03/12/1944 - Lettre de Norma Jeane à Grace

Lettre de 4 pages datée du dimanche 3 décembre 1944, écrite par Norma Jeane Dougherty (Marilyn Monroe) à son ancienne tutrice Grace McKee Goddard.
Elle remercie Grace qui lui a envoyé une robe noire qui lui appartenait. Norma Jeane se sent gênée de ce geste, car c'est une robe de qualité, d'un prix onéreux.
On apprend aussi que Norma Jeane envoie de l'argent à Grace.
Elle lui parle de son voyage de retour de Chicago en train: en octobre, Norma Jeane avait pris le train de Los Angeles pour aller en Virginie rendre visite aux Goddard (Doc qu'elle surnomme "papa", le mari de Grace, et la fille de celui-ci Bebe Goddard), puis elle alla voir pour la première fois sa demie-soeur Berniece qui vivait à Détroit, pour terminer son périple par Chicago pour aller voir Grace. Elle n'oublie pas de remercier encore Grace qui avait été l'initiatrice de ce voyage en organisant la rencontre entre les deux soeurs.
Elle parle aussi toujours de l'absence de son mari Jim Dougherty, parti dans le Pacifique, et de faire part de l'amour qu'elle lui porte.

Letter of 4 pages dated on Sunday, December 3, 1944, written by Norma Jeane Dougherty (Marilyn Monroe) to her former guardian Grace McKee Goddard.
She thanks Grace who sent her a black dress that belonged to her. Norma Jeane feels embarrassed by this gesture, because it is a quality dress, at an expensive price.
We also learn that Norma Jeane sends money to Grace.
She tells her about her return trip from Chicago by train: in October, Norma Jeane had taken the train from Los Angeles to go to Virginia to visit the Goddards (Doc whom she nicknames "daddy", Grace's husband, and the daughter of this one Bebe Goddard), then she went to see for the first time her half-sister Berniece who lived in Detroit, to end her journey by Chicago to see Grace. She does not forget to thank Grace again who had been the initiator of this trip by organizing the meeting between the two sisters.
She also always talks about the absence of her husband Jim Dougherty, gone to the Pacific, and to share the love she has for him.

Traduction de la lettre:

Ma très Chère Grace,
Merci beaucoup pour la petite robe noire que tu m'as envoyée, je l'adore. Tout ce dont elle a besoin, c'est d'être raccourcie et réajustée aux hanches. C'est vraiment adorable de ta part de me l'avoir envoyée.
Comme j'aime cette robe noire (avec le satin rose). Je ne pourrais pas la garder Grace, elle t'allait tellement bien et tu étais jolie avec cette robe. J'aurais dû l'arranger mais c'est juste qu'au lieu de ça, je ne me sentirais pas très bien, c'est une robe qui coûte tellement chère et pourtant c'est tellement adorable de ta part de me la donner. Je te l'emprunterai juste, comme avec le chapeau.
J'ai découvert qu'il est possible d'acheter un manteau de singe à crédit. Je t'expliquerai plus tard.
J'ai fait un voyage très agréable de Chicago à Los Angeles, je n'ai pas été malade une seule fois. Tout le monde a été grandiose avec moi dans le train, je te raconterai ça la prochaine fois.
Jimmy n'est pas encore rentré à la maison, il devrait peut être revenir avant Noël, mais il n'est pas encore sûr. J'éspère vraiment qu'il rentrera, tout me semble ne pas aller bien sans lui. Je l'aime tellement, hônnetement je ne pense pas qu'il existe un autre homme comme lui. Il est vraiment terriblement adorable.
J'éspère que tu ne travailles pas trop durement Grace, et de te prendre du bon temps et du repos. S'il te plaît écris moi plus de choses sur toi.
Je t'enverrai plus d'argent un peu plus tard.
Je suis incapable de te dire à quel point ce voyage me fit du bien, je te serai reconnaissante Grace. Je t'aime tellement toi et Daddy. Tu me manques Grace.
Avec Amour,
Norma Jeane,
PS: Dis "bonjour" à tout le monde au studio.

