Montgomery played men who needed women. He didn’t need them in the Gable way––needing them and not knowing it––or the Cagney way, needing them but knowing they’d always be around. Montgomery’s characters knew they needed women. They needed girlfriends, lovers, mommies, wives, and nurses, and when they found a woman who was all of those things, they wanted her. It was the one thing they knew. It was their one saving grace. -Mick LaSalle
