Vêtements & Accessoires


 Lot 143: MARILYN MONROE WORN BLACK COLOBUS COAT
A mid-1940s black colobus coat worn by Marilyn Monroe to the 1948 film premiere of The Emperor Waltz (Paramount, 1948). The coat has broad shoulders, a cordé collar, a satin lining, and a Jerrold's Van Nuys, Calif. label. Although the black colobus is currently on the endangered species list, it was quite fashionable in the 1940s. Monroe wrote in a letter to Grace Goddard dated December 3, 1944, "I found out that its [sic] possible to buy a Gold Coast Monkey Coat. I shall write to you about it later." The coat was gifted from Monroe to Jacquita M. Rigoni (Warren), who was the great-niece to Anne Karger, mother of Monroe's voice coach, Freddie Karger. Monroe had a close relationship with the family, and the coat has remained in their possession. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Jacqui Rigoni detailing the family's relationship to Monroe and the history of the coat.
The monkey species used to make this Marilyn Monroe monkey fur coat is on the Endangered Species list. U.S. Endangered Species Act regulations required by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service impose certain regulations on the sale of this coat. Please read the following carefully:
Please read the following carefully: The Marilyn Monroe monkey fur coat may be sold to a resident of California without requiring a Federal permit. A non-California resident may bid on this coat and if he or she were the winning bidder could apply for a Federal permit to remove the coat from the state of California. Julien’s has been advised that a Federal permit would likely be REFUSED by the governing offices. It is vehemently advised that non-residents of California DO NOT bid on this Marilyn Monroe owned monkey fur coat. If you bid on this lot and are unable to obtain a permit Julien’s has no liability and will be unable to refund you for your purchase.
A California resident who purchases this coat and later moves from California to another state would not be required to obtain a permit if he or she maintained ownership of the coat when changing state of residence. However, the owner would need to make sure there are no state regulations prohibiting the transfer of the coat from one state to another.
Estimate: $20,000 - $30,000 | Winning Bid: $32,000

Lot 144: MARILYN MONROE FAN FROM THE PRINCE AND THE SHOWGIRL
A vintage lace fan used by Marilyn Monroe in the film The Prince and the Showgirl (Warner Bros., 1957). The folding hand fan is used by Monroe in the ballroom scene in the film. The frame and guard are embellished with floral motif carvings embellished with pink, blue, and gold-metallic paint. The accompanying letter from the consignor explains that the fan was gifted by Monroe to William Louis George Le Brun, known as Louis Le Brun in the film industry, who was the Chief Production Accountant for Warner Bros. in the United Kingdom. When Monroe was taken ill while filming, Le Brun, who was responsible for overseeing the distribution of all finances, which involved the insurance and wellbeing of the cast and production team, stayed by her side. As a thank-you, Monroe gave him this fan, or more specifically gave the fan to his wife as an apology for keeping Le Brun from his family. At the time the fan was received several of the fan blades were broken, presumed to be from use during filming. The fan has remained in the possession of the Le Brun family since the gift was made by Monroe.

 Lot 155: MARILYN MONROE BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S SCRIPT AND REPORT
A clean copy of the screenplay for Breakfast at Tiffany's written by George Axelrod and dated July 9, 1959. Monroe was considering the part, and she sought the opinions of her professional team including the Strasbergs, her husband, and management team. The script is accompanied by a single-page, typed "report" dated September 23, 1959, which also has the name "Parone" typed to the left of the date. Literary luminary Edward Parone was at the time running Monroe's production company and most likely is the one who wrote this single-page, scathing review of the script, leading with the simple sentence, "I think not." It goes on to criticize the screenplay, determining, "I can see Marilyn playing a part like Holly and even giving this present one all the elan it badly needs, but I don't feel she should play it: it lacks insight and warmth and reality and importance." It has been long reported that Monroe declined the part upon the advice of Lee Strasberg, but this document provides further evidence that other people in her inner circle advised her not to take the role. Together with a four-page shooting schedule for November 4, 1960, for the film.

