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).

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

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."

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. ...

Lot 441: 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.

 A small six-ring binder containing lined notebook pages in a black and red vinyl case by National. The small notebook contains 10 pages of notes in Monroe's hand, in pencil, on eight leaves of paper. The notes were taken during a class with Lee Strasberg and record bits and pieces of things that "Lee said," as is repeated on many pages, which include "For yourself not for us - or one doesn't use own sensitivity/ girl crying continuously Lee said - There should be a certain pleasure in This, in acting - we don't stop these things - she stoped [sic] crying only at those times"; "problems-all the more to be solved got to keep swimming/ criticism can be taken - to incite the will not self criticism"; "the actor has to do what the character has to do - let the author worry about his words"; "Life of - reality of champagne (you don't open every bottle the same) actor in scene took for granted (girl is going to be good (New). 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.

The pages are accompanied by eight additional full script pages featuring the dialogue that leads up to Rosalyn's pleading with Gay not to kill the horses, beginning with the close shot of the mare stepping into the noose with her forefeet.

 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.

 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]."

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."

"Et maintenant, Monsieur le Président, mesdames et messieurs... Marilyn Monroe !" s’égosille l’acteur Peter Lawford, beau-frère de John Fitzgerald Kennedy. Il est chargé d’annoncer les stars venues fêter les 45 ans du président. Personne ne sort des coulisses ! La blonde se fait désirer. Aurait-elle croisé DSK ? Lawford raconte une petite blague au public pour le faire patienter, puis recommence l’annonce : "Et maintenant..." Toujours personne. Les 15 000 personnes présentes dans la salle n’en peuvent plus d’attendre le clou du spectacle. 40 millions de téléspectateurs sont rivés à leur petit écran. Dans son berceau, Obama fait un rot. Suspense... "Ladies and gentlemen, the late Marilyn Monroe !" hurle pour la vingtième fois Lawford. Cette fois, la star monte enfin sur scène dans une robe somptueuse. Tonnerre d’applaudissements. Elle s’avance en sautillant vers le micro, se débarrasse de son étole d’hermine et entame avec hésitation "Happy Birthday, Mister President", qui entre immédiatement dans l’histoire.

Maîtresse épisodique de JFK depuis le milieu des années 50, Marilyn n’aurait raté cet anniversaire pour rien au monde. Que la Fox qui l’a menacée de la virer si elle quittait le plateau de Something’s Got to Give aille se faire foutre ! Elle a besoin de deux jours, c’est tout. Elle appelle Robert Kennedy, qui lui est redevable de quelques "gâteries", pour plaider sa cause auprès de Milton S. Gould, le patron de la Fox. Même l’attorney général des États-Unis se heurte à un refus. "C’est no !" Elle fait son job d’actrice, sinon elle est virée ! Depuis que le tournage a commencé trois semaines auparavant, elle n’a pas cessé de se faire porter malade. Désormais, plus de bons de sortie. Même pour assister à l’anniversaire du président !

First Lady

Le 17 mai, Marilyn est donc sur le plateau. Elle tourne, ou du moins essaie de tourner entre deux coupes de Dom Pérignon, se bourrant de pilules pharmaceutiques. Soudain, un hélicoptère se pose à proximité du studio. Peter Lawford en sort, se dirige vers Marilyn, la saisit et l’entraîne à bord de l’appareil qui s’envole immédiatement. Direction : New York. Un enlèvement prémédité par la star. Elle, se plier aux ordres du patron de la Fox ? Pas question.

À cette époque, Marilyn s’est mise en tête de devenir la "First Lady" ! Elle espère encore que John divorcera de Jackie pour l’épouser. Du grand n’importe quoi ! En fait, elle commence à fatiguer le président qui est plus près de la larguer que de la marier. Même si Jackie, apprenant la venue de la blonde hollywoodienne à la soirée privée de son époux, décide ne pas y mettre les pieds.

Grande inspiration...

