A frustrated Rosalyn Tabor (Marilyn Monroe) flees to Reno, Nevada to get a quickie divorce from her husband. While trying to start over and discover herself, Rosalyn befriends three older men; a mechanic, a rodeo rider, and a worn-out cowboy (played by Montgomery Clift, Eli Wallach and Clark Gable in his last screen role). While Rosalyn learns a new kind of freedom in the desert of Nevada, her idealism threatens their friendship when she witnesses what they do for a living-capturing and taming wild mustangs. This movie was written for the screen by Arthur Miller for Marilyn, whom he was married to at the time.

THE MISFITS is a movie written by Arthur Miller and directed by John Huston in 1961.
Reno, Nevada. Roslyn Taber is a freshly divorced beautiful young woman from Chicago when she makes the acquaintance of Guido, a pilot, and Gay, an aging cowboy. She accepts to stay a while in Guido's unfinished house in the desert and soon falls in love with Gay. On their way to a rodeo, they meet Perce Howland and ask him to help them catch wild horses in the desert. Roslyn Taber, always sensitive to people's most hidden feelings, understands that Montgomery Clift's job is more a way to run away from his family than a passion. The next day, they find some horses and chase them. Roslyn is told that, in fact, the horses are sold to a butchery and will become dog's meat. This discovery destroys the ideal world she has lived in with Gay who refuses to please Roslyn by delivering the animals.
