I enjoyed this movie in the beginning, but the end of the movie I found disappointing..I feel like it fell short with the story at the end. But Marilyn Monroe did a great job in this...she was the only interesting part of this for me...
Just a warning that some scenes were rather horrific..and cruel, so be prepared for that. And these scenes had little point to them and went on forever....

What a great cast of Clark Gable, Marilyn Monroe, Montgomery Clift and Eli Wallach. This could be called a modern day western. All of these characters are here for the rodeo, but problems come up. Note that Clark Gable died during the film of The Misfits and they reworked the ending to explain his absence. Watch this movie, I think you will enjoy it.
