Thirty-seven years after her muchtouted visit to San Diego, the United States Postal Service decided to honor Hollywood actress, Marilyn Monroe, with a 32-cent stamp on June 1, 1995, but some comedians cautioned against it. “Men might, inadvertently, lick the wrong side of the stamp,” was the celebrated punch line. Marilyn Monroe may have physically died in Brentwood, Los Angeles, but her image, memory, and popularity refuses to dim with the decades. It has now been over forty-four years since she left us, yet the hand of death has failed, miserably, to halt her occasional strolls to occupy the world spotlight. Just a few days ago, in November 2016, one of her famous gowns occupied centre stage when it sold for a record-breaking $4.8-million! More than any other dress in world history.

The dress which was sold at Julien’s Auction was the sexy crystal-encrusted gown she wore when she sang her legendary and sultry version of “Happy Birthday” to President John F. Kennedy, in front of 15,000 guests at New York’s Madison Square Garden in May of 1962. The sensual-looking outfit was so tight that Monroe had to be sewn into her gown. Her buxom body and ample cleavage appeared almost nude. The fleshcolored image of her physique under the spotlight sent erotic shockwaves to the brain cells.
Everything Marilyn did, she did with outlandish style; courting controversy at every turn as if she – somehow – knew that she was on borrowed time and, therefore, had to make the best of life while she could. Her life personified the celebrated remark, “Life is too short to eat vanilla ice cream and dance with boring men.” When Marilyn Monroe came to town for the filming of Billy Wilder’s internationally-acclaimed “Some Like It Hot” motion picture at the Hotel Del Coronado, much of what occurred never made it to print. With all the hoopla, myth-making, and scribbling in the ink media, there were huge slices of hidden drama which parlayed into Monroe’s often odd and curious behavior during the shoot. Her delayed appearances and complete absences from the set, for example, were not all due to substance abuse and sickness, as seems to be the go-to-answer with most who chronicle her celebrated visit here.
A relatively-recent discovery of extraordinary Marilyn Monroe letters, personal notes, and diary The Paper - 760.747.7119
recordings – for the very first time -offer the world a new, never-beforeseen look at her inner-most thoughts, motivations, ambitions, and fears of a certain someone plotting her murder.
Even now, as these personal documents and glimpses of her hidden life are slowly being released and auctioned off, a startling new insight is emerging about her San Diego visit on the set of Some Like It Hot.
Marilyn’s personal will bequeathed her archive of personal effects to her celebrated acting coach, Lee Strasberg. With Strasberg’s passing in 1982 -- outliving his most illustrious student by over 20 years -- this goldmine of personal writings is slowly making its way into the light of day. In 1999, Lee Strasberg’s third wife, Anna Mizrahi Strasberg, began selling off many of Marilyn’s possessions at Christie’s Auction House, Obituaries Memorials Area Services Page 12
netting over $13.4-million, thus far.
Marilyn, at first, rejected the idea of playing her character, “Sugar Kane” in San Diego, but, was strongly-encouraged to accept the film project by then-husband, Arthur Miller. The monetary enticement of receiving 10% of the film’s total profits in addition to her normal pay was too good to turn down. Her standard pay of $300,000, by itself, was three times the amount co-star, Tony Curtis, would receive in the amount of $100,000. San Diego plays a most significant portion of her colorful life with the filming of Some Like It Hot in 1958, the very film which earned her immortality; the very film rated the No. 1 comedy of all-time by the world’s most distinguished movie critics. Marilyn’s constant problems on the
set delayed shooting schedules and reduced film director, Billy Wilder into a nervous wreck. When Wilder was asked if he would agree to do another film project with Marilyn Monroe, he did not pull his punches: “My doctor and my psychiatrist tell me I am too old and too rich to go through this again.” Director Wilder, walked-the-talk when he threw a post-production celebration party at his home for cast and crew members. Marilyn Monroe – was not invited.
Billy Wilder didn’t plan on pyrotechnics at the celebration party but, in a manner of speaking, he got fireworks whether he wanted them or not. Wounded by Wilder’s post-filming remarks and not being invited to his cast and crew soiree was just too overwhelming for Marilyn Monroe to remain civil. She called Billy

Wilder’s house and asked Mrs. Wilder to please give her husband the following message: “To go *%@! himself!!” After a brief pause, she delicately added, “And my warmest personal regards to you, Audrey.”
It is now almost sixty years since the blond siren brought herself, luggage, and personal mental baggage of another sort, to the world-famous Coronado hotel. It was her mental baggage which wreaked havoc at the famed Hotel Del movie set: her pregnancy at the time, her bouts of insomnia, marital problems, drug dependencies, and so on, all went on parade. And all of which took its toll on cast and crew, all the way up to director,Billy Wilder, who often spoke through both sides of his mouth. While shooting was in progress, Wilder praised Marilyn to the media for being congenial and professional, while in reality he was as nervous as a hemophiliac running naked through a razor blade factory. In short, Wilder was at wits’ end.
Marilyn often missed her lines, necessitating as many as 40 to 70 more takes, to get just one scene right. Since Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon were in drag, such delays and retakes made them stand around in painful women’s high heels for extended periods of time. When the agony became unbearable, both Curtis and

Lemmon would have to kick off their shoes in desperation and soak their painful feet while Marilyn continued to drag (pun intended) the scenes out. Artistically, Tony Curtis felt his performances suffered through multiple takes in order to get one good scene out of the actress.
Not all was chaos and angst during the filming. There were occasionally lighter moments, though not enough to justify the pitfalls. On one amusing scenario, three-time Oscar-winning costume designer, Orry George Kelly, was busy measuring Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis, and Marilyn Monroe for their respective dresses on the set of Some Like It Hot. When measuring Marilyn, the outspoken Australian-American designer quipped to Marilyn: “You know, Marilyn, Tony’s got a better looking ass than yours.” According to Kelly, she looked at him, opened her blouse and said, “Yeah, but he doesn’t have **** like these!”
The film’s storyline of two men having to dress up as women after witnessing a murder by a Chicago mob was, itself, a most daring concept for its time. When the film was first released it was quickly banned in the state of Kansas with the explanation that “Cross-dressing is too disturbing for Kansans.” The film found further condemnation from the Catholic organization, “National League of Decency,” which stated that Some Like It Hot was, simply, too hot for acceptance. It was found “morally objectionable” and “promoted homosexuality, lesbianism, and transvestism.” for $100. His cost of production is $80 and his profit is $20.

