CAR ACCIDENT
On May 12, 1956, while filming Raintree County, he smashed his car into a telephone pole after leaving a party at the home of his Raintree County co-star Elizabeth Taylor and her then-husband Michael Wilding. Taylor raced to Clift's side. He suffered a broken jaw and nose, a fractured sinus, and several facial lacerations. After a long recovery, he returned to the set to finish the film.
DEATH
On Monday, July 22, 1966, Clift spent most of the day in his bedroom in this New York City townhouse. He and his live-in personal secretary, Lorenzo James had not spoken much all day. At 1 a.m., Lorenzo went up to say goodnight. The Misfits was airing on TV that night, and Lorenzo asked Clift if he wanted to watch it. "Absolutely NOT!" was the reply. This turned out to be the last time Montgomery Clift spoke to anyone. At 6 a.m. the next morning, Lorenzo went to wake him, but found the bedroom door locked. Unable to break it down, he ran down to the garden and climbed a ladder to the bedroom window. When he got inside, he found Clift dead.
