(English Text)

Montgomery Clift

As director John Huston once put it, Montgomery Clift "always held something back." He wasn't one of those what-you-see-is-what-you-get types. But there were a few things about him you could be sure of. He was tough without being macho. He was one of the first guys on the scene to get all moody (here's the guy Dean learned his game from). And his bad luck offscreen left him tortured as hell. But while his sensitive, anti-Wayne act kept you guessing, his style couldn't have been more clear: classic, clean, and American. Simply put, few folks ever looked as sharp as Monty with a slicked-back pompadour, a white oxford, and a pair of worn-in khakis.—ANDREW RICHDALE

* Proof that good style isn't always about the bells and whistles: an understated—but well-fitting—oxford of any shade is just as dashing today as it was in the '50s.

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
