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, nephew Robert Clift and Hillary Demmon rigorously examine the flawed narratives that have come to define Monty’s legacy. Drawing on interviews with family, loved ones and a rich collection of unreleased archival materials, this fresh portrait of the actor’s passions, contributions and commitment to living and working in his own way gives one of Hollywood’s under-appreciated legends his due.