Lot 158: MARILYN MONROE MEDICAL FILE
A medical file pertaining to cosmetic surgery performed on Marilyn Monroe. The file includes facial X-rays and doctors' notes from the office of Dr. Michael Gurdin, M.D., and the X-ray office of Drs. Conti and Steinberg. Dr. Gurdin's chart on Monroe begins on July 14, 1958, and lists the patient as Marilyn Miller with addresses in New York and Los Angeles. The chief complaint listed is "chin deformity" and goes on to give a medical history that begins in 1950 and ends in 1962. Listed are a 1956 bout of neutropenia in England; 1957 ectopic pregnancy in New York; and 1950 cartilage implant in chin that the doctor observed had slowly begun to dissolve. Those with knowledge of the implant procedure have explained that this was done in association with a tip rhinoplasty, a procedure involving the tip of Monroe's nose only, not the bones. The last entry is dated June 7, 1962, and reports a fall at between 2 and 3 a.m. resulting in swelling and tenderness of the nose. Monroe was brought to Dr. Gurdin by her psychoanalyst, Dr. Ralph Greenson. Monroe was referred to Drs. Conti and Steinberg for X-rays. For her visit to the radiologists she was given the alias "Miss Joan Newman," and that name appears on the paperwork with Monroe's Brentwood home address. Six X-rays are in the folder: a frontal facial bones X-ray; a smaller X-ray that is a composite of the right and left sides of her nasal bones; and four small dental X-rays into the roof of Monroe's mouth, looking upward toward the nasal bones. The conclusion, written by Dr. Conti and dated June 7, 1962, is that there was no damage to Monroe's nose due to her fall. A more recent evaluation of the X-rays indicates a very minute hairline fracture of this bone. Monroe had turned 36 less than a week earlier. On June 8, the following day, Monroe was fired from the film Something's Got to Give (20th Century Fox, 1962).

Lot 809: MARILYN MONROE OVERCOAT
 A Marilyn Monroe fawn colored silk overcoat with black velvet collar detail and apricot satin lining. Seven-button closure and two exterior pockets. No size or maker’s label present. Fits size 8 dress form.
Monroe’s affection for this coat is documented by many photos of her wearing it during the years 1956-1959. Some have deemed it “Marilyn’s Favorite Coat.” As a newlywed, she modeled the coat in an iconic June 30, 1956, road trip and photoshoot with her new husband, playwright Arthur Miller, to his country home in Roxbury, Connecticut. Accompanying the couple in Miller’s black ’56 T-Bird was Marilyn Monroe Productions business associate and favored photographer, Milton Greene. Other extant photos include Monroe and Miller in June 26, 1959 as they departed New York’s Lennox Hill Hospital in New York City after Monroe's hospitalization for gynecological surgery.
This coat has been on continuous exhibit since 2010 at owner’s “Marshhaven” residence, Heritage Plantation, Pawleys Island, SC. The coat has been climate and UV protected.

Lot 712: EARL MORAN (AMERICAN, 1893-1984) MARILYN MONROE NUDE
 An oil on canvas painting of Marilyn Monroe reclining nude in bed. Signed middle right “Earl Moran.”
Earl Moran was a prominent pin-up artist during the 1930s and 1940s with a stylish flair that helped sell millions of calendars for publishers Brown & Bigelow. In 1946, Moran had the good fortune of meeting an aspiring model named Norma Jeane Dougherty, soon to become famous as Marilyn Monroe. Dozens of photographs were taken of Monroe in various poses, which Moran then used to paint seductive nudes in oil and pastel, portraying Monroe as a blonde, a redhead, and even as a brunette. The painting shown here was purchased by the consignor's wife directly from Moran after they met him at the Laguna Art Festival. The consignor fondly recalls how Moran explained to them that the model for the painting was a young woman named Norma Jeane Dougherty.

Lot 738: MARILYN MONROE CAST HAND AND FOOT PRINTS
 An acrylic cast of Marilyn Monroe's hand and foot prints from Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. Monroe originally immortalized her hand and foot prints at the theatre in June 1953. This cast, made of casting grade silicone, was part of a project from the late 1970s that was supposed to preserve the prints but also was going to be used to create a limited number of the molds for sale. That project never reached fruition, and this is the only known cast prepared this way. On one side the cast looks like the original; the back shows the cast in negative relief.