Pour cette soirée très spéciale, Marilyn a commandé une robe à 12 000 dollars au couturier français Jean-Louis, cette même robe qui sera vendue plus d’un million de dollars 37 ans plus tard. Elle n’avait donné qu’une consigne au créateur : qu’elle soit si sexy qu’elle seule puisse la porter sur la planète, sans rien dessous. Elle comporte vingt couches de soie, et dix-huit couturières consacrent sept jours à temps plein pour y coudre plusieurs milliers de pierres du Rhin scintillantes. Petit détail qui aura son importance : le fourreau est si étroit que Marilyn ne peut l’enfiler. Il faudra le coudre sur elle, juste avant de monter en scène. C’est pour cela que, contrairement à son habitude, elle n’arrive pas en retard au Madison Square Garden où se déroule la "petite fête privée". Debout sur un tabouret, dans sa loge, elle attend que les couturières lui greffent la fameuse robe. Ça y est, la voilà prête à bondir sur scène. Avant que ce soit son tour, elle sirote des coupes de Dom Pérignon tout en gobant quelques Smarties pharmaceutiques. Elle sait qu’elle est belle, même l’esprit embrumé.

Maria Callas, Ella Fitzgerald, Jimmy Durante, Peggy Lee et bien d’autres se sont déjà succédé sur scène. C’est à elle que revient d’achever en beauté le show. Des molosses viennent la chercher dans sa loge, et étant donné qu’il lui est presque impossible de marcher dans sa robe, ils la soulèvent telle une poupée de porcelaine pour la déposer derrière le rideau de scène. Elle entend Lawford l’annoncer. Morte de trac, elle prend une grande inspiration... Mais qu’a-t-elle fait ? Les coutures de la robe n’ont pas résisté. "Shit !" Impossible d’apparaître devant les caméras à moitié à poil, puisque, effectivement, elle ne porte rien sous son fourreau.

"Happy Birthday" torride

Les fesses à l’air, elle retourne à sa loge. Les couturières s’affairent, Marilyn vide encore quelques coupes. Pendant ce temps, le brave Lawford l’annonce encore et encore. La voilà, enfin. Tonnerre d’applaudissements. Personne ne lui en veut de son retard. Elle est si belle, si fragile, si attendrissante. Elle s’approche du micro, le silence se fait dans la salle. Visiblement, elle est éméchée, mais on la sent également très excitée à l’idée de chanter pour "The Prez" comme elle l’appelle. Elle prend son souffle. Et merde, sa robe recommence à craquer sur son fessier. S’en rend-elle compte, absorbée par sa déclaration d’amour ? Son "Happy Birthday" est torride. Un ange passe... nu et en érection. Elle chante comme si elle faisait l’amour au président devant 15 000 personnes et 40 millions de téléspectateurs.

JFK, comme tous les hommes présents, ne rêve que d’une chose que la décence oblige à taire. Marilyn jubile, elle a fait sensation. C’est sûr, et bientôt, elle sera la First Lady. Son John va l’épouser. La malheureuse naïve. Elle tombe de l’Everest cinq jours plus tard quand JFK la fait appeler par Peter Lawford pour lui annoncer que leur aventure est terminée, qu’elle ne doit plus le contacter. La voilà virée du cheptel présidentiel comme une malpropre. Elle devenait trop incontrôlable, trop dangereuse pour la réputation du président. L’actrice trahie implore, supplie, mais rien n’y fait. Elle ne sera jamais First Lady. Cerise sur le gâteau, elle est finalement licenciée par la Fox. Le château de cartes s’effondre. Elle ne le remontera jamais. Le 4 août suivant, elle fait une ultime overdose, la dernière d’une très longue série. Suicide ? Assassinat ? Accident ? Le mystère demeure, 50 ans plus tard.

