Montgomery Clift met Elizabeth Taylor during a performance. It seems Paramount wanted him to escort Liz to the premiere of “The Heiress”. Monty wanted to stay home. He felt he needed to go over his notes after spending the night in San Quentin's death house in preparation for their film together “A Place in the Sun”. He lost the battle but won one of the best friends he would ever have. They were considered to be Hollywood's Most Beautiful Couple and, before the end of filming their first picture together, they both knew their feelings for each other would last a lifetime.
