L'Europeo mars 1962

1962_March_goldenglobe_Mag_Leuropeo_cover_1Le magazine italien L'Europeo de mars 1962 avait choisit de mettre Marilyn Monroe à sa Une, et de lui consacrer un long article (de 6 pages) qui dévoilait sa liaison avec le réalisateur mexicain Jose Bolanos, en publiant les photographies de la cérémonie des Golden Globes où Marilyn fut couronnée d'un prix remis par Rock Hudson le 5 mars 1962, et où elle était accompagnée -pour l'occasion- de Bolanos.

Décembre 1945 Pub pour la Compagnie Douglas

ADV_1946_DOUGLASAIRVIEW_011_COVER_FOR1STCLASS_1ALa toute première couverture de magazine de Marilyn Monroe est celle du Douglas Airview (une compagnie d'avion) datée de janvier 1946, publié par Douglas Aircraft, Volume 13, No.1. et contenant 24 pages.
Marilyn apparaît aussi à l'intérieur du magazine (où elle pose en combinaison de nuit pour promouvoir le nouvel avion DC-6 dans un article intitulé "Sky Luxury Showroom"), et d'autres clichés publicitaires seront publiés dans des numéros ultérieurs du magazine de la compagnie plus tard durant cette année là.
Les prises de vues de ces clichés eurent lieu à
Santa Monica en décembre 1945 par Larry Kronquist.
The very first Marilyn Monroe magazine cover is that one of Douglas Airview (an aircraft company) dated in January 1946, published by Douglas Aircraft, Volume 13, No.1. and containing 24 pages.
Marilyn also appears inside the magazine (where she poses in a nightie to promote the new DC-6 aircraft in an article titled "Sky Luxury Showroom"), and other publicity shots will be published in subsequent issues of the company's magazine later during that year.
The shooting of these pictures took place in Santa Monica in December 1945 by Larry Kronquist.
 

ADV_1946_DOUGLASAIRVIEW_010_IN1946_04_08_FROMTIMEMAG_1Certains clichés furent aussi publiés dans d'autres magazines,
comme cette page publicitaire provenant du Time Magazine du 8 avril 1946.
Et en moins d'un an, Norma Jean -future Marilyn Monroe- fera la couverture de 33 magazines nationaux américains.
Some pictures were also published in other magazines,
as this advertising page from Time Magazine in April, 8, 1946.
And in less than a year, Norma Jean - future Marilyn Monroe- will be on cover of 33 US national magazines.
 

D'après Clark Kidder, un collectionneur de Marilyn, qui publia le livre "Marilyn Memorabilia" - qui est une sorte de guide d'identification concernant tous les produits dérivés et autres objets de collection se rapportant à Marilyn Monroe avec leurs valeurs monétaires, publié chez Krause Publications, Iola, Wis.-:
"...le (magazine) Playboy est plutôt facile à trouver, mais le premier magazine où Marilyn en fit la couverture était le premier numéro du Douglas Airview de janvier 1946, un journal interne pour la company industrielle d'aviation Douglas. Ici, Marilyn et trois autres modèles posent par deux couples, vieux et jeune, savourant l'intérieur spacieux du nouvel avion DC-6. (...) Bien que la photo déserve le modèle (Marilyn étant vêtue d'une manière très conservatrice et à moitié cachée dans son siège à côté de son partenaire en premier plan), le magazine fut vendu à une enchère en ligne (ebay pour pas le citer) pour 2100 $."
According to Clark Kidder, a Marilyn's collector, who published the book "Marilyn Memorabilia" - which is a kind of a field guide on all derivatives and other collectibles related to Marilyn Monroe with their monetary values, published from Krause Publications, Iola, Wis.-:
"... the (magazine) Playboy is rather easy to find, but the first magazine where Marilyn was on the cover was the first number of  Douglas Airview in 1946, January , an internal newspaper for the industrial company of Douglas aviation. Here, Marilyn and three other models pose by two couples, old and young, enjoying the spacious interior of the new aircraft DC-6. (...) Although the photo deserve the model (Marilyn is wearing a very conservative and half hidden in her seat next to her partner in the foreground), the magazine was sold in an online auction (ebay) for $ 2,100. "

Movieland mai 1951

movieland_1951may_janetleighLe magazine américain Movieland de mai 1951 consacrait un long article de 4 pages et demie à Marilyn Monroe - source scans : Ceux qu'emma aime

