Marilyn Monroe in River of No Return



    S'il est loin d'être un titre phare du western, "Rivière sans retour" est surtout l'occasion de voir Marilyn en chanteuse de saloon.


    Comme souvent dans les films où elle apparaît, de nombreuses scènes sont prétextes à la voir chanter, même si ça tombe comme un cheveu sur la soupe (un peu comme dans certains Disney).

    Toutefois ces scènes là sont assez réussies et les mélodies plutôt agréables et collant bien avec l'atmosphère du film.










    lot n°733: Marilyn Monroe signature camisole top
    by Travilla from River of No Return

    (TCF, 1954) For Marilyn’s studio-imposed adventure in the Canadian wilderness, director Otto Preminger chose to bless film-goers with the joy of watching her, for a large part of the screen time, in this simple yet highly erotic camisole designed by Travilla.

    Complemented on screen by skin-tight blue jeans, and accented at one point with a good soaking in the river rapids, this little bit of cotton muslin with lace embroidery has become over the succeeding decades one of Marilyn’s most recognized, iconic, and exploited fashions. With interior label inscribed “1-81-2- 4739 A713-05 M. Monroe”.


    A few very minor stains, otherwise virtually identical to condition as worn on screen, including the off-white coloring, and the intentional rough-hewn bottom margin. A precious and immediately identified artifact from this great star’s career.
