Année: 2017

Pays: France
Durée: 54 min

À l’occasion des 70 ans de Magnum, retour sur le lien noué entre les photographes de l'agence mythique et le monde du cinéma. Une plongée unique dans le regard des créateurs, parmi lesquels Robert Capa, Cartier-Bresson, ou Josef Koudelka.
L'agence Magnum, créée en 1947 par Robert Capa, est intimement liée au cinéma depuis soixante-dix ans. Ses photographes iconiques, Capa lui-même, Cartier-Bresson, ou plus tard Josef Koudelka ont accompagné des tournages, leurs réalisateurs et leurs vedettes. Ils ont ainsi documenté des scènes de vie quotidienne, de travail, ou choisi de s'écarter du cadre pour immortaliser leur propre vision artistique. Venant du reportage de guerre ou du documentaire, ces photographes du réel ont appliqué leurs méthodes de travail à ce monde d’illusions : appareil léger, lumière naturelle, photo sur le vif et sans retouches. Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, Kate Winslet, Michelangelo Antonioni ou Theo Angelopoulos sont passés sous l'œil de l'agence, instaurant un lien unique qui ne s'est pas défait en soixante-dix ans.
Fiction et réel
C’est par amour pour l’actrice Ingrid Bergman que Robert Capa prend la toute première photo de cinéma de Magnum sur le tournage des Enchaînés d’Alfred Hitchcock, inaugurant cette histoire entre l’agence et le cinéma. À partir de nombreux récits inédits, le documentaire retrace toute une vie d’histoires croisées entre deux mondes qu’a priori tout oppose : la fiction et le réel, comme cette rencontre en 1994 entre le réalisateur Theo Angelopoulos et le jeune photographe Josef Koudelka. Ils puiseront dans les Balkans, lieu de tournage du film Le regard d'Ulysse, des clichés et plans extraordinaires, tout en gardant chacun leur signature unique. Un témoignage passionnant sur le regard des créateurs, artistes de l'image, qu'ils soient derrière une caméra ou un appareil photo.

Retranscription du passage lié à Marilyn Monroe:

(à 19min 30sec) - Peter Marlow (photographe): Quand on a ce genre de relations, cela rend les choses très différentes; ça permet d'atteindre ce niveau d'intimité.
David Hurn (photographe): L'exemple parfait, c'est Marilyn Monroe et Eve Arnold. Elles étaient très amies et totalement à l'aise ensemble.
Eve Arnold (photographe): Marilyn avait vu une série de photos que j'avais faite de Marlene Dietrich. C'était au début des années 50; ça devait être en 52. A cette époque, les photos étaient toutes retouchées. Tout était très mis en scène. Moi, je ne savais rien de tout ça, j'étais une photojournaliste. J'ai photographié Marlene comme elle était. Elle ne posait pas. Il n'y avait pas de décor ou d'éclairage, juste moi et elle qui chantait. Quelques temps plus tard, je suis allée à une fête donnée pour John Huston. C'est Sam Shaw, un ami commun, qui m'a présentée à Marilyn. Elle m'a regardée et m'a dit: "Vous avez fait du beau travail avec Marlene. Imaginez ce que vous pourriez faire avec moi." J'ai trouvé ça merveilleux. Il se dégageait d'elle une vraie naïveté, mais en même temps, elle avait le sens de son image et savait se vendre. Je suis sûre qu'elle a tout de suite sentie ce que nous pourrions faire ensemble. Un jour, une nuit plutôt, vers 4 heures du matin, elle m'a appelée pour savoir si j'acceptais de la rejoindre à 10 heures du matin à l'aéroport. J'aurai droit à un reportage exclusif, car elle voyageait seule avec son coiffeur.
Isabella Rossellini (actrice, réalisatrice): Eve avait sa délicatesse qui je pense, lui a permis de gagner la confiance d'autres actrices. Notamment, celle de Joan Crawford.

(... à 21min 50sec) - Eve Arnold: C'était à Chicago durant une escale qui s'éternisait. Marilyn est allée aux toilettes et comme je suis une femme, je l'ai suivie. Je n'avais pas l'intention de la photographier, mais elle était si belle avec sa jupe relevée sur ses petites jambes potelées. J'avais toujours pensé qu'elle était mince. Elle avait cette merveilleuse capacité à se faire plus grande qu'elle n'était.
David Hurn: Cette photo est tellement intime. Et j'aime à pense que Eve était si proche d'elle, que Marilyn lui faisait tellement confiance. Cette photo, pour moi, c'est la quintessence de la photographie.

Eve Arnold: Je l'ai photographiée sur une période de 10 ans. La plus courte de nos séances n'a duré que deux heures et la plus longue, deux mois, sur le tournage du film "The Misfits" de John Huston. Arthur Miller avait écrit une nouvelle dans laquelle il racontait l'histoire de trois hommes qui travaillaient dans le désert et capturaient des mustangs qu'ils vendaient ensuite pour faire de la nourriture pour chiens. C'est dans ce cadre sauvage qu'apparaît Marilyn. Clark Gable et Marilyn étaient le couple vedette. Il y avait aussi Montgomery Clift, Eli Wallach. Le film a été conçu dans le but de donner enfin un rôle sérieux à Marilyn.

Alain Bergala (essayiste): Les "Misfits" est totalement exceptionnel sur plein de points. Mais quand le film a commencé à se tourner, personne ne pouvait savoir à quel point, ce serait un film exceptionnel.
Voix Off: Le tournage du film "The Misfits" est un cas unique dans l'histoire des relations entre photographie et cinéma. Neuf grands photographes de Magnum Photos vont suivre ce tournage chaotique durant les trois mois de l'été 1960 à Reno et dans le désert du Nevada. Se succédant deux à deux toutes les deux semaines. Cet accord exceptionnel n'était pas uniquement le fait des liens de John Huston et de l'agence, mais revient à l'initiative de Lee Jones, à l'époque responsable des projets spéciaux du bureau de New York, qui a eu le pressentiment que ce film au casting de rêve mériterait une couverture exceptionnelle.

