Venice- The 17th annual Venice Film Festival opened today with its usual aura of glamor and prestige marred by the fact that many big film producers decided to ignore the proceedings.

The festival's organizers sent an invitation to Miss Monroe almost two months ago, but American's most famous export has not yet sent a firm yes or no from her honeymoon cottage outside London.

August 26, 1956

Playwright Arthur Miller clasped his wife, Marilyn Monroe, in a farewell embrace tonight. Then he flew to the United States where a congressional citation for contempt still hangs over him.

The Pulitzer prize-winning dramatist and his famous wife swept into the airport tonight in a cloud of ostensible secrecy. However, diligent publicity men had spread the word that Miller would be traveling as "Mr. Stevenson" and that "Mrs. Stevenson" would see him off.

Kisses Three Times
Right at the appointed time, a big, black limousine drove into the airport. In the back with Miller sat Marilyn, her curves concealed in a big beige coat. Much of her face was hidden by an outsize pair of dark glasses.

The limousine, escorted by two police outriders, drove to an old control tower now used as a police station.
The Millers went inside. There, informants said, they kissed three times while a police inspector and two constables guarded the doors.

Marilyn drove back to the house she has taken in the country.
