One thing about The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day, it’s always full of interesting strangers.
Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
Today we look at some horseplay between the three stars of John Huston’s The Misfits. What’s there to say about Marilyn Monroe? She’s gorgeous, doesn’t get the credit she deserves for her talent at acting (and not just being beautiful) and at the top of her career with this picture, her last. Montgomery Clift is another talent lost way too early. He’s quite a brilliant performer.
I’m not the world’s biggest fan of Clark Gable, to be completely honest, but what I love about this photo is that you get a real sense of these people in-between scenes of a pretty serious character drama.
It’s a great shot. Click for the bigger version! Hope you enjoy it!
Tomorrow’s pic is a little brought down because when you knocked it thought you were the candy man!

For not choosing an Anne Francis or Pete Postlethwaite movie. But Clark Gable and Marlyn Monroe are both dead, so I guess that makes up for it.

...to have had even Marylin's shoulder on my crotch, as Mr. Gable had in this photo.

Eli Wallach's last powerful role (to memory) was Don Altobello in the (poor by comparison) Godfather 3. But another brilliant actor. John Huston is also in the middle of the frame - obscured by Gable's hat.

Just a great, great shot of Marilyn being happy. Fantastic. Captures the true beauty of her. I thought that might be Arthur Miller as well....any confirmation on this???? --G

where a cowboy touches Monroe's ass,Tuco sees it and tries to defend the lady's dignity by himself but he got his ass kicked,then he explains what happened to Big-Ears Gable and ofc the hero of the movie sets the things straight by kicking the cowboy's arse. At the end of the movie,Tuco since he hasnt learned his lesson yet about life and chicks,asks from Monroe to leave together and have a happy life,but Monroe spits on his face (metaphorically) and stays with the manly man Frankly I Dont Give A Damn Gable to spend the rest of their life fucking like rabbits. Good movie with a nice message about how chicks think and how "inadequate" men are going to be losers for their whole life.yep.

Like the metaphorical modern-day geek, Tuco is NOT a man, just a boy in a man's body. A *real* man would have defended the lady's honor and actually won that fight. Women want winners to spend the rest of their days with, not the losers. That's just how it goes in life. Chumps don't prosper, even the well-intentioned ones.

Wow, I'm gonna become a playwright.

Do you think it's possible for this real man to stand up to a guy to defend a woman's honor, but just be physically outmatched by this bad guy and still get his ass kicked? I dunno if you're just putting the message out there, or giving your actual opinion. Maybe the point is, to the judging woman, the guy who gets his ass kicked doesn't count as a real man?

Women want the man who will make the most successful children. that means the strongest,and often the meanest. No matter what anyone tells you, in general, genetics demands this of a woman. Why spend all your energy building and nurturing in your body for 9 months, and then spending at least 15-20 years taking care of a defective child. But there is actually a worse part to this. Since the strongest and the meanest most often times are terrible fathers and providers, the drive to produce successful children drive a woman to find a provider for her children, who may not be the "provider" of her children's genetic material. So many things in our society revolve around men's insecurity on this point. This is not an intentional evil, it is a genetically programed tendency ( that of course can be controlled by will power) just as males have a genetic program to go out and knock up as many females as possible to spread his genes as far and as wide as can be.Its the truth of life, life does not give a hoot about the individual beyond breeding and dying.

yeah I said it...Monroe was overrated as hell as far as looks go...just a chubby girl that capitalized on the blonde fad at the start...must say something about those chubby chaser Kennedys, no wonder they both got shot, they were distracted by some fatass in the front row/side of the road...Reagan was able to semi-dodge that bullet because he wasn't distracted by some white whale, he liked skinny witch looking bitches...Monroe hurt a nation...it's always the fat girls that get the Presidential dick

it took even great directors like like Billy Wilder like 50 takes just to get enough usable footage to cobble together a scene. <p> she was the Paris Hilton of her day. that people revere her in the same way as real talents like James Dean is really sad.
Jan. 4, 2011, 3:52 p.m. CST
why isn't it in apt comparison? she was famous for being famous. she was a sex symbol, and not much more. I guess she acted in legitimate movies, which Paris Hilton doesn't, but still.

1000 years from now you'll have to go to an encyclopedia or wikipedia to find out who Paris Hilton was. Marilyn will still be Marilyn. Just a sex symbol? Maybe. A fair actress at times? Did they have to cobble pieces of her acting together to get a decent movie? Sometimes. But some of what she was in (SOME LIKE IT HOT, SEVEN YEAR ITCH) she was wonderful in. She is what every other actress, model, singer WANTS to be. But they won't be. She is an icon.
