Movie Info

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 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.

  • I yearned for more facts about Clift's involvement in such classics as Red River, I Confess, and Wild River, though the passages about how he sculpted his performances in The Search and Judgment at Nuremberg speak to his impeccable craft.

  • Making Montgomery Clift is a fascinating study of the ethics of biography...

  • The Clift remembered here is not the doomed victim of so many mythologizing books and TV programs but a highly intelligent, mordantly funny man who successfully fought to keep his creative and sexual integrity intact.

  • A welcome corrective to simplistic and salacious Hollywood lore.

  • The genius of Making Montgomery Clift is that it makes us feel like we know plenty about Montgomery Clift's life even if we knew little about him at all.

  • Making Montgomery Cliftis a highly personal endeavor that should be of interest to any film buff. It leaves some questions unanswered but paints an admiring portrait of a singular talent. It's available on VOD right now and well worth seeing