Please excuse the four-letter words toward the end of the following story. I would have deleted them, but the story just wouldn't be the same. A young Jewish couple got married and went on their honeymoon. When they got back, the bride immediately called her mother.
"Well," said her mother, "so how was the honeymoon?"
"Oh mama," she replied, "The honeymoon was wonderful! So romantic!" Suddenly she burst out crying. "But, mama, as soon as we returned, Sam started
In the rearview mirror, San Diego’s most famous film and cast ensemble were almost dramatically altered. Comedian Jerry Lewis was first offered the role of Daphne, which eventually went to Jack Lemmon. Lewis demurred over the concept of having to dress in women’s clothing. Then, Danny Kaye and Bob Hope were considered for the roles that would finally go to Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon, respectively. Even Marilyn’s character of “Sugar Kane Kowalezk” was first planned for 27year-old actress, singer, and dancer, Mitzi Gaynor. A 32-year-old Monroe would finally fill the bill as 25-yearold “Sugar.”
During the film’s shooting at the Hotel Del, Marilyn Monroe’s marital conflict with third and final husband, Arthur Miller, would manifest in further eccentric behavior by the actress. Miller had accompanied her to the film’s location shots, but all was not well behind closed doors. Even after Miller departed to New York, the residual ill-feelings stayed on, amplifying Marilyn’s mercurial moods during the movie shoot. The lustfulflames of romance which once burned between Monroe and Miller had now simmered to a level of cooling embers. Marilyn’s recently-publicized archive letters reflect the initial attraction between herself and Miller that more resembled carnal lust over romancelove, the former being more a sprint than a marathon. Their union seemed all dazzle with smoke and mirrors, with little or no reality of substance or foundation.
using the most horrible language--- things I'd never heard before! I mean all these awful four-letter words! You've got to take me home!! PLEASE MAMA!"
"Sarah, Sarah," her mother said, "calm down! You need to stay with your husband and work this out. Now, tell me, what could be so awful? What four-letter words?"
"Please don't make me tell you, mama," wept the daughter. "I'm so embarrassed, they're just too awful! JUST COME GET ME, PLEASE!" "Darling, baby, you must tell me what has you so upset. Tell your mother these horrible four-letter words."
Sobbing, the bride gasped, "Oh, Mama, he used words like DUST, WASH, IRON, and COOK!" "I'll pick you up in twenty minutes," said her mother. American vs Japanese
On average, an American man will have sex two to three times a week, whereas a Japanese man will have sex only one or two times a year.

The doctor replies, “Ma’am you had twins! a boy and a girl. Your brother came
Miller, himself, would later acknowledge, “She was a whirling light to me then.”
A recently released archive letter from Arthur Miller to Marilyn Monroe in their early stages of romance convulses with separated lust: “I will kiss you and hold you close to me and sensational things will then happen.” The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of “Death of a Salesman,” often painted lustful scenarios with words for Marilyn Monroe, filling her with great expectations. In one passage, which was recently gleaned from Monroe’s personal letters, Miller writes, “And as you stand there cooking breakfast, I will kiss your neck and your back and the back of your legs, and the eggs will burn.” The letter pre-dated their marriage. Marilyn had a torrid romance with Arthur Miller prior to making him her third husband and converting to Judaism (Miller was of the Jewish faith).
It seemed with Marilyn that she only knew and had cursory love, obliquely feeling its orbit of influence, as opposed to directly experiencing it face-to-face. Even in her first marriage to James Dougherty in 1942 and which endured over four years, never did she feel connected and genuinely immersed in true love. Her personal letters give a rare, but sad, insight to her psyche at the time. “My

The woman thinks to herself, “No, not my brother … he’s an idiot!” She asks the doctor, “Well, what’s the girl’s name?” “Denise,” answers the doctor.

marriage didn’t make me sad, but it didn’t make me happy either,” she lamented. “My husband and I hardly spoke to each other. This wasn’t because we were angry. We had nothing to say. I was dying of boredom.”
It was during her marriage to Arthur Miller when Marilyn Monroe experienced two miscarriages and surrendered herself more completely to drugs plus alcohol. On the set of Some Like It Hot, Marilyn was pregnant with Miller’s child. Her body’s chemical changes heightened her already-unpredictable mood swings, mental depression, and increased her reliance on prescription drugs, such as barbiturates, as well as the obligatory alcohol.
During her pregnancy on the set of Some Like It Hot, she manifested a larger-than-usual physique which had to be circumvented by using bodydoubles in the persons of Evelyn Moriarty and Sandra Warner. Marilyn Monroe’s head was later superimposed on their respective photos which were used in promoting the movie. Aside from his professional problems on the set with Marilyn, Tony Curtis struggled with his own challenges. Hard as he tried, Curtis could not elevate his voice high enough to speak as his feminine alter-ego, “Josephine,” and sustain it through various takes. The resolution was reached when Curtis’ voice was dubbed and inter-mixed with voice-

