The end of an era...,
This review is from: The Misfits [DVD]  (DVD)
At the time it was being filmed, The Misfits was supposed to be the next great American film. the screen play was written by Pulitzer prize winning Arthur Miller for his wife Marilyn Monroe. It was directed by the legendary John Huston and stared Iconic Hollywood actors Clark Gable, Montgomery Clift, and Monroe. For Monroe and Gable it would be there last film. it was received well by critics when it was released but with the public it was a box office failure. America was not ready for a modern western that showed the myth of the cowboy was over and those remaining trying to live by its code were Misfits. Over the years the movie has attained a cult status. A must see for fans of Monroe, Gable, Clift, and Huston and for fans of movie history. The movie heralded a new era in Hollywood. I also have to Recommend Misfits Country for a dramatic look behind the scenes of the making of this movie---a movie within a movie so to speak.
