Hint: They’re Not All Superheroes. Or Women
OK, So We’ll Start in Themyscira
Because, Wonder Woman. But, seriously, the film also set a record as the highest single day gross for a movie directed by a woman EVER. And the biggest opening day for a female comic book superhero film. Oh, and the biggest opening weekend for a film directed by a woman.
And, according to a Forbes article Saturday morning, recapping opening day:
Fun fact, had men been barred from Wonder Woman screenings last night, the film still would have grossed more than the entire opening weekend of King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.

That’s Montgomery Clift, Honey!
The amazing 1961 film The Misfits was on cable the other night. Clark Gable, Montgomery Clift, Eli Wallach, and, of course, Marilyn Monroe. I’ve loved the film since I was a kid.
The showing was part of a Turner Classics Movie Spotlight on Clark Gable, who died just days after filming completed in November 1960 at age 59. It was the last film completed by both Gable and Monroe.