Intitulé "Lessons i've learned in Hollywood" (en français: "Les leçons que j'ai tiré d'Hollywood"), l'article montre comment Marilyn réussit par elle-même à se faire une place dans le monde déjà impitoyable du cinéma hollywoodien, malgré sa timidité, ses peurs et doutes. Après l'évocation brève de son enfance "d'orpheline ballotée de familles d'acceuil", l'article décrit ses débuts de galères et de manque d'argent (l'empêchant même de s'habiller) en s'appuyant sur la persévérance de la jeune actrice.

mag_movieland_1952_04_p68 mag_movieland_1952_04_p69 mag_movieland_1952_04_p83

Extraits citations de Marilyn qui étayent l'article (et traduction):
* "I had vague notions about the motion picture business, of course, but I wasted my first Hollywood break because I was too shy to ask necessary questions. Now I realize you can't find out too much about any business."
"Bien sûr que j'avais de vagues notions sur les activités de films de cinéma, mais j'ai gâché ma première chance à Hollywood parce que j'étais trop timide pour poser les questions essentielles. Maitenant je me rend compte que vous ne pouvez jamais en savoir de trop sur aucune activité."

* "Then a Hollywood dress shop persuaded me to open a charge account. When I lost my first contract I got behind in payments and they hounded me so that I'll never do that again ! Today I won't buy anything I can't pay for with money I've already have guaranteed coming in. My most foolish splurge was on an elaborate records player. I had to give that up, too, when I couldn't keep up the payments. My first car was retrieved by a finance company for the same reason. They snatched it off the street after dark so I thought it was stolen and complained to the police about my theft. There's nothing like humiliation to make you stop and think. Today I have a little record-player, nowhere near as nice as the one I once ordered at first sight, but at least it's paid for. I have my own car now, too. It isn't a Cadillac, but it has a gay vizor above its windshield and it's all mine."
"Et là une boutique de vêtements de Hollywood me persuada d'ouvrir un compte chez eux. Lorsque je perdis mon premier contrat, je ne pouvais plus régler ma facture et ils m'ont poursuivi si bien que je ne ferais plus jamais ça! Aujourd'hui, je n'achèterai plus jamais rien si je ne peux pas le payer avec de l'argent que je possède déjà. Ma folie la plus idiote, fut pour un tourne-disque rare. J'ai dû y renoncer aussi, quand je ne pouvais plus continuer le remboursement. Ma première voiture fut récupérée par une société de finance pour la même raison. Ils l'ont fait enlever de la rue à la tombée de la nuit, j'ai donc pensé qu'elle avait été volée et alla me plaindre à la police pour ce vol. Il n'y a rien de plus humiliant que de vous forcer à vous arrêter et de réfléchir. Aujourd'hui, j'ai un petit tourne-disque, qui à première vue est loin d'être aussi bien que celui que j'avais commandé, mais au moins je l'ai payé. J'ai aussi ma propre voiture aussi maintenant. Ce n'est pas une cadillac, mais elle a un rétroviseur de couleur vive au dessus du pare-brise et tout m'appartient."

* "I don't live in fear anymore. That's the essence of how I have changed as the result of my mistakes. I was afraid to talk about what I wanted because I'd been laughed at and scorned when I'd seemed ambitious. You can't develop necessary self-confidence unless you express yourself, and even after I got to Hollywood, I was afraid that if I did so, I'd be conspicuous."
"Je ne vis plus du tout dans la peur. C'est l'essentiel du comment j'ai changé qui résulte de mes erreurs. J'avais peur de dire ce que je voulais parce que j'avais été moquée et dédaignée quand je me montrais ambitieuse. Vous ne pouvez pas développer une confiance en soi à moins que vous vous exprimez, et même après que je sois arrivée à Hollywood, j'avais peur que si je le ferais, je serais remarquée."

* "Then I was terribly lucky in meeting a man who became not only my agent, but my dearest friend. When I first mentionned my acting hopes to Johnny Hyde, he didn't smile. He listened raptly and said 'of course you can become an actress!'. He was the first person who ever took my ambitions seriously and my gratitude for this alone is endless. Most men I'd known thought all I cared about was clothes and parties. The truth is I've never been much of a party-goer because I was so shy in a group I'd barely open my mouth. 'Say what you believe' Johnny told me. 'You are an individual, just like anyone else. You have a right to your opinion. If you don't know something, say so!'"
"Puis j'ai été terriblement chanceuse en rencontrant un homme qui devint non seulement mon agent, mais mon plus cher ami. Lorsque la première fois, je fis mention de mes espérances d'actrices à Johnny Hyde, il n'a pas souri. Il écouta attentivement et dit 'bien sûr tu peux devenir une actrice!'. Il fut la première personne qui prit mes ambitions au sérieux et rien que pour ça, ma gratitude est infinie. Bon nombre d'hommes que j'ai connu pensaient que tout ce qui me préoccupait était les vêtements et les fêtes. La vérité, c'est que j'ai n'ai jamais vraiment été une adepte des fêtes parce que j'étais trop timide au milieu d'un groupe, j'ouvrais à peine la bouche. 'Dis ce que tu penses' me disait Johnny. 'Tu es un individu à part entière, comme n'importe qui d'autre. Tu as le droit d'avoir ton opinion. Si tu ne sais pas quelquechose, dis-le donc!'"

