portada del LP original

Super rare Limited Edition promotional item. Intended for radio play, and to promote LONELYEARTS, this full-length two-sided disc offers interviews with all the people who took part in the making of the DORE SCHARY movie LONELYEARTS.
Based on MISS LONELYHEARTS by Nathaniel West. Arnold Michaels is the interviewer, and he talks to Robert Ryan, Myrna Loy, Dolores Hart, Maureen Stapleton and others...and...hold your breath and flip to side two...he does talk to the reclusive, dangerous, dynamic and always controversial MONTGOMERY CLIFT. The interviewer wonders why the advance publicity has been so strange, and why Monty has such a terrible reputation...and he GETS THE ANSWERS, in a dramatic, truculent, difficult, disturbing and fascinating way, as Clift's artistry and sensitivity as well as his hostility and his indignance all meld together with each answer.
Album as you see it...a clearly distraught female lies in bed...either waiting for Miss Lonelyhearts or having just had a session. The back cover is blank. The vinyl is VG+ with no visible scratches, and it played through very nicely for us. Maybe some very mild surface noise which could've been the primitive live-on-the-set recording equipment that was used. Very good sound, really. And the interview with Clift is a MUST for Monty fans.

Hi. What a nice blog about Mr. Montgomery Clift. An interesting Lp this is with Monty i think. Never heard about it. Is it a long interview with him? Where did you get it may i ask.

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
