45 things you didn't know about Marilyn Monroe


 45 things you didn't know about Marilyn Monroe

Norma Jeane Mortenson - better known as Marilyn Monroe 

1. Marilyn was relatively poorly paid. Jane Russell was paid around 10 times as much as Marilyn when they co-starred in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Her salary for her final unfinished film, Something’s Got to Give, was $100,000. Compare that with Elizabeth Taylor, who was getting a million dollars for Cleopatra; or even Marilyn’s co-star in the film, Dean Martin, who was on $500,000. Today, her estate makes around five million dollars a year.

2. But she died having become a million-dollar movie star. In 1962 she was fired by Twentieth-Century Fox from the production of Something’s Got to Give because of her chronic lateness and no-shows (she didn’t appear for the first two weeks of filming). But on August 1, four days before her death, she was rehired by Fox on a $1million, two-picture deal.

3. She found it almost impossible to learn lines, and took 60 takes to deliver the line “It’s me, Sugar”, in Some Like it Hot.

4. She was Playboy’s first Sweetheart (later Playmate) of the Month, in 1953. Marilyn had been paid $50 to model for the picture in 1949; Hugh Hefner bought it for $500.

5. Several of the burial vaults near to Marilyn’s have been put on sale. When Elsie Poncher, the widow of the man in the vault above Marilyn’s, put his space up for sale on eBay, she received dozens of bids, including one for £2.8million.

6. Hugh Hefner owns the burial vault next to Marilyn at the Westwood Memorial Park in Los Angeles. He bought it in 1992 for £50,000.

7. She went by many names. On her birth certificate she is Norma Jeane Mortenson; she was baptised Norma Jeane Baker; she modelled under the names Jean Norman and Mona Monroe; her initial idea for a screen name was Jean Adair; she signed into hotels as Zelda Zonk and into a psychiatric clinic as Faye Miller. She only legally changed her name to Marilyn Monroe in March 1956, when she was already a star.

8. She was placed with 11 sets of foster parents after her mother, Gladys, was institutionalised. She also spent almost a year in the Children’s Aid Society Orphanage in Los Angeles.

9. Goya was her favourite artist: “I know this man very well, we have the same dreams, I have had the same dreams since I was a child.”

10. Marilyn became a Christian Scientist at the age of 18; later in her life she dabbled in alternative spiritualities, including Anthroposophy, the philosophy espoused by Rudolf Steiner. She converted to Judaism before her 1956 marriage to Arthur Miller.

11. Her weight went up and down so dramatically during the filming of The Prince and the Showgirl that the costume designer, Beatrice Dawson, had to create facsimile dresses in different sizes. “I have two ulcers from this film,” she said, “and they’re both monogrammed MM.”

12. She was rarely without an acting coach. Her first, Natasha Lytess, worked with her for six years and 22 films, clashing with directors, whose authority she challenged, and studio heads, who paid her bills. (Marilyn also paid her a wage – and settled her £11,000 debt at the dentist.)
Later, Paula Strasberg took Lytess’s role; unlike Lytess, who tried to direct Marilyn’s every movement from behind the camera, Strasberg was consulted between takes. To coach Marilyn in The Prince and the Showgirl, she was paid $25,000 – as much as some of the featured actors were getting.

13. For 20 years after Marilyn’s death, Joe DiMaggio arranged to have roses sent to her crypt three times a week.

14. In January 2011, Authentic Brand Groups bought the licensing rights to the Marilyn Monroe estate, for a price in the range of $30million. “On the media and entertainment side,” said the company’s chief executive, Jamie Salter, “I think she’s got a career in front of her, just based on technology.

15. At the 1999 auction of Marilyn’s effects, her white baby grand piano was bought by Mariah Carey, the singer, for $662,500. (The estimate had been $10,000-$15,000.) The piano had been bought by Marilyn’s mother, and sold after she had her breakdown, but Marilyn eventually found it and bought it back, keeping it with her until her death.

16. There was an open casket at her funeral. She wore an apple green Pucci sheath dress made of nylon jersey and a platinum wig (her head had been partially shaved during the autopsy).

17. She was thought to have been planning to remarry Joe DiMaggio at the time of her death. After the failure of their marriage, DiMaggio had undergone therapy, stopped drinking alcohol and expanded his interests beyond baseball: he and Marilyn read poetry together in these later years.