 Documents papiers


(Day 2) Lot 1147. Marilyn signs an early contract for the Charlie McCarthy show with a morality clause after nude photo debacle threatened to derail her fledgling career.
Document Signed, “Marilyn Monroe” and additionally, “MM” (ten times), four pages, 8.5 x 11 in. (with two 8.5 x 2 in. slips attached to pages three and four), Los Angeles, October 7, 1952, countersigned “Edgar Bergen,” who also adds his initials, “EB” ten times (each below Monroe’s). The contract concerns Monroe’s radio appearance on The Charlie McCarthy Show, recorded on October 18, 1952. A morality rider, attached to page four, addresses Monroe’s legendary sex appeal, in which she agreed Bergen could cancel the appearance, “… if I conducted or do conduct myself without due regard to public conventions and morals or have done or do anything which will tend to disgrace me in society or bring me into pubic disrepute, contempt, scorn or ridicule, or that will tend to schock [sic], insult or offend the community or public morals or decency or prejudice agency or sponsor or the entertainment industry in general …” This rider was especially important in light of the recent controversy over her nude photographs that had surfaced earlier in the year and threatened to derail her fledgling career. The same rider also evokes the “red scare” sentiment of the time. Not only did Monroe agree not to offend any moral sensibility during the program, she also agreed that her appearance could be terminated in the event she was “… held in contempt by any Congressional committee or other governmental body and any refusal to testify before any such committee or governmental body, whether for legally justifiable reasons or otherwise.” The language refers to the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC), which had become infamous after it began investigating Hollywood in 1947. Monroe’s appearance with Charlie McCarthy was an enormous hit. During the program, the pair announced their engagement, much to the consternation of Edgar Bergen who “admitted that losing Charlie would be like having his pocket picked.” McCarthy, for his part, assured listeners that he would allow Ms. Monroe to continue her screen career. “Certainly I’m gonna let her work. I love the girl. I don’t want to interfere with her career—or her income.” Exhibiting file holes at top, stapled at left, very light soiling. In vintage fine condition.

(Day 2) Lot 1148. Marilyn Monroe’s personally hand-annotated original shooting script from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. (TCF, 1953)
Marilyn Monroe’s personally-used and annotated script from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. An incomplete script, being a block of revisions delivered by the production to Marilyn Monroe comprising 69 pages total (numbered 48 through 117, missing page 93) plus a pink title cover-sheet printed “26 November 1952, ‘Gentlemen Prefer Blondes’ (Revised Final Script…13 Nov. 1952),” plus “TO ALL SECRETARIES: Please place these ADDITIONAL PAGES at the back of your script of the above date. THIS IS IMPORTANT! Majority of the prompts for Marilyn’s character “Lorelei Lee” are circled variously in graphite and non-repro blue pencil, with approximately 22 pages annotated in various inks and pencil in Monroe’s hand with amendments and additions to the script and notes on how she proposes to deliver lines and portray Lorelei’s character, with several other pages showing line deletions and other demarcations. Highlights of notes include: pg. 56, when Lord Beekman finds Lorelei stuck in Malone’s porthole, next to Lorelei’s line “Oh yes--Tea with Lady Beekman. Why, she must of forgot. She didn’t show up,” with Monroe adding an alternative line, “Well, I just wanted to see the view. It’s better from here”; pg. 58, Monroe changes the line “Piggie, will you run down to my cabin and get my purse?” to “Maybe I should have that Sherry - will you get me some”; pg. 79, Monroe has written a note to herself in the margin “Feeling that feeds the words, know the lines, go over it inteligently [sic]”; pg. 92, also to herself, “sense the feeling with the body” plus several dialogue changes; pg. 94, again to herself, “grit my teeth and forget it must have my,” “all of feeling in my words,” and “build pull back, don’t stop mutual conflict between partners.” Also, the following page (95) although bearing no notations, features the scene for Monroe’s classic musical number “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend.” In generally very good condition, with expected handling wear, soiling, and creasing, and some small edge tears and damp-staining to cover page and a few internal margins throughout. Marilyn’s unique, revealing personal notations in this script reveal her private thought processes and fleeting self confidence. On set, she was haunted by her controlling acting coach Natasha Lytess, constantly striving for her approval and insisting on retakes even when director Howard Hawks had already approved. Co-star Jane Russell looked after Marilyn on set and was often one of the only people able to coax her out of her trailer during her bouts of self doubt. Despite her anxieties, it was the role of Lorelei Lee that first fabricated her ‘dumb blonde’ persona—a genius mixture of comedy and sexiness which Marilyn personified on screen, all the while taking her acting very seriously, as evidenced by her occasional heartfelt self-motivational notes in the margins. Monroe biographer Donald Spoto once said: “She put a twist on sexiness. It was not something wicked and shameful...it was something which was terribly funny. And Marilyn enjoyed it.” A remarkable and deeply personal artifact both from Marilyn’s aura imbued within it, and of Hollywood history in general. Provenance: Christies, New York, June 22, 2006, Lot 160.

