Now That's One Darling Smile!

Ah, the lucky young British fan who was able to purchase this fan magazine, knowing they would soon have a photo of the new heartthrob from the States.  Would it be pinned on the bedroom wall, or perhaps placed in a frame for display on her bedside table so she could fall asleep gazing into those eyes, lost in his smile.

At the time this photo was taken, Bob was 26 years old.  In just over a year since his first MGM movie was released, Bob has been paired with three of the top actresses of the time (Crawford, Shearer and Garbo).  From hustling for a role of any kind, to finding himself in the upper echelon of the Hollywood star system ... a very, very meteoric rise to fame.  Yeah, I'd be smiling, too.
