Clark Gable dies in Los Angeles, 1960. The Misfits (1961), an Arthur Miller story of a Reno divorcee (Marilyn Monroe) and a couple of aging cowboys (Gable and Montgomery Clift) proved to be the last completed film for Gable and Monroe, and one of the last for Clift. “This is the best picture I have made,” the actor said about the movie, “and it's the only time I've been able to act.” About his costar, Gable remarked, “Everything Marilyn does is different from any other woman, strange and exciting, from the way she talks to the way she uses that magnificent torso.” On the last day of filming, his opinion was decidedly less fawning. "Christ, I'm glad this picture's finished,” he said. “She damn near gave me a heart attack." Shortly thereafter, Gable suffered a coronary thrombosis. Ten days later, he was dead.