(Day 2) Lot 1150. Marilyn Monroe historic signed RCA recording contract from the year of the release of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. (1953)
Vintage 4-page 8.25 x 11 in. contract signed in blue ink, “Marilyn Monroe on onion skin paper leaf, between Monroe and RCA with mention of Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation, dated October 8, 1953. Among Hollywood historians, it’s generally agreed that 1953 marked Marilyn Monroe’s ascent to legend. Though she’d inked a seven-year deal with Twentieth Century-Fox previously, she didn’t achieve super stardom until the 1953 release of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. That mid-summer release, with its box office acclaim, served as the momentum for her signing this singing recording contract with RCA. There’s no mention in the agreement about Monroe’s compensation except her cut of resultant royalties. Monroe was obliged to record not fewer that “16 sides,” or single tunes on two sides of a record album. Text of the contract makes frequent reference to Twentieth Century-Fox. At the conclusion on page 4, the signatures of the principals appear, “Emanuel Sacks” for RCA, “Joseph Schenck”, Executive Director of Twentieth Century-Fox, and of course, “Marilyn Monroe”. Monroe is assumed to have faithfully fulfilled this contract – to include tunes from her two ensuing films, River of No Return and There’s No Business Like Show Business. Retaining 2-hole punch at upper boarder, white tape at the upper margins, and staple holes in the lower left and in the upper left corners. In vintage fine condition.

(Day 2) Lot 1192. Pat Newcomb handwritten letter giving support to Marilyn Monroe during her pending divorce from Arthur Miller. 1-page, Quarto, on “In Flight – American Airlines” letterhead stationery, dated December 31, 1960, written “Personal” at the lower left corner. As Marilyn’s personal friend and publicist, she writes to support Marilyn as her marriage to playwright Arthur Miller was coming to an end. Newcomb pens, in part: “Dear Marilyn,…I hope you will take good care of yourself. I know and understand what you are going through – but you will make it! Just take it ‘nice ‘n easy’. It will all work out – because you want it to and you have the capacity to make it work! Start with the nurse this week and please call me anytime during the night or day that you feel like talking…This week will be a rough one – but it’s worth it and very important for you. Thank you so very very much again for the wonderful ‘lifetime gift.’ I adore it!!! I can only give you one ‘lifetime gift’ – and that’s my friendship – which you know you already have! Love, Pat. See you on the 19th.” At the time this letter was written, Marilyn was on the verge of a nervous breakdown. She had separated from Arthur Miller in October, and their divorce was announced to the press on November 11th. Newcomb’s closing phrase in this letter, “See you on the 19th”, is a direct reference to the divorce proceedings that had already been scheduled. The divorce was finalized on January 24, 1961. Accompanied with original transmittal envelope. In fine condition. Estimate: $800 - $1,200

