Ah, gorgeous, tragic, "bisexual" actors of the 1950s. That's a Jeopardy! category I could stand to see more often. Today would've been pioneering "method" actor (like Brando and James Dean) and eternal glamor boy Montgomery Clift's 92nd birthday, and if you think the car accident that disfigured his face in 1956 or his ensuing 10-year spiral of substance abuse completely taints his status as a legendary hottie, I pity you. Clift gave us so much brooding attractiveness that it's possible the entire Twilight series manifested from his ashes. In celebration of the mysterious man and Liz Taylor Bff on his birthday, let's count down his nine hottest moments.

9. Let's just combine all these stoic portraits into one hot item.