When he taught at the school himself, he used these X-rays to ensure that students were paying attention. Monroe was said to have known about the X-rays and their use, about which she said, "Isn't that sweet." Monroe's hospital visit was said to be for her chronic endometriosis, or as her doctor's described it, "For correction of a female disorder she has suffered for years." Monroe was in the hospital for several days and was filmed by the press when she left the hospital.

Manteau beige en poil de chameau

Camel Hair Overcoat
manteau en poil de chameau 

 1953

C'est un manteau de la garde robe personnelle de Marilyn Monroe. Approprié pour l'hiver, il est long, en poil de chameau, de couleur beige, avec un large col, de gros boutons, ceintré à la taille par une large ceinture avec une boucle surdimensionnée. C'est un manteau classique et moderne à la fois, intemporel, et luxueux car signé Christian Dior. Marilyn le porta à diverses occasions lors de l'année 1953, jusqu'en 1954:


Marilyn porte ce manteau le 1er septembre 1953 lors de son départ du Canada (qui marque la fin du tournage des scènes extérieures du film "La rivière sans retour"): elle marche alors avec des béquilles car elle portait un bandage après s'être foulée la cheville sur le tournage du film:

Au début du mois de  septembre 1953 , Milton Greene la photographie dans les locaux du magazine Look: elle accessoirise sa tenue avec une paire de gants en dentelles noires et un foulard blanc à pois.

A new book reveals the extraordinary contents of Marilyn Monroe's private filing cabinets, thought lost for over 40 years after her death

 Photo: MARK ANDERSON

In November 2005 Millington Conroy, a businessman living in Rowland Heights, 40 miles east of Los Angeles, contacted Mark Anderson, a successful magazine photographer, to discuss an unusual commission.

He had in his possession two metal filing-cabinets, one brown, one grey, containing private papers and a collection of furs, jewellery and other assorted memorabilia, all belonging to Marilyn Monroe. Would Anderson be interested in photographing the collection?

The material – about 10,000 documents – had been thought lost for more than 40 years since the death of Monroe on the night of 4 August 1962. Now, here it was, a treasure trove, languishing in a Californian suburb.

It was the commission of a lifetime, the largest undocumented Monroe archive in existence. Yes, of course Anderson was interested, and, with the help of the biographer and Monroe aficionado Lois Banner, he set about creating a record of the archive's contents, which is now to be published for the first time as a book.

There are letters from Monroe glowing with admiration for Robert Kennedy; a half-finished love letter to her ex-husband Joe DiMaggio found in her room after she died from a drug overdose; unseen pictures of Monroe as a child and young woman; touching fan mail; rare insights into her marriage to the playwright Arthur Miller; and extensive documentation of her squabbles with the Hollywood studio Twentieth Century-Fox.


In these documents the flesh-and-blood Monroe, usually lost in the heady blaze of the images of her on film and in glamour photographs, comes alive in the flotsam and jetsam of everyday life.

We can see her bookshop receipt for The Life and Works of Sigmund Freud, volumes one, two and three (she was a slave to therapy); the newspaper cuttings, both flattering and critical; her witty little telegrams. Then there are the bills for enemas, facials and prescription drugs, the uppers and downers that in her later years carried her through the day, and eventually killed her.

Frank Sinatra, one of Monroe's lovers, is said to have suggested she buy the filing cabinets to protect her privacy when she was living in New York in 1958. In early 1962, when she moved to Brentwood, Los Angeles, she had the cabinets shipped down.

The grey one, containing private correspondence, was kept in the guest cottage at the Brentwood house; the brown one, containing business records, was stored across town in her office at Twentieth Century-Fox studios.

One account of Monroe's last night claims that she actually died in the guest cottage and was subsequently moved to her bedroom in the main house and rearranged on her bed.

