Miller wrote this screenplay as a vehicle for his wife, Marilyn Monroe, a present for her after a miscarriage. In the drama, three cowboys are rounding up mustangs which are too small for riding, and therefore will be slaughtered for dog food--these horses are called "misfits". The cowboys use, instead of horses and lassos in the Western days of old, pickup trucks and airplanes. Monroe's part was that of Roslyn, a dance-hall girl who identifies with the horses.
