After being released from Columbia, Marilyn experienced several lean months. Often penniless, often hungry, she returned to modeling for some much-needed cash. The jobs, however, were few and far between.
One unsavory rumor about Marilyn’s attempts to stay afloat at this time claim she worked as a stripteaser in downtown Los Angeles. The rumor is likely to have originated with people who saw a young stripper named Dixie Evans, who performed at L.A.’s Mayan Theatre, and who bore a remarkable likeness to Marilyn. Evans would later exploit this resemblance by billing herself as “the Marilyn Monroe of Burlesque.”
Another, particularly persistent, rumor cites Marilyn as the “star” of a stag film entitled Apples, Knockers and Cokes; film historians have refuted this allegation. Some researchers, in fact, claim to have identified one of Playboy magazine’s early centerfold models as the performer in question. Coincidentally, this model later became a bit player at Columbia.
Despite her lack of a studio contract, Marilyn still had the support of her agent, Harry Lipton, as well as that of Karger, Lytess, and the Carrolls. Through the efforts of one of these associates, Marilyn auditioned for producer Lester Cowan for a walk-on bit in a Marx Brothers film, “Love Happy.” Marilyn was required mainly to catch the eye of Groucho Marx (who plays a private detective) as she sidles past him.
According to Marilyn, she practiced walking in front of a mirror for a week. Of the three girls who auditioned that day, it was Marilyn whom Groucho asked to repeat her interpretation of a sexy walk. Groucho approved and Marilyn landed the role.
As she glides toward the camera in the slow, undulating walk that would become one of her trademarks, Marilyn’s character tells Groucho, “I want you to help me … Some men are following me.” Groucho gives his patented leer and remarks, “Really? I can’t understand why!”
Many have attempted to explain “the walk,” including Natasha Lytess, who claimed she invented it for Marilyn, as well as Emmeline Snively, who insisted it was the result of weak ankles.
Gossip columnist Jimmy Starr believed Marilyn simply shaved a bit off one high heel in order to undulate in that manner, while Marilyn herself declared that she had always walked that way.
“Love Happy” is a minor, unfunny comedy that captured the Marx Brothers at the tail end of their film careers as a team. Still, Marilyn made enough of an impression on producer Cowan for him to release a publicity statement about her to columnist Louella Parsons. Cowan told Parsons that Marilyn was an orphan who had been raised in a series of foster homes in the Hollywood area.
Despite the brevity of Marilyn’s role in “Love Happy,” Parsons mentioned the starlet in her column. The writer became an early champion of Marilyn and later defended her on the occasions when Marilyn ran afoul of the press or her studio.
Marilyn agreed to travel to New York to help promote “Love Happy.” Having always heard that New York was much cooler than Los Angeles, Marilyn packed only heavy, woolen suits to wear to the various publicity functions.
Cowan and Marilyn arrived in New York in the midst of a summer heat wave. The producer graciously purchased a simple cotton dress for Marilyn, though some publicity shots show her wearing a woolen suit while eating three ice cream cones, supposedly in an effort to keep cool.
While in New York, she participated in a publicity stunt for Photoplay magazine, in which she presented movie fan Virginia MacAllister with a brand-new home that MacAllister had won in Photoplay’s “Dream House Contest.” Photographs of the presentation appeared in the magazine’s November 1949 issue.
Nearly simultaneously, Marilyn appeared in the October 1949 issue of Life magazine, in which she was photographed “emoting” with seven other Hollywood starlets. Together, these articles generated some much-needed publicity for the young actress.
She also landed a bit role in the forgettable Twentieth Century-Fox musical “A Ticket to Tomahawk,” though she was still working without a contract.
During Marilyn’s first three years in the film industry, she suffered rejection on both a professional and personal level; she sought the counsel of many who claimed to have an inside track to Hollywood success, only to be disappointed by their lack of results; she worked hard to please those who could help her; and in order to pay her bills, she was forced to make sacrifices and compromises others would later criticize. Looking back over Marilyn’s early film experiences, one is struck not by the glamor of Hollywood but by its harsh reality.
Fortunately, Marilyn’s small bit in “Love Happy” would prove to be more of a break than she anticipated. In addition to the attention she received by promoting the film in the East, she attracted the eye of respected Hollywood agent Johnny Hyde, who saw the comedy at an advance screening.
Hyde tracked down the agent of the beautiful blonde with “the walk” and negotiated with Harry Lipton to take over the contract of Marilyn Monroe. Marilyn needed an opportunity, she needed expert guidance, and she needed confidence. She would get all of that — and more — from agent Johnny Hyde.
Just before meeting Hyde, however, Marilyn was desperate for money. Learn about her nude photo shoot in the next section.

