Three Excellent Portraits (& None of Them Bob)

 I dare say, morning suits and tuxedos are wonderful articles of apparel for men to wear.  They do wonders for most men.  Our Mr. Montgomery in a tux ... to die for.  Even a fully attired Walter Huston makes for a dashing gent.  I have always been a tad envious, not having a similar item in my wardrobe.

Just as Mr. Huston's portrait illustrates the character he is playing, this portrait of Glenn Strange (yes, of Gunsmoke fame) quite simply states who he is in the movie ... the bad guy!

It took me some time to be able to visualize Reginald Owen outside of one of his many character roles.  The man played such a wide range of roles, from Bob's brother to Ebenezer Scrooge.  Below he is Mr. Foley, "the kindly neighborhood grocer" in The Miniver Story (1950).
