The Misfits (1962)
September 27, 2014 - 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Directed by John Huston
Vastly praised yet rarely seen this powerful drama was written by Pulitzer Prize winner Arthur Miller (Death of a Salesman) as a gift for then-wife Monroe. The one-and-only Marilyn shines as a disillusioned divorcee in 1960’s Nevada who falls for an aging cowboy even as he struggles to sustain his romantic lifestyle. Beautifully shot and scored it is at once a haunting elegy for a lost era and a brave portrait of flawed people scrambling for self-worth. Gable and Monroe give what many critics consider their best performances … in their last screen roles!
