A Tall, Blond and Handsome Hunk of a Brit

1.  Brian Aherne was a tall dude ... 6' 3-1/2"
2.  He co-starred in four movies with Rosalind Russell.  I'm sure Roz appreciated being able to wear high heels, for a change.
3.  Born May 2, 1902, in King's Norton, Worcestershire, England, U.K., and his birth name was William Brian de Lacy Aherne.  Sounds like a character in an 18th Century novel. 
4.  Close friend of George Sanders, one of the few.
5.  Survived a five-year marriage to Joan Fontaine.
6.  Had a pilot's license, even owned his own plane.  Not that common in the 1930s. 
7.  And the Montgomery connection ... appeared on Robert Montgomery Presents three times.
