good actor. seen a few of his movies. he was good in Our Man Godfrey a rich man who ends up in a dump and gets hired as a butler for a rich kooky family.He does not let on that he is rich until the end. I really liked in in Life with Father he was perfect as the head of the family in the turn of the century. fine too in Mr. Roberts as the doctor on the ship.had a long successful career.

Very charming and urbane actor who really didn't get the variety of roles he deserved.

The thing that makes me sad about the classic actors and actresses sections on RIA is that I realize how much the work of so many of these people are going to be lost to the generations to come. Their films are just not being shown and appreciated the way they once were. I think William Powell is definitely going to be or already is one of these people. His film career, which began in the early 1920’s, was one of the most prolific and successful of any of the film stars of his era. He is probably best remembered for his part as Nick Charles in the wonderful and witty Thin Man series of films, which ran from 1934 to 1944. He and Myrna Loy were absolutely wonderful in these films and their dry humor and clever banter is just as enjoyable to watch today as it ever was. Powell’s complete list of film credits is as long as your arm and his ability as an actor – from drama to comedy - is unquestioned. Now, we just need a cable channel dedicated to retro-films of the caliber of William Powell and other great actors of days gone by who were both classic and had class act to boot.
