Howard Keel

Howard Keel (April 13, 1919 – November 7, 2004) was an American actor and singer and star of some of the most famous MGM film musicals ever made.

At the age of 20, he was encouraged to take singing lessons and his first public performance took place in 1941, when he played the role of Samuel the Prophet in Handel’s oratorio Saul.  In 1947 he travelled to London (UK) with the cast of Oklahoma! where his performance garnered multiple encore calls.

After joining MGM Howard Keels career as a musicals actor really took off with appearances in Annie Get Your Gun (1950),  Show Boat (1951), Calamity Jane (1953), Kiss Me Kate (1953) and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (1954) and Kismet (1955). Throughout the 1960’s he continued to appear in films (but not with a musical theme) and later took a role in the TV drama series Dallas.
