Dick Powell is an incredibly underrated performer, and this book shows what a talented man he was. His diverse career choices included radio, film, television, and music recording which spanned from the 1920s until his death in 1963. This book features write-ups on his life and the various career paths he took including a full filmography section and a listing of each of his recordings. However, it serves best as a reference book because of its small but succinct biography.
