Marilyn Monroe and Clark Gable each gave moving and nuanced final performances in this western drama written by Arthur Miller and directed by John Huston. In the film, Marilyn plays a recent divorcee who falls in with an aging cowboy (Gable), two younger men (Montgomery Clift, Eli Wallach) and a scheme to capture wild mustangs in Nevada. Images taken by Magnum photographers during the filming of The Misfits are included in the Marilyn exhibition. (124 minutes)
