I WAS MONTY'S DOUBLE
Based on the remarkable real-life account of ME Clifton-James, I Was Monty's Double (also known as Hell, Heaven or Hoboken) is an eye-opening tale of military ingenuity, deception and good old fashioned hubris in the face of battle.
At the height of World War II actor ME Clifton-James was seconded to impersonate General Montgomery. Trained by Majory Harvey (Academy Award® winner John Mills, Ryan's Daughter) to imitate Montgomery to the last detail, his was to be a top-secret mission of unparalleled significance. With his appearance and performance down pat Clifton-James ventured forth as the stand-in Montgomery on a tour of North Africa, diverting the German's attention away from the real 'Monty' and allowing the Allies to focus on winning the war.
Recreating his real-life role with confident authenticity ME Clifton-James is joined on screen by Leslie Phillips, Cecil Parker, Bryan Forbes, Michael Hordern and John Le Mesurier in a sublime, cunning and often amusing tale of wartime trickery.
