"Misfits", 1961
Original Vintage One Sheet Movie Poster (27x41")

Great original one sheet, with terrific graphics of the main stars.  A truly superstar studded classic. 
Very good condition with just some border wear and small tears primarily at top.  See enlargeable image above.....

The Misfits depicts the chance meeting and unlikely love affair in Reno, Nevada of a depressive divorcée, Roslyn Taber (Monroe), and Gay Langland (Gable), an aging ex-cowboy prone to gambling and surviving on mustang rustling. He then sells the horses to slaughterhouses for the manufacture of dog food. Wallach plays Guido, Langland's pilot partner, and Clift plays Perce Howland, who is a drifter rodeo rider.

The climax of the film takes place during extended, emotionally intense wrangling scenes on a dry Nevada lakebed.

The "misfits" of the title are both the weak horses which are most likely to be caught in the cruel roping, and the weak, sad characters of the story, unable to find satisfaction and picked off, one at a time, by fate.

For both Monroe and Gable this would be their last film. Gable would not live to see the film's release and Monroe would follow him in August 1962. I just read a biography by Frank Sinatra's long time assistant where it mentions some believed Marilyn's difficult behavior on the set contributed to Clark Gables heart attack during filming of "The Misfits"..
