Absolutely! THE MISFITS is the only truly great Monroe vehicle. I'd love to have seen her in a script like Molly Ringwald's FRESH HORSES. Not that Ringwald wasn't great in that very disturbing tale. But the Marilyn thing would completely explained Andrew McCarthy's inability to let it go. She was never used as she should have been except for THE MISFITS script by her husband. And that was her last film, too.
