Howard Keel

HOWARD KEEL (1919-2004), born Harry Clifford Keel

He is one of the favorites.

Annie Get Your Gun (1950)
Haven't you seen Annie Get Your Gun (1950)? I loved him as Frank Butler and Betty Hutton as Annie Oakley

Watch this and then see these other four films.

Show Boat (1951) as Gaylord Ravenal, Kathryn Grayson as Magnolia Hawks, and Ava Gardner as Julie LaVerne
Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (1954) as Adam Pontabee and Jane Powell as Milly
Kiss Me Kate (1953) as Fred Graham and Kathryn Grayson as Lilli Vanessi, Katherine
Kismet (1955) as The Poet and Ann Blyth as Marsinah

  • Another must see is of course the very entertaining Calamity Jane with Doris Day in the lead role and Howard Keel playing Wild Bill Hickok. Great singing by the both of them what magnificent voices.