Alain Bergala: C'était la première fois dans l'histoire du cinéma où une agence obtenait l'exclusivité. Alors que toute la presse du monde aurait voulu être là. Il l'a obtenu pour une raison simple c'était que Marilyn était déjà mal en point au début du tournage et si elle avait vu arriver des photographes du monde entier, elle aurait craqué.

Voix Off: Les deux premiers photographes à arriver à Reno sont Inge Morath et Henri Cartier-Bresson.
Agnès Sire (directrice de la fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson): Cartier-Bresson, ça ne l'intéressait pas du tout. Et puis il a entrepris un voyage aux Etats-Unis l'année du tournage des "Misfits" et je pense que Lee Jones et tous les autres à Magnum lui ont dit: "Ca serait bien, on a l'exclu sur ce tournage. Ca serait bien que tu viennes, il y a Marilyn Monroe, etc..." Donc, il est allé sur le tournage; il n'est pas resté très longtemps. Mais il a fait beaucoup de photos; il a fait un portrait de Marilyn Monroe qui est très, très beau. Sa définition du portrait, qui est l'idée de saisir le silence intérieur d'une victime consentante, on voit vraiment, dans la photo de Marilyn Monroe, son silence intérieur.

Inge Morath (photographe -en 2001): Tout était exotique. Le caractère si américain du film était aussi exotique pour nous. Nous adoptions un point de vue très européen.
Agnès Sire: Arthur Miller a donc épousé Inge Morath qu'il a connue sur ce tournage des "Misfits". Arthur Miller était encore marié à Marilyn Monroe, mais c'était en train de se déliter totalement.
Alain Bergala: C'est hallucinant ce qu'on voit là dans les photos de ce tournage. Des scènes privées. C'est à dire que tout était destroy et du coup, tout était possible. Le photographe pouvait rentrer et faire la scène du ménage qui avait lieu à côté. Cela a évidemment beaucoup joué. Et ils ont senti ça, que tout allait mal.

Elliott Erwitt (photographe): Le chaos qui régnait sur le tournage était dû aux constants retards de Marilyn, à sa nervosité, et à sa grande détresse de façon générale.
Alain Bergala: Quand les acteurs arrivent, ils sont tous en très mauvais état. Clark Gable n'est pas en mauvais état mais il est très vieux, et Marilyn, ce film se trouve être son dernier film et elle le fait en très très mauvais état.
Bruce Davidson (photographe): Ce n'est pas le sex-appeal de Marilyn qui m'a attiré, mais sa fragilité. C'était une artiste qui luttait contre la dépression. Il y a cette photo que j'ai prise d'elle avec Huston qui m'a mis mal à l'aise. Elle souffrait beaucoup.

Susan Richards (auteure): Monty Clift était un peu comme  elle. Les acteurs que Dennis trouvait les plus humains sortaient souvent de l'Actor's Studio. Ils essayaient de rester eux-mêmes à Hollywood où tout le monde porte un masque. Et Monty Clift ne jouait pas ce jeu là.
Alain Bergala: L'homosexualité qu'il s'interdisait de faire savoir, névrose absolue, drogues, lui, il avait tout à la fois. Et c'est magnifique. Evidemment, la scène dans l'arrière-cour où ils sont tous les deux complètement destroy, parce qu'ils étaient réellement destroy. Et Huston détestant les homosexuels... En plus, c'était pas simple pour eux, le rapport avec Huston.
Marilyn Monroe: Ce travail peut être si... On essaie d'être sincère. Cela nous amène parfois au bord d'une sorte de folie. Ce n'est pas vraiment de la folie. Il s'agit plutôt d'essayer d'extraire de soi une part de vérité. Et c'est très dur. Enfin, disons, que c'est pas facile.
Alain Bergala: Marilyn, comme toutes les stars, contrôlait les images qu'on pouvait montrer d'elle. Sur les photos qu'elle ne voulait pas voir diffuser, on voit tout ce qui la menace. C'est à dire pour elle, la beauté n'était pas donnée, n'était pas acquise, qu'est ce qu'il a fallu de travail et d'efforts pour qu'on ait une autre image que ça. Cette lutte l'a tuée. D'être toujours une image, à un moment, ça ne tient plus. C'est le film où ça ne tient plus.
Eve Arnold: On l'a tous utilisée, cela ne fait aucun doute. Nous, photographes, devons accepter le fait qu'on a besoin de l'image des autres. Bien sûr, sans la photographie, Marilyn n'aurait jamais été Marilyn. On l'aurait jamais vue car c'est ainsi que beaucoup de gens l'ont découverte. C'est un cercle vicieux, tout le monde utilise tout le monde. Elle m'a utilisée pour l'aider à aller là où elle voulait, moi et des centaines d'autres. Je n'étais pas unique. J'était unique que dans le sens où elle faisait totalement confiance.

Elliott Erwitt: Les photographes qui ont travaillé sur ce tournage n'étaient pas des paparazzis. Nous étions des photographes Magnum. Personne ne cherchait à nuire ou à créer de scandales. Je ne pense pas qu'il y ait eu des gens comme ça parmi nous.
Voix Off: Le tournage des "Misfits" s'achève le 4 novembre 1960. Le lendemain, Clark Gable est victime d'une crise cardiaque dont il décèdera quelques jours plus tard. Rarement la frontière entre la fiction et la réalité fut aussi mince; et la proximité entre les photographes et les stars aussi grandes.
Alain Bergala: C'est un film 'bascule'. Le cinéma hollywoodien ne sera jamais plus la même chose qu'avant. C'est terminé, donc Il a filmé, en même temps, la décomposition d'un système.
Voix Off: Concurrencé par la télévision, le système des studios s'est essouflé. Et bientôt, les grands magazines suivront. Pour Magnum et le cinéma, une page se tourne.

