One Handsome Gent (Well-Dressed too!)

This photo was used on the cover of Cine Monde, a french magazine, in 1933. ( I was relieved to discover that there was no inside article on him that I would have to translate, my interest was purely the photo anyway.  Do note the spelling of Bob's name in the blurb!)

28-year-old Bob was just so very handsome, and this is a nifty photo of him.  He appears to be modeling the perfect ensemble for recreational horseback riding, for the country club set.

I later realized I had a sister photo ... two excellent environmental portraits. 

Almost as good as this one, taken a few years later on his new yacht.  Still handsome and wearing the perfect yachtsman attire, I'm sure.  The man had class.

And two alerts for Bob movies on TCM:  Another Language (1933) will be shown tomorrow at 2:30 p.m. EST/11:30 a.m. PST, and The Divorcee (1930)'s showtime is Thursday at 7:30 a.m. EST/4:30 a.m.
