He Could Still Put a Smile on a Lady's Face

There aren't many off-screen pictures of Mr. Montgomery taken in the late 1940s, which I find rather unfortunate.  Of course he was aging, but he seemed so much younger (and handsomer) in the few candid shots I have seen, than on the big screen with a lot of make-up to hide the wrinkles. 

I like the squinting eyes.  Not used to a flash camera?  Our myopic Bob trying to see John's face clearly?
