montgomery clift, born: omaha, nebraska (1922-1966), elizabeth taylor, born: london, england (1932)

there is something to be said for the old hollywood star system. it is rare to find two finer specimens of the human race, despite both of their idiosyncratic foibles. taylor’s respect and love for the troubled clift are the stuff legends are made of. he did relatively young, ravaged by poor self esteem, the bottle, and a little problem hollywood had about him: his homosexuality. she is still alive, much longer than we ever expected a woman with as many lives as her to live. watch them in “a place in the sun” from which this studio shot comes. listen to the clash sing their homage to him on the album london calling, titled “the right profile”.
