The Misfits

Beverly Hills, CA: United Artists, 1961. Vintage reference photograph from the 1961 film, showing actors Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe outside a Dayton bar, holding a hatful of collected cash bets to pay Montgomery Clift's rodeo fee. With the stamp of Les Artistes Associes on the verso, along with a stamp of a large capital "S."

The final completed film for Gable and Monroe before their deaths. Notoriously a trying endeavor for the actress, who was struggling with her drug problem and pending divorce from Arthur Miller and would often fail to show up to the set, and for director John Huston, who would drink and occasionally fall asleep while filming. Gable performed all of his own stunts, then suffered a heart attack only two days after filming ended and died ten days later.

Set and shot on location in Dayton, Nevada.

10 x 8 inches. Near Fine.
