Lot 0952: PERSONAL HANDWRITTEN ACTORS STUDIO CLASS NOTES
A sheet of Marilyn Monroe's personal notes from her acting classes with Lee Strasberg at the Actors Studio in New York, NY, handwritten in pencil on stationery from The Towers of The Waldorf-Astoria in 1955 (Monroe took Actors Studio classes with Strasberg between April and September 1955).
The opening salutation and start of the letter "Dear Art" has been scratched out. The notes begin with Monroe quoting something said by Strasberg: "I want you all to know that this exercise went on for/ 1/2 hour and her concentration did not/ give way or slip once-and Marilyn there/ will be very few times ever on the/ stage where it will be/ necessary to keep/ such a concentration/ for one half hour/ straight." Monroe then asks herself, "Why did it/ mean so much to me."
On the back she continues to ruminate about class, writing, "Strasberg/ it makes me (him he said) feel badly (and sadly) for you that you do/ things out of fear/ You must start to do things out of strength-/ (my question: where do I get the strength)-he said-by not looking for strength/but only looking & seeking tecnical [sic] ways and means."
This presents a fascinating demonstration of how seriously Monroe took her formal acting training in New York.
This document was reproduced in the book Fragments: Poems, Intimate Notes, Letters by Marilyn Monroe, Edited by Stanley Buchthal and Bernard Comment (Farrar, Straus, and Giroux, New York, 2010).

Lot 0953: HANDWRITTEN ACTING EXERCISE DIALOGUE AND NOTES
A single sheet of lined yellow paper with dialogue and additional notes written out in pencil in Monroe's hand. This document was likely part of an acting exercise.
The dialogue reads:
"Where did he go? He told you I know he did/ If you'd only have given me a little longer - He was in love with me - we'd have been married you didn't want me to have him from the beginning/ you wouldn't let me wear those pretty things/ Even when I told you about the doll - you/ sent those people around/ He died! But he said/ he came back - Tell/ Me - tell me -."
The front and back of the page is then covered with small performance notes, including:
"The thought focus on partner not on word then let go of word"; "don't do with words & voice"; "Let go everything elastic keep the pick up lay on the horse"; and "to be as relaxed let go of mouth speech thought," among many others.

14/01/1945 - Lettre de Norma Jeane à Grace Goddard

Lettre de 4 pages du 14 janvier 1945 (datée par erreur en 1944) écrite par Norma Jeane Dougherty (Marilyn Monroe) à Grace McKee Goddard, qui était partie vivre avec son mari Ervin 'Doc' Goddard et la fille de celui-ci Bebe Goddard à Huntington, dans l'Etat de Virginie.
Norma Jeane n'a que 18 ans, mariée depuis deux ans et demie avec Jim Dougherty souvent absent (il est engagé dans la Marine marchande), et elle se sent seule: sans doute est-ce pour cette raison qu'elle s'est payée un manteau, alors qu'elle ne gagne pas beaucoup d'argent. Elle fait aussi des cadeaux à Grace puisqu'elle lui demande si le peignoir est à sa taille.
Elle raconte aussi à Grace que l'usine où elle travaille, Radioplane, a congédié (temporairement, pour deux semaines), l'ensemble des ouvriers et ouvrières (sans leur verser de salaire), certains étant même licensié définitivement.
Elle parle de son retour de l'Est, faisant ainsi référence à sa visite aux Goddard (Doc et Bebe) en Virginie et sa demie-soeur Berniece à Détroit à l'automne 1944.
Il semble que Norma Jeane porte beaucoup d'affection envers Doc Goddard, elle l'appelle "Papa" dans sa lettre.
On ressent surtout l'isolement de la jeune Norma Jeane, terminant sa lettre par son espoir de revoir les Goddard revenir en Californie.

