Montgomery Clift at the Savoy Hotel, c. 1950.


Look, I’m not odd. I’m just trying to be an actor; not a movie star, an actor.

Happy Birthday Edward Montgomery Clift! October 17, 1920.

Montgomery Clift in Hitchcock’s I Confess, 1953.

In the early 60’s I was working in a revival theater in New York and we were showing I Confess. And who should arrive one afternoon, but Monty Clift. This is, of course, was 10 years after his accident, so his face was not quite the same, and it was only a couple years before he died… And at one point during the movie he came and stood in the back, and in those days you could smoke in a theater, and he’s standing in the back smoking, and I went over to him and asked him how it felt to see himself in this movie. And all he said was, “It’s hard… it’s very hard.” - Peter Bogdanovich

Everybody I knew was in love with Montgomery Clift. Monty represented a new kind of man in the bleak 1950s, a guy who was poetic and vulnerable and disturbed and not afraid to show it. - Rosemary Santini

Happy Birthday, Montgomery Clift | (October 17, 1920 — July 23, 1966) 

"The true originator of the rebellious twentieth century anti-hero was Montgomery Clift … not Marlon Brando or James Dean … the restrained performer with the inner tension and those ancient, melancholy eyes … his presence so unobtrusively strong that it lingered even when he was off-camera."Marcello Mastroianni

"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.”
