Not only is the very handsome Richard Chamberlain a fine actor on both stage and screen ( probably best known as a teen hearttrob in the popular 1960’s TV medical drama Dr. Kildare) but he is also a fine singer as evidenced by this his first album in 1962 (Richard Chamberlain Sings). If you go to YouTube, you can listen to some of his singing. Also on YouTube is a great personal interview he did in 2002 – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OJJIRc72oao

    Thank you, Michael for adding to the compendium of Richard Chamberlain arifacts. This is an excellent companion piece to https://www.alleewillis.com/awmok/kitschenette/2010/07/12/calling-dr-kildare/.

    Soon I will have Dr. Kildare himself walk through the portals of Willis Wonderland as I owe him a dinner after being invited over to his place to watch The Towering Inferno, where all night he shouted at his character, the evil and narcissistic Roger Simmons, “Don’t do it, Dick!‚Äù.

    I’m happy to report that Richard Chamberlain is still is as gorgeous as ever.

    I just reserved The Towering Inferno from the public library so I too can yell “Don’t do it, Dick!” Hope to see it within the week. Richard was fabulous in The Thornbirds, though his character really should have stayed with Meggie from the start. I can also recall a film in the mid 60’s with a character named Mrs Brown in it. Don’t remember the title, but we came away singing…” Mrs Brown you have a lovely daughter”. I followed his career when he went to England years ago, returning an even finer actor than before. No wonder all our hearts went pitter pat.
