One. 'Kismet.' And it was a bomb. "Oh, sure, the money was good, but let me tell you, it's not particularly good for your mental health or your ambition to spend three years on your seat. TV? Sure, I'd get offers. Plenty Before Metro snared him in 1948, he had -boomed his way through such" legit musicals as "Carousel" and "Oklahoma." His 17 pictures for MGM include "Annie Gel Your Gun," "Kiss Me, Kate" and "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers." "I am a little cautious about getting my feet too wet in TV," admitted Keel.

What happens? I'll tell you, and you wind up as the 'Thin Man.' That's the only way anybody ever thinks of you from then on. You're stuck with the tag." Keel is scrambling to make up for lost time. He did a Dinah Shore TV show a couple of weeks back and this Sunday will appear on the General Motors 50th anniversary spec on NBC-TV.
