Inscribed Photograph signed: "To Rosaline/Best Wishes/Dick Powell/&/Joan Blondell", Sepia 8x10. Actor DICK POWELL (1903-1963), born Richard Ewing Powell, sang and played several instruments in live performances and on radio in the late 1920s, and he had some hit records. In the 1930s, Powell moved to film musicals, including 42nd Street (1933) and The Gold Diggers of 1933. He began playing dramatic roles the following decade, beginning by playing Philip Marlow in Murder, My Sweet (1944). Powell also appeared often on early TV, hosting The Dick Powell Show from 1961 until his early death from cancer. He was married to actresses Joan Blondell (his second wife, 1936-1944) and June Allyson (his third wife, 1945 until his death in 1963). Nominated for the 1951 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress (The Blue Veil), JOAN BLONDELL (1906-1979) starred in films and on Broadway. She was starring on Broadway with James Cagney in 1929's Penny Arcade, and reprised her role in the 1930 film version, the first of six films (including Public Enemy, 1931) that she would make with Cagney. Her memorable films include A Tree Grows in Brooklyn (1945) and The Cincinnati Kid (1965), and Blondell also appeared in several made-for-TV movies, was a featured performer on two series (Here Come the Brides, as Lottie, 1968-1970; Banyon, as Peggy Revere, 1972-1973) and made a number of TV guest appearances from 1951 through May 1979, just six months before her death on Christmas Day. Blondell's three husbands include George Barnes (1932-1936), Dick Powell, with whom she made ten musicals (September 19, 1936-July 14, 1944) and producer Michael Todd (1947-1950). Overall, fine condition.
