DIRECTOR: JOHN HUSTON

CAST: CLARK GABLE, MARILYN MONROE, MONTGOMERY CLIFT, ELI WALLACH

The final film for stars Clark Gable, playing an aging cowboy, and Marilyn Monroe, as the divorcee who captures his heart, from a script by Monroe’s ex-husband, Arthur Miller. Unaware of the fates of the involved talent, the Magnum agency was exclusively contracted to photograph the shoot of Huston’s requiem for the American west, with Eve Arnold, Cornell Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Bruce Davidson, Elliott Erwitt, Ernst Haas, Erich Hartmann, Inge Morath, and Dennis Stock producing a stunning portfolio of images of the Nevada desert and the remarkable cast, including Montgomery Clift and Eli Wallach.

The Misfits is a screening as part of the series Magnum Photos at 70. Click here for more info.
