Lot Details
Marilyn Monore 3-D negatives, 1952, sold with photographer's copyright
A collection of 10 color three-dimensional negatives of Marilyn Monroe, taken by Lani Carlson in 1952 at a party thrown by bandleader Ray Anthony, celebrating the release of the song Marilyn, written by Ervin Drake and Jimmy Shirl. Carlson took these photos with a David White Stereo Realist Camera, a dual-lens camera that creates a three-dimensional effect when seen through a special viewer.
Carlson was hired as a sound engineer for the party, and had ample opportunity to take candid pictures of the actress that day. Wearing a hot pink cocktail dress that she also wore in her breakout film Niagara, Monroe arrived in a helicopter and proceeded to pose for photos with Anthony, Mickey Rooney, the helicopter pilot, a dog and alone in front of a blown-up piece of sheet music for the song.
A fantastic collection of Marilyn Monroe images.
In addition to the original negatives and the original viewer through which the 3-d effect can be experienced, this lot includes an Assignment of Copyrights document executed by Lani Carlson which states that he assigns all of his right, title and interest including worldwide copyrights in and to the photographic images to the auction buyer. For more information or to review the seller's copyright assignment document, please contact the department.
