THE EARL OF HOLLYWOOD
THE LIFE AND CAREER OF ROBERT MONTGOMERY
This website is intended to be an archive and documentation of the
life and career of actor/director Robert Montgomery, whose
contribution to the world of film is often forgotten.

Robert Montgomery was typecast in the early 1930's as a "playboy"
type and received comparatively few roles that were worthy of his
talent. In 1937 he fought hard to get the role of "Danny", the
irresistably charming companion with a deep, dark secret in "
Night
Must Fall
". A thriller set in the English countryside, this film cast
Montgomery against type and finally showed off his real acting
ability.

In retrospect Montgomery can be seen as a versatile actor, equally
adept at playing an English gentleman, a prison inmate, a boxer, the
gritty, world-wise detective Phillip Marlowe
or even a playboy type.

He is also distinguished as the father of Elizabeth Montgomery,
noted television actress and star of the series "
Bewitched".
