Movie Teen.- dic 1949


Entre 1949 y 1950, Monty fue portada y protagonista de multitud de reportajes de revistas de cine. De hecho, me ha llamado la atención, la cantidad de revistas juveniles y de cine que proliferaban en esta época. No todas eran de calidad, muchas enfocadas a un público juvenil como he comentado y más cercanas al fenómeno fan que a la crítica cinematográfica.

Ésta que nos ocupa es un buen ejemplo de ello dado el nombre de la revista, Movie Teen, y el reportaje de portada The boys you should not date!. De todas maneras, Monty Clift sale irresistiblemente atractivo y prometedor.

Este número salió en diciembre de 1949. Monty acababa de estrenar The Heiress y se encontraba rodando A place in the sun.

Éstos son los datos de la revista:

(English text):

This is a December 1949 issue of MOVIE TEEN magazine with a cover of Montgomery Clift on it. Also has a 4 page article and a photo of him sitting in a movie theater with several adoring teen girls around him. Has a one page short article and photo of Kirk Douglas, Glen Ford, Ann Blyth, and John Derek with 1 page articles written each by Frank Sinatra and Susan Hayworth, both with a photo. Has other articles on pimples, dating, etc, the usual teen stuff but in a simpler time. Lots of ads.

Harry Crampton Collection. Harry was a graphic artist, with a keen ey for beauty, who became a movie press agent in the early years of film. In 2006he passed away in Torornto, Canada. He was in his late 8's
in his late 80's although nobody really knew how old he actually was. harry was an avid collector of vintage Hollywood magazines. He loved the 1920's and 1930's era and always dressed to the "hilt" adorned in attre from that era. Including appropiate hats, canes and colorful multi piece suits complete with suspenders and shoes to match, though he lived in Canada's most pretentious art district "Yorkville" harry would turn heads wherever he went in part because of his excesive cologne use. Harry Crampton was extremely friendly to all who knew him and passionate about both his collection and Hollywood stars. His unique specialness is missed by his friends and neighbors. He would be happy to know that his collection is being shared with other Hollywood collectors. Where the items can bring new life and beauty to their coleections.

These magazines were acqui
red thru a close friend of harry Crampton who was his next door neighnor. He was given the entire collection of almost 1,200 magazines and books 70% of the collection is from the 1920's-1940's.

The Right Profile
Lyric
Say, where did I see this guy?
In red river?
Or a place in the sun?
Maybe the misfits?
Or from here to eternity?

Everybody say, is he all right?
And everybody say, whats he like?
Everybody say, he sure looks funny.
Thats...Montgomery Clift, honey!

New York, New York, New York, 42nd street
Hustlers rustle and pimps pimp the beat
Monty Clift is recognized at dawn
He aint got no shoes and his clothes are torn

I see a car smashed at night
Cut the applause and dim the light
Monty's face is broken on a wheel
Is he alive? can he still feel?

Everybody say, is he all right?
And everybody say, whats he like?
Everybody say, he sure looks funny.
Thats...Montgomery Clift, honey!

Nembutol numbs it all
But I prefer alcohol

He said go out and get me my old movie stills
Go out and get me another roll of pills
There I go again shaking, but I aint got the chills
