The prototype for the handsome, brooding leading man later embodied by James Dean and Marlon Brando. Montgomery Clift's sensitive and soulful screen persona redefined masculinity in the 1950s and brought method acting into vogue. Though his tragic career-marked by a disfiguring car accident, struggle with alcoholism, and untimely death at age 45-has become the stuff of Hollywood legend, Clift's stunningly modern, emotionally layered performances only resonate more with time.
