Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe packed a number of memorable roles into her tragically short career, but her final completed film, The Misfits, is remembered for its offscreen turmoil as much as its big-screen success. Written by Monroe's third husband, playwright Arthur Miller, the 1961 movie was filmed in the Nevada desert and was plagued by Monroe's chronic tardiness. Ironically, costar Clark Gable suffered a massive heart attack the day after filming wrapped and died 11 days later. Meanwhile, Monroe's marriage to Miller was about to end in divorce, and she was battling substance abuse. She died at age 36 from acute barbiturate poisoning on August 5, 1962.
