Lot 437: MARILYN MONROE: RECEIVED GET-WELL CARD FROM HER FATHER STANLEY C. GIFFORD
From the Personal Files of Marilyn Monroe: A get-well greeting card from Marilyn Monroe's father, Stanley C. Gifford, no transmittal envelope. This undated card is addressed to Monroe in Gifford's hand. Gifford has misspelled her name as "Marylyn." The card reads, "This cheery little get-well note comes specially to say that lots of thoughts and wishes, too, are with you every day," with the words "a little prayer too," having been added by Gifford. The card is then signed in Giffords hand, "Stanley Gifford, Red Rock Dairy Farm, Hemet, Calif.
In the book, My Sister Marilyn, A Memoir of Marilyn Monroe by Berniece Baker Miracle (Marilyn's half-sister) and Mona Rae Miracle (Berniece's daughter), Berniece writes on page 176 that Monroe confided to her that Gifford had visited her when she was in the hospital on an undisclosed date. Berniece recalls Monroe telling her that "The first time I saw my father, I was lying flat on my back in the hospital. I looked at him and I studied his face and features, and I saw that mother had told me the truth, that he was my father." Considering the fact that this is a get-well card, coupled with the fact Monroe stated to her half-sister Berniece that she first met her father when she was hospitalized, Gifford himself clearly hand delivered this card to Monroe when he visited her during one of her hospital stays. Given the fact that they ostensibly had no relationship prior to this one and only known meeting, it is highly unlikely that Gifford traveled across the country from his home in Hemet, CA to visit Monroe during one of her NYC hospital stays. Based upon all available information, the visit most likely occurred during one of her many hospitalizations in Los Angeles.
It has been widely reported that Monroe unsuccessfully attempted to contact her father by telephone many times over the years. Monroe persisted visiting the town of Hemet, California in an attempt to locate him which is confirmed by numerous locals reporting Marilyn Monroe Spottings in Hemet. It is believed that Gifford did not want to upset his wife and children by allowing Monroe to be part of his life.
This card is the only known material artifact that establishes any connection or communication between Gifford and his famous daughter. Monroe's mother Gladys dated Gifford in 1925, he was at the time her supervisor at RKO pictures. While working for him as a film negative cutter, Gladys became pregnant and gave birth to a daughter on June 1, 1926. Norma Jeane was Gladys third child. Although Gladys registered the surname Mortenson on Norma Jeane's birth certificate, using the name of her ex-husband instead of Gifford, it has been assumed for decades that Gifford was actually Marilyn Monroe's father.
Gifford was finally definitively proven to be Monroe's father through DNA testing in 2022. Although this card includes no warm salutation from the man that was indeed her father, it further complicates our understanding of the relationship, or what was believed to be the complete absence of a relationship with arguably the most important male figure in Monroe's life. Previous scholarship recounts Monroe's attempts to contact her father resulting in only bitter rejection and a broken heart, yet this card supports Berniece Miracles first-hand account and it is proof that he reached out to her in a time of need.

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

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

Lot 258: MARILYN MONROE: MEDICAL FILE
A medical file pertaining to cosmetic surgery performed on Marilyn Monroe. The file includes facial X-rays and doctors' notes from the office of Dr. Michael Gurdin, M.D., and the X-ray office of Drs. Conti and Steinberg. Dr. Gurdin's chart on Monroe begins on July 14, 1958, and lists the patient as Marilyn Miller with addresses in New York and Los Angeles.
The chief complaint listed is "chin deformity" and goes on to give a medical history that begins in 1950 and ends in 1962. Listed are a 1956 bout of neutropenia in England; 1957 ectopic pregnancy in New York; and 1950 cartilage implant in chin that the doctor observed had slowly begun to dissolve. Those with knowledge of the implant procedure have explained that this was done in association with a tip rhinoplasty, a procedure involving the tip of Monroe's nose only, not the bones.
The last entry is dated June 7, 1962, and reports a fall at between 2 and 3 a.m. resulting in swelling and tenderness of the nose. Monroe was brought to Dr. Gurdin by her psychoanalyst, Dr. Ralph Greenson. Monroe was referred to Drs. Conti and Steinberg for X-rays. For her visit to the radiologists she was given the alias "Miss Joan Newman," and that name appears on the paperwork with Monroe's Brentwood home address.
Six X-rays are in the folder: a frontal facial bones X-ray; a smaller X-ray that is a composite of the right and left sides of her nasal bones; and four small dental X-rays into the roof of Monroe's mouth, looking upward toward the nasal bones. The conclusion, written by Dr. Conti and dated June 7, 1962, is that there was no damage to Monroe's nose due to her fall. A more recent evaluation of the X-rays indicates a very minute hairline fracture of this bone. Monroe had turned 36 less than a week earlier. On June 8, the following day, Monroe was fired from the film Something's Got to Give (20th Century Fox, 1962). 9 x 12 inches

