He was beautiful A Tribute to Montgomery Clift

La canción He was beautiful parece escrita para presentar la belleza de Montgomery Clift.



La autora del video es SimplySullavan y esta es la descripción del mismo:

One of the most talented actors of his generation, Montgomery Clift was also one of the most troubled. Dependent on alcohol and drugs, he also had to hide the fact that he was gay from the movie going public. After a horrible car accident he had numerous operations to restore his face, and he became even more addicted to alcohol and tablets. Despite- or perhaps because of- his troubled persona, Clift won the admiration of almost all his female costars. From Elisabeth Taylor to Jennifer Jones they fell in Love with him, Katharine Hepburn is said to have spit in the face of director Joseph L. Manciewicz because she thought he ill- treated Monty and Marilyn Monroe, his costar in THE MISFITS, was his troubled soul sister. Their scenes together are poignant and somehow painful to watch. Apart from stills shot during the making of that film, the photographs in this tribute come from the years preceding the accident, from a time when Montgomery Clift was not only a wonderful actor, but also more beautiful than any man should be allowed to.
Su carrera comprende 17 títulos entre 1948 y 1966. Trabajó con los grandes directores (Hawks, Hitchcock, Stevens, Zinnemann, Kazan, Huston, Wyler) y las grandes estrellas (Lancaster, Marilyn Monroe, Katherine Hepburn, Brando, Wayne, Elizabeth Taylor especialmente) de entonces.

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
