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 a tragic figure—a self-loathing, closeted alcoholic whose repressed sexuality lead him to “the slowest suicide in Hollywood history.” Now, Clift’s youngest nephew, Robert A. Clift, and Hillary Demmon (both Indiana University alumni) 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.
