Berniece recalls Monroe telling her that "The first time I saw my father, I was lying flat on my back in the hospital. I looked at him and I studied his face and features, and I saw that mother had told me the truth, that he was my father." Considering the fact that this is a get-well card, coupled with the fact Monroe stated to her half-sister Berniece that she first met her father when she was hospitalized, Gifford himself clearly hand delivered this card to Monroe when he visited her during one of her hospital stays. Given the fact that they ostensibly had no relationship prior to this one and only known meeting, it is highly unlikely that Gifford traveled across the country from his home in Hemet, CA to visit Monroe during one of her NYC hospital stays. Based upon all available information, the visit most likely occurred during one of her many hospitalizations in Los Angeles.
It has been widely reported that Monroe unsuccessfully attempted to contact her father by telephone many times over the years. Monroe persisted visiting the town of Hemet, California in an attempt to locate him which is confirmed by numerous locals reporting Marilyn Monroe Spottings in Hemet. It is believed that Gifford did not want to upset his wife and children by allowing Monroe to be part of his life.
This card is the only known material artifact that establishes any connection or communication between Gifford and his famous daughter. Monroe's mother Gladys dated Gifford in 1925, he was at the time her supervisor at RKO pictures. While working for him as a film negative cutter, Gladys became pregnant and gave birth to a daughter on June 1, 1926. Norma Jeane was Gladys third child. Although Gladys registered the surname Mortenson on Norma Jeane's birth certificate, using the name of her ex-husband instead of Gifford, it has been assumed for decades that Gifford was actually Marilyn Monroe's father.
Gifford was finally definitively proven to be Monroe's father through DNA testing in 2022. Although this card includes no warm salutation from the man that was indeed her father, it further complicates our understanding of the relationship, or what was believed to be the complete absence of a relationship with arguably the most important male figure in Monroe's life. Previous scholarship recounts Monroe's attempts to contact her father resulting in only bitter rejection and a broken heart, yet this card supports Berniece Miracles first-hand account and it is proof that he reached out to her in a time of need.

An original gouache and ink on paper costume sketch from the production of Joseph L. Mankiewicz's classic film All About Eve (20th Century Fox, 1950) by Edith Head.

Davis appears on-screen with Marilyn Monroe, in a breakthrough performance, wearing the gown. Head won the Oscar for Best Costume Design, Black-and-White for this Oscar winning Best Picture; Davis was nominated for Best Actress. The sketch is faintly penciled "for Bette Davis" to the right side, and initialed, possibly by Mankiewicz, near the right bottom hem.

Lot 258: 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). 9 x 12 inches

Two letters with dates in 1952 and 1953 are from an aspiring songwriter and singer by the name of Mrs. John H. Spurgeon. Another letter is from Harold Mirisch dated May 7, 1959. Another letter on letterhead from The First Baptist Church dated December 4, 1958 is from a man named Bill Lennon, requesting Marilyn's permission to write to the TV show "What's My Line?" and list his occupation as secretary to Marilyn Monroe. Included is a very direct letter to Lennon in response, reading in part, "Miss Monroe would not under any circumstances permit the use of her name in any misrepresentation." Also included, a carbon-copy of a letter addressed to "John" dated February 1, 1960 (likely designer John Moore) asking if he'd been advised by the Railway Express Company about a message left at the Beverly Hills Hotel for Marilyn that read, "The dress you expected from Talmack was destroyed in a plane fire." Handwritten annotations on the letter list a "Mr. Clemens, Head of Air Department," and a phone number for the claims department, not in Monroe's handwriting. Overall a very interesting look at the types of issues Monroe dealt with on a daily basis.

From the personal files of Marilyn Monroe: A one-page typed letter from Ruth Edens, apparently an acquaintance of Monroe's from her childhood, dated August 24, 1954, and reading in part, "I have long intended to write you this letter because I have particularly wanted to say that when you used to visit me at my Balboa Island cottage, you were a shy and charming child whose appeal, it seems to me, must have reached the hearts of many people. I could never seem to get you to say much to me, but I loved having you come in and I missed your doing so after you'd gone away. I wondered about you many times and was delighted when I discovered you in the films. I hope the stories in the magazines which say you felt yourself unloved throughout your childhood, are merely press-agentry. In any case, I want you to know that I, for one, was truly fond of you and I'm proud of you for having developed enough grit to struggle through to success." The letter also states, "I hope you are getting much happiness out of life, little Marian [sic]. I saw so much that was ethereal in you when you were a little girl that I fell sure you are not blind to life's spiritual side. May all that is good and best come your way!? The letter is signed "Sincerely, Ruth Edens." 9 x 11 inches

