Politician?[edit]

Could Robert Montgomery (actor) be classified as a politician? His name figures on List of actor-politicians but not much in the article suggests that he is a politician. Any pointers? --Gurubrahma 14:00, 2 January 2006 (UTC)

I don't think he could be classed as a politician as such. I would even stop short of calling him a political activist, but he was certainly very politically aware. He was a long term President of the Screen Actors Guild, and was credited with cleaning up the industry to a large degree from the influence of organised crime, and certainly this required political acumen especially when dealing with the unions. He worked for Eisenhower during his administration, as an advisor, with his chief function being to groom the President for public speaking, something that did not come naturally to Eisenhower. Once again, that's not direct political involvement though he was a member of the President's staff, and from what I've read, also a staunch supporter of him. At the end of the Eisenhower administration Montgomery turned to business - once again not a political move. Aside from the situations I've mentioned, any political statements he may have made during his lifetime, were as a private citizen. Personally, I don't think he should be on the List of actor-politicians. Hope this helps. Rossrs 14:14, 2 January 2006 (UTC)

daughter's age at her death[edit]

R.M. page sez Elizabeth M. died at age 62. Her page sez 57. Math using birth/death years on her page sez 57 is right.

--She was born in 1930, according to the Hall of Records.Chandler75 (talk) 21:04, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

Oscar Host?[edit]

This article indicates that Robert Montgomery hosted the Oscars for 1948. But the Wikipedia article on the 21st Academy Awards lists George Montgomery as the host. Is it possible that someone has confused the two Montgomeries? 76.90.37.112 (talk) 23:40, 29 March 2008 (UTC) F. Smith

Trendsetter[edit]

Montgomery's eyebrows arched to an acute point. Many subsequent actors and actresses followed this trend but Michael Keaton came closest to duplicating the Montgomery look.Lestrade (talk) 22:51, 21 May 2009 (UTC)Lestrade

Spelling of Marlowe's name in "Lady in the Lake"[edit]

Based on this explanation, I think we should make sure to keep the spelling as "Phillip" Marlowe in Montgomery's credits on this page. KConWiki (talk) 04:44, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