(Day 2) Lot 1193. Arthur Miller passionate love letter in which he bears his soul to his new love and future wife, Marilyn Monroe. Miller, Arthur [to Marilyn Monroe]. Incredible Five Page Typed Letter Signed, “Art”, Quarto, five pages, dated May 17, 1956, and written to “Dear Heart; My Own Wife; My Very Own Gramercy 5; Sweetheart:” Miller writes (in part):
I am enclosing a letter I got today from the first woman I ever knew in my life. My mother. Now maybe you will understand where I learned to write and to feel.
I know I am liable to get very sentimental and maudlin about this, but today is one of the most revelatory days of my life. I could write many pages even a volume, about what this letter brings to my mind. I think that had I died without ever receiving it, I should never have known some unbelievably simple but important things.
You see, Poo, I often try to tell you that you mean things to me beyond your body, beyond your spirit, beyond anything you can know about yourself, and it is hard for another person to understand what she –or he—really signifies to one who lovers her. I will try to tell you a few of the things you mean to me, and which became absolutely clear to me when I got this letter today. (I got it today, Thursday, by the way, because I was in Reno for my passport business, and picked up my mail at the post office.)
First let me say what I feared. They are very conventional people. That doesn’t mean they’re stiff—far from it. But they believe in family virtues, in wives being wives and husbands being husbands. They are not especially scandalized by infidelity, but neither do they forget that the big happiness is family happiness. Above all, they know how to love their children, and truly, if I ever needed anything they would die to get it for me. At the same time, my father could take advantage of me and my brother, if we let him, but he would do that as a father’s privilege; which sounds strange, but when he was a young man it wasn’t until he was twenty five or so that his father let him keep his own paycheck. Everything went into the family pot. It was the European way. So I rebelled in many ways against both of them and for many of the usual reasons, but the time came when I began to write successfully, when once again we were friends. I had established my independence from them; they understood it, and we created the necessary adult distance between ourselves, my parents and I, and yet a friendship of grown people, more or less…
Now I receive this letter. (All the above thoughts came as a result of receiving it.) I sat in the public square outside the post office in Reno reading it and my whole life suddenly seemed so marvelously magical. I had saved it! Darling, I had done the right, the necessary, the gloriously living thing at last! For suddenly I saw many questions answered, and many weights lifting off my heart.
It is not that I would hesitate to marry you if they disapproved. Truly, sweetheart, that was not it. It was that somewhere inside me I wanted their love to flow toward both of us because it would give me strength, and you too. It is not that they are my judges, but the first sources of my identity and my love. I know now that I could enjoy seeing my mother. She becomes a pest after too long with her, but that’s another thing. And it is not her, so much—not her corporeal, real being, but what she represents that I can now hold up instead of trampling on it. It is my own sexuality, do you see? I come to her with you, and to my father, and in effect I say—I am a lover. Look, I say, look at my sweet, beautiful, sexy wife. I can see my father’s pleasure at the sight of you—if only because he loves clothes, having been in that business all his life, and he will go mad seeing how you wear them! And if it will only be possible—I can see us with Bob and Jane and all of us joined with one another in joy. I see blue, clear air for the first time in my life when I think of myself and my wife and my children in the house of my parents…
Every time I had trouble with Mary, the worst threat she thought she could make was to go to my parents and tell them I had been unfaithful…She simply cannot conceive that my mother will accept you and my marriage, with you because you are a sexual being, and therefore I am, and parents are by their nature, in her mind, the punishers of sexuality not its helpers and allies…
Wife, Dear, Dear Woman—I have been thinking crazy thoughts. For instance, a wedding with maybe fifty people. Maybe in Roxbury, maybe somewhere else in a big house. And Bob and Jane there. And just a little bit of ceremony. Not fancy, but maybe my old friend Reverend Melish, a courageous and wonderful fighter for fine causes; or a Rabbi of similar background—I know one. Or maybe just somebody who can marry people. I want to dress up, and I want you dressed up; I want all my past looking on, even back to Moses. I want the kids to see us married, and to feel the seriousness and honorableness of our marriage, so that nothing Mary can say to them will ever make them believe we have sneaked away to do this, or that I have hidden myself and what I wanted to do. And I want this for their sakes as much as for my own pride and my joy; so that they will see their Grandma and Grandpa full of happiness—and crying too, of course. (Isn’t it strange?—I didn’t have my parents to my first marriage, which was in Cleveland. It could have been arranged, but I felt better not to have them there. That time I felt untrue, you see? This time I feel true, and if the world wanted to come I would embrace them all.)
Do you see why I say I am proud of you? You have given me back my soul, Darling. And thank god I knew it always; always and always since the hour we met, I knew there was something in you that I must have or die. And the revolution it implied for me was so much more than uprooting my household, my life; facing my own damning curse for depriving the children of my—as I thought of it then, and so on. The revolution was of another sort. It meant that I must face myself and who and what I am. It meant that I must put down those fearfully protective arms of reticence and blushing and all that stupidity, and put my arms around the one I loved and face the startling, incredible, simply glorious fact, that I am a tender man and not the fierce idiot I have tried—and failed—to become. How could you have known that, Darling? How I bless you that you knew it! I am near tears this minute at the miracle you are to me. How happy I will make you! What beautiful children I will give you! Oh, I will watch over you, and pest you, and worry about you.
I feel something today that marks it, like an anniversary, or more truly, my real day of birth. I have reached a kind of manhood I never really knew before. I tell you dear, I am afraid of nothing in this world. The soul of my talent is coming up in me as it has been these past six months, but now I feel it like bread in my hands, like a taste in my mouth. Because I am touching its source and not turning away from it anymore. Believe in me, Darling—I am certain enough of myself to tell you that. And worry nothing about yourself. You are beyond all danger with me because I love you like life itself. Truly, you are my life now.
Your husband, Art
[in Miller’s hand]
Some more ----------------
PS…If we got married before you had to leave, I could then come and live openly with you and we could maybe tour around on your free time and have some fun. The problem is the lack of time before you have to leave. I’ll be back from Michigan on the 17th. The kids, by our agreement, have to be back with Mary by the 22nd, in order to have a week’s time—(a little less)—to prepare for camp, shopping, etc. Assuming I have a divorce by June 1 or a few days after—as in now planned—we would either have to do it between June 1 and June 15th; or between June 17th and July 7th…The whole problem is to juggle the time I have with them, and the time you’ll be around to attend the ceremony. Don’t worry about it, though. I’m just warning you, however,--you’ll be the most kissed bride in history when my family is there. I’ll have to fight the bastards off. I’m going to put up a sign, “ONE KISS TO A RELATIVE!” (Don’t worry, there won’t be that many.)
How I love you. My heart aches when I think of you being so tired. But you’ll perk up here right off, dear wife. OH, AM I GOING TO MAKE LOVE TO YOU, BEGINNING WITH THE SOLES OF THE FEET AND GOING DUE NORTH, UNTIL SLU-U-U-SH!—RIGHT INTO GRAMERCY PARK!
The World’s Luckiest Man Since Adam Art
Arthur Miller was introduced to Marilyn Monroe by Elia Kazan in 1951. After the introduction, they had a brief affair to which Miller admitted to his wife, college sweetheart, Mary Slattery. Miller and Monroe were married on June 29, 1956, only days after he divorced Slattery. In this fascinating and revealing letter, Miller chronicles his deteriorating marriage and divulges deeply personal family issues. In this incredible letter, Miller lays bear issues which mirror some of the central themes his characters wrestled with in his dramas: personal and social responsibility, moral conviction, betrayal and the issues of guilt and hope.

