They also sometimes included scenes or brief dialogue passages that were remarkably prescient concerning environmental issues that came to public awareness in the future, in the period starting about 1970; examples include The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948) and Night of the Iguana (1964). Huston also directed The Misfits (film) with an all-star cast including Clark Gable, Marilyn Monroe, Montgomery Clift, and Eli Wallach.
