Speaking of Fan Letters...



Robert Montgomery, juvenile player who has forged ahead and developed a tremendous fan following, with his work in "The Divorcee" and "The Big House," is said to receive toe largest volume of mail at the M-G-M studio. Some of it comes wrapped up on stocks, such as the letter Montgomery is now trying to decipher from Persia.

Persia? That's quite amusing - I'm thinking it's an MGM publicity gimmick, though, lol

And of course, you and I are the ones that sent the bulk of that fanmail, right? ;P

I wonder if anyone out there ever received a response? Now that would be a find!

Geez now Karl Malden. I was just thinking of him last night while I was watching a movie. Been a rough week in Hollywood.

Not really on the same note, but according to findagrave, Robert "Skip" is buried in Memory Gardens in Tallahassee.

Guess what? He isn't. He was cremated and there isn't any burial info. I was down there today so I thought I would stop by an snap a pic.

The plot thickens?

I'm sure there's a few of us that may have required restraining orders after a while!

LoL-- you said it, Carrie! (I can just hear my fumbling excuses..."I told you officer, I was lost! How was I supposed to know it was Mr. Montgomery's dressing room?")