18. Marilyn’s beaded Jean Louis gown, worn when she sang Happy Birthday to President Kennedy, was sold in 1999 for £820,000. At the time it was the record price for a single item of clothing, until Marilyn’s billowing white Seven Year Itch dress was put up for sale by Debbie Reynolds in 2011, where it made £2.8 million.

19. Marilyn owned many dogs during her life; her last was a Maltese terrier given to her by Frank Sinatra, which she named Maf (short for Mafia Honey). At the Christie’s sale in 1999, two Polaroids of Maf sold for £220,000.

20. Marilyn left 75 per cent of her estate to the Strasbergs; eventually this fell to Anna Strasberg, Lee Strasberg’s third wife. She vetoes the use of all images in which Marilyn wears fur, citing Marilyn’s love of animals as a reason.

21. The Anna Freud Centre, a child therapy clinic in Hampstead, north London, owns the remaining 25 per cent of Marilyn Monroe’s estate. The centre was left its share by Dr Marianne Kris, one of Marilyn’s therapists, and the original beneficiary of her will.

22. Before her marriages to Joe DiMaggio and Arthur Miller, Marilyn was married to James Dougherty. She was 16 when they tied the knot. Dougherty, who later became a detective in the LAPD, was forbidden by his second wife from going to see any of Marilyn’s films.

23. Marilyn whitened her skin with hormone cream, one side effect of which was to encourage the growth of blonde down on her face; Marilyn would not remove this peach fuzz, believing that it gave her face a soft glow on camera.

24. She was never nominated for an Academy Award, but she was voted the “Oomph Girl” at Emerson Junior High in 1941; crowned Castroville’s first Artichoke Queen in 1948; and was Stars and Stripes magazine’s Miss Cheesecake of 1950.

25. She was named “The Most Advertised Girl in the World” by the Advertising Association of the West in 1953. Among the brands she represented were American Airlines, Kyron Way Diet Pills, Pabst Beer, Tan-Tan Suntan Lotion and Royal Triton Oil.

26. In 1950, Johnny Hyde, her agent, paid for her to have two plastic surgeries: a tip rhinoplasty (reshaping the soft cartilage at the end of her nose); and a chin implant.

27. She was an early devotee of yoga, and was taught by Indra Devi, a Swedish-Russian Bollywood film star who also taught Greta Garbo and Gloria Swanson.

28. Marilyn’s intervention got Ella Fitzgerald her first major engagement at a Los Angeles nightclub. In 1955 the colour bar was still in force, but Marilyn convinced the management to let Fitzgerald play by promising to sit in the front row for a week.

29. Marilyn was only the second woman to head her own production company (Mary Pickford was the first).

30. Marilyn had a fixation on Clark Gable, her co-star in The Misfits; as a young girl, Marilyn dreamed that he was her father. When he died, she said that she cried for two days.

31. She preferred to go naked. Among female studio employees – wardrobe mistresses, hairdressers, make-up artists – she often went without clothes. She gave interviews in the nude and often went out wearing nothing under the black mink that Joe DiMaggio had given her.

32. Writers loved her. Jean-Paul Sartre wanted her to play the role of a hysterical patient in the film Freud, for which he wrote the first draft of a screenplay; she was Truman Capote’s first choice for the part of Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

33. Marilyn’s death was ruled a “probable suicide”, but toxicology tests were only carried out on her liver. When the deputy coroner, Thomas Noguchi, tried to obtain her other organs for testing, he was told they’d been destroyed.

34. Veronica Hamel, an actress, bought Marilyn’s house in 1972. She claimed that when she was renovating the house she discovered an extensive system of wire-taps.

35. Marilyn’s hero was Abraham Lincoln: “I used to read everything I could find about him,” she wrote in her (ghosted) autobiography, My Story. “He was the only famous American who seemed most like me, at least in his childhood.

36. The books she was reading at the time of her death were Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird and Captain Newman MD, a novel by Leo Rosten based on the life of Monroe’s psychiatrist, Ralph Greenson.

37. Two men claimed paternity of Marilyn on their deathbeds: C Stanley Gifford, who both Marilyn and her mother believed was her father, but who refused to meet Marilyn when she was alive; and Edward Mortensen, who was married to her mother at the time of her birth, and whose (misspelled) surname appears on her birth certificate.

38. She was athletic. As a young married woman on Catalina Island in the early Forties, she studied weightlifting with a former Olympic champion named Howard Corrington. She later went tandem surfing with a boyfriend, Tommy Zahn, balancing on his shoulders as they cut through the waves.

