Description

This article is from the R.E.M. FAQ, by Ron Henry (rgh3@cornell.edu) with numerous contributions by others.

47 "Who is 'Monty' in 'Monty Got a Raw Deal' on AfTP?" (R.E.M.)

Montgomery Clift, actor. He was considered to be one of the most handsome
movie stars ever in Hollywood at his prime, though he lost much of those
looks in a car accident. His films included "Raintree County," "A Place in
the Sun," and "The Misfits." He died fairly young due to depression and
alcohol abuse. A biography of Clift, written by Robert Laguardia, was
published in 1977.

Answers to questions about other real people mentioned in R.E.M. lyrics can
be found in the document, "Real People Mentioned in REM Songs, v.1.2"
researched by Gary Nabors and periodically posted to the group (email
rgh3@cornell.edu for a copy if you missed it).
