Bob Names the Best

I've seen the debate online a few times regarding which film Bob felt was his best or favorite. Well, in this Jan 7, 1955 New York Journal article, he names a few. Mr. Montgomery also notes his thoughts on best actor and actress.

See if you can spot the fact typo in this article. Clue: a Helen Hayes movie.

Thanks to Tracy for digging this up (a while ago, but not forgotten).

I wish I could read this article, it doesn't zoom in well. What I can read doesn't surprise me. Helen Hayes was a stage actress (a very fine one), Night Must Fall, well..... he fought tooth and nail to do it, and It's my favorite too. He was incredible in it. And, last but not least....Mr. Cagney. There was a mutual admiration thing there for sure. Montgomery thought Cagney was America's finest actor, and Cagney thought Montgomgery was this country's finest American. Very close friends.

Debbie - did you download the large JPG from the link? Should be fairly large from there. The browser may be making it smaller to fit your window.

Montgomery saying Cagney was the best is a bit loaded since they were friends, but it's still legit!
