Richard Knox returns for another engaging series featuring outstanding singers from the 1950's. Presentations include 2 part programs on 6 different entertainers. This week and November 25th will highlight Shirley Jones and Howard Keel Parts 1 and 2.
Two of the greatest talents that enthralled audiences of film musicals in the 1950’s were Shirley Jones and Howard Keel. Prior to her outstanding
dramatic work in films such as “Elmer Gantry” (for which she won a supporting actress Oscar) and her beloved television role as the matriarch of
“The Partridge Family”, Shirley appeared as the female lead in the film version of “Oklahoma” and “Carousel”.
Meanwhile Howard was starring in such outstanding film musicals as “Annie Get Your Gun”, “Showboat”, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers”, and “Kiss Me Kate”. Using a variety of video and audio clips, participants will have an opportunity to experience these two outstanding artists sing glorious melodies by composers such as Cole Porter, Jerome Kern, Irving Berlin, Jule Styne, and Meredith Wilson.
