You are right Chris, Marilyn sat next to George Cukor, Josh Logan and Billy Wilder at the party.
Great photos Suus. Dennis Stock took the first and last ones, do you think he took the three middle ones as well?!

Hi Chris, If I remember well thereīs a photo of Kruschev and Marilyn where sheīs wearing another dress,
the black dress she used when she left NY to shoot Bus Stop I think, where Haspiel took those photos of her
with a bunch of roses just outside the plane. BUt I canīt find it now, I have it somewhere but I donīt know where.
Does anybody know the pic Iīm talking about? I think Kruschev is dressed in a military outfit.
If anybody has the pic , please , could you post it?

Posted by: chris Mar 16 2006, 06:35 PM

I think that the picture that you are talking about is the picture with the Indonesian President, Mr Sukarno
I'll try to send it
Chris

Is it the picture that you are speaking about ?

I have always wondered if Marilyn had borrowed this dress from the studio, and it just so happened that the costume designer wanted it for the film. blush.gif ...or maybe this was just a MAKE-UP TEST, where the clothes don't really matter!??????????

Posted by: Celia Jun 5 2006, 03:48 PM

I donīt know with that specific dress Charli, but Marilyn sometimes used her own personal wardrobe
in her films and the opposite too. I tend to think that dress was hers, cause she wore it while she was
living in New York too. Wether it was going to be used in SGTG , I donīt know, but it wouldnīt be
strange.

Yes...very nice pictures. Were there any taken of Marilyn with Khruschev together at the event?

Posted by: nzmermaid Nov 21 2007, 11:16 PM

That same dress I am sure, was in a scene of LML, I remember her sitting on a step ladder wearing it in a balcony set with Yves Montand. She was not as thin as the SGTG shot in the same dress. She also had the dress in her possesion when she died as it was sold at the Christies auction and is in the catalogue.

Magda, that looks like Joshua Logan next to her. Could it be? I thought they didn't speak to each other after Bus Stop.

Posted by: magda24 Jan 19 2009, 04:03 PM

Yes, I think it's him. He can be spotted on some other pictures from this event as well. Were they speaking to each other?We don't know. Marilyn could have very well ignored him during the course of the evening. But I think they were polite to each other, as reasonable adults- there's a reason Logan always spoke only good things about her. She may have forgiven him, at least in the public.

Lasse


Allegedly she became mad at him because she thought that he had cut the best part of her monologue in Bus Stop which, in her opinion, compromised her chances for receiving an Oscar nod. Logan always explained that it wasn't his choice to shorten this scene but the producers made him do it.

Hi Nettie. I have the date for the first 3 as September 18, 1959, flying from NY to LA for a "Let's Make Love" meeting and attending the September 19th Khrushchev visit in the Fox commissary, Cafe de Paris. The last one, I have as September 20, 1959, returning to NY from LA.

Huge photos of the event. And the articles are very detailed and interesting.

Sept. 19, 1959: Khrushchev addresses a luncheon at Twentieth Century Fox's Cafe de Paris. The man at the far left is unidentified in the caption information, but I believe he is ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge Jr. Next is Soviet envoy Mikhail Menshikov; studio President Spyros Skouras; translator Oleg Troyanovsky; Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev; Eric Johnston of the Motion Picture Producers Assn.; Andrei Gromyko; studio executive Buddy Adler; and Khrushchev's son Sergei.

Actor David Niven, center, in a toast at Twentieth Century Fox studios with Nikita Khrushchev, left, Eric Johnston of the Motion Picture Producers Assn., Andrei Gromyko and studio executive Buddy Adler.

The Times' Philip K. Scheuer is seated with Judy Garland, Shelley Winters and Shirley MacLaine.
Nina Khrushchev is seated between Frank Sinatra and Bob Hope.

Sept. 20, 1959, Khrushchev, Scheuer "I'm furious. I see vodka on their table!" Shelley [Winters] joked, indicating the still unoccupied table. The waitresses had just set before us bottles of Wente Bros. Pinot Chardonnay '57.

Judy [Garland] raised her glass. "I think we'll all get blind drunk and hiss and boo and carry on."