over artist, Paul Frees. The end result was a hybrid mixture of both Tony Curtis and Paul Frees, together. Otherwise, it proved impossible for Curtis to sustain a woman’s highpitched voice-range for an entire take.
A delicious bit of insight was the route of preparation which both Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon pursued in polishing their female roles as “Josephine” (Tony Curtis) and “Daphne” (Jack Lemmon). This particular aspect of their legendary roles is not well-known, thus making it that much more exciting and titillating to the public-at-large.
Prior to their arrival in San Diego, both Curtis and Lemmon strutted about in full female drag at the Goldwyn Studios, located on the corner of Formosa Avenue and Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood. Their covert plan was to see if they could ‘pass’ as women. It was a most daring experiment, but one in which they both felt committed. Both actors brazenly, and without hesitation, performed their best cross-dressing persona, body language and all, and proceeded to walk directly into the ladies’ room at the famed Goldwyn Studios lot. The slightest hesitation, or faltering of nerve, might give-away their ruse. So the two seasoned actors went into deep character and gave a brilliant performance to a most unsuspecting group of women. Once inside the women’s restroom, Curtis and Lemmon proceeded to sit before the

Their certificate of approval was earned when none of the women in their presence seemed suspicious in the slightest and carried on as usual. That’s when they knew they had arrived.
They would now wear their roles like a second skin.
One of the biggest myths that persists even today, is that Marilyn Monroe was, in reality, a dim-witted blond.
Nothing was farther from the truth. The perceived dumb blond image was by her artificial design, not her genetic bank. Monroe’s image was created and honed, complete with breathy, childlike voice and nonsensical replies, all carefully crafted to present an illusion of innocence and sexual vulnerability. In the film, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, one of Marilyn’s lines captured her real-life strategy: “I can be smart when it’s important, but most men don’t like it.”
Ironically, it was Marilyn Monroe’s intelligence and cleverness that produced and drove the movie image of an extremely sexy but overly-naive blond goddess -- every man’s fantasy girl. Her films underscored this make-believe naïvete. In Some Like It Hot, Tony Curtis’ character inquires of her, “Do you play the (stock) market?” Her naïve and sexy reply is

However, in time, she would tire of the stereotypical dumb-blond image and elevate her acting sights on more dramatic roles to reestablish herself as a bona fide movie actress.
In regards to self-promotion and purveying sexuality, Marilyn Monroe schooled herself after illustrious sex symbols of the past, after the likes of Jean Harlow, Mae West, and Betty Grable. Grable was the blond bombshell of the 1940s whose image and “Million Dollar Legs” were every soldier’s fantasy during the Second World War. She was the number one pinup girl at the height of her career. Her full-body image in bathing suit was often in lockers and walls of military men and even on the fuselage of our war planes. However, it was Mae West, born in 1895, and whose career spanned 70 years from vaudeville to Hollywood moving-making, who exploded onto the sexually-explicit scene, using bawdy sexual innuendos which proved revolutionary for her conservative era. It was Mae West who quipped, “Good sex is like good bridge. If you don’t have a good partner, you’d better have a good hand.” Mae West used the double entendres to tweak the noses of censors, and fly her sexually-explicit statements below their radar. By the standards of her day, no other

Dispatch reported multiple callers saying a fire was burning near the parking lot at Dixon Lake. As fire units were responding to the incident a fairly large smoke column could be seen in the distance. On arrival the first in engine reported a quarter acre fire in medium fuels with potential to spread into Daily Ranch.

The attack happened in a wellpopulated area not far from Woodland Park.
Smokey was a popular horse. Neighborhood kids knew him, and people from the nearby community garden liked to feed him. Smokey was a bit of an unusual sight. It’s a suburban neighborhood with not a lot of horses in the area.
Because of the fire fighting activities and water and retardant drops, the cause of the fire was unable to be determined. There was a report from a person in the area who stated he had possibly heard a back fire from a truck or an explosion just prior to the fire starting. Cal Fire units determined the fire was in State Responsibility area and provided all of their dispatched resources to suppress the fire. There were no injuries or any damage to property.

In many ways, I wouldn't be alive today if if weren't for you and Lovable Lyle, and THE PAPER.
I was broken in pieces at Palomar hospital fighting for my life. I became

