Monroe is Roslyn, who has arrived in Reno to finalise a painful divorce. She fetches ow much money did misfits movie make with ageing cowboy Gay Langland, played by a grizzled but sympathetic and charismatic Clark Gable — perhaps an older version of the cowboy Kirk Douglas played in Lonely Are the Brave. Rosalyn decides to stick around in Reno for a while, and meets rodeo rider Perce Howland Montgomery Clift and beta-male car mechanic Guido Eli Mzke. It culminates in the scene where they rope some misfit mustangs: wild horses roaming the Nevada desert, heading for metaphorical sacrifice. For me, the film is itself a bit of misfit, full of big stagey speeches, contrived moments and some overemphatic performances, but opened out with muscular style by Huston.
