Speaking of being stereotyped ... hard to imagine Walter Pidgeon as being anything but the stalwart husband, the country minister, and, for god sakes, married to Greer Garson! Walter, the Swinger, dancing with Claudette Colbert at home in the late 1940s ... well, it just doesn't jive. (Wonder if they knew anything more current than the Charleston.)
Charming, handsome, tormented ... and oh, so very fascinating.
NIGHT MUST FALL was one of the few times in his movie career that Robert Montgomery had both a good script and the challenge of capturing a truly interesting character. It was a real struggle to get the studio to make the movie, reportedly to the point of agreeing to put his own money into the production. Three cheers for Mr. Montgomery for giving us Crazy Danny to love and cherish.**
** And a special thanks to Debbie for sharing with us the latest addition to her NMF collection. Just a gorgeous photo!
Yup, I'm selling. I have this gorgeous Robert Montgomery photo that I have no place to hang in the house. It is the same photo that was on the cover of the TCM "Now Playing" magazine a few years back for Bob month. So I want to give it a new home. Here are the details:
16 x 20 gelatin silver print by Mark Vieira. Same process George Hurrell used.
Purchased from HurrellPhotos.com.
Black metal frame, double matting. All acid free. UV filtering glass.
Framed size is 23 x 27.
$250 OBO + shipping & insurance (item will be professionally packed and shipped since we're dealing with glass).
More than happy to provide more photos or details. If you're interested, or slightly interested, feel free to leave a comment & we'll talk! It'll probably make its way over to Ebay if I can't sell here.
