Marilyn Monroe Plays Paddle Ball With the Vintage Trailer of the Day

Every day, come rain or shine or internet tubes breaking, Film School Rejects showcases a trailer from the past.

It’s truly fantastic that in this world of course, Clark Gable once made a movie with Marilyn Monroe. It’s even better that it’s an existential love story that plays like Street Car Named Desire in the middle of Nevada.

The bonus is that Monroe is insanely good at paddle ball, even if it does lead to bar fights.

It’s the 1960s answer to the Western genre, modernizing it and placing a gorgeous blonde bombshell right in the middle of Gable and Montgomery Clift to see who can make it out alive.
