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, signature or imprint are transferred to the buyer with this sale. Special shipping arrangements will apply.
Estimate: $4,000 - $6,000

Lot 765: Marilyn Monroe 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 Marilyn Monroe created from the original concrete impression at the Chinese Theatre which is, by far, the most photographed imprint square in the TCL Chinese Theatre forecourt, honored with the opening of her film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. She originally wanted them to dot the “I” in her name with a diamond, but theatre management suggested that someone would steal the diamond and suggested an earring be placed instead. A short time later someone over night came along and attempted to steal the earring. The top broke off, but the back remains firmly implanted in the cement to this day. 42.5 x 42.25 in. Inscribed, “Marilyn Monroe” and then “Prefer Blondes” as half of the Gentlemen Prefer Blondes title started on Jane Russell’s square and finished on Monroe’s. Marilyn’s “I” is dotted by a faux diamond imbedded in the square. 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 Marilyn Monroe name, signature or imprint are transferred to the buyer with this sale.

Le 6 février 1956, Marilyn Monroe et Laurence Olivier retrouvent l'actrice Susan Strasberg dans les coulisses du théâtre Cort Theatre de New York, après la représentation de la pièce "Le journal d'Anne Franck", dans laquelle joue Susan.
Laurence Olivier avait quitté Londres le 5 février, en prenant l'avion pour New York; il ne reste à New York qu'une semaine, en partie pour discuter avec Marilyn pour le prochain tournage du "Prince et la Danseuse". Il quittera New York le 11 février pour regagner Londres.

Les critiques de The Prince and the Showgirl

Le prince et la danseuse
Lecritiques 

The New York Times
Nous nous devons de vous dire que Miss Monroe n'ôte jamais sa robe et que Mr. Rattigan ne sort jamais du cercle vicieux dans lequel il a laissé sa maigre intrigue tomber. (...) Il n'a pas permis au film de faire davantage que de tourner en rond, encore et encore, pour s'achever sur une note triste.

New York Herald Tribune
A condition de ne pas le prendre au sérieux, 'Le Prince et la danseuse' est extrêmement divertissant. C'est assurément ce que voulait son auteur, Terrence Rattigan. Il s'amuse, nous offrant deux heures de distraction, et les acteurs ont un plaisir immense à jouer cette farce. Ils s'efforcent de garder leur sérieux, mais une étincelle dans leurs yeux suffit à les trahir.
Dans le cas de Laurence Olivier, cette étincelle doit vaincre l'obstacle d'un épais monocle pour être perceptible, et elle y parvient. Un humour subtil caractèrise son interprétation. (...) Le rôle de Marilyn est bien moins nuancé. Son personnage est celui d'une danseuse de music-hall aimable et sotte, mais rien de plus. Tout au long du film, aux rires, à l'innocence puérile, aux gloussements de plaisir et aux moues ennuyées de Miss Monroe, succèdent les roulements d'yeux grands comme des soucoupes, sans oublier les très plaisantes ondulations d'un corps tout en courbes.

New York World-Telegram and Sun
Les hauts et les bas imprévisibles qui ont marqué jusqu'à présent la carrière d'actrice de Marilyn Monroe, promettent de déboucher sur un triomphe dans 'Le prince et la danseuse'. (...) Cette charmante comédie n'a d'égale que la surprise que nous révèle Marilyn. Partenaire principal et réalisateur, Laurence Olivier révèle des dons auxquels les précédents films de l'actrice ne nous avaient pas habitués. Sa gaieté communicative est d'une folle espièglerie. Elle joue les scènes d'amour comme s'il s'agissait de jeux de petite fille. Elle interprète cette comédie bouffonne sans effort et tourne les moments solennels à la plaisanterie.

The Los Angeles Times
C'est, j'en suis sûr, la meilleure oeuvre cinématographique de Miss Monroe. Sous la direction de Laurence Olivier, elle révèle un véritable talent comique. Elle prouve également qu'elle peut désormais attirer l'attention autrement qu'avec sa célèbre démarche chaloupée.

New York Post
En tant qu'individu et actrice comique, Marilyn Monroe n'a jamais semblé aussi sûre d'elle-même. Elle réussit à faire rire sans sacrifier la véritable Marilyn à la comédie; c'est bien évidemment le propre à de grands artistes, talentueux et expérimentés. La surprise est d'autant plus agréable que Marilyn Monroe a été jusqu'à présent moitié actrice, moitié phénomène.

