#mcm: Dick Powell

Hi everyone,

As I flex my researching and blogging/vlogging muscles for 2016, I decided to do a #mcm (Man Crush Monday). I've never done Man Crush Monday before but I will begin by saying that most of my celeb crushes are dead. Which kind of sucks. Damn it.

Among these posthumous celeb crushes are Oscar Wilde, John William Polidori, Edgar Allan Poe, and Dick Powell (among others). Today for this #mcm, I will focus on the latter.

Powell was a very multi-faceted performer (and apparently a very astute businessman) in early Hollywood. But for a while, before he switched gears to rid himself of his 'good guy' image, he was very well-known for this awesome vocal abilities.

He is also the inspiration for the character Reginald Johnson in my book series, The Birthrite. 

So here are a couple videos demonstrating this:

One of his performances with The Mills Brothers:



And with Ruby Keeler, whom he also performed with frequently in the beginning.






So that is my first #mcm (Man Crush Monday)
