The five male luminaries who were working with Marilyn Monroe during the making of "The Misfits" were approached by the editors of CORONET MAGAZINE and asked to comment on "the Monroe character riddle" as he alone had come to understand it. These men, John Huston, Eli Wallach, Clark Gable, Montgomery Clift and her (soon to be estranged) husband, Arthur Miller, who had written the script, did indeed have unique insights as to who the actress was and what made her tick. Not surprisingly, the most astute observations came from Miller:
"To understand Marilyn best, you have to see her around children. They love her; her whole approach to life has their kind of simplicity and directness."
