Montgomery Clift at 95

montgomery clift 95

Montgomery Clift would have been 95 today. I had no idea he was so close in age to my father – whose centennial is next year. Monty died in 1966 at the age of 46. According to many sources, he led a tortured life, especially after his car accident. One would hope had he been born later, he may have thrived and lived a happier life. My favorite Clift films are:

The Heiress
A Place in the Sun
I Confess 
Suddenly Last Summer

He is probably most beautiful in The Heiress and A Place in the Sun. I Confess isn’t a first-tier Hitchcock, but Montgomery in a cassock always gets me going. And Suddenly Last Summer delivers tragic camp on steroids. I just realized I haven’t posted a Reel Charlie review on any of my favorite Montgomery Clift films. I have some work ahead of me.

Which is your favorite Montgomery Clift film?