What is certain is that sometime on the night of 4 August the cabinet in the guest cottage was broken into, and that crucial files were removed – perhaps pertaining to Monroe's relationship with the Kennedys and their links with the Mafia boss Sam Giancana, perhaps to her contractual arrangements with Twentieth Century-Fox.

How did these immensely valuable cabinets manage to vanish for so long only to resurface in a quiet corner of suburban California? The key to the mystery is Inez Melson, Monroe's business manager in the mid-1950s, guardian of Monroe's schizophrenic mother, and, following Monroe's death, administrator of her Los Angeles holdings.

In the days and weeks after Monroe died Melson, who received nothing in Monroe's will (the bulk of the estate and her personal effects were left to Lee and Paula Strasberg, her acting coaches), made sure the filing cabinets ended up in her possession.

She had the brown cabinet at Twentieth Century-Fox transported to her home in Hollywood Hills, and, fraudulently, using the name of one of her nephews, bought the grey cabinet for $25 at the Monroe Estate auction she herself had organised. Upon her death in 1985 Melson left her collection, including the cabinets, to her sister-in-law Ruth Conroy, who, upon her death, bequeathed it to her son Millington.

In the course of their research, it soon became apparent to Anderson and Banner that Melson had acquired the contents of her archive illegally and that Strasberg's third wife, Anna, was in fact the legal owner of the material.

'We told Mill what we had found,' writes Banner. 'Realising that his ownership of the collection could be in jeopardy, he threatened to sell it on the black market… We wanted to ensure that the [collection] remained intact and that it would eventually be shown to the public; so we informed Anna Strasberg of its existence. We were not privy to her ensuing negotiations with Mill. All we know is that, in the end, they reached a settlement.'

What is astonishing about the archive, says Banner, is quite how much material has survived, and also its quality. Amid the mass of bills, cheques, contracts and publicity shots there are insights into the most private corners of her life.

Monroe grew up effectively an orphan. She never knew her father, and her mother's illness meant Monroe spent her childhood and teenage years being passed from family to family, including a spell at the Los Angeles Orphan Home. She was left with a lifelong desire to truly belong in a family, and to bring up children of her own.

Monroe's horror at the idea of not being able to get pregnant is made starkly and rather zanily clear by a handwritten letter she taped to her stomach before having her appendix removed in 1952: 'Cut as little as possible,' it reads. 'I know it seems vain but that doesn't really come into it. The fact I'm a woman is important. You have children and you must know what it means. For God's sakes Dear Doctor no ovaries removed.'

Monroe suffered three miscarriages in the mid-1950s while married to the playwright Arthur Miller, and the archive is full of reminders of how painful that time must have been. There's a receipt for a maternity dress Miller bought, and a letter of condolence from the poet Louis Untermeyer, which sums up the paradox of her life – at once adored by millions and isolated in her suffering: 'It's grimly ironic that while the rest of the country was enjoying the comedy of your impersonations in Life [the December 1958 issue had a shoot in which Monroe spoofed the great sirens of history], you were going through your personal tragedy… Arthur's tribute was a model of good taste, artistic balance, and love. It must be an added comfort to know that everyone loves you – especially now.'

Most extraordinary is a letter she and Miller received on 24 January 1958, in the aftermath of her third miscarriage, offering them a child to adopt: 'Wonder if you might be interested in the adoption of a baby girl, that was born to an unwed mother about the same time your wife lost her child. It is a healthy and beautiful baby and the mother feels that you people would really make a good happy home for her… If you are interested you can reach me by phone.'

Would Monroe have been a good mother? Who can tell? But letters she wrote to her stepchildren, Bobby and Jane Miller, reveal a playfulness and understanding of childhood needs and disappointments that would surely have stood her in good stead.

In August 1957 we find her writing to them at summer camp in the guise of their basset hound, Hugo (she also wrote to them as their Siamese cat, Sugar Finney): 'It sure is lonesome round here! I made a mistake and I am sorry, but I chewed up one of your baseballs. I didn't mean to. I thought it was a tennis ball and that it wouldn't make any difference but Daddy and Marilyn said that they would get you another one, so is it all right for me to keep playing with this one as long as you are getting a new one? Love from your friend and ankle-chewer.'

