Unknown ( Gay's dog )
Roslyn ( Marilyn Monroe )
Gay ( Clark Gable )
Perce ( Montgomery Clift )
Guido ( Eli Wallach )
Isabelle ( Thelma Ritter )
Gay is an aimless old cowboy, and he wanders the west with his dog. He can't seem to deal with the way the world is changing around him.
Guido is a guilt-ridden mechanic. He doesn't seem to realize that his self-loathing and bitterness are killing him slowly and adversely affecting the people around him.
Isabelle is a old and tired divorced woman. She's still on good terms with her ex-husband.
Perce is a run-down cowboy with a good heart. He can't seem to find his place in the world.
Roslyn is young and recently divorced. She feels alone and confused. Her values aren't for sale.
During a round-up of wild Mustangs, their true colors are exposed...
Roslyn: "How do you find your way back in the dark?"
Gay: "Just head for that big star straight on"
Isabelle: "I'm so sick and tired of myself"
Isabelle: "If you throw in your ring, you'll never get married again"
Roslyn: "The trouble is, I always end up back where I started"
Roslyn: "You could blow up the world, and all you would feel sorry for, is yourself!"

DO I WANT MY MONEY BACK?:
I did NOT appreciate this movie when I was younger, but now I like it a lot.
Who's bright idea was it, to call Clark Gable's character "Gay"?... Everytime somebody mentions his name I laugh. That detail has NOT aged well!
I think Clark Gable really kicks ass during the round-up scenes.
Marilyn Monroe really gets into her character, and when you watch her, it feels as if she's really in pain. She really did an outstanding job. Plus she looks very beautiful.
