DICK POWELL and LINDA DARNELL
Dick Powell and Linda Darnell sign a postcard on the back.
Postcard signed: "Dick Powell", and "Linda/Darnell", on verso, 5½x3½. Actor DICK POWELL (1903-1963) sang and played several instruments in live performances and on radio in the late 1920s, and had some hit records. He moved to film musicals in the 1930s, including 42nd Street (1933) and The Gold Diggers of 1933, and subsequent years. Powell moved to dramatic roles in the following decade, beginning by playing Phillip Marlow in Murder, My Sweet (1944). He appeared often on early TV, hosting The Dick Powell Show from 1961 until his early death from cancer. Powell was married to actresses Joan Blondell and June Allyson. Actress LINDA DARNELL (1923-1965) scored a personal triumph in 1944's September Storm and starred in the much-sought-after leading role in 1947's Forever Amber. She followed up this triumph with two of her best parts--Paul Douglas' "wrong side of the tracks" wife in A Letter to Three Wives (1949) and Richard Widmark's racist girlfriend in No Way Out (1950). Tragically, Darnell died in 1965 of severe burns suffered in a house fire. Ironically, she had a lifelong fear of dying in flames, speaking publicly of her phobia after appearing in a "burned at the stake" sequence in the 1946 film Anna and the King of Siam. Lightly creased and soiled. Overall, fine condition.
