THE MISFITS
1961, MGM Repertory, 124 min, Dir: John Huston

Aching, elegiac drama of the vanishing American West, with Clark Gable (in his final film) as an aging cowboy who falls hard for divorceé Roslyn (Marilyn Monroe) while trying to round up a herd of wild mustangs with the help of former rodeo star Montgomery Clift. Beautifully scripted by Monroe’s former husband Arthur Miller, THE MISFITS was the last completed film in her all-too-brief career.


SAN FRANCISCO
1936, Warner Brothers, 115 min, Dir: W.S. Van Dyke

Clark Gable, Spencer Tracy and Jeanette MacDonald star in this lavish MGM production scripted by Anita Loos, a prime example of the studio system at its finest. An out-of-work singer (MacDonald) and a priest (Tracy) join forces to try to reform saloon owner Gable, but history intervenes in the form of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. The spectacular finale is still a wonder to behold.
