A list of my favorite images of American actor Montgomery Clift.
Edward Montgomery Clift (October 17th 1920 – July 23rd 1966) was an American film and stage actor.
He is best remembered for roles in Red River (1948), The Heiress (1949), George Stevens's A Place in the Sun (1951), as a Catholic priest in Alfred Hitchcock's I Confess (1952), a soldier in Fred Zinnemann's From Here to Eternity (1953), Edward Dmytryk's The Young Lions (1958) and as a mentally challenged, sterilized concentration camp survivor in Stanley Kramer's Judgment at Nuremberg (1961).
He received four Academy Award nominations during his career: three for Best Actor and one for Best Supporting Actor.
Along with Marlon Brando and James Dean, Clift was one of the original method actors in Hollywood; he was one of the first actors to be invited to study in the Actors Studio with Lee Strasberg, Michael Chekhov and Stella Adler.
He also executed a rare move by not signing a contract after arriving in Hollywood, only doing so after his first two films were a success - a power differential that would go on to structure the star-studio relationship for the next 40 years.
Clift died of a heart attack in 1966 aged 45.