39. She was a talented producer. Marilyn Monroe Productions, which she formed in 1955 with Milton Greene, the photographer, only solely produced one film, The Prince and the Showgirl. Marilyn showed her nous in winning the script: she managed to wangle a meeting with the writer, Terence Rattigan, in New York, where he was stopping over en route to Hollywood to discuss the script with the director William Wyler, luring him from the airport to a downtown bar. When Wyler failed to make him a concrete offer, Rattigan went with Monroe.

40. Many of her friends believed she was murdered. Among the potential suspects: Robert Kennedy (with whom she had had an affair); John F Kennedy (ditto); mafioso Sam Giancana; the FBI; the CIA; her psychiatrist, Ralph Greenson.

41. During the filming of Let’s Make Love, Marilyn’s no-shows added 28 days to the shooting time and $1 million to the budget.

42. Her career in front of the camera began when she was discovered working on the assembly line at Radioplane, a munitions factory, by a photographer called David Conover.

43. Arthur Miller’s play After the Fall is generally thought to be a thinly veiled portrayal of his marriage to Marilyn. The writer James Baldwin walked out of the play because he thought that “Maggie”, the Monroe character, was written so cruelly.

44. She only owned one home by herself: the house she died in at 12305 Fifth Helena Drive, Brentwood.

45. When she met Nikita Khrushchev, they discussed The Brothers Karamazov. She dreamed of playing the part of Grushenka in a film of the book.

"Spécial Marilyn Monroe"


Durée: 35 min

>>  extraits sur arte.tv

Un spécial Marilyn Monroe avec un retour sur le tournage en 1961 des "Misfits" ("Les Désaxés"), son dernier rôle ; l'anniversaire de JFK le 19 mai 1962 ; le clip "Marilyn Monroe" de Pharrell Williams ; sa rencontre avec la brune incendiaire Jane Russell dans "Les Hommes préfèrent les blondes" ; un entretien avec sa professeur d'art dramatique, Natasha Lytess

Story : The Misfits
On lui préfère souvent sa blondeur angélique, ses poses de ravissantes idiotes. Pourtant quand, en 1961, elle tourne The Misfits, son dernier rôle, on découvre une Monroe crépusculaire dans la peau d’une divorcée éprise d’une bande de cow-boys à bout de souffle. Autopsie d’une désaxée.

Garderobe : le soutien-gorge
Marilyn avait, en plus de son immense talent, deux arguments de taille qu’elle sut mettre en valeur en usant de soutiens-gorge de compèt’ qui contribuèrent à sa légende.  Tour d’horizon de cet élément de lingerie qui fait partie du quotidien des femmes.

Scandale ! : Le Madison Square Garden
Le 19 mai 1962 au Madison Square Garden, JFK fête ses 45 ans. Pour l’occasion, Marilyn Monroe chante, dans un souffle, un joyeux anniversaire dont on découvre tout à coup le puissant potentiel érotique alors qu’une rumeur raconte que JFK tromperait sa femme Jackie Kennedy avec la star. Scandale !

Clipologie : « Marilyn Monroe» de Pharrell Williams
Nous sommes en 2014 et après "Happy", Pharrell Williams sort un single qui porte le nom de la star la plus malheureuse du XXe siècle : Marilyn Monroe. Le message est simple : nul besoin d’être une icône ou une héroïne telle Marilyn pour plaire à Pharrell, amoureux des femmes en général sans distinction de taille, de race ou de religion.. mais si possible quand même ultra-canon !

Star System : la méthode Marilyn
Aucune star n’aura autant incarné l’essence de la pop culture que Marylin Monroe, icône éternelle qui a atteint le plus haut niveau de célébrité qui existe : celui de produit de merchandising en licence libre qui lui confère un caractère immortel. Vous voulez devenir célèbre ou le rester ? Découvrez la méthode Marilyn.

Icône : Les Hommes préfèrent les blondes
En 1953, le réalisateur Howard Hawks réunit pour la première fois la blonde peroxydée Marilyn Monroe et la brune incendiaire Jane Russell dans Les Hommes préfèrent les Blondes. Jean-Marc Lalanne revient pour nous sur ce buddy movie au féminin dans lequel Marilyn Monroe, elle, préfère les riches.

