Vintage Photos of Marilyn Monroe on the Set of ‘The Misfits’ (1960)

The Misfits is a 1961 American drama film with a screenplay by Arthur Miller which was directed by John Huston. It stars Clark Gable, Marilyn Monroe, Montgomery Clift, Thelma Ritter, and Eli Wallach. It was the final film appearance for both Gable and Monroe, and the third-to-last for Clift.

The plot centers on a recently-divorced woman (Monroe) and her time spent with a cowboy (Gable) and his friend (Clift) in the Western Nevada desert in the 1960s. The movie was not a commercial success at the time of its release but received positive critical comments for its script and performances.

Below are some photos of Marilyn Monroe on the set of The Misfits taken by John Huston in Nevada, 1960.
