Still of the day: The Misfits

Sky Movies are running lots of Marilyn movies just now, but never THE MISFITS. I used to be obsessed about this 1961 John Huston film when I was younger, and saw it lots of times in that pre-video world - I had to go to any screening of it. Its one I need to see again now, before too long. Lots on it at MM labels. 
And here's Thelma .....


  1. Love this one. So many broken characters trying hard to function in the world. Marilyn proves what a gifted dramatic actress she was here. Both she and Monty seem so fragile and raw in this. Maddy

  2. In addition to the actors pictured, Eli Wallach gives a very good performance, too.

  3. Yes, it was fascinating seeing Eli Wallach age into that wizened old man (he lived to be 98) - his Guido is a fascinating character here too. It was good to see John Huston and Arthur Miller (doing a book signing) in their later years.
