The Misfits is an oft-misunderstood classic from legendary director John Huston that is as interesting for what it portrays onscreen as for what was going on during filming and what happened shortly thereafter. The film follows Gay Langland (Clark Gable), a long-in-the-tooth cowboy who is hatching a plan with his two compadres Guido and Perce Howland, played by Eli Wallach and Montgomery Cliff respectively. The plot of the film revolves around Langland's new girlfriend Roslyn (Marilyn Monroe) and her objection to the trio's plot to corral some misfit mustangs for slaughter in a local dog food factory as well as the love triangle that develops when Langland's supposed friends begin to show their amorous affections for his new woman. The filming ran into several delays not the least of which was the eventual divorce between Monroe and the writer of the film Arthur Miller. The film was the last for both Gable and Monroe and is one of the few films to give Monroe the chance to act in a purely dramatic role.moreless