* "It was Johnny too, who started me reading. Now I have to restrain myself from buying out Pickwick's Book Store on Hollywood Boulevard! There's a beautiful set of Michel-Angelo's paintings reproduced in book form I'd like to own as soon as I can. I'd also like to own all the Beethoven recordings. Johnny not only gave me self-confidence but he showed me how to make the most of my time. I'd been used to dilly-dallying around when I had no work call. Maybe I'd sleep a little longer. Maybe I'd have a long breakfast. Or I'd make lengthy phone calls to kill time. Johnny kept advising me to use every available moment to better myself. 'Think each situation through. Study!' he said. Suddenly, it no longer seemed an effort to wake up and plunge headlong into work. I found I was less misunderstood when I spoke up and explained myself, instead of avoiding a meeting of minds. 'There is nothing to be afraid of!' Johnny repeated. He also told me ponctuality. I was unconscious of timeless. Circumstances always used to come up to make me late, now I arrange things so they don't and it's fun to be dependable and known as a person who always keeps her word."
"Ce fut Johnny aussi qui commenca à me faire lire. Désormais je dois me restreindre d'aller acheter à la boutique de livres Pickwick sur Hollywood Boulevard! Il y a un superbe livre qui regroupe les oeuvres complètes des peintures de Michel-Ange que j'aimerai avoir dès qu'il m'en sera possible. J'aimerai aussi avoir tous les enregistrements de Beethoven. Johnny me donna non seulement confiance en moi, mais il me montra comment occuper mon temps libre. J'aurais eu l'habitude de traînasser quand je n'avais pas de travail. Peut être j'aurais pu dormir un peu plus. Peut être je pourrais prendre un long déjeuner. Ou j'aurais pu téléphoner longuement pour tuer le temps. Johnny me donna le conseil d'utiliser chacun de mes moments disponibles pour m'améliorer. 'Réfléchis bien à chaque situation. Etudies!' disait-il. Soudainement, ça ne semblait plus être un effort de se lever et de plonger la tête dans le travail. Je trouvais que j'étais moins incomprise quand je prenais la parole et m'expliquais, plutôt que de fuir une communion de pensées. 'Il n'y a rien d'effrayant!' répétait Johnny. Il m'enseigna aussi la ponctualité. J'étais inconsciente de la temporalité. Les circonstances sont toujours apparues habituellement à me faire mettre en retard, maintenant, j'arrange les choses avant et c'est sympa d'être digne de confiance et connue pour être une personne qui tient parole."

Article Photography Mag - Earl Wilson Report 1954

Article du magazine Photography Mag en juin 1954 portant sur un reportage photos illustrant une interview de Marilyn par Earl Wilson.

Retranscription -incomplète- de l'article

Broadway columnist Earl Wilson is kind of a nice guy. He knows and loves show people, and has a special spot in his heart for the kids with the brassy hair, the brassy stare and the anxious expression that means they're not eating too well or too often. Marilyn Monroe used to be one of those kids and when she hit the top in just a few long strides, Earl was genuinely happy for her. But he knew that stardom can change people and wondered if the bright lights were dazzling the world's loveliest pin-up girl, so on a trip to Hollywood he went to see her, taking along his favorite camera and, as always, his beautiful and clever wife. Both Wilsons were completely surprised. This was indeed a new Marilyn. The frightened kid was gone. Here was a serene and confident woman. Earl was pleased to note that the famous Monroe curves were more gorgeous and curvy than ever. But what impressed him most was the good, practical sense taht's inside of that lovely, golden head. Marilyn told her old friend all about her dreams for Marilyn Monroe Productions, Inc and pretty soon they were involved in a thoroughly complicated chat about incorporation, investments, production problems and what-not. Poor Earl's head was fairly spinning as he tried to keep up with the conversation - and at the same time believe this was really Marilyn Monroe spouting all this business talk. She had him so confused and fascinated that he almost forget to pull out his camera and ask for some exclusive shots. Marilyn sighed, pulled off her glasses, dropped her expression of intense concentration and pretty soon Earl was snapping happily away as a droppy-eyed sex siren lounged in front of his camera. We're lucky enough to have the pictures (aren't they luscious ones?) along with Earl's personal report of his session with The Monroe.

