Handsome Portrait Photos of George Montgomery in the 1940s and ’50s

Born 1916 in Brady, Montana, American actor George Montgomery signed with 20th Century Fox in 1939. His first film at the studio was The Cisco Kid and the Lady (1939), the first of the Cisco Kid series.

Montgomery was promoted to leading roles in a melodrama written by Dalton Trumbo, Accent on Love (1941). Fox then starred him in some B Westerns: Last of the Duanes (1941), Riders of the Purple Sage (1941), and The Cowboy and the Blonde (1941).

Montgomery is best remembered as an actor in Western films and television. In the 1958–59 season, Montgomery starred in his own 26-episode NBC Western series, Cimarron City as Mayor Matt Rockford, through his own production company Mont Productions. He claimed to have turned down the lead roles in the Western television series Gunsmoke and Wagon Train. Cimarron City ran one season.

Montgomery acted in and directed Satan’s Harvest (1970), starred in The Leo Chronicles (1972) and The Daredevil (1972) and helped produce The Proud and Damned (1972). He also starred in the TV movie Ride the Tiger (1970) and made guest appearances on 1970s television shows including The Odd Couple and The Six Million Dollar Man.

Montgomery died at home in 2000, aged 84. For his contribution to the television industry, George Montgomery has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6301 Hollywood Blvd. In 1995, a Golden Palm Star on the Palm Springs Walk of Stars was dedicated in his honor. He is also honored with a statue in the square of Plentywood, Montana.
