It's "That Grin!" - No Matter the Age

Recently ran across another book about the young Mr. Montgomery.  It was published in 1932, follows his career up to Letty Lynton (1932).  It is a paperback in the unusual size of 6-1/4" by 8", and has about 60 pages, mostly stills from his movies. 

I rather like the back cover ... wouldn't it be great to have a life-sized standup of it?!

There are a few candids, and even fewer private photos, but they are "choice".  There are no particulars (i.e. age, location, ID of the man) provided for the photo below, darn it.  But isn't he the cutest young man.  There's really no doubt that it's Bob, that face doesn't change for some time.

And the Montgomery flair for attire is certainly shown in these photos.  I've seen the photo on the right with the age of eight given, but to me he looks older than that.  Maybe it's the clothes and poise that make me think that.

What a cutie pie! I have recently come across a photo of him with Buffy in the late 60s and he still had that sweet smile. :)

Oh, yes, the fantastic smile. Just a tad mischievous, no matter the age.