Lot 288: MARILYN MONROE: ARTHUR MILLER HANDWRITTEN BOOK DEDICATION
A single piece of lined paper torn from a spiral-bound notebook, heavily stained, containing a notation in Miller's hand reading "This book is being written out of the courage, the widened view of life, the awareness of love and beauty, given to me by my love, my wife-to-be, my Marilyn. I bless her for this gift, and I write it so that she may have from me the only unique thing I know how to make. I bless her, I owe her the discovery of my soul."
Although the note is undated, Miller refers to Marilyn Monroe as his wife to be, indicating that it was written prior to their marriage on June 29, 1956. Although this dedication did not appear in any of Miller's books it was possibly intended to be used in A View from the Bridge, which Miller was rewriting as a two-act play during his courtship with Monroe. Because Miller was not officially divorced until June 1956, it is possible that the dedication was not used due to timing. 8.5 x 11 inches

The first page was published in the book Fragments and contains references to "The Sleeping Prince," an early production title for Monroe's film The Prince and the Showgirl, dating these writings to 1956.

She instructs herself to make a list of tasks and work on exercises, which perhaps explains the cryptic writings on the second page that did not appear in Fragments, reading in full, "From Ridding partly/ T Nautiousness [sic]/ Place/ personalization (A)/ weariness/ (J)/ (Ar)." 8.5 x 11 inches

Lot 434: MARILYN MONROE: PERSONALLY ANNOTATED "SOMETHING'S GOT TO GIVE" SCREENPLAY AND PAGES
A Something's Got To Give (20th Century Fox, 1962) mimeographed screenplay by Nunnally Johnson, 149 pages, blue cover dated March 29, 1962 reading "Final Confidential For Planning Purposes Only." The script, marked final, also dated March 29, 1962, contains notations in Monroe's hand throughout in pencil and green ink on 18 pages. Some of the notations are from Monroe's work with a Swedish dialect coach.
In addition to these notations, two typed pages of Monroe's dialogue are bound between pages 107 and 108 of the mimeographed script. These two pages contain Monroe's dialogue from one of the few scenes captured on film, with her extensive pencil notations. Raw footage of Monroe performing with Tippy the cocker spaniel and the children in this scene exists, and Monroe's notations are evident in the footage. The top of the page reads "Real Thought/ Mental Relaxation/ substitute children - B & J if necessary/ feeling - place the pain where it is not in the brow." B & J likely refers to Arthur Miller's children Bobby and Jane. Another notation next to one of Monroe's lines of dialogue reads simply "Mona Lisa," which does in fact mirror the expression she uses when delivering this line. Even the exaggerated "Ahhhhh---" that Monroe does at the beginning of each take in the raw footage is written on the page in her hand, reading in full, "Ahhh--Look for the light.?
The notations throughout the script also include notes in an unidentified hand criticizing certain points of the story, including "Too Harsh," "Naggy," "Dull" and many other comments. Overall, the notations in both the script and on the dialogue pages used by Monroe to film the scene with the children and Tippy the dog tell the story of a tedious script writing and editing process. Her dialogue notations are a revealing window into her process in performing some of the last scenes she ever recorded on film. 9.5 x 12 x 1 inches

Lot 451: MARILYN MONROE: DOG-RELATED POSTHUMOUS CORRESPONDENCE
An undated typed letter from Mrs. Edward Herdan of Los Angeles that reads:
"To whom it may concern: I was greatly taken aback when I saw the pet of Marilyn's in a picture with her. We were forced to put our pet to sleep on account of old age recently and she was a double of this little dog. We have been looking with grieving hearts for several months now, to find one that resembled our Shaggsy, but all in vain. If it were at all possible to get the dog we could give it an excellent home. Dr. Christenson of the Hollywood Cat and Dog Hospital was our Vet for fourteen years. Hope this request receives some consideration. Sincerely, Mrs. Ed Herdan."
Included is a copy of a letter from Inez Melson, Monroe's former business manager, dated September 4, 1962, reading:
"Dear Mrs. Herdan, I hope you will understand that I have not answered your kind letter about "Moff" before this because of the pressure of matters involving the affairs of Marilyn. I know how you must feel about your little "Shaggsy" and it would be wonderful if it were possible to send "Moff" to live with you. However, you will understand that her sister's dearest wish is to have him and I hope in due time to be able to send him to live with her. Unfortunately, in due process of law, even little "Moff" is a part of Marilyn's personal effects and thus, he has to wait. It grieves me greatly to refuse so many kind people and I only wish that I could grant the desire of each good person who would love "Moff" as his mistress loved him." The letter is signed, "Sincerely yours, Inez Melson, Administratrix of the Estate of Marilyn Monroe."
Frank Sinatra gifted the dog to Monroe in 1961. She named him Maf as a comic reference to Sinatra's mafia connections. Interestingly, people within Monroe's inner circle appear to be unaware of the correct spelling of the dog's name. Written correspondence reflects use of the names "Maff" and "Moff."

