The Earl of Chicago is one of my favorite Robert Montgomery movies. To this day, I think the ending was way unfair...

Here's the caption on the back of the photo:
HE LOOKS LIKE THE TWELFTH EARL OF GORLEY...But underneath he's still Silky Kilmount, Chicago gangster, just a guttersnipe lord. It's the most unusual starring role of Robert Montgomery's career in Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's "The Earl of Chicago," the different screen story of a thug who becomes a nobleman. Victor Saville brings the film to the screen, directed by Richard Thorpe.
