Tal día como hoy nació Marilyn Monroe. En cuanto se conocieron ella y Monty supieron reconocer el vínculo emocional y la angustia existencial que les unía.

Conocida es la frase con que ella lo definió:

"The only person I know who is in worse shap than I am".


Y también cómo él supo valorar sus dotes de actriz cuando nadie la tomaba en serio.

Marilyn Monroe was an incredible person to act with…the most marvelous I ever worked with, and I have been working for 29 years.


I have the same problem as Marilyn. We attract people the way honey does bees, but they’re generally the wrong kind of people. People who want something from us - if only our energy. We need a period of being alone to become ourselves.

Esta foto, es una de mis preferidas de Monty, es tanta la ternura que desprende y se puede notar la complicidad que hubo entre ambos.
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
