Montgomery Clift (1920-1966) was one of the first actors to showcase Method acting on the big screen and had since influenced many young actors. He was highly revered by James Dean and was considered by the great Marlon Brando to be his touchstone, and had been nominated for the Academy Awards 4 times. As a person, he was an enigmatic, tortured soul but let's just enjoy his acting and beauty, shall we?
His list of more popular movies are :
The Search (1948)
A Place in the Sun (1951) - I this movie so much
From Here to Eternity (1953)

We're the litter on the breeze, we're the lovers on the streets
He's my all time favorite actor
I love "Suddenly, Last Summer"
Recalling his arrival in Hollywood: "I told them I wanted to choose my scripts and my directors myself. 'But sweetheart,' they said, 'you're going to make a lot of mistakes.' And I told them, 'You don't understand; I want to be free to do so.'"
"Good dialogue simply isn't enough to explain all the infinite gradations of a character. It's behavior -- it's what's going on behind the lines."
"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."
^Gorgeous pic, nel, thank you!
I love Monty....it's s wonderful seeing pics of him with Liz Taylor...you can tell that they had such a strong bond and were the closest of friends. I had a Liz Taylor book, where it said that Monty was a perfectionist and would drive everyone crazy with his attention to detail on set, and that Liz was always there to calm him and support him.