Bri Valdivia, 26, of San Marcos says of Smokey . . . “ Smokey was a gentle horse. He was in his corral, minding his own business,” Valdivia said. “He didn’t stand a chance.” Officials think they know the owner of the two pit bulls that mauled Smokey so badly last Saturdeay that he had to be put down. They report the owner has had prior problems with pit bulls getting out
a cripple; had to be carried to the restroom, and given sponge baths. I had to learn how to walk all over again, like the baby I once was. They gave me shots in my stomach daily to prevent me from having a stroke. I was a total mess, with seven doctors and specialists trying to keep me in this world of ours. Trouble is, I lost my will to live. Native Americans -- in particular -don't take too kindly to having their 'wings clipped.' One miserable day when my pupils first took in the filaments of early morning, I moaned in pain and cursed my existence.
Then, one magic day, a kind patient across the hall brought me my very first copy of Lyle E. Davis' THE PAPER. I read the Chuckles and my laughter could be heard down the hospital halls. It was that loud. Scared the cider out of my doctors who came running to my bedside! When they found out that the cause of my sudden 'turn in life' was a newspaper, well, they just stood and looked at each other! The orthopedist quipped, "Hell, maybe we should have this damned newspaper in all the patients' rooms!"
It was only a matter of time that the doctors discovered a small stack of THE PAPER under my pillow. When it came time for my injections on my stomach I began crying all over again, then one of the doctors got a bright idea: "Let him hold the stack of those newspapers." They did. And I hugged them and stopped crying.
About 9 p.m. Saturday, San Marcos resident Bri Valdivia, 26, saw two dogs attacking her family’s 15-yearold horse, Smokey, in their rain-soaked yard on Fulton Road, just east of Woodland Parkway. She and her grandfather intervened and the dogs ran off. Valdivia said she heard unfamiliar barking outside her family’s home about 9 p.m. and decided to check on the noise As she neared the noise, Valdivia said she was stunned to realize that the sound was two pit bulls attacking Smokey, the family’s horse. The two pit bulls looked at her and growled. “My instinct was to get away. I backed up and then I ran,” she said. Valdivia said she quickly returned with her grandfather, armed with a bat and a flashlight, and they scared off the dogs. But while they were arranging for a vet to come to the home, the dogs returned and tried to continue the attack, she said. Her grandfather scared them off. They called 911, but the dogs were not found. Validivia said she found a trail of blood stretching from their home to
The doctors knew. The opthalmologist who saved my eyes, the orthopedic surgeon who rebuilt my leg with titanium, the specialist who first discovered the hematoma that bled in my brain, well, in short, all of them knew . . . they knew that laughter can sometimes be the best medicine the world has ever known. And THE PAPER gave me that medicine each and every Thursday!
Once, when my physical therapist took me outside for the first time to practice walking, she asked me, "White Eagle, where do you want to go first?" That was an easy question for me. "Take me out to the front entrance, where the newspaper racks are," I nearly begged. She walked me slowly, holding onto me with her arms. When I got within 10' of the stack of papers, I excitedly said, "Now let me go, let me walk the rest of the way by myself, please . . . " With great apprehension, she slowly let go and I slowly walked -teetering now and then, which caused her to gasp -- and I slowly made my way, like a small child, and picked up my own copy of THE PAPER -- by myself!
nearby Woodland Park, a popular site for families.
“We just want the dogs found,” Valdivia said. “We don’t want this to happen to anybody else.” The dogs had attacked Smokey on his backside, tearing out arteries and tendons in his legs and bringing him to the ground. Valdivia said she could see steam rise from his wounds on the cold night.
A few hours later in the same part of town, two loose dogs were spotted, one of which was injured. The Humane Society was called and animal control offficers took the dogs — both of which were micro-chipped and licensed — to a veterinary hospital, which treated them and tracked down their owner, who lives about a mile southwest from where the horse was attacked. When animal control officers later contacted the owner of the pit bulls, he told them the dogs had gotten loose again. Authorities are not releasing his name, because they have not confirmed that his dogs are behind the mauling.
It’s unclear why the dogs weren’t kept in custody, given their possible link to the earlier attack. but Chief Steve MacKinnon of the Society’s law enforcement division said he is looking into it.
The San Diego Humane Society has fielded calls from many residents concerned that two dogs aggressive enough to attack a horse are running free. Finding the pit bulls “is a priority for us,” said MacKinnon. “We want to find these

can truly be called Mae West’s equal in challenging – and triumphing – over ultra-conservative censorship. To this day, her quotes remain legendary: “When I’m good, I’m very good. But, when I’m bad – I’m even better!” Marilyn Monroe would emulate Mae West, saying openly, “I learned a few tricks from her – that impression of laughing at, or mocking, her own sexuality.” Monroe carried these lessons with her on her celebrated visit to the Hotel Del Coronado, in San Diego County. And she played her hand well, especially in getting what she wanted on the movie set. She had an arsenal of tricks. Borrowed from Mae West.
For example, during the filming of Some Like It Hot, when artistic differences clashed between her and director, Billy Wilder, Marilyn resorted to an old Mae West ruse. Whenever Wilder wanted Marilyn to approach a certain scene in a certain manner which was contrary to her own wishes, she complied. But she sabotaged the scene by purposely turning in an atrociously sub-par performance. The parallel with Mae West was spot on.
Marilyn learned another trick from Mae West which she borrowed and used to power-up one of her Some Like It Hot scenes which proved to be a stroke of genius.
In the 1932 film, Night After Night, starring George Raft, Mae West was unhappy with her entrance in the film. West considered her debut to be dull and flat and her fussing was finally appeased only after allowing her to rewrite her own scene. She did. To underscore her small role, she accentuated it in very coy fashion. West rewrote the cameo shot and had the hat-check girl exclaim to Mae West’s character: “Goodness, what beautiful diamonds!” And West wrotein her own reply: “Goodness had nothing to do with it, dearie.” By raising dissension and disruption on the movie set, Mae West was able to get her own way and rewrite and insert a most risqué line which stole the scene, completely. A scene which helped established her stardom.
In the filming of Some Like It Hot, Marilyn Monroe – like Mae West – considered her entrance scene at the train depot to be both flat and dull. She raised a fuss. Billy Wilder finally agreed to re-shoot the scene but, this time, have a blast of loud steam shoot from the train to Marilyn walking by. The sudden, unexpected sound and sight of a train’s steamblast startling Marilyn Monroe, forcing her to re-arrange her body-conscious dress, powered-up and sexually-focused her entrance. The result was pure magic, elevating Marilyn’s dull pedestrian scene to a remarkable, iconic cinematic moment.
But, of all these past movie sex symbols, it was the great actress, Jean Harlow, who remained Monroe’s unabashed favorite. The platinum
and manage her hair.
blond goddess of the 1930s, Jean Harlow would forever transfer the greatest impression upon Marilyn Monroe’s career. In subsequent interviews, Marilyn even prompted and initiated comparisons between herself and Jean Harlow. It was the height of flattery to be mentioned in the same sentence as Harlow; pure nirvana to be compared to her.
Marilyn’s hair style and color were only the beginnings of her re-creation of herself.
Her hairline was changed and elevated through electrolysis. Her slight overbite was corrected through dental surgery, fully paid by vocal coach and former lover, Fred Karger. She even had a plastic silicone prosthesis implanted in her jaw, that intervention paid by Johnny Hyde, vice president of the William Morris Agency, and with whom she had a sexual relationship. Her rhinoplasty (nose job) and chin implant were subjects of long speculation, but have been abundantly confirmed through personal photographs, before-and-after, which clearly lays speculation to rest.
From the debris of Marilyn Monroe’s early traumatic life, when she lived her childhood in various foster homes and an orphanage, and was even sexually molested, repeatedly, as a young girl, by a foster parent, she came away feeling forever unwanted, unloved, and lost; wandering a world with an indelibly-scarred psyche. A psyche which would eventually lead her to various psychiatrists and even committed to a psychiatric asylum cell. Out of this cesspool of an early existence, the erstwhile Norma Jean Baker, somehow, built a kingdom of imagination, with Jean Harlow always there, a recurring fantasy figure, during Marilyn’s formative years. Jean Harlow was her constant imaginary companion and source of inspiration.
Since she hardly had the money for such lavish expenses, her sexual dalliances often footed the bill. She had learned much from her idol, Jean Harlow, who made the humorous line: “No one ever expects a great lay to pay all the bills.” Like Jean Harlow, Mae West, and Betty Grable, Marilyn Monroe would create and learn her own tricks.
Through these years, Jean Harlow would remain fixed as Marilyn’s idol, and whom she would emulate for the rest of her life. So powerful was Jean Harlow upon Marilyn Monroe’s life that upon reaching adulthood, Marilyn wanted her own hair transformed from its natural curly brown to straightened blond. Eventually, platinum. Marilyn would even proceed to have in her employ, Jean Harlow’s personal hair stylist to color
She knew how to dress, how to talk, and how to draw attention to her buxom attributes, even courting scandal in the pursuit of sexual publicity. For example, she carefully prepared ‘unexpected accidents,’ espe-