Letter of 4 pages in January 14, 1945 (mistakenly dated 1944) written by Norma Jeane Dougherty (Marilyn Monroe) to Grace McKee Goddard, who had gone to live with her husband Ervin 'Doc' Goddard and his daughter Bebe Goddard in Huntington, Virginia.
Norma Jeane is only 18 years old, married for two and a half years to Jim Dougherty, who is often absent (he is engaged in the Merchant Marine), and she feels alone: ​​no doubt this is why she paid for a coat, although she doesn't earn much money. She also gives Grace gifts because she asks her if the robe is at the good size.
She also tells to Grace that the factory where she works, Radioplane, has dismissed (temporarily, for two weeks), all the workers (without paying them a salary), some of them being even definitively dismissed.
She talks about her return from the East, thus referring to her visit to the Goddards (Doc and Bebe) in Virginia and her half-sister Berniece in Detroit in the fall of 1944.
It seems that Norma Jeane has a lot of affection for Doc Goddard, she calls him "Dad" in her letter.
We especially feel the isolation of young Norma Jeane, ending her letter with her hope of seeing the Goddards back in California.

 Traduction de la lettre:

Ma très chère Grace,
Je suis désolée de ne pas avoir écrit plus tôt, mais honnêtement, j'ai été très occupée. En ce moment, j'ai deux semaines de vacances. (sans être payée).
Jimmie n'est pas encore rentré mais s'attend à être à la maison à tout moment. Il m'a envoyé 100 $ pour Noël alors j'en ai mis un peu plus et je suis maintenant l'heureuse propriétaire d'un manteau de singe Gold Coast. Oh c'est tout simplement magnifique ! J'ai obtenu la meilleure qualité possible parce que je pensais que je pourrais aussi bien obtenir quelque chose qui durerait. (Je ne veux pas que tout le monde sache que ça a coûté autant que ça le devait au départ, c'est mon affaire, tu ne crois pas ?
Tout le monde dit qu'ils ne peuvent pas comprendre à quel point j'ai changé depuis que je suis revenue de l'Est. Au travail, ils disent tous que je suis pleine de vie, de peps et de vitalité. Je n'ai pas travaillé très dur, je me suis juste laissé aller, mais j'ai quand même terminé tout mon travail. Radioplane Company a licencié près de la moitié de ses travailleurs. Mais je suis toujours là bien que je sois en vacances maintenant, comme tout le monde dans mon département, ce n'est que pour deux semaines.
S'il te plaît envoie-moi le livre d'anglais et de grammaire, tu avais dit que tu le ferais.
J'espère que tu as aimé ton peignoir. Était-ce la bonne taille ? As-tu mis des chaussons pour aller avec ?
Je suis contente que tu ne travailles pas chez Wildings parce que tu travaillais juste trop dur. J'espère que tu te reposes beaucoup. S'il te plaît, donne mon affection à Papa et Bebe. Vous me manquez certainement tous.
Dan Hill est vraiment génial, je n'ai pas eu beaucoup de temps pour le voir. Mais je l'aime beaucoup.
J'ai hâte de voir Papa en février. Chaque fois que je vois Dan, il n'arrête pas de demander "Quand est-ce que "Doc" revient ?"
Aujourd'hui, je suis allée à l'église et Mme Dougherty m'a accompagnée. Mon Dieu, je peux à peine attendre que vous reveniez tous ici, j'espère que ce sera bientôt.
Tout mon amour,
Norma Jeane,
PS j'écrirai plus tard

Letter transcription:

My dearest Grace,
I'm sorry I havn't written sooner but honestly I've been so busy. At the present time I'm having a two weeks vacation. (without pay).
Jimmie hasn't come home yet but expects to be home most any time. He sent me $100.00 for Christmas so I put some more with it and I am now the happy owner of a Gold Coast monkey coat. Oh its simply beautiful! I got the finest quality obtainable because I thought I might as well get something that would last. (I don't want everyone to know that it cost as much as it did in the first place its my own business, don't you think ?
Everyone says they can't get over how much I've changed since I've come back from the East. At work they all say I'm full of life, pep and vitality. I havn't been working very hard, just sort of taking it easy but I still get all of my work finished. Radioplane Company laxed almost half of its workers off. But I'm still there although I'm Having a vacation now so is everyone in my dept, its only for two weeks.
Please send me the English and Grammar book, you said you would.
I hope you liked your robe. Was it the right size? Did you get slippers to go with it ?
I'm glad you are not working at wildings because you were just working too hard. I hope you are getting a lot of rest.
Please give Daddy and Bebe my love. I certainly do miss all of you.
Dan Hill is really swell, I havn't had much time to see him. But I do like him very much.
I can hardly wait to see Daddy in February. Every time I see Dan he keeps asking "When is "Doc" coming back ?"
Today I went to church and Mrs. Dougherty went with me.
Golly I can hardly wait until all of you move back here, I hope it will be soon.
All my love,
Norma Jeane,
P.S. I shall write later

Ma précieuse fille,

Tu es en route vers un joyeux voyage. Que chaque instant de ses joyeuses attentes soit comblé à ras bord.
De nouveaux lieux, visages et expériences t'attendent.
Tu rencontrera tout cela avec ta douceur habituelle et ton aimable courtoisie.
Lorsque tu verras ta sœur, vous recevrez vraiment toutes les deux une bénédiction. Donnes-lui mon amour et un baiser, aussi à la chère petite fille.
Mon amour aussi au père et au mari chanceux.
Mon bonheur est grand que vous ayez un repos nécessaire. Et belle visite avec mes proches.
Embrasse Bebe pour moi aussi.
Une des joies du départ est le retour, où tous ceux qui vous aiment (et qui ne ne t'aime pas ?) nous attendent à bras ouverts pour nous recevoir.
Ma prière sera - Cher Père, tu es mon enfant, en ascension, ce soir et toujours.
Les lignes suivantes t'aideront à connaître une protection à tout moment.
"Je sais
Là où je suis
C'est Dieu. Puisque c'est ainsi
Aucun endroit ne peut être plus sûr que là où je vais"
Bonne nuit ma chérie
Avec amour et baisers
Tante Anne

25/09/1938 - Lettre de Oncle Art à Norma Jeane

Lettre dactylographiée datée du 25 septembre 1938, sur du papier à lettres à en-tête "International Correspondence Schools", écrite par  "Oncle Art" à Norma Jeane, âgée alors de 12 ans et vivait chez "Tante" Ana Lower (sur Nebraska Avenue, à Los Angeles).
Oncle Art et Tante Allis vivent à San José, en Californie. Ils semblent appartenir à la famille de Grace Goddard et de sa tante, Ana Lower; ils se surnomment eux-mêmes "Oncle" et "Tante" pour Norma Jeane, et semblent bien la connaître par les mots d'affection employés dans la lettre. Ils font référence à leur chien Trinket, dont on peut supposer qu'il est adoré par Norma Jeane.

Typed letter dated September 25, 1938, on "International Correspondence Schools" letterhead, written by "Uncle Art" to Norma Jeane, then 12 years old and living with "Aunt" Ana Lower (on Nebraska Avenue , in Los Angeles).
Uncle Art and Aunt Allis live in San Jose, California. They appear to be relatives of Grace Goddard and her aunt, Ana Lower; they call themselves "Uncle" and "Aunt" for Norma Jeane, and seem to know her well by the words of affection employed in the letter. They refer to their dog Trinket, whom one may assume was adored by Norma Jeane.

Traduction de la lettre:

Notre douce Norma Jean :

Je t'ai promis une lettre, et j'essaie toujours de tenir mes promesses. Etre très attentif à tenir sa promesse est nécessaire à la construction d'un bon caractère, ne penses-tu pas ? Cependant, dans ce cas, tenir ma promesse procure un réel plaisir plutôt que l'accomplissement d'un devoir. V

Tu as appris par nos lettres à tante Ana notre voyage ici et notre nouvelle maison. Nous sommes tous les deux en bonne santé et de bonne humeur, et très heureux de tout. Dieu a été très bon avec nous, et Il en sera ainsi. Trinket a plus de peps que je ne l'ai jamais vue démontrer et est très satisfaite de tout. Il y a un beau parc en diagonale au coin de chez nous où elle peut se défouler sur l'herbe fraîche et verte à sa guise. Elle fait de nombreuses promenades, et il y a des gâteaux pour chiens spéciaux pour elle.