Perle Rare : Natasha Lytess
La première fois qu’elle a vu Marilyn, elle ne l’a pas trouvée jolie. En 1948, Natasha Lytess est engagée par la Colombia comme professeur d’art dramatique. Pendant presque dix ans et vingt films elle fut le coach, la confidente, la colocataire et aussi un peu la maman de Miss Monroe. Pour les caméras de "Cinq colonnes à la Une", Natasha Lytess se souvient de Marilyn.

Le tableau de chasse de Marilyn Monroe


 Le tableau de chasse de Marilyn Monroe
Publié le 05/04/2012,
en ligne
sur puretrend.com


Profession : Actrice et chanteuse.

Pourquoi elle plaît ? Marilyn c'est Marilyn. Un mythe, une icône, l'idole des hommes, qui n'arrivaient jamais à lui résister. Sa bouche charnue et ses yeux bleu azur en ont séduit plus d'un. Ses formes généreuses et sa poitrine pulpeuse sont aujourd'hui encore objet de fantasme. Mais ce qui plaisait aussi chez Marilyn c'était son image de jeune femme avec une âme en perdition. Fragile, bouleversée, rongée par la détresse, Monroe aurait pu être sauvée par bon nombre d'hommes... Tous devenus fous face au caractère presque bipolaire de l'actrice.

Son style de proie ? Les hommes de pouvoir, les acteurs célèbres comme Paul Newman ou Marlon Brando. Mais aussi les écrivains, comme son troisième époux Arthur Miller ou les sportifs version italien : Joe Dimaggio. Marilyn Monroe aimait plaire aux hommes et voulait toujours être sensuelle, sexy et désirable à leurs yeux. Née sans connaitre son père, elle a longtemps chercher a retrouver celui-ci au travers des hommes qu'elle séduisait.

Ses conquêtes ? Beaucoup. Trop nombreuses, avec également bon nombres de rumeurs, on en a ici sélectionné 29. Et c'est déjà pas mal ! Des hommes comme Yves Montand ou Eddie Fisher en passant par des femmes, des belles. On pense surtout à Brigitte Bardot ou Joan Crawford.

Avec qui elle aurait pu roucouler ? Si le mythe Marilyn Monroe ne s'était pas terminé trop tôt, on aurait bien imaginé celle-ci flirter avec des hommes plus jeunes. Une sorte de cougar version icône glamour. L'actrice aurait dû avoir 86 ans cette année, elle aurait donc pu flirter avec un beau gosse d'une cinquantaine d'années, connu pour son image de Don Juan. George Clooney m'entends-tu ?

Le tableau de chasse de Marilyn Monroe :

Jeanne Carmen / Eddie Fisher / Jim Dougherty

De 1941 à 1946, Marilyn Monroe est mariée à James Dougherty, surnommé "James le veinard" suite à son mariage avec cette dernière. Mais Marilyn ayant beaucoup souffert de l'abandon plus jeune ne supporta pas quand son époux parti s'engager dans la Marine. Elle expliqua plus tard que "son mariage n'était ni heureux ni malheureux" et cette première séparation officielle ne fut qu'une simple formalité.

Joe DiMaggio (1952-1954) / Robert Mitchum (1954) / Joan Crawford (1954)

Joe DiMaggio est le deuxième mari de Marilyn Monroe. Le couple se rencontre en 1953 et ils se marièrent en janvier 1954. Ce joueur de baseball professionnel a divorcer pour se mettre avec Marilyn... Un mariage qui finalement ne durera que 9 mois. Malgré un divorce à l'amiable, le tribunal accuse officiellement Monroe de "cruauté mentale".

Arthur Miller / Marlon Brando (1955-1962) / Yul Brynner (1957)

De 1955 à 1961 Marilyn Monroe est avec son troisième et dernier mari: Arthur Miller. Une relation tumultueuse née alors, entre amour et infidélités. Finalement, l'écrivain dit les pires horreurs au sujet de sa femme: "C'est un monstre narcissique et méchant qui a pris mon énergie et m'a vidé de mon talent".

Franck Sinatra (1959-1961) / Yves Montand (1960)

En 1960 Marilyn Monroe flirte avec Yves Montand, pendant le tournage du film "Le Milliardaire". Simone Signoret la compagne de celui-ci déclara "Si Marilyn est amoureuse de mon mari, c'est la preuve qu'elle a bon goût.". Montand se lassa finalement des sentiments de Monroe à son égard et retourna avec Signoret.

