While photographing the making of "The Unforgiven " in 1960, she accompanied its director, John Huston, and his friends hunting ducks. Up the river, she noticed its star, Audie Murphy, in the water, having fallen out of his boat. She stripped to her underwear, reached Murphy, who was in the last stages of exhaustion, and hauled him ashore by her bra strap as the hunt continued uninterrupted.
Morath was on the Magnum team recording the making of The Misfits on location near Reno, Nevada. There, she met playwright Arthur Miller, who had initially written the film for his then-current wife, Marilyn Monroe. They married on February 17, 1962; Miller's friends agreed Inge was the first grown-up he had married. That September, their daughter Rebecca was born. According to Miller biographer Martin Gottfried, they later had a son, Daniel, who was born with Down Syndrome. Miller put Daniel in an institution in Roxbury, Connecticut. Morath visited him regularly, but Miller never did.
