Douglass Montgomery (from the trailer for the 1933 film "Little Women")


American film actor, credited as Kent Douglass from 1930-1932, who often appeared as a handsome, if slightly naive, fair-haired young man.

The son of a jeweller, he gained early acting experience in New York City and at the Pasadena Community Playhouse.

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 Royal 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.

Montgomery was married to British actress Kay Young from 14 March 1952 until his death. He died of spinal cancer in Norwalk, Connecticut, at age 58 on 23 July 1966.