Lot 89217:Extremely Rare "The Models Blue Book" Featuring Marilyn Monroe's Early Appearance (1945).
Vintage original printed 90-page casting book of models, dated 1945-1946. Published by Emmeline Snively of the Bluebook Modeling Agency who is acknowledged to have discovered a very young Marilyn Monroe (then "Norma Jean Dougherty") working on an assembly line at a Radioplane factory. Snively was one of Monroe's earliest professional mentors with a great belief in the young model, and one who guided Monroe toward a career that would ultimately make her a legendary superstar. Marilyn appears on page-25 of the 8.5" x 5.5" book with her stats and a portrait photo by David B. Conover, who met Marilyn when she was working on the Radioplane assembly line in Van Nuys, California. Conover had been sent by the U.S. Army Air Force''s First Motion Picture Unit to shoot morale-boosting pictures of female workers and Marilyn immediately impressed him. She quit working at the factory in January 1945 and began modeling for Conover. Defying her deployed husband, she signed a contract with the Blue Book Model Agency in August 1945. The book exhibits age, handling with chipping and peeling to cover, spine, some cracking and spidering to the cover surfaces.

Only 54,000 copies of this landmark magazine were printed, as legendary publisher Hugh Hefner was unsure of the market's reception.

Clins d'oeil à Marilyn dans "Under the Silver Lake"

Les clins d'oeils à Marilyn au Cinéma


   - Under the Silver Lake  -

Le film "Under the Silver Lake" contient bon nombre de références à Marilyn Monroe et à l'âge d'or du cinéma Hollywoodien des années 40 à 50. Voici une compilation des références à Marilyn dans le film:

> Sarah, la voisine de Sam (le héros du film), a un petit chien bichon, de même race que celui que possédait Marilyn (Maf):

2018-Under_the_silver_lake-cap-01-1 

> Sarah invite Sam à venir prendre un verre chez elle; puis ils regardent le film How To Marry A Millionaire (Comment épouser un millionnaire), allongés côte à côte dans le lit. On découvre trois poupées disposées devant la télévision, qui sont les répliques des personnages tenus par Marilyn, Lauren Bacall et Betty Grable dans le film. Il y a aussi un poster du film accroché au mur:

2018-Under_the_silver_lake-cap-01-5 2018-Under_the_silver_lake-cap-01-6  

> Sam se rend compte que l'appartement de Sarah est entièrement vide. Il s'introduit par effraction dans l'appartement et découvre une boîte à chaussure restée dans le placard. Il l'ouvre et découvre plusieurs objets à l'intérieur, dont les trois poupées:

2018-Under_the_silver_lake-cap-02-1 2018-Under_the_silver_lake-cap-02-2 2018-Under_the_silver_lake-cap-02-3 

> Sam est dans son canapé, et il entend du bruit à l'extérieur. Il s'avance sur son balcon et découvre Sarah dans la piscine de la résidence, en train de nager nue et l'invitant à la rejoindre. Cette scène est une réplique de celle tournée par Marilyn dans son dernier film Something's Got to Give:

> Chez l'écrivain des fanzines qu'adorent lire Sam, dans la chambre secrète de l'écrivain, les murs sont ornés de coupures de presse; on y découvre la Une du Daily News paru le 6 août 1962, annoncant le décès de Marilyn:

2018-Under_the_silver_lake-cap-04-1 

> Dans l'appartement de Sam, sur le mur derrière sa télévision, figure le poster du film Creature of the Black Lagoon, un film sorti en 1954, que l'on retrouve dans le film The Seven Year Itch (Sept ans de réflexion) avec Marilyn (c'est ce film qu'elle va voir au cinéma avec Richard Sherman alias Tom Ewell):

> Sur le frigo de Sam, plusieurs photographies sont disposées: la photo de Sarah qu'il a volé dans la boîte à chaussure après qu'elle ait disparu, mais aussi des photos de Marilyn extraites du film Something's Got to Give:

Présentation de l'éditeur: Au début des années 1960, la 20th Century Fox traverse une crise sans précédent qui manque de la faire sombrer. Au coeur de cette tempête naissent pourtant deux films: Cléopâtre et Le Jour le plus long, qui marqueront l'histoire du cinéma, ainsi qu'un troisième, Something's Got to Give, qui demeurera inachevé. Leurs destins, comme ceux de leurs protagonistes, sont étroitement liés.
Ce livre met en scène un mythe blond Marilyn Monroe face à une légende brune Elizabeth Taylor. La descente aux enfers de l'une, quand la vie de l'autre se rallume au feu d'une passion.
Il fait aussi revivre un immense cinéaste, Joseph L. Mankiewicz, dont les ambitions se heurtent à celles du grand producteur Darryl F. Zanuck.
De Los Angeles au Cinecittà de la Dolce Vita, de Londres à Paris en passant par New York, Hollywood ne répond plus nous entraîne dans un monde de pouvoirs, de jalousies et de créations. Ce récit d'une épopée, humaine et artistique, est aussi celui de la fin de l'âge d'or hollywoodien.

