Brilliant record of a unique star 2 Mar. 2000
By "splitends" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Montgomery Clift was called, by Spencer Tracy, "the finest actor" of his generation. This is a truthful, candid, but respectful record of his life and times, from the constraints of his overprotected childhood, through his early theatrical and movie fame to his untimely death of heart failure at 45. It is illustrated with both movie stills and rare, previously unpublished candids, which show Monty's strengths and weaknesses as an actor and as a man. Barney Hoskyns has written an engaging, often amusing text. He does not try to provide any glib answers to Monty's decline and fall, but does share some wry insights. The book is beautifully presented. While it is obviously for the fans, it is no vacuous, "pop-star" style work, but a solid tribute to a great star.

Excellent text and outstanding photos 7 Feb. 2014
By P. Mosca - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
After reading reviews by other buyers, was determined to purchase this book.
Always an avid fan from first movies. The book provides abundance of information
on his background, family life, education... so much that is overlooked but explains his
tortured life in spite of excellence in acting. Truly a book to treasure.

A Beautiful Legend 30 May 2013
By Anna Marie J. Prudente - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Finally a book which displays his youth and even his days on Broadway! I would highly recommend this book to any Monty fan! Isn't it time that some director do a movie on Monty? I would highly consider two great actors who usually are great at doing biographies, Leonardo DiCaprio or Joaquin Phoenix!

RARE BOOK PROVED A GREAT FIND! 20 Jan. 2014
By FRANK FOSTER - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I HAVE MANY OTHER BOOKS ON MONTGOMERY CLIFT. I WAS QUITE PLEASED TO SEE THIS ONE AVAILABLE AGAIN. PHOTOS ARE QUITE GOOD AND ACCURATE. I FEEL THAT MUCH RESEARCH WENT INTO WRITING AND COLLECTIING PHOTOS FOR THIS PUBLICATION. MR HOSKYNS DID A VERY GOOD JOB. FF
Misunderstood great actor, perhaps 31 July 2015
By D. J. Singer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Misunderstood great actor, perhaps, hardly remembered these days....he was handsome and gifted, but had personal demons he contended with, making his life more than difficult. Good read for people who want to know more, and those who remember him with interest.
