Biography

Harry Clifford Leek, 13 April 1919, Gillespie, Illinois, USA, d. 7 November 2004, Palm Desert, California, USA. By reversing the spelling of his name, the much more saleable Keel became a household name in the early 50s. 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. In 1945, he appeared in Carousel on the west coast and then travelled to the UK to appear in the London production of Oklahoma! At this time he was known as Harold Keel, having reversed the spelling of his last name. He subsequently changed his first name and after making a non-singing appearance in the movie The Small Voice (1948), he returned to the USA where he landed the role of Frank Butler in Annie Get Your Gun...
