Just Two Blokes on a Boat

Ronald Colman was born February 9, 1891, in Surrey, England.  Besides being an elegant and handsome chap, he had one great voice ... English accent and all.  He was a biggie in the Golden Age of Hollywood, a top movie star and high in the very, very British social circle in Los Angeles.  1937 was a great year for Mr. Colman, starring in The Prisoner of Zenda and Lost Horizon.  Not bad.

Meanwhile, I get a chance to use a favorite photo.  It's Mr. Montgomery, our favorite anglophile, yachting with Mr. Colman.  I'm sure Bob was in pig heaven, spending a day at sea on Ronnie's yacht.  There just aren't enough photos of Bob in swimming shorts ...

Wonderful photo! So much class in swim trunks! Gee, I wonder if my beloved Mr. Powell(Bill), was somewhere on the boat? He and Coleman were great buddies.

Hey, somebody had to have taken the photo, right?!!
