THE MISFITS
1961, MGM Repertory, 124 min, Dir: John Huston

Aching, elegiac drama of the vanishing American West, with Clark Gable (in his final film) as an aging cowboy who falls hard for divorceé Roslyn (Marilyn Monroe) while trying to round up a herd of wild mustangs with the help of former rodeo star Montgomery Clift. Beautifully scripted by Monroe’s former husband Arthur Miller, THE MISFITS was the last completed film in her all-too-brief career.