You have probably read a lot of immigration information about Australia during free time. Thus it would not be surprising that you might have already memorized every bit of basic fact about the country. However, there are actually still a lot more that you can learn about the land down under.
One of these bits of info that many would often want to is who are the famous celebrities that came form the country. Indeed, though Australia does have a lot of notable personalities, many people outside the country are often not familiar with them. And so, here are some of the Aussies that you have most likely seen before.
One of the most popular Australians to date is probably Steve Irwin, though most people from in and out of the country endearingly refer to him as the Crocodile Hunter. In fact it was the same show that launched him into international fame, as many tuned in to see his adventures with wild animals, particularly crocodiles. When he died in 2006, many people from both in and out of the continent expressed their sympathies to his family.
On on the other hand, another crocodile hunter has been hugely popular with many people around the world since the ’80′s, though this one is entirely fictional. In fact, the character of Mick ” Crocodiles” Dundee was so popular that it is even more well known than Paul Hogan, the actor who played the role in all of the Dundee films. Even today, many film fans consider Crocodile Dundee as one of the classic comedy films of all time. However, it would be interesting to note that the film is also considered as being the culprit for the many stereotypical notions about Australians today.
Moving on, another Australian actor that is fast becoming popular with both movie buffs and comic book fans nowadays is Hugh Jackman. Though starring in a host of other notable films, including the critically acclaimed “Australia” (which he co-starred with fellow Australian Nicole Kidman), Jackman is more well known for playing the clawed superhero Wolverine in the “X-Men” and “Wolverine” series of films. One interesting note here is that Jackman was initially not considered for the role because of his height, he is six feet tall while the character he was portraying was supposed to be only 5’2″. Through some clever camera tricks, the film makers were able to make him appear tall. The release of the first movie instantly launched him into stardom.
However, the first Australian personality that became famous worldwide is actually not a person in the literal sense. People got to know more about Australia and its wildlife when the show “Skippy the Bush Kangaroo” was shown overseas during the early seventies. Interestingly, contrary to the notion of many viewers that Skippy was a single animal, about eleven different kangaroos actually played the part. The kangaroos and their descendants still reside at Waratah Park in New South Wales, where the series was originally shot. The original sets are also still located here and now serve as an attraction to visitors. Interestingly, while the show was shown in more than a dozen countries during its run, it was never aired in Sweden, as psychologists argued that it might mislead many people into thinking that a kangaroo might be smarter than it really is.

Theo Annemann (1907-1942) is one of the most distinguished figures in the world of mentalism and mental magic. Along with Tony Corinda, Annemann’s work is considered a must-read for anyone wanting to start out in mentalism. The most popular collections of his many mentalism effects is published as Practical Mental Magic, a book you will find on any serious magician or mentalist’s bookshelf.
When you hear Annemann’s name spoken by people in the mentalism world you will always hear it twinned with words like ‘genius’, ‘legend’, even ‘hero’. Whether or not this is a fair representation of the man is debatable. Without question, Practical Mental Magic has been, and still is, required reading for anyone interested in performing and creating their own mentalism acts. But it is fair to say that Annemann, the man, was not without his faults.
Despite creating and publishing (the two don’t necessarily always go together) hundreds of awe-inspiring mentalism magic tricks, Annemann had a hard time performing them for large audiences. He suffered terribly from stage fright and turned to the bottle and drugs to overcome his nerves. Consequently, most of Annemann’s magic tricks are designed to be performed for small groups, such as a dinner party. The problem for Annemann was that working magicians, who bought original magic tricks, wanted spectacular effects to perform on stage in front of large audiences. In addition, to earn money Annemann would have to find an agent and get bookings for theatre performances. This is difficult to do if you don’t want to perform on stage!
Annemann was prone to depression and his failure to find work and the fame that goes with it took its toll psychologically. He was once so jealous of the vastly more popular Joseph Dunninger that he called on some press agents Dunninger had performed a publicity trick for and told them all how it was done. He even brought along the gimmicked chalkboard used in the trick and showed them all how it worked! On another occasion, Annemann was caught putting metal slugs in a New York subway turnstile. His defense was that the ‘coins’ were special magic gimmicks he’d mistaken for real money. It is very difficult to believe this was a genuine mistake as gimmicked coins don’t look like metal slugs. A combination of stage fright, alcoholism, drug abuse and financial worries took their tragic toll on Annemann resulting in him taking his own life in 1942.
Whatever you think of Ted Annemann the man, it is beyond question that his contribution to the art of mentalism was great. Practical Mental Magic was published posthumously and serves as a tribute to the man to this very day. If you are serious about getting started in mentalism and mental magic, this book is unquestionably a must-have.
