MISFITS, THE (1961) Marilyn Monroe and Clark Gable


Vintage original 10 x 8″ (25 x 20 cm.) black-and-white single weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, USA. Clark Gable, Marilyn Monroe, Montgomery Clift, Thelma Ritter, Eli Wallach, dir: John Huston; United Artists. A beautiful and haunting film, so well-written (Arthur Miller) and so well-played (by actors who truly knew what it felt like to be the characters they portrayed) and all under the creative direction of John Huston. Husband Miller wrote the role of the lost-in-life Roslyn Taber for wife Monroe, but their relationship deteriorated during the filming. Here is a romantic moment between the two legendary stars. Clark Gable was very patient with Monroe’s insecurities, which led to great delays in filming. It would be the last film each of them would complete. Copyright and credit information is on the bottom white margin of photo coded 61/47. Two creases at top right corner. ABOUT FINE.
