    So last week there was a Howard Keel Day. I had seen his stuff before and just loved him. So I taped more. I cant bring myself to erase his movies. I just keep watching them over and over. enthrolled with his manly stature and the way he held himself. He was what men were. Bold and Brawn. Barrel chested and even though he was 6'3 and seemed to be the tower of strength , he was so gentle with the ladies when it came down to romance. Well...unless they needed a good spankin like in Kiss ME Kate. He's my #1 now and I just love the guy and appreciate what he did for movies. I know he had some skeletons as do all actors and actresses but he never let that show. Everyone has that and I think Hollywood somtimes turnes that into them....hence poor Judy Garland. Im only 29 and I grew up on the old stuff and the musicals. I graciously thank my Dad especially. Thats the way a men should be. You dont see that anymore. Nor in women as well. The movies today pretty much cant hold a candle to what the oldies do. I only wish I could have met all of them and especially Mr.Keel and told him he was an inspiration. Of course after pickin up the jaw off the floor in awe of the man. LOL.... I cant imagine acting with that man and how the women ever did it. It would have been cut after cut with me. The guy had it. That spark. That charm. AS did many of those men in that era. All I can say is Howard Keel, I love you as an actor and I respect you. I wish I truly could have met you. I would love to meet a guy like you but doubt that exists...haha and may prepetual light shine upon your soul. You truly were a gift from God. I hope your voice is used among the choir in the heavens. ps: looking forward to sept 17th when your next movies come out. TCM..you Rock

    Howard Keel embodies everything one looks for in an actor. His talent and performances speak for themselves. Whenever I watch any of his movies, I sit there captivated by his presence. He is beyond words. What would be really be great is for TCM to show his non-musical movies. It's wonderful seeing his musicals! It will be even better being able to view ALL his movies...musical and non-musical. Let us see his "other" side, TCM!! I've been aqsking for a long time for this! Please, make my wish come true. I know his other loyal fans will appreciate it , too!!! Thanks, TCM.

    I worked in Palm Springs, CA at Time Warner cable. I was in our lobby one day and saw a very handsome man who looked very familiar. I walked up to him and said, "You look just like Howard Keel" at which point his wife said, because he is Howard Keel. What a thrill. And what a gracious man he was.

  • What a great man with a great voice

    I knew him well from Las Vegas. I work with him and became good buddys. He lost my car one time and we couldn't find it. We had the same agent and work together. And played golf and drank a little. I MISS HIM VERY MUCH ....And a great talent

    One of the most underused and undervalued of Metro's stable of leading men, he more then held his own against the Waynes, Douglases, Garners, Hudsons, Bogarts and Pecks. And he could sing, too! I can't get enough of him on screen. Too bad there isn't enough!!

  • wonderful

    Movie after movie, song after song, this handsome and versatile actor continues to appeal and engage audiences of every culture, nationality, gender and age. "Showboat" is the perfect vehicle that demonstrates his natural singing and acting ability enhanced by pure talent, class and sensuality. He delivers it all with ease and originality on celluloid. I wish he was still around. No one else like him. Thank you, TCM!
