Good Monty, World

You're probably going to see a lot of Montgomery Clift around these parts over the next couple of weeks since it's the centennial of his birth on October 17th -- hence this week's banner and hence this morning's beachside shot for a wake-us-up. I don't know if you've already been following along but The Film Experience is going to be taking stock of all seventeen films in Monty's filmography every day up until then, click on over to see what's the haps so far -- all good stuff. Indeed I'll have more on that later. For now enjoy that photo up top, which is off of the excellent Monty doc Making Montgomery Clift, which I recommend. (I reviewed it right here.) I know I sure am. Enjoying the photo, I mean. (Indeed I'd click on it to make it bigger.) (That's what he said.)

I’ll definitely need to watch this documentary now. Thanks for the heads up! I love Monty. He was such a standout and ahead of his time. All those around him (for the most part) doing their “old timey” acting, and then he’d come on being completely fresh, modern, realistic, and sincere. Underrated king.
