Robert Montgomery

Shop by the Stars aisle featuring Robert Montgomery (1904-1981) vintage movie cards, still photos, ephemera, and other collectibles.

Fishkill Landing, NY born Montgomery debuted on Broadway in 1924, and kept busy on the New York stage through 1928. His film debut came a year later, and a year after that he had an important supporting role for MGM in The Big House (1930). Greater stardom came as Norma Shearer's leading man in The Divorcee (1930), Strangers May Kiss (1931), and Private Lives (1931). By this time Montgomery had established a strong screen presence as a witty young sophisticate. He appeared in titles like Letty Lynton (1932) with Joan Crawford, When Ladies Meet (1933) with Ann Harding and Myrna Loy, Riptide (1934) with Shearer once more, but it was a much darker performance in Night Must Fall (1937) that earned Montgomery the first of his two Academy Award nominations for Best Actor. The second nomination came in lighter fare, Here Comes Mr. Jordan (1941), soon after which he joined the Navy to serve in World War II. Upon his return he starred with John Wayne in John Ford's They Were Expendable (1945), a film which gained him his first directorial experience. Montgomery next starred in and directed Lady in the Lake (1945), one of his last few Hollywood features. He hosted, produced, and sometimes acted in the 1950s television series Robert Montgomery Presents, which won a Primetime Emmy for Best Dramatic Program in 1953, and also served as launching pad for daughter Elizabeth Montgomery's successful career. In 1960, Montgomery produced, directed, and narrated The Gallant Hours (1960) starring James Cagney as Admiral Halsey. Montgomery wore many hats throughout his life and career: soldier, actor, director, producer, president of the Screen Actors Guild, advisor to President Eisenhower, and public television advocate, among others. Other movies starring Montgomery that I recommend include: The Easiest Way (1931), Hide-Out (1934), Piccadilly Jim (1936), and, of course, Mr. & Mrs. Smith (1941).
