Five Years of Marriage and Still Smiling

                                 Bob & Buffy, March 23, 1955

The photo above was taken while the Montgomerys were on vacation in Naples, Florida.  Bob had just finished directing The Desperate Hours on Broadway, while still involved in Robert Montgomery Presents and spending considerable time as media advisor for Eisenhower.  A well-earned vacation no doubt. 

White slacks and shoes seemed to be Bob's favorite casual outfit.  I've always considered that to be a sign of wealth, as in how else could one relax while wearing white.  You can bet It wasn't Buffy who took care of any grass stains.  

They were apparently a happy couple.  Both with big smiles.  Heaven forbid that the very formal Mr. Montgomery would ever put his arm around Mrs. Montgomery in public, but that was not necessary to show their feelings toward each other.

Haute couture in the 1950s was .... interesting.
