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!