Lot 259: MARILYN MONROE: RECEIVED AND SENT LETTERS
From the Personal Files of Marilyn Monroe: Four letters received by the star on various topics. Two letters with dates in 1952 and 1953 are from an aspiring songwriter and singer by the name of Mrs. John H. Spurgeon. Another letter is from Harold Mirisch dated May 7, 1959. Another letter on letterhead from The First Baptist Church dated December 4, 1958 is from a man named Bill Lennon, requesting Marilyn's permission to write to the TV show "What's My Line?" and list his occupation as secretary to Marilyn Monroe. Included is a very direct letter to Lennon in response, reading in part, "Miss Monroe would not under any circumstances permit the use of her name in any misrepresentation." Also included, a carbon-copy of a letter addressed to "John" dated February 1, 1960 (likely designer John Moore) asking if he'd been advised by the Railway Express Company about a message left at the Beverly Hills Hotel for Marilyn that read, "The dress you expected from Talmack was destroyed in a plane fire." Handwritten annotations on the letter list a "Mr. Clemens, Head of Air Department," and a phone number for the claims department, not in Monroe's handwriting. Overall a very interesting look at the types of issues Monroe dealt with on a daily basis.

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

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

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

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

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

Lot 0952: PERSONAL HANDWRITTEN ACTORS STUDIO CLASS NOTES
A sheet of Marilyn Monroe's personal notes from her acting classes with Lee Strasberg at the Actors Studio in New York, NY, handwritten in pencil on stationery from The Towers of The Waldorf-Astoria in 1955 (Monroe took Actors Studio classes with Strasberg between April and September 1955).
The opening salutation and start of the letter "Dear Art" has been scratched out. 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.
This document was reproduced in the book Fragments: Poems, Intimate Notes, Letters by Marilyn Monroe, Edited by Stanley Buchthal and Bernard Comment (Farrar, Straus, and Giroux, New York, 2010).

Lot 0953: HANDWRITTEN ACTING EXERCISE DIALOGUE AND NOTES
A single sheet of lined yellow paper with dialogue and additional notes written out in pencil in Monroe's hand. This document was likely part of an acting exercise.

He told you I know he did/ If you'd only have given me a little longer - He was in love with me - we'd have been married you didn't want me to have him from the beginning/ you wouldn't let me wear those pretty things/ Even when I told you about the doll - you/ sent those people around/ He died! But he said/ he came back - Tell/ Me - tell me -."
The front and back of the page is then covered with small performance notes, including:
"The thought focus on partner not on word then let go of word"; "don't do with words & voice"; "Let go everything elastic keep the pick up lay on the horse"; and "to be as relaxed let go of mouth speech thought," among many others.

Six total, all original prints with a glossy finish; four taken the same day and two taken other days, all showing MM in an outdoor setting either alone or with Aviv Wardimon (who later changed his last name to 'Blackman'); according to his distant relatives who consigned this lot, he was a security guard at one of the movie studios (most probably 20th Century Fox) who evidently struck up a friendship with the then-starlet as these images seem to indicate; also included is one extra black and white snapshot of Wardimon with actor John Carroll (who is wearing western garb on a movie set) -- coincidentially, Monroe was living with Carroll and his wife at this time. (Please note there is handwriting in blue ink on the verso of some and a faint typed note on another.)

