Lot 89002: A Marilyn Monroe Signed Black and White Photograph, Circa 1953.
An original print with a glossy finish, depicting the star in one of her well-known cheesecake publicity poses, signed in green fountain pen ink on the center right side "To Dick, / It's a pleasure to work with / you. / Marilyn Monroe" -- 'Dick' being bit-part actor Dick Ryan who worked in Hollywood from the 1940s to the 1980s; consigned directly by Ryan's family. (Please note the inscription is somewhat faded but it looks like the ink was probably running out as MM was signing it.)
2018-04-lot89002-a 


Lot 89003: A Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio Signed Menu from Their Honeymoon, 1954.
From the famous Trader Vic's restaurant in Honolulu where the couple ate dinner during their quick stop while en route to Japan and Korea, signed in blue ballpoint ink on an interior page "The food was wonderful / Marilyn Monroe DiMaggio" and "Lefty O'Doul" [one of DiMaggio's baseball buddies who accompanied them on their trip]; further signed in the same ink on another page of the menu "Joe DiMaggio."

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.)

Lot 89005: A Marilyn Monroe Group of Rare Black and White Photographs, Circa 1947.
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.)

Clin d'oeil à Marilyn dans "La Vie rêvée de Walter Mitty"

Les clins d'oeils à Marilyn au Cinéma

   - The Secret Life of Walter Mitty  -

Dans le film "La Vie rêvée de Walter Mitty", le personnage principal Walter Mitty (Ben Stiller) est employé au service de négatifs du magazine Life. Sur son lieu de travail (d'ailleurs, plusieurs scènes ont été tournées dans le hall du magazine Life, qui appartient aujourd'hui au magazine Time), on découvre sur les murs plusieurs affiches grand format de couvertures "fictives" du magazine, dont une montrant Marilyn en gros plan -une photographie d'Alfred Eisenstaedt, photographe de Life.

 secret_life_of_walter_mitty Film: La Vie rêvée de Walter Mitty
Année: 2013
Pays: USA
Réalisateur: Ben Stiller
Scénario: Steve Conrad d'après la nouvelle de James Thurber
Genre: comédie
Distribution: Ben Stiller (Walter Mitty), Kristen Wiig (Cheryl Melhoff), Shirley MacLaine (Edna Mitty), Adam Scott (Ted Hendricks), Kathryn Hahn (Odessa Mitty), Sean Penn (Sean O'Connell) ...
L'histoire: Walter Mitty travaille au service négatifs du magazine Life. Timide et rêveur, il s'imagine être le héros d'aventures imaginaires pour s’évader de sa réalité stressante. Il est attiré par Cheryl Melhoff, une collègue et il tente de l'approcher via un site de rencontre en ligne. Le jour de son anniversaire, il reçoit au journal la pellicule de Sean O'Connell, un photographe renommé. La pellicule est accompagnée d'un cadeau pour lui: un portefeuille. Sean recommande la photo du négatif n° 25 pour la couverture du magazine à venir, dernier numéro papier avant le passage au tout numérique. Étrangement, le négatif en question manque sur la pellicule. Walter décide de retrouver Sean pour savoir où est passé le négatif. Il demande l'aide de Cheryl dans sa quête et, guidé par les autres photographies de la pellicule, part pour le Groenland où il apprend que Sean est parti pour l'Islande photographier le volcan Eyjafjallajökull. Il arrive en Islande à bord d'un chalutier et perd la trace du photographe après avoir échappé à l'éruption du volcan. Rentré aux États-Unis, il est renvoyé du magazine, en partie pour avoir perdu le précieux négatif. Dépité, il retrouve néanmoins la piste de Sean, qui serait en Afghanistan. Il s'y rend, gravit le plus haut sommet du pays, le Nowshak, et retrouve Sean qui lui révèle que le négatif est dans le portefeuille qu'il lui a offert. Rentré aux États-Unis, Walter retrouve le négatif qu'il remet à ses anciens collègues, sans le regarder. Il finit par inviter Cheryl à un spectacle et découvre finalement la couverture lors de la parution du magazine: une photographie de lui-même en train d'observer des négatifs devant les locaux du magazine, accompagné du sous-titre «dernier numéro, dédié aux gens qui l'ont rendu possible».

LIFE: The Loves of Marilyn

The Loves of Marilyn
Authors: Life

Relié 112 pages
Language English
Editeur: Life

Description: LIFE was in its heyday in the 1950's and 60's, when Marilyn was at the peak of her fame. In ten years (between 1952 and 1962) LIFE put her on the cover six times. Had she lived, she might well have challenged Liz Taylor's supremacy and her close connection to LIFE magazine.
Central to Marilyn's mystique has always been her love life - filled with rumors, romantic entanglements and multiple marriages, all before she died prematurly at the age of 36. Within its pages, LIFE captured everything from her flirtations with co-stars to her genuine affection for her husbands to her tragic divorces. All three of her marriages (two famously to Joe DiMaggio and Arthur Miller), ended in divorce, and she was rumored to have multiple affairs, including one with JFK.
From famous pictures such as Marilyn singing "Happy Birthday Mr. President" to John F. Kennedy to lesser known shots such as those from her divorce proceedings with Joe DiMaggio, this book will feature both iconic and rare photography and provide fans of Marilyn with a definitive summary of her many romances.