Gilet Mexicain

Hand-Knitted Cardigan
'The Mexican Jacket' 

Cardigan tricoté main
"Le gilet mexicain"

1962-07-13-santa_monica-mexican_jacket-by_barris-025-3c 

C'est un gilet long de laine couleur blanc crémeux, avec une bande de motifs géométriques de couleur noir et marron foncé au centre du buste, au col et sur les manches. Il se ferme à la taille avec une large ceinture.

Il s'agit d'un gilet de la garde robe personnelle de Marilyn Monroe. Elle l'a acheté durant son séjour au Mexique en février 1962; c'est en faisant du shopping à Toluna avec Eunice Murray, sa gouvernante qui l'accompagne, pour trouver des idées d'ameublement pour sa maison de Brentwood qu'elle vient d'acheter, qu'elle tombe sur ce gilet. Eunice Murray racontera plus tard (en 1975) l'anecdote: Marilyn aurait remarqué une pile de gilets 'faits mains' dans une petite boutique et aurait dit: "Je pourrai porter ça les fraîches matinées quand je dois quitter tôt la maison". Elle achète donc le gilet pour la modique somme de 130 pesos (à peine 6 €).

Marilyn est vue avec le gilet le 1er juin 1962, le jour de ses 36 ans: après une journée de tournage et une petite fête d'anniversaire improvisée sur le plateau de "Something's Got to Give", elle quitte le plateau de la Fox en compagnie de l'acteur Wally Cox, vêtue d'un pantalon blanc de coupe droite, de la toque de fourrure qu'elle porte dans le film et du gros gilet. Elle se rend à une soirée de bienfaisance (un match de base-ball dont les bénéfices sont reversés au profit de la dystrophie musculaire).

mm_dress-mexican_jacket-1962-06-01-sgtg-1 mm_dress-mexican_jacket-1962-06-01-sgtg-2 mm_dress-mexican_jacket-1962-06-01-sgtg-3 
mm_dress-mexican_jacket-1962-06-01-sgtg-4  mm_dress-mexican_jacket-1962-06-01-sgtg-5 

Elle choisit le gilet dans sa garde robe pour la séance photos qu'elle tient avec le photographe George Barris (fin juin et début juillet 1962). Lors de la séance photos du 13 juillet 1962 qui se tient sur une plage de Santa Monica où elle pose en maillot de bain et serviette verte, elle enfile le gilet vers la fin de la journée.

Les fans de Marilyn portent une certaine fascination pour le gilet. Il faut dire que c'est un gilet qui peut être porté aussi bien par les femmes que par les hommes. Et il traverse les époques, restant ainsi intemporel et classique, avec une touche d'originalité par ses motifs à connotation mexicaine. De par son prix (à l'origine) abordable, il s'en est beaucoup exporté et a rencontré un grand succès, se vendant en grand nombre. Des firmes mexicaines en ont alors produit de multiples versions. Dans les années 1970s, il est devenu très populaire, approprié par la jeune génération qui le portait sur des Tee-Shirts et jeans. Ce type de gros gilet est resté un basique des gardes-robes jusqu'au début des années 1980s, pour revenir à la mode au milieu des années 2000s.

Le gilet de Marilyn est vendu aux enchères organisées par Christie's en 1999 à New York: acheté 130 pesos par Marilyn, estimé entre 30 000 et 50 000 $ aux enchères, il est finalement vendu pour la somme de 167 500 $ et est aujourd'hui la propriété de la société Ripley's Believe It Or Not, qui regroupe toutes sortes d'objets étranges, et tient plusieurs musées à travers le monde (Hollywood, Londres, Australie ...).

