I've heard some horror stories from some of my MM friends who started collecting like 20 years ago when you couldn't get almost anything Marilyn in Finland and there was no internet. Collecting was so much more difficult (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wacko.gif) I belong to the internet/Amazon/Ebay generation who have never had that problem in collectin MM (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)



Oh, I lived those horror years in the eighties, and actually most of my Marilyn-books I bought then, some of them from London, but most in Finland, starting -84, I think the first book I bought was Janice Anderson's: Marilyn, and soon after that Bert Stern's Last Sitting. Actually in the mid- and late-80's there were quite a lot of MM-books in Akateeminen/Suomalainen Kirjakauppa (bookstores). And I haven't learned to use E-Bay or Amazon yet ...

That's pretty interesting! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/blink.gif) Well, I wouldn't know for a fact what it was like to be a MM collector in Finland in the 80's since I wasn't even born until the 90's (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) But I've been told it was pretty lame in a sence that there wasn't lots of stuff that you could buy anyway.

Nettie, that's my favorite too! It's between that and Norman Rosten's book.
But I have never heard of 'A Film Journal.' Is it the same as Eve Arnold's appreciation book?

No Alex. They are two different books. I love The Film Jornal because of the quality of all the images, Marilyn's and many other's. Here's the cover and info:


Books in Canada
Over a period of fifty years, Eve Arnold has photographed movie stars both on and off location—at the studio and at home, at work and at play. In the 1950s, film companies embarked on a programme of hiring professional photographers to record and tell the story of the making of a feature film in pictures and in words. This was very different from the studios' former photographic programme which dealt mostly in fantasies. The whole purpose of this exercise was to produce a photo essay of high standard to promote the film when it was released.
At the time, Miss Arnold remembers, her photographing sessions were particularly difficult because she was using the square-format Rollei camera—an awkward camera to compose with. Pictures seem designed best in rectangles because the eye sees that way. The Rollei was the camera of choice in the fifties. Historically, it bridged the period from the even larger studio-format camera to the smaller and more flexible 35mm camera.
Eve Arnold was born in Philadelphia to immigrant Russian parents. She studied photography with Alexei Brodovitch, and became associated with magnum Pictures in 1950. She was based in the Americas in the 1950s and moved to England in 1962. This, her twelfth book, covers some of her intimate experiences over thirty years in both countries, mainly during the 1950s. She doesn't keep many secrets, and some of her revelations and opinions from her body of still photos and texts show the unseen side of Hollywood when it was still glamorous. Few stars escape her poison pen.
The first movie personality photographed in depth was Marlene Dietrich in 1952—a consummate professional who stipulated that she was to have a final right of approval. Vetting the pictures, she wrote instructions on each in eyebrow pencil: "Narrow down the chin, cut down the waist, remove the dimple from the knee, the ankle should be slimmer." Bob Capa at Harper's Bazaar said that Miss Arnold's work fell "between Marlene Dietrich's legs and the bitter lines of migratory potato pickers."
Joan Crawford was another fading star photographed by Miss Arnold in the late 1950s. The first time they met the actress insisted on being phtographed in the nude. But sadly something happens to flesh after fifty and the photographs were not a success. Threatening the photographer that she would never work in Hollywood again, the photos were confiscated. Miss Arnold recalls too the early life of Joan Crawford who grew up as a prostitute in her mother's establishment and started her film career doing pornographic films. These films are rumoured still to be on sale in Germany.
Marilyn Monroe was photographed by Eve Arnold during the 1960 filming of The Misfits. Miss Monroe had not merely a gift for the still camera but a genius for it. She remembers how all the stars on the film were misfits: Marilyn Monroe, John Huston, Clark Gable, Montgomery Clift—all a little connected to catastrophe and burnt out. They were actors playing out the allegory, then seeing it in life—somewhat like being at your own funeral. Returning to New York, Miss Arnold saw Marilyn Monroe for a full week while she went through literally hundreds of phtotographs taken of her for a European editor planning an article. Wearing a black diaphanous robe with nothing underneath the star had a hair brush in her hand and asked whether the editor minded if she brushed her hair. "No, of course not," said the woman. When she looked up Marilyn was brushing her pubic hair.
Grace Kelly in Monaco, imperious and impervious, barely tolerating the camera crew for a television imitation of Jacqueline Kennedy showing the White House; Simone Signoret sharing confidences; bantering with the bingeing Richard Burton, newly married to Elizabeth Taylor, on the set of Beckett in 1963; photographing the extraordinatry fight scenes between Anne Bancroft and Peter Finch in The Pumpkin Eater; tolerating a publicity-hungry Andy Warhol directing Harlot in 1964; and sparring with a fastidious John Huston, acting in and directing The Bible in 1965; all this is recounted in Miss Arnold's Film Journal. Jean Simmons boasts, "I'm not a constipated actress anymore," in Life at the Top; and an aging seventy-seven-year-old Charlie Chaplin looked nothing like the Little Tramp of his youth until he danced on the set of A Countess from Hong Kong. "Suddenly the world was transformed and it was magic. He was the Little Tramp all over again. Bravo."
There are interesting insights in Miss Arnold's memoir. It is light reading. But the photos are worth the price of admission—black and white, poignant, and all capturing an off-guard moment, full of character: Isabella Rossellini studying lines for Blue Velvet; Mikhail Baryshnikov playing a game with a dog; whores from Mexico City recruited by John Huston for Under the Volcano; Laurence Olivier trying to remember his lines in Clash of the Titans; Sean Connery being fitted with a wig for The Great Train Robbery; George Scott rehearsing Patton; Anouk Aimée reviewing her lines for Justine; and Rex Harrison having trouble with a parrot in Dr. Dolittle.
Miss Arnold has had innumerable exhibitions of her work—notably in The National Portrait Gallery and the Barbican in London; the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, the Gallery of Photography in Dublin, and the International Center of Photography in New York. It is not surprising—because it is as a candid photographer that Miss Arnold will long be remembered. At the end of her book there is a loving study of the author/photographer by Henri Cartier Bresson taken in London in 1998. She has earned this honour.
Christopher Ondaatje (Books in Canada)

