Circa 1940's Pencil Signed Album Page. The original collector has pasted on a large newsprint photo of Powell.
Dick Powell was an actor from the 1930s to the 1960s. Some of his movies include: Just Around the Corner, Gold Diggers of 1933, Murder, My Sweet, Footlight Parade, and The Bad and the Beautiful. He was a light romantic musical star in the 1930s (and he released several albums during this period), and then he completely "reinvented" himself in the 1940s, playing tough guys in movies such as "Murder, My Sweet"! He was married to actresses Joan Blondell and June Allyson. He was one of the many actors who died from cancer after filming the 1956 film The Conqueror, which was shot downwind from nuclear weapons testing sites. He passed away in 1963 at the age of 58.
