The Montgomery Clift Bio

montgomery-clift-poster   posters-montgomery

clift-posters Odd as it may seem, it is undeniably fitting that this star carried a picture of Franz Kafka with him wherever he went. Montgomery Clift was completely Kafkaesque-confused about his sexuality, an alcoholic, and rather reluctant to accept or embrace fame. Only through strong friendships like that of Elizabeth Taylor and his work that he was able to find the strength to continue living; especially after a devastating car wreck which left him disfigured in 1957.

He was Hollywood's first "dark-side-of-the-moon actor". Thus, he paved the way for future stars from Marlon Brando to Jennifer Jason Leigh. His angst and passion is what electrified his films; "Red River" (1948), "A Place In The Sun" (1951), "From Here To Eternity" (1953), "Suddenly, Last Summer" (1959), and last but definitely not least, 1960's "Wild River" are films that unveil the essential Clift in a fit of raving passion and integrity.

Montgomery Clift Quotes...

“The closer we come to the negative, to death, the more we blossom.”

“Failure and its accompanying misery is for the artist his most vital source of creative energy.”

“A man should be what he can do.”

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

[on Elizabeth Taylor] “Liz is the only woman I have ever met who turns me on. She feels like the other half of me.”

“I don't want to be labeled as either a pansy or a heterosexual. Labeling is so self-limiting. We are what we do, not what we say we are.”

“If a man don't go his own way, he is nothing.”
–Montgomery Clift as Robert E. Lee Prewitt in From Here to Eternity.

[on Noah, the part he played in The Young Lions] “Noah was the best performance of my life. I couldn't have given more of myself. I'll never be able to do it again. Never.”
