‘The Misfits’ in Beverly Hills

The Misfits will be shown in widescreen at the Ahrya Fine Arts Theater in Beverly Hills on Sunday, August 14, as part of Laemmle’s Anniversary Classics Western Weekend, critic Kenneth Turan reports for the Los Angeles Times, describing Gable’s swansong (and also Marilyn’s, as it turned out) as ‘arguably the most surprising of the five films … as an elegiac modern Western, it can’t be beaten.’
