73 years ago today...

On March 31, 1939, a Miss Loraine Fuehner of Latonia, Kentucky, sent a letter to Bob requesting a photograph. She received this response on July 25, 1939.  A four month wait ... a very long wait for a young fan.  I'm guessing she thought it all worthwhile.

Robert Montgomery - 77 years!

Continuing the transportation about Bob on a boat train. 

"ROBERT MONTGOMERY LEAVES FOR HOME.  Robert Montgomery and his wife in the window of their carriage on the Aquitania boat train at Waterloo Station, London, July 24th, 1935."

Robert Montgomery - 83 Years Ago...

Dear me, I nearly fell off of my chair when I spotted this photo. Word on the street is it is dated July 20, 1929. Continuing the car theme:

No, it's Bob, not Bob!

My computer crashed last week.  I was scanning in a Bob picture --- one too many for the poor thing, it would appear.  I lost a lot of stuff, more than I care to think about right now.  At least I backed up most of my Bob photos.  Thank goodness ... losing them would have pushed me right off the proverbial cliff!  Anyway, I have been inspired to share a few photos with you this week that you may not have seen, before the Fates take those from me as well.

I love finding Bob photos that have been misidentified.  This was supposed to be Bob Young ... Nah ... not with the patented receding Montgomery hairline!  And those white bucks and sunglasses, definitely Bob attire.  The photo is stamped September 6, 1932.  I would have thought it earlier.  Maybe it's the car.

Live, Love and Learn (Backstage)

Oohh, Studio Picnic is coming up.

Read all about it in this month's Photoplay!

I've tried to imagine myself in Betty's place after this 1935 Photoplay article came out.  There is the new Beverly Hills mansion, the live-in servants, the mink coats, and so on to console your hurt feelings.   But, be called PLAIN when you have been a stage actress, you hobnob with the cream of society in both the U.S. and England, and you are married to Robert Montgomery, for crying out loud!  Whoa...77 years later and I can feel the pain and anger.

Skibskammerater, Ahoy!

Skibskammerater is Danish for shipmates.  Has a certain flair that is lacking in the English version.  And the herald features another one of the great photos of Bob and Dorothy Jordan.  What more could one ask...

Props to Kathy for finding what I would call a fairly obscure movie from May 1958. In both black & white and color, you'll find Bob with President Eisenhower. Topic is pretty bland, but I don't want to ruin the excitement for y'all...

Make sure you stick around for the band and the end. It's second only to seeing Bob in color.

Happy 4th!

For our readers in the US of A, hoping you have a great 4th of July. Be safe, stay cool and get out there and do some grilling!

Two points to whoever can name the movie this screen capture is from. Points are redeemable with the blog author for kudos and general recognition.

It's the hat...

Bob is one of the very few who can carry off wearing a straw boater with elan.   

Of course, on a young Bob it does cover up that gorgeous head of hair.
