Featuring a post-screening conversation with guests from the Huntington Theatre Company's production of Fall, the fascinating untold story of Arthur Miller.

Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe both made their final film appearances in this melancholy modern Western, directed by John Huston from a screenplay by Monroe's then-husband, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Arthur Miller. 

Divorced and disillusioned, Roslyn Tabor (Monroe) befriends a group of misfits, including an aging cowboy (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.

After the screening of The Misfits, guests from the Huntington's new production of Fall will discuss the autobiographical elements of the film, and how they intersect with the telling of Miller's life in the new play, written by Bernard Weinraub.
