I'm another who believes he never received the credit he deserved as an entertainer. I'm always surprised at how many recordings he made during hs lifetime. There really is a lot of music available from him. He also recorded a lot of duets with Jo Stafford. And when he appeared in a movie, it was always a little better, just because he was there.

Really? I always preferred him over Joel, even on face value (in a photo, not on film). I always thought Joel was unemotional and bland compared to Gordon-- but then, if Joel could sing I might feel differently.

I always loved his voice. His recording of "The Birthday of a King" is the one I always go to at Christmas. A gorgeous voice and a handsome man. He was no slouch as an actor, either. I always thought he was underrated.

 

It was too bad he was an alcoholic, but he brought himself out of it and helped others afterward as well. Everybody's got problems in this world. He overcame his in the end.

Happened to rent OKLAHOMA from Netflix last week. had seen a touring company production of it recently here in Chicago, and thought of the movie soundtrack I remember playing and singing to when I was about 10 way back when.

 

He was so good. Great voice!