cially during press conferences. It was no misfortune when her shoulder straps suddenly snapped, momentarily exposing her ample cleavage in full-view of the international press corps. It was great ‘copy’ for the newspapers. And television news stations had their ‘tease story’ for the day. And she never missed a golden opportunity. She exploited her sexsymbol image at every turn. Once, when acting as Grand Marshal at the Miss America Pageant parade, while wearing a revealing dress, she leaned over to whisper to gossip columnist, Earl Wilson, that she normally does not wear any underwear. She had it down to a science.
She even rehearsed her walk so that those viewing her from behind would experience heart palpitations. According to academic, Sarah Churchwell, author of “The Many Lives of Marilyn Monroe,” Marilyn’s walk in the movie Niagara, was “One of the most overtly sexual scenes.” The 30-second-long walk of Marilyn which was shot from behind with her hips swaying, had such a powerful visual impact that it was shamelessly – but successfully -- used in the film’s marketing. The lofty New York Times chimed in, “She can be seductive – even when she walks.” Even film scholar, Richard Dyer, noted her distinctive hip-swinging walk, earning her the sobriquet, “The girl with the horizontal walk.”
Local News Cont. from Page 4
However, nothing can improve on the imagery conjured up by Jack Lemmon’s character, Daphne, in Some Like It Hot: “Look at that, Joe! Look how she moves. That’s just like Jell0 on springs.” The total package came to town. The Marilyn Monroe mystique, and actress, which arrived at the worldfamous Hotel Del Coronado would unfurl in her completeness. At the Hotel Del she would surrender her lines and seek the approbation of her acting coach, Paula Strasberg, who sat daily on the set of Some Like It Hot. After each scene when director, Billy Wilder yelled “cut!” Marilyn would quickly turn to coach, Paula Strasberg, for her approval. If Strasberg gave a disapproving, chagrined look at Marilyn, then Marilyn would insist that Wilder re-shoot the scene all over again, and as many times over, until Strasberg was satisfied.
The Marilyn Monroe-Paula Strasberg ordeal exasperated director Wilder especially if he liked the scene but was over-ruled by Strasberg, who sat Buddha-like as the immovable and irrevocable judge. As co-star, Tony Curtis, remembers, “She (Marilyn Monroe) would do a shot, then she wouldn’t look at Billy Wilder the director, she’d immediately look in the direction of Paula Strasberg, her acting coach.” Billy Wilder had his fill and would obliquely make his presence known, through an act of outright sarcasm, and serve notice that the MonroeStrasberg game was up. As Curtis
further explains, “And Billy Wilder caught on as Paula would nod her head in approval. So, right in the middle of a scene, once he (Wilder) said “cut,” he’d immediately say ‘How was that for you, Paula?’”
From that day onward, Wilder would call the shots good or bad, albeit with much contention coming from Marilyn herself. Marilyn, of and by herself, would prove more than a handful. The overall experience left director Billy Wilder a total mental wreck. “We were in midflight, and there was a nut on the plane,” he would say with intense exasperation. The San Diego movie connection with Marilyn Monroe would prove a war zone of sorts. Marilyn’s husband, Arthur Miller, blamed Some Like It Hot director Billy Wilder for Marilyn’s second miscarriage. Wilder shot back a telegram, “Had you dear Arthur been not her husband but her writer and director, and been subjected to all the indignities I was, you would have thrown her out on her can, thermos bottle and all, to avoid a nervous breakdown. I did the braver thing. I had a nervous breakdown!” In turn, Marilyn ultimately blamed husband Miller for her miscarriage.
Monroe’s post Coronado life would quickly decline after she left San Diego in 1958.
The Monroe-Miller union was, since the beginning, ill-conceived. In time, Marilyn would accidentally come upon her husband’s open notebook. The contents would nearly destroy her, emotionally. In the notebook,
Miller expressed great fear that he would decline as a writer because of his association with Marilyn’s pitiful and widely-publicized decadent life of drugs, overdoses, and hospital stays. He regretted ever having married her. Further destruction was found in Miller’s words that, “The only one I will ever love is my daughter,” all of which a crushed Marilyn shared with her closest friends. She would soon divorce third and final husband, Arthur Miller, on January 24, 1961, after a turbulent marriage which lasted less than 4 ½ years, barely edging out the longevity of her first marriage to James Dougherty, which lasted four years and 3 months. (Her second marriage to famed baseball player, Joe DiMaggio, was a swift 9 months in its duration.)
Weeks after her divorce from Arthur Miller, Marilyn would be committed to a mental hospital in February of 1961. Her personal letters offer a nightmarish sight-and-sound experience within the Payne Whitley Psychiatric Clinic where she spent a hellish four days locked in a padded cell. The terrifying and degrading experience was captured on six handwritten pages which remained hidden amongst a collection of 200 of her most personal diary entries. Her fall from world’s most adored sex symbol to debased mental patient was anguish beyond words.

