The Misfits (1961)

Labelled ‘the film that killed Clark Gable’ and, along with Marilyn Monroe, their final film.

Also starring the excellent Montgomery Clift, Thelma Ritter and Eli Wallach. While filing for a divorce, Roslyn Taber ends up meeting aging cowboy-turned-gambler Gay Langland and former World War II aviator Guido Racanelli. The two men instantly become infatuated with Roslyn and, on a whim, the three decide to move into Guido’s half-finished desert home together. When grizzled ex-rodeo rider Perce Howland arrives, the unlikely foursome strike up a business capturing wild horses.
