Showgirls Lorelei Lee and Dorothy Shaw travel to Paris, pursued by a private detective hired by the suspicious father of Lorelei's fiancé, as well as a rich, enamored old man and many other doting admirers.

She cannot tolerate seeing animal suffering, let alone human suffering. Coinciding with getting the divorce, Roslyn meets friends Gay Langland and Guido, a divorced aging grizzled cowboy and a widowed mechanic respectively.

"The Misfits" is literally about four people who don't fit into
society A divorcée (Monroe) meets cowboy Langland (Gable), who is
getting too old for his job They decide to live together A former
rodeo star (Clift) and an unemployed mechanic (Wallach) join in the
Huston's masculine images are stripped of their former glory, existing
only one rough exterior which fails to conceal what has been lost
Eventually the men agree to round up wild mustangs for a dog food
Scenes of the trio and Monroe speeding across the prairie in a
beaten-up truck, raising a hurricane of dust while attempting to rope
