Robert Douglass Montgomery (October 29, 1907 – July 23, 1966) was an American film actor.
Son of a jeweler, he used the stage name of Douglass Montgomery when he first acted on stage in New York. He appeared as a ruggedly handsome fair-haired man, often slightly naive. He started his career in Hollywood, often playing the second male lead. Montgomery moved to Britain in the 1940s and made films there.
Montgomery returned to the USA and appeared in a number of TV shows.
Douglass Montgomery married British actress Kay Young (Kathleen Tamar Young) on 14 March 1952 at Bethlehem Federated Church in Bethlehem, Connecticut. He was her second husband. Young had divorced film actor Michael Wilding the year before she wed Montgomery. (Wilding also remarried in 1952, to Hollywood star Elizabeth Taylor.) Young and Montgomery remained married until his death.
Douglass Montgomery died of spinal cancer in Norwalk, Connecticut, aged 58, on July 23, 1966.