Letter transcription:

Dearest Grace,
Thank you so much for the little black dress you sent to me, I just love it. All it will need is just shortening and taken in around the waist and hips. It was awfully sweet of you to send it to me.
As much as I like that black dress (with the pink satin). I just couldn't keep it, Grace because it just fits you and it looks so nice on you. I would have to have it fixed and besides I just wouldn't feel right about it, its such an expensive dress and all, though it was so sweet at you to want to give it to me. I shall just borrow it as I am doing with the hat.
I found out that its possible to buy a bold coast monkey coat. I shall write to you about it later.
I had very enjoyable trip from Chicago to Los Angeles, I wasn't sick even once. Everyone was just grand to me on the train, I'll tell you all about it sometime.
Jimmie hasn't come home yet, maybe he might make it before Christmas but he doesn't think so. I certainly hope he'll be home, it just won't seem right without him. I love him so very much, honestly. I don't think there is another man like him. He really is awfully sweet.
I hope you not working so hard now Grace, and getting more rest and sleep. Please write to me about yourself.
I shall send you more money a little later.
A can't ever tell you how much the trip did for me, I shall be greatfull to you Grace. I love you and Daddy so much. I sure miss you Grace.
With Love,
XoXoXoXo
Norma Jeane
PS. tell everyone at the Studio "hello".

Lot n°148: costume de Gentlemen Prefer Blondes
A "must have" for any serious collector of Marilyn Monroe memorabilia, offered here is a peach satin leotard with fishnet overlay and a pair of peach satin gloves with rhinestones, worn by none other than the legendary Marilyn Monroe herself as Lorelei Lee in the 1953 classic Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.

Ultimately, it was Monroe's ability and willingness to wear such outfits that made her perhaps the greatest sex symbol in the history of motion pictures! An official 20th Century Fox sewn-in wardrobe label on the inside lining of the leotard reads, "20th Century Fox, Marilyn Monroe." NOTE: The leotard and gloves were worn in the film, however, they are not a matching set and are seen separately. Originally acquired from Sotheby's and accompanied by an original Sotheby's sticker. In overall fine condition, with some rhinestones on the leotard and gloves missing. These costume pieces are accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by Debbie Reynolds and Darren Julien of Julien Entertainment.

Lot 22: CECIL BEATON TRYPTICH PHOTOGRAPH OF MARILYN MONROE
A 1956 photograph of Marilyn Monroe Miller taken by society photographer Cecil Beaton.
In one of her most famous sittings, the actress is posed reclining, holding a rose. The photograph is signed on the mat Cecil Beaton and is accompanied by two page autograph letter signed from Beaton. 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.

Lot 25: AN ELABORATE HAREM COSTUME (12)

In addition to posing as Jean Harlow, Marlene Dietrich, Lillian Russell, and Clara Bow, she also donned an exotic harem girl's outfit with appropriate hair and make-up to imitate Theda Bara in Cleopatra, with the hope of winning the role that ultimately went to Elizabeth Taylor.

Lot 31: PROMPTBOOK FOR "LET'S MAKE LOVE"
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.

At the end of scene 148 she adds a fascinating though cryptic note referring to her acting: "Nightclub - I'm not ashamed of that/hold onto...that as Lee [Strasberg] says of my acting/say it to myself."

 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

Lot 49: SCRIPT FOR SOMETHING'S GOT TO GIVE, 1961
Script for Something's Got To Give. Screenplay by Nunnally Johnson. Revised Screenplay, February 12, 1962.
Mimeograph title page, 108 pages script (printed on rectos only), with 34 pages printed on blue paper representing changes to the script. Bound in light blue paper wrappers with Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation logo, title on spine (small tears, small stains and light soiling to covers, spine chipped). An intermediate stage of the script, before final scenes were added, and differing in many places from the final text.
MARILYN MONROE'S COPY, with numerous annotations and notes in ink (and, in a few cases, pencil) on the title page and 32 pages of the script, the annotation very heavy on about 12 pages, referring to lines, the characters, the blocking, commenting on the charaters and their motivations, etc. On title: "We've got a dog here - so we've got to look for impacts in a different way, or as Mr. Johnson says, the situation." 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."

At the bottom of that page she writes "I hope I hope I hope." At page 8 she comments "you are all crazy not me," and adds "dead pan" next to Bianca's lines.