The light-hearted, but slightly wistful tone of these letters (the word lonesome crops up again and again in her letters to the children at this time) are made more poignant by the fact that on 1 August Monroe had suffered her second miscarriage.

Anderson and Banner's selection of material presents Monroe in a positive light. She is a woman fighting to control her image in a man's world; a talented comic actress compared by directors to Garbo and Chaplin; a caring stepmother; a clever correspondent; a trustworthy friend.

The authors do not, however, gloss over her petulance ('I am exceedingly sorry but I do not like it,' reads her curt telegram to Twentieth Century-Fox on being sent the script for Pink Tights, which she'd already decided she did not want to make); nor over her refusal to compromise, which during the filming of The Misfits led to Dorothy Jeakins – a major Hollywood costume designer who had done costumes for Monroe on both Niagara and Let's Make Love – leaving the film ('I'm sorry I have displeased you. I feel quite defeated – like a misfit, in fact,' wrote Jenkins). Angry legal spats also bear witness to her legendary lateness, which resulted in almost everything she worked on running over schedule.

Despite knowing how infuriating she could be, it remains impossible not to like Monroe. She had a wit worthy of Mae West ('There is only one way he could comment on my sexuality and I'm afraid he has never had the opportunity!' she wrote of Tony Curtis, though he would later claim to have been her lover) and an ability to remain winsome even in adversity.

After she was fired from the film Something's Got to Give in 1962, as her drug habit escalated, she wrote to George Cukor, the director: 'I blame myself but never you. The next weekend I will do any painting, cleaning, brushing you need around the house. I can also dust.'

Marilyn always said it was the people and not the studios who had made her famous, and we see the best of her when she reaches out to her public. She received thousands of fan letters each week, and was meticulous about filing away those that had particularly touched her.

There is a charming letter from a 17-year-old Italian boy, who is clearly entirely overcome: 'I imagine that you and I dance wrapped in a sky of stars, and they smile on us.' He requests a lock of Monroe's hair. Monroe is clearly touched because along with the letter is found a note by her: 'Pic of him and dedication autographed and returned also a lock of hair. Also a letter which I will carry next to my heart always.'

Equally moving is a note from the mother of a soldier who saw Monroe perform in Korea in 1955. She quotes from the letter her son sent her: 'When she appeared on the stage, there was just a sort of gasp from the audience – a single gasp multiplied by the 12,000 soldiers present… The broadcasting system was extremely poor… However, it didn't matter. Had she only walked out on stage and smiled it would have been enough.'

If representatives of the Kennedys did remove documents from the filing cabinet on the night of Monroe's death, and Lois Banner is certain that they did ('I know who took them and what happened to them, but I don't feel at liberty to say at this point,' Banner told me), they were pretty thorough. The archive now has almost no material relating to Monroe's relationships with JFK and Robert Kennedy, which are thought to have dominated the final months of her life.

Tantalisingly, she makes two references to Robert Kennedy in letters written on 2 February 1962, the day after she had attended a dinner in the attorney general's honour. To Arthur Miller's son, Bobby, she writes: 'I had to go to this dinner last night as [Robert Kennedy] was the guest of honor and when they asked him who he wanted to meet, he wanted to meet me. So, I went to the dinner and I sat next to him, and he isn't a bad dancer either. But I was mostly impressed with how serious he is about civil rights.'

She is rather more circumspect when relating the incident to Miller's father, Isidore: '[Robert Kennedy] seems rather mature and brilliant for his thirty-six years, but what I liked best about him, besides his Civil Rights program, is he's got such a wonderful sense of humor.'

Smitten? Maybe. There are certainly no other letters here that emanate this wide-eyed flirty glow. But the remaining documents from Monroe's last spring and summer offer no hint as to where this relationship might have gone.

Instead there are ledgers and memos charting the increasingly poor state of Monroe's finances and revealing that her main expenditure was on medical bills. There is an eerie absence of anything else. Where are the letters from friends, the fan mail, the urgent telegrams of former times?

