Louis was the costume designer on the film. Monroe wore this dress when her character, who was proclaimed dead and returns from being stranded on an island for five years, is introduced in the film and reunited with her children, who do not realize she is their mother. Monroe was fired from the film, and while the studio tried to replace her with Lee Remick, the film's leading man, Dean Martin, refused to finish the film without Monroe. Monroe's untimely death came less than a month after she was let go from the production.
In 1989, raw footage of the uncompleted movie was discovered in 20th Century Fox’s film vault by the producers of Fox Entertainment News, who edited 37 minutes of the film, featured in the FEN documentary Marilyn: Something’s Got to Give (Fox Network, 1990). The edited footage was later re-purposed in AMC’s 2001 documentary Marilyn Monroe: The Final Days (Prometheus Entertainment), which aired on what would have been Monroe’s 75th birthday.

Expo Marilyn Die Starke Monroe du 26/03 au 01/11/2015

expo-the_strength-1

Cette exposition de la collection de Ted Stampfler est une reprise de l'expo de 2014 Private Marilyn qui avait eu lieu en Suisse. Il y est présenté cette fois-ci près de 400 objets personnels ayant appartenu à Marilyn Monroe au Liechtenstein (entre la Suisse et l'Autriche).
L’exposition se penche sur la question de l’émancipation de la femme dans les années 50 à l’exemple de la femme la plus photographiée du XXe siècle: l’actrice, chanteuse et icône de la mode Marilyn Monroe. Elle présente la forte personnalité de cette femme exceptionnelle qui, 53 ans après sa mort, n’a rien perdu de la fascination qu’elle suscite et dont l’influence sur la société est encore perceptible aujourd’hui.
Le Musée national du Liechtenstein présente 400 objets qui proviennent initialement de sa succession et font actuellement partie de la collection privée Ted Stampfer, la plus grande collection de ce genre regroupant des objets ayant appartenu à Marilyn Monroe.
On peut y voir des vêtements luxueux, des accessoires personnels, des produits de beauté et de coiffure, des accessoires de cinéma, des documents privés, des films et des photos dont la présentation, dans cette constellation, est une première mondiale. Des objets prêtés par des collectionneurs du monde entier viennent compléter cette collection.
Les visiteurs plongent dans le monde de Marilyn et traversent chronologiquement les stades les plus importants de son évolution et les périodes déterminantes de sa vie. Ils découvrent des objets uniques qui témoignent de la vie et de l’œuvre de cette femme exceptionnelle tout en révélant son identité de femme émancipée. Pour cela, l’exposition s’intéresse aussi bien à l’évolution physique de Marilyn et au rôle qu’elle fait jouer à son corps, qu’à la manière très personnelle dont elle se rebelle contre une industrie cinématographique dominée par les hommes. Grâce à sa hardiesse, elle obtiendra entre autres de meilleures conditions contractuelles et des droits de codécision, mais pourra aussi fonder sa propre société de production cinématographique, ce qui lui assurera une plus grande indépendance.
Un catalogue éponyme accompagnant l’exposition est en vente dans la boutique du musée au prix de 20.00 CHF, ainsi que différentes autres publications.
Directeur général: Directeur Prof. Dr. Rainer Vollkommer
Administrateur et collectionneur: Ted Stampfer

