Montgomery Clift

I told him I felt cut off from a lot of experience being a writer, working by myself so much, and he said actors were cut off too. “Except you writers don’t need to hear the sound of applause,” he said. I said, “What the hell are you talking?” and he stares at me with those funny blazing eyes of his and then starts laughing with that crazy-sounding laugh.

Monty had a special kind of pain, a pain he could not release. He had a tragedy hanging over his head like a big black comic-strip cloud. It was so distinct you could almost see it. I never heard him talk about himself personally.

-James Jones (In the middle)
