He was a hugely popular singer in films and on the musical stage, with a rich, graceful and powerful baritone voice together with commanding presence.

After starting his career as a singing waiter in Los Angeles, Keel became an ‘in-house entertainer’ for the huge Douglas aircraft manufacturing company.
