The Misfits – 1961 – English

Film directed in 1961 by John Huston, and starring Clark Gable, Marilyn Monroe, Montgomery Clift, Eli Wallach, Thelma Ritter, Estelle Winwood, James Barton, Kevin McCarthy…


Synopsis: Depressed divorcèe, Roslyn Tabor (Monroe), and Gay Langland (Gable), an aging ex-cowboy, who survives by rounding up and catching mustangs (and selling them to slaughterhouses). Wallach plays Guido, Langland’s pilot partner, and Clift plays Perce Howland, a drifter rodeo rider.


Review: This is a one of a kind film experience which has taken on even more depth with our hindsight into the lives of its creators. Written by Monroe’s then husband, Arthur Miller, and produced as their marriage was ending, it provides Monroe with the role of her life.

There are many great moments in the film, the most famous being her tirade against the cruelty and dishonesty of the men in her life. You will never forget her cries of “Murderers!” , even more horrifying now, given the suspicions surrounding her death. But for me the most unforgettable moment takes place in the cab of the truck when Eli Wallach’s character offers to save the lives of some horses if she will give up the man she is with and live with him. The look on her face changes from hope to horror as she realizes he’s bartering the horses’ lives for hers: “You have to get something in order to act human?!” she spits out at him. It’s a great script, cast perfectly, and speaks as sadly and as eloquently to us now as it did forty years ago.
