Happy Birthday, Mr. Montgomery!

It's May 5, 1958.  The soon-to-be 54-year-old Mr. Montgomery is vacationing in Venice.  A photographer captures Bob as he's feeding birds in St. Mark's Square.  Looks like Bob needs that overcoat for more than warmth!  The bird perching on Bob's head ... too much.  Bob is obviously enjoying himself ... love the squinting eyes. 

It has been a year since the last season of Robert Montgomery Presents.  Bob has begun the lengthy process of developing his movie project, The Gallant Hours, his last association with the movie industry.  He continues to be President Eisenhower's media advisor.  In fact, he will have lunch with Ike in his suite at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City on May 20th.  Classy way to celebrate one's birthday.

And Bob and Buffy continue to travel extensively, primarily in Europe.  From skiing in Switzerland to playing baccarat in Monte Carlo to hunting in Africa, Bob enjoyed the life his successes accorded him.  Enjoy yourself, Mr. Montgomery.  You earned it.