> article de l'expo sur PR Newswire :
The special exhibition presents the emancipation of women in the 1950s through the example of the most photographed woman of the 20th century -- the actress, singer and style icon, Marilyn Monroe.
The exhibition here focuses on the strength behind the exceptional phenomenon who, even 53 years after her death in 1962, has not lost her charm and influence, which in society and the women's movement to this day is palpable.
Presented are more than 400 selected pieces from the private collection of Ted Stampfer, the world's largest collection of Marilyn Monroe originals of its kind. Through his willingness to present his collection in exhibitions, the art collector and expert wants not only to remember the actress, who was intellectually underestimated during her lifetime and reduced by filmmakers and media to her visual appeal, but also to make exhibit attendees aware of the clever and ambitious businesswoman. Most of the pieces originate from her estate, of which the items were stored after Marilyn Monroe's death in August 1962, until 1999, until large portions of it were put up for auction with auction houses like Christie's and Julien's. The exhibition is rounded out by individual pieces from other international collectors.
Uniquely designed and seen for the first time worldwide, the National Museum in Liechtenstein thus enables its exhibition visitors to dive into Monroe's world. Visitors walk through the most important chronological development stages of her life, and can view special exhibits that not only give a glimpse into her life and the work of this extraordinary woman, but also highlight her emancipated side. These include: high-quality articles of clothing; accessories; beauty, skincare and styling products; personal and film company documents; film props; and extensive photo and film footage presented by means of electronic media.
The exhibition, however, is not just focused on presenting personal belongings from a late actress. Rather, it focuses more on the unknown private person -- the real face behind the Hollywood icon. Thus, it gives an intimate look at the real person behind the fictional persona Marilyn Monroe. Using examples, visitors learn about an ambitious woman of the 1940s and 1950s, who, despite the prevailing gender roles of her time, reached her own set goals gradually and with great confidence.
Adressed is on the one hand, the outward makeover of a natural brunette girl, who became with the conscious use of her body the most desirable woman in the world. This is, for example, demonstrated with the original false eyelashes, various containers of makeup, articles and accessories used as highlights for her hair styling, which were significantly involved in the transformation process. But also Marilyn's favorite clothing is presented, including her white and checkered capri pants, which she liked to combine with a black turtleneck sweater. She wore them both in her private life as well as in important photo shoots (for example in the famous shoots with photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt and Milton Greene). These iconic photographs today show us not only a timeless beauty, but a self-confident woman, who was well aware of her own charisma.
In addition, the exhibition also highlights the public person and reports about the strong side of a woman who had to compete in a man's world in the 1950s. There are character traits and self-confident behavior demonstrated, which culminated at the height of Monroe's career to rebel against the male-dominated film industry. This courageous behavior led to, among other things, better contract terms and the ability to have more say over her career, plus to establishing her own film production company -- another way she became more independent. The exhibition presents original costumes, film props and important documents on the films that were produced by Monroe herself.
Besides the interest in her own career and her personal advancement, Marilyn Monroe was also involved in helping the disadvantaged and minorities. This is illustrated with the example of Ella Fitzgerald, the famous African-American jazz singer, for whom Monroe actively campaigned to obtain engagements in a hip nightclub that was typically reserved for white artists. Fitzgerald later reported that Monroe's influence and active action were instrumental in her international success as a singer.
The exhibition offers in all its aspects a comprehensive view of the strong-willed character of a woman who was ahead of her time. And it also reveals to the visitor that Marilyn Monroe, by her behavior in different ways, exerted a formative influence on the emancipation of women, making her one of the most important cultural and historical figures of the 20th century.

Photographies


lot 981: MARILYN MONROE INSCRIBED PHOTOGRAPH
A photograph of Marilyn Monroe mounted to board and inscribed on the board “Oh George,/ You’re a genius!/ Marilyn Monroe.” The black and white image was taken by Cecil Beaton and said to be Monroe’s favorite image of herself.
The consignor relates that in the late 1950s he attended an event at Frank Sinatra’s Palm Springs home as a guest of Sammy Davis Jr. The consignor remembers the photograph being given by Monroe, who was also a guest of Sinatra’s, to Davis’ valet, whom he named as “George.” This is a possible inaccuracy and may have been given to Frank Sinatra’s longtime valet, George Jacobs. The consignor was given the image by the valet George, who said he could not take the item back to Los Angeles. The consignor has had the photograph in his possession since that time.

Blouse kaki et Jupe noire de Bus Stop

Khaki Lace Top and Black Skirt from 'Bus Stop'
Blouse kaki et Jupe noire de 'Bus Stop'

 bus_stop-blouse_skirt-1 

Beaucoup ont longtemps pensé que la tenue avait été conçue par le créateur et couturier de la 20th Century Fox, William "Billy" Travilla pour le film Bus Stop (Arrêt d'Autobus) tourné au printemps 1956. Cependant, il semblerait que Marilyn avait refusé les costumes de Travilla pour le film, qu'elle considérait bien trop beaux pour son rôle de Cherie, une chanteuse paumée d'un petit cabaret miteux, excepté le body de danseuse qu'elle porte quand elle chante "That old Black Magic" qui serait bien une création de Travilla pour le film; et qu'elle avait alors emprunté au département costumes de la Fox les autres tenues qu'elle porte dans le film. Or, on découvre -à tort- le nom de Travilla comme étant le créateur de cette tenue (blouse et jupe) pour les photographies des tests costumes qu'elle a fait le 3 février 1956

 La Blouse

bus_stop-blouse-1 

Le chemisier - blouse est de couleur vert kaki, doublé d'un tissu en dentelles noires transparent, qui dessine des motifs géométriques. Les manches sont courtes, et chacune d'elle est resserrée par une cocarde verte qui se noue, tout comme au décolleté, resserré par un cordon vert, que Marilyn a noué en corcarde et laisse pendre les extrémités.

> Le 15 avril 1956, Marilyn Monroe pose dans les décors de la Fox, pour des portraits publicitaires sous l'objectif de Milton Greene; elle porte la blouse de "Bus Stop" dans la séance nommée "Hooker Sitting", mais la jupe est différente (dans le film, c'est une jupe droite à gros boutons, alors que pour la séance 'Hooker', elle porte une jupe plissée évasée et ouverte jusqu'en haut):

> La blouse n'est pas une création pour le film "Bus Stop" et Marilyn l'a bien emprunté au département costumes des studios de la Fox. En effet, la blouse est portée par l'actrice Susan Hayward dans le film "With a song in my heart" ("Un refrain dans mon coeur") réalisé par Walter Lang et sorti sur les écrans américains le 4 avril 1952, et c'est le couturier Charles Le Maire qui était chargé de la création des tenues de ce film.

mm_dress-bus_stop-susan_hayward-1952-with_a_song  mm_dress-bus_stop-susan_hayward-charles_lemaire_gown 

> Après le tournage de "Bus Stop", la blouse fut donnée au magazine Picture Show and Film Pictorial et a été gagnée par l'une de ses lectrices lors d'un concours.

