think your the saddest girl I ever meet," - Gay
"That's funny, I'm usually told how happy I am." - Rosyln
Divorced and disillusioned, Roslyn Tabor (Marilyn Monroe) befriends a group of "misfits" including an aging cowboy (Clark Gable), a heart broken mechanic (Eli Wallach) and a worn-out rodeo rider (Montgomery Clift). Through their live-for-the-moment lifestyle, Roslyn experiences her first taste of freedom, exhilaration and passion. But when her innocent idealism clashes with their hard-edged practicality, Roslyn must risk losing their friendship...and the only true love she's ever known.
This was the last movie that both Gable and Monroe appeared in. It was written
for Marilyn by her husband, Arthur Miller. I really like it. Perhaps it has more
to do with the luminosity of Marilyn than the story itself. It is definitely a
different character for Marilyn and she does a great job on this dramatic
role. Being Marilyn's final movie I think it is a MUST for any collection
and it is a film that leaves you wondering what she would have accomplished had
Review: The Hollywood Reporter
" Miss Monroe has seldom looked worse; the camera is unfailingly unflattering. But there is a delicacy about her playing, and a tenderness that is affecting."
New York Daily News
" Gable has never done anything better on screen, nor has Miss Monroe. Gable's acting is vibrant and lusty, hers true to the character as written my Miller."
