President Kennedy's Birthday Gala

May 19, 1962 (New York)
(Leave your comments, please)

       Happy Birthday, Mr. President is a variant on the traditional Happy Birthday to You song. This version was originally sung by Marilyn Monroe to then-President of the United States John F. Kennedy.

       President Kennedy celebrated his forty-fifth birthday on May 19, 1962 at Madison Square Garden. Over 15,000 people attended along with numerous celebrities, including Marilyn Monroe. Monroe's dress was noted for being flesh colored with 2500 rhinestones sewn into it. The dress was so tight-fitting that Monroe had to be literally sewn into it once she had dressed. It was designed by Jean Louis.

        Peter Lawford was at the event that night to introduce Marilyn. He made fun of Monroe's lateness by giving her an obviously long introduction (and she did not go on stage). She finally came on stage in the middle of another attempt to introduce her and Lawford introduced her as the "late Marilyn Monroe."


       Monroe's daring delivery, her racy dress, and her general image as a sex symbol made the President's response humorous when he said, "I can now retire from politics after having had Happy Birthday sung to me in such a sweet, wholesome way."

       The song and Monroe's performance have been remembered for numerous reasons. First, it was one of her last major public appearances (Monroe died August 5, 1962). In addition, there are persistent rumors that President Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe had had an affair, giving Monroe's performance another layer of meaning. Monroe's dress has become famous as a symbol of the song, selling in 1999 at auction in New York for over US$1.26 million.


******************** Happy Birthday, Mr President ********************

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

Ray Anthony Party

August 3, 1952 (Hollywood, California)
(Leave your comments, please)

       Big Band leader Ray Anthony recorded a song, "Marilyn," written by Ervin Drake and Jimmy Shirl. Marilyn attended a party thrown by her studio at bandleader Anthony's home, at which, coached by Mickey Rooney, Marilyn played the drums.

        A helicopter clattered to earth beside the Hollywood swimming pool of bandleader Ray Anthony. The downdraft swept chairs and tables into the water, ruining the effect of thousands of floating gardenias. Marilyn descended from the helicopter in a flaming red dress that offended everyone except the photographers. She was there for a ceremony so tasteless that it appalled even the public relations man who organised it - of a song called "Marilyn"



************* My Marilyn *************

An angel in lace,
A fabulous face,
That's no exaggeration,
That's my Marilyn.

No gal, I believe,
Beginning with Eve,
Could weave a fascination
like my Marilyn.

She made me a poet,
Thinking up romantic themes,
Though she may not know it,
she's all mine in my dreams!

I've planned everything,
The church and the ring,
The one who doesn't know it yet
Is Marilyn.

She hasn't said "Yes"
I have to confess:
I haven't kissed, or even met
My Marilyn.

But if luck is with me
She'll be my bride forevermore;
I'll be marryin', carryin' Marilyn through my door!

Person to Person

April 8, 1955 (Connecticut)
(Leave your comments, please)

       Person to Person was an immensely popular television program in the United States that ran from 1953 to 1961. Well-respected news reporter Edward R. Murrow hosted it, interviewing celebrities in their homes. Guest included then Marilyn Monroe at the Connecticut home of Marilyn´s business associate, Milton Greene. They asked -and were granted- permission to take candid snapshots of Hollywood´s nº 1 siren for their own files. Marilyn assumed a succession of beguiling poses, shutters clicked steadily for two hours.

       In 1953, Murrow launched a second weekly TV show — a series of celebrity interviews entitled Person to Person. Just as Murrow had nearly single-handedly pioneered TV news journalism, with Person to Person he also set the standard for celebrity interviews, producing a format that is still followed.

Red Velvet Session, Tom Kelley

May 27, 1949 (Hollywood, California)
(Leave your comments, please)

       It´s a hot autumn afternoon in late ´40s Hollywood, the sky is a sparkling blue, the sun beating down hot. Photographer Tom Kelley, working as a Associated Press Photographer, is driving down Sunset Boulevard, when he hears breaks screaming and metal crashing. There is a five-car pile-up right outside the La Rue Restaurant.

       He pulls his car over to the curb and stops to take a look. No one is hurt, but as Kelley is about to drive away, something catches his eye. A priest is gesturing widly to the blonde who has rear-ended him. The girl (
only 22-years old) is garishly dressed in a law-cut, red-and-white polka-dot sundress that´s two sizes too small, and very tall red high-heels. Kelley, unable to resist, shuts off his motor, jumps out of the car and is on his way across the street to investigate.

       Kelley puts his hand in his pocket, pulls out a $5 bill and says:
       - "Leave the car here, and take a cab. Call the garage later. Pay me back when you back". And he gives her his business card.

        The two-hour session produced the immortal photos "A New Wrinkle" and "Golden Dreams," photos that sold millions of calendars worldwide and launched Marilyn into the hearts of countless fans.
      
         In 1951,
John Baumgarth creates a calendar featuring a nudie photo of a young and unknown Marilyn Monroe, with the words Your Advertisement Here underneath. It becomes one of the most sought-after pieces of schwag ever. the John Baumgarth Co. sold 6,000,000 copies of it, most of them after Marilyn became famous. The company cleared around $750,000 on the deal.
       
          On March 13, 1952, an article published in the Los Angeles Times revealed that Marilyn was the girl from the famous "Golden Dreams" calendar. Marilyn admited it was her and that she felt nothing was wrong with doing so, that she needed money badly.

        In 1953, when the movie studio first learned that the nude pinup hanging in gas stations from coast to coast was none other than its rising star – it was something of a scandal. The press assailed the blonde bombshell with questions. Was it true she had posed with "nothing on"? "Nothin" on but the radio," she replied with a guileless giggle.

        At the end of 1953 a new men's magazine appeared on the newsstands. It was an adult magazine targeted to a sophisticated urban male audience. The magazine advocated a philosophy that was very new to the postwar 50's. It was that sex is a natural, wholesome and healthy human act -- not something to hide or be embarrassed about. Sex was an activity a normal single man might share with the girl next door.

        The first issue of Playboy magazine sold over 54,000 copies -- a surprising number for a new magazine with no advance publicity. The profits from this first edition furnished the funding to continue publishing for a few more months. Indeed, Hugh Hefner did not date the magazine because he was uncertain there would be a second issue. He didn't know the magazine would become an icon of America's cultural history.

        The startling sales of that first Playboy edition can be attributed to Hefner's good fortune of finding an exceptional centerpiece photo to lure America's males to the newsstand. Kelley's calendar photo of the nude Marilyn Monroe was that image - the image that launched the magazine that brought sex out of the closet into the glaring light of day.

        Hefner bought one photo from Kelley, published it as his first centerfold, and American culture has not been the same since. Marilyn Monroe and Hugh Hefner showed us that sex is as natural as eating and sleeping - and maybe even fun and a little frivolous. Sex became more than mere procreation - a seismic shift in attitude for the dark, repressed 50s.

           Mr. Kelley died Sunday in Cedars-Sinai Medical Center at 72. He had Cancer.
