The Misfits

"How do you find your way back in the dark?" One of John Huston's most and haunting films, written by Arthur Miller and featuring the last screen roles of both Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe, deals with the fortunes of several characters in a battle of humanity being fought out during a roundup of wild horses on the desert. Unfortunately, critics did not receive this film with great laurels upon its release, but, with the passage of time, it has nevertheless managed to become appreciated as the memorable classic it has always been. "Just head for the big star straight on. The highway's right under it. It'll take us right home."