Never-before-seen pictures of Marilyn Monroe

EXCLUSIVE: Never-before-seen pictures of secretly pregnant Marilyn Monroe, who confided to her close friend that her Let's Make Love co-star Yves Montand was the baby's father - not husband Arthur Miller
Article published on 15 february 2017
online Daily Mail

  • Marilyn Monroe's friend Frieda Hull kept the color pictures she took of Marilyn's baby bump private but were sold as part of Frieda's estate last year
  • The pictures were taken in July, 1960 in New York City; Marilyn was 34 years old
  • Marilyn and married French actor Yves Montand began working together on Let's Make Love in February of that year and their affair began soon after
  • The images were the prized possession of Hull, who worked for Pan Am and became close to the star while part of a group of fans known as the Monroe Six
  • Frieda dubbed the pictures  ‘the pregnant slides’ – a reference to a shocking secret the screen siren kept right up until her death
  • Tony Michaels, a friend and neighbor of Frieda's,  bought the images at the ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ Marilyn Memorabilia Auction held by Julien’s Auctions in LA
  • Michaels was told by Frieda that Marilyn  lost the baby. ' It was never made clear whether that was by way of a miscarriage or even an abortion'

Extraordinary photographs purporting to show a secret pregnancy of film icon Marilyn Monroe can today be revealed for the first time.
The world exclusive images of the beautiful Some Like It Hot actress and model were sold as original color slides at an auction in Hollywood in November last year from the estate of well known Monroe confidante Frieda Hull.
But the stunning photos went under the radar, selling for a mere $2,240 with wealthy collectors not aware of their true significance.

Now DailyMail.com can reveal the six unique images were the prized possession of Monroe's loyal friend Hull, which she dubbed the ‘pregnant slides’ – a reference to a shocking secret the screen siren kept right up until her death.
The shots were taken on July 8, 1960, outside Fox Studios in New York after Monroe had completed costume and hair tests for her film The Misfits, starring Clark Gable and Montgomery Clift .

- Monroe had wanted a baby more than anything in the world, but that joy was denied her. She had three miscarriages prior to losing this baby, all of which played out in the public eye

Marilyn and sexy French actor Yves Montand didn't contain their lovemaking to onscreen

The images clearly show a prominent bump from Monroe’s belly which Hull claimed was evidence the star was in the early stages of pregnancy.
And DailyMail.com can reveal the would-be father was not Monroe's then husband, playwright Arthur Miller, it was in fact Italian-French actor Yves Montand – who she met on the set of film Let's Make Love and who she had a very public affair with.

DailyMail.com spoke to Tony Michaels, the man who bought the color slides at the ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ Marilyn Memorabilia Auction held by Julien’s Auctions in LA.
Tony, 56, was a close friend and next door neighbor of Frieda Hull before she passed.
He reveals that Hull had confided in him about Monroe’s secret pregnancy and claims the ‘pregnant slides’ are genuine evidence that she was with child.
And in an extraordinary and tragic Hollywood tale Tony says Monroe kept her pregnancy a secret from the world before 'losing' the baby during a hospital visit.

dailymail-05 
The images were the prized possession of Hull, who died in 2014

Tony told DailyMail.com: ‘Frieda was very proud of those slides and she was very proud to keep them a secret until the day she died.
But she told me the story behind them, that Marilyn got pregnant by Yves Montand.
It wasn’t a guess or a presumption, it was something she knew for sure, she was very close to Marilyn.
As far as she was concerned Marilyn was pregnant in the summer of 1960 and the slides prove it.’

Monroe had wanted a baby more than anything in the world, but that joy was denied her.
She had three miscarriages prior to losing this baby, all of which played out in the public eye. The star suffered with a condition called endometriosis her entire life that caused severe menstrual pain and she also struggled to conceive.

‘I suggested she sell the slides and all her other memorabilia so she could afford a better place to live, but again she refused, she said she would never sell out on her friend of ten years Marilyn.

At Julien’s three day auction the Frieda Hull estate had 187 lots on sale.
Rare items from the archive included unseen color photos of Monroe as she sang ‘Happy Birthday’ for President John F. Kennedy at Madison Square Garden on May 19, 1962 as well as Frieda’s original ticket and program to the gala event; never-before-seen slides of Monroe on location as she filmed the now famous subway skirt-blowing scene for The Seven Year Itch and a large collection of many unpublished photos of Marilyn at the 1955 premiere of East of Eden.

One of the images in this set way signed by Marilyn: 'To Frieda Love & Kisses

dailymail-07  dailymail-08 
In January of 1960 when she was filming Let's Make Love with Yves Montand  Marilyn's tummy was flat. But by the beginning of July the star has a visible baby bump

In total, according to Julien’s, ‘The Frieda Hull Marilyn Monroe Photo Archive’ included over 550 color and black and white candid snapshots and photographs, over 150 color slides, nearly 750 movie stills, publicity photos and lobby cards, and personal home movies.
Even the camera Frieda had used to take the 'pregnant slides' as well as dozens of other photos of Marilyn - a Mercury II, model CX 35mm - went up for sale selling for a bid of $3,437.50.
Tony said: 'It was amazing stuff, Frieda had 14 Marilyn autographs, some went as high as $14,000.'

