Biografía de Patricia Bosworth.- críticas y opiniones

En mi opinión, la mejor biografía de Montgomery Clift, con diferencia, es la de Patricia Bosworth. Aunque sea posterior a la de Robert LaGuardia (en realidad sólo hay un año de diferencia en la publicación, Bosworth se levó un lustro preparándola); la de éste más sensacionalista y centrada en la homosexualidad (pienso que por pura sintonía del autor con el personaje).

Éstas son algunas de las reseñas elogiosas que suscitó la biografía:

(English text)

" (...) Because of Bosworth's artistry, her ability to choose the right details, and her own immersion in the subject... (this book) is an amazing excursion into a life".- New York Times Book Review.

"It stands as the definitive work on the gifted, haunted actor".- Los Angeles Times.

"Here it is -the real thing- inside Montgomety Clift. I've know other actors as well, but none with such a barowing tale, could Patricia Bosworth have been there? Everywhere? The book is that vivid and intimate".- Elia Kazan.
Su carrera comprende 17 títulos entre 1948 y 1966. Trabajó con los grandes directores (Hawks, Hitchcock, Stevens, Zinnemann, Kazan, Huston, Wyler) y las grandes estrellas (Lancaster, Marilyn Monroe, Katherine Hepburn, Brando, Wayne, Elizabeth Taylor especialmente) de entonces.

The Right Profile
Lyric
Say, where did I see this guy?
In red river?
Or a place in the sun?
Maybe the misfits?
Or from here to eternity?

Everybody say, is he all right?
And everybody say, whats he like?
Everybody say, he sure looks funny.
Thats...Montgomery Clift, honey!

New York, New York, New York, 42nd street
Hustlers rustle and pimps pimp the beat
Monty Clift is recognized at dawn
He aint got no shoes and his clothes are torn

I see a car smashed at night
Cut the applause and dim the light
Monty's face is broken on a wheel
Is he alive? can he still feel?

Everybody say, is he all right?
And everybody say, whats he like?
Everybody say, he sure looks funny.
Thats...Montgomery Clift, honey!

Nembutol numbs it all
But I prefer alcohol

He said go out and get me my old movie stills
Go out and get me another roll of pills
There I go again shaking, but I aint got the chills
