  • Description

    ITALY TODAY AWARDED ITS DONATALLO (CQ) AWARD FOR THE BEST FOREIGN ACTRESS TO AMERICAN STAR MARILYN MONROE. AND MISS MONROE'S ARRIVAL AT THE ITALIAN......
    ....CULTURAL INSTITUTE ON PARK AVENUE SHIFTED THE EMPHASIS FROM CULTURE TO PLAIN, UNDILUTED SHOWN BUSINESS. MARILYN WAS ONLY 25 MINUTES LATE ... WHICH WAS VIRTUALLY PUNCTUAL FOR AN ACTRESS NOTED FOR HER TARDINESS. THE PLACE WAS PACKED WITH PHOTOGRAPHERS, SHOW PEOPLE AND REPORTERS. AND THE AWARD WAS PRESENTED AMID THE SHOUTS AND CRIES OF ONLOOKERS. MBC'S GABE PRESSMAN LED OFF A CHACTIC INTERVIEW WITH THE STAR:
    THE LATE CECIL B. DE MILLE WAS FAMED FOR HIS ABILITY TO CREATE EXCITING MOB SCENES. BUT OUR CANDIDATE FOR TOP HONORS IS MARILYN MONROE .... WHO CREATES MOB SCENES BY JUST BEING MARILYN. LIKE TODAY, FOR INSTANCE. SHE WENT TO THE ITALIAN CULTURAL INSTITUTE ON PARK AVENUE TO RECEIVE ITALY'S DONATELLO (CQ) AWARD AS THE BEST FOREIGN ACTRESS OF THE YEAR.

    AND CHAOS WAS THE ORDER OF THE DAY AS NEWSMEN AND PHOTOGRAPHERS ELBOWED, GOUGED AND CLAWED TO GET NEAR MISS MONROE. THE AWARD WAS TO BE PRESENTED BY THE INSTITUTE'S FILIPPE DOMINI (C) ... HERE HE IS DURING AN EXCITED MOMENT BEFORE HE FOUGHT HIS WAY TO MARILYN'S SIDE TO MAKE THE PRESENTATION.

    THE GIST OF IT ALL WAS THAT MARILYN IS PRETTY WONDERFUL IN ANY LANGUAGE. ESPECIALLY WONDERFUL TODAY, BECAUSE SHE WAS ONLY 25 MINUTES LATE TO THE PROCEEDINGS. THAT'S SOMETHING LIKE A RECORD FOR PUNCTUALITY FOR THE HABITUALLY LATE STAR.

    WITH THAT, SHE LEFT THE MOB SCENE WITH HER HUSBAND, ARTHUR MILLER. OUR CAMERAMAN, JESSE SABIN WAS EXHAUSTED ... WE WERE DISHEVELLED ... BUT NEITHER ONE OF US WOULD HAVE MISSED IT FOR THE WORLD. 'BYE MARILYN .... IT WAS THE LOVELIEST MOB SCENE WE'VE EVER BEEN IN.
