Facts about

According to writer Arthur Miller, Clark Gable had already seen a rough cut of the movie by the last day of filming, and said, "This is the best picture I have made, and it's the only time I've been able to act."
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.
Clark Gable's close friend John Lee Mahin tried to dissuade him from making the film, insisting the part required a better actor like Spencer Tracy. Gable initially felt out of place since Marilyn Monroe, Montgomery Clift and Eli Wallach all practiced the Method, which was like an alien religion to him.
