Richard Arlen ... and a Few More Others!

 Another more recently acquired heartthrob of mine, Richard Arlen.  My, but he was a gorgeous young man.  

Tom Selleck, Richard Arlen ... beginning to feel a little slutty.  Sorry, Bob.  

                Richard Arlen in Touchdown! (1931)  Born 9-1-1899

                                      HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

Another Trip, Another Train ...

Robert Montgomery, popular MGM star, snapped on his arrival in New York with Mrs. Montgomery.  Mr. Montgomery last appeared in "Another Language" ...

                  Bob and Betty arrive in New York (July, 1933)

Bob liked his wives short.  Not sure of the exact height of either of the Elizabeth's, but no taller than 5'2" either of them, guessing 5 even for Betty.  Notice how she has had to reach up to hold his arm. 

One more enlargement of the photo, for a closer shot of Bob.  Too cute.

Bob Is My Favorite (there are others!)

 I have been a Tom Selleck fan since the 1970s.  A real hunk of a guy.  Not exactly a Montgomery type, but the man makes me smile.  That's what counts, right?!  Maybe it's the mustache.

If He'd Only Written His Biography

 Bob died Sept., 1981, he is going on 76 when he gave this interview.  Excellent interview, the interviewer just lets him chat on.

A Handsome Dude in Any Form

 The artist's signature is Sotero.  Haven't discovered anything about him/her, except that I did run across drawings of William Powell and Joan Crawford by the same artist.  So, it was probably a promotional campaign of MGM's.  Joan's is dated 1938.  I so admire the ability to capture a likeness with so few strokes.  The rather faint tuxedo collar and tie, Bob's furrowed brow ... nifty.

And Which is Your Favorite Non-Bob?

 Ray Milland?  Walter Pidgeon?  Marlene Dietrich?

And Which Is Your Favorite?

 Okay.  There are two photos of Bob in his "real" dress uniforms, and three in movie produced uniforms.  I consider the pilot uniform to fall under the 'dress' uniform heading, it has a mink collar after all!  So which would turn you on the most?


Hard to choose, isn't it!

The hair, the eyes ... just everything

Such a gorgeous still ... the lighting, the mood, the subject. 


The subject ... just beautiful.  I just LOVE ROBERT MONTGOMERY!***

*** I was inspired by Debbie's comment about William Powell, two posts back.   Didn't want Bob to feel underappreciated.
