Just image!! It was August 1960 when Hollywood’s favorite stars, Marilyn Monroe, Clark Gable, Montgomery Clift, Eli Wallach and Thelma Ritter arrived in Dayton, Nevada to film the “The Misfits” directed by Hollywood notables: director, John Huston, producer, Frank Taylor and Arthur Miller, Marilyn’s husband then, who wrote the movie script specifically for her performance.
