Fun article. I can well imagine Bob the adventurous type. Interesting spin Bob put on the role opposite Blanky. Robert Parrish, I think, wrote that Goldwyn thought Bob looked too skinny and photographed "young enough to have been Blanky's son," even though she was just a year older. Goldwyn thought about having him grow a moustache to make him look older but decided to make the film a silent and let Montgomery go. Lucky break for MGM.
Ha! Good story. Dear lord, facial hair!?
if Goldwyn had thought along the lines of a 5 o'clock shadow he would've had a hit and a new star on the lot.
