Harry, Montgomery Clift was also the descendant of Col. William Clift, a famous (or notorious, depending on which way you shot) Southeast Tennessee Unionist who had sons serving on both sides. A. P. Stewart, who, as an old man lived in Chattanooga in accordance with his duties relative to Chickamauga Chattanooga NMP, lived with one of Clift’s sons after his wife died.
Pretty cool! I’ve always felt a little sorry for Clift, such a tragic figure, physically broken and internally conflicted. But all this time I thought his only claim to fame other than the movies was on The Clash album London Calling. The song is The Right Profile.
