Henry Montgomery made his acting debut in the play, "Nothing But the Truth" written by James Montgomery; it was performed by members of the Dramatic Club of Pawling School on Feb. 5, 1921 in the Village of Pawling at the Opera House and Ball Room adjoining the Dutcher House, a hotel. Since the school was all male, the boys had to play the female roles. Henry Montgomery, a member of the Fourth Form (sophomore class) at Pawling School played the role of Mrs. Ralston. In 1924 Henry changed his given name to Robert and went on to become one of Pawling School's most famous alumni. His career was honored with two stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame; the first was awarded for his accomplishments in motion pictures, the second for his work in television. Henry attended the Pawling School for two years from September of 1919 through June of 1921. Although he did not graduate from the school and subsequently moved to Hollywood, he later returned to the area and purchased a home in nearby Patterson, New York. Pawling School was renamed Trinity-Pawling School in 1947. See this exhibit's epilogue for more information about Robert Montgomery's acting career and life.
