    Description

    Clark Gable's personal The Misfits script, plus photo inscribed to Arthur Rosson Jr. (United Artists, 1961) Clark Gable's personal script of The Misfits, given to Arthur Rosson, Jr. on the last day of filming, along with the last autographed picture Gable is believed to have ever signed, to complement the script. Rosson states in LOA that Gable gave it to him on a Thursday, and then, the following Sunday, Gable had a heart attack and passed 10 days later. The two struck up a brief friendship based upon Gable's past association with Rosson's highly respected cinematographer uncle Harold, who had been married to Jean Harlow around the time Gable worked with both of them. Script by Arthur Miller is studio mimeo 168pp in printed original wraps, dated September 9, 1960 (including some canary corrections at end), and shows obvious signs of on-set use and handling, though does not contain notations apart from cover identification "30RR". Portrait still of Gable is vintage gelatin-silver 8 x 10 in. with minor creasing and handling, signed boldly and neatly in blue ball-point "To Arthur Jr. Best of Luck Always- Clark Gable". Both very good to fine.
