I wanted to follow up on yesterday’s Or maybe like the Prisoner of Zenda post about classic celebrities who look alike.
I talked about how singer/actors Howard Keel and Harve Presnell looked and sang similarly. To recap, Keel was in movies like “Kiss Me Kate” and “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers” while Presnell was in “Paint Your Wagon” and “The Unsinkable Molly Brown.”
The photos I posted showed their physical similarities, but I am posting two videos to show their similar vocal styles. The first video is Keel in his role as Petruchio in “Kiss Me Kate” singing “The Life I Lead.” The second video is Presnell in “Paint Your Wagon” in his role as Rotten Luck Willy singing “They Call the Wind Mariah.”
