MONTGOMERY CLIFT

Movie Star Montgomery Clift

Montgomery Clift was a four times academy nominee, known for his portrayal of moody sensitive young men, perhaps best remembered for his performance as Private Powell in Fred Zinneman’s ‘From Here to Eternity.’ In which he co-starred with Frank Sinatra. Yet despite his huge talent, he suffered deep insecurities and was only saved from death, following a horrendous car crash by the intervention of his close friend Elizabeth Taylor. Clift is considered a giant of post war cinema whose story is both remarkable and engrossing. Come and meet the ‘real’ Montgomery Clift in Nigel Coleman’s fascinating one man play!
