Raintree County.- vestuario de Montgomery Clift

Subastan en Internet este chaleco que llevó Monty para su papel de John Wickliff en la película Raintree County (El árbol de la vida, 1957). Es un chaleco de lino color hueso bastante gastado y que presenta incluso manchas (no ha sido nunca lavada la prenda, parece ser). Se compró en la subasta que hizo la MGM en 1970 y hasta ahora no se había vuelto a vender. En la etiqueta se ve que perteneció a la productora y apuntado con tinta el nombre del actor. En la biografía de Patricia Bosworth se dice que su hermano Brooks coleccionó todo su vestuario. Quizá esta prenda la vendió directamente la Metro o realmente la pone ahora a la venta, como con tantos objetos que circula en la red, uno de sus descendienes.



Esta es la información que acompaña a la venta:


(English text)

Bone colored linen/flax vest purchased at the MGM auction of 1970 and never worn since. Label shows it was made for and worn by Montgomery Clift. A true film historian/Clift buff could identify the film the costume came from. It is in very worn condition with the following notes: The facing of one button is missing; there is a stain under one chest pocket; there are sweat stains throughout (on the back and under the arm pits most notably) presumably from the original wearer as the hand tailoring on the inside back denotes the specificity of the cut and the sizing for Mr. Clift. The garment has never been cleaned or laundered while in my possession which has been forty years (since the auction itself). This is obviously a one-of-a-kind item for serious cinephiles and or Clift fans and is priced accordingly.

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
