Robert Montgomery Presents - Career - Netflix

Montgomery used the stage name Douglass Montgomery when he started acting in New York. He often appeared as a ruggedly handsome, if slightly naive, fair-haired young man. He gained early acting experience at the Pasadena Community Playhouse. The film component of his career began at MGM in 1930, playing the second male lead in films such as “Paid” and “Five and Dime”. When he signed his contract at the studio his name was changed to Kent Douglass, to avoid confusion with that studio's star Robert Montgomery. Upon leaving MGM in 1932, he changed it back to Douglass Montgomery. Among his most celebrated roles was Laurie in Little Women (1933), opposite Katharine Hepburn's Jo March. He also played Johnny Hollis (“Johnny-in-the-Clouds”) in The Way to the Stars (1945). After serving in the Canadian Air Force during World War II, Montgomery moved to Great Britain and made films there. He later returned to the U.S. and appeared in a number of television shows.