 

Posted by: Mezzo Aug 22 2012, 01:58 PM

Smithsonian.com also has an article about the event. This is the part that discusses Marilyn:

"A handful of stars—Bing Crosby, Ward Bond, Adolphe Menjou and Ronald Reagan—turned down their invitations as a protest against Khrushchev, but not nearly enough to make room for the hordes who demanded one. Hoping to ease the pressure, 20th Century Fox announced that it would not invite agents or the stars' spouses. The ban on agents crumbled within days, but the ban on spouses held. The only husband-and-wife teams invited were those in which both members were stars—Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh; Dick Powell and June Allyson; Elizabeth Taylor and Eddie Fisher. Marilyn Monroe's husband, the playwright Arthur Miller, might have qualified as a star, but he was urged to stay home because he was a leftist who'd been investigated by the House committee and therefore was considered too radical to dine with a communist dictator.

However, the studio was determined that Miller's wife attend. "At first, Marilyn, who never read the papers or listened to the news, had to be told who Khrushchev was," Lena Pepitone, Monroe's maid, recalled in her memoirs. "However, the studio kept insisting. They told Marilyn that in Russia, America meant two things, Coca-Cola and Marilyn Monroe. She loved hearing that and agreed to go....She told me that the studio wanted her to wear the tightest, sexiest dress she had for the premier."

"I guess there's not much sex in Russia," Marilyn told Pepitone.

Monroe arrived in Los Angeles a day ahead of Khrushchev, flying from New York, near where she and Miller were then living. When she landed, a reporter asked if she'd come to town just to see Khrushchev.

"Yes," she said. "I think it's a wonderful thing, and I'm happy to be here."

That provoked the inevitable follow-up question: "Do you think Khrushchev wants to see you?"

"I hope he does," she replied.

The next morning, she arose early in her bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel and began the complex process of becoming Marilyn Monroe. First, her masseur, Ralph Roberts, gave her a rubdown. Then hairdresser Sydney Guilaroff did her hair. Then makeup artist Whitey Snyder painted her face. Finally, as instructed, she donned a tight, low-cut black patterned dress.

In the middle of this elaborate project, Spyros Skouras, the president of 20th Century Fox, dropped by to make sure that Monroe, who was notorious for being late, would arrive at this affair on time.

"She has to be there," he said.

And she was. Her chauffeur, Rudi Kautzsky, delivered her to the studio. When they found the parking lot nearly empty, she was scared.

"We must be late!" she said. "It must be over."

It wasn't. For perhaps the first time in her career, Marilyn Monroe had arrived early.

Waiting for Khrushchev to arrive, Edward G. Robinson sat at table 18 with Judy Garland and Shelley Winters. Robinson puffed on his cigar and gazed out at the kings and queens of Hollywood—the men wearing dark suits, the women in designer dresses and shimmering jewels. Gary Cooper was there. So was Kim Novak. And Dean Martin, Ginger Rogers, Kirk Douglas, Jack Benny, Tony Curtis and Zsa Zsa Gabor.

"This is the nearest thing to a major Hollywood funeral that I've attended in years," said Mark Robson, the director of Peyton Place, as he eyeballed the scene.

Marilyn Monroe sat at a table with producer David Brown, director Joshua Logan and actor Henry Fonda, whose ear was stuffed with a plastic plug that was attached to a transistor radio tuned to a baseball game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Francisco Giants, who were fighting for the National League pennant."

Posted by: Celia Feb 20 2014, 10:09 PM

You know, I was just wondering... I donīt understand why in 1959 she needed to play that role yet. I mean, Susan Strasberg also said something similar "she didnīt need all that, she had already demonstrated she was a good actress " , and I would add: a business woman.
Ok, this was 1959, but we have seen Marilyn as an intelligent, sure, witty woman in interviews as the one in LA airport for Bus Stop, and later her last interview for life. This woman in the clip was another woman, I donīt know why she went on playing the "dumb blonde" ( hope no one jumps down on me, thatīs what from my point of view she is playing in this interview, and I say "playing" not being).
She didnīt need that anymore, I think. it is like going back again. I have the same feeling with some of her public appearences in 1962 (the Golden Globe Awards with Bolaņos) . It is as if , once she had lost Arthur Miller she didnīt trust herself anymore, it is just a feeling and I might be wrong, but somehow I think she went backwards regarding her public appearence. She was trying to be taken seriously, what she absolutely deserved, but she played just the opposite sometimes. I find it such a pitty. I am sure she was so much interesting being herself !! And I guess it took so much of her energy, to be constantly playing this role, it must have been imposible to go on. I just canīt imagine to carry on such a weight.

