Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe (1960)

Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe, two icons of the silver screen, shared their very last scene in what was the final film appearance for both in “The Misfits”, in which Marilyn’s character asks, “How do you find your way home in the dark?”, to which Clark Gable’s character replies, “Just head for that big star straight on. The highway’s under it. It will take us right home.” Clark Gable would die less than a month later on November 16, 1960 before the film’s release date of February 1, 1961. Marilyn Monroe died less than two years later on August 5, 1962.

And that’s when the fight started…

 

And that's when the fight started...

 

My wife was standing nude, looking in the bedroom mirror.
She was not happy with what she saw and said to me,
“I feel horrible. I look old, fat and ugly. I really need you
to pay me a compliment.”
I replied, “Your eyesight’s damn near perfect.”

And that’s when the fight started…

 
The difference between men and women.
