Henry Montgomery, a former student at Pawling School (who changed his given name to Robert in 1924) played a starring role in the motion picture"Piccadilly Jim" (1936), alongside another famous Pawling School alumnus - Frank Morgan, that is, the above-mentioned Frank Wuppermann of Pawling School, who changed his last name when he moved to Beverly Hills, after landing a contract with MGM. Like Montgomery, his acting career took him first to Broadway and later to Hollywood. In the 1937 film "The Last of Mrs. Cheyney" Montgomery and Morgan again teamed up and were cast as brothers and potential suitors of Mrs. Cheyney, played by Joan Crawford. Morgan's most widely recognized role was as the title character of "The Wizard of Oz" (1939). Nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor in 1934 and Best Supporting Actor in 1942, Morgan's career was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for his accomplishments in motion pictures. Frank attended the Pawling School for one year from September of 1907 through June of 1908. Pawling School was renamed Trinity-Pawling in 1947.