 Lot 143: MARILYN MONROE WORN BLACK COLOBUS COAT
A mid-1940s black colobus coat worn by Marilyn Monroe to the 1948 film premiere of The Emperor Waltz (Paramount, 1948). The coat has broad shoulders, a cordé collar, a satin lining, and a Jerrold's Van Nuys, Calif. label. Although the black colobus is currently on the endangered species list, it was quite fashionable in the 1940s. Monroe wrote in a letter to Grace Goddard dated December 3, 1944, "I found out that its [sic] possible to buy a Gold Coast Monkey Coat. I shall write to you about it later." The coat was gifted from Monroe to Jacquita M. Rigoni (Warren), who was the great-niece to Anne Karger, mother of Monroe's voice coach, Freddie Karger. Monroe had a close relationship with the family, and the coat has remained in their possession. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Jacqui Rigoni detailing the family's relationship to Monroe and the history of the coat.
The monkey species used to make this Marilyn Monroe monkey fur coat is on the Endangered Species list. U.S. Endangered Species Act regulations required by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service impose certain regulations on the sale of this coat. Please read the following carefully:
Please read the following carefully: The Marilyn Monroe monkey fur coat may be sold to a resident of California without requiring a Federal permit. A non-California resident may bid on this coat and if he or she were the winning bidder could apply for a Federal permit to remove the coat from the state of California. Julien’s has been advised that a Federal permit would likely be REFUSED by the governing offices. It is vehemently advised that non-residents of California DO NOT bid on this Marilyn Monroe owned monkey fur coat. If you bid on this lot and are unable to obtain a permit Julien’s has no liability and will be unable to refund you for your purchase.
A California resident who purchases this coat and later moves from California to another state would not be required to obtain a permit if he or she maintained ownership of the coat when changing state of residence. However, the owner would need to make sure there are no state regulations prohibiting the transfer of the coat from one state to another.
Estimate: $20,000 - $30,000 | Winning Bid: $32,000

Lot 144: MARILYN MONROE FAN FROM THE PRINCE AND THE SHOWGIRL
A vintage lace fan used by Marilyn Monroe in the film The Prince and the Showgirl (Warner Bros., 1957). The folding hand fan is used by Monroe in the ballroom scene in the film. The frame and guard are embellished with floral motif carvings embellished with pink, blue, and gold-metallic paint. The accompanying letter from the consignor explains that the fan was gifted by Monroe to William Louis George Le Brun, known as Louis Le Brun in the film industry, who was the Chief Production Accountant for Warner Bros. in the United Kingdom. When Monroe was taken ill while filming, Le Brun, who was responsible for overseeing the distribution of all finances, which involved the insurance and wellbeing of the cast and production team, stayed by her side. As a thank-you, Monroe gave him this fan, or more specifically gave the fan to his wife as an apology for keeping Le Brun from his family. At the time the fan was received several of the fan blades were broken, presumed to be from use during filming. The fan has remained in the possession of the Le Brun family since the gift was made by Monroe.

 Lot 155: 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.

Lot 158: MARILYN MONROE MEDICAL FILE
A medical file pertaining to cosmetic surgery performed on Marilyn Monroe. The file includes facial X-rays and doctors' notes from the office of Dr. Michael Gurdin, M.D., and the X-ray office of Drs. Conti and Steinberg. Dr. Gurdin's chart on Monroe begins on July 14, 1958, and lists the patient as Marilyn Miller with addresses in New York and Los Angeles. The chief complaint listed is "chin deformity" and goes on to give a medical history that begins in 1950 and ends in 1962. Listed are a 1956 bout of neutropenia in England; 1957 ectopic pregnancy in New York; and 1950 cartilage implant in chin that the doctor observed had slowly begun to dissolve. Those with knowledge of the implant procedure have explained that this was done in association with a tip rhinoplasty, a procedure involving the tip of Monroe's nose only, not the bones. The last entry is dated June 7, 1962, and reports a fall at between 2 and 3 a.m. resulting in swelling and tenderness of the nose. Monroe was brought to Dr. Gurdin by her psychoanalyst, Dr. Ralph Greenson. Monroe was referred to Drs. Conti and Steinberg for X-rays. For her visit to the radiologists she was given the alias "Miss Joan Newman," and that name appears on the paperwork with Monroe's Brentwood home address. Six X-rays are in the folder: a frontal facial bones X-ray; a smaller X-ray that is a composite of the right and left sides of her nasal bones; and four small dental X-rays into the roof of Monroe's mouth, looking upward toward the nasal bones. The conclusion, written by Dr. Conti and dated June 7, 1962, is that there was no damage to Monroe's nose due to her fall. A more recent evaluation of the X-rays indicates a very minute hairline fracture of this bone. Monroe had turned 36 less than a week earlier. On June 8, the following day, Monroe was fired from the film Something's Got to Give (20th Century Fox, 1962).