Stolen, perhaps? Or had the isolation that Marilyn always so feared begun to close around her. The only hint of human warmth to be found among a sea of cheques and tumbling balances is a note, signed with a heart, from Monroe's acting coach Paula Strasberg: 'Have faith,' it reads.

He describes his fascination and perspective on his subject in detail, "Miss Marilyn Monroe calls to mind the bouquet of a fireworks display, eliciting from her awed spectators an open mouthed chorus of ohs and ahs... In her presence, you are startled, then disarmed, by her lack of inhibition. What might at first seem llike exhibitionism is yet counterbalanced by a wistful incertitude beneath the surface. If this star is an abandoned sprite, she touchingly looks to her audience for approval. She is strikingly like an overexcited child asked downstairs after tea. The initial shyness over, excitement has now gotten the better of her. She romps, she squeals with delight, she leaps onto the sofa. She puts a flower stem in her mouth, puffing on a daisy as though it were a cigarette. It is an artless, impromptu, high spirited, infectiously gay performance. It may end in tears. Equally impromptu is her general appearance. This canary blond nymph has been so sufficiently endowed by nature as to pay no attention to the way she looks. Her hair, her nails, her make-up, have a makeshift, spontaneous attractiveness. It is all very contemporary: Marilyn Monroe conjures up two straws in a single soda, juke-boxes, sheer nylons and drive- in movies for necking (does she not project a hynotized nymphomania?). This, then, is the wonder of the age - a dreaming somnabular, a composite of Alice in Wonderland, Trilby, or a Minsky artist. Perhaps she was born the post war day we had need of her. Certainly she has no knowledge of the past. Like Giraudoux's Ondine, she is only fifteen years old; and she will never die." Cecil Beaton, June 1956.
- Encased in a silver tryptich, engraved on the center panel To Marilyn Monroe Miller Love Nedda and Joshua Logan. Gelatine silver print. 1956. Signed "Cecil Beaton" in red pencil on the mount.

Typescript, 33 pages (of 35, without pages 23 and 25, typed on rectos only). Bound in yellow wrappers (several pages detached and loosely inserted, some pages with creases and other signs of use, covers worn).
MARILYN MONROE'S COPY, evidently used in the filming, with her lines circled in red crayon on many pages, and with very extensive notes in pencil and ink on inside wrappers and throughout the text. Random notes on the front cover include "The situation," "enjoy,""just work for the situation," and "dream sequence:everything you do-do more/Amanda in a dream." On the inside front cover are a number interesting inscriptions, including "using my intelligence [sic]/am not a baby any longer," "she's a person/I am playing her," and (possibly referring to her character, Amanda) "For the theatre/she'll do anything." The inside back cover too contains some interesting self-admonitory notes: "Accept it, summon all strength needed - save myself for other things/don't fight/enjoy when I can," and "Not intense/leads to only tension/relax." Every page of the promptbook is marked up, with Marilyn's lines underlined or bracketed in bright red ink, there are numerous changes in the lines and cues noted, and the margins of each page contain notes in ink and in pencil, evidently made at different times during the filming. Her extensive notes - which reveal Monroe's very serious and meticulous efforts to perfect her role as "Amanda Dell," the showgirl being romanced by an incognito billionaire - are too numerous to do more than briefly sample here. At the bottom of page 3, she writes "what a small world only theatre"; on page 4, where she is describing the attitudes toward women in the theatre, she writes "types like J. Gould," and reminds herself to say certain lines "like a child." National politics are the subject on a note on page 9, where she has written: "What's wrong with the Democratic party letting Nixon win" (the filming took place during the Presidential contest between Nixon and Kennedy). At page 8, she writes "Joan of Arc" at the top of the page, and, in the margin: "Joan of Arc [sic] hears voices - sound the wind makes in Roxbury around the corner of the house- like a human whistle." At the top of page 14, in bold letters, she writes "don't rush" and "scene made by the silences/don't rush on the silences on the lines rush if necessary." At the top of page 33 appear several provocative inscriptions: "If I have to kill myself I must do it," and "acting must/occur not be made/use something to make/this possible" At the end of her lines, on the last page, she records the final moments of the film: "he kisses her vastly." On the inside back wrapper she has written several telephone numbers including that of Dr. Greenson, her Beverly Hills psychiatrist.

