I really don't buy that is the silverware Marilyn used. Why would ANYONE pick up the silverware from some unknown actress like MM at the time, when she was a nobody, right after they ate? Just another way to make $$$.

An original script is up for sale on Ebay, claiming to be Marilyn's.

Marilyn Monroe - orig script - Strictly for Kicks 1948

276. Original script for Strictly for Kicks (1948), one of Marilyn Monroes first acting roles. Before she became a movie star, Marilyn Monroe was just another studio contract player waiting for her big break. While waiting for her chance at stardom, Marilyn appeared in a studio talent showcase in March, 1948 called Strictly For Kicks, along with other studio hopefuls, presented at the 20th Century-Fox Studio Club Little Theater. This original mimeographed script contains a couple of brief scenes which featured the future screen legend. Example: "Miss Monroe butts onto the stage..." $300 - $500

Did a little more digging on this subject, and found this bit of info. Short, but interesting.


Meet Kordula Polenek, one of Hollywood's true legends, Kordee, as everyone calls her, retired from 20th Century Fox after 58 years -- longer than anyone, having started during WWII in 1944...

While she was at Fox, Kordee performed in dramatic and musical presentations on the lot, appearing along side Marilyn Monroe in "Strictly For Kicks". An outside arena was built instead of using the stage on the lot because Darryl Zanuck would be attending.

I'm sure this has been covered before on ES but I can't find anything. The photos are coming up for sale at Bonham's. An article says Strictly For Kicks was a show at Fox in early '48 but Marilyn is wearing a dress from LOTC (made at Columbia.) Any info would be appreciated...

Beautiful Tara, thanks for sharing this, I love seeing these never before seen pics. Especially before she became a "huge Hollywood Starlette". (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/smile1.gif)

Wow, the pics are AMAZING! She is front and center, singing and dancing. Yes, and wearing the dress similar in Chorus. It is said this was done in March of 1948. And she signed with Columbia in March too. Also, love the pic of her at the end of the show wearing the gold (?) dress. Similar to the Gentlemen Prefer Blondes style. She had it all even back then! I would have given my life to have been in that crowd. Watching her sing and dance, seeing her confidence grow. This is one of the greatest finds of her I can remember. A treasure!

Hey, I was wondering - might the other dress be the Love Happy one? I know that was 1949, but she wore it in photo sessions too so she might have owned it before...

Pretty sure I've seen the bikini before as well - I can't find the photo, but she wore a flower in her hair. (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/marilynbybrandon_190.gif)