Enchères Nate D Sanders 12/2016

  Vente aux enchères 'December 2016 Auction' par Nate D. Sanders Auctions du 15 décembre 2016 aux Etats-Unis
La vente aux enchères contient 3 lots consacrés à Marilyn Monroe:

Lot #12: Marilyn Monroe's Grave Marker
Marker for the grave of Marilyn Monroe, from the Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery in Los Angeles, California. Marilyn Monroe's grave is visited by thousands of fans each year who often touch the marker, causing oxidation of the bronze. As a result, the marker is changed periodically, with this marker dating to the early 1990s. All of the markers originate from the Gasser-Olds Company, a bronze foundry, as this one does. Upon the marker's back reads, ''Make Two Patterns for Marge''; Marge is the supervisor who set the lettering on the marker. Bronze marker reads ''Marilyn Monroe / 1926 - 1962'', bordered by the original scroll design. Measures 15.25'' x 4.75''. Some rubbing and oxidation to bronze, overall in very good condition. In 2015, another marker from Marilyn Monroe's site sold for over $200,000 at Julien's Auctions.
Estimation: $35,000 - No Sold

Lot #13: Marilyn Monroe Heavily Hand-Annotated Script for Her Last Role, ''Something's Got to Give'' -- Marilyn Makes Copious Notes to Herself About Her Character, ''easy/very intimate/very real''
A fascinating peek inside Hollywood legend Marilyn Monroe's creative process. Heavily annotated in her own hand, this 149-page screenplay from Monroe's last and unfinished film, 1962's ''Something's Got To Give'', reveals Monroe as an actor who took deep care in finding the meaning behind each line of dialogue and her character's motivations throughout the script. Monroe's handwritten pencil notes begin with her character's (Ellen Wagstaff Arden) introduction in the script on page 12 and carry through to the end on page 149, even including notes on the verso of the last page and back cover, such as a note reading, ''Joke writers Mel Brooks / Herb Gardner / Need spice / raisins / Need some funny lines''. There are notes in Monroe's hand on approximately 42 pages in the script, ranging from simple dialogue corrections and changes to in-depth sense memory notes when doing a scene that required a deeper emotional connection and understanding. Regarding her character's introduction, as she interacts with naval personnel who saved her after being marooned on an island for five years, Monroe writes, ''1 - Gayity [sic] 2 - Excitement 3 - Then Dazed''. In one scene, Monroe references Arthur Miller's children to better help her relate to her character's children, ''Bobby M. / and early Janie / except their [sic] mine.'' Throughout the script, Monroe writes succinct dialogue and character notes: ''Stunned / Dazed - sky high with adventure'', ''dead pan/I really don't know'', ''anticipating the joys'', ''Trying to think or remember'', ''start to wonder what's from now on'', ''I don't know he knows'', ''easy/very intimate/very real'', ''[L]et me get into something more comfortable / leading him on -''. Included is a small card with call times and scenes to be shot, and a small scrap of paper with a note in Monroe's hand wondering why they are shooting out of sequence, as well as notes about using Miss vs. Mrs. Script measures 9.5'' x 11.5''. Worn from use by Monroe, but with pages present and intact. Overall very good condition.
Estimation: $20,000 - Sold: $25,000

Lot #14: Marilyn Monroe's Very Own Hand-Annotated Script From Her Last Movie, ''Something's Got to Give'' -- Marilyn Writes Notes to Herself, ''...almost a whisper / I just want to tell you...''
An enthralling glimpse into screen legend Marilyn Monroe's creative process from her personal 149-page screenplay for her last and unfinished film, 1962's ''Something's Got To Give''. The script contains notes in Monroe's own hand in pencil and green ink on approximately 18 pages, serving as intimate snapshots about how she viewed the film and her character. Some of the highlights include notes Monroe made for Scene 168, in which she interacts with her children in the movie, who don't recognize her as they were too young when she became stranded on an island for five years and presumed dead. These hand-annotated typewritten pages were inserted into the script for this particular scene - one of the few that Monroe completed before her untimely death. Within these pages, Monroe writes a series of notes regarding her preparation: ''Real thought'', ''Mental Relaxation'', ''Look for the light'', ''Place the pain/feeling where it is not in the brow'', as well as specific sense memories to help find the emotional truth with her character's feelings toward her on-screen children, ''Substitute children - B & J if necessary'', perhaps referring to Arthur Miller's children Bobby and Jane. There are also some notes from Monroe regarding her work with a Swedish dialect coach. Peppered throughout the script are further dialogue notes, changes and line strikes. Interestingly, the script also includes notes in an unknown hand giving blunt, critical assessments and insights of the script's scene descriptions, direction and dialogue. These notes start on the script's first page, ''Note for Marilyn/He has to woo her not the way it is / new blue pages'' and continue in blue pen, ''Dull'', ''Naggy'', ''Make it funny!'' and ''Smugly''. Interestingly, Monroe reacts to some of these notes, either changing dialogue and scene direction or, in some cases, striking the note itself if she doesn't agree with it. The script also contains two paper-clipped inserts, memos from the production addressed ''To All Secretaries'', the first dated 23 April 1962 and the second 27 April 1962, each accompanying blue revised pages 91 and 92 for the script. Script measures 9.5'' x 11.5''. In worn condition by Monroe, but with pages present and intact. Script cover, marked ''FINAL / CONFIDENTIAL'', is torn slightly on spine. Overall in very good condition, a rare keepsake from Hollywood's most beloved movie star.
Estimation: $20,000 - No Sold

 A series of letters including five unsigned file copies of Marilyn Monroe's letters to Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Lester Markel of the New York Times together with five typed, signed letters from Markel on New York Times letterhead.