dogs and get them into our control.”
Once they are in custody, authorities will look the dogs over for evidence that could link them to the horse mauling.
Teri Figueroa, of the Union Tribune reports that the owner has had previous problems with his dogs getting loose. In 2015, he relinquished a pit bull to the Humane Society after the dog had repeatedly gotten free — escapes that had generated multiple complaints. The agency worked with the dog for several weeks, but could not quash the escape attempts. The animal was thus not a candidate for adoption, and was euthanized. It had no record of attacks. Some time after that, the dog owner — who still had one pit bull, a male — got another pit bull, a female. Those are the two dogs suspected of mauling the horse. Typically, when dogs are together, one of them takes the lead. The alpha dog in the horse mauling appears to be the male dog.
Anyone who believes they have spotted the pair can call the Humane Society dispatch line from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. at (619) 243-3466. After hours, contact the sheriff ’s department. At press time, the Humane Society said they still had not definitively identifed the two pit bulls in question as the two that attached the horse but the invesigation is continuing.
They report the owner of the put bulls is cooperating with law enforcement in their investigation.

Reflecting on Our Many Blessings
In this season of Thanksgiving, we Americans have a great deal to be thankful for. God's blessings and gifts are all around us, even when we may not notice them. Our nation is founded on the rule of law, with checks and balances that guarantee our Godgiven freedoms are protected. Our peaceful elections and lawful transfer of power remain the envy of the world.
We should also be thankful that we are among the most generous people on earth. Just a quick look around the 75th Assembly District provides multiple examples of our giving, supportive nature. Solutions for Change, which seeks to provide families in need with a permanent solution for homelessness, is one outstanding example. The Elizabeth Hospice, the oldest and largest nonprofit hospice
and palliative care provider for children and adults in San Diego County, has served the needs of thousands of San Diego County families for almost 40 years. Groups serving our veterans include the Veterans Association of North County, which provides job placement services, education, training and counseling for all North County veterans, and Homes for Our Troops, which builds mortgage-free, specially designed homes for our nation’s most severely injured veterans. And there are so many other organizations helping people every day here in North County. When we give thanks to our Creator for the many blessings bestowed upon us as free human beings, we should also remember the many outstanding individuals, businesses and charitable institutions that reach out to those in need throughout this region. It’s an honor to serve such outstanding people in the California Legislature.

Her forced baths at the psychiatric clinic were sexually degrading in the presence of both men and women. She was made to take baths against her will. When she refused, “Two hefty men and two hefty women” picked her up by all fours and physically took her by elevator to the hospital’s seventh floor. Marilyn remembered in her personal journal, “I must say that at least they had the decency to carry me face down. I just wept quietly all the way there.” In these exclusive documents that would be auctioned off, she speaks of how former husband, Joe DiMaggio, physically pushed aside the psychiatric doctors, and rescued her from her padded cell.
The Lost Archives of Marilyn Monroe continue to be sold. During Julien’s Auction on December 6, 2014, public fascination continued with high-dollar purchases. The recent Beverly Hills auction of Marilyn Monroe’s lost love letters to Joe DiMaggio fetched $78,125. A handwritten letter to third spouse, Arthur Miller, sold for $43,750. Marilyn’s personal handwritten entries into her personal diary record how she suspected foul play in her own death and even how her murder would be made to look like poisoning. Marilyn’s history of eccentric behavior and drug abuse afforded her little credibility and sober consideration in her suspecting her own murder by poison.
However, her unexpected death in her Brentwood, Los Angeles home on August 5, 1962, would be ruled death by poison, though it was said to be self-inflicted. Coroner, Theodore Curphey, officially ruled it a “probable suicide.”
Uncanny as it may seem, Marilyn did die of poisoning, as she feared, and as stated clearly in her private writings, all recently released for the first time. Except, the official investigation back in 1962 gave it a different spin from her own – it was ruled that she poisoned herself by purposely ingesting 40 barbiturate pills. Convoluted details surrounding Monroe’s life made “probable suicide” indigestible to many insiders. Her involvement with President John F. Kennedy and his brother, Robert, is well documented. Her brushes with dangerous and shady figures, such as union leader, Jimmy Hoffa, and mob boss, Sam Giancana, is equally well-known.
Was Marilyn Monroe, indeed, murdered? All aforementioned circumstances make a rather interesting set of possible motives, intriguing circumstances, and potentially-embarrassing truths, should all facts be brought into the bright sunlight of scrutiny – especially if the gullible and naïve are checked at the door. Marilyn Monroe’s death greatly differed from the usual pattern of suicides. Prior to her death, she was brightly optimistic and she had rediscovered peace and harmony within
herself. Her friends spoke of this and how she was planning new, exciting movie projects. She was looking forward to her future. Her newlydiscovered letters also confirm this. Her personal notes attest that she finally found happiness, and her rediscovery of self-reliance and confidence in solving her own inner problems. She was planning to remarry Joe DiMaggio and even left a letter expressing her hope to make him happy, this second time around.
Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
he was planning and executing retaliatory moves, including an effort to relieve and reinforce Wake Island that could have led to an early clash between American and Japanese carrier forces.
Then, her letter broke off in midsentence.
Her 5’ 5” nude body was found dead, face-down on her bed. Her hand was still grasping the telephone. Her last intention of calling someone was never completed. Whomever she was calling in her last desperate moments of life, and whatever urgent message she wished to convey, will never be known. One thing is considered certain by all accounts -- she was attempting to call for help. Many surmise that she was fighting to stay alive.
The recent release of her documents are a bonanza find for Marilyn Monroe biographers everywhere, as well as for her die-hard fans who – to this day – wish to rationalize her suicide; perhaps even to rescue her from such an ignominious death by uncovering new evidence of conspiracy and murder. It was said that the suicide rate in Los Angeles doubled after she died. Newspaper circulations expanded during news of her shocking death at age 36.
Less than forty-four months after departing the world-famed Hotel Del Coronado, Marilyn Monroe would be no more. Yet, her legacy, broken childhood, tormented marriages, and brief stardom shot across our horizon like a brightly-burning comet.
The Scapegoats of Pearl Harbor
As in all tragic events, especially during war time, blame finds its way to someone’s doorstep, deserved or not. Such was the case for the two commanding officers in charge of the Navy and Army command forces at Pearl Harbor in December 1941.
On Feb. 18, 1941, Admiral Husband E. Kimmel, commander of the Pacific Fleet (CINCPACFLT), suspected something was going to happen and fired off the following message to the Chief of Naval Operations in Washington, D.C: “I feel that a surprise attack (submarine, air, or combined) on Pearl Harbor is a possibility, and we are taking immediate practical steps to minimize the damage inflicted and to ensure that the attacking force will pay.” Historical Naval records indicate Washington didn’t take Kimmel’s warning all that serious – or did they? Some 10 months later, Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor occurred on Dec. 7, 1941, and resulted in the deaths of 2,403 Americans.
Shakespeare’s words eerily fit Marilyn Monroe’s life: “I have touched the highest point of my greatness; And from the full meridian of my glory, I haste now to my setting: I shall fall like a bright exhalation in the evening, And no man see me more.”
Admiral Husband E. Kimmel