>> Par la suite, la blouse fut vendue au enchères: d'abord, en 1988, par Sotheby's où c'est la sosie de Marilyn, Kay Kent, qui défila dans l'assistance en portant la blouse, qui fut rachetée par un homme d'affaire, Patrick Mills, pour la somme de 12 600 dollars, qui l'avait achetée pour sa fille de 16 ans qui souhaitait faire carrière au cinéma et dans la musique (voir l'article sur apnewsarchive.com):

>> Video "Blouse Auction 1988"
 

>> La blouse et la jupe se retrouvent encore aux enchères les 13 et 14 mars 2000, aux "Butterfields Auctioneers"sur Sunset Blvd à Hollywood. le costume de 'Bus Stop' étant estimé entre 15 000 et 25 000 $ (la robe de 'River of No Return' entre 30 000 et 50 000 $, et celle de 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes' entre 15 000 et 25 000 $).

>> Puis la blouse a changé à nouveau de propriétaire; elle appartient aujourd'hui à David Roberts qui l'a prêtée pour l'exposition consacrée à Marilyn Monroe et organisée à Jersey en 2009:

Inspirations

> L'actrice Jayne Mansfield porte une robe noire lors de son voyage promotionnel en Europe en 1957 dont le buste de la robe est fortement inspiré par la blouse: tissu noir en dentelles, au même décolleté. Photographies de Jayne prises le 26 juin 1957 à l'hôtel Dorchester de Londres en Angleterre; puis en France; et enfin, le 5 octobre 1957 à Frankfurt en Allemagne:

> La chanteuse et actrice Madonna copie des photos célèbres de Marilyn Monroe pour l'édition "Vanity Fair" d'avril 1991, sous l'objectif de Steven Meisel. Et pour cette séance, elle reprend la pose de la séance "Hooker" de Marilyn:

  La jupe

 bus_stop-jupe-1

C'est une longue jupe noire droite et très près du corps, voire même moulante. Elle dessine littéralement les courbes de Marilyn. D'un tissu satiné, elle comporte huit gros boutons noirs sur le devant, et elle est fendue dans le bas. Marilyn la porte avec une ceinture noire, dont la boucle est aussi noire.

> On retrouve la jupe trois ans plus tard, portée par l'actrice d'origine suédoise May Britt dans le film "The Blue Angel" ("L'ange bleu") réalisé par Edward Dmytryk et sorti sur les écrans américains le 4 septembre 1959; l'actrice la porte non boutonnée, afin que la jupe soit fendue jusqu'en haut, pour accentuer le côté sexy de la tenue:

Pale Turquoise Silk Suit - de Niagara

Pale Turquoise Silk Suit
from 'Niagara' 

tailleur en soie de couleur turquoise pâle
porté dans le film 'Niagara'

tailleur_bleu_1952_05_21_a 

tailleur_bleu_1952_05_21_bCet ensemble tailleur jupe veste a été conçu par la célèbre costumière de cinéma, Dorothy Jeakins pour le film Niagara tourné l'été 1952 à la frontière canadienne. Dorothy Jeakins s'occupa de tous les costumes du film. Marilyn Monroe fit les essais de test costumes le 21 mai 1952 (voir photo ci-contre).
C'est une tenue moderne et classique à la fois, très près du corps, à la veste cintrée et dont la jupe, longue, dessine parfaitement les courbes de Marilyn. Elle porte la tenue avec des sandales ouvertes blanches.
Il semblerait qu'elle ne porte pas de chemisier sous la veste, mais peut-être est-elle en soutien-gorge ou a-t-elle un fin corsage ?!

Dans Niagara, Marilyn porte ce tailleur dans une courte scène où son personnage Rose Loomis, femme fatale énigmatique, sort de son bungalow et salue ses voisins, les époux Cutler. On ne la voit donc avec cette tenue que brièvement, marchant d'un pas alerte et déterminé.
Il existe une série de photographies de Marilyn prises sur le tournage portant ce tailleur, où on la découvre consciensieuse et concentrée auprès de Jean Peters, révisant ses scènes. Puis, elle va aussi poser pour des portraits publicitaires du film, assise sur un muret devant les fameuses chutes du Niagara.

Marilyn va ensuite emprunter la robe, pour la porter le 26 juin 1952 à la cour de justice de Los Angeles, dans un procès qui l'opposait à Kaupman et Kaplen, qui avait utilisé son nom pour vendre des photos de nus.

Le tailleur avait ensuite été récupéré (racheté sans doute à un petit prix) par l'actrice Debbie Reynolds, qui organisa, le 3 décembre 2011, une vente aux enchères où elle revendait une grande partie de sa collection d'objets et de costumes de cinéma.
Le tailleur, mis à prix à 80 000 Dollars, fut vendu pour la somme de 210 000 Dollars.
