Esta foto, de un Monty jovencísimo (corresponde a la colección de fotos que le realizó Alfred Valente en su estudio a principios de los años 40), era dada por el propio Monty a sus fans y amigos. Por el tipo de firma y sobre todo por la historia que acabo de contar, esta foto es auténtica.
Estos son los datos que acompañan a la foto:
Original Montgomery Clift autographed photo purchased seveal years ago from the state of Claire Kroger, longtime companion of Greta Garbo. Ms. Kroger lived with Ms. garbo for many tears and was with Greta when Greta died in 1990. Ms. Koger was left out of Greta's will and died penniless. Shortly afeter her death belongins were sold at an state sale where among several items were two photographs, this one of Montgomery Clift and the other of Lana Turner, wich I also have up for auction. This photograph of Montgomery Clift, who was a close and personal friend of Ms. Garbo. They're friendship spanned many years where Greta and Monty developed a strong relationship. Ms. Garbo met the young Montgomery during his New York theater years and convinced the reluctant actor to expand his repertoire onto the movie screen, where he found success.
