DOUGLASS MONTGOMERY. TLS: "Douglass Montgomery". 1p, 7¼x10½. No place, no date. On his personal imprinted stationery to Mr. R. van Haecke. In full: "The date of your kind letter is May 9th 1940! It makes me ashamed to write the present date on this one - so I won't. You were kind to want my autograph and I am enclosing one on a phtograph (sic) as well as one on a sheet of note paper (not present). In some way the card you enclosed and the self-addressed encelope (sic) were mislaid and I hope these will replace them. I've been indulging myself in a complete and wonderful vacation this past summer; the first, really, that I can remember ever taking. Have spent most all of it out here in the country, at home with my family and it's sort of been like a 'vacation from myself' - if that makes any sense at all - as well as a vacation from the theatre and the East and New York and even old Hollywood and 'doing business' and writing letters etc., etc. In the meantime this is to remind you that you always have my continued good wishes just as you've so pleasantly reminded me I have yours". 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. Lightly creased. Fine condition.