On the subject of Fidel Castro, Monroe writes, "Now, Lester, on Castro. You see, Lester, I was brought up to believe in democracy, and when the Cubans finally threw out Battista [sic] with so much bloodshed, the United States doesn't stand behind them and give them help or support even to develop democracy." She also discusses possible presidential candidates and offers slogans for their campaigns in the post script: "Nix on Nixon" and "Back to Boston by Xmas - Kennedy." Two of the five pages of Monroe's file copies contain three drafts of the same letter that is left unfinished.

Lot 156: MARILYN MONROE NOTES WRITTEN ON BACK OF 1952 MENUS
 Two menus dated March 26, 1952, featuring notes on verso in blue ink in Monroe's hand that appear to have been taken during a meeting with someone advising her about her career. The menus are dated just 10 days after Monroe's nude modeling shots were made public by the media. Monroe had recently appeared in a number of films in small parts and had received positive mentions from critics. Monroe had just started dating Joe DiMaggio, and she was to appear on the cover of LIFE magazine the following month. This was clearly an important and pivotal period in her career, and it appears as though she was meeting with someone in the industry who gave her counsel. One of the warnings appears to come from Johnny Arnez; Monroe put's his warning in quotations: "you'll have to protect yourself or your throat will be cut/ watch out for Jerry Webb." It continues, "you'll prepare the test & Webb shoots it and if something is wrong it will [be] your fault." A great deal of the notes reference Webb and things he has said behind her back. Berniece Miracle mentions seeing Webb, the test director, in the Fox commissary in the late 1940s when she snuck onto the lot with Monroe to spend the day with her half-sister. The notes also contain thoughts from Monroe reading in part, "I need a great deal of work - and will always/ its the right kind of work/ -the more I will be able to stand on my feet." and "think with your body/ let go physically to ick up emotionally" and "you want me to be a star/ and I can be one of your greatest stars/ when I'm doing the right/ work and know I'm doing." Just over two months after these notes were written, Monroe learned that she had gotten the part of Lorelei Lee in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.

Lot 173: MARILYN MONROE HANDWRITTEN ACTORS STUDIO CLASS NOTES
 A single sheet of hotel stationery from the Waldorf Astoria, New York, where Monroe stayed between April and September 1955, with the opening salutation and start of a letter "Dear Art" that has been scratched out. The page is covered on recto and verso with notes, recounting the goings-on in one of Monroe's acting classes with Lee Strasberg. The notes begin with Monroe quoting something said by Strasberg: "I want you all to know that this exercise went on for/ 1/2 hour and her concentration did not/ give way or slip once-and Marilyn there/ will be very few times ever on the/ stage where it will be/ necessary to keep/ such a concentration/ for one half hour/ straight." Monroe then asks herself, "Why did it/ mean so much to me." On the back she continues to ruminate about class, writing, "Strasberg/ it makes me (him he said) feel badly (and sadly) for you that you do/ things out of fear/ You must start to do things out of strength-/ (my question: where do I get the strength)-he said-by not looking for strength/ but only looking & seeking tecnical [sic] ways and means." This presents a fascinating demonstration of how seriously Monroe took her formal acting training in New York.

She instructs herself to make a list of tasks and work on exercises, which perhaps explains the cryptic writings on the second page that did not appear in Fragments, reading in full, "From Ridding partly/ T Nautiousness [sic]/ Place/ personalization (A)/ weariness/ (J)/ (Ar).""

The letter is dated simply June 9, and it accompanied the latest version of the script for The Prince and the Showgirl. Olivier discusses Monroe's dialogue and that he has "written some extra dialogue and a direction or two." He reports on where they are in the script writing process and that they have cut the script down from "well over 3 hours" to 2 1/2, to 2 hours 10 minutes. He continues about the scenes that were and were not cut, including "The Duke of Strelitz is, I think essential, as otherwise they will be saying 'what's the matter with them - why the heck can't they get married' particularly in view of Grace Kelly and all that, and our only answer to that question must be 'Yes but Look at the poor Windsors' do you see?"
On an amusing note, Olivier mentions, "By the way Lady Maidenhead has degenerated to Lady Swingdale because I am assured the Hayes Office will not believe there is also a place in England of that name." He closes "I just called up Vivien at the theatre ... and she said to be sure to give you her love. So here it is and mine too. Longing to welcome you here. Ever, Larry."

