“Elizabeth invited me to a dinner party at her house on Beverly Estates Drive, which is a winding road above Beverly Hills. The house had been designed by architect George MacLean and had an indoor swimming pool. After dinner, Elizabeth and Montgomery Clift went for a swim. They laughed and giggled while making out in the water in front of us all. They were having a great time. Even though Monty had boyfriends as well as girlfriends, it was obvious that he and Elizabeth had been intimate. Elizabeth could seduce any man, gay or straight. She and Monty were great pals and very dear friends.” -Debbie Reynolds

“I miss Montgomery Clift. I miss talking to him, exchanging thoughts and ideas. I miss laughing together and doing silly things together. He was the best friend I’ve ever had. And I think he would say the same about me. He was so brilliantly talented and such a tragic figure. Oh, I loved him- and I still do. -Elizabeth Taylor
