The Misfits 50th Anniversary Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: Expertly directed by John Huston (The Maltese Falcon) from a screenplay by Pulitzer Prize winner Arthur Miller, The Misfits is “a probing, exciting drama” (The Film Daily) of honesty, intensity and sheer poetic brilliance. Divorced and disillusioned, Roslyn Tabor (Marilyn Monroe) befriends a group of misfits, including an aging cowboy (Clark Gable), a heartbroken 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.

Review: This is the second Marilyn Monroe film to be released on blu-ray this month!  The Misfits is an epic film that represents the final on-screen appearances from both Clark Cable AND Monroe!  This film takes place mostly on a ranch, where down and out divorcee Monroe meets ex-cowboy Gable.  The chemistry between the two was fantastic and the performances were beyond amazing.  If you haven't seen this classic film, you need to!  The blu-ray looks fantastic.  This film is primarily daytime outdoors shots and these look great with little to no grain.  The colors pop as much as you can expect and the sound is wonderful.  This blu-ray release celebrates the 50th anniversary of the film.

Interest Range: Vintage, Clark Gable, Marilyn Monroe
