George Montgomery (August 29, 1916 - December 12, 2000) was an American painter, sculptor, furniture craftsman, and stuntman who is best known as an actor in western style film and television. He followed this with bit parts and additional stunt work as George Letz in mostly low-budget films. He was frequently cast in western films starring their number one box office draw, the singing cowboy, Gene Autry. Elevated to more important secondary roles, in 1938 he appeared as one of the six men suspected of being the titular hero in The Lone Ranger. He remained with Republic Pictures until 1940 when he signed with 20th Century Fox, which billed him as George Montgomery. At Fox, Montgomery appeared in more westerns including The Cisco Kid and the Lady (1940) with Cesar Romero. In 1942, he played opposite Gene Tierney in China Girl, jazz musician Glenn Miller in Orchestra Wives, and Ginger Rogers in Roxie Hart. The following year, Montgomery starred with Betty Grable in the Walter Lang-directed film, Coney Island. World War II interrupted his film career. He joined the United States Army Air Forces in 1943. On December 5, 1943, he married singer Dinah Shore, with whom he would have one child, Melissa Ann "Missy" Montgomery (b. 1948), during a marriage that lasted until 1962.
