The Misfits

Dir: John Huston: USA 1961 (125 mins) (Member’s Request)

The last film of both Marilyn Monroe and Clark Gable. It went from box-office flop to cult status within the space of a year. Written by Monroe’s then husband, Arthur Miller, the film is a grey, solemn and at times pretentious piece about three drifters who hunt horses destined to be food. Somehow the flat, arid Nevada landscape mirrors the character’s bleak existence and sets the overall mood of despair and depression.
