SERIES DESCRIPTION

The prototype for the handsome, brooding leading man later embodied by James Dean and Marlon Brando, Montgomery Clift’s sensitive and soulful screen persona redefined masculinity in the 1950s and brought method acting into vogue. Though his tragic career—marked by a disfiguring car accident, struggle with alcoholism, and untimely death at age 45—has become the stuff of Hollywood legend, Clift’s stunningly modern, emotionally layered performances only resonate more with time.

Flavorpill on That's Montgomery Clift, Honey!

"The face that launched a thousand Method thesps, Montgomery Clift is best remembered as the determined American dreamer who reaches up the social ladder, ever hopeful, for Liz Taylor in A Place in the Sun. With an uncanny mixture of silk and sulk, Clift left a handful of indelible performances before his untimely death in 1966." More

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
