Summary A biography that chronicles the decades-long loving relationship between Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Clift. Taylor was cast opposite Clift for the first time in A Place in the Sun, when Monty was already a movie idol and Elizabeth was known for her beauty rather than her talent. Clift encouraged her to develop her talent by helping her along and taking her seriously. Monty, a sensitive and troubled man whose homosexuality was a closely-guarded secret, was rescued from his wrecked car by Taylor after a party at her house. Their devotion to one another lasted until Clift's untimely death in 1966.