With original transmittal envelope of this letter addressed to Mrs. Harris with TLS on Marilyn Monroe Productions letterhead signed by Mrs. Fanny Harris releasing Monroe of any salary claims or demands.

(Day 2) Lot 1199: Marilyn Monroe in The Misfits approx. 48 minutes of unseen 8mm footage sold with copyright. (UA, 1961)
Original unpublished approx. 48 minutes of color 8mm documentary film footage captured throughout the entire location shoot for Marilyn Monroe’s final [completed] film, The Misfits. Shot by uncredited extra Stanley Killar (with help from an assistant, as Killar appears occasionally on camera interacting with the cast and crew). Killar and his camera were clearly accepted with full access, judging from the intimacy of the hand-held camera with Marilyn, Clark Gable, Montgomery Clift, John Huston, and others. Filming begins in Reno on the casino strip filled with flashing neon signs, and around the “Mapes Hotel and Casino” which was official headquarters for the production while on location. Includes Marilyn first in the legendary cherry dress, truly radiant, then throughout the footage in a few different outfits preparing for and rehearsing scenes like the courthouse (consulting with her coach Paula Strasberg), the rodeo and the tavern; Gable riding horses, practicing roping with a lasso, getting in and out of his beautiful personal Mercedes 300SL Gullwing, rehearsing the drunken tavern scene with Marilyn, and much more, and nearly always with cigarette in holder; real stunt cowboys rehearsing the bull-riding and bulldogging scenes (at obvious great peril) as doubles for Montgomery Clift, who we then see practicing falls as inserts into the filmed stunt action (his nose injury seen in the film was genuine from earlier rodeo rehearsing); and numerous shots of director John Huston and his camera crew at work, and near the end, at play in the Virginia City, Nevada camel races. Also includes occasional shots of Eli Wallach, Thelma Ritter, producer Frank Taylor, Arthur Miller, and other cast and crew. The Misfits is widely considered Marilyn’s finest dramatic acting role, as well as being one of the best for both Clark Gable and Montgomery Clift. Reasonably professional (at least to a certain degree) in nature and shot from start to finish as a sequential “film in production” documentation, with apparent working title On Sets: The Misfits. To the best of our knowledge, this footage has not been previously published or broadcast (apart from its acquisition at auction from Killar’s heirs in 2008), and is offered here with full rights and assignment of copyright to its entire content. The original 8mm film stock has been properly transferred to (2) 7 in. reels in the process of recording its entire contents onto (2) different types of DVDs, while the original metal reels and cardboard Bell & Howell boxes are retained for posterity. Film stock itself is not inspected off the reels for condition, but no problems are apparent from viewing the DVD transfer. An extraordinary and absolutely unique previously missing puzzle piece in the brief, convoluted history of Marilyn Monroe on and off screen. In vintage fine condition.