The provenance for all the lots – which sold for $433,000 - was simply that they came as part of the Frieda Hull estate.
Tony recalls: ‘Frieda had even gotten permission from Marilyn to get a couple of locks of hair from her hairdresser.
I’m not talking much, just small lots of hair, together the two locks of hair went for $72,700.
She also had a red scarf that Marilyn had given her in there.
But out of all the lots her prized possession was the six ‘pregnant slides’ as she called them.
'She talked about these to me all the time, they were very important to her.'

Julien's auctioneers decided not to mention the pregnancy claims when selling the slides.
As a result the slides went relatively unnoticed and Tony felt it his duty to snap them up, paying just $2,240 - a bargain given the back story now emerging.
Of course, the astonishing claims which will send Marilyn Monroe historians into a flap, cannot be proven - both Marilyn and Yves Montand are long dead.
But Tony's compelling account of what Frieda had confided in him is difficult to ignore.

And today he wants to tell Frieda’s story and how his long time friend was infatuated with Marilyn Monroe.
Speaking from his home in Las Vegas, the high stakes casino croupier told DailyMail.com: ‘I met Frieda over the wall in my back yard around 20 years ago around 1996, she was a neighbor and I introduced myself, she introduced herself and I invited her over for a prize fight.
‘I had ordered a pay for view fight that night and she had mentioned she was a fan of boxing and she came over with a bottle of Jack Daniels and drank me under the table.
She became my drinking partner and we became pretty good friends, she came to all the kid’s Little League games, if they had events, she went to all of them.
She became my kid’s surrogate grandmother because she had no family of her own.’

Frieda was never married and had no children so she ‘adopted’ many of the neighborhood children, including Tony’s two young boys Anthony and Andrew.
She was preceded in death by her brother, Thomas Hull; and her aunt, Elizabeth Hagen, but had no obvious heir when she died.

Tony said: ‘My family became very close to her. Frieda didn’t drive so we would take her grocery shopping or to her doctor’s appointments.
She was very generous, we’d go out to eat and she’d never let us pay for it, she liked to do a little gambling and loved sports, she was a die-hard fan of the Brooklyn Dodgers and the New York Mets.
She was set in her ways and was never going to change her opinion about anything, She was a brutally honest person.

dailymail-10 
Marilyn carried a coat in front of her belly after Frieda took the 'pregnant slides.;

She was very warm hearted, especially to the under dog whether it was children or animals.
She loved Bing Crosby and Judy Garland, but she had an infatuation with Marilyn Monroe.

Frieda is widely known to have been one of the ‘Monroe Six’ – a group of six friends based in New York City who followed the star all over America to take her photo.
As an employee of Pan Am Airlines Frieda was in the enviable position of being able to photograph Monroe on a regular basis.
The group learned of the screen siren's whereabouts by reading movie magazines and asking her hairdresser and would wait outside her hotel or home.

Tony said: ‘Frieda started out as a fan, almost like a stalker, her and five friends.
Then after a while Marilyn would recognize the kids and she came over and asked their names and they started a friendship.
When she would come in to town, for lack of a better word, they would kidnap her, put a scarf on her head and put sunglasses on her and they would go out and do things that Marilyn couldn’t do because she was too famous.
'They called her "Mazzi". It was a code name they had for her, so no one else would know who they were talking about.
She got to be a kid with the Monroe Six, they would go roller skating in Central Park or bike riding, just hang out.

Eventually Monroe came to know each member of the group very well, even inviting them to the Roxbury, Connecticut home she shared with then husband Arthur Miller for a picnic.

dailymail-11 
'I would never, I couldn’t capitalize on Marilyn’s death she was my friend,' Frieda told Tony. Her photos and memorobilia of Marilyn was sold as part of her esate when she passed away

Tony added: ‘To show you how gruff Frieda could be at times, the story went that Marilyn came over and took a potato chip off her plate and Frieda snapped and put her in her place, “don’t you ever do that, I don’t care who you are, or who you think you are, that’s rude, don’t do that”. From then on they were pretty close friends.
Every time we would get together, especially if we were drinking, I’d get to hear all the stories from Frieda.
Marilyn gave her a red scarf at one point and she worked for Pan Am so any time Marilyn came in to town Frieda would run out on to the tarmac and start taking pictures.
I told Frieda, you know you have all this stuff why don’t you sell it, you can get a better place.
But she said, “no I would never, I couldn’t capitalize on Marilyn’s death she was my friend”.

Tony lost contact with Frieda after he divorced his wife and moved out of the marital home, but he says his ex-wife and two sons kept in close contact with her.
The best friend of Tony’s sons, a man named Chris who asked for his last name to be left out of this article, was also close to Frieda and helped her in her dying months.
Chris visited her in the hospice and took care of her house, he did a great job of helping her put and Frieda was very thankful,’ said Tony.
As a result Chris was made the executor of the estate and took up Tony on his offer to help catalogue all her Marilyn Monroe memorabilia.
My kids were in the will as was my ex-wife, I was not. Frieda and I kind of had a falling out.
But I was still fond of her and her death was terribly sad.
'I helped catalogue Frieda’s Marilyn Monroe collection because over the years she had shown me most of it, I knew what to look for in her mountain of belongings.
'The first thing on my list was "The pregnant slides".
'She always called them that, she told me the father of the unborn child was Yves Montand, she told me the story of how Arthur got called away and Yves Montand's wife got called away and they stayed together in a Beverly Hills Hotel bungalow and they had an affair.'
Indeed the affair between Monroe and Montand has been widely discussed over the years.

dailymail-11a 
The camera with which Frieda snapped her pictures of Marilyn

Monroe and playwright husband Arthur Miller were staying in a luxury bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel, while the golden couple of French cinema, Simone Signoret and her husband Yves Montand were next door.
Monroe and Montand were starring in the George Cukor movie, Let's Make Love at the time.
Miller and Monroe's unhappy marriage made it easy for the star to stray.
Signoret famously said of Monroe: 'If Marilyn is in love with my husband it proves she has good taste, for I am in love with him too.'

