You know I love Monty. He's been my #3 guy for a long time; however, just recently, I pushed him down to 4, because with all the Robert Ryan I've been watching, Ryan had to move up from #6. So, Monty's now my #4 guy...which is still very high on my list. My favorite of his films is A Place in the Sun, which is about my #3 movie of all time.

I will be watching Lonelyhearts in celebration of Monty's birthday. It's one of his post-accident works, so it makes me sad to watch it since his face was so altered by his accident. But he's still a very good actor, and since #3 guy Robert Ryan stars in this one with him, that makes it even better.

Have a great evening,

Today is my half-birthday! haha I like it more than my actual birthday because something strange or bad usually occurs on my birthday.

Monty è stato un attore divino. Uno dei migliori che abbia mai calcato le scene. Recitava con una poesia e una intensità mai viste.