Edwin T. Layton related during the attack: Kimmel stood by the window of his office at the submarine base, his jaw set in stony anguish. As he watched the disaster across the harbor unfold with terrible fury, a spent .50 caliber machine gun bullet crashed through the glass. It brushed the admiral before it clanged to the floor. It cut his white jacket and raised a welt on his chest. "It would have been merciful had it killed me," Kimmel murmured to his communications officer, Cmdr. Maurice "Germany" Curts. Kimmel was relieved of his command 10 days after the attack. At the moment
General Walter Short
On Dec. 17, 1941, Gen.Walter Short was removed from command of the U.S. Army's Hawaiian Department as a result of the Japanese attack on the Hawaiian Islands. Short was ordered back to Washington, D.C. by Army Chief of Staff George C. Marshall.
In 1946, Short testified on his own behalf before Congress about the 1941 attack. Unlike some of his predecessors in Hawaii, Short was more concerned with sabotage from JapaneseAmericans on Oahu. This led to Army planes parked outside of their hangars so they could be more easily guarded. However, this made them easy bombing targets and many were subsequently destroyed the morning of the attack. In a 1964 interview Admiral Chester Nimitz, who took over as commander of the Pacific Fleet three weeks after the attack, concluded that "it was God's mercy that our fleet was in Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7. If Kimmel had "had advance notice that the Japanese were coming, he most probably would have tried to intercept them. With the difference in speed between Kimmel's battleships and the faster Japanese carriers, the former could not have come within rifle range of the enemy's flattops. As a result, we would have lost many ships in deep water and also thousands more in lives." Robert Stinnett, a World War II U.S. Navy veteran makes the case that President Roosevelt wanted the Pearl Harbor attack to happen so public opinion would be aroused to support America's entry into the war. Kimmel and Short, he argued, were deliberately kept ignorant. The President and others, he asserted, knew of Japan's intent to attack Pearl Harbor and even the date and time. Kimmel, he argues, was given deceptive orders and denied resources such as access to MAGIC for the purpose of keeping him in the dark. But, most historians reject Stinnett's thesis. Admiral Kimmel died at Groton, Conn. on May 14, 1968. General Short retired from active duty on February 28, 1942, with the permanent rank of major general. After he retired from the Army, he headed the traffic department at a Ford Motor Company plant in Dallas, Texas. He retired in 1946 and died in 1949 in Dallas of chronic heart ailment. On May 25, 1999, the United States Senate passed a non-binding resolution exonerating Kimmel and Short by a 52 to 47 vote. The resolution stated they had performed their duties “competently and professionally” and that the Japanese attacks were “not a result of dereliction of duty.”

REMEMBERING Ryan Leitzke 11/25/1983 ~ 05/30/1993
Remember Ryan on his birthday. Vista’s UNSOLVED Hit & Run, 3000 block of Buena Creek Road. ~~~~~~~~~~~~ I went to Ryan’s “conscience prodding” roadside memorial to decorate for Halloween and found a “MOM” ring which was left there. The names ‘Jackie and Stephanie’ were engraved on each side. There was no note. I want to say Thank You to whomever left it there. I will wear it on every Ryan’s birthday and death anniversary. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ We have been touched throughout the years to find that on holidays, others have placed toy trucks, a vase, small figures, a skateboard, and ladybug items (Ryan was a ladybug in his preschool play.) Tears of gratitude flow each time we see tokens of love still being left there after all these years. May God bless each of you abundantly for doing so! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ “My flesh will rest in HOPE” Psalm 39.7 Any leads on the unsolved hit & run can be text or called into Mom at (760) 522-7445 social at 11:30am and a buffet lunch at 12noon, at the Bernardo Heights Country Club, 16066 Bernardo Heights Parkway, Rancho Bernardo. Cost of the luncheon for non-members is $25/person. Members pay $110 for six lunches January thru June, and $110 for six July thru December, at approximately $18/person; fees pro-rated.

