All Good Wishes ... Robert Montgomery

I have grown to really appreciate this photo of our 43-year-old Bob.  It is 1947 and Bob has just signed with Universal Pictures, so new studio portraits are needed.  No longer one of the celestial beings of MGM, Bob simply looks more down-to-earth.  Well, still not exactly "one of the guys" ... Bob was always unique, special. 

The postcard was probably signed some years later.  And, in all likelihood, signed by Bob himself!  I just don't see people who forged his signature wasting their time on a postcard.  So, a double pleasure; a favorite photo and something Bob handled.  Be still my heart...
