Bob the Thinker

When the mind is sluggish and without any particular idea for a post, it is always a good idea to resort to a portrait of Bob.  In this case the reader gets to see another photo of the beautiful, young Mr. Montgomery and I get to chat on about a favorite photo. 

This is a Hurrell portrait, one of many taken in 1932, my best guess being February, 1932.  The info on the back refers to Bob's current movie, The Truth Game, the working title of But the Flesh is Weak (1932) which was filmed in February of that year.  Photos from the same session were also used to promote Faithless (1932), filmed in August/September. 

Love the way the fingers of his left hand are so delineated, they draw your eyes directly to Bob's face, and such a handsome face it is.  And he's almost smiling.  What's not to like.