Hier matin, nous sommes allés à San Francisco et, après une conférence avec mes associés, nous avons traversé le pont de la baie de San Francisco. Chérie, c'est la plus grosse chose que j'ai jamais vue à côté de ton oncle Doc Goddard. C'était une belle journée claire et depuis le pont, nous pouvions voir le Golden Gate, la prison fédérale sur l'île d'Alcastraz où sont détenus les prisonniers gouvernementaux les plus difficiles, l'université d'État de Berkeley et toutes les villes autour de la baie de San Francisco. Nous pourrions contempler le parc des expositions du monde - ils l'appellent l'île au trésor - et certains des bâtiments sont déjà terminés. La foire aura lieu l'année prochaine, tu sais. Et c'est l'un des voyages où nous voulons t'emmener avec tante Ana si vous venez nous rendre visite l'année prochaine. Vous apprécierez tout cela, j'en suis sûr.

C'est une belle ville de 85 000 habitants. Ce matin, dimanche, nous sommes allés en voiture dans le quartier où résident les riches - le district de Hester, je pense que c'est ainsi que ta tante Allis l'appelait. Mais même les pauvres ici gardent leurs jardins propres, remplis de pelouse verte et de fleurs. Le pays environnant est le plus beau, les collines sont parsemées de chênes, et dans les vallées, il y a des miles ou des vergers et des fermes maraîchères. Nous sommes ravis de tout.

Maintenant, ma chère, écris-nous et dis-nous comment tu te débrouilles à l'école, et comment tout se passe là-bas. Je suis sûr que tu es heureuse parce que tout le monde là-bas t'aime et veut que tu sois heureux.

Tante Allis se joint à moi dans l'amour et les meilleurs vœux.

Affectueusement vôtre,
Oncle Art

Letter transcription:

Our Sweet Norma Jean:

I promised you a letter, and I always try to keep my promises. To be very careful to keep one's promise is necessary to the building of a good character, don't you think so ? However, in this case, keeping my promise provides real pleasure rather than the performance of a duty.

You have learned from our letters to Aunt Ana of our trip up here, and of our new home. We are both in fine health and spirits, and very happy over everything. God has been very good to us, and He will let Him. Trinket has more pep than I ever saw her demonstrate, and is highly pleased over everything. There is a beautiful park diagonally across the corner from where we live where she can romp over the cool, green grass to her heart's content. She is having many rides, and that is special dog cakes to her.

Yesterday morning we went to San Francisco, and after a conference with my business associates we drove over the San Francisco Bay bridge. Honey, that's the dangdest, biggest thing I ever saw next to your Uncle Doc Goddard. It was a beautiful, clear day, and from the bridge we could see the Golden Gate, The federal prison on Alcastras Island where they keep the thoughest government prisoners, the State University at Berkeley, and all the cities around San Francisco Bay. We could look right down upon the world's Fair grounds - they call it Treasure Island - and some of the buildings are already finished. The fair will be held next year, you know. And this is one of the trips we want to take you and Aunt Ana on if you come to visit us next year. You will enjoy it all, I am sure.

This is a beautiful city of 85,000 population. This morning, Sunday, we drove out into the section where the wealthy reside - the Hester District, I think your Aunt Allis called it. But even the poor up here keep their yards neat and filled with green lawn and flowers. The surrounding country is most beautiful, the rolling hills are dotted with oak trees, and in the valleys are miles or orchards and truck farms. We are delighted with everything.

Now, Dear, write and tell us how you are getting along in school, and how everything is going down there. I am sure you are happy bevause everyone there loves you, and wants you to be happy.