John F Kennedy (1961-1962) / Robert F Kennedy (1962)

De 1961 à 1962, Marilyn Monroe créa le scandale en sortant avec le Président des USA : John F. Kennedy. Une relation très complexe qui selon certaines personnes est même à l'origine de la mort de l'actrice.

15/09/1954 NYC - Sur le tournage de The Seven Year Itch partie 2

Sept ans de réflexion
Sur le tournage - scène 11   

Date: le 15 septembre 1954, à une heure du matin.
Lieu: entre la 51 et 52st Street, au croisement de Lexington Avenue.
Scène: il s'agit d'une scène mythique, l'une des plus célèbres de l'histoire du cinéma, qui reste sans doute la "scène la plus vue au monde", celle où la robe blanche de Marilyn se soulève entraînée par l'air d'une grille de métro. La presse en parla comme de "l'exhibition la plus intéressante depuis Lady Godiva".

Date: September 15, 1954, at one o'clock.
Location: between 51 and 52st Street on the corner of Lexington Avenue.
Scene: it is a mythical scene, one of the most famous in the history of cinema, which is probably the "most scene view in the world," the one where the white dress of Marilyn Monroe rises, driven by the blow of the subway grate. The press spoke of as "the most interesting exhibition since Lady Godiva".

Marilyn Monroe, Tom Ewell, le réalisateur Billy Wilder (homme en noir, chapeau noir), Johnny Graham (homme en costume, chapeau et cigar), manager de production de la Côte Est qui organisa la logistique pour le tournage des scènes à New York, et Natasha Lytess, la coach de Marilyn.

Extraits du journal de Bruno Bernard:
- Le magazine Redbook engagea Bruno Bernard pour couvrir le tournage de Marilyn dans The Seven Year Itch.
- New York - 14/09/1954. Si cela n'avait pas été pour mon travail (la couverture de Redbook) et Marilyn, dix chevaux ne m'auraient pas traîné sur le tournage de Seven year Itch. Zut. J'ai attendu trois heures au milieu des odeurs transpiration et des cris de la foule et d'une bande de paparazzis (...). Soudain, la foule a poussé un formidable hurlement. Marilyn apparaissait en chair et en os. Lorsque Billy Wilder, le metteur en scène, a dit "On tourne", Marilyn est sortie du théâtre, a fait quatre pas sur la gauche avant de s'arrêter juste au-dessus d'une grille d'aération. A ce moment précis, on doit imaginer qu'un métro quitte la station, l'air qu'il déplace soulevant la jupe de Marilyn. Pour mieux contrôler l'action, les accessoiristes ont disposé un ventilateur directement sous la grille. Dans certaines prises, la jupe blanche de Marilyn s'est soulevée au point de lui couvrir le visage, à la grande joie des spectateurs hystériques. D'après le scénario, Marilyn doit simplement dire: "Ah, quel soulagement ! N'est-ce pas délicieux ?!" tandis qu'elle prend plaisir à sentir cet air frais. 
La scène a été refaite trente fois parce que Marilyn se trompait à chaque fois dans son texte. Sous sa robe, elle ne portait qu'une petite culotte de soie blanche transparente. (...) DiMaggio, qui se trouvait juste en face de moi et près de walter Winchell, regardait le spectacle. Je me rendais nettement compte que la gêne de DiMaggio tournait à la fureur. Je me frayais rapidement un chemin à travers la foule, dans l'espoir de le calmer. Mais, avant que je n'arrive près de lui, il avait déjà quitté les lieux très en colère. Winchell (...) m'a dit que DiMaggio était parti "apaiser son tempérament de macho italien au Toot's Shor's". Roy Croft nous rejoignit: "Nous devrions plutôt nous réjouir qu'elle porte au moins quelque chose dessous".
L'absence de DiMaggio ne la troubla pas, et la déesse de l'amour poursuivit ses interminables prises devant son public new-yorkais extasié.
- J'ai vraiment besoin de faire ces photos de Joe et Marilyn pour boucler mon article. Depuis le couloir de leur appartement du Saint Regis, je peux entendre les éclats d'une querelle passionnée suivie par des pleurs hystériques. Je suis parti et je n'ai pas fait mes photos. (...) J'étais abbatu et silencieux. Rencontrant Roy dans l'ascenceur, il tenta de me consoler: "Tout n'est pas perdu. Comme il y avait trop de bruits de fond en extérieur, Wilder a décidé de refaire toute la scène à Hollywood."