Production on Let's Make Love, a movie starring Monroe and Montand, began in February 1960.
Soon after shooting got underway, their respective partners Miller and Signoret were called away from Los Angeles, leaving Monroe and Montand alone in Miller's Beverly Hills Hotel bungalow.
On March 8, 1960 Monroe received the Golden Globe Award for Best Comedy Actress for Some Like It Hot.
Could this be the night of conception? She would have been exactly four months pregnant in Hull's July 8, 'pregnant slides'.
In May, 1960 Miller found out about the affair and was very upset - his marriage to Monroe began to crumble.

dailymail-12 
In later years Montand admitted to the affair. 'I was crazy about my wife, but what can you do?' Montand recalled

dailymail-13 
Tony says that Frieda believed that when Marilyn went to hospital for ten days during the filming of The Misfits, it wasn't for acute exhaustion as was claimed at the time, it was for a nervous breakdown and possibly a miscarriage

By August that year they weren't speaking and Monroe moved out of a shared room with Miller at the Mapes Hotel in Reno.
In later years Montand admitted to the affair. 'I was crazy about my wife, but what can you do?' Montand recalled with a very French shrug.
Monroe died two years after Let's Make Love, at age 36.

Tony says he has meticulously researched the time period when Frieda claimed Monroe was pregnant and claims photographs taken at the time show the development of the child between two of her movies.
'Let's Make Love, you can see towards the end that she could be pregnant and she went right in to the The Misfits, Arthur Miller's play that he wrote for her,' he says.
'Then right at the end of The Misfits there's no sign of a pregnancy.'

Tony says that Frieda believed that when Marilyn went to hospital for ten days during the filming of The Misfits, it wasn't for acute exhaustion as was claimed at the time, it was for a nervous breakdown and possibly a miscarriage.
'She just told me Marilyn was pregnant in those photos and I believed her. I don't think she'd tell me that on a hunch, she knew.

Speaking from his home in Las Vegas, the high stakes casino croupier told DailyMail.com: ‘I met Frieda over the wall in my back yard around 20 years ago around 1996, she was a neighbor and I introduced myself, she introduced herself and I invited her over for a prize fight

'Frieda believed that it wasn't exhaustion that landed her in hospital, she said it was a nervous breakdown and she lost her baby.
'And all she told me was that Marilyn has lost the baby, it was never made clear whether that was by way of a miscarriage or even an abortion, and I never thought to press her on it.'

Tony says he bought the photos because he knew their history as 'The pregnant slides', while no one else did.
'Now I think that the story needs to be told,' he added.
Tony says he kicks himself that he didn't quiz Frieda more on her time with Marilyn.
She would often share gems of information and fascinating stories with him, more often than not when they shared a drink together.
'Frieda worshipped Marilyn, she loved her. She wouldn't give up anything after she died,' he said.

Frieda, originally from Brooklyn, NY, and just four years younger than Monroe, died of natural causes aged 83 in 2014.
She had retired from Pan Am and came out to Las Vegas where she enjoyed the occasional flutter in the Vegas casinos, loved watching sports and lived a solitary life with her lap dog Bobby, who died before she did.
An online obituary posted locally in Las Vegas read: 'Frieda Elizabeth Hull, of Las Vegas, passed June 22, 2014... She was one of the most interesting, wonderful and kind-hearted people the world has ever known.'
The obituary mentioned her bond with her old friend: 'She was a good friend to Marilyn Monroe and loved sharing stories and private photos of the icon.'
And it ended poignantly: 'She lived a long and beautiful life, dying at 83 years old... She was an amazing woman and I could only hope to be half the person she was. "We love you and you will be greatly missed."'

Lot 15: MARILYN MONROE ROBE
 A cream cotton mandarin style robe owned by Marilyn Monroe and gifted to her personal assistant Vanessa Reis, sisterin-law of May Reis. The robe has seven self-frog closures, an internal label reading “Tuji” and the collar stamped "REIS." Accompanied by a copy of a letter to Reis dated August 14, 1993, in which Ralph Roberts writes, "Reference Marilyn robe and bracelet. As best I recall, late one Saturday afternoon Marilyn and I were in the dining area of the Miller 9th floor suite at the Mapes Hotel. She had just changed into a robe, sitting on one of the chairs and I was massaging her back and shoulders. She showed me a bracelet she'd brought to Reno with thought of possibly wearing it as a (undecipherable) comment for Roslyn. Upon discussing it, she and Paula had decided somehow it wouldn't be appropriate. Just then May Reis entered with Vanessa Reis (the widow of Irving Reis, May's greatly loved brother and film director). Vanessa had come up from LA for a long weekend visit - there'd been some talk of our going out to some of the casinos to do a bit of gambling. Vanessa told Marilyn how lovely she looked in that robe. Marilyn thanked her + impulsively held out the bracelet, Take this + wear it as a good luck charm. I was wearing it during dance rehearsals for Let's Make Love, smashed into a prop, so a stone is loosened. I wish I could go with you, but Raffe is getting some Misfits knots out. And I should go over that scene coming up Monday.' They left. Marilyn asked me to remind her to have the robe cleaned to give to Vanessa. Whitey, Agnes, May - all of us - knew from experience we couldn't compliment Marilyn on any personal items or had to be very careful. She'd be compulsive about giving it, or getting a copy - to you."