Aunt Allis joins me in love and best wishes.

Fondly Yours,
Uncle Art


Oncle Art écrira d'autres lettres à Norma Jeane pendant l'année 1939 dans lesquelles il l'appelle "Petite chérie" et "Nous envoyons tous de l'amour à notre petite fille." Ces correspondances pleines de tendresse montre que malgré les difficultés liées à son enfance sans parents, Norma Jeane était tout de même entourée de personnes attentionnés, soucieux de son bien être.

Uncle Art will write other letters to Norma Jeane during the year 1939 in which he calls her "Little Sweetheart" and "We all send love to our little girl"These correspondences full of tenderness show that despite the difficulties related to her childhood without parents, Norma Jeane was still surrounded by caring people, concerned about her well-being.

Traduction de la lettre:
Jeudi.
Ma très chère Cathy,
merci pour ton petit mot doux, et pourquoi bien sûr je t'aime beaucoup ma chère, tu le sais. Si je semble parfois un peu négligente, c'est parce que je suis tellement occupée que je ne semble pas avoir le temps de rattraper ma correspondance, mais je promets qu'après cela, je ferai mieux, honnêtement je le ferai.
Jimmie est arrivé il y a environ trois semaines et tu peux imaginer à quel point j'étais ravie. Je souhaite seulement qu'il n'ait pas à repartir.
Jimmie et moi sommes allés à Big Bear Lake pendant une semaine et nous nous sommes bien amusés. J'espère que toi et Bud serez bientôt là parce que j'aimerais que vous le rencontriez tous les deux.
J'ai pris congé de Radioplane. Je te raconterai tout quand je te verrai chérie ou je t'écrirai plus tard. J'ai tellement de choses à faire que je ferais mieux de terminer pour l'instant mais j'écrirai bientôt.
Dis bonjour à Bud pour moi.
Avec amour,
Norma Jeane. 

Letter transcription:
Thursday.
My dearest Cathy,
thank you for your sweet little note, why of course I like you dear very much, you know that. If I seem a little neglectful at times its because I'm so busy I don't seem to have any time to catch up on my correspondence, but I promise after this, I shall, do better, honestly I will.
Jimmie arrived about three weeks ago and you can imagine how thrilled I was. I only wish he didn't have to go back.
Jimmie and I went up to Big Bear Lake for a week and had a grand time I hope you and Bud will be down soon because I would love for you both to meet him.
I've been on leave of absence from Radioplane. I shall tell you all about it when I see you honey or I shall write to you later. I have so many things I have to do so I had better close for now but I shall write soon.
Tell Bud Hello for me.
Love,
Norma Jeane.

26/05/1947, Lettre de Len Cormier à Marilyn

Lettre datée du 26 mai 1947, écrite par Len Cormier à Marilyn Monroe, à son adresse de "11348 Nebraska Avenue, West Los Angeles, California"; lettre de 5 pages en recto, sur du papier à lettres "SkyMail", postée de Sydney, en Australie, où se trouve Cormier.
Len Cormier était un jeune pilote de la Marine qui est sorti quelques temps avec Marilyn en 1946. Ils ont eu au moins deux rendez-vous: un où ils ont dansé au Tommy Dorsey's Casino Gardens à Santa Monica (en 1946), et un autre où il l'a emmenée voler dans son avion (le seul civil qu'il n'ait jamais embarqué dans un avion, se souviendra-t-il plus tard).

Dans sa lettre du camp d'entraînement, il écrit: "Je dois admettre que je ne garde pas ta photo avec moi tout le temps, car personne ne travaillerait si c'était le cas." Il raconte ses expériences avec les opérations aériennes et les voyages, et termine sa lettre par un message réfléchi sur la carrière de Marilyn: "Je croise toujours les doigts, en espérant que toutes les perçées du monde viennent à toi."

