Too Close for Comfort
I don't know about you, folks, but Montgomery Clift's performance in "The Misfits", that was almost too painful (as in heartbreaking) to watch. I mean, just those drunken rodeo scenes (his head bandaged as the result of two drunken falls) alone were enough to make me shiver. And THEN, I'm saying, the fact that you're almost forced into seeing how this movie paralleled his own tragic life (alcohol, sexual confusion, physical harm, etc.), you kind of have to get the picture, right? Montgomery Clift, ladies and gentlemen, there will never, EVER, be anybody quite like him.
