YES, and Thank You :) Montgomery Clift was all set for the role of Joe, 2 wks before production began he backed out. The story is at the time he was having an affair? with Libby Holman who was a torch singer and known mostly for her stage work. She was 16 years older than Monty. He didn't want others to know about their relationship, so he bowed out afraid that since his real life situation at that time mirrored the role of Joe in *Sunset Blvd* and if the press started digging around they'd make a thing of that info.


Excellent Emgee your thread.
