Looking Forward to April 16th (And Not Just Because it is the Day After Taxes!)

War Nurse (1930) is certainly not one of Bob's better movies.  However, it is a great movie for Bob watching, just enjoying the ever so young, slender and handsome Mr. Montgomery.  The main drawback is that Bob isn't on the screen enough.  I know, the movie is titled War Nurse, so why would one expect him to be in every scene, but...  At least the movie did produce some of the best stills.

That's June Walker as "Babs" sitting next to Lt. Wally O'Brien.  Wally??  Does Bob look like a Wally to you?  Dill, Sheridan or even Dascom, yes, but Wally?? 

Anyway, I am excited about finally being able to replace my VHS recording of the movie.  Looking forward to watching a clear print, so I can enjoy young Mr. Montgomery to the fullest.  

TCM is showing five Montgomery movies this month (times given are PDT):

              April 10 - 9:45 a.m., Hide-Out (1934)

              April 28 - 12:30 p.m. Night Flight (1933)

He runs over a duck in this movie!

I prefer "Hide Out". Light comedy, dramatic ending, and he feeds chicken.

"Night Flight" is a great movie too, imho. Not much of RM in it though.

Robert - I like the animal theme of your comment. Had forgotten the duck scene. Maybe that's where he developed his love of bird hunting ...

Oh, yes, Hide-Out is definitely a winner, one of my faves. And his lothario in Night Flight...he did have that role down pat!
