Description

Montgomery Clift was one of the most influential actors in the history of cinema, bucking traditions on and off screen, but countless biographies have reduced him to labels like “tragically self-destructive” and “tormented.” Now, his nephew Robert Clift and Hillary Demmon rigorously examine the flawed narratives that have come to define Monty’s legacy. Drawing on interviews with family and loved ones and a rich collection of unreleased archival materials from Monty and his brother, Brooks Clift, this fresh portrait of the actor’s passions, contributions and commitment to living and working in his own way gives one of Hollywood’s underappreciated legends his due.

  • Poignant and definitive

    Wonderful perspective from Monty’s youngest nephew. An honest, unfiltered presentation of one of the most important actors who ever lived. Rare footage and archives show a side of Montgomery Clift that has never been seen before. Narrative and analysis by those who knew him best dispel the gossip that hounded Clift during his life in the spotlight and after his untimely death. A must for any Clift fan or movie buff.
  • Very long and drawn out

    I understand that the family of Montgomery Clift want to paint a different picture of him, but it seems like they are trying to really trying to rewrite history. I believe back in the day , a persons personal life was something to keep secret and often used against them. What I took away from the documentary was, Clifts mother loved him and she was a good mother. His father and brother have spent their life living in his shadow. He was attracted to males and not bi-exual. It was an ok documentary , it was very drawn out and a bit boring.