From Library Journal
This book highlights a little-known aspect of longtime Magnum member Arnold's career: her photojournalism and publicity work on over 20 films, ranging from Joan Crawford's The Best of Everything (1959) to John Huston's Under the Volcano (1984), with a few stray celebrity shots included as a bonus. Sadly, this work has been little seen, perhaps because so many of the films covered here were box office bombs. The book captures Arnold's gift for establishing intimacy with her subjects. Most memorable is a portrait of a bone-weary Anne Bancroft on the set of The Pumpkin Eater, taken just days after President Kennedy's assassination. Arnold's reflections on the films are jottings and impressions, not fully developed essays. Still, readers may enjoy some gossipy tidbits, as when, moments after meeting Arnold, an aging, inebriated Joan Crawford insisted that she be photographed in the nude (the photographs were taken but don't appear in the book). Movie buffs will enjoy some film history photographic footnotes, like the one of a young Vanessa Redgrave accompanied by toddlers Joely and Natasha Richardson, now both respected actresses. The best shots: a young, intense, T-shirt clad Paul Newman attending a 1955 Actor's Studio class and a classic shot of film legends Montgomery Clift and Marilyn Monroe in intense concentration before a take on The Misfits. This black-and-white photo collection deserves a place on the shelves of large popular film history collections. Stephen Rees, Levittown Regional Lib., PA

I'm having a garage sale tomorrow and I might sell 'Coffee with Marilyn' and the Lena Pepitone book. I don't really like the 'Coffee' book too much and never look at it & of course I hate the Pepitone book...But I'm wondering if it's a bad descision to sell them? I've heard of some fans selling part of their collections and regretting it later on, so I don't know...

I became an MM fan in the 80s too, it was around the time Goddess (Anthony Summers) came out, so there was a lot of interest in Marilyn (and the Kennedys.) But with no internet, I didn't know any other fans - and couldn't afford to buy much. Mainly I collected postcards and owned about five books and records, the rest was borrowed from the library. I didn't have TV either so depended on friends to record films for me. They thought I was a little nuts I'm sure. It was only when I began working on The Mmm Girl that I started collecting again really. Still my discovery of Marilyn in the 80s was a lovely time. The difficulty in accessing stuff meant that whatever I found meant the world to me.

It's so difficult even to find stuff like this on Ebay!]
