Gay and Guido decide to round up some wild mustangs to earn some money. They hire Perce Howland (Montgomery Clift), a slow-witted rodeo rider, to help them round up the mustangs. Roslyn gets upset when she sees Perce getting hurt in the rodeo. After the rodeo, the group goes out to the desert to round up the mustangs. Roslyn gets even more upset when she finds out the mustangs are going to get turned into dog food.

* RealityIsUnrealistic: Creator/EliWallach, a notable teetotaller, once discussed in an interview how he was in a scene where Guido is drunkenly watching Roslyn dancing with Gay. Creator/JohnHuston came up to Eli, and told him that the most drunk that Huston had ever been was when he tried to stay sober on a horseback. Eli realized that Huston was giving him acting advice.

''The Misfits'' became a legendary TroubledProduction. Temperatures in the Nevada desert were 120 degrees in the sun. Director Huston battled a drinking problem and kept passing out on set. Marilyn Monroe's out-of-control addiction to pills was an even bigger problem, which often left her unable to work or unfit to work if she actually made it to the set. At one point production was halted for two weeks while Monroe went to detox to get clean. Her collapsing marriage to Miller--she announced their separation a week after the production concluded--was another problem. Montgomery Clift was going blind. The only main cast members who seemed fine throughout were Eli Wallach and Thelma Ritter.

** Gay dotes on Roslyn gently so that she will want him, but has a slightly sociopathic side shown when he tries getting a gun to shoot a rabbit, and fawns over Roslyn in a disturbingly lecherous manner.



* CovertPervert: Gay, who secretly admires Roslyn's behind while she's riding.



* {{Jerk with a Heart of Jerk}}: Guido only defends Roslyn from a pervert and offers to stop the mustang rounding so he can have her for himself.
