The Misfits (PG)
Director: John Huston. 1961
Starring Marilyn Monroe, Clark Gable and Montgomery Clift.
This is an underrated gem of a film, both poetic and harsh.
Three failed men come together in the Nevada desert to catch wild mustang to be slaughtered for dog food; an ageing cowboy, a bronco-buster and a former war pilot.
Roslyn is a down-on-her-luck divorcee who is looking for someone to latch on to.
Their values are questioned by Roslyn who is repelled by the cruelty of their calling.
There are excellent performances and powerful moments and the climax is magnificent as Roslyn (Monroe) finally gives vent to her frustrations with the horse killers, in fact the entire male gender?
This was Monroe’s and Gable’s last film, with Gable dying shortly after shooting.
Written by Arthur Miller, directed by John Huston and starring Marilyn Monroe, Clark Gable and Montgomery Clift - what's not to like?
