William Powell 125

PostSun Jan 29, 2017 5:14 pm


Actor William Powell, who has always been a favorite of mine, was born 125 years ago today, on 29-January-1892.

He started out in silents, sometimes playing villains, but found his place in talkies, when audiences could hear his wonderful voice. I'm a big fan of the Thin Man movies and everything else he did with Myrna Loy.

I always thought he was a July baby. Either way, Happy Birthday William. Watched him in The Emperor's Candlesticks the other day. Very good as usual.

Wow, we watched the first two Thin Man films last night, and didn't even know it was a special occasion!
