The Clark Gable/Marilyn Monroe movie "The Misfits" was not filmed on the Black Rock Desert. The movie was filmed on a dry lake bed near Dayton, NV, see 'Myth #60 - Myths and "The Misfits"'. Wikipedia and IMDB had this wrong. Many thanks to Warner Anderson from the High Rock Trekkers for cluing me in. It might be interesting to compare and contrast photos today of Misfits Flat with the photos below.
