Remembering the late, great Montgomery Clift who left us on this date in 1966 at the young age of 45. A brilliant actor, Monty started his career on the New York stage before being snapped up by Hollywood. After a near fatal accident while filming Raintree County with Elizabeth Taylor, Monty descended into drug & alcohol addiction. His gift never left him though. He was still giving incredible performances until the end. Marilyn said of him that he was the only person she knew who was in worse shape than she was.
