This book tells the story in pictures and words of the making of the legendary film The Misfits (1961), directed by John Huston and starring Marilyn Monroe, Clark Gable and Montgomery Clift.The film concerns an ex-stripper and recent divorcee, Roslyn Taber (Monroe) in Reno, Nevada, who falls in love with an aging cowboy, Gay Langland (Gable). Langland, a rugged individualist, teams up with a worn-out rodeo rider Perce Howland (Clift) to round up a herd of wild ?misfit? horses.
