“Montgomery Clift (1920-1965) died at 45, the recipient of more publicity and praise than most actors get in a full lifetime. He attracted attention because he was a fine actor, very handsome, and because he refused to conform. He didn’t choose to be tied by long-term contracts, go to premieres, indulge in fake romances, or marry. For flouting these and other Hollywood rules he defended himself: ‘I am neither a young rebel nor an old rebel, nor a tired rebel but quite simply an actor who tries to do his job with the maximum of conviction and sincerity.’”
— David Shipman

“The true originator of the rebellious twentieth-century antihero was not Brando or Dean, but Montgomery Clift...  His strong presence lingered even off-camera.”
– Marcello Mastroianni

“I thought he was the most gorgeous thing in the world and easily one of the best actors.”
– Elizabeth Taylor

Presented with generous support from the Robert Jolin Osborne Endowed Fund for American Classic Cinema of the 1930s, ’40s, and ‘50s. Rifkind Foundation Endowment for Queer Cinema, and the Ada Katz Fund for Literature in Film.
