Montgomery Clift: A Biography
Aug 27, 2011
REM put it best: Monty got a raw deal. Driven to an unrealistic perfection of existence by his mother(with whom he had a tremendous love/hate relationship) since birth, it almost reads as if he was fated to tragedy. Magnetically talent in acting and absorbed in sucking up every aspect of life he could, he crashed to ruin over Hollywood hypocrisy, torment over his bisexuality, family drama, and drug dalliance that blew into a life crutch after a car accident that left him with pain the rest of his life. Fascinating (against the back drop of his sexuality anguish and the conservative times) is the author's, and just about everyone in Clift's circle of friends, acknowledgment and absorption of Monty's physical and emotional androgyny.
