  1. That man is achingly pretty, isn't he? I liked him best in The Razor's Edge and Nightmare Alley, but his dashing roles are something I can't help but watching when they are on too. I wish I lived near California, but I'm in the good old Midwest. Well, I'll just have to make my own event and get out his movies from my collection!

    1. I plan to go to the memorial next year, now that I know it's an annual thing. And -yes!- he is achingly beautiful. He slightly resented it, because people wouldn't take his acting seriously sometimes. Nightmare Alley is still one I haven't seen. I'll seek it out now. Thanks. By the way, have you read his daughter's book: SEARCHING FOR MY FATHER, TYRONE POWER? I'm reading it now and it's brilliant. It's really Tyrone, not the movie star, but Tyrone the man.
