Home From The Pacific Front

Home From The Pacific Front . . . Lieutenant-Commander Robert Montgomery after more than a year in the battle zones in which he took part in a number of major engagements, the former Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer screen star has been temporarily stationed at a pacific port. This picture was taken at his home in Beverly Hills.



Believe it or not, the one part of the photo that interests me most is hidden on the right-hand side of the mantle:


After some digging around, I think he's standing next to the Navy/Marine version of the B-25 Mitchell bomber, the PBJ-1. Boy, aren't I being nerdy. I just think it's interesting that a photo like that would have a place on a mantle. If you've seen a larger version of the photo, please drop me a line.

Great man, wonderful photo! Is it perhaps Bob in the photo on the mantel?

Well, you've certainly got eagle eyes!

I'm still wondering about that little door next to him, lol - where does it lead to? John Malkovich?

I'm pretty sure that's him in the photo - the other details - still sketchy!

The little door...lol