Letter dated May 26, 1947, written by Len Cormier to Marilyn Monroe, at her address of "11348 Nebraska Avenue, West Los Angeles, California"; 5-page letter recto, on "SkyMail" stationery, posted from Sydney, Australia, where Cormier is located.
Len Cormier was a young Navy pilot who dated Marilyn for a while in 1946. They had at least two dates: one where they danced at Tommy Dorsey's Casino Gardens in Santa Monica (in 1946), and one another where he took her flying in his plane (the only civilian he ever took up in plane, he later recalled).

In his letter from training camp, he writes, "I'll have to admit that I don't leave your picture out all the time, since nobody would get any work done if it were." He relays his experiences with flight operations and traveling, and ends his letter with a thoughtful message to his career-oriented friend: "I've still got my fingers crossed, hoping that all the breaks in the world come to you."

1947-05-26-letter_len_cormier_to_norma_jeane-1 

Traduction de la 1ère page:
Chère Marilyn,
Peut-être que tu ne m'as pas cru quand je t'ai dit à quel point j'étais lent à écrire - mais tu es probablement convaincue maintenant.
Même s'il y avait une faible excuse (n'était pas sûr de l'adresse). Je suis vraiment désolé.
Quelle grande nouvelle concernant ton dernier casting - bon - j'espère. Ce ne sera qu'une question de temps avec toi de toute façon - mais ce sera un bon essai. (C'est beaucoup d'entraînement pour appeler cela un essai, n'est-ce pas ?)
Je dois admettre que je ne laisse pas ta photo à côté de moi tout le temps, car personne ne travaillerait si c'était le cas. Chaque fois que quelqu'un la voit, c'est parti pour quelques sifflets bas et une salve de questions.

1st page transcript:
Dear Marilyn,
Maybe you didn't believe me when I told you how slow I was about writing - but you're probably convinced now. Even though there was a feeble excuse (wasn't sure of the address). I am very sorry.
What's the big news about your last test - good - I hope. It will just be a matter of time with you either way - but it will be a nice shortcut. (That's a lot of training to call a shortcut, isn't it ?)
I'll have to admit that I d'ont leave your picture out all of time, since nobody would get any work done if it were. Everytime everyone sees it, it's good for a couple of low whistles and a salvo of questions.

10/07/1958 - Télégramme de Sydney Chaplin

Télégramme de Sydney Chaplin (fils de Charlie Chaplin) envoyé à Marilyn Monroe le 10 juillet 1958; Sydney Chaplin connaît Marilyn depuis la fin des années 1940s, il la sollicite pour obtenir un petit rôle dans le film "Certains l'aiment chaud" qu'elle va commencer à tourner en août:
"C'était vraiment agréable d'entendre à nouveau ta voix / Dans mon livre, tu es toujours la même personne merveilleuse que tu as toujours été / Les choses ont été lentes dans le cinéma pour moi / Je suis sûr que quelques mots pour Billy Wilder de vous m'aidera à être dans le film en tant que l'un des hommes de la mafia de George Rafts / S'il vous plaît Marilyn faites cela pour moi car vous savez que je livrerai en ce qui concerne mon talent / Si j'obtiens une entrevue avec M. Wilder je suis sûr qu'il m'utilisera comme une faveur personnelle pour vous / J'essaierai de revenir sous 16 jours / Je télégrapherai encore ce soir / Je t'embrasse / Sydney. "

Telegram from Sydney Chaplin (son of Charlie Chaplin) sent to Marilyn Monroe on July 11, 1958; Sydney Chaplin knowns Marilyn since the late 1940s, he asks her to get a small part in the movie "Some like it hot" that she will start filming in August: 
"It sure was nice to hear your voice again/ In my book you are still the same wonderful person you always were/ Things have been slow in pictures for me/ I am sure a few words to Billy Wilder from you will help me get on the picture as one of George Rafts mob men/ Please Marilyn do this for me as you know I will deliver as far as my talent is concerned/ If I get an interview with Mr. Wilder I'm sure he will use me as a personal favor to you many / Will try to return by sixteenth/ Will cable again tonight definitely Love / Sydney."
