Montgomery Clift: Authentic autograph on larger display photo, signed in 1966, the year of his death.

The Autograph comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

10 x 8 inches, very good condition.

Edward Montgomery (Monty) Clift (1920 –1966) was an American film and stage actor. The New York Times’ obituary noted his portrayal of “moody, sensitive young men”.

Clift starred in the ground-breaking 1950 docu-drama The Big Lift.

He often played outsiders and “victim-heroes”; examples include the social climber in George Stevens’s A Place in the Sun, the anguished Catholic priest in Hitchcock’s I Confess, the doomed regular soldier Robert E. Lee Prewitt in Fred Zinnemann’s From Here to Eternity, and the Jewish GI bullied by antisemites in Edward Dmytryk’s The Young Lions.

Later, after a car crash in 1956 that scarred Clift’s face, and alcohol and prescription drug abuse, he became erratic.

Riefenstahl started to develop the script for Tiefland in 1934, with the movie being shot between 1940 and 1944. However, it was not completed by the end of World War II and was eventually finalized and released on February 11, 1954.

It was listed as the feature film with the longest production time in history by the Guinness Book of World Records. Despite this record being surpassed by The Thief and the Cobbler (with 30 years of production from 1964 to 1995), Tiefland still stands as the live action film with the longest production time.
