Montgomery Clift Birthday, Date of Birth

Montgomery Clift

Edward Montgomery "Monty" Clift (; October 17, 1920 – July 23, 1966) was an American actor. A four time Academy Award nominee, The New York Times said he was known for his portrayal of "moody, sensitive young men".

He is best remembered for his roles in Red River (1948), The Heiress (1949), A Place in the Sun (1951), Alfred Hitchcock's I Confess (1953), From Here to Eternity (1953), The Young Lions (1958), Judgment at Nuremberg (1961), and The Misfits (1961).

Along with Marlon Brando and James Dean, Clift was one of the original method actors in Hollywood; he was one of the first actors to be invited to study in the Actors Studio with Lee Strasberg and Elia Kazan. He also executed a rare move by not signing a contract after arriving in Hollywood, only doing so after his first two films were a success. This was described as "a power differential that would go on to structure the star-studio relationship for the next 40 years".
