TITLE: The Making Of a Legend OTHER TITLES: Augmented title: Photographs of M. Monroe by A. De Dienes PERSONAL AUTHOR: Jones,-Malcolm JOURNAL NAME: Newsweek SOURCE: Newsweek v 140 no7 Aug 12 2002. p. 59 PUBLICATION YEAR: 2002 PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: il por ISSN: 0028-9604 LANGUAGE OF ARTICLE: English ABSTRACT: Many of the photographs in Marilyn, an extravagantly produced book of Andre de Dienes's work with Marilyn Monroe, have never been seen before. Although a lot of the first-rate images are corny by current standards, even the tritest pose is sincerely affecting. Best of all, the beautiful girl in front of the camera does not look like Marilyn yet. Untrained and untutored, she smiles too broadly, and she does not quite know how to pose yet. De Deines's later pictures of Monroe are less interesting, but he always found a sweetness in her that other photographers missed.

TITLE: Becoming Marilyn PERSONAL AUTHOR: Gates,-David JOURNAL NAME: Newsweek SOURCE: Newsweek v 140 no7 Aug 12 2002. p. 54-8 PUBLICATION YEAR: 2002 PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: por ISSN: 0028-9604 LANGUAGE OF ARTICLE: English ABSTRACT: Marilyn Monroe, who died 40 years ago, belongs ineradicably to the post-World War II world, along with the H-bomb and the tail fin. Starting in 1945, when she was 19 and unknown, a photographer called Andre de Dienes took thousands of pictures of her, many of which have rarely been seen by anyone. What were once cheesecake shots have assumed documentary weight: the images, which capture Norma Jeane as she mutates into "Marilyn," make her seem as remote and historical as a Gibson Girl. Photographs of Monroe from a newly discovered cache of shots taken by de Dienes accompany the text.

Monroe's principal gift was her talent as an comedienne. Her vulnerability was so overstated in the persona that she created that it was actually a caricature. If she was 25 now, and had the benefit of the women's movement and of shifting perceptions, she would not have been Marilyn the Myth. In fact, if she was still alive today, the world would have treated her quite cruelly as she aged.

Last October, the two-day Christie's auction of Monroe's personal property featured around 1,000 items, which sold for a total of $13.4 million. As this sale made clear, almost anything associated with the actress is a hot commodity. Photographs of the star continue to fetch high prices because only a handful of images by photographers are normally offered on the market every year, and many contemporary artworks that portray Monroe are also in demand. Moreover, demand for Monroe's image for commercial use is greater than ever, according to Scott Whiteleather, vice president of CMG Worldwide, of which the Monroe estate is now part. The prices paid for images of the actress, for fan paintings, and for images of artists who have portrayed Monroe are discussed.

Things that the actress actually used--her toaster, tables and chairs, books, television, dresses and shoes, knickknacks and cheap mementos, inexpensive jewelry, and, most revealing of all, annotated scripts and scribble notepads--were sold at Christie's in New York in October 1999 for a total of $13.5 million. Monroe's suicide in 1962, at the age of 36, shocked the nation, and all her personal effects were left, not to her mother, Gladys, who was alive at the time of her death, but to her sometime acting coach, Lee Strasberg. The two-day auction of 576 lots revealed everything about the mute pathos of material goods, the sadness of used goods, Hollywood and American life, and the actress herself.
