The Power of Mr. Powell
What IS it about William Powell that I continue to absolutely and perpetually smitten with? EVERYTHING, I think. Although I read a hilarious quote by Carole Lombard, one of Powell's ex-wives, in which she said something like, "The son-of-a-b*** never quits acting. Even in the bedroom," I think he just embodies cool, witty, dashing charm, not to mention impeccable style. His voice, his carriage, his mesmeristic eyes, his sense of dramatic and comedic timing...just brilliant. I adore the bottom pic--the body language in the image, the way he is looking at Jean Harlow, with whom he was romantically involved before her untimely death = just wonderful.
