I would like to know all of the issues Marilyn was in. I know she was in quite a few, not just including covers. I'm looking for all of them, please.

December 1958 'My Wife Marilyn' is an article that Arthur Miller wrote to accompany the 1958 session that Marilyn did for Life with Richard Avedon, posing as different actresses from the past. It was posted on another group. I have a copy of the text here, though not with the pics - I've added them separately, so you can get the feel of it.

Thank you for that wonderful article. I had read about it in, I can't be sure where right now, maybe Spotos's biography of Marilyn. This is what I have saved: I don't know if this was factual or not.

Richard Avedon had photographed her in a viriety of costumes for LIFE, as Theda Bara, Clara Bow, Marlene Dietrich, Lillian Russell and Jean Harlow. Arthur contributed a lovingly elegiac and eulogistic tribute to accompany the Avedon pictures, praising Marilyn's ingenuity, her sense of play, "spontaneous joy she takes in anything a child does, (and) her quick sympathy and respect for old people...The child in her catches the fun and the promise, and the old person in her the mortality." The best of the lot, he said, was the homage to Harlow, whom Marilyn conveyed "not so much by wit as by her deep sympathy for that actress's tragic life...She has identified herself with what was naive, what was genuine lure and sexual truth." But when Marilyn read the draft of his comments she felt depressed. Why the emphasis on naivete, on "lure and sexual truth"? Was that all she had to offer? In this she reacted neurotically, for Arthur's essay is one of the most appreciated and laudatory ever written of her

Marilyn telephones Arthur on Friday in NY regarding the essay. On their conversation nothing is known. But that evening he wrote her of his problems, and the letter has survived. Addressing her as his"Darling Girl", he wrote that she was his ideal, and he then apologized for the things he had not done (perhaps in reference to his lack of material support in their marriage) and for those he had (a possible allusion to the infamous notebook entry). He added that he believed he as making important discoveries in the regular psychotheraputic sessions he had resumed with a Dr. Lowenstein, which he believed was illuminating the blockage in his emotional life. He justified the reservations she had about the LIFE article (which they evidently discussed on the telephone) by stating his belief that his points were good and interesting. The letter concluded with a plea for her love and her understanding of his mental confusion.

Thanks for that interesting piece Nettie. It is indeed from Spoto's book.

Arthur's article may be called 'My Wife Marilyn', but actually it is an appreciation of her as an artist. It is very insightful into Marilyn's work as a model. With photographers like Avedon, she was able to express herself more freely than within the movies of that time. To me, that session shows her untapped acting potential more than most - she really inhabits the personas of those women.

Perhaps when he talked about her 'lure' and 'sexual truth', she thought that he meant this was all she had to offer. But after all, the whole point of the project was to portray the sex symbols of the past. I think this shows you how fragile her self-esteem was by this point, and the gulf of misunderstanding that was growing between Marilyn and Arthur.

Of course, I do think that Mr Spoto is a very clever writer. But he does twist things a little bit sometimes. Throughout his book, he seems intent on portraying Arthur as cold, manipulative and patronising, and Marilyn as a helpless little victim. Personally, I think this is an over-simplification, and it does them both an injustice.

I remember reading in some book that Milton Greene asked Marilyn just before the wedding to Arthur if she wanted to cancel the whole thing, that they could just drive away, making you think that Marilyn wasn't sure she wanted to marry Arthur. She supposedly replied that they might as well go on and not disappoint all the guests that were there.

I have to put these pictures in here, I hope it's ok since it's not a picture forum. But look at how happy they were.

Yes, they both look really happy. (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

I think Marilyn was in a nervous state before the wedding, even more than usual. She was converting to Judaism, Arthur was being prosecuted, a reporter died on the way to their press conference. It was a stressful time. And in a way, all her marriages were in haste.

I think it's possible that she did have doubts, but in a book I read about Arthur (Martin Gottfried's biography), the author said that the Greenes were exaggerating. So, I'm not sure.

Thanks Nettie! I've never seen those wonderful pictures, they look so incredibly happy, and I couldn't help but smile. And you couldn't be more right, Tara. I think all brides are nervous before their wedding.