(Day 2) Lot 1212: 20th Century Fox “Marilyn Monroe” CineSimplex Model D Camera #6.
The CineSimplex Model D was truly built as a better choice than the heavily-blimped Mitchell cameras at other studios. It was extremely light. Indeed, the camera was so revolutionary that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences awarded it a Class One Technical Academy Award. The camera cost $140,000 to build in 1940, a time when a Mitchell could be purchased for $15,000! Of the 17 CineSimplex Model D cameras designed and built for 20th Century Fox, only six still exist today. This #6 camera is the only example with its complete set of Bausch & Lomb Baltar lenses (25, 30, 35, 40, 50, 75 and 100mm) built specifically for this camera, matched to be optically perfect. Of particular importance, this #6 camera photographed more Marilyn Monroe films than any other, including, How To Marry A Millionaire, Let’s Make Love, Bus Stop, River of No Return, Monkey Business, and her last film Something’s Got To Give. 20th Century Fox assigned cameras to specific Directors of Photography. This #6 camera was assigned to Charles G. Clarke, ASC by the studio. Mr. Clarke’s camera was the very first used to photograph in CinemaScope. All tests for the new process were done with #6 and it worked with Leon Shamroy’s camera on The Robe. Comes with Mitchell head and wooden tripod with spreader, 20th Century Fox wooden lens box, (1) Bausch & Lomb CinemaScope lens and wooden case full of camera accessories with “Hugh Crawford Camera” (Clarke’s assistant’s) name painted on the lid. Comes with a letter of provenance from Roy H. Wagner, ASC. From the collection of Debbie Reynolds.
Estimate: $30,000 - $50,000

(Day 2) Lot 1220All About Eve screen-used prop “Sarah Siddons” award.
 (TCF, 1950) Vintage original gold-lacquered cast acrylic 5.5 x 5.5 in. sculpture of 18th Century actress Sarah Siddons (based upon Sir Joshua Reynolds 1784 portrait of her as “The Tragic Muse”) which is a key integral plot element in the Bette Davis, Anne Baxter and Marilyn Monroe classic film of backstage imbroglios. On 3.5 x 5.75 in. black-painted wooden base. Bette Davis as “Margo Channing” portrays the consummate stage actress and object of idolatry and envy in newcomer Anne Baxter as “Eve Harrington”, who manipulates Channing in order to usurp her crown as queen of the theatre, with the “Sarah Siddons” award being the badge of that distinction. This is one of the most recognized and revered “award” props ever featured in any film, not only from its importance in the story, but even more so from the continually growing fame and respect this extraordinary film garners. One of only three Sarah Siddons Award props visible during the ceremony, the statues are not only the object of specific attention through the opening sequence but one is then visible prominently throughout the film displayed on Margo Channing’s mantle. Years of storage have left the figure bereft only of its hands, with just a few tiny paint chips and bumps to figure and base, which is also missing the name placard. A truly fantastic, indelible icon from the golden-age of Hollywood. In vintage very good condition.
Estimate price: $4,000 - $6,000