If you want me to, I can go through the script and make the changes - - in New York./ I think the part - on one reading, is really the Best one ... especially with you playing it. You are the one who makes everything change, you are the driving force ... The basic problem is to define for yourself the degree of the girl's naivete. (It could become too cute, or simply too designing.) It seems to me, at least, that they have not balanced things in Olivier's favor. ... It ought to be fun to do after Bus Stop. From your - (and my) - viewpoint, it will help in a small but important way to establish your ability to play characters of intelligence and cultivation. ...

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.

Boy - said lines no effort - like crossing street - Lee said he wants - Behavior - When someone is trying to make someone (love etc.) how does one go about it/ Lee said - girl simplicity good honesty, to begin (New) with - but..." The last notes are taken on two sides of one leaf of paper and read "My heart Belongs To Daddy Number/ Remember always left -" and "While tearing off/ caddy-move head a little/ Daddy R. shoulder up/ call dog in closer"; clearly, these notes are for Monroe's musical number in Let's Make Love (20th Century Fox, 1960). The notes correlate with the lyrics of the song, and indeed Monroe does move her head a little during the first verse that mentions the caddy, and she does raise her right shoulder up the first time she says "Daddy" in the chorus.

But I must, above everything, continue to work (and live) in terms of my own honesty, pride and good taste." The letter is accompanied by an unsigned file copy of a letter from Jeakins to Mr. C.O. Erickson stating, " ... [C]ircumstances make it clear to me that I am unsuitable for this assignment and perhaps should be replaced. ... [U]nder these circumstances, I intend to accept no remuneration for my work and prefer to be omitted from the credits also. ... "

Lot 517: MARILYN MONROE FAMOUS ARTISTS SCHOOL CORRESPONDENCE
 A group of documents regarding Monroe's enrollment in the Famous Artists School of Westport, Connecticut, a distance learning program designed to further students’ fine art skills. The first letter, dated October 24, 1958, from the school's director, acknowledges Monroe's communication with "Jon Whitcomb who tells me you are quite interested in painting. He also tells me that you would like too [sic] take the Famous Artists Painting Course. At Jon's request we are making you a scholarship student but I am at a loss as to where to forward the textbooks since, as I understand it, you will be in Hollywood for sometime before returning to New York City." The next letter is an unsigned file copy of Monroe's response requesting the books be sent to 444 East 57th Street. Also included are a series of follow-up letters, six pages total, welcoming Monroe to the program, explaining the logistics of how the program works with critiques conducted via mail, and a full list of instructors. Also included are a blank Student Information Record and "Rate Yourself Progress Chart" forms with accompanying letters and a postage-paid envelope. The documents clearly demonstrate Monroe's interest in painting and the fact that she sought formal instruction.

Lot 577: MARILYN MONROE NOTATIONS ON TELEGRAM
 A Western Union telegram from Nunnally Johnson dated April 16, 1962, a week before production was to begin on Something’s Got To Give. Johnson was one of the screenwriters on that film and sent the telegram care of producer Henry Weinstein, misspelled "Wernstein." The telegram from Johnson reads "In Revised script you are child of nature so you can misbehave as much as you please love - Nunnally." Monroe has quickly written a note in pencil for reply reading "Where is that script - is the child of nature due on the set - Hurry Love & Kisses M.M." "Love and Kisses" is repeated, and additional illegible notations have been crossed out. The lighthearted response foreshadowed what was to come with Monroe frequently not reporting to the set as she was scheduled to appear, leading Fox Studios to fire her from the production.

Lot 578: MARILYN MONROE SOMETHING'S GOT TO GIVE SCRIPT AND PAGES USED ON SET
 20th Century Fox, 1962, mimeographed screenplay by Nunnally Johnson, 149 pages, blue cover dated March 29, 1962 reading "Final Confidential For Planning Purposes Only." The script contains two paper-clipped inserts, memos from the production addressed "To All Secretaries," the first dated April 23 and the second dated April 27, 1962, each accompanying blue revised pages 91 and 92 for the script. The script, marked final, also dated March 29, 1962, contains notations in Monroe's hand throughout in pencil and green ink on 18 pages. Some of the notations are from Monroe's work with a Swedish dialect coach.
In addition to these notations, two typed pages of Monroe's dialogue are bound between pages 107 and 108 of the mimeographed script. These two pages contain Monroe's dialogue from one of the few scenes captured on film, with her extensive pencil notations. Raw footage of Monroe performing with Tippy the cocker spaniel and the children in this scene exists, and Monroe's notations are evident in the footage. The top of the page reads "Real Thought/ Mental Relaxation/ substitute children - B & J if necessary/ feeling - place the pain where it is not in the brow." B & J likely refers to Arthur Miller's children Bobby and Jane. Another notation next to one of Monroe's lines of dialogue reads simply "Mona Lisa," which does in fact mirror the expression she uses when delivering this line. Even the exaggerated "Ahhhhh---" that Monroe does at the beginning of each take in the raw footage is written on the page in her hand, reading in full, "Ahhh--Look for the light.”
The notations throughout the script also include notes in an unidentified hand criticizing certain points of the story, including "Too Harsh," "Naggy," "Dull" and many other comments. Overall, the notations in both the script and on the dialogue pages used by Monroe to film the scene with the children and Tippy the dog tell the story of a tedious script writing and editing process. Her dialogue notations are a revealing window into her process in performing some of the last scenes she ever recorded on film.

