Facts about

Marilyn Monroe reputedly nagged then-husband Arthur Miller to cut scenes featuring Eli Wallach's character, for fear that he would upstage her own performance.
Director John Huston originally wanted Robert Mitchum to play "Gay Langland" but Mitchum didn't like the script and turned it down. Huston and writer Arthur Miller rewrote the script, but by the time Mitchum got to see the rewrite he had committed to another film. The role was instead offered to Clark Gable, who took it.
Clark Gable received $750,000 for the film plus $58,000 for each week of overtime.
