Marilyn Monroe Playing Paddle Ball

This is a mini clip from the movie ‘The Misfits’ starring Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe. In this scene ‘Roslyn’ (Marilyn Monroe) engages in a game of paddle ball. The Misfits is a 1961 American drama film written by Arthur Miller, directed by John Huston, and starring Clark Gable, Marilyn Monroe and Montgomery Clift. The plot centers on a recently divorced woman (Monroe) and her time spent with a cowboy (Gable) and his rodeo-riding friend (Clift) in the Western Nevada desert in the 1960s. The motion picture was the final film appearance for both Gable and Monroe. Gable suffered a heart attack two days after filming ended and died ten days later, November 16, 1960. Monroe and Clift attended the premiere in New York in February 1961, while Arthur Miller attended with his two children. Within a year and a half, Marilyn Monroe was dead. The Misfits was the last completed film for both Monroe and Gable, her childhood screen idol. As a child, Monroe had often claimed that Gable was her father.
