    Seven Robert Montgomery Photos. Robert Montgomery was a major MGM star, a USNR Commander, the president of the Screen Actors Guild, a film director, a Tony Award-winning Broadway director, an early TV star (Robert Montgomery Presents), and the father of Bewitched star Elizabeth Montgomery. This lot offers tribute to Montgomery with a striking 10" x 13" exterior shot of Robert with Constance Bennett in 1931's The Easiest Way, with original snipe (torn but complete) en verso; a paper 8" x 10" portrait with facsimile signature; a full-length 10" x 13" portrait of Montgomery in The Earl of Chicago (1940), with MGM photographer Willinger's stamp on it; another 10" x 13" from The Earl of Chicago, with Ronnie Sinclair and the Willinger stamp en verso; a 10" x 13" portrait of Montgomery in Yellow Jack (1938), with the stamp of legendary MGM photographer Clarence Bull plus production information en verso; a 14" x 17" shot of Montgomery, Helen Broderick, and Frank Morgan in Piccadilly Jim (1936); and a 14" x 17" portrait of Montgomery with Rosalind Russell in Night Must Fall (1937), in which Montgomery gave probably his finest performance as the psychotic Danny. All the pieces are in Very Fine to Excellent condition.