Lot 580: MARILYN MONROE NOTES ON SOMETHING'S GOT TO GIVE SCRIPT
 A Millers Falls EZERASE pad of typewriter paper with prepunched three-ring binder holes. The cover is detached but present, and the pad contains four pages of notes, two now detached, in Monroe's hand in pencil outlining her issues with the script for the film. The notes and criticisms include "logical drama but doesn't move on the screen/ leads him on than [sic] said not until"; "instead using the talents/ he's stuck/ imagine being married to MM and she comes back and he is stuck/ he'd dying to go Bed with her but can't because"; "more entertaining/ keep it on an edge/ if it isn't that kind of picture it won't go -/ only if script is acceptable." Then come Monroe's suggestions for a scene with check marks next to the ideas: "When Dean first see's Ellen -me- in nurses uniform - (as nurse) he could say - upon arrival - slouching ‘I don't feel so good nurse (weakening in the knees how could she do this to me/ I am telling her/ Beanka kind of stiffening up to hold him & the situation (the nite [sic] before) together he then pulls up but Dean will do this superbly/ He sings little song when drunk & frustrated." She also lists specific passages: "Page 73 (yes? - No? you understand Dean!)/ Page 76 children scene (in comparison to rewrite)." A small note on the last page of notes reads "Funny line writers Herb Gardner / Mel Brook [sic]."
These notes present a very astute Monroe who clearly had serious concerns with the quality of the script, demonstrating that her refusal to appear on set was grounded in these concerns and not simply the actions of a petulant star.

Lot 581: MARILYN MONROE WORKING SCRIPT FOR SOMETHING'S GOT TO GIVE
 A 149-page screenplay for Something's Got To Give by Nunnally Johnson dated March 29, 1962, in blue paper wrappers, marked final. There are notations in Monroe's hand in pencil on approximately 42 pages in the script, some simple dialogue corrections and other more in-depth sense memory notes for her to remember when doing the scene to evoke the right emotional frame of mind. A simple note on the back of the last page of the script reads "Joke writers/ Mel Brooks/ Herb Gardner/ Need spice/ raisins/ Need some funny lines." In a notation next to the stage direction for her character's anticipation and excitement about calling home after she has been rescued, she writes of Arthur Miller's children, "Bobby M./ and early Janie/ except their [sic] mine." In the scene where she is kissing her husband again and excuses herself to "get fixed up a little," she writes, "[L]et me get into something more comfortable/ leading him on -" and "[I]n other room throwing out piece of clothing" and below she writes "[L]ike F.S. when ingaged [sic]." Over an entire passage of dialogue she makes a stage direction note to herself that reads "Ellen looking speculative champain [sic] glass/ finger going around rim." In another scene she writes, "Have the Mask - face relaxed" and "shaking head when he leaves room sly smile/ fat on the fire/ he's on the grittle [sic]." She continues with the fat sizzling on the griddle metaphor, later writing next to a line that jabs at Nick, "Nicely/ He frys on grittle [sic]/ butter melting/ then it sputter/ him."
Notes on the last page of the screenplay read "Act only in beginning/ Then tempting him/ then act when nurse/ on balcony at hotel/ speculative looks/ always tempting him/ always saying yes/ but N/ I've only been away 5 min./ her point of view." Together with a small card with call times and scenes to be shot and a small scrap of paper with quickly written note in Monroe's hand wondering why they are jumping to shoot indoors when they could shoot in sequence as well as notes about using Miss vs. Mrs.

I know that you are not made of ether, but he doesn't. ... Would you send him, in my care, a picture of yourself, perhaps in pensive, girlish mood, inscribed to him by name and indicating that you are aware of his existence. He is already your slave. This would make him mine. If you will do this, I will send you a guest key to the ladies' entrance of Fort Knox."