Library’s “Holiday Food for Fines Program” Begins - Escondido Public Library’s annual Holiday Food for Fines Program runs Monday, November 28, through Saturday, December 31, 2016. The program provides Library patrons with the opportunity to clear up to $20 in fines from their account.

Nonperishable, nutritious, pre-packaged items such as canned goods, pasta, sauces, and peanut butter credit up to $1.00 worth of fines per item. Non-nutritious, perishable, expired, or damaged items cannot be accepted. Customer Services Supervisor, Linda Weber, explains “This event is a wonderful way for Library patrons to not only clear some of their fines, but to also give back to their community by helping those in need.

Some don’ts: Don’t greet him with problems or complaints. Don’t complain if he is late for dinner. Count this as minor compared with what he might have gone through that day. Make him comfortable. Have him lean back in a comfortable chair or suggest he lie down in the bedroom. Have a cool or warm drink ready for him. Arrange his pillow and offer to take off his shoes. Speak in a low, soft, soothing and pleasant voice. Allow him to relax and unwind. Listen to him. You may have a dozen things to tell him, but the moment of his arrival is not the time. Let him talk first. Make the evening his. Never complain if he does not take you out to dinner or to other places of enter-

IT IS OVER – NOW WHAT?
It is over. The last months have been filled with dynamic activities. The Chicago Cubs won the World Series after trying 108 times. The Presidential election outcome surprised just about everyone, even the candidates. Thanksgiving Day has left us with some additional weight. Such is life. We plan, wait, act, and then move on. Every day millions go through this experience, some to retire and enjoy the fruits of their labors, get married, have families, graduate, or live lives of dismay and regret. What is next? December is a month of waiting. A great amount of effort goes into the month. All the plans for Christmas, with decorations, trees, gifts, cards, musical programs, special church services and more, are filled with anticipation
Actually, however, the waiting and anticipation all began centuries ago. Ever since Eve ate that fabled fruit in the garden and gave it to her husband to eat, the world has been in waiting. It has been longing and searching for a better life, either from within or without. The within is the attempt to find the human genius that would solve and cure diseases, hate, ignorance, wars, famine, plagues, and every other malady known to man. The without is a desire for help and solutions beyond the human being. That need is met in the Christmas story with the promise of God sending a Savior into this world. The angels sang that refrain, “Fear not, for I bring you good news of great joy to all people, for unto you is born this day a Savior who is Christ the Lord.” What man could not do, God does. This fulfillment of longing is finally over after thousands of years in waiting. While there is much that is over, and will continue to be so, we wait as did those who experienced the first Christmas for the final act of God to set everything right. It is our faith, hope, and expectation that makes it so.

Malware and You. Part I
“Malware,” short for “malicious software,” is the generic name for programs that infect devices for purposes other than those of the legitimate user. Malware is of no benefit to the user but seeks instead to accomplish some purpose for the perpetrator. Various types of malware include viruses, worms, Trojan horses, ransomware, spyware, adware, scareware etc. Today we will start with the basic malware defense strategies. 1. Anti-virus/malware software. Whether you use a free Antivirus program or a paid version you must keep it up to date and check it regularly to be sure it is active and running. You should also activate your Window’s or anti-virus program’s firewall. 2. Keeping Your System Security
Current. With Win 10 updates are no longer optional, they are mandatory. With Win 7/8 updates are optional and you may either enable the automatic update feature or run them selectively. In the past we have recommended enabling “automatic updates.” We no longer make this recommendation because Microsoft updates for Win 7/8 have become more trouble than they are worth. Their security and bug-fix potential is now far outweighed by the disruptiveness of these “updates,” many of which have little or no constructive value to the user and are implemented to gain Microsoft more access to your browsing patterns and personal data.
3. Secure Your Network & Keep Your Personal Information Safe. Many PCs access files, printers, or the Internet via your home or business Wi-Fi “hot spot.” Make sure your passwords are strong. Never broadcast an open Wi-Fi connection. Don’t broadcast your SSID (the password to your Wi-Fi network. Hackers may compile your information and personal data from account to account until they have enough info to access your bank acct. or steal your identity. Be cautious on chats and social media. Lock down all your privacy settings, and avoid using your real name or identity on “chats.” Use multiple passwords. When using open Wi-Fi hot spots like Starbucks, McDonalds, the library, and airports, never access your personal password protected sites. The bad guys are listening.

Annual Tots ‘N Trucks Event Huge Success - The 6th Annual Tots ‘N Trucks event at Kit Carson Park in Escondido drew an estimated crowd of over 2,000 as kids of all ages took the opportunity to climb and explore trucks of all shapes and sizes, fire trucks, police cars, dump trucks, garbage trucks, paving trucks, and more. The event was hosted by the Escondido Community Child Development Center (ECCDC) and Escondido East Rotary Club. The Title sponsor was Sculpt Nouveau of Escondido.

Let your curser hover over suspicious links to see where it’s taking you before you click it. If you download a file from the Internet, an email, a file-sharing service or any FTP site (file transfer protocol), scan it before you run it.

not sufficient. Malware that infects your PC will infect a back-up drive if it is connected. The safest back-up is one of the “cloud storage” services like Carbonite. Your files are safe and accessible, the cost is less than $60 a year and it is automatic. If you do use an external back-up, back it up frequently and disconnect it when you’re done. Don’t leave your backup device connected. These are basic practices everyone should follow but what do you do when you get that official looking screen that says your PC has a problem and you need to click on a link or dial a phone number for assistance?