Lot 84: HISTORIC DRESS WORN BY MARILYN MONROE WHEN SHE SANG HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO JFK AT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN IN 1962
 A Jean Louis designed illusion gown worn by Marilyn Monroe at Madison Square Garden in New York City on May 19, 1962, at a Democratic fundraiser and 45th birthday celebration for President John F. Kennedy.
Early in 1962, Monroe asked famed Hollywood costume designer Jean Louis to create a dress “that only Marilyn Monroe could wear.” The nude soufflé chiffon gown, perfectly matching Monroe’s skin tone, was embellished with hand-sewn round crystals, carefully placed since the dress was created with no underlining layer. Monroe wore no undergarments that night, instead relying on Louis’ masterful swirls of crystals in precisely the right places. Under the stage lights of Madison Square Garden, the fabric of the dress appeared to melt away, leaving only twinkling rays of light from the crystals reflected by the spotlight covering Monroe. The gown was designed as a sleeveless column dress with a scoop neck and open back with clear zipper, covered by hook and eye tab closure and a small train at the back hem. Despite the zipper and closures, the gown was so form fitting that Louis later disclosed that Monroe had to be sewn into the back closure. His hand stitching is still evident beneath the lower back hook and eye tabs. Since 1999, the dress has been displayed on a custom conservator mannequin.
In this dress, Monroe sang her unique version of “Happy Birthday” to President Kennedy and a crowd of 15,000 well-wishers. Some have posited that Monroe’s delayed appearance on stage and her breathless performance can be attributed to getting lost and racing to the stage as Peter Lawford joked about Monroe’s penchant for never being on time.
The effect of her performance was far reaching – not only for Monroe but also for American 1960s culture. Monroe’s seductive serenade remains a crossroads of Hollywood and political touch points more than 54 years later. Part of the appeal may be the intrigue: Were Monroe and Kennedy having an affair? Did she just stand up in front of 15,000 people and sing him that song that way ? The performance has taken on a life of its own, outside the context of the gala. While Monroe’s performance is instantly recognizable and the most memorable of the night, it was one of many that night that included Jack Benny, Ella Fitzgerald, Henry Fonda and Maria Callas. However, it is Monroe singing in this dress that is remembered. It has come to epitomize who Marilyn was in popular culture, including the lyrics she wrote herself for the evening:
Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday Mr. President
Happy Birthday to you
Thanks Mr. President
For all the things you've done
The battles that you've won
The way you deal with U.S. Steel
And our problems by the ton
We thank you so much
Everybody! Happy Birthday!
As an enormous birthday cake was wheeled onstage, President Kennedy commented on Monroe’s performance, joking, “I can now retire from politics after having had ‘Happy Birthday’ sung to me in such a sweet, wholesome way.”
On that special evening, Monroe could not have known that she would live fewer than three months. Perhaps she thought another future performance would replace this as the moment that would epitomize her and her life. Sadly, John F. Kennedy was assassinated eighteen months later, and if tragedy had not intervened, this may not have been the singular iconic moment we associate with Monroe and Kennedy.
Although Monroe could not have known that this performance would be the last image of her remembered by so many following her untimely death, she expended a great deal of effort and money to bring this moment to life. Monroe’s financial statements from this period reveal a great deal about the extraordinary amount of money she put behind her performance. Her May 1962 financial statements list a special expense category titled “New York Birthday Salute to the President” with a $5,000 expense, Monroe’s ticket/donation made to attend the event. Expenses also include $1,000 listed as pertaining to the birthday gala for her maid, Hazel Washington, to accompany Monroe to New York. The expense is coded as “business maid, plane fare, salary.” Her last checkbook also records a check paid to Mary Irvine for makeup for “special appearance at Madison Square Garden.” Monroe’s financial statements also list a $300 deposit paid to Western Costume Company to create this gown with matching shoes in May and a payment for the remaining balance of $1,140.33 in June 1962. There were no doubt other expenses involved in Monroe’s appearance, but the ticket to the event, dress, and the expenses listed above total more than $7,000 in 1962, which with inflation would equate to $60,000 in 2016.
These costs do not begin to take into account the cost Monroe paid professionally for her appearance. At the time she was filming Something’s Got To Give, and Twentieth Century Fox executives would not give Monroe permission to leave filming to attend the event. According to some sources, the employees on the crew were aware, in advance, that Monroe was traveling from Los Angeles to perform at the celebration. Whatever miscommunication or machinations there were behind the absence, it became another strike against the actress on an already contentious film set. Monroe’s unauthorized departure was used against her as she was ultimately fired from the film.
The performance that night in May also had an impact on Monroe’s personal life. Monroe biographer Lois Banner, in her book Marilyn: The Passion and the Paradox (New York: Bloomsbury, 2012), asserts that Monroe told the event planners that she would dress discreetly. When viewed under normal lighting, the dress did appear modest, but under the glare of the Madison Square Garden stage lights, the Jean Louis creation magically transformed into a sparkling second skin. The dress and the song were too much for the political dynasty, and according to Banner, that evening ended whatever relationship Monroe and John F. Kennedy shared and severed her from the rest of the Kennedy family. The magic and myth of Marilyn Monroe as legend was certainly sealed that evening in May 1962, made permanent by her mysterious death a short time later. The fact that she remains a contemporary role model and muse all these decades later is extraordinary and a feat achieved by few. Ten years after her death, Elton John and Bernie Taupin penned “Candle in the Wind” about Monroe, repurposing the lyrics twenty-four years later for the funeral of Princess Diana. From Andy Warhol to Cindy Sherman to Richard Avedon and Bert Stern, the art and photography world has always taken Marilyn Monroe seriously. In fact, it was Monroe’s death in 1962 that inspired Warhol to create the “Marilyn Diptych” among more than 20 silkscreen paintings of her, all based on the publicity photograph from her 1953 film Niagara, plucking her from pop culture, forever immortalized as art.

