Garlow ( 2009-06-15 )

Source: not available

Doug McPhail was introduced into roles through, in part, Jeanette McDonald where he appeared in the chorus for the film "San Francisco". He was the "second" Nelson Eddy, with a rich, deep baritone voice heard in Broadway Melody of 1940 as he sings "I Concentrate on You" to Eleanor Powell danceing ballet. He also was Eddy's counterpart in Sweethearts to MacDonald's character. A brief marriage to Betty Janes, another singr/actor was shortlived. With dwindling interest in his brand of singing in the early to mid-40's, he began drinking heavily and after one unsucessful attempt at suicide, he succeded by poisoning himself in 1944 at the age of 30.
