The Misfits


Directed by John Huston, written by Arthur Miller and the last finished movie of both Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe, you can't help wishing that this film about the lingering death of the cowboy life was better. As it is, the intelligent script never really comes to life and Huston's black-and-white direction seems bored (a fantastic mustang round-up aside). At least the performances are effective, though: Gable with flashes of his old charm, Monroe delivering another aging unworldly loser and Montgomery Clift turning in a career best as a troubled young cowboy.