Article Screen World - May 1954

Article du magazine Screen World de mai 1954, Marilyn Monroe est alors en plein tournage du film River of no return (La Rivière sans retour) au Canada; elle s'est fracturée la jambe pendant les scènes de cascade; elle porte alors un plâtre et se trouve en congé (arrêt maladie). Elle en profite donc pour visiter la région montagneuse, faisant un tour en canöé, visitant les roches du Banff et des réserves indiennes.

Retranscription de l'article

SHE MAKES THE MOUNTAINS WHISTLE
When M-M-M-Marilyn showed up at glorious Banff for some movie-making, old timers noticed a new note in the air ... could it be that our girl makes even the ancient mountains give with a wolf whistle? ...
Marilyn Monroe has never exactly claimed to be the outdoor type. That's why she was a trifle skeptical when her director ordered her up to the Canadian Rockies for the shooting of 20th Century Fox's "River of No Return". What does a city girl do admidst all that wild, primitive beauty ? Well - first thing this city gal did was tear a ligament in her lovely ankle while gamely trying to wade across a madly rushing river. Marilyn was shipped back to the luxurious hotel at Banff, looking more fetching than ever. There she proved to be tough competition for the famous Banff scenery, with tourists training their cameras at Marilyn instead of the mountains. Luckiest tourists there were the ones with movie cameras -'cause till you've seen the famous Monroe wiggle enhanced by having to be performed on one foot, you ain't seen nothin'. Gave good-natured Marilyn some hearty laughs - and photographers some shots they'll treasure.

Légendes des photos

(légende photo 1)- p.26
Marilyn makes with the big pout to indicate her dissatisfaction with the crutches-plastercast situation that's holdin up shooting on her new picture.

(légende photo 2)- p.27
But this girl is no pouter - at least not for long. From accross the hotel's pool comes a shout of greeting from a new friend, and she's all smiles.

(légende photo 3)- p.27
Handsome swimming instructor Wolfgang Karbe comes up to offer his sympathy, finds the glamorous star ready to joke about her accident.

(légende photo 4)- p.27
Marilyn decided not to let her bad ankle interfere with seeing the sights. First step: a visit to the stables and a chat with a Mountie.

(légende photo 5)- p.27
Here's one spot where not being able to walk is no handicap ! Marilyn decided now is the time to learn to paddle her own canoe.

(légende photo 6)- p.28
Like every Banff visiter, Marilyn was breathless with the thrilling view from the chair lift that carries tourists to dizzy heights.

(légende photo 7)- p.28
The curiously shaped pine ans spruce free entrance sign to the Banff makes a perfect background for the not so curiously shaped Monroe.

(légende photo 8)- p.28
While Marilyn took pictures of the mountain scenery, everybody else was taking pictures of Marilyn. But she's used to this sort of thing.

(légende photo 9)- p.29
Just as Marilyn hit this pose, a car drove by with some new visitors. Darned near went out of control as Poppa dived for his camera.

(légende photo 10)- p.29
Next part of call on the visiting list is the Indian Trading Post where Marilyn marveled at the displays, fell in love with this bear.

Une du Daily Mirror - du Mercredi 8 août 1962

press_daily_mirror1962_08_08_article_1

DAILY MIRROR

THIS IS THE LAST PICTURE
Here it is - the last picture taken of Marilyn Monroe ... she posed for it on a beach near her Hollywood home only a few days before she died.
The sun was going down. It was becomming chilly, Marilyn pulled on a thick knitted sweater, draped a blanket over her knees, and posed for a final picture.
She pursued her lips and blew a kiss at the cameraman.
"OK, George", said Marilyn, "and it's just for you".
George ? He is american writer and photograpgher George Barris. He flew to London yesterday with this picture and the intimate story of Marilyn's last days.

Talked
She had asked Barris to write her biography and to illustrate it. She had posed for him; she had talked to him for ten weeks about her past and the future...
She talked more freely and frankly than she had ever talked to anyone before.
Last night, After five hours in London, George Barris flew back to Hollywood for Marilyn's funeral today.
A coroner's inquiry is trying to discover whether or not she died by accident after taking sleeping pills. And yesterday police who are piecing together clues to Marilyn's final hours made an important dicovery.
They now know that the last phone call Marilyn received on the night of her death come from 20-year-old Joe Dimaggio, Joe son by a previous marriage of her second husband.
Barris says: "I am sure Marilyn did not take her life deliberately. She would not have worked so hard with me on the story of her life had she intended to take it.
"She still had a lot to live for, and I know she fekt that, too."