Her notes in scenes 118 to 130 are extensive and quite interesting, and include "walk - tiredness, weariness, inside exhillerated [sic]; "the words are on a thin thread."

 Lot 48: SCRIPT FOR SOMETHING'S GOT TO GIVE, 1961
Screenplay by Arnold Schulman. November 22, 1961. Screenplay. Confidential. For Planning Purposes Only.
Confidentiality notice, mimeographed title page and 138 pages script (printed on rectos only). Bound in light green paper wrapper with Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation logo, title on spine (one tear to front cover).
MARILYN MONROE'S COPY, with numerous markings and notes in pencil on 39 pages. On the blank page facing the title she has written:"she maneuvers [sic], she gets him to chase her - he[sic] resents her leaving her husband." On the title page appear a number of notes and page references to the script and the observation "at one point in the story two women like each other but hate the man." Below, she writes, emphatically, "not a story for MM," and adds, "it's for a man and just any two girls except the first 45 pages." On the same page, she apparently records her reactions to the change of screenwriter: "why was the writer who wrote it let go?" and queries "New Producer, How come?" ON page 57, where the stage directions call for Richard and Priscilla to "embrace and kiss passionately," she has added: "but mechanically." On page 58, Monroe likens the towering rage of the forsaken Ellen to the emotions expressed in a song from Lerner and Loew's My Fair Lady, writing "I can do without you, or just you wait, Henry Higgins, just you wait." On page 69, Monroe has pencilled in what appear to be some ideas for the cinematic action. Instead of Ellen banging on the wall of the room honeymoon suite in which Priscilla and Ricahrd are kissing, Marilyn suggests: "she plays a record player very loud - and she does the twist and at certain beats in time with the music she bumps him against the wall." Continuing though, on the next page she writes "Ellen is getting tired her bumps are getting less enthusiastic and sad to put it mildly." Page 87 bears several notes, and the blank page facing it is covered with extensive pencilled notes concerning Ellen's lines, and suggesting a number of lines, including, "Now listen this happens to be a democracy - we're even the 50th state. We are no longer just a possession of the U.S.A." Monroe is caustic about certain weak features of the script: on page 126 in the script, the lines of the character Richard include a particularly awful pun: "You know the old saying - cast your broad upon the waters." In the margin Marilyn writes, "Not funny." On page 130, next to rather silly lines by Priscilla about the availabilty of men, she writes "Not a good speech," and next to Ellen's response to Priscilla, she comments succinctly: "sick." Following the final scene (Richard and Ellen kissing), she writes in large letters: "NO NO NO."

Estimate: $8,000 - $10,000 / Sold: $36,800

On page 7, which is very heavily annotated, Monroe queries Bianca's use of the term "psychosomatic":"would she come right out with this sort of thing? I feel a hint of what she's getting to would be more real"; at another point, Monroe asks: "How can she say this at this point - too early? Gives away what she will be saying later...No! she is not a Nut but a cold Hard dame!...Maybe she could also be one of these 'practical' types - a bookkeeper at heart." On page 7a, Monroe comments on lines of the judge: "This is funny?" On page 12, heavily annotated, Monroe comments, "Ellen is no longer Irene Dune [the actress, Irene Dunne]- and the only people on earth I get on well with is [sic] men so lets have some fun with this opening scene on Ellen plus impact for the picture." On page 23, remarking on Bianca's taking Nick's hand, Monroe writes: "Let's remember she is frigid - We all know what Kinsey found out about most females. This has got to be one in one way or another." On verso of the last page are pencilled notes referring to the character Dr. Schlick, who has a German accent: "Alex Guinness/Oh goodness/on/vot - what/I am so merry." With a loose final page from a shooting script with bold ink notes about Schlick's accent: "Escuse me, plees...good Gude french u/Dat isgude/Dis is cross between D and TH."
