Monty Clift

Adrien English, the gay bookseller hero of Josh Lanyon's wonderful series of crime fiction books, is said by other characters to look very much like MC.
There were only the two of them on the mountain flying in the euphoric, bitter air, looking down on the hawk's back and the crawling lights of vehicles on the plain below, suspended above ordinary affairs....

Thanks FoS for the info. It really is a beautiful piece of art.

You bet Ennis felt he was in a slowmotion, but headlong, irreversible fall.

Love Remington, sculpture and paintings. And Charles Russell too.

There are actually quite a few casts of it. One is in the White House, another is in the National Museum of American Art in DC. It's not large, not quite window sill size but could easily fit on a coffee table.

I think that my favorite Remington sculpture is Coming Through the Rye.



When they did a take on this during a scene in Silverado, I was really thrilled!