P comme Parkside House

Parkside House
manoir où logea Marilyn et Arthur Miller
durant leur séjour en Angleterre,
du 13 juin au 20 novembre 1956

1956_parkside_house_maison2 

Parkside House est une propriété qui se trouve à Englefield Green, à Egham, qui est une petite commune dans le Surrey du Nord en Angleterre, à 50 km de la capitale Londres et près du grand parc Windsor de la Reine.
Les Olivier (Laurence Olivier et sa femme Vivien Leigh) vivaient à Belgrave Square, à deux pas de Buckingham Palace, à Londres.  
Dans les années 1950, Parkside House était la propriété de Lord Drogheda et la maison était gérée par Charles Garrett Ponsonby Moore et sa femme, la pianiste Joan Moore. La maison fut louée par les studios 125 000 francs par semaine (les "francs" de l'époque) durant toute la période où Marilyn Monroe restait en Angleterre, soit un peu plus de cinq mois.

Parkside House est une somptueuse maison de campagne, un grand manoir de style Georgien du XVIIIème siècle, à l'abri des regards indiscrets, dont l'accés est privé, bien fermé par un grand portail blanc et caché par Wick Lane, un petit chemin de terre qui menait directement au parc de Windsor.

1956-07-23-surrey-1  1956-07-23-surrey-2 

La maison contient des poutres en chêne en intérieur et comprend, entre autres, deux salons, un boudoir, une bibliothèque, onze chambres et deux salles de bain. La spacieuse demeure est entourée d'un grand parc magnifique de quatre hectares avec une roseraie et un potager. A cette époque, Parkside était en charge du ravitaillement du Covent Garden Market avec un potager leur permettant de produire des produits frais. 
On avait mis des volets spéciaux aux fenêtres de la chambre de Marilyn; le personnel ayant été prévenu que Marilyn ne pouvait dormir que dans l'obscurité la plus totale, afin d'amoindrir ses problèmes d'insomnies. La chambre à coucher avait été redécorée et meublée intégralement de blanc (comme dans l'appartement de Marilyn à Manhattan) par Milton Greene: lit, rideaux, meubles, tapis ainsi que les murs, repeints en blanc. Le majordome et le cuisinier furent congédiés pour avoir révélé ces secrets à la presse.

Arthur Miller choisit la pièce de musique comme salle de travail qui comprenait un piano, un bureau élégant et dont les fenêtres (grandes, de style Français) donnaient sur la grande pelouse verte.

Le personnel était composé de la gouvernante Dolly Stiles, la domestique Mabel Whittington, la cuisinière Carolina Ferreira et le jardinier femme Florrie Mitchell. Un ex-policier de Scotland Yard suivait Marilyn dans tous ses déplacements; et un chauffeur était en charge de mener Marilyn dans tous ses déplacements, professionnels et privés. 

  • Marilyn et son mari Arthur Miller arrivent à Londres le 14 juillet 1956 . Après une série de poses photographiques à l'aéroport d'Idlewild et une conférence de presse dans le salon de l'aéroport, en compagnie du couple Laurence Olivier - Vivien Leigh, ils se rendent tous à Parkside House où ils posent devant la maison pour les photographes. Le lendemain, le 15 juillet, Marilyn et Laurence Olivier donnent une conférence de presse à l'hôtel Savoy de Londres. Puis, de retour à Parkside, elle acceuille les photographes pour une série de clichés d'elle et Arthur dans le jardin. Quelques semaines plus tard, Marilyn pose pour des essais coiffure dans le jardin sous l'objectif de Milton Greene.

  • On sait peu de choses sur le séjour de Marilyn en Angleterre; les faits connus proviennent de Colin Clark, le troisième assistant du réalisateur Laurence Olivier sur le film 'The Prince and the showgirl' ('Le Prince et la danseuse'), qui notait tout dans un journal intime (il écrivit deux livres des décennies plus tard: "The Prince, the Showgirl, and Me" et "Une semaine avec Marilyn" ); mais bon nombre de personnes mettent en doute la parole de Clark car le personnel de Parkside mais aussi les villageois qui ont été en contact avec Marilyn, apportent une toute autre version des faits.
    > La veuve du chauffeur de Marilyn, a raconté posséder des photographies de Marilyn et d'Arthur Miller, offertes par la star en remerciement des services rendus par son mari. Mais son mari n'est jamais mentionné dans aucun des livres de Clark. Elle ajoute aussi que l'anecdote de Clark, qui affirmait que Marilyn s'était baignée nue dans la rivière près de Windsor (River Thames) n'est pas crédible, à cause de la très mauvaise qualité de l'eau à cette époque.
    > Patrick O'Shea racontera que son beau-père Frank Parker et sa mère Dorothy, ont été acheter une paire de chaussures dans la boutique Woodmans au 42 High Street à Egham. Le chauffeur de Marilyn était venu les chercher chez eux, avec un bout de papier où était noté la taille de pieds de Marilyn, car elle avait besoin d'une paire de chaussure de tennis. En remettant la boîte de chaussures, Frank Parker demanda s'il était possible d'avoir un mot de Marilyn, pour savoir si les chaussures convenaient. Et quelques jours plus tard, le chauffeur leur apporta une enveloppe contenant une photographie signée de Arthur et Marilyn en bicyclette à Windsor Park, sur laquelle elle portait la paire de tennis (à la stricte condition que la photo devait rester privée et ne surtout pas être communiqué à la presse) accompagnée de ce mot:

