Everlasting Star Community _ General Discussion _ F999 - Marilyn's Unique Actress/publicity Designation At 20th Century Fox

Posted by: LasseK Aug 26 2008, 09:31 AM

A few months back I decided to look into the various numberings that you encounter on Marilyn photos. Strangely enough I haven't come across any explanation of these numbers anywhere else, why I guess that you will be as pleased by this post as I was in finding it out.

This topic deals with one in particular, one which you all have seen, but maybe not yet have fully understood the meaning of.
Namely this one

- the "F999-" numbers.

(I will post on some other numbering systems regarding Marilyn pictures in other threads later. For instance publicity pictures for each film, basically shots of scenes from the picture or maybe backstage, were numbered by the film's unique publicity designation. More on this later.)

By sampling all my MM photos bearing the F999-designation and looking at pictures of other film stars at various film studios, I soon realized:
"F999" simply and actually means Marilyn's unique (actress/publicity) designation at Fox!
From the very beginning to the end.

The "F" means Fox (for instance Paramount studios used "P"), "999" is the unique (actress/publicity) number Marilyn got when she signed or when Fox started releasing publicity pictures of her. (What the middle "s" stands for, I am not sure.)

So, somewhere there may be a "F999-s-1" photo of Marilyn, but I haven't seen it and it would be great to find out which the first one was.

All this is of course a great find to us and any collector. By arranging these numbered photos in order we will have yet another means of dating shoots and pictures.

The earliest F999s that I have so far are these:
F999-s-22 and F999-s-23


The following ones are from various outdoor shoots ranging from F999-s-41 to F999-s-82.
(You'll find the corresponding numbers in the file names, where you will also notice that I've added a "0" to the last number, like in "F999-s-022" - that's just because this makes the pictures get sorted in the right order in my folders.)











(The ES-page froze on me while uploading pics, I hope the ones I alreday did come through. Till later)

I have to stop here for now. Please add a post and I will continue.

Lasse

That's so cool! Now I will have to start looking through my folders for that number. Thank you for doing the research!

Posted by: LasseK Aug 26 2008, 10:46 AM

Thanks, Erica.

The following ones, ranging from F999-s-87 to F999-s-96, are from the Sorell and the Baby Sitter shoot.






These are from F999-s-103 up to F999-s-108 on the Fox lot.




This is F999-s-111.



F999-s-120.


F999-s-128.


Golf pictures in different outfits from F999-s-133 to F999-s-136.




Finally for now, from the Sailor hat shoot, F999-s-142.


These represent all 1940s F999:s (before the All About Eve publicity pictures) that I have found so far.
(There are of course many other non-F999 Marilyn publicity pictures from the 1940s from non-Fox films. I will post on these later in other threads.)

I guess most of you, just like me, will have a number of other pictures belonging to the various shoots above. However I have only posted the ones with clear and readable numbers.

If you've got more F999:s from the 1940s or in better quality, please post.

I will get back to you later with what I have of F999:s from the 1950s.

Lasse, I don't know if you already have this photo, but I found this reference on the internet:

290. Marilyn Monroe Portrait from Theres No Business Like

Show Business (20th Century-Fox, 1954) Gelatin silver glossy 8 in. x 10

in. print of Marilyn Monroe. Portrait number P999-S-424 imprinted in

negative by hand on the recto border lower right.


This is a link to the catalog. The picture is item #290, on page 15 of 48. The picture is not very good quality, so I hope you already have a better one. bye1.gif

Thanks Mary, I do have that picture and will post it when I get to the 1950s F999:s.
They have misread it - its not "P999-", its "F999-".

Thanks anyway. It's a great catalogue.

Lasse, as always you are truly incredible! marilynbybrandon_190.gif
Thank you yet again.

Posted by: LasseK May 11 2009, 02:14 PM

Correction!

In an earlier post, regarding for instance a number like "F999-s-134". I said:
"The "F" means Fox (for instance Paramount studios used "P") "

It seems I was mistaken. Look at these:



These are 20th Century Fox publicity numbers for Hildegard Neff and Jayne Mansfield.
Both actresses got their Fox contracts much later than Marilyn, in the early 1950s.

As you can see, Neff's picture reads "G127-s-28" and Jayne's reads "G232-s-33".

By this I conclude that the "F" actually doesn't refer to "Fox" but simply is part of an alphabetical system used for the register of Fox actors/actresses. Marilyn simply got the "F999-" and after that, instead of going "F1000-" etc, they went to "G..." etc..

Now, I haven't had the time and opportunity to check out this theory on earlier Fox' film stars, like if there actually are any "A...", "B..." etc. actors/actresses.

(An alternate explanation could be that the "F" oiriginally stood for "Fox", but (only) at the end of the run of the first thousand actors/actresses (Marilyn's "F999-"), they decided to make it alphabetical by introducing the "G-" series, if you see what I mean.)