Lot 218: MARILYN MONROE MINK COAT
 A three-quarter-length mink coat with bell sleeves, wide lapel, two front velvet lined pockets and rose form buttons edged in citrine rhinestones. Label has been cut from front right lining.
It was and still is customary for furriers to embroider an owner’s name onto a label that is attached to the lining or directly onto the lining of high-end fur jackets. Due to the fact that Inez Melson and her family held this and other furs that belonged to Monroe and her estate for many years in violation of Monroe’s wishes as outlined by her will, we believe that the label, which likely featured Monroe’s embroidered name, was removed from the jacket in an effort to conceal the fact that it was a fur owned by Monroe. The labels cut from these furs have never been recovered.

Lot 32: MARILYN MONROE RHINESTONE BRACELET

The bracelet has eight rectangular jeweled panels, each centered with a rounded faceted glass and linked with square rhinestone. The clasp is embossed with Bogoff. In a letter to the consigner dated November 28, 1994, Ralph Roberts, Monroe’s masseur, writes, “Reference Marilyn robe and bracelet. As best I recall, late one Saturday afternoon Marilyn and I were in the dining area of the Miller 9th floor suite at the Mapes Hotel. She had just changed into a robe, sitting on one of the chairs and I was massaging her back and shoulders. She showed me a bracelet she’d brought to Reno with thought of possibly wearing it as a [undecipherable comment] for Roslyn [Monroe’s character in The Misfits]. Upon discussing it, she and Paula [Paula Strasberg was Monroe’s acting coach and friend] had decided somehow it wouldn’t be appropriate. Just then May Reis entered with Vanessa Reis (the widow of Irving Reis, May’s greatly loved brother and film director). Vanessa had come up from LA for a long weekend visit – there’d been some talk of our going out to some of the casinos to do a bit of gambling. Vanessa told Marilyn how lovely she looked in that robe. Marilyn thanked her + impulsively held out the bracelet, ‘Take this + wear it as a good luck charm. I was wearing it during dance rehearsals for Let’s Make Love, smashed into a prop, so a stone is loosened. I wish I could go with you, but Raffe is getting some Misfits knots out. And I should go over that scene coming up Monday.’ They left. Marilyn asked me to remind her to have the robe cleaned to give to Vanessa. Whitey, Agnes, May – all of us – knew from experience we couldn’t compliment Marilyn on any personal items or had to be very careful. She’d be compulsive about giving it, or getting a copy – to you.” Accompanied by a copy of the letter.

 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.

(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!

Vintage 20 x 30 in. oil or acrylic on canvas painting of Marilyn Monroe joining Laurence Olivier.

(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.

But is it pleasure. When the actress is kissed and feels the warm breath of her lover on her neck—can you feel it? No. It is not pleasure you’ll find here but it’s as if it were.

(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.

(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.

Two black and white double-exposure photographs of Marilyn Monroe (circa 1946), both having photographer’s stamp on verso. Approximately 11 by 14 inches each. Reference: Similar photographs from this session can be seen on pages 210-232 of de Dienes’ book Marilyn (Taschen, 2002). De Dienes met 19-year-old aspiring model Norma Jeane Dougherty in 1945 after requesting a model from her agents at Blue Book Modeling for a then upcoming project. They immediately bonded and traveled together through the western states to capture Norma Jeane in various natural settings. During that trip, they became romantically involved and were briefly engaged. After their romance ended amicably, de Dienes continued to photograph Norma Jeane and well into her career as Marilyn Monroe. The chemistry between the two was undeniable; his work captured some of the finest images of the star. Many of the photographs can be seen in his book titled Andre de Dienes / Marilyn (Taschen, 2002).

 A 16mm reel of behind-the-scenes footage shot on the set of The Misfits (Seven Arts, 1961). The reel comes with the original envelope that is addressed to Marilyn Monroe from United Artists.

Accompanied by a document from UA titled “The Making of ‘The Misfits’/ (Narration for a 20-minute featurette)” with a personal note to Monroe affixed to the cover page.
The film begins with Monroe arriving in Reno, Nevada, with husband Arthur Miller and being received at the airport, then driving through Reno. The next scene appears to be a press conference with Monroe and co-stars Clark Gable, Montgomery Clift, Eli Wallach, Kevin McCarthy, and Thelma Ritter, director John Huston, and Miller.
The approximately 19-minute film goes on to show a variety of behind-the-scenes activities of the cast and crew beginning with the filming of Monroe and Ritter in a street scene that was cut from the final version of the film.
Other segments include Monroe at Harrah's Casino taking refreshment with Ritter, Huston, and a dog Monroe attempts to feed; the cast on location; street filming in Reno with the cast in a vehicle followed by a parade of observers; Monroe signing autographs; Monroe greeting and getting on a horse; shots of the cast being filmed riding together; aerial images of the set; a baseball game being played on set; a football being tossed on set with Miller and Huston joining in the game; and Monroe lounging with two other women on the hood of a car. The last part of the film shows the filming of a Misfits scene where Monroe is swimming and playing with a dog in the water. The very last image is of Monroe running from the water to embrace Gable. No audio. Accompanied by a DVD copy of the film.

