About

Retrospective pays a centenary tribute to the late, great singing actor Howard Keel (1919-2004) with a wonderful array of the famous songs from his magnificent 50s film musicals. Keel was one of the most famous faces on the silver screen. Following on from stage success in Oklahoma!, Keel’s booming baritone and rugged good looks made him a big star of a whole string of marvellous 50s MGM musicals. Later, he trod the 70s and 80s nightclub circuit before achieving fame for a new generation as “Clayton Farlow” in Dallas. With his rich, powerful voice and commanding stage presence (he stood 6’4”), he was dubbed a “singing Clark Gable”.

As a homage to one of the truly great musical stars, we present Bless Yore Beautiful Hide. This was perhaps Keel’s best-known song, from his greatest triumph Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (1954). But there are also 27 other musical highlights drawn from the soundtracks of this and 10 other films of the 50s, including Annie Get Your Gun, Show Boat, Calamity Jane, Kiss Me Kate, Rose Marie and Kismet. Also featured are his co-stars Kathryn Grayson (in seven duets), Betty Hutton, Doris Day and Jane Powell.
