Rare footage from Marilyn Monroe's final film, the 1961-release The Misfits, fetched $60,000 at a movie memorabilia auction recently.
Two reels of the silent 8mm color film were sold to the highest bidder. The movie, an homage to the Old West, is monumental not for its story, but because it was the last for both blonde bombshell Monroe and fellow superstar Clark Gable. The rare footage includes a 47-minute film that shows the actors preparing for scenes and interacting with the crew, providing a candid behind the scenes glimpse into moviemaking action.