Lasse

Posted by: Lacrymosa May 11 2009, 04:18 PM

Thank you Lasse. I was pretty sure too that the "F" meant Fox... since I've seen pictures of other actresses that were numbered, and where for example "MG" refered to MGM and "P" to Paramount.
I'm browsing through my files and will let you know if I find Fox pictures with another letter...

[size="3"][/size]

Posted by: Lacrymosa May 11 2009, 07:50 PM

Here is what I've found so far :

The lowest number I've found is "F6", which was used for Shirley Temple :



She got her contract with Fox in 1933.

The thing I don't really know is if the numbers were attributed in chronogical order. For example, Tyrone Power's number was "F266". He was signed in 1936. Whereas Alice Faye's number was "F15" and she was signed in 1935.



I am more confused than before ! laugh.gif If it's not chronological, how did they choose the number ?
But I think you can be right Lasse when you say that the "G" came when they didn't have anymore "F"' left.
I haven't found yet pictures with another letter.

Posted by: dazzledent May 11 2009, 08:13 PM

Interesting.

My suggestions -I think Shirley Temple signed with Fox at age 6. Alice Faye was born in 1915.
Tyrone Power is more tricky...his sister was born on the 26th... ??? Maybe it was quite a random system?

I don't know what the C exactly refers to. But the 1479 is the number for the film "Asphalt Jungle". I have publicity pictures both with C1479-, S1479- and with no letters at all, just plain 1479-.

All Marilyn (solo) publicity pictures are C1479- and so far I haven't seen any "C"-pictures of anyone else.

All "S"-pictures that I have are studio publicity pictures of Marilyn together with someone else from the cast.

All "no letter"-1479- pictures seem so far to be of scenes from the picture.

Thanks Harald, and everyone who keeps adding to the thread.

No, Harald, they are not numbered in strict chronlogical order. I am still and continually working on this series and have found that pictures and additions from earlier shoots sometimes were published quite some time after the actual date of the shoot.

Also, the press would of course freely use earlier photos as publicity for various film releases or reruns of films, or to illustrate whatever Marilyn stories they'd run.

Question. Why does her baby photo have the F999? Did they (Fox) own the rights to that photo?

Posted by: msjobean Aug 6 2016, 03:29 AM

I have wondered the same thing for a very long time.

Posted by: Alanma Aug 6 2016, 12:35 PM

Possibly, the Studio acquired all the early photos it could, and took them into stock - hence the F999 - simply so that the Publicity Dept. would have better control over Marilyn's image. I expect that while they were building Marilyn up into a star, they were asked for stories about her early life.

Love it thumbup1.gif .

These are nrs 110, 111, 114 & 115, they go together I suppose. Wish we had nrs 112 and 113...

Those are great Suus. I didn't have 114. We'll have to keep our eyes peeled for 112 & 113.

marilynbybrandon_190.gif Does anyone know who the people are with Marilyn?

Posted by: Stacy Dec 14 2018, 09:47 PM

Was wondering myself. The lady looks a bit like Sylvia Barnhart, but not certain. Let's play detective!

Sol Wertzel Productions, Filmed at 20th Century Fox, Makeup Department on Dangerous Years:
Irene Beshon...Hair Stylist
Jack Casey...Makeup Artist

Don't know if this is them or not

Hi all-this must be one of the missing ones we are after 112 or 113. So missing one more as far as we know. We will get there. Enjoy smile1.gif

marilynbybrandon_190.gif Thanks Stacy, does look like Sylvia to me also.

Posted by: Stacy Dec 17 2018, 10:57 PM

Thanks Livia, that fits in there somewhere, 112 or 113. 111 doesn't flow with the continuity to me. It should probably be 116, 117 or 118.

She is Irene Beshon. Here is a photo taken 13 years earlier at Fox.

Neither did I. I have some doubt though. Why would Jasgur not have mentioned this (as far as I know) unsure.gif

Found more sites were they claim the photo is Jasgur's...

Jasgur also claimed some of Richard C Miller's photos.
I was in contact with Miller's spokesperson at one time and Jasgur had taken some photos and put his stamp on the back of it, and same witn some Bruno Bernard pics.
The Miller photos were in his archive and part of sessions and clearly by him.
May not be Jasgur's fault though, if someone else had access to his stamp.

yes, interesting

Posted by: memaria Apr 23 2019, 01:11 AM

Worthpoint has several Jasgur-stamped and sometimes signed photos that are really by Miller, Hueth, John Randolph.
Yeah, it's interesting. Also I'm sure slightly annoying for those who like to keep their Marilyn files in order lol.

marilynbybrandon_190.gif Thanks again for posting these, I was able to clean up some of them. Perhaps someone else good at cleaning them will help with the others.

Wow. Thanks JC!
These are some bigger versions of photos already posted, but they have pesky watermarks on them.

marilynbybrandon_190.gif Glad you liked them...unfortunately, I don't have the skills or the program to fix certain watermarks or flaws. Some here do, but it takes a lot of time. I try not to post bad copies of pix and articles.
