40 Handsome Portrait Photos of Robert Montgomery in the 1930s and ’40s

Born 1904 in New York, American actor Robert Montgomery began his acting career on the stage, but was soon hired by MGM. Initially assigned roles in comedies, he soon proved he was able to handle dramatic ones as well. He appeared in a wide variety of roles, such as a weak-willed prisoner in The Big House (1930), an Irish handyman in Night Must Fall (1937) and a boxer mistakenly sent to Heaven in Here Comes Mr. Jordan (1941). The last two earned him nominations for the Academy Award for Best Actor.


During World War II, Montgomery drove ambulances in France until the Dunkirk evacuation. When the United States entered the war on December 8, 1941, he enlisted in the Navy, and was present at the invasion at Normandy. After the war, he returned to Hollywood, where he worked in both films and, later, in television. He was also the father of actress Elizabeth Montgomery.

Montgomery died of cancer in 1981, at Columbia-Presbyterian Hospital in Manhattan, aged 77. These vintage photos captured portraits of a young and handsome Robert Montgomery in the 1930s and 1940s.
