Several weeks before principal photography began, the cast and crew gathered for wardrobe tests on a set that was a fully lit recreation of George Cukor 's Beverly Hills home. Production designer Gene Allen had sent a crew of men to Cukor's home at Cordell Drive to photograph the house and pool areas of the estate.
According to Allen, Cukor was photographed in the set's courtyard with the intent of using the photo as his Christmas card. Marilyn Monroe had been absent from the screen for over a year. In six hours of testing, Monroe wore some of her own clothes and some of those commissioned by Fox for the film. Kennedy at Madison Square Garden in honor of his birthday on May 29, The producer granted her permission Somethings Got To Give attend the gala, believing there would be no problems on the set.
On the first day of production, April 23,Monroe telephoned Weinstein to tell him that she had a severe sinus infection and would not be on the set that morning. Apparently she had caught the infection after a trip to New York City during which she had visited her acting coach, Lee Strasberg of The Actors Studioto go over her role. The studio sent staff Dr. Lee Siegel to examine the star at her home. His diagnosis would have postponed the movie for a month, Somethings Got To Give, but George Cukor refused to wait.
Instead he reorganized the shooting schedule to film scenes around his leading lady. At am, Cyd Charisse was telephoned and summoned to the Fox lot. Later that morning the first scene filmed involved Martin's character and Charisse, in an encounter with children building a tree house.
Over the next month filming continued mostly Somethings Got To Give Monroe, who showed up only occasionally due to fever, headaches, chronic sinusitis and bronchitis. The production fell 10 days behind schedule. As Kennedy's birthday approached, no one on the production thought Monroe would keep her commitment to the White House although she had gotten clearance on April 9 to appear at the event.

By this Somethings Got To Give, the production was over budget, and the script was still not completely finalized, despite writer Walter Bernstein's efforts. The script was rewritten nightly, with Monroe growing increasingly frustrated at having to memorize new scenes every day.
When not before the camera, she spent much of her time on the set in her dressing room with Paula StrasbergLee's wife. Upon her return from New York, Monroe decided to give the film a publicity boost by doing something no major Hollywood actress had done before; in the scene in which Ellen is swimming in the pool at night, she calls playfully up to Nick's bedroom window and invites him to join her. Nick tells her to get out of the pool, then realizes she is nude.
A body stocking was made for her, but Monroe took it off and swam around in only a flesh-colored bikini bottom. After filming was completed, Monroe was photographed in the bikini bottom, and without it. Had Something's Got to Give been completed and released as planned, Monroe would have been the first mainstream star shown topless in a Hollywood motion picture release of the sound era. Instead, that distinction goes to actress Jayne Mansfield in Promises! A studio illustrator drew a cartoon of a nude Monroe holding a towel, which read "Happy Birthday Suit ".
It was to be used as a birthday cardand signed by the cast and crew. It would be Monroe's last day on the set.

On Monday, June 4,Monroe phoned Henry Weinstein to inform him that she would not be on set that day once again. At a studio meeting, Cukor strongly endorsed her dismissal, and she was fired from the project on June 8, Life featured Marilyn, wrapped in a blue terrycloth robe, on its June 22, cover with the headline, "The skinny dip you'll never see.
The decision to fire Monroe was influenced by the progress of Fox's epic film Cleopatraalso in production that summer and far over its budget. Executives had planned a Christmas holiday release for Something's Got to Giveas a source of revenue to offset Cleopatra' s increasing cost.
Monroe quickly gave interviews and photo essays for LifeCosmopolitanand Vogue magazines. The Life interview with Richard Merymanpublished on August 3, — just two days before her death — included her reflections on the positive and negative aspects of fame. Fame will go by, and so long, I've had you, fame. If it goes by, I've always known it was fickle.