Lot 942: MARILYN MONROE'S PERSONAL COPY OF A MISFITS BEHIND-THE-SCENES FILM
 A 16mm reel of behind-the-scenes footage shot on the set of The Misfits (Seven Arts, 1961). The reel comes with the original envelope that is addressed to Marilyn Monroe from United Artists. Notes on the envelope read "16mm publicity" and "The Misfits/ film for Foreign Screening." Accompanied by a document from UA titled “The Making of ‘The Misfits’/ (Narration for a 20-minute featurette)” with a personal note to Monroe affixed to the cover page.
The film begins with Marilyn Monroe arriving in Reno, Nevada, with Arthur Miller and being received at the airport, then then driving through Reno. The next scene appears to be a press conference with Monroe and co-stars Clark Gable, Montgomery Clift, Eli Wallach, Kevin McCarthy, Thelma Ritter, director John Huston and Monroe's husband, Arthur Miller.
The approximately 19-minute film goes on to show a variety of behind-the-scenes activities of the cast and crew beginning with the filming of Monroe and Ritter in a street scene that was cut from the final version of the film.
Other segments of the include Monroe at Harrahs Casino taking refreshment with Ritter, Houston and a dog Monroe attempts to feed; the cast on location; street filming in Reno with the cast in a vehicle followed by a parade of observers; Monroe signing autographs; Monroe greeting and get on a horse; shots of the cast being filmed riding together; aerial images of the set; a baseball game being played on set; a football being tossed on set with Miller and Houston joining in the game; and Monroe lounging with two other women on the hood of a car. The last part of the film shows the filming of a “Misfits” scene where Monroe is swimming and playing with a dog in the water. The very last image is of Monroe running from the water to embrace Gable. No audio. Accompanied by a DVD copy of the film.

Lot 161: Travilla “subway dress” costume design for The Seven Year Itch. (TCF, 1955)
In this landmark film from the mid-1950s, Tom Ewell reprises his Broadway role as a husband whose wife goes on a brief vacation with their children. He remains behind in New York on business, alone for the first time in seven years of marriage, and begins fantasizing about a model who has sublet the apartment above. Marilyn Monroe plays The Girl with her characteristic mix of innocence and sexual allure. The Seven Year Itch storyline, unlike some of Monroe’s earlier films, held forth no promise as a costume showcase. It was not a period piece and she had no dance routines. Still, this was to become the vehicle for Travilla’s most famous dress design. It was a deceptively simple dress, classic but sexy, and it was meant to make Monroe look cool on the hot, sticky sidewalks of New York. “I’m going to have my precious baby standing over a grate,” Travilla remembered. “I wanted her to look fresh
and clean. So I wondered what could I do with this most beautiful girl that Marilyn was to play to make her look clean, talcum-powdered and adorable,” Travilla mused. “What would I give her to wear that would blow in the breeze and be fun and pretty? I knew there would be a wind blowing so that would require a skirt.” In his trademark painterly style, Travilla then drew his visualization of what would become the most famous garment in Hollywood history – a white crepe bias-cut dress with a halter-top and sunburst pleated skirt. Accomplished in gouache and ink on a 15 in. x 20 in. sheet of artist’s illustration board, the sketch features the now-famous skirt billowing around her waist, in the scene that would electrify audiences all over the world and reportedly bring an abrupt end to Marilyn’s celebrated marriage to slugger Joe Dimaggio.
Giving the actress a broad smile, Travilla positioned her left arm delicately across her body, while her hand holds up the skirt in a playful tease. The sketch is signed boldly at the lower right of the image in black ink, “Travilla”, with notation at the upper right corner in dark graphite, “7 Year Itch – Wind Scene at Subway”. When she stood over the subway grate and a blast of air caused her pleated skirt to swirl above her waist, Monroe made Hollywood history. Travilla’s contribution was almost forgotten, although he often mused in private about the fame of The Dress. “Here’s how famous it was,” he said. “We were traveling in London to promote the Littlewoods catalog in the 1970s, and my copy of the dress was on display along with millions of dollars in jewelry.” There was a break-in at the show, but the only item stolen was The Dress (which was later anonymously returned). This sketch perfectly embodies the many competing themes of American life during the conservative 1950s, all of which seemed to converge in this film and in this dress at the very moment Marilyn paused over the Subway grate: the responsibilities of modern life as represented by Tom Ewell’s character, the growing independence of American women, and the changing attitude of the country towards
sex and desire, which would culminate in the sexual revolution of the 1960s just a few years away. The crown jewel of Travilla’s Lost Collection, this sketch is not only a wonderful piece of Hollywood history, but an important snapshot of American popular culture from the apex of Marilyn Monroe’s meteoric film career.

Lot 764: Jane Russell extremely limited #1 of an intended run of up to 4 hand and footprint impressions from the Chinese Theatre.
The glitter and glamour of Hollywood continue to attract visitors from all over the world, and there is no monument to Hollywood that is more glamorous or iconic than TCL Chinese Theatre. The forecourt of the theatre remains a must-see spot for tourists and the star-struck to see how they fill the shoes of their favorite stars by placing their own feet in the celebrity footprints that mosaic the courtyard. This is a replica of the hand and footprint square of Jane Russell created from the original concrete impression at the Chinese Theatre when she placed her hand and footprints in the cement along with Marilyn Monroe for the west coast premiere of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.  Rumor has it that Both Jane and Marilyn wanted to make more than just hand and foot print impressions in the forecourt and that they actually wanted to imprint the physical attributes that they were both known for. Theatre management turned down this request though as it would have been considered too risqué. Measuring 37.25 x 41 in. Inscribed, “Jane Russell 6 26 53” and then “Gentleman” as the beginning of the Gentlemen Prefer Blondes title which begins on her square and ends on Monroe’s. The impression is made out of a synthetic casting compound to produce the real look and feel of concrete and does include natural materials that are found in cement.  However, this is sensitive to heat and like all valuable art, it should not be kept in high heat or be displayed in the exterior direct heat/sunlight. This piece is the first of an extremely limited intended run of up to four impressions. No rights to the Jane Russell name, signatu
