The end of the west and a new kind of western,
The Misfits was touted as the next great American movie when it was being made. And why not? It was written by Pulitzer prize play write Arthur Miller for his soon to be ex-wife Marilyn Monroe. It was directed by the already legendary John Huston and stared Icon Hollywood actors Clark Gable, Montgomery Clift, and Monroe. For Monroe and Gable it would be there final Film. While received well by the critics at the time it was a box office failure. The average person was not ready for a modern day western that showed the myth of the west was over and those remaining trying to live by its code were just Misfits. Thankfully, over the years the movie has gained a cult classic status that it deserves. The Misfits is a must see for fans of Monroe, Gable, Clift, and/or Huston and for fans of movies and movie history, this movie did herald a new era in Hollywood.