1956_windsorpark 

Il semble que la bicyclette soit celle offerte par le journal 'Daily Sketch' lors d'une conférence de presse donnée au Savoy Hotel, le lendemain de son arrivée le 15 juillet. Il avait d'ailleurs été reporté plus tard, dans les pages de ce journal, que c'était les membres du personnel qui utilisaient le vélo. Marilyn et Arthur ont pourtant été photographiés dans le parc de Windsor en train de faire du vélo le 16 août 1956:

 1956_08_16_england_windsor_park_01 1956_08_16_england_windsor_park_02 1956_08_16_england_windsor_park_03

  • Durant le séjour de Marilyn et d'Arthur, un choeur d'étudiants est venu chanter des chansons gaillardes, mais aussi le 23ème psaume, devant la maison. D'ailleurs, bon nombre de fans et des gens du comté (en particulier des enfants et des adolescents) attendaient devant les grilles blanches du portail afin d'apercevoir Marilyn:

1956_07_15_parkside_010_1 1956_07_15_parkside_010_2  

  • Mais Marilyn se montrait peu publiquement, elle restait enfermée avec Arthur à Parkside. D'ailleurs, quinze jours après le début du tournage du film "The Prince and the Showgirl", le 27 août 1956, Arthur Miller est reparti aux Etats-Unis (à New York). Et durant l'absence de son mari, Marilyn restera cloîtrer pendant une semaine chez elle, prétextant une "crise de colite" et la production s'est même interrompue jusqu'au retour anticipé de Miller. C'est durant cette semaine où l'on sait finalement peu de choses sur les occupations de Marilyn, que se base l'histoire de Colin Clark.
  • C'est aussi durant son séjour à Parkside que Marilyn va vivre l'un des moments les plus difficiles de sa vie privée.
    Après une soirée, elle avait eu l'attention attirée par un carnet de notes ouvert qu'avait laissé Arthur Miller sur une table. Marilyn y avait lu les commentaires de son mari, qui étaient très blessant à son égard et où il y évoquait sa déception. Lee et Paula Strasberg, qui étaient présents tous les deux en Angleterre, en furent les premiers informés; Marilyn leur raconta que Arthur avait écrit qu'elle l'avait profondément déçu; qu'il avait cru épouser un ange mais qu'il s'était trompé; que sa première femme l'avait laissé tombé mais que Marilyn avait fait encore pire. Qu'Olivier trouvait qu'elle était une emmerdeuse et une salope et qu'Arthur ne savait pas quoi répondre à cela. Arthur Miller s'excusa auprès de Marilyn et lui dit qu'il avait seulement eu besoin de se défouler, mais Marilyn ne lui pardonna jamais vraiment, même si le couple resta ensemble.
    Il faut néanmoins souligner le fait que le tournage ne se passait pas comme prévu: les relations entre Marilyn et Laurence Olivier étaient de plus en plus houleuses. Et Olivier avait prit d'affection Miller, se comparant au dramaturge, car Olivier rencontrait des problèmes de couple depuis plusieurs années avec sa femme Vivien Leigh.
    A Bob Josephi, un ami du couple Miller dans le Connecticut, Marilyn lui dit que le sens de cette note était "Mon Dieu, j'ai épousé la même femme!", c'est à dire que Miller avait perçu chez Marilyn les mêmes défauts que chez sa première femme Mary Slattery. Et Marilyn était d'autant plus désespérée que Miller avait "haï" sa première épouse. Plusieurs années après, Marilyn affirmait que dans cette note, Miller la traitait de "putain".
    Cette note serait restée en possession de Paula Strasberg pendant des années. Miller n'a jamais fait de commentaires, mais dans sa pièce "Après la Chute", deux ans après la mort de Marilyn, le personnage principal, qui est fortement inspiré par Marilyn Monroe, tombe sur une note qui la bouleverse.
  • La majorité du film "My week with Marilyn" a été tournée en 2011 dans les lieux mêmes de tournage du film "The prince and the showgirl", aux studios de Pinewood, mais aussi dans les lieux fréquentés par Marilyn: Hatfield House, au château de Windsor, à l'université d'Eton et à Parkside House. Le réalisateur Simon Curtis racontera: "C'est un endroit vraiment magnifique. Nous avons tourné la scène dans laquelle Marilyn découvre le carnet d'Arthur Miller, qu'elle lit avec horreur, exactement sur le même escalier que celui sur lequel Marilyn s'était alors assise. C'était une impression incroyable".
