DOUGLASS MONTGOMERY. Photograph signed: "Sincere Greetings/Douglass Montgomery". Sepia with yellow hue, 7½x9½. An actor whose career might have been hampered by a succession of screen names, Douglass Montgomery (1907-1966) was born Robert Douglass Montgomery. On stage in his teens, MGM scouts nabbed him and changed his name to Kent Douglass for films in the 1930s. A perfectly dashing, romantic presence similar to Leslie Howard, the fair-haired young man played second leads opposite some of MGM's powerhouse ladies, including Joan Crawford in Paid (1930) and Katharine Hepburn in Little Women (1933). By this time his moniker had been changed again to Douglass Montgomery; he was loaned out to other studios for The Mystery of Edwin Drood (1935) and Harmony Lane (1936), in which he portrayed composer Stephen Foster, and Bob Hope's comedy classic The Cat and the Canary (1939). By WWII, his career had waned and he enlisted with the Canadian infantry. He later starred in a few British films. Stained.