Posted by: MissCaswell Feb 28 2014, 07:51 PM

It seems to me, in this interview, she's being nervous rather than playing the dumb blonde. Marilyn liked to get interview questions in advance so that she could prepare answers, and I can imagine she was very uncomfortable about being approached like that when she was really there as a guest and spectator.

I think it has more to do with the fact that Krushchev led Russia during the Cold War..and therefore represented Communism. I think she felt like she had to watch what she said due to Arthur Miller be accused of Communism during the ridiculous McCarthy trials.

We view this from a 21st Century perspective but during this time there was so much irrational fear about Communism, that I think she didn't want to say too much in the interview, because it would probably be viewed as her being sympathetic to Communism and therefore re-affirm in the (ridiculous) minds of the powers that be that Miller was a Communist.

Or maybe she just wasn't in a talking mood. Having to do interviews all the time would be super annoying.

I quite agree with your analysis, Zelda, combined with the fact that Marilyn was naturally shy about expressing her feelings in public.
Attached some rare moments in colour, filmed during the day.
This is in the generic of a dedicated program about Khrushchev's visit to US, that was shown on TV tonight, in France.

You know, I was just wondering... I donīt understand why in 1959 she needed to play that role yet. I mean, Susan Strasberg also said something similar "she didnīt need all that, she had already demonstrated she was a good actress " , and I would add: a business woman.
Ok, this was 1959, but we have seen Marilyn as an intelligent, sure, witty woman in interviews as the one in LA airport for Bus Stop, and later her last interview for life. This woman in the clip was another woman, I donīt know why she went on playing the "dumb blonde" ( hope no one jumps down on me, thatīs what from my point of view she is playing in this interview, and I say "playing" not being).
She didnīt need that anymore, I think. it is like going back again. I have the same feeling with some of her public appearences in 1962 (the Golden Globe Awards with Bolaņos) . It is as if , once she had lost Arthur Miller she didnīt trust herself anymore, it is just a feeling and I might be wrong, but somehow I think she went backwards regarding her public appearence. She was trying to be taken seriously, what she absolutely deserved, but she played just the opposite sometimes. I find it such a pitty. I am sure she was so much interesting being herself !! And I guess it took so much of her energy, to be constantly playing this role, it must have been imposible to go on. I just canīt imagine to carry on such a weight.

Seems to me that there was something she was trying not to give away. Her personal feelings for views on communism? the Soviets? I don't know. She definitely wanted to not be pushed into saying something. Only she knew what.

An episode of American Experience on Khrushchev's tour of the US in 1959. MM is in the shows logo. And short footage of MM starts around 21:20, and some later on hearing the speech. Watch below.


PBS AMERICAN EXPERIENCE - Cold War Roadshow

Aired: 11/18/2014
51:47

In the fall of 1959, at the height of the Cold War, Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev toured the United States for 12 days at the invitation of President Dwight Eisenhower. For both men, the visit was an opportunity to halt the escalating threats of the Cold War and potentially chart a new course toward peaceful coexistence. For the American press, it was the media blockbuster story of the year.

Short interview with MM at Luncheon.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UBsom3UHFKw



Previously there have been many comments about Marilyn's awkward responses to this media interview after the Khruschev lunch. I just watched a documentary called Khruschev Does America and you see rare footage of the luncheon and the whole speech that Spyros Skouros and then Khruschev gives at the luncheon. Khruschev is angry and basically has a tantrum about the fact that he wants to visit Disneyland but can't because his security can't be guaranteed at the fun park. He feels that in a country that should be 'free' he is confined to a car in the hot sun. The audience is stunned. In this context I can now understand Marilyn's responses - what else could she say - that the leader of the USSR had a tantrum?

I have seen this and the only thing that bothers me is that in the background you can hear some man
repeating "the roast beef" as the interviewer is talking to Marilyn asking her what she expected
being there. Of course there's always going to be one jerk. But her being the lady that she is
ignored him and remained the lady that she was.

Love seeing the stars. Gregory Peck looks especially handsome in his sunglasses. Great pic of our MM coming off the plane.
