The essential Clift character tended to be a longer, outside the mainstream, isolated - intense but always struggling against conformity, and within that framework Monty’s range was extraordinary; his characters were by turn extroverted, withdrawn, articulate, or monosyllabic, assertive, passive.He was a great believer in the psychological gesture, the physical manifestation of an emotion. It could be expressed in a look - how he stares into Shelley Winters’ face before he kills her in A Place in the Sun, the sidelong glance of astonishement and desire when he sees Elizabeth Taylor for the first time in Place, the way he phones his mother in The Misfits, as if he’s just been slugged; in his greatest performances, Monty personified, rather than impersonated, character.
