The Misfits (1961)
When you read about the making of this film, it’s a surprise that it ever got made. John Huston, the director, was compulsively gambling away the budget in Reno, Marilyn Monroe and the author of the screenplay, Arthur Miller, were busily destroying their marriage, Montgomery Clift was taking drugs and drinking heavily, and Clark Gable was in bad health. Because of a delay in the shooting schedule the filming was done at a time of the year when temperatures in the desert were often over 105 degrees.
