The Misfits has long been one of my favorite films. Though it wasn’t received well by critics or the public upon its release, it has since become a cult classic, partly because it was the final film for both Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe, but mostly because of the cast of characters that were created by Arthur Miller and directed by John Huston. At a cost of a little over $4 million, it was the most expensive black and white film to date.
I’m very excited to announce that Angela Allen, script supervisor on The Misfits, has kindly agreed to be interviewed for my upcoming book on “The Films of Marilyn Monroe”.
I highly recommend the three part video footage of the making of the film below. There was so much drama going on behind the scenes, it was a film unto itself!

I know that I saw the Misfits but can’t remember too much. I recall it being rather sad. I remember that Gable died soon after and people blamed Marilyn which was silly because he had a heart condition that wasn’t her fault. I find it interesting to watch these clips and thanks for posting.
I have the Misfits on DVD and I watch it at least once a year if not more and it’s on the list of my favorite movies. I can’t wait to read about the movie in your book.
Congratulations on the interview Michelle. 🙂
Thanks, Paul 🙂
