Robert Montgomery makes his SUTS debut today. The debonair leading man has 14 films on the schedule. Here are some of my picks:
The Divorcee (1930)
Robert plays a small but pivotal role as the man who Norma Shearer decides to “balance the accounts” with after her husband confesses to an affair with a former girlfriend.
They Were Expendable (1945)
Robert returns to moviemaking after serving in WWII in this WWII war drama portraying the commander of a group of PT boats fighting in the Pacific. John Wayne and Donna Reed co-star.
Night Must Fall (1937)
Robert plays against his debonair type as an Irishman who takes a job as a old lady’s caretaker. However, he has a big secret hidden in a hatbox.
A Montgomery extra-I’ve linked the 1948 film The Saxon Charm, a film that is rarely seen. Also stars Susan Hayward, John Payne, and Audrey Totter.
